Harj’s passion and skills continued to grow, leading him to perform around the UK with well established DJ’s and Artists. As well as performing with these DJ’s Harj Matharu got to shadow some of the best in the industry and gained experience and knowledge.
Over the years Harj Matharu collected & grew his music collection from a variety of different genres. Harj then decided that he wanted to take his talent further and step out of his comfort zone by trying out other areas of the Asian Music Scene. He started making mixtapes and remixes from his bedroom, which proved to be highly successful with an extensive number of online plays which helped build the brand “DJ Harj Matharu”. After a lot of positive feedback, Harj’s name grew and he then became in demand to book at events. Fusing over generations of music ranging from Bhangra to Deep House, Harj is proving to be one of the hottest properties in the Asian DJ’ing scene. Harj got signed up by Apna Djs in Leeds which helped further develop his career creating a unique style.
