Percept’s Shailendra Singh is riding a massive EDM wave right now and it shows no signs of slowing down.
Shailendra Singh, Joint Managing Director, Percept Limited, better known as the man who conceptualised Sunburn, has been listed in the prestigious “50 Most Powerful People in EDM 2013.” Otherwise known as the “Power 50” being hailed as a member of this exclusive club is no little feat considering he’s the first Indian to ever make it so far. The Global ranking was conducted by In the Mix, one of the world’s most influential EDM communities. Seeing as to how it’s viewed by over 6 million people around the world, this listing might just see Sunburn’s fame shoot up to dizzying new heights.
Singh, naturally, was over the moon with the news. “This is totally awesome honour–not just for me, but for Sunburn and for India, Sunburn has always been “of the fans, by the fans, for the fans”. We may have introduced the country to EDM, but it was the Indian fans that have bonded over the beats, banged it in, and shown the world how we party! We’ve put India on the GLOBAL MUSIC DESTINATION MAP! It’s a proud moment for India.”
Conclusively, this inaugaral listing is a seemingly fitting tribute to a man who brought the face of Indian music a proud new mask to wear. One that cannot be tarnished with time thanks to its epically sized proportions.
