5Preview x SDNYC: DJ Kalkutta

kalkuttaIf you’re at a legendary party in NYC chances are you’ll see this girl spinning. Kalkutta is a New York based turntablist and producer who has graced stages Internationally as well as a myriad of Television and Radio shows.  As an infant, she was adopted from an orphanage in Kolkata, India by an American woman who gave her a chance at a brighter future.  She went on to study music at NYU’s Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music and picked up deejaying in an effort to support herself while she learned how to produce her own music.  She has since performed with the likes of Ke$ha, LMFAO, Karmin, A-Trak, Questlove, Samantha Ronson, and many more.  She’s also provided soundtracks for brands ranging from Betsey Johnson, Diesel, and Adidas Originals to Ferrari-Maserati, the Discovery Channel,  and Sephora.

When I started thinking of brilliant friends to ask for this project she was one of the first to come to mind. When I literally ran into her on the street that same day it was clearly meant to be! And it’s crazy how that fits perfectly with what she says she loves most about New York!
I love having the ability to check out a bunch of different venues and scenes every night- everything is so close together and there are always so many interesting parties going on 7 days a week- you never know who you might bump into!
