When asked about his new project TWIN CITY he quoted “I always Wanted to collaborate with the local Home Grown talents here . But I failed many times for silly things like Idea/Ego clashes, Dedication issues , time managements n a lot of factor. But Finally I met DJ Warris at Shine a light Music Festival @ Sa I Mika. Then everything changed. We came up with the Idea of performing together something unique. It took us a lot of time n practice as we were doing all experimental sets. Like playing Dj with live Guitar with delay effects n all. We are working on our full setup which is gonna be Live and unique.” Hence Twin CitY happened on June 2016 comprising of :
