That’s why rising DJ Neha Khan, creates sounds that lead us to reimagine the genre in its totality. With her enigmatic tunes, no one can deny that her songs have something for everyone.

Bringing her passion to the forefront in the Pakistani music scene, she always pushes for a solidified base so that everyone in her genre can thrive.

I would definitely like the artists to not be taken for granted and to be respected enough to get paid what they deserve as compared to minimal to none.”
