He is most proud of his song Jammu because it connects him to his Indian heritage.

 

 

 

Part of his surname, ‘Dhar’ hails from the ancestry of Kashmiri Pandits of India.

 

 

His inspiration for choosing KSHMR as his stage name is because Kashmir is also called ‘paradise on earth’.

 

 

 

After a year of DJing, he finally revealed himself at Ultra Music Festival in 2015 and was introduced by Tiësto.

 

 

He was originally a part of the hip-hop production duo, The Cataracs with David Singer-Vine.

 

 

KSHMR collaborated with The Golden Army to create a mix of the popular Game of Thrones theme.

 

He has recently launched his own line of kurtas as official merchandise.
