Lakha began his interest in Music at the age of 15. While in high school, he was involved with the Local University Bhangra ( A traditional north Indian Dance) Team. There he was met with the responsibility of either hiring someone to create the mix for the team, however he took it upon himself to make it. Spending countless nights working on learning the art, he was so intrigued and loved the challenge of taking conceptual ideas and incorporating them into his mixes. Few years later, he attended a party where one of his Relatives was DJing. So impressed by his mixing skills he was inspired to take up djing. From there was nothing stopping him.
He bought his first vinyl turntables (Technics 1200) and began mixing Bollywood music in his bedroom just like any other dj. He started off with the name DJ Lucky, but after being told from another DJ that the name Probe had been taken by another dj in Chicago, he decided to change his name. The name “Lakha” comes from the translation one in a Million, a name that was given by his fraternity who had seen the characteristic in his work.
He started to leave the bedroom and started to hit small parties. Influenced by
Persist went off to University of Texas at San Antonio in order to pursue his degree in Biochemistry and Finance..
Upon graduating from college, PURE ELEGANCE DJS moved to Houston, Texas and took his DJ talent with him. He wanted to revolutionize his performances by starting to Video Mix. Being able to add visuals to live mixing gave PURE ELEGANCE DJS an edge over other DJs in Texas. He was able to make guest appearances at clubs in Houston, Austin, College Station, and Denton. Returning to Chicago in 2010, PURE ELEGANCE DJS had become an official V5 DJ with a Saturday residency at Transit Nightclub, in addition to a 1st Friday of the month appearance at V-Live.
