The concept of Mixmasters is totally dedicated to promoting the idea that when DJ's play as a team rather then as competitors, they are able to give out much better and more creative mix of music. But to ensure that there is no rehearsed mixes or last minute mismatches (as all mixes are on the spot and the whole show is very impromptu), it is very important that the DJ's involved not only have experience and a very positive outlook, but are also on the same creative level so that they can interplay with a smooth flow. Without that, the show would fall on it's face. That's why since the first event in 1997, the best creative and positive people have been involved with the concept. Show-offs and self-promoting individuals have been kept away to ensure that the team grows stronger and better. As the DJ's are the real stars of the show, given below is a small peek into their careers with their pics. Check out all the Mixmasters !!

DJ Ivan is undoubtably Bangalore's Hottest property in the DJ circuit. He is known to play the most current and popular music winning him a lot of Awards like DMC.

Being a serious believer in building up a night and then taking it through the roof, he is more of a solo-artist than an interactive team-type and so, has only been a part of Mixmasters for one year but, he supports the philosophy and encourages the tour.
