No musician wants to rehash old songs, they’re forced to do it by producers: Amit Trivedi 

“It’s the producers and the labels’ pressure that we are catering to. So, it works beautifully and fantastically well here. Many music directors have complained about the trend, saying it is a reflection of lack of originality in film music. Because we are part of that (the system), we have to do that job. Trivedi said that the recreation as a theme suits this show because participating musicians add their own compositions and elements to make these songs sound like their own original music. The show will see different aspiring singers and music composers team up to recreate old Hindi songs. “Here (on the show), we have a proper format. Amit Trivedi added that it is never the prerogative of a music composer to rehash an old song, and it, in fact, is always the demand of the film’s producer. Over the last couple of years, there has been a rise in the remix versions of Bollywood songs from the ’80s and ’90s, with many of these tracks becoming the highlight of the albums. 2018-02-22T15:32:19+00:00″>

Calling the trend sad, Amit Trivedi said he doesn’t find it exciting to revisit someone else’s vision. No composer, no singer would ever want to sing a remix. This question, you should all ask them – why are they doing it, trust me,’ he said. It is not exciting that we have to create something that someone else has already done before. But for films, if you ask me, it is sad,” quipped Amit Trivedi. The show is about remixes. “The pressure is only from the producers and the labels. “For creators, especially for me as a composer, it is sad. A music composer merely caters to the producer or the music label’s pressure. It is someone else’s baby, which we would not like to touch, because at that time it was that person’s vision. Amit Trivedi made these remarks at the launch of his upcoming web reality show, The Remix, which is an Amazon Prime Video original. The Remix, which will have playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan and DJ Nucleya as the other two judges, will start streaming from March 9. Related News
