Listen to one of the most prominent voices of the Brit-Punjabi ‘Bhangra hip hop’ music of the 90s, and who’s still rocking in Bollywood – Manj Musik, in this episode. He talks about the making of ‘RDB’ & its success, the reason why it doesn’t exist anymore & it’s just ‘Manj Musik’, today. He also recounts how Akshay Kumar discovered their songs and got them the big ‘Bollywood’ break, how different was his experience of making music with Himesh Reshammiya, then, and that one advice, given by Salman Khan, about ‘artists’ & ‘freedom’.
He talks extensively about the changing trends in music, over a period of two decades, his personal views on ‘remixes’, how experimenting is important and why one must trust their instincts. (‘Aaja Mahi’, one of his iconic songs, was rejected by almost, everybody!)
