Here’s something SPECIAL that was created in a very short space of time, as will be explained below.
It’s our boy, Mayur aka Bandish Projekt with our friend, and now a bona fide Bollywood movie star, the supremely talented, Monica Dogra from India’s leading Electronica act, Shaai’r & Func!
All I got to add is that there’s some SUBLIME original tracks to come from this duo and we’ll bring you more news about that in the near future.
Over to Mayur:
On Wednesday 13th July 2011 – the day of the 2nd wave of Mumbai bombings – Bandish Projekt (a.k.a. Mayur Narvekar) and Shaa’ir – from Shaa’ir & Func (a.k.a. Monica Dogra) joined Bobby Friction in the BBC Friction Lab to record a remixed track LIVE, in less than 2 hours!
What emerged was ’50 Ways to Leave and Come Back’ – a live mash up of the following 3 tracks.
All our thoughts were with all the people of Mumbai, and this track was dedicated to them.
Dhobi Ghat theme tune – by Gustavo Santaolalla
O Basanti Pawan Paagal – by Lata Mangeshkar (from the Movie ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’)
50 Ways to Leave Your Lover – by Paul Simons
*This recording took place at BBC Studios in Birmingham, England*
Watch the making of the track here.
