Bollywood has been known for producing mash-ups since the beginning of time… romantic mashups, party mashups, festival mashups and the list goes on. However, T-Series gave us some hope of bringing back our favourite songs in a brand-new format. The T-Series Mixtape series is a collection of fusion mashups of well-chosen Bollywood songs that have touched our hearts and souls over the past couple of years.
Here we bring to you five of the hugely popular gems of the series –
High Rated Gabru/Ban Ja Rani – Guru Randhawa And Neha Kakkar
A romantic mashup with two of the well-loved songs of 2018, Guru Randhawa and Neha Kakkar have brought out a Punjabi fusion mashup of “Ban Ja Rani” and “High Rated Gabru”. The original songs have been taken from the movies “Nawabzaade” and “Tumhari Sulu”. The fusion is a perfect blend of a variety of guitars, violin electronic drums and other percussion instruments contrasted with the Punjabi dholak. Honestly, nobody had ever expected these songs to be sung to a Punjabi beat.
Ambarsariya/Suit – Guru Randhawa And Kanika Kapoor
A second Punjabi romantic collection packed in proper style by the singers, the singers take turns in performing the song. The modern background score with guitar, drums and piano work well with the dhol and the chorus. The songs have been originally taken from the movie “Fukrey” and “Hindi Medium”. If you’re a fan of Punjabi music, this is definitely a track that you should listen to.
Agar Tum Saath Ho/Maahi Ve – Jubin Nautiyal And Prakriti Kakkar
A soft romantic track is sung to perfection by the singers, as they take turns in singing the song. Nautiyal seems to have taken our hearts away with his rendition of the song, while Kakkar brings a soothing sensation to the entire composition. You will love the blend of hybrid drums, piano, guitar, duff and grand piano and the chorus. And you’ll notice the pathos in their voices as they sing the last portion of “Agar Tum Saath Ho” from the movie ‘Tamasha’.
Tu Jo Mila/Raabta – Jubin Nautiyal And Shirley Setia
Setia gave us a sweet female version of the feel-good song “Tu Jo Mila” from the movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, while Nautiyal aced the romantic song “Raabta” from the movie ‘Agent Vinod’. The unexpected pair works beautifully as they take on one song after the other. Of course, when they bring such emotion to the already-beautiful lyrics, the mashup is bound to be a huge success.
Tose Naina/Tum Jo Aaye – Armaan Malik And Tulsi Kumar
Armaan Malik has stolen our hearts with his amazing rendition of “Tose Naina”, while Tulsi Kumar gave a heartwarming performance as well. One could find themselves falling in love with the lyrics, voices and the musical background score. Where there are such beautiful songs to be performed, the quality simply has to touch the skies!
Though the original songs will always have a place in our heart, the mashups presented by the T-Series Mixtape series have been just as amazing. It’s totally worth listening to, so choose the song befitting your state of mind and lose yourself in their music.
