DJ Amit Saxena launches first official Telugu mashup ever using songs from Allu Arjun’s film of ‘Ala Vaikunthapuramulo’ in association with Aditya music
DJ Amit Saxena released the first official Telugu mashup album ever. In association with Aditya Music, the DJ popular for his Bollywood remixes chose Allu Arjun’s ‘Ala Vaikunthapuramulo’ songs for his mashup. His album is peppered with dance music and has the world popular ‘Butta Bomma’ of course. In addition, he included the songs – ‘Samajavaragamana’ and ‘Ramulo Ramula’ ‘Ala Vaikunthapuramulo’ and ‘Oh My Daddy’ to make the mashup that is a little over 3 minutes, and is totally fun and enjoyable. The mashup which is seamless in its rendition and high energy has already found its way into the Hyderabad club scene.
“For few years now, Hyderabad has seen many bands presenting Telugu music, and a few places dedicating certain days for these bands to perform. However, until now no DJ has ever done an official remix. I struggled a lot to make this album. Through some friends and connections, I reached out to the music company and the concerned people, got them to approve the mashup of ‘Ala Vaikunthapuramulo’. It released just a few days ago and is already receiving much response on YouTube,” shares DJ Amit, who is currently freelancing at several clubs, and travels extensively.
Hyderabad has given me name and fame, and I wanted to do something here with the Telugu songs. Going forward I will be doing more, and have lot of plans
Earlier Amit has remixed Bollywood music and has made couple of Marathi mashup albums as well. His latest work is ‘Ratan Lambiyan’ from the film “Shershah” making him the first Hyderabad DJ to have worked with Sony music label. However, he is glad to have finally been able to do a Telugu mashup.
“Hyderabad has given me name and fame, and I wanted to do something here with the Telugu songs. Going forward I will be doing more, and have lot of plans. However, as far as mashups are concerned, I have given it a head start, and going by the good response, I am hoping that the music companies will be open to the idea, and more DJs would work towards this. I look forward to hearing more Telugu remixes in the clubs,” shares Amit.
“Change has to be there, but it takes time,” he states.
DJ Amit Saxena has been performing at clubs and private parties from his college days. He has been in the club scene since 2003, and would play all kinds of music. He began to play Bollywood music from 2007 onwards. Club scene has seen a lot of change from then to now. Today, in Hyderabad there are more bars, lounges and clubs, and some more are opening.
