These youngsters are really rocking:
Rupam Jain (Indian Express)

"In their early twenties, Udyan and Mayur’s remix of ‘Do Naina, Ek Kahani’ from the Shekhar Kapoor film Masoom is the first to be played by the BBC station.

The song was selected for the Asian music section and played for over a week.
Both these GLS passouts believe that folk and traditional music of Gujarat is as vibrant as Punjabi Bhangra but needs to be marketed well abroad. ‘‘While playing an original track of R D Burman, we heard people in Dubai saying that this was the grooviest track they had ever heard. But here, Indians are more fond of remixes which kill the original track but manages to hit the charts as it has been marketed well,’’ says Mayur, who feels that upcoming DJs should ‘‘focus more on creativity rather than just mixing old songs."
