Nucleya aka Udyan Sagar is out with a new solo album, Horn Ok Please, which features remixes of popular Bollywood numbers such as Disco dancer, Aao huzur, Mein ek chor, among others. He has collaborated with Shivang, MC JD, and Sound Avtar for certain tracks.
Talking of how the album came about, he says, “I started work on this album a year ago. The idea was to remix Bollywood numbers but not in the usual way. What we generally hear in clubs, and even on CDs these days are very straightforward remixes. The track is almost original and people just add few disco beats on it.”
Nucleya promises that his album is different and says, “My idea was to redesign the format of how Bollywood remixes are done. I have taken the original compositions, entirely redesigned them with my own inputs. I have added more melody parts into them and changed the complete arrangement of the originals. I have then reformatted the tracks to fit into the Electronica genre in a posh way.”
He is pretty sure his tracks will be well received by the growing crowds in clubs. “There is a reason why Saregamapa, who has released my album, is backing me so strongly. They have heard all my tracks and approved them. In fact, I am even planning a major release of Horn Ok Please in London in July.”
Nucleya started out with Bandish Projekt remixing Bollywood songs, went on to create original compositions, which were critically acclaimed, and now, he is back to remixing. He laughs, “Ever since I started making music, which is 12 or 13 years ago, I have always remixed Bollywood. Previously, I would only play the remixes in my gigs, even get rave reviews for them, but not release them. That’s the only difference.”
Can we expect a collaboration with Mayur Narvekar, with whom he formed Bandish Projekt any time soon? “I have no hard feelings with Mayur. If things work out, we could start a new band. But as of now, I have too much work on hand. I am in touch with Mayur via e-mails and there are no ill feelings between us.”
