Musicians Manmeet and Harmeet aka Meet Bros have churned out a lot of Bollywood numbers but they accept that the current trend of remixing old tracks is a business call.
“It’s never our first call to recreate a song. We are original music makers. But sometimes the producers and music companies realise that it’s a trend. These are all business related calls which companies and producers take,” says Manmeet.
A lot of tracks, such as Laila Main Laila, Humma Humma, reintroduced in recent releases, have received mixed reviews from music critics. Talking about the negative feedback, Harmeet says, “Honestly, for us, there is only one critic and that’s our listeners. It’s the audience who dictate what they want. Music is not something you can sit and pass your judgment on. If it’s a Humma Humma, which is creating a storm, it means that people like that old vibe which is coming back again.”
The Meet Bros have given party tracks such as Baby Doll, Nachan Farrate and High Heels, and for them, their music reflects their personality. “The thing that works for us is that we never take anything too seriously. We have never taken this as work or a serious career. Our music makes people happy. We are always having fun and love to stay energetic. That’s how we are and that is what comes out in our music,” says Manmeet.
