New Delhi, May 13 (IANS) Delhi-based music producer Su Real says initially, he was intimidated by Amit Trivedi but later he found the popular composer, known for his work in films like “Wake Up Sid” and “English Vinglish”, just a “cool dude”.
Trivedi was one of the judges of the new music reality show “The Remix”. Rashmeet Kaur and Su Real were announced as the winners of the digital show earlier this month.
“At first, I was most intimidated by Amit Sir. Sometimes, it seemed like we came from opposite ends of the universe in terms of music. As the show progressed, I was eager to show off my skills as a multi-instrumentalist, just like Amit Sir himself.
“By episodes four and five, we were finally receiving some positive comments from him and I started to relax. After the process of shooting the whole show and hanging out with him quite a bit, I’m pleased to report he is just a cool dude, with loads of jokes,” Su Real told IANS.
A few producers involved in commercial projects have approached him since the finale of “The Remix”.
“Everyone seems to want those ‘chopped’ vocals like I did for ‘Dhak dhak’. I got to do some such programming for Amit Trivedi but I’m not sure if it made the final cut for the project; anyway, it was an honour to be asked by guru.
“I am working on tracks with Rashmeet as well as Manasi Scott from the show. Meanwhile, (rapper) Hard Kaur has supported me for a long time and we’ve almost got a new single ready together.”
Su Real’s #Winning tour will kick off in Delhi on May 18, before travelling to Jaipur (May 19) and then to cities like Guwahati, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Mumbai.
“Well this tour is different because we have something concrete to celebrate. I’m looking forward to linking with fans and supporters who have been cheering Rashmeet and me on during ‘The Remix’.
“In Delhi and Mumbai, the shows will be extra special because I’ll be sharing the stage with some of my friends from the show – for example, Rashmeet will join me in Mumbai and DJ Skip will join in Delhi.
“Also, I have a lot of my own new music almost ready, and I love to be able to test them out on the dance floor before officially releasing them.”
