Mithoon on remix culture: I don’t feel it’s a healthy trend for the future of Hindi film music
Music composer and singer Mithoon has given many chartbuster songs in his career. Also, he bagged many awards for his contribution to the field of music. He started his career with ‘Woh Lamhe’ in ‘Zeher’ and ‘Aadat’ in ‘Kalyug’. He composed original music for movies like ‘Aashiqui 2’, ‘Ek Villain’, ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’, and ‘Kabir Singh’ to name a few.
In recent times, we have seen many composers have recreated or remixed old songs. Some remix songs are even criticised by the music lovers as it kills the soul of old songs. When we asked Mithoon his views on the remix culture, he said, “I don’t encourage it. This is my personal opinion and I don’t think recreating songs is exciting at all. I don’t even feel it as a healthy trend for the future of Hindi film music. I believe that India has a lot of talent who can create original music” adding “Look at ‘Kabir Singh’. The entire album was original and it was the biggest album of the year.”
During the lockdown, Mithoon has been working at his home studio. “I have been writing a lot of music during this lockdown and isolation and being a technician myself, I produce and arrange my own music. My entire team is working and we tend to continue and support the entire world to fight this pandemic with as much as social distancing we can,” said Mithoon.
