The Iyer Mix…

All you peepull clickin the mouse…
This is yo DJ (Iyer) in the house


Gone are the days of original music. They are all a passé. What's rocking today are remixes… You'll find remixes everywhere… You'll find remixes of all sorts… You'll find remixes of all shapes and sizes (this more so applies to the models used in the remix videos… but still)… Remixes are there, and we think they are going to stay here for a long time to come… as long as there are people in the music industry who know nothing about music and still want to make something out of it… And long live those people… not because we love them… but because we are going to be a part of this gang… (Can hear loud shouts of " Please don't do it… Please don't do it"… decides to ignore those voices and move ahead with the post)


Coming to the point of the types of remixes, you'd find "Hip Hop Mix", "Calypso Mix", "Latino Mix ", "Dhol Mix" and many other variants of remixes. Sometimes these names take us away from music to food where we find similar readymade "Idli Mix", "Gulab Jamun Mix", "Kheer Mix" and all others of the same category. And with much difficulty, we bring our minds back to the point of this post. And thats... REMIXES… Now… We have analyzed this segment of the music market and have figured out that there has been no innovation in the remix segment for a very long time. And that this is the right time to cash-in with a new form of remix… something that will take the market by storm… something that is here to stay… that will appeal to both the masses and the classes alike… So ladies and gentlemen… presenting to you… " The Iyer Mix"…


Lets now dig into the details…


Firstly all types of remixes begin with a hip-hop style introduction. So we will also have an introduction for the Iyer Mix. And this is no hip-hop. This would be pure carnatic introductory lines, which go something like. Just one example for now…


All ammas and appas in the house…

Come and wear your dancing blouse… (Dancing shoes is kinda old)

Bring along your kuttans and kuttis…

Pull-up and tighten your dear dhotis… (Adi Talam & Thodi Raagam)


Secondly, the kind of instruments used in the Iyer Mix would be all that belong to South India. Digital sounds are a strict no no. We do not belong to the Rehman league. Generous doses of mridangam, ghatam , veena, nadaswaram, thavil, panchavadyam etc will be used to create a-la Pavarotti orchestra albeit in the southie form. Promoting the of the southie form of music is our onus and this form of promotion will have all the southie instruments played across all the houses ( especially when one picturizes the video on Sameera Reddy or Simran… that's right… the SOUTHIE BOMB WAGON).


Thirdly, frequent utterances of words like "aiyyo", "super", "poda", "patti" in between lyrics will just add that southie effect to the songs. This has been inspired by the hip-hop utterances of " er", "eh", "yo" and the likes. So whenever you listen to "I want to Break Free" followed by "poda patti" and then followed by a nice rendering of nadaswaram, it DEFINITELY is the Iyer Mix of the famous song by Queen. On special occasions we could request SPB to render his favourite " dhat teri ki" or "hay hay" for our songs to just to add that zing to those songs.


So that's the basic framework (pattern for the laymen) for the songs that would be remixed with the "Iyer Mix ". We are using this post as a pre-cursor to the release of our first album "Aapka Khajoor" which contains all the remixed songs of " Himesh Reshammiya" and his album "Aapka Suroor ". We are cashing in on his "talent" (or the lack of it) to compose songs and remix them by the next hour. Watch Out!!! We will screech your ears and screens (and probably crash both of them into pieces) by the next month…


adios…

Another exxxcellent idea saar. Iy am of the opinion that this effort that you have come up with truely deserves nomination for the noble prize for peace. We can now take 'super' bollywood hits like "Mere sapno ki rani" and "chura liya" and remix them all over again. It will surely result in more harmony and perhaps we will observe Bambaiyas and southies and other creatures all hitting the dance floor on the campus together with equal gusto.

The opportunities for import and export are also unlimited. Iy belive Nelly Furtado could triple sales on her latest album should she take a cue.

All royalties that are likely to accrue from above ideas saar, I would like to contribute to the acad's sinking fund..
