Bhushan Kumar says, “Every aspect of this episode right from the vocals, to the composition, to the set, will put you in a mood for love. Pehli Pehli Baar and Dheere Dheere is a beautiful confluence of soulstirring vocals by Darshan and Prakriti and also boasts interesting musical arrangements by Abhijit.”
Speaking about blending ‘Pehli Pehli Baar’ and ‘Dheere Dheere’, music composer Abhijit Vaghani says, “Dheere Dheere has a contemporary melody and Pehli Pehli Baar is an iconic retro track. I chose them because I wanted to balance out the eras and the lyrics matched perfectly well. Darshan is a heartthrob of current times, most of his songs are based on love and he has a romantic aura. Prakriti on the other hand has a sweet tonality. Both their voices suit each other really well.”
Says Darshan Raval, “Mixtape as a property is fun for every singer and it was a pleasure being a part of this and sharing stage with Prakriti. Abhijit Vaghani’s seamless amalgamation of Pehli Pehli Baar and Dheere Dheere is commendable. I feel very lucky to be working on these tracks and I enjoyed every bit of it.”
Adds Prakriti Kakar, “It has been a beautiful experience. I’ve grown up crooning to these songs and performing them on Mixtape alongside Darshan Raval was dream come true. I can’t wait to see everyone’s reaction and I hope they enjoy this new mashup as much as we did creating it.”
