Madame Gandhi releases 'Young Indian Reimagined' remixes in collaboration with global artists

MUMBAI: Indian-American musician Madame Gandhi has today released Young Indian Reimagined, a new collection of remixes of her 2019 Visions track ‘Young Indian’. The remix collection is produced and selected as part of the “Young Indian” remix contest launched with Native Instruments’ community platform Metapop.

With an aim to give people a vibrant energy to dance and feel uplifted during challenging times, the ground-breaking artist connected with new collaborators through contest, receiving over 500 submissions from producers across the globe, with winning mixes by Sabrina Sabotage, Yash Pathak, Marina Machine, Rich Robbyn & BowlBay. Each of the final five tracks chosen showcases a diverse style of percussive dance music, spanning from Afrobeat and Reggaeton to Bhangra and Salsa.

Madame Gandhi explains the inspiration behind these new “Young Indian” remixes, “As a producer, I wanted to hold a remix competition to see where else we could take the song, and to connect with new collaborators digitally during this time of quarantine. I’m hype for you all to experience Young Indian Reimagined and travel around the world with me as we experience the track through multiple genres.”

From Gujarat, India, an accomplished music composer-producer, percussionist, sound engineer, and musicologist, Yash Pathak had the opportunity to share his mix for ‘Young Indian.’ Having his track picked out of final five, he said, “It was an interesting experience for me to create the mix for Madame Gandhi’s Young Indian Reimagined. I love every bit of the process and feel delighted to be a part of this creative journey. I hope it brings joy and happiness during these hard times”. Yash had the privilege of performing with the living legend Dr. A.R.Rahman’s at the Coke Studio, TED Talks, United Nations, IIFA, Amazon Prime series, SonyTV’s Jammin, Raunaq, among others.

As skilled an activist, leader and speaker as she is a musician and artist, Madame Gandhi was recently selected as a 2020 TED Fellow for her commitment to create meaningful and positive change, with her most recent TED Talk entitled ‘Why We Must Stop Dancing to The Sound of Our Oppression!’. She was also recently featured on PBS’ new digital series Self-Evident, an 11-episode companion series to PBS’ American Portrait project, a national storytelling initiative that looks at what it means to be American today. Continuing her momentum into the Fall, Madame Gandhi will join Free People’s “Creative Spirit” campaign alongside actor Indya Moore and model Indira Scott. In addition, having released her first two EPs as part of an overarching short-form album trilogy, Madame Gandhi will now begin her new partnership with Sony Music Masterworks ahead of the third and final installment in the series.
