Could you tell us more about your recent music project?

I am really vibing with BTS songs nowadays and I recently made a cover mashup of their popular song ‘Dynamite’ with Chunari Chunari which is an old bollywood song. In the video I have also danced in the original choreography of BTS songs Dynamite and Boy with love. The video was an instant hit and has garnered more than 1.8 Million+ views till date.

What message does it give?

Fusion has been my go to genre. The audience since the beginning has poured love to my hindi-English mashups which is influencing my original tracks also. It’s going to be a sweet bilingual love pop ballad talking about love, heartbreak and life.

How was your experience working on it?

Right before the pandemic hit, I was touring different cities/countries to perform live. After the global lockdown, as the world resorted to virtual gigs, I performed at different types of virtual events including one of its kind E-Sangeet too. Currently, we’re set to perform few college fests and private shows. Apart from shows, I have also started working on my original music. Thanks to the stay-at-home phase, helped me find creativity and to rediscover myself as an artist.

Challenges that u faced amid pandemic?

I had recently started doing more shows and i had more than 5 international ones in-line which were all postponed due to the pandemic. On the content creation aspect, I shoot, edit and record all my videos myself so it didn’t affect that. I also had a cook who couldn’t come so I had to clean the house and cook food myself which was both a fun and learning experience.

Upcoming plans and projects?

It’s a long due much awaited single which I have teased numerous times on my Instagram LIVEs and YouTube video. It has a sweet melodic pop vibe to it - the style drawn from my inspirations in the international music world like Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes. As I’ve always tried to fuse English and Indian style, this track also will feature a hindi/punjabi section making it a sweet Indo-Pop bilingual song.

Would you be doing more music projects?

Yes, I am very keen on collaborating with more artists from different genres. Previous collaborations I have done include Ananya Birla and Lisa Mishra. Also, I plan to keep creating more content for my YouTube channel apart from the originals that I plan to release on my channel.

With over 2.77M followers and 180 + million views on his YouTube channel, Aksh started out really raw with a mashup video of One Dance/This is What You Came For. He subsequently rocked several stage performances and online videos covering a plethora of genres by collaborating with accomplished singers like Internal artist Lauv, Ananya Birla, Lisa Mishra, and several others.
