A much Needed Music Album – `ROCK ON HINDUSTAN’

The private Music Album culture is coming back and this is really good news! Ever since record labels drifted away more towards bollywood music, it has only been the digital platform where musicians have been able to present their music to the fans and has been at the forefront promoting and distributing music albums and singles by various artists for three years. That’s the short & sweet digital story but now what’s really good to see is that some record labels are also supporting private music albums and at the forefront of this is Crescendo Music.

Crescendo Music, in fact is a record label one would immediately associate with private music albums, with them having released music albums of some of the first Indi pop artists such as Baba Sehgal, Daler Mehndi, Piyush Soni, Sukhbir and more. And now, Crescendo music has just launched a brand new music album titled `ROCK ON HINDUSTAN’.

ROCK ON HINDUSTAN, is a modern six track compilation of Patriotic songs which have been Conceived, composed and produced by the young and talented Siddharth Kasyap, . The brilliant new album features  voices of Roopkumar Rathod and Madhushree with lyrics by Azhar Hashim and Shakeel Azmi. The album is a presentation of what the need of the hour is today in the country, with so many unpleasant issues surrounding the people. The production Value of the album is top notch, with the best of Musicians, engineers and technicians working their magic on the six songs. Traditional ethnic Indian sounds of the Sitar, Shenai and the Ravanhatta make this album a must buy.  Composer Siddharth sums it up all with the phrase, “You got to hear it to believe it”

ArtistAloud will keep you posted with all the updates on this album….Stay tuned

A Car, A Movie, A Party, all in one and all for free !!

ImageSo what is the single most important element you need to make and release a feature film, especially in today’s age? It’s a big budget… isn’t it!! No, that’s not really true….

Creative ideation, passion and a confident desire is all you actually need to pull off a feature film and release it too!! REB RIBBON music and film Maker Tejas R Padia prove it with their movie titled `LO HO GAYI PARTY’. This is no ordinary effort, LO HO GAYI PARTY is bollywood’s first ever Zero budget movie!! Yes, you heard that right, Zero budget!!

The movie has been in the making since January 2010, and every aspect that goes into the making of a film such as scriptwriting, music, casting, shooting etc has been done professionally. The team has been able to pull off a feature film with literally zero budgets with the help of likeminded passionate creative people who have supported the project in the logistics and resources required. ArtistAloud too has partnered with the team and is digitally releasing the Music of the film.

Lo Ho Gayi Party is a story of 5 friends, Vasu, Shibu, Vani, Aby & Teddy who desire to have a luxury car. They manage to get a car, but a drunken situation that goes beyond control changes the course of the story. What happens next is a roller coaster comic ride!  

The music of the film , which you can download is very commercial and runs along the storyline. The title song Lo Ho Gayi Party and the song Ooh La La are instant foot tappers!!

Lo Ho Gayi Party the movie releases officially on Red Ribbon Musik’s you tube channel on the 4th of January at 11 pm. It’s a Friday and is possibly the best and the cheapest way to a first day first show !
