“It is in initial stages and nothing is finalized yet.”
Recognized as the “Holy Trinity of the British Asian” music scene, the awesome threesome established and steered an entire movement of Bhangra-R&B fusion. The boys are now working hard to reignite the music scene and create some more hits for their unique and much-loved genre. Famous for classics such as ‘Dance With You’ (Nachna Tere Naal), ‘Eyes On You’ (Remix), ‘Push It Up’, ‘Stolen’ and ‘Dil Mera’ from the Bollywood film ‘Kya Kool Hai Hum’, the musical maestros have recently been spending time in Rishi’s studio in London.
“The three of us had a really special thing together, an amazing vibe. We toured the world and had a lot of fun. Life takes you on different journeys sometimes, but all of us always knew we’d do something again eventually. We’re brothers so it would be inevitable!”

“Thanks for the amazing response to the Tum Hi Ho remix! I think it’s important to push yourself to try new things and as I’ve had a lot of people asking me to sing in Hindi, I thought I’d give it a go! ‘Tum Hi Ho’ was probably the most difficult remix I’ve done because to me the original song is so incredible.”
“It’s one of those songs that is really pure and minimal in terms of production yet full of emotion, meaning that it is very difficult to remix without taking away the beauty of the original song. I decided to experiment and once again push myself to do something different musically, and as my background is in R&B/Pop music, I applied my own formula to the song and decided to incorporate elements of one of my favorite R&B ballads – ‘You Got It Bad’ by Usher. To me the two songs are both equally meaningful and therefore work really well together.”
