Hot Off the Oven: Lady Gaga Releases Indian Remixes of "Born This Way" Today
If the "Country Road Version" of "Born This Way" is not your thing, Lady Gaga gives yet another unique Bollywood-inspired remix of her hit. Produced by top Bollywood producers Salim and Sulaiman, in conjunction with fusion media company Desi Hits, the remix embeds Gaga's vocals into a sitar intro and dhol beats. Salim and Sulaiman are popular for harmonizing Western, folk, Hindustani, and Sufi influences in their music, and doing so has merited them ten industry awards, including an Emmy.
To further capture and connect with the Indian and South Asian market, Lady Gaga also released an urban-Desi remix by Culture Shock that fuses Bhangra with elements of Dubstep. It features both Lomaticc and Sunny Brown's vocals. Note that last year, Culture Shock produced urban-Desi remixes for Rihanna, Sean Paul, Jay Sean and Alesha Dixon.
