“I don’t mind doing music in Bollywood. We have been lucky as people have been allowing us to do what we want. The working style is different as people set the mood and lyrics, but it is still fun,” Rahul told IANS.

“We won’t be the ones making item numbers as that is not our core skill. We are non-mainstream Bollywood with occasional performances,” he added.

Apart from doling out albums like “Desert Rain”, “Kandisa” and “Tandanu”, the band has rendered music for films like “Black Friday”, “Peepli Live” and “Masaan”.

Rahul says he seeks inspiration for his music from life.

“Life events inspire me, as life evolves events evolve. It is difficult to point to a particular thing or event. I don’t take inspiration from the music I hear but things which happen around me,” he added.

He feels EDM (electronic dance music) has taken over the Indian music scene.

“A lot more venues and avenues as opportunities, festivals and live playing venues have mushroomed. TV and radio is almost dead and everything happens on the web, even though it is cheaper and easier to produce music but you have to fight with a thousand listeners for your share, a lot of types of music has come up — biodiversity and styles in music forms,” he added.

Amazon’s Echo smart speakers would work with Apple Music beginning December 17, the company has announced.

“If you have an Apple Music account and have connected it to your smart speaker in the Alexa app, the speakers will be able to play music on demand. Apple’s $9.99 a month music subscription service will join Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Amazon’s own music service, and other options on Alexa devices,” CNN reported late on Friday.

The agreement is the latest sign of good relations between the two tech titans.

This comes barely two weeks after Amazon announced it was working with the iPhone-maker to carry its newest products, including iPhones.

The move will hit the third party vendors who sell new and refurbished Apple products on the e-commerce platform but the retail giant will gain from the deal, market research firm Counterpoint Research said last week.
