Dutch DJ Tiësto and the UK’s very own Jaz Dhami have teamed with JioSaavn for a remix version of the track Bomb Bae. The track is a part of JioSaavns Artist Originals (AO) series. Tiësto has created his own version of the Jaz Dhami track which captures the ups and downs of love in the sprawling, chaotic metropolis that is Mumbai.
Tiësto is known for his creative collaborations and remixes, including a Grammy-winning remix of John Legend’s All of Me. Although Tiësto has toured in India three times, this is his first remix for an Indian-language song.
“The thing I love about music is that it is a universal language that transcends cultural boundaries. This is my first time remixing an Indian song, but not my last! The energy of music and dancing is all about feeling, not a language… and this song has a great vibe and feel to it,” says Tiësto.
Speaking on the collaboration, Jaz Dhami said
“When I made Bomb Bae, I knew it was special from hearing back the first melodies that Eren, Alan and I put down. Having Tiesto on board for the remix is definitely a treat for the EDM fans and more importantly the scene. Punjabi music has a global appeal, it’s good to see DJs like Tiësto co-signing our movement.”
The Bomb Bae is the latest in a series of global collaborations by JioSaavn’s AO. Some of the other popular tracks include Marshmello’s BIBA and hip-hop stars Divine and Naezy’s NY Se Mumbai with Nas.
The remix of “Bomb Bae” represents another step into the global spotlight for Jaz Dhami, who has established himself as a global artist with a true desi soul. He was the first South Asian artist to collaborate on the official BBC Music Launch Song, which featured 27 International artists including prominent names such as Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder, One Direction, Elton John, and Sam Smith.
