He wants to bridge the gap
And that's the chasm that Mummy Daddy Records hopes to fill. Featuring music by Sha'air+Func, Bandish Project and Jalebee Cartel, the records' first release, Compilation 01, represents the best of Indian electronica and independent music scene. "It's an exciting blend of urban electronic elements with a distinct Indian folk essence. Our aim is to create a platform for new sounds, independent music that everyone can easily access."
He plays mummy to his pals
Delhi-based Amrish lived in Mumbai's suburb of Bandra for a year, while he worked in the e-Commerce department of HDFC bank. Often, he found himself dropping friends home after a spirited night out. "One of my friends nicknamed me 'mummy' since I made sure everyone went home safe. When I decided to launch my company, they thought Mummy Daddy Records was a perfect name," he grins.
He's willing to wait
But the baggage of Bollywood doesn't irritate Amrish. Film music is sounding better these days thanks to talented musicians expressing an interest in Bollywood. "At the end of the day, it's getting your music available to the largest audience possible, that matters. Though I'd prefer it if songs didn't focus on Aishwarya's (Rai) legs, and the format was a little less restricting."
