I have known Paresh and Naresh for over fifteen years now. And Paresh has been one of my favourite guitar players. Before I even started playing, I used to go headbang to Witch Hammer and Krysys and enjoy his music with those bands. From just watching him, to becoming friends with him and meeting him as a fellow guitar player, it’s just been a great experience. There’s so much to learn from him. And Naresh is a genius. I think both of them together have been instrumental in creating or sparking a lot of new music in the city.

With their long break and departure into pop music, I am really happy they’ve got Hipnotribe, because there, I see them in their true shape and form – writing and creating something that they are best at. That’s an inspiration for me and it will be nice if they keep it together because it keeps people like us and bands like us together and fresh and exciting. It also makes us feel like we are all part of a big scene, a movement. So for me, Hipnotribe is like a comeback for the both of them. It’s a bunch of brilliant musicians ”“ the best musicians in the world – putting together the sounds of Mumbai, the sounds of the world, the sounds of urban culture”¦
