At UMG when we see this levels of acceptance it’s already time for us to take the game a level higher. Afrojack’s “The Spark” being officially remixed by Rishab&Prayaga.k.a Lost Stories is a monster statement for both my boys and my label having done something out of here that hasn’t been done before. It’s a sterling example of a label having faith in non-film and having the gumption to take music from Indie artists all the way up the value chain into the massive global EDM arena. We have spared no expense with the production of the track which I think is of global best in class standards and even mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. This is a massive step for the EDM genre for South Asia and I’m dead sure that this single will be the biggest thing out of EDM thus far.”
The single will be released later this week exclusively on Universal Music across all digital platforms.
