Amazon Prime has launched The Remix – thus becoming the first streaming platform to bring an unscripted show. The concept of the show entails – new generation singers and DJs to collaborate to remix retro and current Bollywood and regional language songs in a competition.

The first two episodes of the show are now streaming. Every performance is enhanced with unique acts, choreography, and cutting edge visual design, creating a musical extravaganza.

The Remix is a stage where experimentation and innovation reign supreme. The competition features fusions of multiple genres of music from trap mixed with Bhangra, to future bass mixed with East Asian sounds, from blues to Desi beats and much more. The contestants explore different themes like ambient sounds, retro remixes, live instrumentation, sounds of India, global beats and more in each episode. And the end of each episode one team leaves the show, barring the first episode which didn’t have any elimination.

The 10 teams (consisting of a DJ and a singer each) give it their all to put out riveting performances to impress the celebrity judges. New episodes are aired every Friday. The winner of The Remix will be walking away INR 50 lakhs.
