What’s the one thing that we all want but can’t have? You guessed it – it’s a vacation! *sigh* That wasn’t a fun riddle. What’s worse is, this feeling of longing may last a while, until it gets safe to travel again. But, of course, one can still dream.

After a wholesome month for Maed in India (see: June mixtapes Fast Forward & Rewind), we have a lot of emotions and need a way to express them.

Aseem & Rocky Gorkh…

Considering that the month of Feb, is one of love and Valentines, we thought this was the perfect opportunity to petition for new terms of endearment. “Honey”, “sweetie” and “cutie pie” are so passe.

Now it’s impossible to feature every song ever released in the Indian independent music scene on Maed in India (even all the good ones). The show would be really long.

Apart from “quarantine” and “lockdown”, a contender for 2020’s word of the year has to be “uncertainty”. Our recording sessions came to a grinding halt in March and we were stuck indoors through most of the year, unsure of when we’d be able to get back into the studio again. Yet, as we look back at 2020 (even though many of us may not want to), the…
