I am overwhelmed by the response and the most common response #goosebumps 🙂 . This has been an amazing journey. The best part of this rendition is not me, but these musicians who shined like pearls in this rendition and taking this industry forward. This performance is dedicated to all of you. From Aadat till bhanwray, it’s been 15 years, the journey continues , only because a friend who produced Jal’s first album aadat , told me that you can do it all over again, and again. 🙂 – Xulfi you are an asset for our music industry, as I feel no one can do justice to this rendition except you. The ideas, melodies, words that i have cldnt ever shaped up without your input. It reminds me of the time we were recording our first album Aadat we were naive, kids enthusiastic and still after so many years the spark is there as we try staying true , honest to what we do and we are still learning. #nescafebasement5 has gone to the next level and yes certainly raised bar of others. This performance is also dedicated to Atif Aslam, a friend who praised me all the time in his interviews. Remember! You are a brother and i am a proud fan of yours 🙂

Back in 2003, it was a trending song among youngsters. Nescafe Basement’s version was something which took us to another world and stimulated so many memories connected with the song. I think Xulfi made an audacious decision to produce an instrumental version of Aadat. Overall, 12 different instruments have been used to create this piece of music. The song starts with the acoustic guitar which gives a feeling of being awake from a bottomless nap. It directly touches the soul and you feel being lost with the song. Six minutes into the song, Goher Mumtaz enters with the song Bhanwaray. It is undeniably a reflective moment for Jal fans.

Listen to the song!

The recreation of Aadat is evidence that discovering a new sphere and experimenting can turn into something great. Xulfi has not just twisted the instrumental version of Aadat but improved the song for the fans. Let’s wait for the next episode of Nescafe Basement. Stay tuned with us for more details!
