Jeswal and Amey connected over a common thought – everyone is nostalgic about music from the yesteryears but no one is producing it. They decided to put their heads together and recreate the magic of some gifted musicians the country has produced. They just finished the production of their first song Ae Deewane Dil which will port listeners to the golden days of R D Burman. The lyrics of the song have been written by Deepak Jeswal and sung by Amey Date.

He considers Anand Bakshi as his ultimate ‘lyricist guru’ for he feels Bakshi could write lyrics for any situation with the perfect use of words and rhymes.
