Lost Stories’ glitch-pop track, “Faking It” just got a serious upgrade, courtesy; four incredible Indian producers. The duo consisting of Rishab and Prayag announced a remix contest for their Artist Originals’ track and handpicked the best of the best to release a four-track pack.
“The response to “Faking It” was phenomenal. Needless to say, the response to the video was also overwhelming. The whole experience has been extraordinary, when it comes to all things, “Faking It.” We are thrilled to see the high level of creativity and passion emoted via the remixes by our talented Lost Stories Academy students,” says Prayag Mehta.
If you didn’t know already, when Lost Stories aren’t topping charts and pumping dance floors around the world, the two run an academy for students who are interested in music production.
Faking It / The Remixes features four very different versions of the track and each of them is unique in its own way. For instance, DID takes the whole project into a divergent universe with his futuristic vision.
Mumbai based Kimera who adds an energetic touch, making it a festival banger says, “Remixing “Faking It” was an amazing opportunity for me to showcase what I’ve learned from Rishab and Prayag sir. It is inspired by Lost Stories’ music and I’m thankful to both, my mentors as well as Artist Originals for this release.”

ASJ’s groovier version accentuates the emotions of the lyrics by bringing out the darker side of Matthew Steeper’s vocals. “This official remix wouldn’t have happened without the guidance of Lost Stories. I never expected that I will get an opportunity to do a G-House remix of this amazing song,” tells ASJ.
While “Faking It” is itself a melody driven track, Trosk decided to put it on euphonious tropical house steroids to make it sound mellower. “When I was making this track I didn’t know that if it’s going to be released or not. I just made it for fun but thanks to Lost Stories for approving it and making it official. It means a lot to me,” comments Trosk.
The “Faking It” remixes confirm the fact that the Indian dance music industry is expanding at an unprecedented rate but most importantly, it’s moving in the right direction.
