Nalla rangugala has the soul of a Bangla boat song, with its serene and understated orchestration. Shaan’s singing, stressing on the slow, deliberately lengthy phrases adds to the Bangla feel and sounds absolutely wonderful. Ye yadhalo too depends on a mighty sparse orchestration, and Hemachandra hands Shaan’s simple, soulful and rhythmic melody perfectly. The soundtrack’s […]

Okka chinukulo is every bit the lush Shaan melody that he often composes in Malayalam. The tune’s build-up is fantastic and the soft, harmonium-layered percussion harmonium is thoroughly enticing, as is Sachin Warrier—and in particular—Anne Amie vocals. Pranavi Acharya is equally good in Pacha pacha kalale, with Shaan’s tune working pretty well again, though it […]

Amidst rollicking thavil and a captivating ‘va va’ chorus, Vidhu Pratap and Sreya ask Shekara the elephant to shake that booty – lovely listen! In Sunnath kalyanam, Shaan shifts the traditional Muslim wedding sound to vibrant rock, in style! Neeyum njanum changes the tone dramatically, with its serene melody that Sachin Balu literally whispers, to […]

Shaan exploits Eantammede jimikki kammal‘s hook thoroughly, with Vineeth and Renjith Unni leading amidst lively background vocals. M G Sreekumar rocks the jaunty melody of Karayum kadalum, even as Shaan keeps the backgrounds spritely with a noticeable early-Rahman influence. Neeyum has that too, though it is a largely Shaan-style melody. Manpaathakale‘s rhythm is standard-issue Shaan […]

Gowry Lekshmi owns Aaro nenjil (less interesting desi mix, though), particularly the anupallavi’s flowing phrases, on Shaan’s beautiful tune with an addictive chorus high and folk percussion. Sithara Krishnakumar handles the slow, alluring Wow Song wonderfully, layered with the uncredited male ‘wow wow’, while Radhika Sethumadhavan’s humming in Captain’s Honour is aptly soulful. Kannetha and […]

Jeevitham ithu has a pleasant—albeit rather generic—sound that borders on EDM, and Najim Arshad handles it well. Kadha parayana flows even better, with a nice pop-ghazal-sufi mix-like sound, really well sung by Rijisha and Aalaap Raju. Roopa Revathy’s vocals is phenomenal in Olangal moodum, a moody, somber and sparsely orchestrated lullaby where her singing, and […]

Thennal nilavinte is good old Shaan-Vineeth magic, given how tuned-in the duo is, with each other’s musical sensibilities. The melody, with a gorgeous violin backdrop, is immersive, and superbly sung by Vineet and Aparna Balamurali. The parody’ish tone of Nakkile prakkukal is accentuated by Mano’s exaggerated style of singing and just about passes muster. Oronnoronnayi […]

There’s a whiff of yesteryears’ retro in Neelakkannulla maane that’s very inviting, sung incredibly by Vijay Yesudas and Shweta Mohan! Mele mukilodum and Sooraj’s lone contribution, Vaanam mele are odd mixes – the enthusiasm they put up in the tunes seem drowned in the unusually lackluster backgrounds. Shaan’s immersive tune rules as much as Hesham’s […]

Ee shishirakaalam is a sweet melody that comes together with those gorgeous violins, and Vineeth and Kavya Ajit’s fantastic singing. The Onam song, Thiruvaavaniraavu is propped beautifully by Unni Menon and Sithara Krishnakumar’s vocals, with an resonant, authentic folk sound. Shaan’s ode to Dubai is serene and aptly dreamy, with an endearing, persistent mandolin-like sound. […]

Shaan makes a heady mix of techno sounds and a highly engaging melody in Ende maavum poothe. He also sings it together with Vineeth Sreenivasan and Arun Alat, and a particularly fantastic rap layer by Rzee. In Maruda, there’s a damn good mix again, this time using a wedding music band’s sound over a incredibly […]
