As bright and exciting as a summer day at the beach, the new world-pop single “Main Aaungi” was produced by Hollywood filmmaker-photographer Nick Saglimbeni of Slickforce Studio in collaboration with dynamic singer-songwriter S. J. Jananiy and her 3 Dot Recording Studios, Chennai, Tamilnadu, India. The song was released digitally around the world as part of a commercial promotion for the Slickforce Light Frame, a lighting accessory for aspiring photographers.

“Main Aaungi” is a melodic new world-pop single about heroes coming to one’s rescue. Seeking the right voice for his film project, producer Nick Saglimbeni of Slickforce Studio, partnered with music producer S. J. Jananiy to compose, produce, and perform the thematic single, which has released worldwide on all platforms. Jananiy, a renowned polygenre singer-songwriter and composer, performs the song in Hindi, and will also record it in English, Tamil & Malayalam versions for the international market. The innovative video, featuring Shaun Romy, Mira Patel and Asmita Kumari, earned over 50,000 views in 3 days.

The uplifting lyrics, sung in Hindi by S. J. Jananiy, are inspired by the idea of everyday heroes coming to the rescue of those in need. Heartfelt and universally empowering, the English language translation is along the lines of "I'll rise up" or "I will come (to help you)." The song is also slated for global release in English, Tamil & Malayalam language versions, too, and the sound lends itself perfectly as the theme for an Indian reincarnation of an American action drama television series about lifeguards who patrol the warm sunny beaches and revolves around their interpersonal relationships, with plots usually centering on dangers related to the beach lifestyle. When they come to your rescue, to save you from a bad situation, they run across the beach in slow motion, usually wearing distinctive lifeguard gear, and the music keeps you breathlessly on the edge of your seat.

Listen to the original version on Spotify:

Saglimbeni, who is renowned for his visually creative work with companies such as Disney, Apple, Skims, and many more, shares, “I first reached out to Jananiy in early 2020, looking to create a specific sound for our project that essentially didn't exist in the music space,” says Saglimbeni. “We wanted an uplifting American-style title track—inspired by the theme songs of the ‘80s and ‘90s—but with a completely Indian personality. I was searching for an artist who could pull this off when I came across Jananiy's song ‘Believe in You’ and right away I knew we’d found our artist. Jananiy has the voice of an angel—soft yet hauntingly powerful.”

Jananiy, a lover of collaborations, fully embraced the challenge and opportunity. “When Nick approached me with his concept, it was such a wonderful experiment for me! I wrote the melody backed with a lot of dynamic musical arrangements including zestful electric guitar runs and some surreal synth tones that deliver a power-packed kick, while the heart-pounding drums give a necessary flamboyance. Nick wrote the English lyrics firstly for my melody/tune which was the major underlying lyrical theme, & translated to the Hindi version by Janak Kaviratna. As far as my vocals, I layered beautiful conversations between the melody & lyrical plays, along with vocal effects that add a spark to this exciting track!”

Jananiy’s vocals on “Main Aaungi” seemingly fulfills a prophecy put forth in 2018 by Indie Pulse Music, who wrote, “She has an astonishing voice and deceptive range – a brief perusal of her professional résumé might suggest, to the uninformed, that she is a singer whose sound is strongly connected to the Indian world, but that’s not the case. Jananiy has a voice ready for the global pop stage, capable of intense emotional shifts, and flawlessly tuned into the song’s musical demands. Many listeners will marvel at the control she exerts over her vocal instrument…”
