A new digital music series titled ‘VELO Sound Station 2020’ created for YouTube is a step further in using the cyber space as a future global world.
Directed and curated by veteran musician Bilal Maqsood, the series is spread over five episodes with two to three songs per session (14 songs in total) scheduled to be released every Friday.
The first episode of the series was debuted on November, 20, 2020 featured three included Atif Aslam, Umair Jaswal and Natasha Noorani.
Dressed in a glittery cobalt blue suit Atif Aslam rendered the lilting pop-anthem “Kadi To Hans Bol’. Atif’s powerhouse vocals paired with Naseebo Lal’s captivating lyrics give this number a new life.
Umair Jaswal’s version of the Alamgir Sahib’s classic ‘Gagar’ gets a modern twist with a dancing beat. The rendition is intended to fall in love with the original dandia number all over again!
Umair Jaswal dons in a vibrant truck art jacket and playing to the cosmopolitan audience with his strong vocals and infectious energy renders ‘Gagar’ into a fun and lively number with a beat. The song can be new party song of the year after almost more than three decades!
Natasha Noorani’s nostalgic nod to the 80s in her sweet and soft vocals transported to the days of Disco with her original number, ‘Baby Baby.’ The song’s groovy vibe and Natasha’s funky look in a blush pink pant suit takes you back to the classic times of Pop.
The future episodes would be a combination of covers and originals, buoyed by a distinctive musical identity – from groovy tunes to rap. The show aims to dovetail with contemporary fashion that together creates today’s Pop.
Artists and producers featured on the show will range from emerging acts, popular artists with several songs composed by Bilal Maqsood while others brought to the show by the featured artists.
The management of Velo’s Sound Station says it believes in the slogan of “Pop Don’t Stop” as a manifestation that chants for the masses because it connects the audience to their daily lives and values.
“Music, fashion and a complete Pop-culture lifestyle with the added perk of being able to witness one’s preferences as part of the audience is our motto.”
Bilal Maqsood has said that the upcoming series is “very audio-visual in terms of dynamics with Pop fashion as an underlying theme; and songs with a very performance-based element to them with movement on stage and a surrounding, energetic crowd.”
Upcoming songs to be released on Friday November 27th on VELO SOUND STATION 2020

Canadian Pakistani CEO and motivational speaker Muneeb Mushtaq has given us many insightful and empowering thoughts over the years on the basis of his experiences as a young and dynamic businessman. The tech tycoon has been the founder of three tech business ventures and has managed to achieve so much at such a young age. And, he has given back his learning and knowledge by motivating, educating, and mentoring people to be successful in life.
Here are some motivational thoughts by the Forbes awarded entrepreneur Muneeb Mushtaq to get you motivated and beat the Monday blues:
- Get rid of the useless and negative clutter in your life
Muneeb Mushtaq suggests that it is important to subtract some of the unnecessary things from life to realise how insignificant they are. He advises us to get away from the insignificant and negative clutter in order to see an immediate positive impact. Worrying about what others think of us, trying to please everyone are some of the unimportant things we need to remove as soon as possible. According to him “When you remove what’s negative, it’ll add more space for what’s POSITIVE”!
- Don’t wait, just take the first step
The successful entrepreneur recommends us not to wait for other people or for the perfect moment to do what you have always wanted to do. There will never be a perfect time, situation or circumstances that would make you start working on your dreams. He advises us to just take the first step and get started.
- Failure is the opportunity to start over again, more wisely
The dynamic businessman is also of the view that failure provides an invaluable experience that makes it more likely to get success the next time around. He explains: “Till the time you don’t give up, the failures are just learning experiences, helping you to eventually succeed.”
- Respect the competition
Muneeb Mushtaq also shares this motivational thought that competition should be embraced and should be used as a driving force to push you further rather than fearing it. Competition is also a validation that there is a massive market and opportunity in the space to grow further.
- Change is important
Another motivating thought from Muneeb Mushtaq is that if you want change in life, then you should also be willing to change. He says, “If you are not willing to change, don’t expect your life to either”.
