At the time Himesh became 'composer-turned-singer', he also trendsetted and triggered the start of an era where every song had a remix version by roping in DJ Akbar Sami.

Their association was a long and successful one, and it all began with AASHIQ BANAYA AAPNE REMIX whereby Himesh featured in a music video in his trademark rwakstar look and attire. As its original version was getting played in music channels, home and car audio systems, its remix version was doing da rounds of local nightclubs with ample airtime given to it whereby it set da dance floor ablaze.

The USP of DJ Akbar Sami is that he uses an underlying RWAKIN fluctuating Calypso (bazz) beat. Here are few of his remixes where he used that beat:

> The RWAKIN fluctuating calypso beat from 1.13 & 2.00 onwards in DIL TUMHARE BINA REMIX from 36 CHINA TOWN sung by Himesh and Sunithi Chauhan.

> The RWAKIN underlying fluctuating Calypso beat in YAADAN TERIYAAN from DIL DIYA HAI.

> The RWAKIN fluctuating Calypso beat from 0.24 to 0.41 builds up da song in NAAM HAI TERA REMIX from AAP KA SUROOR.

> The underlying fluctuating Calypso beat in TERE LIYE from SHAADI SE PEHLE.

Himesh also decided to check out DJ Akbar Sami's instrumental kitty and come up with da:

> Underlying RWAKIN fluctuating live wire calypso beat in MERI AAWARGEE from GOOD BOY BAD BOY.

> Underlying RWAKIN fluctuating calypso beat from 0.15 onwards in LAGI CHUTTE NA from ROCKY - THE REBEL.
