Lost Stories (DJs)
Lost Stories is an Indian DJ/producer duo composed of Prayag Mehta and Rishab Joshi. They are best known for their ability to uniquely blend Indian folk sounds with electronic music. Some of their most popular tracks are “Bombay Dreams” with KSHMR, “Mahi” with Kavita Seth, their official remix of Alan Walker‘s “Faded” , their edit of “Vaseegara” with Jonita Gandhi‘s vocals, “Mai Ni Meriye” with Jonita Gandhi and Ashwin Adwani, and their official remix of Marshmello and Demi Lovato’s “OK Not To Be OK“.
They have performed at the Tomorrowland Music Festival (Belgium) four times. In 2018 they played at Tiesto’s Musical Freedom stage alongside Zaeden and in the following year, they played at Smash The House stage curated by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
Lost Stories were the face of Budweiser’s Freedom campaign to Tomorrowland. They played at and promoted the premiere of Will Smith’sBright for Netflix. They have been brand ambassadors for Jack & Jones, Absolut and did a multi-city tour with Chivas. They were also a part of Belvedere’s Global Studio B campaign and licensed Reveal Yourself as the Studio B anthem.
They then evolved their sound with their debut album – Music for the # Generation in 2012 which was the no. 3 album on Top 100 Dance Album iTunes Charts. Ever since they’ve had three #1 singles on iTunes and remixed the likes of One Republic, Afrojack, Alan Walker and U2.
They were ranked no. 52 on DJ Mag Top 100 polls in 2016, making them the second ever Indian act to feature on the list.
Lost Stories’ “Vaseegara/Zara Zara” edit of Jonita Gandhi’s vocals and Sub Urban’s “Cradles” went viral after they premiered it during the Alan Walker Aviation tour in India. An online petition was started on Change.org by one of their fans for them to release it and eventually, they put it out as a part of an EP called lo/st tapes v1 on their YouTube channel. Rishab Joshi from Lost Stories said, “I made these edits exclusively for my DJ sets and I had no plans of releasing them. From a petition to release this flip, to getting covered on national news and finally being called out by Madhavan to put this out, we had to give this to you.” The EP also contained their edits of “Aaja” and “For Aisha.”
In October 2020, they remixed Marshmello and Demi Lovato’s “OK Not To Be OK“, which is also one of their most popular releases, and their most successful collaboration with any international artist/s till date.
Their debut studio album, Music For The # Generation released on 23 August 2013.
On 22 April 2017, they released a remix of another Alan Walker track, “Alone“.

On 18 March 2019, they released their first single of the year, “Mahi”, featuring vocals from Indian classical/folk musician Kavita Seth, via KSHMR‘s label Dharma Worldwide, making it their first release on the label. First premiered in 2015, this became one of their most sought out and anticipated works. They teamed up with KSHMR and with Kavita Seth again for “Bombay Dreams”, that released on 13 September 2019.
