Over the past few days I’ve been listening to nothing but Meet Malkeet (his new album Pasand is immense). Avoiding the producers who have gotten and wrecked a perfectly good vocal, I am pleased to see that Meet is still under-rated. His tone is coarse yet it is perfectly refined which makes him stand out from the rest. This post I have brought you a track from his personal album (below) and a duet collaboration with none other than Sudesh Kumari, another vocalist who has consistently produced hit after hit but remained under the radar. The collaboration is released by DJ Rags on the Calibar label and can be puchased via the iTunes link below.Meet Malkeet - Banke Koi Sher (Taken from his own album - Pasand)
Flux and his new video sidekick Doctor P team up for the ‘cheeky’ new video for the smash hit, Bass Cannon. Let the bass cannon kick it!
This is official stuff right here. They’re not many artists more creative, original and talented than Mr R Les. This album is one to look out for.
You ask me why I’m rappin’
Well I’ll give you the reason
The same reason you hatin’ when you should be believin’
It’s in your heart to hate
It’s in my heart to win
So yeah, I’m rappin’ now
Let the hatin’ begin
I write my own records -write my own checks
Wonderin’ which hotel in which city I’m callin’ home next
One thing I know for sure
One thing that’s mandatory
I owe it all to God
I give him all the glory
Dalvinder Singh - Neela Ghora
Sewa Singh Matharu - Tum Sharnai Aaya
To celebrate the 312th birthday of the Khalsa, Dalvinder Singh and his father Sewa Singh Matharu (from Ashoka Group) have released a devotional Sikhi album which features beautiful production from Dalvinder, his brother Harry Matharu and Tarli Digital. Click the link below to go straight to iTunes.
To be taken from the forthcoming annual release by Immortal Productions Once We Were Kings, Moneyspinner, Time Productions + Bakshi Billa release the first single from said album and currently the single is riding at No1 in the iTunes World singles download chart.
Contributions made by artists on all Immortal Production albums are done solely on a Seva (selfless service) basis. These projects are purely non-profit in which no money is made by any of the project contributors. All proceeds go back into Seva and to maintain the future longevity of the series. We urge you to offer your support by purchasing only legitimate and legal copies of the album.
Not trying to jump onto the ‘Oh-why-does-Miss-Pooja-appear-on-every-track’ bandwagon, the feature song off this album Baija Baija Ho Gayi (official video above) is actually a very decent track. The album itself is jam packed with some really great artists that include the likes of Sabar Koti, Amrita Virk, Durga Rangeela and Master Rakesh. The standout obviously has to be the return of Durga Rangeela, an unsung pioneer of the Panjabi ‘slow song’ and with Dil Tere Hatho, he hasn’t failed once again in producing another diamond gem. As always I’ve picked a couple of tracks (particularly a few slow jams) that I have enjoyed from the disc, I sincerely hope you do too.Sabar Koti - Gharaan De Banere
Durga Rangila - Dil Tere Hatho
Last time we had heard the sounds of the highly talented vocalist Sidhu Tajpuri was on the Chevvan Dariya OST. Joined at the hip with the Tigerstyle boys from Scotland, Sidhu brings us an upbeat desi number that highlights the celebrations of the youth during Vaisakhi meleh. Aptly timed as its Vaisakhi week, I’m sure the track shall do very well and I hope you purchase the track legally through your preferred digital outlet/music store.
Swami Baracus Feat Kazz Kumar, Sam Khan, Menis, RKZ, AC, AG Dolla, Rowdy Brown – Break This Game (Remix) (Official Video)
Following from the success of the original Break This Game, Swami Baracus teams up with some of the finest, hard hitting MC’s that the UK have to offer for an absolutely stonking remix. The track is available for free download via Swami Baracus’ Bandcamp page.
Couldn’t give a damn whether this falls under the Dubstep or Drum and Bass genre banner, it’s a bloody BANGER!!!
Gippy Grewal - Sarkaaran
Diljit - Warrant
This is for my Dharti, this is for my Panjab
Following on from the success of Mel Karaade Rabba, the partnership of Jimmy Shergill with fellow director Navaniat Singh stems stronger as they bring you their latest offering, Dharti.
The film itself is a political drama which will obviously be set around the beautiful land of the fiver rivers, Panjab. The OST was produced by Jaidev Kumar and features the return of Rabbi Shergill who as ever brings his rock influences as well as his contemporary Sufi singing style. Gippy Grewal features on this OST as he did on the Mel Karaade Rabba OST along with a track by one of the most popular singers in Panjab right now, Diljit. Check out my picks from the disc and be sure to check out the film which is set to air on the 22nd of this month.
