Wow, wow, and simply wow. Been a long time since I heard either of these two artists with new music but it has officially blown me away with them both appearing on the same track (extra special as its my birthday today!). Hope you enjoy!
Originally from the 1969 Bollywood classic Aradhana, Roop Tera Mastana which featured the great Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore has been taken once again from the soundtrack for Everywhere + Nowhere and flipped 180 degrees with hints of dub but a heavy dosage of drum and bass. An absolute killer remix.
If you didnt catch the awesome Chalte Chalte remix from the same Everywhere + Nowhere soundtrack by the Engine-EarZ Experiment then CLICK HERE
Don’t know why but I instantly thought of Jay-Z’s Venus vs Mars track but my thoughts aside, this has a crazy beat and a serious hook. Kano and Amplify Dot seriously killed this one.
Successfully keeping the helm as radio’s number one Home of Bhangra show, Dipps Bhamrah attempts to don the producer’s hat once again by remaking Mr Makhna which featured on his previous album Take One. The first video to feature off his new album brings us a funny and enjoyable take on the good times he has with his father, the living legend KS Bhamrah. Also keep an eye out in the video for some cameo appearances including Jags Klimax, Panjabi By Nature, The Dhol Foundation, En Karma, Dalvinder Singh and Tarli Digital aswell as a host of others. Also another great video shot by Guvy Heer, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one.
Also don’t forget to check out Dipps’ video diary showing the ins and outs of making an album.
In honour of Bob Marley’s death anniversary, Jimmy Fallon hosted and ended a weeklong tribute to the entertainer with a performance from none other than Lauryn Hill. Performing Could You Be Loved and Chances Are, Lauryn returned to our television screens for the first time since her hiatus from publicity began after the release of MTV Unplugged No 2.0 in 2002. Honestly I found this a perfect tribute to Bob Marley and set alight the need for Lauryn to return to making new music to reproduce some of the greatness we all experienced from her album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
Something fairly new to me was the sounds of dimmsummer. Hailing from NYC, him and his High Chai Recordings team announced the release of their newest release dimmsummer presents: SUBcontinentalBASS which features a compilation of well blended artists that delightfully brings together the sounds of asian-influenced dubstep, hints of drumstep and some reggae dub chucked in for good measure. Up above is a mashup video (including a very eclectic visual) of three tracks which feature on the album and down below is a listen and free download to an awesome track by Naz entitled Saawariya. Also click here to purchase the album via BeatPort.
Wouldn’t say I would have chosen this song for her next video but Rihanna rolling all around on a bed, cannot say I disapprove.
Trying to win but the finish lines far, race against the odds, race don’t matter when you dead or start praying to the Gods.
Probably one of my picks from Tyga’s Black Thoughts Vol 2 mixtape, Storm featuring the vocals of Stefano Moses got it’s very own powerful visuals earlier. Check ‘em out!
