I had mentioned the young talent Govind Bhachu when Garry Sandhu’s Sahan Toh Pyariya released early this year. Having performed percussion on said track, Govind has gone a step further by producing the official remix to G Sandhu’s most recent release Fresh. The remix is a clicky little number. Hard hitting, deep bass, anthemic – check, check and check.
Based on the superb classic sung by the living legend Kuldeep Manak, Yaar Mera Chad Giya gets brought forward once again into 2011 (last time it was featured on the DJ H + Rags album Reloded, sung by Bakshi Billa) by hitmen of the moment GV and Garry Sandhu. Not being the first time they’ve worked together, the well known melody and catchy Freshy Mera Pajj Giya lyrics will surely bring the two even more to the forefront. A surefire hit for the both of them.Garry Sandhu + GV - Fresh

Updated with Official Video
Taken from, in my opinion, one of the best albums of the year, check out the ‘quirky’ video to Matha Tekhiya featuring one my favourite vocalists of all time, Mr Lehmber Hussainpuri.
Taken from The Raj which was released at the back end of last year, we finally get to see the video for one of the best songs off the album, Jatti featuring vocals by Jelly Manjitpuri.
Music by Jaidev Kumar and lyrics by Juggi Singh, set to feature on the soundtrack for the upcoming film Khushiyaan, Sardool Sikandar lines one up on an upbeat number which will be the item song for the OST.
Produced by Kaos Productions, check out the new single by my favourite vocalist of the moment, Saini Surinder. Click the link below to purchase the track from iTunes.
The latest album offering from Dr Zeus was way back in 2007 with Back Unda Da Influence which featured the vocal talents of India born Sharmilla (not including The Spirit, Manpreet Sandhu) . Four and a half years later, the trusted collaboration team up again for a ten track album (inc three remixes) showcasing the catchy and likeable Zeus’ signature production style accompanied with the distinctive chorus/backing singer collaboration of Jelly Manjitpuri and Laddi Dhaliwal. Moving from his garage influenced production (Highlife and Pure Garage) way back in the early 2000′s, Zeus has tailored his production into a sound which he feels comfortable is current for today’s music scene and in my opinion, I think he’s succeeded well. Whilst being surrounded in controversy of ghost production, the most important factor is that Zeus has an printed his input on the music he’s releasing. Without this influence, do you think tracks like Ah Ni Kuriyah, Gwandian Da Dhol or Kangna would be as big as they have been? I think not.
The album itself is no Unda Da Influence but it’s a strong release which I hope is reflected in the chart position, I look forward to hearing Zeus’ very own album (without Sharmilla) in the future (preferably without the four year wait). Click the link below to purchase the album from iTunes and as always, I’ve picked a couple of tracks which have caught my ear. Enjoy.
Updated with official video for Wal WanguDr. Zeus, Sharmilla + Bubble - Headline (Bloodline Summer Remix)
Dr. Zeus + Sharmilla - Wal Wangu
Speechless. That’s the only word I can use to describe this song by the great Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Taken from the Aazaan OST, it appears that anything Rahat touches seems to turn to musical gold. Also, not sure if it’s me but I love the western singing touch that he puts to the chorus, not something that I’ve heard from Rahat before.
Kaler Kanth - Ehna Hanjuyan Da
Lehmber Husainpuri - Tera Ishq Sohniye
With music by Gurmit Singh, Kala Nizampuri and Kumaar team up to write the lyrics for the forthcoming film release, Yaar Anmulle. Riding on the success of Yaar Anmulle by Sharry Mann, I personally don’t think the film should have been titled the same but differences aside, I’m only here to blog good music. The Master Saleem track is the pick of the bunch for me as I love it’s smooth melody along with its effective percussion and woodwind pieces, a simply superb track.
