If you were born in the 80s like me you would have noticed the impact of Kismet Record releases had on your life in the 1990s-2000s. A singer who shone bright for me was the instantly noticeable strong vocalist Jinder Jinda who really never stepped into the spotlight at all but always sang numbers that I actually liked more than other tracks that were being compiled on the same albums he would sing on. Tracks like Jee Karda from The Yardies album and England Joga from 2 Lethal Desi actually were tracks that still live on my iPod and it would be great if Jinder would reappear on some newer material. Last time (if my memory serves me correct) we saw Jinder was on Mukhtar Sahota’s album ’4 The Muzik’ which was released way back in 2004 so if I am correct, we deserve some new Jinder Jinda.
Felt like one of those Sunday’s where searching for new music was going to hit a brick wall. Recently on Twitter I have been reminiscing of music that the Bhangra industry offered throughout the 00s and being an 80s baby, I thought why not share and reminisce with you some of the anthems that seem to have fizzled and almost been forgotten.
First up is a track taken from an album titled Dance With Me. This album which was released way back in 2002 contained one of the dancefloor anthems of the past decade in Aaja Ni Aaja sung by the now redundant vocalist, Amar Arshi. As good as the song was, the track that actually did it for me was sung by Kamal Katania. Hit play and let me know within the comments section whether you remember this one!

Released by Kismet Records in 1998, 2 Lethal Desi was a pioneer album which released one of the first tracks that Labh Janjua ever featured on, Gabroo. It also featured one of my favourite vocalists, Jinder Jinda who for some reason slipped off the radar. Check out the song which had me going crazy because of its underlying bass line, an essential requirement for any Bhangra fan going through puberty.
Bally Rai Feat Avtar Chamak + Amanjyot - Jija
Hard choice picking a track from the Ambersariya album which featured the hit title track and another diamond gem, Sharaabi (sung by the Late Mohan Singh Nimanna, may he RIP). I went for the track which almost everyone forgot about but tended to do so well on the dancefloor, let me know if you remember this one.

You probably think and its probably true, the anthem that everyone remembers from The Lick is Tappe by HS Talwar but for me tracks like this one and Pyar Kiya to Nibhana by Shazia Manzoor were the real highlights from the album.
Surinder Rattan Feat Avtar Maniac - Jag Hasia
Finally, a debut album by PJD titled Another Way of Life provided a track which seemed to gel so perfectly. Featuring the vocals of the living legend Sabar Koti and a garage instrumental of K-Ci+Jojo, the track was an instant hit (well for me anyway)

Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did, leave a comment if you’d like me to go through the archives at a later stage. Enjoy.
