We’re suckers for a good cover and the team of Gagan ‘GP’ Behl and Manraj Patar having been kicking around the YouTube stratosphere for a short while offering their versions of popular songs that have included Sahotas ‘Teri Meri Gal Ban Gayee‘ and the monumental Panjabi MC track with Surinder Shinda ‘Mirza‘.
This time they’ve combined the well known lyrics from Babe Bulleh Shah’s ‘Kade Aa Mil Yaar Pyaara Aa‘ (Wadali Brothers favourite) alongside Gurdas Maan’s ‘Sajna Veh Sajna‘ and utilised quite an enchanting composition provided by Patar’s vocal teacher and singer Dev Dildar. Nice use of the harmonium and acoustic makes this a winner but the verse by Patar really shows his skills which seem to be bettering with each new offering.
If you’re wondering where you’ve heard the name Patar before, Manraj is the youngest son of one of the greatest poets of our generation, one of the truest assets of the Panjabi Language; Dr Surjit Patar. Having penned great poems such as Hawa Vich Likhe Harf, Hanere Vich Sulagdi Varnmala and Kuj Keha Tan Hanera Jarega Kive, words often fail when describing talents such as the supreme Surjit. Hopefully the light from his father will be continued by Manraj for years to come.

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.
The third video to be released from the most popular album of 2010, The Raj. Created with sounds from his very own application, the iTumbi, it features the vocals of Lehmber Hussainpuri.

Panjabi MC feat Jelly Manjitpuri - Jatti
Panjabi MC feat Jelly Manjitpuri - The Raj
17 years after Panjabi MC released his first album Souled Out, we see the 10th album release from the legendary Bhangra producer. I think it’s safe to say that without all of his releases, and I mean every single one, our industry wouldn’t be where it is today. I don’t mean to imply that our industry is up there in bright lights and enjoyed by the masses throughout the world but more to state that Panjabi MC has consistently year on year provided us with a collection of music that the Bhangra industry should be proud of. Having mentioned Souled Out, albums like 100% Proof, Grass Roots, Legalised and Desi having been nothing short of being one of the best albums within its time and always contained one if not more dancefloor anthem.
It’s been two years since Indian Timing was released and the anticipation for his newest release has been enormous. Since PMC dropped exclusives from the album at the BBC Asian Network London Mela on the 8th August, fans like me have been itiching to hear bangers like Moorni, Nach Di Di and Jodi. With the album being an eighteen, YES EIGHTEEN! track release, sceptics will say that some of the tracks aren’t up to the normal standard but I think the point that needs to be made is that not everyone of the eighteen tracks will suit each and every person. I think it’s also good to point out that this album is clearly progressive with PMC’s taste. Almost four tracks have been on a dance tip and he recently stated in a BBC interview that his next release will be heavily hip-hop with his own Panjabi MC touch which will cater for the mainstream. I personally think the album has some serious great tracks on it and the ones I like have been uploaded for you to listen above. Again as always, if you like the tracks then download from iTunes.
I think I can confidently say that Panjabi MC’s greatest album was Legalised. So ahead of its time and within it held the gem that would take the world by storm in ‘Mundian To Bach Ke’. At the time, although MTBK was an anthem, tracks like Mirza Part 2 and Ghalla Ghurian were the real diamonds. Have a listen below to the tracks I thought were the greatest from a pick of Panjabi MC’s earlier discography:
Souled Out (released in 1993)
Panjabi MC feat Meshi Eshara - Nach Ke
(The same production was to be used with the famous Kuldeep Manak vocals Ghariya Milan Deh on 100% Proof but I still like Meshi’s version)
Panjabi MC - Baah Phar Ni
100% Proof (released in 1995)
Panjabi MC feat Kuldeep Manak - Sarwan Phuter
Panjabi MC feat Mohd Saddiq - Jogi
(Unbelievable how this jam became a dancefloor hit after its official single release in 2003)
Grass Roots (released in 1996)
Panjabi MC feat Surinder Sonia - Raat Da Na Bole
(One of if not THE best track ever to be made by Panjabi MC, utilising Summertime to create an awesome smooth jam)
Panjabi MC feat Labh Janjua, Ranjit Mani, Surinder Shinda + Kuldeep Manak - Jind Mahi
Legalised (released in 2001)
Panjabi MC feat Lal Chand Yamla Jatt - Neuke Phadin Jawana
Panjabi MC feat Surinder Shinda - Mirza Part 2
(The second part to a series of great Mirza productions, although the first versions were top, this one was superb)
Panjabi MC feat Hema Sharma - Ghalla Ghurian
