We were honoured to be given the opportunity to get an exclusive first listen of Tarli Digital’s soon to be released, this Thursday 19th July to be precise, fourth-studio album #DigiTaal. We were eager to witness first-hand what Tarli had up his sleeve and how he had constructed this 12-track album that somewhat surprisingly is rumoured to be his last. So let us get straight into the action!
Track 1 – The DigiTaal Intro (feat. Hollywood Harv)
As a fan of his work providing much humour over the years on numerous releases and with him lending his comedic brilliance on Tarli’s previous album Project Rehab on Kholo Kholo Dat, it was only apt the one and only Hollywood Harv return on the latest release. With algozey, dhad, dhol and sarangi as well as an ample slice of bass you can’t really go wrong and Tarli goes all out folk on this intro as Harv traces the “musical genius/mad-man’s” footsteps and colourfully outlines #DigiTaal’s premise.
Track 2 – Mittran Da Naa Karde (feat. Dalvinder Singh & The Dhol Foundation), Lyrics: Happy Bains (UK)
Released two weeks before the album, Mittran De Naa Karde or MDNK for short has been doing the rounds on our TV screens and on the airwaves and in the main has received widespread credit for its lively characteristics stemming from the incredible catchy lyrics written by Happy Bains, the string pieces and the TDF percussive backbone. As we’ve noted before, having worked with each other for a decade, Dalvinder and Tarli have realised what works and MDNK hits the sweet-spot for both.
Track 3 – Kudi Sapni Vargi (feat. Nishawn Bhullar), Lyrics: Balraj Bhullar (India)
After the buzz created prior to this track it would be a shame to let that momentum fizzle out but Tarli presses on with yet another raucous track alongside the “Folkstar” Nishawn Bhullar and a track we’ve eagerly anticipated since Tarli lifted the lid on the line-up! With 2 solo albums under his belt already, Bhullar is no spring-chicken and shows on Kudi Sapni Vargi why he is highly regarded. The brilliant composition carved by Tarli is eaten up by the quick-on-the-draw singer as the staccato chords coupled with the cheeky flute and deadly bassline inflict substantial damage. Though we’ve all heard tracks of this lyrical nature before, Kudi Sapni Vargi ticks all the right boxes and we consider this track to be a contender to receive the video treatment.
