Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! Jr Dread’s latest release Jogi features the vociferous, yet vastly underrated vocal prowess of Amrita Virk and is a track coursing with uncompromising attitude! From the music producer that gave us the electric-guitar infused Galliyan, the Drum and Bass flavoured Jaan Toh Pyaari and the quirky Tere Heer Nu that all featured on The Debut in 2010, Jogi once more reflects Jr Dread’s bold decision to veer away from the usual ingredients and instead inject musical diversity into Bhangra. On this occasion, he has opted to throw raw desi folk, ragga, hip hop and DnB into the smouldering pot and come up trumps with a BEAST of a track! Describing the thought process behind his new work, Birmingham-based Jr Dread explains:
This new song represents an overall new sound I’m trying to attain. Something much darker and experimental, melding genres into one song to create a wholly new sound I’ve never tried
Bearing that in mind, prepare your ears for an overwhelming onslaught as Virk’s imposing vocals go head-on with Tubsy’s juggernaut percussion! They are laced with a devastating bassline, livewire algozey and tumbi, flawlessly complemented by harmonium pieces topped with a chorus-drop that will plunge you deep into the heart of a pure, unadulterated 94BPM heaviness-fest! For me, the final drop perfectly punctuates the track’s potency with a stirring, underground-inspired climax! Check out the video to Jogi for yourself and please support the artist by purchasing the single which is now available via iTunes on Hi-Tech Music.
