One of our You Got Mail tracks this week on the Junction is Mera Laung Gawacha – Amrik on the Dhol, who took Harleen Singh’s vocals from a youtube video. I got to know Amrik Dholi during my time on Asian FX radio, I remember playing “Fierce Giddah” on my weekend show. He’s very talented and I like the fact he tries different things when it comes to music. It’s great to still have a platform where I can feature him and any other artists who wants to be featured on the Junction. Check out the track and support Amrik! PS. He promises more tracks will be coming my way this year!

Vaishali Rana put together this event in two weeks for CureSonia.org, she brought in Urban Desi artists like Mandeep Sethi, Pree Mayall, Rav E and Mixman Shawn. In the back, AADP Workers (Debbie and the new South Asian coordinator, Vicky) were busy with donor registrations. They easily rounded up 70 new donors! We even got a couple of shots of Mixman, Pree and Diamond Lane Records manager AJ supporting the cause and becoming donors. This was a successful event for CureSonia.org and we can’t wait for the next one! Music is the way to bring people together!

2011 Abstracts


In Memory of Ajeet Singh Matharu

Ajeet-Singh-238x300

Earlier this year at our first Sikholars 2010: Sikh Graduate Student Conference, young researchers from across North America came to present their work on the Stanford University campus.  Each with their own work; each with their own perspective.  One of the most memorable was Ajeet Singh Matharu.  Ajeet Singh presented his paper “Punjab and Sikh Studies in Historiographical Moments”.  This past summer, he was taken to us far too soon.  At the upcoming Sikholars 2011 we seek to create a proper legacy tribute for Ajeet Singh.  Please feel free to send us suggestions.

Below you will find an ‘In Remembrance’ article about Ajeet Singh by a friend, colleague, and brother.

Sullee J seeks Vindication (New Album)

Sullee J, turns a negative into a positive, you can certainly feel his positive energy on our In Memory of Jagmeet Page, where he shared a special poem about suicide. It’s not an easy topic to discuss, but his words on the topic, I believe can save a life. A couple of weeks ago, we played “Weakness of Man” on the Junction. This is the first single to his new album, Vindication, which will spread a positive message among the youth and those striving to make a change. The powerful video (Weakness of Man), which premiered on January 15, 2011 on illVibes-DMV shows the role positivity plays in fighting off corruption, hatred and crime of the world. In the video, Sullee J takes on the role of positivity when he continues to fight for what is right, despite being beaten down, emptied out and tortured.

Let’s go behind the scenes with Dark MC

What makes a good management team? Its when they give the fans a behind the scene look of their artist. It’s always fun to see the making of a music video, if you have had the chance to be in one, you know there’s a lot of waiting around and retakes. It’s a work of art, but these behind the scene videos make it look so easy (for some of us who will never be on a set with Dark MC) get an up close and personal look behind his new single – Jaadu.

I had this look on my face when I was watching this music video, by Skilf, we are currently playing his London track from his mixtape Alter Ego on THE JUNCTION. As a film grad, I have a soft spot for old cinema, I really enjoyed these clips from the Detonate (another track from the Alter Ego mixtape) music video. Skilf gets an A+ for originality!
