UDR Artist of the Week: Dark MC

31Jul

POSTED BY

The artist of the week is Dark MC, I had the pleasure of interviewing him about five months ago. His album Incisive feat. Angel, stayed on top of the SimplyBhangra charts for many weeks. “Chori Chori Takna” and “Dasi Ni Dasi” were my favorites. Dark MC is currently touring around the UK, he’s working on his new album, that will be dropping soon on MovieBox Records. I have to say he has a unique lyrical style when it comes to his songs, I think that’s what grabs the attention of his fans.

“’I’m a storyteller I lay down my experiences and my observations of life love and the like. My rhymes are dark and distinct I suppose you could say that I view life through ebony-coloured spectacles.” says Dark MC.

Vishal’s debut single – Majajne

30Jul

POSTED BY

vishal

New debut single from Vishal, “Majajne” was released on itunes yesterday. He’s hoping that this will be a summer hit, I think it has a good potential in the UK Bhangra scene. He’s trying to stray away from traditional bhangra beats and coming up with his own flavor. You can download the song here.

Sari Raath – Pree Mayall feat. DJ Flawless

Sari Raath, debuted on Dr. Sonie’s show earlier in June and played on the Junction, I had mixed reviews about this track, I liked it – but for me there was something missing. I still can’t figure it out, I’m not dissing the track. Pree is talented and we certainly need to support our local artist here in the bay. The music video is great – except I would cut the beginning (Pree and Flawless talking), the song has a great story so let the music speak for itself. It’s like in any scene setting you don’t need to say “I’m going to come in and there better be so girls!” don’t tell it… just show it! You don’t need to add any fluff to it, Pree has certainly come a long way since his first album, no doubt about it. When’s the next album coming out Pree?

UDR Artist of the week… Panjabi Architect

An Achitect??? His name defines it all…. studying beats… taking them a part… making new beats… into new tunes …. building and creating a musically driven masterpiece. We “met” when I was on AsianFX in the UK, a mutual friend Amrik Dholi introduced us. Later I found out he used to listen to me on the Morning Show with Sam Sam and my own show “The Junction” through this began our friendship. Am I making him artist of the week because he’s my friend? Well… no… it’s simply because I have showcased his pieces a number of times…. I want you to get to know Panjabi Architect. Every week I will be featuring a different artist… if time allows it, hopefully I can fire off some questions for your reading pleasure…

Panjabi Achitect is currently working on his album “Truth and Lies”

Genres: Funk, Dub, DnB, Reggae, World Music, Experimental & Panjabi Architect
