2011 the year of Swami…

19Feb

POSTED BY

If I can pick any album I’m TRULY looking forward to, it would be Swami’s new album, I know the group were busy in the studio during 2010, but I know the wait will be worth it! S-Endz sent us an update…

But 2010 was a significant year for another reason. That reason is XXXXXX – aka the new Swami album that has been a long time in the making. It’s so close, I promise you that. Not only did I co-write every song – I also rap on all of them and sing on some. It’s the album that will define us for generations to come. I can feel it. I’ve never been more proud of any work I’ve done than I am of this album

and what about S-Endz debut album?? I’m still jamming to Outer Space, but I’m itching for some new music, as a Valentines Gift to all his friends and fans, he gave us a sneaky peak of Fashion II with Kazz Kumar

My Neosouljas, I wish I had more news to share on my debut album, “Emanate”. I know I’ve been promising it for three years now, but the reasons for the delay are simple…. I REFUSE to settle for “good enough”. After all – you only get once chance to make your debut album. I’m not like all these other artists that force their sub-standard work on the world, even going as far as shooting music videos for weak, emulative, pathetic songs in the hopes of garnering some airplay on the most niche of channels.

The positive news is that I am VERY happy with a great deal of what’s been recorded, and I hope to have more news to share soon.

Beyond “Emanate”, the follow-up is titled and conceptualized. Neofunk is about to hit a new level in the next 12 months. Get ready.

Bring it on S-Endz… Bring it on! Hopefully we are one of the channels you will consider showcasing your tracks!


Wiley Brings on a Desi MC…

Earlier last night, Wiley has been vigorously promoting his tour, he extended an invitation to his hater base to come see him live, maybe they will have a change of heart after the show. He’s invited a Desi MC to come up on stage with him, not sure if it’s for the whole tour or just one show. The Jay Sean and Wiley banter has calm down over the last week, but there are still some “ethnic banter” floating around. I wouldn’t even go as far as calling it ethnic banter, but just pure banter.

From @WileyArtist – “if you hate wiley you defo need to be there cos by the end of the night yoou would of changed your views ive got an asian mc ready to mc”

Wiley, we are looking forward to part 2 of your interview on Bobby “Bob” Friction show.

Straight out of Sheffield…

A young aspiring rapper (16) emailed us, Aamir, from Sheffield England. Unlike most teens, Aamir isn’t blinded by wanting to be a “gangster” he may have to improve on his flow and lyrics, but we all started off somewhere. Can you imagine if the mainstream radio stations, in the States, played Jay Sean’s “Who is Kamaljit?” – ouch. That would hurt. He doesn’t have any beats, but bars. Keep it up Aamir!

Ok, we lied, he’s not 21, he’s really 25 – but age is just a number right? 😉 In any case he’s celebrating a birthday, if you haven’t seen him on LOGO, New York Comedy Club or on a tour in your city – make it a point to go see him! His humor is outrageous and FABulous with a capital FAB :) We love you Vidur! Happy Birthday!

Cagebird Official Video (Mandeep Sethi)

Cagebird was one of my favorite tracks off Mandeep Sethi’s new album Poor Peoples Planet. When I saw Mandeep a few weeks ago, he told Mixman Shawn, AJ and myself this was an experimental album, I feel it speaks for the folks who can’t speak out do to a repress society and some artists living in fear of speaking their minds. Mandeep doesn’t hold back on this album, it’s a conscious flow of thoughts to wake our unconscious state of mind.

Oh S-Endz, besides free music downloads another way to my heart is anything EXCLUSIVE you put out. For all of you fans of Swami and personal S-Endz, this is super Valentines Day Treat… a sneak peak of Fashion, he adds that one of a kind Neofunk flavor with Kazz Kumar (whose responsible for making me say dirty words) enjoy this clip. I’m looking forward to featuring this track on the Junction!

I’m sure we can all agree, for those who celebrate Valentines day, there’s nothing WORSE then a cheap Valentine! But there’s nothing better then FREE music :) With the artist’s permission of course 😉 We don’t advocate free downloads here on Urban Desi Radio. Hari B knows the way to my heart  = good music (especially when it’s free to all the Urban Desi Radio listeners). I don’t think I’ve witnessed so many single releases on Valentines Day, but this is the FIRST free download. Jasbir’s voice shows the world that although the US maybe slow when it comes to producing strong Bhangra talent compared to our UK counterparts – we can still hold our own and he’s got the goods! Along with Hari-B’s musical touch.
