5. Junai Kaden

He’s a protégé of Mumzy Stranger but has a completely different swagger. Junai burst out onto the Desi music scene in 2011 with his smash hit single Aaja Mere Naal. This song took the South Asian music scene scene by storm and proved to the ladies he’s definitely a sexy singer with lyrics to only tease!

 

4. Lomaticc

Oh, Lomaticc! Not only is he a favorite with the ladies but, his passionate singing voice can put someone in a major love lockdown. He fits perfectly as Culture Shock’s lead singer with dashing boyish charm and a wonderful voice. Oh, and that jaw line – it’s a killer! Watch him in action in Culture Shock’s smash hit single Ex’ed Up.

 

3. H-Dhami

Smashing good looks. Check. An amazing singing voice. Check. A heart of gold. Double Check! Ask anyone who has met him, he truly resonates humility and elegant charm. He’s been a ladies’ man since day one and we don’t see that changing anytime soon. Get a sneak peek of his charm in our favorite H-Dhami song Haar Gabroo.

 

2. Imran Khan

Females often tell us how sexy he is. “He’s someone I would totally do naughty things with!” said one female fan. Well, you know what? We don’t blame her because there’s just something about Imran’s bad-boy persona and talent that attracts all types of females. Want a lil’ taste of his bad-boy flavor? Check him out in one of his sexiest music videos Bewafa.

 

1. Jay Sean

jaysean1-1 

Jay Sean is a Grade A, certified ladies man! This guy has specialized in making the girls go complete gaga. Not only because of his striking good looks but, his amazing ability to sing  dreamy ballads that really send the ladies into orbit. Jay Sean has proven time and time again that he will always be in the hearts of most South Asian ladies! We can’t get enough of him in our favorite song Ride It.

 

Think someone should be on this list?

Mogul Entertainment Group is bringing out Imran Khan on his FIRST US tour, this tour is long overdue. He was suppose to come in 2009, but took a bad fall at the Dubai airport and all US bookings were canceled. There were some speculations that Imran was under poor management at the time and they mishandled the US bookings. Another speculation was he got into a fight after his concert and the “fall story” was planted by his PR. We dig his accent in this promo video!

If you would like to book Imran please call 510-584-7949 or email info@mogulentertainmentgroup.com

Top 15 Desi Artists of the Decade

31Dec

POSTED BY

This list is like no other, something that can only come out once in a decade. These artists shaped the 2000’s with their talent and dedication to the scene. Urban Desi Radio proudly presents the Top 15 Desi Artists of the decade!

15. Atif Aslam
Years Active: 2002- Present
Genres: Hindi, Urdu, Romantic and Rock

-1

Aslam, a Pakistan native, had been widely recognized in the Bollywood scene and has given several hits such as Woh Lamhe, Tere Bin, Kuch Is Tarah, Tera Hoone Laaga Hoon and more. He’s known for his powerful vocal belting technique and ladies… the way he romances in his songs, doesn’t it just make you melt?Bollywood music would be tasteless without him.

14. DJ Sanj
Years Active: 2002- Present
Genres: Bhangra, Punjabi and Hip-Hop

-2

Before DJ Sanj there had  been no artist coming out of the US or Canada with legit Desi tunes and remixes. Sanj  was one of the first Desi artists to represent North America.  He took mainstream loops with Punjabi vocals and made some musical magic.  C’mon admit it, I know you’re still bumping his mixes!

13. Amrinder Gill
Years Active: 2000- Present
Genres: Punjabi, Bhangra, Romance, Hindi Pop

-3

He has one of the most passionate voices in Punjabi music. Guys, if you really want your girl to melt- play one of Arminder Gill’s romantic ballads. Arminder has impressed us with the diversity of music genres incorporated in his songs including: folk-rooted tracks to up-tempo dance tunes for the bhangra lovers, hey… he’s even had a couple rock songs!  A Punjabi artist who experienments with every type of music genre has earned the 13th place on our list!

12. Satinder Sartaj
Years Active: 2003-Present
Genres: Sufi, Folk, Punjabi

Picture 19

Okay fine, he’s an artist most of our parents/grandparents listen to but, they have been raving about this man for a reason. His lyrical poetry revels the glory of mysticism. In fact, his poems have inspired many around the world. Sartaj has taken his sufiana music career to another level by dressing and writing like Warris Shah, a man who gave a new direction to Punjabi literature. Looks like Sartaj may be on same path, looking to change the world.

11. Lehmber Hussainpuri
Years Active: 2001-Present
Genres: Punjabi and Bhangra

-4

It’s a talented voice you can’t fail to recognize. Lehmber first appeared on the bhangra scene in collaboration with Dr. Zeus on the album Unda the Influence. Lehmber’s voice became a hit with both traditional and modern bhangra fans. We can’t forget his most notable tracks: Ah Ni Kuriye, Das Ja, Saadi Gali, Seetiyan and the worldwide smash hit Desi Rock. Hit after hit Lehmber stays in the spotlight!

10. MC Metz and Trix
Years Active: 2000-Present
Genres: Urban Desi

Picture 19

These two MCs became the hottest duo to hit the Urban Desi music scene in the UK. After teaming up with big names like Surinder Rattan, RDB, Mac G and others they quickly gained status as the ‘Red man & Method Man’ of the Desi music scene. With hits like Tappe,Ambarsariya,Aja Mahi and more, this duo proved they wont back down from what they do best, rap and MC!

9. Swami
Years Active: 2000- Present
Genres: Pop, Alternative, Hip-Hop, Bhangra and Rock

-5

The world hasn’t seen a band like this yet. Tell me where can you get a partially Desi band who keep their traditional sense yet, break the barriers of typical pop music. Do you remember the phrase ‘Desi Rock’? Well, that phrase originated by Swami music! Their album Desi Rock was voted a BBC Radio 1 favorite which then, launched their career into orbit. They have been producing fresh-desi-neofunk beats ever since. UDR loves raw music and artists, thus placing them for #9 on our list.

8.  Dr. Zeus
Years Active: 2001-Present
Genres: Bhangra, Punjabi and Urban Desi

Picture 21

You’ve probably danced to all his hit singles: Gwandian Da Dhol, Kangna, Ah Ni Kuriye, Sat Sri Akal, Assi Haan Punjabi and more. If Lehmber is singing over a sick beat, it’s probably Zeus and in the background making some music magic. Zeus has the ability to take traditional Punjabi lyrics and music and merge them into something so hip and modern. Zeus is a talented producers, I’m sure you all can’t wait for what he has coming up next!

7. Raghav
Years Active: 2003- Present
Genres- Pop, Hindi Pop

-7

His voice sounds like it’s coming out of some old raagi’s mouth but, the funny thing is he’s a young guy with a enourmous voice. He hails out of Canada, was vocally trained in Los Angles and now resides in the UK- this proves that Raghav is surely all over the map and verfies his worldwide fame. With over 1.3 million records sold worldwide, Raghav has raised the bar for Desi-pop artists.

6.Miss Pooja
Years Active: 2006-Present
Genres: Bhangra and Punjabi

-8

She’s known as “The Duet Queen.” If you happen to come across someone blasting bhangra music, most likely it’s a duet sung by Miss Pooja. She’s produces hit after hit and you know you can’t get enough of her flirty and fun duets. It’s a relief to see female artists putting in much time and effort to reach the top! Girl Power!

5. Juggy D
Years Active: 2004- Present
Genres: Punjabi, Bhangra, Urban Desi

-9

Thanks to Rishi Rich, Juggy D made his debut alongside Jay Sean. Juggy D has been the face of the UK Bhangra  scene ever since he broke through in 2004. Not only has he collaborated with his fellow peers but, has worked with big names like Madonna, Ricky Martin and Craig David. Let’s not forget his guest apperrences in a couple Bollywood films, this guy was a hit and will continue to be!

4.  Imran Khan
Years Active:
Genre: Punjabi and Urban Desi

Picture 23

We started warming up to him after his hit single, ‘Ni Nachleh’ and since then, we can’t stop bumping his beats! Although he has only had one album, Imran Khan has taken the Desi music scene by storm. His album Untouchable came out in 2009 with his catchy tune ‘Amplifier’ which, has been playing in every corner of the world, with youngsters and adults alike! Imran Khan has put Holland on the map!

3. Bohemia
Years Active: 2002-Present
Genre: Punjabi, Urdu and Desi Hip-Hop

Picture 20

Critically  acclaimed as the ‘pioneer of Desi hip-hop’, Bohemia has set a standard for artists rapping in Punjabi and Urdu. After 3 hit albums: Vich Pardesan De, Pesa Nasha Pyar and The Rap Star, Bohemia has made his mark in the Desi music industry even, and even in Bollywood! Bohemia will continue to wow us with his rhymes and urban flavor.

2. RDB
Years Active: 2001-Present
Genre: Punjabi, Bhangra and Urban Desi

-11

This list wouldn’t be complete without the most popular bhangra brothers on the scene. Ever since they step foot onto the plate, they’ve always brought a new sound with them and created their own type of genre of music. Teaming up with big names like Akshay Kumar, Snoop Dogg and others has definitely put them on our top three.

1. Jay Sean
Years Active: 2003- Present
Genre:  R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop

-12

The first ever Desi to sign with one of the biggest records labels in the world. You can’t beat that, can you? Not only has this guy been a favorite with the Desi folks but, now he has made a name for himself in mainstream music. After being signed with Cash Money records, this guy has been flying high on the clouds of fame! If your rubbing  shoulders with Lil Wayne, Birdman and others alike, your doing something right. That’s why Mr. Kamaljit Jhooti has earned our #1 spot.
