Last week I found out Deep passed away in May. I was shocked to hear the news. The team at SimplyBhangra.com wrote a lovely tribute about Deep’s accomplishments in the music scene. Definitely check out the their article.

Deep reached out to us here at UDR back in 2009, when we debuted on KLOK 1170am. He sent us his track Siti Mar (feat. DJ Sanj and Kamla Punjabi) which I really liked and we kept in touch here and there when he came out with new tracks.

I didn’t want this to be a bandwagon tribute, I just felt bad I didn’t know about his passing. It was my own fault because I’ve been out of the scene for awhile.

When I heard about his death, it took me back to Soni Pabla’s death. So sudden. So shocking. When an artist passes away so suddenly, they leave us their legacy — their music. Deep will live on through his beats, I’ll remember him fondly.

UDR sends our condolences to his family and friends.

Deep Cold takes pride in being an independent and he takes his beats very seriously. We debuted his Sitti Mar track, when UDR used to be on 1170am, now that he’s gotten back in touch, we’ll be sure to showcase more of his tracks on The Junction. Check out Mel Karrade Rabba – from the dirty south to the pind! with Kamla Punjabi.

Read on….

Marked for success and determined to achieve it, Deep and Kamla Punjabi have been on a road less traveled.  Years of dedication and timeless nights spent burning the midnight oil; these two are by far the undisputable champions of the Punjabi rap game.  Deep started rapping at the age of 11 and has opened for the likes of Scarface, Slim Thug, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Lil Keke, Paul Wall, Chamillionaire, Papa Reu, UGK, Mike Jones and many more.  Kamla Punjabi has been singing traditional folk songs at festivals since the tender age of 12.  If creativity was the objective they would be named the greatest of intellects, but it’s much more than that.  Since the beginning, it wasn’t only about being on the mic and being heard, but rather making good quality heartfelt music.  Their music is a bridge between generations.  Not only do they express the struggles of being successful, but harmonize it in a way that can relate to a vast audience.  When you meet them you would never believe their calm and collective nature after hearing the powerful messages they send through their tracks.  But what does it really come down to?  So I ask them… And they simply reply, being the best.  They will not stop until their words are heard, they will not tire until their message has been felt, and they will not cower to any man standing.  If you ask me, they define dedication.

And with all that said, let the story begin… commitment a word often used in the wrong sense, but clearly defined to me by Deep as simply being in the studio.  Hustle hard in any hustle that you pick, nobody becomes successful overnight.  When Deep and Kamla Punjabi first met, music was probably the last thing on their mind.  They were simply friends who enjoyed music.  They would hang out and freestyle and impress every ear that was within range, without ever putting any thought towards embarking on a musical career together.  But as the mind alters so does the mood…..and when the mood strikes there is magic in the air.  A perfect collaboration of east meets west creating an atmosphere that sends the mind into abyss.  They have only blessed us with the tip of the iceberg so far, numerous hit tracks still wade in the waters as the game is not as easy as it seems. One glance into their eyes and one can see that there is no lack of confidence.  The comradery is not only seen within them, but is felt through the bass and the treble and translated through the inspiring lyrics.

Whether it’s in India or America or both these two are destined for triumph.  The hardships, the pain, and the tears only add fuel to the flames inside them.  Such a dynamic duo will not rest until the goal at hand is achieved.  Music lovers everywhere will experience what it feels like to be touched by a track.  As we draw the conversation to a close we sit back, awaiting a new musical sound that the world has never heard before.  Without further ado, we proudly present Deep Cold and Kamla Punjabi and their appropriately titled album ‘NACH NACH’(Dance Dance), produced by J-Nas (DJ Sanj).
