Special Thanksgiving treat… HDhami and Raje Shwari at SOBs

Basement Bhangra hosted by DJ Rekha is “New York’s best kept secret” for the underground party scene. On Thanksgiving Eve (November 24th) H Dhami and Raje Shwari will be performing live at SOBs. For the last couple of months, it seems like DJ Rekha has been supporting Raje Shwari, she dropped her new single – “Keep a Secret” at a Basement Bhangra night. Could this be a new comeback for Raje Shwari? Raje has been living under the radar after leaving Timbaland’s camp. Her “Indian Flute” had moderate success, but the thing about some Desi artists, especially females, they tend to get caught up with shady management and we never hear from them. H Dhami was featured on Raghav’s new single “So Much” (The Neo Desi mix) but his fans are waiting for his second album. Between 2008 – 2010, we’ve heard H Dhami on Punjabi By Nature’s “Crowd Pleaser” album and Mumzy’s single “One More Dance”

Is there an under current collaboration between H Dhami and Raje Shwari? How can the two of them benefit from each other? H could probably open doors for Raje in the UK Asian scene and Raje could kick open a mainstream door for H. It would be interesting to see H recite Magoo and Sebastian’s lyrics from Indian Flute.

I got a soft spot for Dubstep, when you combined it with one of my favorite genres (Bhangra) it’s always a hit or miss with me because I tend to be tune and not too impressed 90% of the time.  But DSB comprised this cool mix tape, we are currently playing Miss Pooja, Dr. Zeus (listeners really feeling this one) and Bikram Singh on UDR’s Junction show.

Imran Khan – Bewafa DSB REMIX

Earlier we reported that Bohemia was raising awareness regarding the floods in Pakistan, by urging his fans to post green ribbons on their twitter profiles, now Bohemia will be traveling to the region to perform and bring the much needed attention to Pakistan. He will be performing in Lahore and Islamabad, the energy he brings on stage will kick start people into action to come together and “fight the storm” as one.

Hallmark Events Dubai and Pakistan is sponsoring this concert, proceeds will go to help Pakistan, where millions are displaced due to the floods. This cause is close to Bohemia’s heart, he’s originally from Pakistan and wants to do everything he can to help the people there.

Raghav’s “So Much” featuring Kardinal Offishall, just made Canada’s Top 10 emerging artist list… everyone has the reese peanut butter cup fever! I love that “mmm” sound he does in the second verse, the song is pretty catchy! I can’t wait to see what else comes out of his upcoming album “The Phoenix” … the neodesi remix featuring H-Dhami has a nice beat to it.  I would love to see both of them on stage! Congrats to Raghav and team for making it to the top 10! buy So Much here

Foji Gill on a Revolutionary Path…

Foji got a wonderful write up in “The Times of India” I have often praised Foji for the cinematography effort he puts in his music videos. While everyone is out celebrating India’s Independence day, this year Foji brought Shaheed Bhagat Singh in the limelight again. Surprisingly 2nd and 3rd generations of Desis have little idea who Bhagat Singh was and his contribution as one of India’s freedom fighters. With the adrenaline pumping video, hopefully it will grab the youths attention to read up on Shaheed Bhagat Singh. The immaculate detail Foji puts in the video – blows my mind! He shot the video in a tiny village, Muskhabad, near Samrala. Congrats on making headlines in India Foji! You got fans in America, who can’t wait to see you!

Big Plans for POL Soundtrack

Russell (Uncle Rush) Simmons (left) will be taking the “Politics of Love” soundtrack under his wing along with the POL music supervisor Craig Nobles (right). With Uncle Rush’s expertise, the soundtrack is going to be off the hook. I’ve always had a soft spot for soundtracks, take Bollywood for example the movie might be crap, but the music is good. That was a statement I used to hear from a lot of my friends “the movie sucked, but the music was good” haha. I have high hopes for “Politics of Love” as of now, Mallika seems to be having a lot of fun soaking it up in La La land.

This is so adorable and rocking! Check this out, one of Swami’s fans, Romy (age 9) drew a picture of the group! I loved how Romy had Bobby give a little wave! So cute!!! This is definitely work of art, if it doesn’t make front cover of the album… perhaps it can be put inside the album booklet… or made into a retro t-shirt for all of Swami fans to enjoy!!!

Vishal’s debut single – Majajne

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.
