Today Pravini releases her fifth album “Unexpected Turn of Events” but it’s not like her previous albums. Normally we’re used to hearing R&B/Soul vibe, but this time she’s switched it up. Her new album is a blend of raw rock and pop (interesting combo).

The album title not only reflects the music itself, but also the becoming of it. The majority of the songs were written not during writing sessions, but during unexpected moments in between.

Earlier this year, she released her single “Go!” and now she’s making plans to tour the Netherlands and UK.

Hopefully we can get some tracks from her album to pass onto DJ Dips and Mentor for Desi Raw Radio.

You are probably thinking this is a strange combo… but if you follow Courtney Love on twitter, she has been reported going on these rants and raves…but I feel like she is taking on a new role of getting in touch with her spiritual side. Or trying to find a calm and balance in her life, it hasn’t been easy for her… listening to her album “Noboby’s Daughter” you sense a real triumph but a painful journey. According to her tweets, Courtney learned about Deepak through Russell Simmons, she wants to go on one of Deepak’s retreats. Another person she wants as a mentor is Tony Robbins… All the best to you Courtney, I personally loved her in the movie “Man on the Moon” (Andy Kaufman bio pic – starring Jim Carrey)

@DeepakChopra when is your next retreat, @uncleRUSH is love itself and i hear great things about you from friend wld take the time,for you,

@CourtneyLoveUKPlease DM me so we can connect xxx

I trust my pals in the UK when they tweet me up and say “Petz you got to check out this new artist!” Read below to check out a new artist Mentor is working with!

A new artist stepping into the scene, I always love fresh meat mmmmm!!! On July 22nd THE TRUTH will be debuting his first single “Kya Karoon” and just hearing a sample of it, in this video… I can’t wait! The Truth born and raised in East London, as a teenager, the underground UK garage scene captivated his attention. He made his own way through the underground urban scene in East London… where he got to work alongside several MCs and producers. He went toe-to-toe through some tough ass MC battles, finally THE TRUTH was encourage by his mates and fellow MCs to take his music to the next level.

‘I want to make a difference to music, this has been my dream as a child, no more poor quality videos we want to raise the standard of music and represent Asians in the right way, it’s not always about material things and that’s THE TRUTH’. says THE TRUTH. And “truthfully” speaking the Asian scene needs that.

“Kya Karoon” pays homage to some of the British Asian Music industries big players like AG Dolla, Imran khan and RDB. It talks about a young rapper trying to make it into the scene, but not knowing where to go and what to do. I think at one point in our lives, we have all felt this way, I know I have when I was in London trying to “make it” on radio. It amazes me, the Asian scene in the UK is FILLED I’m talking FILLED like a LANDFILL of talented artists, but sadly 90% of the time we will never get a chance to hear their music. Look what’s happening right now with the BBC Asian Network closure, Friction had a strong platform of debuting new artists for our ears… As you can tell, this song, “Kya Karoon” already has me pumped up.

Working with Bobby Wonda, another emerging producer in the scene, has had a passion for music since the tender age of five. He’s felt the trials and tribulations down this musical road. Between Bobby Wonda and THE TRUTH, together they will give the Asian scene an electrifying pulse!
