Last year, Mandeep Sethi’s “Operation Bluestar” (Directed by Shawn Singh) music video was shown, due to the controversial nature and for Sethi’s safety, it hasn’t been broadcast on youtube – but it was well received by audience.

Walk this way… with a Punjabi Twist




Hey  Diddle Diddle… you got to check this out. The Beautiful Losers feat. Mixman Shawn doing a cover of Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” here’s the kicker…Mixman Shawn dropped some lyrics in Punjabi! It’s great to see Mixman OUT of the studio and up on stage, SHOWCASING his OWN talent, instead of enhancing other people’s talent. I really hope he focuses on his own music and career for 2011.

DOWNLOAD Twist and Shout SAMPLE 1:40

Taz (Stereo Nation) new album “Twist and Shout” has just got platinum in India, it’s certainly another milestone for the Prince of Asian Pop.

Taking a 60s classic from the Isley Brothers/Beatles, Taz revamped it with a Bollywood and Pop sping, after recording the song, he was requested to make a copy in Spanish, Russian, Arabic and many other languages.

I remember when I was in Birmingham, visiting Taz, we were jamming to “Twist and Shout” in his car on the way to his studio in Coventry, I knew it was going to be a big hit. The thing about Taz is that he really thinks outside the box. As an artist, you always have to keep moving forward with your craft.

Jasmine Sandlas and Mixman Shawn



Picture 5

Last week, UDR went behind the scenes of the new Jasmine Sandlas music video. Mixman Shawn gave us the inside scoop they will be combining two songs on the video, it all goes well within the scene. This is just curve any bootleggers attempts to hijack the tracks.

The video has scenes of Jasmine talking to her girl friends, being approached by a guy, Jasmine and Mixman on stage and a crowd getting pumped by Jasmine’s music. Jasmine was really excited because she could feel the energy of the extras in the video.

But every one wants to know… when is Jasmine’s album coming out? It will be out SOON! My prediction is we will be seeing this smoking duo in the clubs – performing tracks!
