BhangraPolice a genius or a fool?



Our friends @SimplyBhangra revealed they know @BhangraPolice’s identity.  He’s a long time respected producer who is now on the artist SHITLIST.  What a way to shoot yourself in the foot eh? At one time or another, some of us have come up with alter-egos, some of the best tweets come from alter-ego personas. But BhangraPolice took a step too far, it’s one thing to be naughty/humorous, but when you spit venom and stir up shit… if you are respected in the industry there’s no need to come up with an alter-ego.  You are respected for your creativity, so speak creativity too!

The one thing he succeeded at was pissing off a lot of people and burning down bridges. I felt really bad for Bally Jagpal, who MANY suspected he was the one posting as BhangraPolice. Sorry folks…its not Bally (from what I’ve been told)

BhangraPolice is gone,  but not forgotten.  Any PR genius want to come to this artist’s rescue? And BhangraPolice if you are reading this, I would gladly give you a platform to explain yourself. You know where to reach me.

Foji Gill on a Revolutionary Path…



Picture 14

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!

Foji new single – Shaheed Bhagat Singh



Picture 25

Yesterday on SimplyBhangra, they debuted Foji Gill’s new video “Shaheed Bhagat Singh” Foji is quickly gaining a rep for producing amazing videos to go along with his singles. His first single “Dafa Ho Ja” featured Miss Pooja and created a strong buzz, with the lingering question … Who is Foji Gill??? It’s becoming clear he’s not a “one hit wonder” but someone who is giving the scene a strong jolt of creative flare!

The video is a tribute to the freedom fighter that Foji admires…

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.

Dafa Ho Ja staying strong for 19 weeks…



Picture 53

Foji Gill jolted us with “Dafa Ho Ja” which I loved the music video for this song, I would rave about it on my radio show… I loved the old school style with traditional beats. For the past 19 weeks, Dafa Ho Ja has stayed in the top 10 on the “Official Download Chart” on BBC Asian Network. The single dropped on Feb 26th, every one wanted to know… who is Foji?! I remember Bobby Friction interviewed him, when Bobby took over the Charts show on the BeeB. He’s young and has already proven he’s no “one hit wonder” in the scene. Miss Pooja was featured on the track (folks who listen to my show loved Foji vocals with Miss Pooja up in the mix). Dafa Ho Ja probably saved me one too many times, when I would constantly get bombarded with Miss Pooja request.

His new single, Bruahhh, is currently number 1 on the SimplyBhangra Charts, Foji is gearing up to launch his forth single. The single is going to be dedicated to his hero, Bhagat Singh. The music video will be shot in rural spots in Punjab, he’s definitely setting trends in the Asian music scene.
