I recently wrote how much I enjoyed the very short but sweet clip of Preet Mani’s track “Akh Mastani” on the DJ KSR “Forever” Mixtape.
Well Brampton representative, Preet just dropped his latest video entitled “Yaari” off his upcoming mixtape “Mani in the Making.”
I’m definitely feeling the chillness of the track, and the Sitar in the hook is a splendid touch of production.
Canada continues to impress.

P.S. Here’s to hoping that DJ KSR’s version of “Akh Mastani” makes it onto the mixtape.
I know I’ve been away from the blog a bit, but I think this will more than make up for it. BIG time!
Released last month, DJ KSR’s Forever Mixtape is by far the best bhangra mixtape I have heard. It covers the key genres, and the mixing creativity is sublime. Anyone that comes up with mixing LMFAO’s “Shots” with DJ Vix’ “Ah Chak Bottal” followed by Kaka’s “Daru Peeke” is Aces in my books.
Artists covered range from the following:
Imran Khan, Diljit, Sarbjit Cheema, Malkit, JK, Heera, Dark MC, Kaka, Miss Pooja, House of Pain, Drake, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Jay-Z and some Bollywood tunes I’m not that aware of for obvious reasons. (Trust me this list is the tip of the iceberg.)
My favourite part (about 11 minutes in) is this Preet Mani track “Akh Mastani.” The dude is from the Toronto area, and I really could use some more info on him as well.
DJ KSR has been on the scene for 7 years, and he will be releasing his first official album this summer. For more info on him, check out his facebook page.
P.S. You’re welcome.
ADH releases his second video from his upcoming “Taubah Taubah” album.
The first track features production by Hunterz, and if you cannot tell by the chorus or the music, the second features the production skills of Bally Jagpal.
OK I must admit, I like the video concept, because it translates over the two tracks. I also see myself listening to the Bally Jagpal produced track again. (I’m seriously starved for some B21 style music.)
The album is set to release on October 9, 2009.
What’s with all the solid choruses but meh songs?
