DJing at Basement Bhangra in New York over their Thanksgiving Holiday, Panjabi MC debuted his upcoming track on his next album “56 Districts”.
The song has Panjabi MC’s now classic iTumbi sound, along with a heavy synth and bass line.

Oh, before he drops the album, there’s a small matter of releasing the Moorni Remix featuring Warren G.
For the last ten (10!) years Rekha Malhotra a.k.a. DJ Rekha has been spinning the wheels of steel in New York clubs, introducing and spreading the Bhangra vibe.
Last fall, after nine years of Djing, DJ Rekha has moved on to the next step of her career, releasing her debut CD “Basement Bhangra.” This isn’t just any CD, it’s got some weight behind it. Koch Records is the label behind the album.
Even the title track, which was co-produced by Wyclef Jean of the Fugees features vocals by fellow NY native Bikram Singh, and a verse from Wyclef.
The rest of the album is a compilation of tracks, which takes listeners on a musical journey with some of the biggest songs recorded over the past, with contributions from the likes of Zeus, PMC, and Bally Sagoo.
