DJ Harpz finally released his first video from his upcoming album “You Think You Know”. Featuring the vocals of Bakshi Billa, the album will also contain the vocals of Inder Kooner of En Karma, Sukhwinder Panchi, Meet Malkit, Jaswinder Daghamia, Romesh Chohan, Jaswant Heera and many more. Of all the vocalists listed, I’m most excited to hear what Harpz has in store for us with his collaboration with Romesh Chohan.
Panjabi MC as you may know, dropped his latest summer anthem “Bari Barsi” this past Thursday, and it rocketed straight into the top 100 UK iTunes charts (so far settling at no. 89)
Lately, whenever PMC releases a song, I can’t help but think that the music is just different enough to make people buy the song, but at the same time, it sounds almost like his previous few songs. Case in point, I played it in my car this past Friday for one of my boys as we were going for lunch, and as soon as the music started, he mockingly started singing the lyrics to “Moorni”.
My spidey senses also started tingling a few weeks ago, when a certain Producer from the UK tweeted something to the sentiment of a Producer he looks up to has the same sound in most of his songs, and that he should start to switch up his sound.
With all of this in mind, I still think Panjabi MC is one of the best Producers out there (obviously). His songs still have a certain polish to them that other Producers still aren’t capable of matching. I can’t help but liken P’s skills to the rest of the people in the Bhangra game as a Toyota compared to a Lexus. Yes, the Toyota is well made, all the fundamentals are there, but a Lexus is just an overly nicer polished vehicle.
Moving on to the video, I’m glad someone finally used Bhangra Empire in a video. They have been working extremely hard on their performances over the years, and I’m glad that they are getting – even more – worldwide exposure.
Also, the fact that Ashok Gill made it on to the video is also a fantastic showcase.
Support the track, and get your copy from iTunes.

Tru-Skool, I hate you for making me put up this promo.
(Only because I hate putting up 30 second promos of nothingness. However, the music to this promo is too sick)
Hai ni “Panga Peh Giyah!”
