We’ve had releases from all over the globe from established artists like Bups Saggu, Gurdas Maan, DJ Vix, Tigerstyle, Sahara, Diljit Dosanjh to new acts like Gurj Sidhu, Supnandan, Jenny Johal, Raashi Sood, Kesh K and Sukhi Sivia, to name but a few. Whilst each song is unique, they all have one thing in common in this particular list; they are amongst the best tracks released in 2015.

 

2015 has been a big year for the punjabi music industry with great music coming from the UK, India, Canada and Australia. With so many great songs released, it would be impossible to come up with a top 10. With that in mind, however our team of music experts and fanatics came up with our top songs released in 2015. This list is created to showcase the best in Punjabi music released in 2015. There were a lot of great songs released in 2015, however this list summarises the top tracks that in our opinion defined 2015 in Punjabi music!
 
Please Note – This list is in no particular order!

Jenny Johal – Narma (March)

 

Jenny Johal broke into the scene in January with her debut single – Yaari Jatt Di. Two months later in March, she released her second single – Narma; and what a track to release following her debut. The track did serious damage both on the chart lists and on the dance floor, with it still doing the rounds today. Its just a great track musically and even in its presentation. Everything from the single cover art, to the video concept and quality definitely added to the overall enjoyment. The production by Desi Crew was fantastic and wasn’t overproduced; it complimented the vocals of Jenny Johal perfectly. The vocals are amazing, coupled with the great lyrics provided by the highly talented Bunty Bains, Narma was sure to be a guaranteed hit. Jenny Johal has released three singles in 2015; Yaari Jatt Di, Narma and Mutiyaar Jatt Di. Expectations were big for the second release, however we doubt anyone could have predicted the huge success Narma has seen.

Kulwinder Billa – Timetable (January)

 

Kulwinder Billa released Timetable in early January. The track literally came out of nowhere and within a number of days was already on every chart list and in the DJ’s playlist. Its not hard to see why as Timetable had such elegant production, catchy lyrics provided by Abbi Fatehgaria, a great melody and superb vocals. The catchy tumbi and great vaja pieces are prominent throughout the track and add to the overall experience. The video was also superb, really encapsulating the emotion of the track with rich, vibrant outfits, great scenery and a fun and quirky plot. Timetable was heavily featured on Bhangra dance groups and competitions, and we can see why, its elegant production and catchy lyrics make you want to join in the Bhangra.

Gurj Sidhu – Putt Sardaran De (November)

 

Gurj Sidhu is a newcomer to the scene having released just three singles. His latest offering was alongside the one and only Tru Skool for the track ‘Putt Sardaran De’. The track showcases Gurj Sidhu’s powerful raw and unfiltered folk vocals. The production by Tru Skool is crisp and rich in quality, and again a perfect blend of Punjabi Folk and Hip Hop sounds, which is something that you would expect from any Tru Skool track. The blend of Punjabi instruments along with subtle hip hop sound results in a hard-hitting beat, powerful vocals and an overall great listen. Something that is a trend with the songs in this list is the video quality and standard. Along with a superb track, a single has to have a great video to compliment it, especially in todays society. The video to Putt Sardaran De is no exception. Lovely scenery and locations, vibrant colours, great flow and most importantly, great Bhangra choreography and dance moves. The crisp production, vibrant video and stellar vocals highlights the rich Punjabi culture that seems to have filtered out recently.

Badal ft Aman Hayer – Chaska Duet (October)

 

Badal made his debut in the music scene in 2012 with the hit track Kasoor ft Aman Hayer. He then released another big track in Takk Ke. 2015 saw the fourth pairing from the duo in “Chaska Duet”. The song is superb, brilliantly produced and has a real classic throwback feel to it. The track features not only Badal but also the very talented vocals of Jaswinder Jassi. Its a fun and energetic track, well produced, great lyrics and vocals are spot on. Jaswinder Jassi as a vocalist is someone who we believe should get a lot more recognition; a highly underrated and talented singer. She really adds to the track and gives it that added kick which is definitely  noticeable. Chaska Duet is truly a great track; it has elements of old folk tracks yet at the same time incorporates a unique modern sound. Aman Hayer’s production again is fantastic, really crisp, well mastered and produced; something that Aman Hayer has perfected over the years.

Ranjit Bawa – Tankha (November)

 

Ranjit Bawa released Tankha in November with lyrics by Kabal Saroopwali and music by Desi Crew. This is a great track by Ranjit Bawa, one that most Bhangra dance groups will look to include in their performances. The production is very lively, upbeat and packed with a thumping dhol beat. Ranjit Bawa’s powerful vocals match the high tempo track perfectly. We really like the sarangi pieces. The melody and lyrics are really catchy; and there isn’t much more to say other than its a great Bhangra track, great vocals, lyrics and production!

Ranjhana – Pappi Gill ft Rajeev B (May)

 

Rajeev B teamed up wth the highly talented Pappi Gill to release Ranjhana, in what he described as a tribute to the original Rang Kaala by Mukhtar Sahota and that is exactly how we would describe the track. Ranjhana follows the same flow and melody. Papa Gills vocals are sharp and distinctly clear as usual. The subtle background flute in the chorus creates a distinct mood and atmospheric vibe. Production is crisp, clean and simple. The chorus can get slightly repetitive at times however Ranjhana is still a fantastic track and a great tribute to the original track Rang Kala. The track is a message from the women’ perspective asking her Ranjha to come and meet her soon, before she disappears into the darkness. The beautiful lyrics by Karan Buttar are highlighted through the powerful and strong vocals by Pappi Gill.

Resham Anmol – Jatt Di Yaari is a great track produced by the one and only Desi Crew. Jatti Di Yaari features lyrics by the highly talented and in demand Bunty Bains. Its again a very catchy track, nice production and a great family oriented and clean video to go along with it. The track emphasises Resham’s powerful vocals and vocal range.

Kuljeet Chouhan ft SoE – Hasdi Sohni (September)

 

Kuljeet Chouhan released Hasdi Sohni featuring SoE in September. SoE does a great job on the production, not overproducing it or adding unneeded instruments or samples. We loved the flute pieces mid-way, it definitely complimented the track nicely. Lyrics were penned by Nav Garhiwala. Kuljeet Chouhan has smooth and soothing vocals and this track was a perfect demonstration of this. SoE is another artist who we feel is underrated as a music producer; his style and sound is refreshing to hear as his approach is unique and adds a different take to his tracks. Kuljeet Chouhan’s vocals are expressive and you can hear real emotion in his voice. Overall the track is just a really chilled out and relaxing song; something that you can simply play in your car or when you are outside. We definitely recommend you check out SoE on social media, iTunes & Soundcloud to hear more of his stuff; highly talented and has released some great numbers that deserve to be highlighted!

Diljit Dosanjh – 5Taara (December)

 

Diljit Dosanjh returns with 5Taara alongside Jatinder Shah via Speed Records. Diljit Dosanjh has been known for his upbeat Bhangra tracks in recent years and this is no exception. 5Taara is a great Bhangra dance track, with great lyrics provided by Ranbir Singh. No video would be complete without the classic and now iconic Diljit Dosanjh dance moves. They way he seamlessly dances and comes up with new and innovative routines is remarkable. 5Taara has a great melody and lyrics that are catchy, which you cannot help but sing along to.

Kaur B – Phulkari (April)

 

Kaur B is a relatively new artist, however in the short space of her career has gone on to release great singles and also sang a duet with the Crown Prince of Bhangra, Jazzy B. Kaur B released her new album Desi Robinhood in April this year featuring production by Desi Crew and lyrics by Bunty Bains. The album featured a whole host of great tracks including Z-Security, Killer Eyes, Supne, however Phulkari is the standout track in our opinion. The melody, verses, music and vocals are all in sync and just work. The combination of Kaur B and Bunty Bains delivers again with Phulkari. Bunty Bains really knows what lyrics, melody and songs work with his artists and how to incorporate new concepts and trends into songs; a trait of a highly talented and knowledgeable lyricst. Production is very simplistic, nothing over-complicated with hard hitting dhols and great musical and sarangi pieces.

Kesh K – Deed Yaar Di (September)

 

Kesh K, a British born singer, released his second single in September featuring the music maestro Sachin Ahuja with ‘Deed Yaar Di’. This is a great sufi track and has been articulately produced by Sachin Ahuja. All instruments were produced and recorded live. Kesh K delivers a heartfelt and passionate vocal performance, with the music complimenting the soft-style. The Bulbul Tarang piece midway through the song was absolutely fantastic. Its no surprise that Kesh K would go to Sachin Ahuja to produce a sufi song. the musical knowledge that Sachin has is extraordinary; his musical and technical experience is what makes this a very special song. What makes this track stand out even more was the great and vibrant video alongside it; colourful, great costumes and family friendly.

Bups Saggu – Bodyguard (November)

 

Bups Saggu released his second single in 2015 alongside two newcomers to the scene; Jotti Dhillon and Sandy Sandhu. From the moment we first heard the promo, we could tell Bodyguard was going to be a big track. Vocals from the two newcomers are refreshing, energetic and impactful. Production is also fresh and really catchy, you cannot help yourself nodding your head and bopping along to it; the change mid-way was a welcomed surprise. The highlight of the track has to be the vocals though, Sandy Sandhu and Jotti Dillon truly excel, perfectly complimenting the track, the pairing goes well and overall offers a pleasant listen.

Sitarey compliments Jaz Dhami’s smooth and soft-styled vocals perfectly. Tigerstyle do an excellent job on the production with this track. The simplistic approach pays off as you are not overloaded with unnecessary instruments or samples and you can clearly hear the emotion in the vocals. Its just as really chilled out song and lyrics by Preet Kanwal are really addictive. Sitarey is one track that is bound to get stuck in your head.

Raashi Sood – Udeek (October)

 

Udeek features the vocals of Raashi Sood and production by The PropheC. Udeek is a fantastic track, beautiful melody, soothing vocals and great production. The vocals by Raashi are really calming and smooth. From the first time we heard Udeek, we knew it was going to be something special. The whole track just works and is a pleasant listen, from the lyrics, vocals down to the production. PropheC offers a simplistic and elegant approach with the production; its easy to overproduce tracks and add unnecessary samples and elements, however the production on Udeek is a perfect blend. Raashi Sood is definitely one singer to look out for in 2016, having released a handle of great songs so far. Udeek highlights her smooth and soothing vocals.

Baljit Malwa returned to the Bhangra scene in 2015 alongside Kaos Productions with Sohni Te Sunakhi which was released in November. You hear Baljit Malwa’s raw and powerful vocals right at the beginning of the track. Jelly Manjeetpuri’s strong messaged lyrics are brought to life by the powerful vocals of Baljit Malwa. The production by Kaos Productions compliments Baljit’s vocals perfectly, offering a pure folk backdrop. This is definitely a track for all the Bhangra folk enthusiasts; Baljit Malwa’s vocals have been compared to the great Surjit Bindrakhi and its easy to make the comparison.

Lakhwinder Wadali released his highly anticipated single Laggian Zora Zori in November with music by Aar Bee. Lakhwinder Wadali is one of our personal favourite vocalists and he didn’t disappoint with his latest release. Having started his music career in 2005, Lakhwinder released a delightful number on his 10th anniversary as an artist. Laggian Zora Zori combines traditional punjabi lyrics with a fast and pumping beat. The tumbi pieces are a great addition; the flutes in the background give it that extra bit of flavour. Lyrics by Jaswant Baaz are perfect and you cannot help yourself singling along. Another standout is the fantastic video alongside the track. It was a colourful and energetic video, beautiful choreography and very family oriented and clean; something that is common with Lakhwinder Wadali’s music videos. The music compliments Lakhwindre’s vocals exquisitely.

Diljit Dosanjh ft Gurdas Maan – Ki Banu Duniya Da (August)

 

Ki Banu Duniya Da is a collaboration between two great artists; the iconic Gurdas Maan and the international superstar Diljit Dosanjh. Gurdas Maan rarely collaborates with other artists. However when it was announced he was singing a duet with non other than Diljit Dosanjh, we knew it would be a big song.The track reiterates the message for the youth that speaks about not forgetting your roots, in this age of modernity.

Aman Sandhu – Record (June)

 

Record truly shows off the diverse production capabilities of E=MC. While it is easy to over-produce a song, adding a bundle of instruments, E=MC takes a different approach and strips that all away. With a grimy bass line, powerful vaja piece, its hard not to clap along with the song. Aman Sandhu’s vocals really shine in this song and it works well with the production. Having such simplistic production is very risky, however E=MC adds the right balance of percussion and music pieces coupled with the deep bass line to make this track stand out. Aman Sandhu is a vocalist who we are very big on, ever since his first release in Koka Nakhro Da and with E=MC guiding him, we are sure he is bound to be a major player in the industry in the future.

The pairing of Dr Zeus and Fateh is extremely pleasant to hear and the two seem to have formulated a recipe that just keeps on delivering; Inch being no exception. Expectations were high for Zora’s second release after Haa, and he certainly delivered. Accumulating over 12 million youtube videos, highlights the huge popularity of the track and the impact it has had worldwide. If you are looking for the signature Zeus sound, great vocals and catchy lyrics, Inch is the perfect track for you.

Dj Vix ft Ishmeet Narula- Sona Lagda (May)

 

After releasing a few singles, Dj Vix released his new album Chapter V in May. The standout track on the album in our opinion was Sona Lagda. The melody is strong and very tuneful; vocals by Ishmeet are expressive and there is real confidence in her singing. Its hard not to stick this on repeat a few times! Production is simple and has a real throwback feel to Dj Vix’s previous work (a nice addition!). Ishmeets vocals are sweet and soothing making Sona Lagda a really nice and great listen.

After having released the huge hit ‘Timetable’ just two months prior, Kulwinder Billa returned with an equally classic track in Chakkwein Suit. Production duties were given to Tigerstyle, who didn’t disappoint. The elegant flutes, great sarangi pieces and calming beat really sets the mood throughout the track. It is not overproduced and compliments both the track and Kulwinder’s vocals. The melody fits in with the summertime jam-vibe. Overall this was a great track, filled with great lyrics, a very catchy melody, simplistic yet appropriate music. Chakkwein Suit is one of our favourites released this year. The melody is entrancing, production is so elegant and the lyrics by Preet Kanwal are highly addictive. We really cannot find a fault with this track, its a really well produced track, great lyrics, nice video concept. When it comes to music knowledge and expertise, there are few that can match Tigerstyle. They have constantly adapted and developed their sounds over the years and are not afraid to experiment with new sounds regardless of how it affects their ‘sales’ and image.
