Welcome To The Future’ is arguably one of the most highly anticipated albums of this year. With the UK Bhangra scene going through one of its quietest phases in the last 10 years, this album is set to be the first album of the year to be released by a UK based Asian Music Producer.The project, which has been in the making for over 3 years, was recorded, composed, produced, mixed and mastered by Manni Sandhu.
Making several trips to India, Manni has spent the last 3 years seeking out and working with talented new singers from Punjab, culminating in a fresh sounding album aimed at nurturing new talent and pushing a new sound both in the UK and Asia.The lead single ‘Gani’ has garnered unprecedented attention and created an organic buzz for the album, with ‘Gani’ entering the Top 100 mainstream iTunes chart and going viral online.
The album’s lineup features an array of talented new singers; Akhil (of ‘Khaab’ fame, which has achieved over 15 million views in 3.5 months), Jordan Sandhu (who saw much success in the UK with his preceding singles ‘Muchh Phut Gabhru’ and ‘Bebe Di Pasand’), Diljaan (who was runner up in the Primetime TV show ‘Sur Kshetra’ – a hugely successful talent show which headed up talent from both India and Pakistan) and many more.‘
Welcome To The Future’, Manni’s second official album, follows on from 2012’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘My Time’.‘My Time’ was a hugely successful album containing widely popular songs such as ‘Door Ni Kulne’ and ‘Sona’. It was also one of the first albums, which, upon release, had 7 of its songs debut on the BBC Asian Network Download Chart.
