Sunanda Sharma – Jaani Tera Naa

 

Sunanda Sharma returned to the music scene with a bang. Jaani Tera Naa is an amazing track produced by Sukh-E Muzical Doctorz. Sunanda is one of the best female vocalist in the scene today, hands down! She has a different tone and her song selection fits her vocal range and style. Lyrics for the track were written by Jaani. It’s a very catchy track and I particularly like the ‘woah’s she adds at the end of each verse. The video is very different as well. Overall this is a great track.

DJ Dips ft Badal & Roach Killa – Yaaria

 

Dj Dips released his long awaited track ‘Yaaria’ featuring Badal Talwan and Roach Killa. From hearing the promo he posted on Instagram to the sneak preview he added with his mixtape, I could tell this was going to be a big track; and I was correct. The whole track has that fresh vibe going on with it. Badal Talwan is an amazing singer and I’m really surprised how he is not featured with other producers on their singles or albums. Roach Killa’s flow and deliver is impeccable; adding that unique style only he is known for. The production on this is banging; there is only one word to describe it. It sounds good on any sound system! Really glad he finally released the track and can only hope he now releases the other Badal track that we’ve heard as well :)  Check out the video below and click here to purchase your copy!

GS Chaggar – Play Dance Listen (EP) 

 

GS Chaggar released his latest musical offering in the form of Play Dance Listen, an EP featuring Bill Singh, Ashok Gill and Pammi Saini. The 4 track EP had a good mix of styles and music. It starts off with a modern twist on the classic Surjit Bindrakhia track Yaar Bolda. It was sung by the talented Bill Singh. It is a great track, production is on point and Bill Singh delivers a great vocal performance. The next track is my favourite from the EP – UK Baliye sung by Pammi Saini. It is a very catchy track, great lyrics and the production perfectly compliments Pammi’s vocals. Nachna Nu by Ashok Gill is up next. This is a nice track and shows the diversity in GS Chaggars production. Things are switched up for the last track, Hik Vich Jaan sung by Bill Singh. I liked the algozey pieces throughout the track. Overall this is a great EP, with some really well produced and diverse tracks.

Bups Saggu – Black Magic

 

Bups Saggu released his vocal debut single titled Black Magic alongside Stylish Singh. It was a bold move from the producer / songwriter / DJ but one that i think worked out well. Its a catchy urban track; easy on the lyrics and the production reflected the style / sound Bups was going for. The verses are fresh and catchy. It’s overall a really good performance, especially for a debut vocal track and quite different compared to others that have tried. Check out the video below:

Jaz Dhami & Raftaar ft Deep Kalsi – Jean Teri

 

Jean Teri was the new track by Jaz Dhami featuring Raftaar produced by Deep Kalsi, who also wrote the track. This is a great track and one that fits Jaz Dhami’s style perfectly. It is a really catchy number, and everything just fits in well with this. Raftaar’s rap is on point as always and gives the track that extra kick. The boli towards the end by Deep Kalsi is my favourite bit. Check out the video below now:

Zora Randhawa ft Dr Zeus – Dangey

 

Zora Randhawa and Dr Zeus teamed up once again to release Dangey. After a short wait, the duo came back with the amazing track Dangey. It is always great to hear Zora’s vocals and the production by Zeus was phenomenal. His sound is frequently copied, however he manages to switch it up every time. The lyrics for the track were written by Kamal Kharoud. I liked the switch up towards the end of the track. Check it out below now:

Jaz Dhami & Kanika Kapoor ft Tigerstyle – Kurti Mal Mal Di

 

There is always a risk when releasing cover songs, especially ones that are so well known. Kurti Mal Mal Di was originally sung by Mohammad Sadiq and Ranjit Kaur with the lyrics written by Didar Sandhu. This particular cover by Jaz Dhami features the vocals of Kanika Kapoor and rap by Shortie. The music duties were given to Tigerstyle, who bring their unique flavour to the mix. I really like this mix, both vocals sound great and compliment each other nicely. Check out the funky video below:

Diljit Dosanjh ft Tru Skool – El Sueño

 

El Sueño was the new track by Diljit Dosanjh produced by UK’s Tru Skool. Lyrics were written by Lally Mundi. El Sueño broke records by debuting in the mainstream charts as well as reaching Number 1 in various iTunes chart listings. The video to this was amazing; and in my opinion has set the standard that all videos need to be at. The track is influenced by Spanish music as you can tell by the name and musical pieces. Tru Skool blended the various styles and influences and the way he delivered the track was remarkable . The musical pieces and percussion mixed in perfectly. A great track and could potentially be a contender for track of the year. Check out the video below now:

Resham Singh Anmol – Munda Pyar Karda 

 

Munda Pyar Karda was the latest track by Resham Singh Anmol produced by Gupz Sehra and released via T Series records. Gupz Sehra is one of our favourite producers; his delivery over the last couple of years has been incredible. This is one of our favourite Resham Singh Anmol tracks too; the composition, music and vocals all were on point. Simar Kaur’s addition was a pleasant surprise and she added another level to the track. Check out the video below now:

DJ Reminisce ft Aman Sandhu – Jaan

 

DJ Reminisce released his track featuring Aman Sandhu titled Jaan. This was a track that came about after SoE distributed the vocals to Jaan to give inspiring producers a chance to show what they were made off. DJ Reminisce gave his take on what the track should sound like with lounge-vibe. I liked this track; its not over produced, hasn’t got any unnecessary samples or rapping etc. Check it out below now:

Truck Union was the new track by Surjit Khan produced by Ravi RBS. Lyrics were written by King Grewal and the track was released via Headliner Records. Surjit delivers another great track with Truck Union; his vocals are one of the best in the industry. The production is fitting; I particularly like the musical pieces throughout the track.
