5.0 out of 5 stars Bhangra going mainstream..., 12 Jun 2003
By 
This review is from: The Album (Audio CD)
Bhangra versus the english charts! Now thats something many people didnt think they'd see. The blend of Bhangra beats of the dhol and tumbhi cleaverly mastered to take effect with the sweet sound of rnb, produced by the coventry based artist Panjabi MC has most definently caused a storm amongst music lovers.
This album consists of many old tracks which have been mastered on the decks and brought in line with the fast changing music scene of today. Most the songs on this album had been released in 1997, on the album Legalised, which was distrubuted amonsgt asian music retail outlets. But the recognition which has been well overdue has finally been pushed as far as to a place in the charts top ten with his single Mundian To Bach Ke has opened the door for many other bhangra artists.
Artsist such as Rischi Rich, MC Metz, Bally Sagoo are now finnaly also being recognised in the music industry. For a time when you would walk into highstreet shops such as HMV and find english music, to now see a section totally designated to Desi Beats, is an achievement for all.
The style in which Panjabi MC has worked, with reference to his music, stands clear and loud. Its a taste of new and fresh bhangra, and a mix of the the old with the new. The lyrics carry an indepth meaning but so does the beat, the music, the melody which brings to life the essence of the music.
