If kuduro thirst for new stuff seems hard to quench like Guillaume exposed in the last post, bhangra is well alive no matter what's going on the international hipster scene.
Two labels are taking care of things right now, Vip and Bazaar Records.
Just last week, Vip has released 3 albums, one of them being Blitzkrieg "The Rhyme Book", debut from an Indian MC who have collaborated with Tigerstyle, Bikram Singh and Punjabi Hit Squad. Check the promo video >>>
On the latest CISM show I played two tracks from recent Vip releases, Jags Klimax and Specialist & Tru-Skool. Jags Klimax is one of UK top bhangra DJ/Producer and his original production style have make lots of artists from around the world asked him for remix. The highlight on "The Album" is the track "Heer" featuring the Punjabi folkstress Sarbjit Kaur>>>

"Repazent" from the duo Specialist & Tru-Skool was very awaited after their debut "Word is Born". In fact it's a very good Western influence album, here's the track with the James Brown sample >>>

Tru-Skool is also the producer behind the first hyped Bazaar records release "Raw as Folk". The album features Bazaar own vocalists, Kaka Bhaniawala, Kulwinder Johal, Gurbhej Brar and Dippa Dosanjh (Satrang), all together on the massive "Raw as Folk Bolian" >>>
Apart of those two label releases, one discovery I made is Dalvinder Singh. I very like songs I hearded from his new album "Udeeka". Here's the one I played in last radio show>>>
