This week a very on-brand tune from the self proclaimed prince of bhangra, Jazzy B. The beyond segment includes a collaboration with the mighty Asian Dub Foundation and Chillian-French hip-hop phenomena, Ana Tijoux.
In a world of rapid one-off single deployment, Diljit Dosanjh releases an old-fashioned full length EP. DJ Rekha selects three of their favorite tracks, and does a side by side comparison of Sukshinder Shinda’s classic tune with his updated version released a mere 17 years later. Plus desi drum and bass and breakbeat vibes in the beyond segment.
DJ Rekha is DJ, curator, educator, and activist. Named ambassador of bhangra by the New York Times, she has been instrumental in placing bhangra on the map in North America. Rooted in bhangra and hip-hop her DJ sets range from Brazilian Baile Funk to Balkan Beats and everything in between. She is founder and resident of Basement Bhangra one NYC’s longest running dance parties. This week Rekha pays tribute to Whitney Houston in a special Desi fashion.
