It was time for a deep dive into game changer Jasmine Sandlas, with no shortage of bangers. We listen to the depth and range in her catalogue. The beyond set showcases proverbial b-sides and her tracks that were released as vinyl records including a track demonstrating what made her an underground sensation.
In a bhangra world driven by voluminous single releases, Bally Sagoo and G. Sidhu release well thought out full-length albums. Never afraid to switch up her style, Jasmine Sandlas drops a hip-hop hybrid, dropping bars and verses in English and Punjabi. Plus, Brooklyn producer Ayesha, and some Afghani infused beats in the beyond segment.
Jassie Gill drops a much teased playful vowel laden tune with Simar Kaur. The beyond segment includes tracks from the Vancouver based Snakes and Ladders label and their latest release by Protokhal, plus other selections from a Desi infused dance label.
Amrit Maan latest duet with Nimrat Khaira rivals the impact of his earlier monster song with Jasmine Sandlas, Bamb Jatt. Speaking of Jatts, Bups Saggu provides beats for DJ Kam Kang and Manwal with his lasted joint. In the beyond segment, DJ Rekha shares some selections from their programming for New York’s Sona Restaurant slated to open later this month.
With the farmers protest gaining international attention, G. Sidhu’s Kisaan Sun De, is still in heavy rotation. Plus, a seemingly randomized selection of tunes with a high percent of Kaur B in the Bhangra segment and in the beyond set Ali Sethi, Talal Quereshi and more.
Part two of the 2020 round up is very Diljit Dosanjh and Nimrat Khaira forward, with some almost forgotten tunes from earlier in the year. The beyond section revisits stand out tracks from the Krunk Kollective crew, new comers Rashmeet Kaur, Ayesha, and more.
