This cut is pretty amazing, blending both INDIAN BHANGRA with modern beats. PANJABI MC has of course been one of the faces of modern Indian music ever since he crossed over to the mainstream with his KNIGHT RIDER single. This is a throwback on a more traditional take in the halfrime bits. Check it:
Your Royal Highness, I just read that the US president, Mr. BARACK OBAMA, has given you an IPOD as a gift at his recent visit to your country. That IPOD was already filled with some footage of your 2007 US trip and some broadway music, and since there is a LOT OF ROOM left on it, here is a gift from GENERATIONBASS. It is a mix of some recent BASS MUSIC, BAILE FUNK and HOUSE music of global descent. I guess you will recognise some influences from some of the former UK colonies (INDIA, JAMAICA) in there as well!
It’s is located RIGHT HERE, and will take up about 165 MB on your IPOD. It’s a 320 KBS MP3. If you don’t really know any of this technical chitchat, you can always ask some advice from the coolest president ever… Since this was recorded at a GENERATIONBASS night, I don’t know what the tracklist is. But it doesnt really matter, when you start dancing, just let your Royal hips do the talking!
-Vince The Prince / Generation Bass

This track is really cool. It’s producer: A.R. RAHMAN is a really big name in INDIA, also producing music for BOLLYWOOD movies etc. AAANNDD…. he just won 2 OSCARS for his music, which means he’s got access to the HOLLYWOOD machine now as well!! Great percussion going on and beautiful vocals. Check it:

Great cut right here with the mighty VYBZ KARTEL, MANGI MAHAL & NIKITTA. A blend of Dancehall and Bhangra, worlds divided by an ocean, brought together by a small internet connection… Welcome to 2009!
