As an Artist, a sense of responsibilty against your listeners, your society, your fellow beings comes naturaly. Very few artists today realize and feel this but the one who does is true to his art.
Harry Cheema, a producer and rapper from Chandigarh speaks about the bitter truths of reality and asks the so called “men”
Are they really serving the purpose of why God made them? Instead of being a savior, he is constantly finding ways to tear her clothes apart. Be it with his hands or his eyes.
Harry Cheema talks about the pain that females have to go through, and what they have to bear for rest of their lives. He is one of the few artists to understand their responsibility and raise a voice.

These songs were for Prabuddh, since Prabuddh is shelved now and i didn’t wanted to waste any of my lyrics so I decided to record them for Buddhiheen 2 . All of these songs are based on some portions of my life. Also, In the first song Behter, I asked Mumbai’s Dee MC to do the hook and she agreed, she sang marvelously. S/O Niyati for the voice clip. Also Thanks to Bahwee & Eric kuhn for letting me use their Instrumentals, S/O Anuj Rajoria for the Album Cover, Thank you DRS for the unlimited support! “

Delhi Hip-Hop veteran Keepsake drops his brand new single. Its called “Khwaish”, produced by Kunal Kaushal. As per Keepsake, this is the most commercial sounding track he has made till now. Here is what he had to say about the track:
“Khwaish is one of those tracks which i would describe as commercial, although i’ve recorded too many love tracks but i think this track stands out. It’s an ode too my favorite poet Mirza Ghalib, in my way. With B-E-A-Utiful production by Kunal Kaushal. Kunal and I were in same school, we know each other since the beginning of what we are doing. We both wanted to work together for so long. We’ve got a very positive response for this track. So I think we are going to do some more work together in future.
Kunal’s style of producing is full on commercial, Me, as all know hardcore underground. So we thought to mix the two and the outcome is on your speakers.”

“I am very happy to announce that the Music Video for Dreams is finally out. I have been working on this track since an year and I am glad it has come out Satisfactory. Music Video is done by Romi Kahlon and has done a good job on that. The Video is not that flashy but has kept very simple keeping the Music and the Song on the upper side of the complete project.
I have kept the title of the song as Dreams, as this is something which i have talked about in my song a lot and love talking about it offline. The Lyrics of the song are inspiring and may touch a heart or two.
I really want to thank Sajeel Kapoor a.k.a Sez who has done the Music for the song and for all the effort and support so far and keeping all patience with me during the course as the project wasnt that easy for me to complete while working in a IT company to support my music and my family.”

Sound OK Beats is a producer only project, consisting of Sez, Smokey the Ghost, Stunnah Beatz, Surya Sritharan, Earthgrime, Rjv Ernesto and ViV3K.
This is the first beat tape release, titled “Sound OK Beats Vol. 1″. The mixtape contains 8 tracks produced by different producers. Each one adding their own flavor to it.
This is what Nasir had to say, when we spoke to him about the project:
“Initiative started/taken at around May, all the producers chipped out a beat each. After a whole lot of delays and inactive patches, we finally put it out on 15th of September. The aim of us is to try and exercise as much liberty as possible in the production aspect and give a collective Bonobo or Pretty Lights type of output. Something that wouldn’t need words. The producers stepped in and it was coincidentally such that we had a variety already. I mean, all of us 8 were totally different in what we did. No 2 of us sounded the same. If you ask us, yes, we also wouldn’t refrain to be the Indian Anno Domini but the primary target would still be that of being a parallel entertainment center against the dearly hated Bollywood counterpart and IF possible, just grab the attention of the lost generation of ours to better thangs. Often I am attributed with being the founder of this, though, I feel everybody found it, because I alone can’t even find my fucking movie folder”
Delhi based Hindi Hip-Hop artist “Roopak” drops his new single called “Assal”. The beat is produced by OneTone and Mixed/Mastered by SEZ.
Here is what Roopak had to say about the track:
“This song is me. It served as a means to discuss something as easy as changing your mind over an incident in your life or a mere comment by the not so friendly people. The trip is to keep at it, changes will show themselves everyday. The moment you think you realized what real/right is, this life surprises you so hard, you can only smile back. The reality so as to speak is that change is constant, whoever or whatever comes and changes your perspective on something becomes the latest truth.
The rest is history. Be open to change, that’s what being real is. Failing to do so will only make you mad.”

KeepSake has recently dropped another single. The track is called “Thodi Der Aur”. He talks about daily life struggles in the life of a struggling artist. Here is what he had to say when we spoke to him about the track:
“The idea of ‘Thodi der aur’ came into my mind when i was at home unemployed, between may – June 2014. I was looking for a job and recording simultaneously. I was giving interviews one after another getting rejected. Broke as shit. So i had to vent it out. While surfing the net i came across this mind blowing producer ‘Equalibrum’ and i downloaded his Beat tape. The beat that i used was so perfect for me and for my voice. So i was like, what the hell. Let’s give it try, and i recorded it. I am happy that everyone is accepting this side of KeepSake as well. J. Hind shared it on twitter. That made my day, he tweeted ‘Love hearing underground desi hip hop music thriving’. Feels good when some like J hind says that. One last thing i would like to tell my people that i won’t be releasing ‘Prabuddh’ anymore. But Buddhiheen 2 is on it’s way. Much love to all! – PEACE”
