Sound OK Beats- Sound OK Beats Vol. 1

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

U n Me – Iraj & Sean Kingston Ft. Sonu Kakkar , Janani & Bohemia

 

Sri-Lankan Hip-Hop producer Iraj releases his much anticipated International collaboration “U n Me”. The track has a massive line-up, featuring Sean Kingston, Sonu Kakkar, Janani & None other than the Punjabi Rap Star Bohemia. The track has been a topic of talk even before its release.

Iraj is Sri Lanka’s maestro of hip-hop and the island’s new generation star. Going where no local star has gone before, Iraj has amazed Sri Lanka’s music moguls through his unprecedented climb to the helm of the island’s entertainment industry.

Sonu Kakkar is a versatile singer who has come up a long way in a very short span of time. After listening her full-throated voice sandeep chowta promised to give her an opportunity to sing in his next film.

She made her debut with the film Dum starred Vivek Oberoi and Diya Mirza with the Most Popular Song Of The Year 2003 Babuji Zara Dheere Chalo picturised on Yana Gupta. This ultimate Raunching Dance Number really makes E.Niwas’s Dum eminently worthwhile.

Dedicating nearly his entire life to music and achieving superstardom when he was just 17, Sean Kingston has amassed an untold amount of experience as a singer/songwriter over the years. On his third-full length album Back 2 Life, the 23-year-old builds on that experience by greatly expanding his songwriting role, nixing the multi-producer approach of his last release, and pushing for a fresh new sound. 

Known world-wide as the creator of Punjabi rap, Bohemia is a rapper and a music producer from California. He started his career as a near-novelty, a Desi teenager from California, delivering, hardcore rap music, a style of music which was unheard of at the time. But within a few years he has pretty much reinventing the Desi pop music scene and influenced not only youth to start rhyming Punjabi lyrics to hip-hop beats, but the Bollywood superstars as well.

Bohemia quickly gained popularity with his independent debut album, ‘Vich Pardesan De’ [In the foreign land] hitting Top 10 on BBC Radio UK. The following album, ‘Pesa nasha pyar’ [Money, intoxication, love] became the first full-length Punjabi rap album released by a major label in history. It brought Bohemia increased popularity, including his recent multi-record deal with music mogul Universal Music [2006 – 2009]. This brought his creation of ”Punjabi rap” to mainstream recognition, making Bohemia pioneer of a new genre of music known as ‘Desi-Hip-Hop’ or ‘Desi-rap’.

KeepSake X Sez – Sapno Ki Nagri EP

Sapno Ki Nagri - KeepSake x Sez - Cover Art

SAPNO KI NAGRI EP

Sapno Ki Nagri EP is the first project of the duo Sapno Ki Nagri(KeepSake & Sez).The EP consiting 4 songs is unique as every song is related to each other. It’s a story about hope, passion and freedom; freedom to express and explore new dimensions of human mindset.

Track 1: Shuruaat: The track is the start of our main story, it’s about being unique and doing what you love; not caring about anyone. As we believe that we should not be ashamed of ourselves, we should be proud at what we are doing and what we aim to achieve.

Track 2: Sapno Ka Jahan: The track is about journey of the guy(protagonist of this EP) through the realm of his dreams. How that guy strive to bring happiness to his family to himself and to everyone who support him. It’s about not giving up and moving on.

Track 3: Buddhi: This track is about two sides of the mind, one being dark-egoistic and the other being humble. The protagonist has to choose one, it’s basically about being true to yourself. Suppose we achieve all the fame, would we like to fall for the dark side of fame or we should remain humble and try to help everyone who wish to achieve that? This track potrays same image. Obviously, the protagonist is humble haha.

Track 4: Kahanikaar: Again this track is about not giving up. People try to pressurize you, they don’t want you to acheive what you desire to. It’s a whole nexus of these people and the negativity they have but will you give up? is the pressure so much that you’ll throw away your dreams? Nope, you should go for it..break the nexus and be free.

KeepSake x Sez Ft. Youngsta Ash – Umeed

Umeed-KeepSake

Delhi based Hindi rapper KeepSake drops the new single off his mixtape “Prabuddh”. The track is called “Umeed”. It features Sez on the production and Youngsta Ash on the track. “Prabuddh” is set to release later this year.

This track is a very mellow piece which contains soft laid back beats with a lil’ desi influence of tabla as well. Keepsake plays the role of a normal guy who’s perplexed still trying to make it big in the music that he’s pursuing. Youngsta plays the role of Keepsake’s conscience who tells him to not forget his roots and the people who helped him become what he is in the trail of becoming a musician.

KeepSake is definitely an Emcee to watch out for 2014. He has been impressive consistently with his unique lyricism and flows.
