After having produced several Bhangra singles, K-Singh now presents to you a different genre which reveals his versatility within producing - an instrumental of ‘Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai’ from the Bollywood film ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’.
To date, K-Singh has produced several Bhangra singles featuring newcomers as well as established singers.
In 2010 K-Singh teamed up with internationally-acclaimed songwriter, Amrit Saab and Jaswinder Daghamia who provided phenomenal vocals and delivered the product entitled ‘Shera Vargeh’.
In 2011, K-Singh brought to the table a new up-and-coming vocalist, who goes by the name of Lovely Singh. Almost immediately, a radiant working relationship occurred and K-Singh then made plans for his forthcoming single, featuring the new vocalist. K-Singh made his return by featuring Lovely Singh on his single and brought ‘Naal Nachi Tu’ in early 2012.
We caught up with him to see what he has been up to and what's coming up!
What is your style of production? What beats and sounds are signature to you?
My style of production is predominantly dancefloor based. Personally I love dancefloor tracks – English, bollywood or bhangra – and my releases reflect this.
As a signature, I’d say the “vaja” (harmonium) is a sound that people can identify my music by. I use it in almost every song, where appropriate, as it is an instrument that’s very close to me. It is an instrument I grew up with, and I’d say it’s the foundations of learning theoretical music, so it reminds me of my childhood days whilst I was learning music.
Who have you worked with?
My releases to date (in chronological order):
Jaswinder Daghamia – Shera Vargeh
Lovely Singh – Naal Nachi Tu
Nirmal Sidhu – Jatt Ludhiane Da
Foji & Sudesh Kumari – Whatever
Nav Sidhu – Sharaab Wargi
I have also worked with S Klass & Jazz Sahota, along with some newcomers. These tracks are all scheduled to release within the next few months.
How has your dj business enhanced your passion for music?
As a DJ, I am not restricted to listening to just one type of genre or one specific artist, and being up-to-date with and entertaining my clients with a variety of genres such as bhangra, bollywood and R’N’B means I can identify what songs work well on the dancefloor and what styles work well with the crowd. My speciality is mixing bhangra songs with English instrumental beats, and vice-versa, and my releases reflect this as I’m able to reconstruct similar sounds and beats in my projects. I think it’s fair to say being a producer enhances my DJ business, and being a DJ enhances my production business!
Why introduce yourself to Bollywood?
One of my favourite instruments is the piano. Never officially learnt, but self-taught. I love the calm and melodious sound, and also its versatility – it can be used for any song, almost in any way!
When practising the piano, I tend to play a lot of soft melodious love songs – Tujh Mein Rabh Dikhta Hai is a particular favourite. Whilst playing this, a close friend of mine had asked me to record it for them and send it to them. Being a music producer, an initial phone recording just wasn’t good enough for me so I thought i’d record it properly. Whilst I was recording, I thought I’d make a beat for it aswell. One thing led to another, i kept on working and adding things, and before i knew it, I’d reproduced the whole song which was only supposed to be a small phone recording clip!
I think it’s important to be able to produce a wide range of music, and not limit yourself to one genre. By doing this, I can potentially merge the two styles into one song, creating a unique sound, which I’ve actually done on S Klass’s forthcoming track!
I am constantly working with newcomers, in addition to S Klass and Jazz Sahota, whose projects will be releasing within the next few months.
After the results we’ve had with Nirmal Sidhu’s “Jatt Ludhiane Da” and Nav Sidhu’s “Sharaab Wargi”, there’ll definitely be some more projects in the pipeline with both of them, same with Foji & Sudesh Kumari. I like to build and maintain long-standing relationships, so there’ll definitely be recurring projects from all the artists I have worked with in the past.
In the first quarter of 2013, K-Singh has already worked with Foji presenting a refix of ‘Whatever’, featured on Nirmal Sidhu’s album ‘The Bhangra Star’ with ‘Jatt Ludhiane Da’. Following this, K-Singh worked with Nirmal’s son, Nav Sidhu, on a single entitled ‘Sharaab Wargi’. K-Singh now presents to you a different genre which reveals his versatility within producing. K-Singh’s latest offering is a re-produced instrumental of ‘Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai’ from the Bollywood film ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’.
