Almost 3 years ago, we enjoyed the album 'Dhol Blasters Forever' which featured many including Sarabjit Kaur, Daljit Mattu and Kamaljit Sidhu.
SimplyBhangra.com can now exclusively reveal that the brand new album, 'AKH MATACKA" which has 11 Tracks with an additional 4 remixed tracks will be releasing soon.
The King himself, Gurcharan Mall, stated when we had a chat with him, "Working together to promote Bhangra Arts and Culture the right way, is something that I will always be pushing for and ensuring the youngsters out there feel and enjoy the true Bhangra music."
The King of UK Bhangra music, the legendary Gurcharan Mall returns with a brand new album titled; ‘Akh Matacka’ releasing October 31st. The brand new 14 track album masterminded by Gurcharan Mall features a brand new sound from the Bhangra legend.
‘Akh Matacka’ also sees two of the most experienced members of the UK Bhangra fraternity combining forces. ‘Tubsy Records’ is the brainchild of percussionist and musical maestro ‘Tubsy’ who brought you licks on legendary hits such as ‘Dhola Veh Dhola’ & Arranged Marriage’ to name a few.
‘Akh Matacka’ will be the first release from the new label, that promises to show the future of UK Bhangra what the past has to offer!
“This is the album to kick start your celebrations for Autumn 2008 and lead you into a brand new 2009” Tubsy.
Gurcharan Mall is often described as one of the most influential figures in UK Bhangra. As one of the original founders and contributors to the UK Bhangra scene during the late 70’s and early 80’s. Over the years he has had an input in recording and producing up to 44 albums, although now Gurcharan Mall is keen to offer music in a whole new direction.
The album ‘Akh Matacka’ heralds a new beginning for Gurcharan Mall as he moves away from the Dhol Blasters sound that has become so synonymous with his name in the past. Instead Gurcharan Mall has worked with producers from both UK and India to try and instil a fresh approach to his music, certain to turn ‘Akh Matacka’ into a global hit!
The album will be supported by two videos, the video for ‘Akh Matacka’ is currently playing on Brit Asia TV (833) and it features special guest appearances from some of the biggest names in UK Bhangra.
