OUT FEBRUARY 26TH VIA iTUNES
Having being brought up in a musical family, K-SINGH had a very strong passion for music. Since the age of 3 he has been learning tabla from some of the most renowned tabla players in the UK - Late Gurmeet Singh Virdee, Harkirat Singh Rayatt (Chakardar Tabla Group) and Pritam Singh (disciple of Ustaad Ajit Singh Mutlashi Ji) to name a few, aswell as his uncle Mandeep Singh Sahota - enabling him to accompany his grandfather, and others, at many gurdwara's across the Midlands and London.
Having learnt how to play the tabla, K-SINGH also picked up the art of playing dhol and dholki very quickly. At the age of 11 he was encouraged to take his 'dhol playing' even further, performing at parties, weddings, school functions and more.
Gradually his interest in other instruments also grew - such as the harmonium (the 'vaja'), keyboard, piano and tumbi - and in a very short space of time, he became a natural at playing instruments he had never learnt before.
K-SINGH had regularly been going along with his uncle, DJ Harvey (Desi Rhythm Roadshow), to various bookings, and it was from here K-SINGH soon developed his taste in Bhangra music, listening to groups such as Safri Boyz, Premi and Apna Sangeet.
At the age of 13, he began to DJ himself and was regularly performing at many family functions.
After a while, K-SINGH took DJ'ing to another level by recording his own beats using the tabla, dhol and dholki, and mixing them live with tracks at his bookings, giving his mixes the unique sound which was popular with everyone.
Gaining immense experience through DJ'ing, K-SINGH decided to combine all his talents together by going into Music Production. At the age of 16 he began to produce many samples and tunes, getting feedback from friends and family, which enabled him to improve on his techniques.
He then invested in setting up his own studio, and took things further, gaining advice and tips from some of the most knowledgeable people in the bhangra industry today, such as Amrit Saab, Baldev Mastana, Juggy Rihal and Mick St Clair to name a few.
At the age of only 18, the year 2008 saw the launch of a multi-talented individual - a producer,
musician and composer in one - when K-SINGH released his debut single 'Pare Ho Ke' featuring the vocals of J.Deep and lyrics by Amrit Saab, on Mick St Clair's record label, Saint Records UK.
‘Pare Ho Ke’ didn’t live up to its expectations and its results were not what K-SINGH had hoped for. He was introduced to Mandeep Kaur and with the amount of experience and knowledge she had in the bhangra industry, she believed that K-SINGH could excel and show the world what he’s really capable of. After having many long discussions about future ideas, he decided to appoint her as manager of ‘K-SINGH Productions’.
Without wasting any time, K-SINGH is back with a smash hit single, titled Shera Vargeh. Under the new management of Mandeep Kaur, he has collaborated with two of bhangra's biggest superstars in one track. With high-powered vocals by Jaswinder Daghamia and lyrics by internationally-acclaimed Amrit Saab, K-SINGH has put together a huge dancefloor anthem, guaranteed to make your jaws drop and your heads bop! So watch out for the imminent release of Shera Vargeh, coming soon under K-SINGH Productions. With a huge smash-hit on its way, strap yourselves in for the best newcomer of 2010.
