‘Homegrown’ was one of the biggest Bhangra albums of 2009 and has gained PBN a Best Producer nomination at the UK Asian Music Awards and more recently nominations for Best Producer and Best Album at the inaugural Brit Asia Music Awards.
Hoping to continue his track record of producing smash hits, PBN has been busy working on his forthcoming album – ‘Crowd Pleaser’.
Giving Bhangra fans a taster of what to expect from the album, PBN is ready to release the first single which is set to be another dancefloor pleaser by the Hitmaker. ‘Kaun Nee Jaandah’ brings together the productions skills of the hitmaker with the distinguishable vocals of Daljit Mattu and immense dhol beats courtesy of The Dhol Foundation (TDF) for this huge feel good Panjabi track.
Speaking about the track and working with The Dhol Foundation, PBN says:
"Working with TDF was a long time ambition of mine. There is no doubting that they are by far the leading and most renowned Dhol group in the world. ‘Kaun Nee Jaandah’ represents who we are whilst still holding on to what TDF and myself represent.... Bhangra! If you’re a fan of big drums and the dancefloor then you’ll soon become a fan of ‘Kaun Nee Jaandah’. I really hope you guys enjoy this track as much as I did recording it."
Taking the raw energy and adrenaline of TDF dhols and combining it with feel good lyrics and PBNs infectious melodies, ‘Kaun Nee Jaandah’ is a huge Panjabi anthem.
Johnny Kalsi, The Dhol Foundation:
“To work with PBN on the track felt very natural for The Dhol Foundation and it was a pleasure to be in the presence of great talent. The significance of the song for Panjabis all over the planet is about keeping them in touch with their heritage. The song brings a new light and freshness to Bhangra audiences.”
Music lovers will be pleased to know that they don’t have to wait for ‘Crowd Pleaser’ to get their hands on ‘Kaun Nee Jaandah’. PBN will be releasing the single for digital download this April, prior to the album release in May.
