The much-anticipated sequel to ‘The Lick’ is out now Worldwide. The album is available in all Asian record stores. This is only the Second Album offering from Surinder Rattan so rightly called the lick 2.
Hailing from the streets of Manchester, Surinder Rattan first came to the attention of many when he released the influential ‘The Lick’ and delivered the ground-shaking tracks ‘Tappe ’ and ‘Pyar Tu Nibhana.’ Surinder also had success with ‘From the Mind EP’ in 2002, with his track entitled ‘Kala Kala Munda’ Feat the return of Cheshire Cat becoming the track for the year. Since then he has been busy spending a considerable amount of time and effort on various projects for artists belgoing to the Moviebox camp and various mainstream projects for Warner music and Universal.
‘Tappe’ from ‘The Lick’ was and still is widely regarded as a pioneering track. It started a mass new wave of interest for thousands if not millions of people into this genre of music in the year 1999, And started a worldwide music craze in blending together the unique sounds of Bhangra and Two Step Garage. Surinder's ‘The Lick’ launched Metz as the first Asian two-step Garage MC on a Bhangra release and gave a break and debut for the famous RDB brothers. Surinder Rattan is said to be one of the best producers around supporting classical training from his Ustads ‘Babbar & Javed Niazi Khan’ sons of Ustad Tufail Niazi Khan the prominent Punjabi/Pakistani folk legend.
