BIK I AM, the third full length (LP) album from New York’s very own and internationally renowned Bhangra artist, Bikram Singh, is set to be released on November 24th, 2011.
Since the release of Singh’s first mixtape Exclusives in 2004, Bikram has released two highly acclaimed full length albums American Jugni (Vip Records/Universal Music India) and Tip Top (Vip Urban/Angel Records), toured the world, collaborated with mainstream artists including Das Racist, Bellringer, and Wyclef Jean. Bikram Singh’s music has also been featured in Hollywood films, TV shows and numerous music compilations. Once again, Bikram pens most of the songs on BIK I AM with assistance from Raj & Pops (Tigerstyle), a clear manifestation of collaborative effort in the creation of this new body of work.
Tigerstyle reengaged on BIK I AM as 9 of 14 tracks are produced by the Scottish music production Duo. Other producers on the album include Canada’s PropheC, New Jersey’s Ranbir S., London’s Mentor Beats, Twin Beats, and DDS (E-Camp Productions). Vocal collaborations include Premi Johal (O’ Tina O’ Tina), Bellringer, PropheC, Jyoti Gill, and a New York hip hop artist Pramanik.
We have taken our time with this one, explains Mr. Singh, the lyrics are fresh, the production is outstanding, and it’s a fusion between the old and the new school. Pops from Tigerstyle seemed to be very pleased in working with Mr. Singh, Bikram and Tigerstyle have an amazing working relationship, we write and compose lyrics together and essentially it’s an amazing vibe in the studio. The album is set to be released on Soldier Sound Recordings, in UK and Europe, Inar Records in America, and Sony BMG in India.
BIK I AM includes two hit singles Beyonce and Kinna Sohna Munda which are currently on heavy rotations on radio stations worldwide, further singles including remixes will follow in the coming months.
