With the upcoming release of Panjabi By Nature’s ‘Homegrown’ everyone is expecting an album full of massive Bhangra tracks like ‘Aashiq’ and ‘Dancefloor’, but there’s also a few unexpected surprises in store.
The hit making producer has taken things to another level on this album and decided to switch sides in the studio and step into the vocal booth for an extra special collaboration with Apache Indian.
‘Sohni Lagdi’ is a catchy feel good number which further howcases Panjabi By Nature’s musical talents. Not only does this young music maker play several instruments and produce massive hits, he now reveals a talent for singing.
"This is something that I have wanted to do for a very very long time! Not only collaborating with an icon of the Asian music scene but also on a more personal level, to produce, compose and sing my own track on what is my biggest project to date. Sohni Lagdi is a song which represents pure happy
party vibes. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed making it for you all!" Panjabi By Nature.
As well as making his vocal debut on ‘Sohni Lagdi’, it is also the first time Panjabi By Nature has teamed up with Apache Indian for an ultimate
home-grown production. The combination of Apache Indian’s Reggae tone and Panjabi By Nature’s Bhangra beats and youthful vocals, produces an energetic track that will have people singing along.
Speaking about the collaboration and his appreciation for the producer, Apache Indian says, "I have done a few collabs in my time and I can tell you it was a pleasure to work with PBN, a very talented artist, singer and producer, that works hard to give you the best of what he’s got! It was an honour to be on the album, and it’s definitely one that people should support as it reflects true young talent from the UK Asian scene, the way it should be! Big respects from me, and i’ll definitely be pushing PBN all the way to the top of every chart!!*"
