DJ Tally is an artist that is currently unknown in the Asian music scene, but possesses real potential to become a household name in the very near future. Having already become a seasoned professional Roadshow DJ at the tender age of 19, he has now ventured into production with his first collaboration utilising the universally acclaimed vocalist Nirmal Sidhu.
His debut single, entitled Nakhrah, releases on Silverbak Records, and promises to establish his name on the UK Bhangra scene that is currently in need of fresh young talent. Having learnt the art of playing the Dhol and Tabla at an early age and then moving on and studying music production under his mentor Notorious JATT, DJ Tally shows his solid production skills in his first outing.
As a UK born 4th generation Punjabi, DJ Tally draws inspiration from artists coming from many diverse genres including UK Bhangra, Punjabi Folk, Dancehall, Drum & Bass, Bassline and RnB. Artists whose work he especially looks up to include Harjit Harman, Surjit Bindrakhia, Baljit Malwa, Mickey Finn, Buju Banton and Quincy Jones.
Nakhrah features the explosive vocals of Nirmal Sidhu along with rap from the UK Hip Hop outfit C.O.V (Hoi Hoi, Mere Naseeb, What’s Ma Name). The single is accompanied by a high quality HD video directed by Guvy Heer.
Nakhrah will be officially released worldwide on 26th February 2010 as an exclusive iTunes release, and will hopefully be the first of many great productions from this fresh new talent.
Remember the name DJ Tally because with a debut single showing such talent and potential, one sense’s he can only go from strength to strength in the future as an ambassador for Punjabi music…
