Offlicence are a Urban Desi Bhangra collective based in the
In 2007 Offlicence claimed the Number One spot on the BBC Asian Network Charts with the song “Jaan Panjabi” — co-written and produced by Bhangra Hit Maker ‘Panjabi by Nature’ — and haven’t looked back since.
2008 looks to be no different with the release of their debut album “Desilution”.
Offlicence have been working together for a number of years now, experimenting with different sounds and musical genres to create this 17 track album. Their uniqueness resides in their various cultural backgrounds which are reflected in their truly original style.
DESILUTION features collaborations with some of the biggest names in Bhangra – Apache Indian, Panjabi By Nature, Meet Malkit, Cheshire Cat, and the legendary song writer “Swaran Sivia” who has written songs for the likes of Chamkila, Jazzy B, Balkar Sidhu, Malkit Singh and Romey Gill to name a few. Offlicence don’t believe in album fillers either, each track on this album represents a different side of their creative ability.
