It is no secret that today good Bhangra mixes are few and far
between, unlike years past. So it is somewhat exciting for a
new Bhangra CD to appear in my mail box from Desiclub.com. This
time it was Badd Boy Bhangra by Planet DJ Productions, offering
two solid twenty minute mixes and three exclusive remixes.
At first glance I was somewhat disappointed as the CD only listed
five tracks in total. But my disappointment quickly evaporated
after popping the album into the CD player. Seriously, it has been
a long time since I've heard a twenty minute Bhangra mix that A)
kept me entertained and B) was mixed flawlessly. Mix one entitled Bad Boy Bhangra featured fourteen samples of bumpin bhangra excitement followed by mix two featuring another
fourteen samples. I immediately ripped this album to my iPod as I
ran off to the gym, I was in Bhangra heaven.
This is one album that really gets your heart pounding on the tread
mill. Planet DJ Productions should market this CD as a work out
album because it really makes you want to move. Beyond the mixes
they feature a very unique remix of the now infamous Mundian Tho
Bachke that at first had me scratching my head, but it grew on me.
They followed with an interesting track that I really have not been
able to figure out yet though I like it and a really cool dhol
sample. Overall regardless if you are a hardcore Bhangra head or
just a casual fan this is a must have addition to your iPod for 2009!
