Bhangra Bootay!

mARKYbOY- 'The Message of Dhoom' or:

mARKYbOY - 'Deepur and Deepur' or:

Do you remember your first Vaisakhi festival? The stringed pizzicato of the iktar coupled with the glissando of the tumbi had the Punjabis whirling. Throw in the beats of the dohl and the chimta and, well, you have one helluva party. One need not be Indo-Aryan, Himachal Pradeshian, or even New Dhelian. The Uttar Predesh tones emanate from Southern UK with mARKYBOY, the dulcet vox and beat box groove of Himachal Pradesh is actually from Newport, UK thanks to Oscar TG, and you would think Prime Minister Gulzarilal Nanda commissioned DJ Useo to make all of Michigan twist their sepia booties all night long to a lilting female temptress call. Just yesterday, the Toronto paper shouted Malkit Singh is no longer the golden voice of the Punjab — Maxwell Jump is. Not only do the Eastern Asian youth find RebornIdentity with the bhangra sound, but the cats in Manchester do as well. Missy Eliot may have introduced the bell-toned beats to the 2000s America, but Bobby Martini made it a seeming mandate from Priest King Mohenjo-daro. And, after listening to this comp, if Eamezy and neiltomo do not have their Ph.Ds (Producers of Hott Dub) from Guru Nanak Dev University, then the Sindhis have every right to rebel. Whether your dance of choice is the Luddi, Giddha, Julli, Daankara,or Dhamal, Guv’nor , Mr. Rusty, and mattbland provide the nonstop toe-to-palming and ass-shakin’ . So, imagine DJ Spider wearing his traditional Jugi as he spins those eclectic beats, and Sfreeman41 holding his Malwai Giddha in one hand while hitting an 808 with the left as you take a culturally diverse quest to find the Farsi fusion. As they say in all Punjabi regions, “Makaharsi albretkita, Ross.” Thanks for the Movement.

Honey is the Drug

Hi guys

The latest tune uses a loop cut from Roxy Music's 'Love is the Drug' (cut and produced by Neil over at Atomix Extended Cuts), I've laid vocals from The Four Tops 'Honey Bunch' under this and they seem to work very well together.

True Love Never Stood Still

Hey Peeps!

A new tune from me which takes a downtempo turn from my last few posts. This tune uses Madonna's 'Time Stood Still' instrumental under Donna Williams' vocals from 'True Love Never Dies'. It takes a disco classic and turns it into something much more smooth!

Download here:

Relax, It's In Your Eyes

Hi Guys

This is the 'sister' tune to my last post and as camp as Christmas. They started life as the same tune a couple of nights ago and soon went their separate ways. Again a real poppy/dancey tune with the mental and pella working well together IMO. It should manage to get a couple of booties on the dancefloor !!

Relax, It's In Your Eyes

Get It Together or Walk On By

Hey All

A new tune for today, simple but effective me thinks! It takes a loop from Jurassic 5's 'Get it Together' and uses Sybil's vocals from 'Walk On By' over the top. Nothing earth shattering, just classy soul vocal updated with a stomping RnB mental.

Download it here:
