If you are a Bhangra fanatic you are bound to have heard of Dipps Bhamrah. Besides being a Liverpool Footbal Club fan (yaayyy!! YNWA) Dipps is a producer, a presenter with the BBC Asian Network in the United Kingdom, a DJ, a host, amongst many other talents. I’ve been listening to Dipps Bhamrah on The Asian Network every Sunday on Bhangra Breakdown which gives us 2 hours of fantastic Bhangra tracks, interviews, what’s hot and what’s not, and all this served on a platter with Dipps’ inimitable style and panache. His sense of humour is fantastic and his presentation style is oh-so-unique. It’s no wonder he has a huge fan following all over the world and I can testify to this because I listen to him every Sunday!
Not too long ago Dipps unleashed his first ever single Mr Makhna featuring KS Bhamrah. Yes… his Dad! The track is awesome, catchy and danceable. It appeals not only to the Uncles and Aunties on the dancefloor but the entire family all around. The video is fantastic with no half naked women with bottles of booze all over the place. I’ve always wondered what message such videos are giving to our youth anyway!
Mr Makhna has enjoyed great success, love and adulation from fans all over the world, the new ones and the die-hard ones and now Dipps Bhamrah is giving YOU the chance to do something with this track. Yep… that’s right. If you feel you have the know-how and talent, if you feel you want to make your mark with your skills then read on and see how you can be part of this fabulous project launched by Dipps Bhamrah himself. Good luck!!
Dipps Bhamrah – Bhangra Showcase 2011
Following on from the success of ‘Mr Makhna’ the charismatic Bhangra all rounder Dipps Bhamrah embarks on a ground breaking and history in the making first for Bhangra Music
The second album from Dipps Bhamrah entitled ‘Project: BHANGRA’ is set for release later this year, with Spice Media, which has been in production in little under a year. The album features work from Bhangra legends, newcomers and Dipps has decided to open his album up to more unsigned and potential Bhangra acts.
In a first for Bhangra music, Dipps Bhamrah is offering an opportunity to budding unsigned and undiscovered music producers to produce a remix of the track ‘Mr Makhna’ with one successful remix being given an official release on the album Project: BHANGRA in 2011. In presenting this unique opportunity Dipps explains what lead him to this idea.
Dipps – “From the beginning of Project: BHANGRA it has been, what i call, a ‘We’ project rather than a ‘Me’ project as there are so many different, creative and talented elements that come together to produce any album. I also genuinely wanted to do something to showcase new and unsigned talents on this album which so far have come through in the form of singers. As most people probably know by now I am a Bhangra man through and through and am passionate about what UK Bhangra music is about and how successful our genre of music is worldwide. Where possible i like to showcase new and upcoming talents. I now have another opportunity to do that through Project: BHANGRA in giving a spot to a new production talent for an official release.”
Dipps goes on to say why he is offering such a positive platform to new talents.
Dipps – “An album is a very private piece of work for any artist and to offer a space to a complete stranger is either complete madness or inspired. Either way i’m hoping that genuine talents, whether selected or not, shine through and this opportunity will allow fresh music to be heard around the world. Im happy to support and nurture genuine new talent and cant wait to hear what weird and wonderful sounds creative guys and girls come through with”
