Sunday 17th June 2018, was the day that the UK Bhangra scene lost one of it’s most playful characters Gurps Singh aka DJ Gurps.
Reading through timelines and seeing the messages from people about Gurps, we hope you grasp fully how good a person that Gurps was. He always had a smile on his face, and always welcoming, I myself a few years ago spent many a random night with Gurps, he would be DJ’ing in Birmingham over the weekend and the night in between gigs would see us hooking up for a few drinks and shenanigans. We will miss you brother, nothing was ever too serious, always just jokes, and that is what everyone is saying, you played events up and down the country, making peoples big occasions special to them, and that is how you will be remembered by myself, for being special, RIP Brother!
The Industry came out in force to show their love for Gurps yesterday, here are a few messages from those who knew him best.
Broken, lost, numb 💔… lost one my closest brothers. The one that gave me my first experience of this gig life and the rest is history. Always there to help us and go above and beyond to do everything you could to make sure we all grew together. Genuine and the nicest guy I had the pleasure to experience life with. Who am I supposed to drive down the M40 now with listening to Dre with I promise I won’t chuck u out on the motorway again….. cant wait til I see u again and we do this shit again. You have left a big Gap in our lives. May you rest in peace my brother. You will always be in my heart @djgurpsmusic xxx #RabRakha
The videos below were the stand out tunes that I remembered most from Gurps, his playful nature comes across in both videos, enjoy, and remember the man.
