The man is on fire, his back and fourth to India more times than Harjap Bhangal, the man we are talking about is Dj Frenzy, numerous gigs in India and a fan base that is growing daily, yet he took time out of his busy schedule to give us down low on his latest release, Nishani feat. Surjit Bindrakhia.
We all love Bindrakhia, but what made you think, yes this is what I will release next?
I’ve been working on #BindrakhiaFrenzy since October 2016. It was something that I wanted to release back then as a tribute for Surjit Bindrakhia’s 10 year death anniversary, but one month to work on the mix wasn’t enough – I wasn’t happy with how it was sounding. I didn’t want to put something out for the sake of it, so I held the project back and carried on working on it over the coming months. As time went by, I came up with new concepts and more & more ideas. By the end of 2017, I think I had around 6/7 different segments that I was really happy with – but this created a dilemma for me. I didn’t want the intricacies of each segment to be lost by putting them all in one mix, so this is when I decided to create full individual mixes for each segment. Bindrakhia, for me, was one of the greatest singers to have ever lived and I wanted to do justice to this project and perhaps even introduce him to a new audience.
Bindrakhia, as you have said is one of the greatest Punjabi vocalists to ever live, so why not give us your top 5 Bindrakhia tunes?
Haha, that’s going to give away my whole project of forthcoming Bindrakhia mixes if I tell you that! I’ll introduce you all to a new song with every release from the #BindrakhiaFrenzy series, so hopefully then you will go back and check out other tracks from the same album/period too 🙂
