Brangha tunes?

dj_soo 6:46 AM - 4 December, 2013
Hey guys, I have a gig coming up and they want me to play all brangha - can you give me a playlist?


Actually, did a party the other night and the demographic turned out to be very East Indian.

It's there I realized the only brangha tune I had was beware the boys. We have a pretty large East Indian population in my city and I'm surprised this hasn't come up as much before.

Any artist suggestions? Would love to grab a few of these tunes and play around with em and learn em just so I can do a bit of a "brown music" set if I have to.

Actually dig the beats quite a bit too...

Probably grab a couple "best ofs" from itunes, but if someone knows of some good artists that aren't panjabi MC, I'd love to check em out.

I like to keep a few Desi beats on hand, so I get a lot of clues from the BBC Asian Network chart. They cover the traditional Bollywood-soundtrack kinda vibes, and the more contemporary sounding hip-hop/R&B influenced stuff.

Obviously it's a UK station but it's very international music we're talking about so if guess it would come in useful for anywhere.

I have some old AV8 vinyl with "Bhangra Breaks" and a few of them are dope. This one is my favorite:
