The time has come and the wait is over for the Bhangra album of 2010. PBN releases his fifth album ‘Crowd Pleaser’ on Limitless Records!
He’s delivered hit after hit and has an unfailing record for putting out huge crowd-pleasing tracks featuring the very best of international and home-grown talent. His latest offerings, the chart topping ‘Kaun Nee Jaandah’ featuring The Dhol Foundation and the recent collaboration with H-Dhami ‘Gereh Kad Dee’ have Bhangra fans eagerly awaiting the new album. Immensely positive reactions by audiences and the industry to exclusive radio previews of the album have set ‘Crowd Pleaser’ up to be another hit album.
PBN shows off his versatility behind the production desk with a real mix of tracks for all audiences on the new album. There’s the pure desi offerings; ‘Kaun Nee Jaandah’, ‘Gereh Kad Dee’ and ‘Kaun Nachdi’ which is sung by PBN himself!
Taking things back to the old skool, PBN had the pleasure of working with legendary UK Bhangra band Heera. ‘Lak Hilda’ is a nostalgic number that will transport you back to the 80’s with its traditional melodies and live music feel.
Then there’s something for the ladies to party to with ‘Boli’ featuring the popular Miss Pooja. A dance floor number with a traditional giddah beat and catchy chorus. PBN decided to experiment and do a really unexpected remix and collaborated with the UK Garage pioneer MC Neat. The ‘Boli Remix’ sees PBN step out of his more common Bhangra production style to mainstream dance, successfully fusing Miss Pooja’s Panjabi vocals with bassline and MCing.
Not forgetting something for those that enjoy easy listening tracks and something to chill out to, PBN brings back the much loved Master Rakesh on ‘Hai Soniyeh’ for a smooth RnB style track which perfectly compliments the talented singers voice. Liyakat Ali lends his vocals to a sentimental number ‘Pyaar’ with live drums and a pleasant acoustic feel.
With 8 tracks, exciting collaborations, experimentation of genres and of course PBN’s undeniable ability to manipulate and create unforgettable beats and melodies, ‘Crowd Pleaser’ is set to be pleasing crowds for a long time.
