Tigerstyle & Panjabi MC Album DELAYS!!!

AAAAAAAAAArrrrrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhhh! Exactly, you guessed it, both albums have been further delayed! This is now just taking the piss out of the world wide fans in the Indian Music industry. Tigerstyle's album - Mystics, Martyrs & Maharajas is now delayed until the end of the first week of November 2008, I think!!! There is no exact date given as of yet for the delayed date! We all have been waiting for this album for ages, come on record label, do not let us down... Panjabi MC's Indian Timing album is now delayed until November 17th, 2008, since I have ordered directly from Panjabi MC himself. However, for his album delay, he is throwing the pre-ordered albums some freebies, hopefully a t-shirt or so and some mixes etc... Looking forward to the freebies and the extras.

Panjabi MC's album title hold truth to the Indian Music industry -- Indian Timing, which is never on time, and is hell bent over and taking the piss out of Indian music fans worldwide!

Anyways, just thought I would fill you all in. Until I receive my copies of both these albums, I will do an updated post letting you all know of the albums!

Jay Sean is a Britain singer/songwriter from UK, and has worked with Rishi Rich and Juggy D. in the Indian Music industry, and has just signed onto - get this - Cash Money Records alongside Lil Wayne. I have taken an excerpt from Jay Sean's website with the exclusive news and is below:

The incredible deal sees Cash Money Records licence Jay Sean's recent album 'My Own Way' from Jayded Records for release in America.

He then met the rest of the Cash Money family including Lil Wayne.'This is great news for British black music,' says Billy Grant, MD, from Jay's management company 2Point9.

Indian Music Artists Show/Concert Rates

Just decided to do a post on some Indian Music artists/singers that do live performances around the world here. I have enquired about the industry's most sought after artist - Lehmber Hussainpuri. He charges 5 lakhs Indian rupees ($12,500), plus return airfare from India which is another $2200 plus Visa/Embassy fees probably around $1000. Total cost will be around $15,000! Plus a live band + PA would cost around $2,000 at the bare minimum. I had enquired for a family function. As well, I enquired about Sardara Gill + live band, and DCS + live band. Sardara Gill is around 3600 UK pounds ($7500), and DCS is around the same as well.

The rates I received and quoted for was a family function. Instead I will stick with homeboy, local talent K.S. Makhan who is my Pindu (fellow villager back home in India).

Indian Music's Biggest News Yet - Jazzy Bains & Sukshinder Shinda Update

This just in (actually the news is around 3 weeks old now), from one of my sources, that there is a massive update on the breakthrough massive Indian Music Bhangra idols - Jazzy Bains & Sukshinder Shinda. The both of them are working on 2 projects!!! That's right, not just 1, BUT 2 projects!!! First one is a Religious album which is going to be cultural and will be great, since it has been a while since Jazzy B. released his religious album last. Next, is we can safely say - Collaborations Part 2 featuring Sukshinder Shinda, Jazzy Bains, and none other than Kuldip Manak, Nachhatar Gill & Rahat Fateh Ali Khan... This album will be strictly FOLK MUSIC which is given the utmost respect in the Indian Music industry. In my opinion, will be similar to Sarabjit Cheema's newest album Only Folk. This will be beat bumping insane album for the safekeeping. This second project will definitely be LEGENDARY! Can't wait?!

Delay of Albums in the Indian Music Industry...

The Indian Music industry is on the uprising, however is losing big time points on the delays of the artists albums that are coming out. Indian Music record labels do press releases way in advance for hyping up projects and albums, and by the time the album comes out, it is like 2 years past the original press release date, and the hype of the album has all ready been killed and is over.

Moviebox UK is one of the largest record labels in the Indian Music industry, and is one of the violators of the Indian Music album delays. Case in point, Bally Jagpal & Bhota Jagpal's B21 album, of them two together, has been press released over and over again, and it has been at least 3-4 years of waiting, hearing new material, and then this material gets discarded. Bally Jagpal and Bhota Jagpal are one of the pioneer producers in the Indian Music industry, and deserve the album be released on time and marketed properly. Personally, I am a huge B21 fan of both Bally & Bhota and look forward to their release, although I have waited enough.

Albums should be given press release time with ample marketing opportunity, ONLY & ONLY IF AND when the album has been completed or is close to being completed and near its launch/release date.

Let's bind together, and hope and pray for on time releases in the Indian Music industry...
