Originally produced by DJ Limelight ‘Lakh Nu Hilla’ was released earlier this year and features the vocals of UK singer Tasha Tah. SonnyJi has taken the original and created his own fresh production moving the sound into a more deep, funky and bass heavy House sound.
I liked the hook in the song and Tasha’s voice really shines through on it. I wanted to reproduce it from scratch giving the original track another sound which was totally different. House music has always inspired my DJ style and very much does when it comes to me making my own sounds as well. It’s always easier creating a remix when you like something about the original in the first place and with this track I really wanted to venture off somewhere more mysterious but at the same time still keeping the beat jackin and dance floor friendly .
And jack it does, with a sound that is bold and does not ask to fit in, indeed, it leads the way merging Tasha‘s Punjabi vocals over a building pulsating house rhythm throughout.
SonnyJi is an award winning DJ who is used to experimenting having made his name on the BBC Asian Network with his Bhangra Mixtape shows pioneering a multi genre mix style which still continues online today with the East Beatz West mixcast.
Lately he’s been busy in the studio creating new music, so do expect some fresh collaborations with various artists next year as well as a few more remixes before then.
