Chakdey.Com heads north of the border with Bobby B!
1. Introduce yourself…
I’m Bobby from Gtown Desi and one of the 5 members that make up the group. We come in different shapes and sizes! We all have varying musical backgrounds and influences, but we somehow randomly crossed paths a few years back and that’s how Gtown Desi was born.
2. Why did you get into making music?
I think it was probably the same for me and many of the other members as we never really planned on making music initially. Our love for listening to it evolved into DJing, then moved into the nightclub circuit and playing various summer residences in the likes of Spain, Greece, Cyprus, etc. Next it was presenting radio shows and finally we ended up creating the Gtown Desi Roadshow. The natural progression to this was to start producing mixes and beats of our own.
3. What do you think makes GTown Desi different?
Having 5 individuals with different musical interests, our sound could only even be a mash up of various genres we’re into. We believe in sticking to our unique sound and not compromising it to fit a selected market. Our first album (11:34, released on VIP Records in 2010) was the evidence of this, and our future projects will all be showcasing different sounds.
4. What’s your favourite track right now?
“Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke is doing it for me at the moment.
5. What’s your upcoming release?
“Hatt Pichay” feat. Ashok Gill & Sarvjeet Kaur has just been released on Solider Sound Recordings. Our next single is titled “Majajne Hatt Ja” and will feature vocalists from both the UK & India but that’s all we’re revealing at the moment!
