Finally, here it is. The heavyweights have slammed back into bhangra,in an attempt to set their stamp early on in this new musical year to claim the top spot back within the industry. The one and only DCS have returned with a massive double CD album as the first of the trendsetters lay down a new offering in 2007. Will this new release set the trail for others to follow for the rest of the year, or will it leave the door open for a new challenger to their bhangra crown?
As the winter months begin to bite us hard, there can be no doubt we are all in need of an explosive new bhangra release to keep things boiling over into the summer months. So what better way could there be to start off 2007 than by taking a delve into the new release from Taj- E- ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears.’ Its time for the talk to end as we finally judge whether this new offering is up to the standard set on ‘Look Again’, Taj- E’s last hit release. Has his blood, sweat and tears really gone into this? Or will we have to look elsewhere for that bhangra winter warmer?

Xplosive Soundz are proud to introduce to you a new talent by the name of Juggy Kang, a 22 year old young man from Huddersfield.
After 4 years of spinning records as a DJ, Juggy turned his talents to producing. With his unhurried yet devoted approach he has created a very unique album keeping the characteristics of bhangra strong, giving you an organic and spontaneous sound.
Juggy has impressively created an 8 track original album incorporating diversity, beautiful and buoyant sounds and pure vocals.
Keeping to the theme of ‘new talent’, we are pleased to introduce a new singer by the name of Ravi Duggal.
At such a young age of 19 he has been blessed with a very powerful voice, which can be heard in all of his 3 tracks on ‘Straight Up’.
Hearing is believing!Other singers on the album include Goga Takhar, Bhagwant Pawar, Jaswinder Patti and Ravinder Malri – all of whom have already appeared on previous albums under the Xplosive Soundz label.
Also featuring is Sharan Gidda, a promising new female singer from Canada.
We feel each listener will find a piece of brilliance in this album and we are confident that it will satisfy ever-hungry bhangra lovers.
Watch out for the video to ‘ADDI’ on ZEE TV and B4U.
TOP NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just got back in now from it. Missed Dalvinder Singhs set, Saw bits & bobs of everyone else's. But big up to the Bands for a BRILLIANT perfromance & aslo to Bobby Friction & Sonia Deol.
Just want to say Thank you to Sonia Deol for my Shout out as well when I was on stage next to her , but please please Sonia don't sing anymore (Thank God it never started to rain when she sang. Not that I'm one to talk I can't sing to save my life or anyone's else for that matter)
But it takes Gut's to sing on stage in front of God knows how many people + it's been broadcasted all around the world, so rather her then me.
