Her vocal style goes from the leftfield harmonies of Erykah Badu and then to the punchiness of M.I.A. within a verse.
There’s a variety of sounds that runs through the whole album, from RnB beats to mellow acoustic riffs that would be comfortable on a Zero 7 track, such as on “Crisis”.
“Baja” (surely not named after punjab2000’s very own Baja?!) kicks in with a pure Bhangra beat which mellows out smoothly towards the end.
The later songs, sang in hindi, have a touch of Basement Jaxx’s eclecticism, with a bit of Spanish rhythm.
The rhythms flow from London pop to pure grassroots bhangra, especially on the title track. Things get a bit darker on “Broken Dream”, airy haunting vocals are set off with grungey guitars and chopped up bolly samples.
All in all, an album that delivers exactly what you’d come to expect from Trickbaby: a variety of sounds and cultures, fused together seamlessly to make a fresh and catchy vibe.
