After the worldwide success of his debut album “Bhangrafornia,” featuring the well received song “Kente Wale Gabaroo”, North American producer Hargo Boparai is back with a brand new single in collaboration with producer Arpan. The single entitled “Taur,” features the melodious vocals of Jaggi Singh, accompanied by music and a style that is atypical to the Punjabi/Bhangra scene.
An understudy of Ustad Lal Singh Bhatti, Hargo learned the value of a traditional style of Punjabi music with an equal balance of modern beats. One of the few producers residing in the United States, Hargo has worked with major artists such as Surinder Shinda, Master Saleem, Pappi Gill, and Bakshi Billa. In 2011 Hargo released an original album entitled "Bhangrafornia" which was in the top 20 on the I-Tunes world charts in the United States. His most recent project, a tribute track entitled “We Area All Sikhs” featured Sati Chohan and the Bol Punjabi De production team (Harvi Bhachu) gained national attention and was also featured in media worldwide. Hargo has established himself a pioneer of the Punjabi music scene in North America, beginning as a deejay, developing into a remixer and eventually maturing into a original producer.
Arpan, an electro and dubstep producer also based out of California, began his musical journey as a drummer for a rock band. Living and experiencing many cultures and styles, Arpan was born in Atlanta raised in Boston and India, eventually settling in the Bay Area, California. With influences from artists and bands such as Thrice, Skrillex, Dilllon Francis, and Zedd, Arpan is a talented musician that can also play both the drums and the keyboard.
The vocalist, Jaggi Singh is based out of Punjab, India and is a well respected and accomplished singer and song writer. He has worked with many major artists worldwide throughout the Punjabi music industry. A good friend of Hargo, this is the third project that Jaggi has contributed to for Hargo.
This blend of talent has been mixed seamlessly to create a unique sound in the single “Taur”, a mix of bhangra and house. With the support of Tigerstyle’s Solider Sound Recordings, Hargo and Arpan look forward to sharing their sounds with the world and let their music do the talking. We invite you all to enjoy "Taur".
