Last December (2011), we introduced you all to X Fader and his hot tune called “Bekhabar“. Since then, he released a couple other singles, and is back now with two new pulsating remixes of ‘Bekhabar’. The remixes include a Dubstep mix and an Arabian Mix, which again showcase his versatility as a Producer/DJ.
The Dubstep Mix represents a crossover sound, electronica fused in with hook lines of ‘Bekhabar’ (sung by Simran and Mai Khalil) but this time with heavy basslines, leads and a hard-hitting Dubstep beat. The mix also includes a build up section featuring X Fader’s own voice.
The ‘Bekhabar’ Dubstep mix has already been on regular rotation on Nihal’s BBC Radio one show, Bobby Friction’s BBC Asian Network Show, the Mic Check show and DJ Kayper’s show. Here what these DJs had to say regarding the Bekhabar Dubstep Mix:
“Amazing!! Bollywood has never sounded so heavy!!’ – Nihal from BBC Radio 1/Asian Network.
“I’ve been itching to play this all week!!’ – Bobby Friction from BBC Asian Network.
“Bekhabar Dubstep Mix – Definitely stood out. We both picked the tune without even
having a conversation about it and wanted to play it on the show..Expect big things
from this guy” – Kan D Man and Dj Limelight from BBC Asian Network.
Contrasting this heavy dubstep mix, is the Arabian Mix featuring a more organic beat, with raw Middle Eastern percussion fused with synths, all blending smoothly into the latest Club/House Music. This track too has gained in popularity already!
“Some unique South Asian-Middle Eastern fusion sounds. Very well done!’ – Sid Pandya from CJAM-FM, Canada.
X Fader has also been featured as BBC Introducing Artist of the week (16th July) on Friction’s Show and was also the ‘Spotlight Artist’ of the week (7th July) on the Mic Check Show. The original version of ‘Bekhabar’ has also gained early spins on BBC Radio 1 (Nihal) and BBC Asian Network (specialist shows) and other radio stations all over the world.
We will continue to watch the rise of this talent here on Urban Asian, and hope you will join us in following his journey!
