Music What's Happenin'

What do Drake, M.I.A., & AR Rahman have in common?

If you’ve been reading UrbanAsian religiously, you should know the answer as we pretty much gave it away in one of our December 27, 2011 postings.  Don’t worry, I won’t make you hunt down the article, but I’ll be nice and reveal the answer here.  It’ll only take two words to do so – Rahman Noodles.  I’m not talking about the food group, but I’m taking about the mashup by Raj Star.

Drake, M.I.A. & AR Rahman feature in Raj Star’s second video from the “Rahman Noodles” album (see below).

Raj Star aka Raj Makhija is a freelance music producer, composer, sound engineer, DJ, songwriter and musician based out of New York and Mumbai.  He is one artist you will definitely want to follow!  In the industry, he is described as being  “Timbaland meets AR Rahman”.  In the album, Raj Star uses samples of AR Rahman’s work as well as of various western musicians, all mixed up in Raj Star style.

We’re happy to share that Raj Star is releasing the full album as a free download!  So, what are you waiting for?  Go download the songs now!!
