Kalikwest, which is an acronym of Mannie’s place of residence – California – and his Quest to discover what the world has to offer him, unleashes this 12-tracker featuring a collection of his own personal favorite vocalists and producers. The speaker-hugging and dancefloor-friendly beats are inspired by his love of Punjabi music and Urban culture which the Kalikwest movement are pioneers of in the USA.
As director of Kalikwest WorldWide Ent., Mannie works closely with the likes of Sukshinder Shinda and Jazzy B from the South-Asian arena as well as internationally recognized superstars Akon, Lil Jon, Twista and Snoop Dogg amongst others.
Using his enviable knowledge of urban music, his connections and media know-how and his grasp of desi music and Hip Hop, Kalikwest have provided some of the inventors of some of the biggest Bhangra/Hip-Hop collaborations around such as Jazzy B’s ‘Romeo’ and ‘Nakhro’ and Sukshinder Shinda’s ‘Shoulder Surf’, ‘Panjabi Clap’, ‘Around the World’ and the monster-hit ‘Balle.’
