Biography

Critically acclaimed DJ Rekha embarks on the next chapter of her career with the release of her highly anticipated debut album – DJ Rekha Presents Basement Bhangra – on KOCH Records. On her debut, Basement Bhangra, DJ Rekha invites the listener to go with her into a world that merges the traditional Bhangra music of South Asia and the Hip-Hop beats of today, this disc really takes you on a journey into the infectious expanding South Asian dance music genre known as Bhangra. The listener will be able to experience some of the music that is heard at DJ Rekha’s own internationally known event called Basement Bhangra, the New York dance party – which takes place every first Thursday of the month at Sounds of Brazil (S.O.B.’s) – that DJ Rekha has spearheaded and nurtured for more than ten years now.

Encapsulating the energy and intensity of the cultural phenomenon that is Basement Bhangra, this 17 track album is a mix CD – with four exclusive tracks including two original productions from Rekha – the music is designed for those who are already immersed in the sound and encourages new listeners who are bold enough to jump in headfirst. DJ Rekha has collaborated with an array of incredible artists including Wyclef Jean, Panjabi MC, and Bikram Sing – to name a few. The album skillfully weaves together Punjabi folk traditions and dancehall rhythms from Jamaica and DJ techniques that are 100% New York.

    It's sort of funny how vastly different this is from the music I normally listen to but damn it is amazing! Hopefully i'll get to see DJ Rekha spin one day!
