Dr. Zeus is the stage name of Baljit Singh Paddam, who is a Punjabi Music Producer. He gained stardom in India in late 2003 with his hit song "Kangna". He is popular all over the world with huge fan base's in India, US, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other large Punjabi markets. His popularity broadened when he collaborated with South-Asian female trio, Rouge.
Dr. Zeus began his career in 1999 where he was signed to the Envy music label based in Birmingham, UK where he produced PURE GARAGE - SUE MY ASS by the Punjabi singer, Balwinder Singh Safri, from the band Safri Boyz. He had two popular songs on this album, which were "Sahiba bani prawa di" and "Par langa de veh".
He then released his debut solo album "The High Life". In 2001 again on the Envy music label, this with the vocal talents of Amar Arshi singing "Gwandian Da Dhol", which again was a hit but still did not put Zeus on the international scale until 2003.
Dr. Zeus then released Unda Da Influence in 2003. This album surprised the Bhangra industry as a whole. Unda Da Influence gave Zeus the international and UK boost to take Best Album of 2003 and Best Song of 2003 "Kangna".
Dr. Zeus then released his third album, "The Original Edit" in 2005 with Lehmber Hussainpuri singing all the vocals. This album had many hit songs such as Je Jatt Bigr Gaya, Sachiyan Suniyan Ni, and Das Ki Soniyeh.
Dr. Zeus then released his remix album of all his greatest hits entitled The Street Remix in 2006, which again did make heads turn and give Zeus more confidence and recognition.
Dr. Zeus' most recent album; released in 2007 named Back Unda Da Influence is now available. In this album Zeus took a very different approach compared to Unda Da Influence and considers it a much more 'Desi' album. In Back Unda Da Influence Zeus used majority unknown artists and introduced another new phenomenon; G.Sharmilla; whom Zeus has high expectation of. Back Unda Da Influence has received a massive reception and many consider it a contestant for album of the year 2007/2008. The song named Sat Sri Akaal hit No.1 on the BBC Asian Network Charts.
Dr. Zeus stated on a recent BBC Asian Network interview that Back Unda Da Influence was recorded exclusively at his own studio (BFK Studio). This will hopefully stop all the people claiming that they produced all of Zeus' music.
Artist management for Dr. Zeus within the United States is conducted by The Diamond Lane Records based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
