Biography

Taz, a British Born Asian raised in Warwickshire UK, established himself as a recording artist with the release of his debut album ‘Hit the Deck’. He stormed the UK Asian pop charts for thirty-six weeks at number 1. The album went on to become one of the biggest selling Asian fusion releases of all time.

Described as the pioneer of pop fusion, a lyricist, composer and producer, Taz quickly became the embodiment of cross-cultural music. He heralded a new era in which crossover music became the pursuit of many young British Asians. His music is best described as a hybrid of Traditional Asia fused with Western pop sensibility, infectious melodies and dynamic dance grooves. Some of Taz’s influences are George Michael, Prince, Jam & Lewis, Babyface, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, R D Burman, Gurdas Maan, Kuldip Manak and Zapp!!! To name a few…

Taz is Asian rooted yet inspired by British/American ideologies; this eventually brought about a stronger experimental reggae influence into his music and the inevitable collaboration with DJ Kendell on the album ‘Spirits of Rhythm’.

The success of ‘Spirits of Rhythm’ and his Album ‘New Dawn’, the follow up, took him from strength to strength and helped mushroom a global fan base. It was at this point that Taz gave birth to the now hugely popular fusion pop group ‘Stereo Nation’, consequently signing to EMI Premier UK. The act went on to have their first British chart hit, ‘I’ve Been Waiting’ and subsequently became an instant number one smash hit throughout Asia, as well achieving ‘top ten’ video on the UK music channel, ‘The Box’.
