H-Dhami is back and taking over the music scene and everything with it, from sell out gigs to hitting the number one spot. We found out first what he has to say.
t’s said absence makes the heart grow fonder, but in the case of H-Dhami his sudden disappearance from the scene was a concern to his army of fans.That I-feel-like-dancing vibe died down just as he did. Well that rhythmic vibe is back along with its creator! He’s back, bigger and is going to hit us with even more shoulder-shaking tunes that will definitely blow your socks off. His first album was the start of his major career as a sell-out artist. It went platinum after just releasing a few months earlier, now hoping that his fourth coming album: Punjabi R.O.O.Ts is heading high in the charts, hopefully even higher than the previous album did. With what it’s doing now with the release date being pushed forward two months earlier, it’s more than expected to do well. Ladies fall at his feet and the boys’ nod their head to his beats... Make way for H-Dhami!
It’s great to have you back! Where have you been hiding? I’ve been touring over the world mainly, but more recently I’ve been working away in the studio pulling together my new album Punjabi R.O.O.Ts. I wanted to come back bigger, better and have more under my belt than before.
You sound pretty ready. How does it feel to be back? It’s great! The atmosphere, the fans, the studio, just everything! Everyone welcomes me back like I’ve been away forever, but I guess it has felt like that. Leaving the scene for such a long time was like leaving my family. I get a buzz of being around everyone in the studio, it doesn’t even feel like I’m working. I love it. Your tours have been fantastic! Your just everywhere at the moment aren’t you... Well what can I say? After being away I’ve gotta make a big come back, I can’t just sit here. If I had that sort of attitude I wouldn’t be where I am now, I’ve worked so hard I don’t want it to go to waste. So I’ve been touring like mad, it’s so tiring but for the end result is worth it.
DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD “I’m back so there’s #2 no point... They might aswell give up now” The pressure of trying to produce an album as good as your fist must’ve been tough... With all the touring I didn’t have a chance to put together a new album. So I wrote a few songs that are on the new album and performed them on tour, along with all the other songs, so it gave the audience a taste of what to expect from the new album. Only recently fhave I been working non-stop on the album. At first I thought it might not be ready for an early release, but I said to myself why not? After all, the amount of blood, sweat and tears I shed to make the album, it must be as ready as I am to go back.
Wow..so other than touring what else have you been upto? Apart from touring i was just working on the album, but now that’s finnished I’ve been doing a lot to promote the album with signings and other things. As well as that I’ve been just trying to spend some time with my family, it’s a hard balance to keep, but it has to be done. BHANGRA beats 10
