Anyone heard that Timbaland/Rajeswari track? It's, like, pure
bhangra! Not just desi/bhangra-pop a la Panjabi MC, but the sort of uptempo wedding-dancing stuff that my housemates put on around the house... except when Timbaland starts quoting Sean Paul's "Get Busy". The Panjabi Hit Squad played it on their show
and then afterwards implied that it was too traditional even for them! S'alright, but it's hard to work out what he's trying to achieve - never in a million years would it crossover in the US... or am I not putting enough faith in the open-mindedness of radio?
That show is pretty great BTW, though it's eerie how much it sounds like the dancehall shows and vice versa (mostly the fault of dancehall's current bhangra obsession I think - at this stage I'd say about half of the current dancehall riddims are Indian-based, if not more).
