GoldKartz going global with second album

PETALING JAYA: A local bhangra band will be releasing its album worldwide tomorrow.

Bhangra duo GoldKartz's sophomore album 24 Karaatz will be released simultaneously in Malaysia, India, Britain, Europe, Canada and the United States.

GoldKartz, consisting of brothers Manjit Singh and Sukhjit Gill, made their debut in the Urban Bhangra music scene in 2008 with their first album Loaded.

Loaded was the first bhangra album to be made fully in Malaysia and was honoured by the Malaysia Book of Records for that distinction.

Unlike the first album, 24 Karaatz features collaborations with musicians from outside the country.

“For this album, we've collaborated with north Indian musician Rishi Rich, Mumzy Stranger and UK act Panjabi by Nature,” Manjit said in a press release yesterday.

“We also recorded a song, Rock with You, with Indian composer-singer-producer Shankar Mahadevan,” he added.
