New Delhi — Punjabi bhangra hip-hop group, Rhythm Dhol Bass (RDB) announced they’re set to release their latest single, in collaboration with American rapper T-Pain, this December.

“We will launch a new single with T-Pain in December,” Manjeet Ral, known as Manj of RDB told IANS while talking about the band’s future plans.

“Then we are in a double mind on whether to release one or two more singles and then release the entire new album. Singles have their own impact, and releasing it in one go in an album won’t be so impactful,” he added.

Their new album, titled Worldwide, will have a mixture of tracks from different genres like hip-hop and house, and so it is named aptly. The title was chosen by former band member Kuldeep Ral aka Kuly, who died of a brain tumour last year.

The band initially comprised of brothers Manjeet, Surjeet and Kuljeet Ral.

“The new album is a mixture of all types of music, all types of genres, from hip-hop, house to Punjabi traditional stuff as well as we have collaborated with a lot of artists for the album,” he said.

“We have recently finished a song with Salim-Sulaiman and now we are ready to shoot its video. We are also working with Vishal-Shekhar and Gippy Grewal.

“The album is really all about showcasing our kind of music with these guys’ vocals and it’s really to push the fact that we can break boundaries and work with great people who are doing great music,” Manj added.

In Bollywood, the band has created songs like Rafta rafta, Paisa paisa, Aloo chat, Shera di kaum and Sadi galli.

They recently had the audience grooving to their track Tamanchey pe disco from the forthcoming movie Bullett Raja.
