The Shaanti beatmeisters come with a quadruple hit of the infectious dance floor smasher Disco Warrior from The Kaylan. Four ways to enjoy one of this years most supported and anticipated singles due for release on Shaanti Play on 10th September.
The single in all it’s guises is packed full of what you would expect from the best of Asian beats in four separate journeys. The solid bass lines the drive of the beat and the nods to the traditional with mesmerising vocal chants. The perfect mix of cutting edge retro that should pack out any dancefloor.
With Disco Warrior dropping on Sept 10th, launch parties for the single and album Mighty Asian Beats will be taking place in two cities on August 25th at Cargo in London and August 31st at The Factory in Birmingham followed by a tour. The perfect opportunity to see The Kalyan perform live for both parties.
