Rishi Rich Project ft. Juggy D & Jay Sean - Dance With You CD [Virgin]
Rishi Rich
Jay Sean
On the 1st September the Rishi Rich Project will be releasing their debut single 'Dance With You' via Virgin Records. 'Dance With You' is an up-tempo R'n'B track with a strong Asian flavour, produced by Rishi Rich, featuring Punjabi vocalist Juggy D and R'n'B singer Jay Sean. Incorporating Bhangra beats, Asian lyrics and a bumping baseline, 'Dance With You' has been simmering away on the Asian circuit for the last three months, and is all set to cause absolute mayhem on dance floors the length and breadth of the UK this summer. 

Over the last couple of years there has been a fusion of Asian vocals and music in R'n'B and hip-hop, most notably in tracks like Dr Dre's - Truth Hurts 'Addiction' and Redman's 'React'. As an original pioneer of the Asian/R'n'B fusion sound, producer Rishi Rich is confident that this is just the start of big things to come. Rishi a 25 year-old British born Asian from West London, has been incredibly successful to date, producing 10 traditional Asian music albums, while also producing smash hit singles for Mis-teeq and Craig David. Rishi not only creates Asian fusion tracks, but has also produced pure hip-hop beats for the likes of Fallacy and Estelle, as well as R'n'B/pop tracks for the artists such as Liberty X. Rishi is currently working on productions for Britney Spears, Ricky Martin and Mary J Blige. 

Rishi released his debut solo album 'Simply Rich' last year, where he collaborated with 22 year old Punjabi vocalist Juggy D for the first time, on the track 'Nahin Jeenaa', which ended up on top of the Asian charts for 6 weeks. For his next single he wanted to add an extra element, and hooked up with Jay Sean, a 22 year old R'n'B singer and rapper, who had been performing as part of hip-hop act 'Compulsive Disorder'. Their single, 'Dance With You', is a real 'battle of the dialects' between Punjabi and English and is the perfect collaboration of cutting edge production, traditional Punjabi vocals and soulful R'n'B. On a recent visit to the UK, Jamaican heavy-weight Wayne Wonder heard the track and immediately asked if he could lay down additional vocals. The result is an innovative re-mix which will undoubtedly propel 'Dance With You' to even greater heights, bringing this exciting new UK fusion sound to the masses.
