DJ and Singer, Bobby Akhiyan has just released his third solo single Haal Kuriyeh featuring the music maestro DJ Surinder Rattan.
Bobby, raised in Manchester has been DJing since the age of 15 with his roadshow Desi Jockeys. He fast became one of the most reputable Bollywood and Bhangra DJs across UK and Europe accompanied by DJ Micky. Bobby, also a Punjabi Pop singer, first performed on stage at the age of 4 where he sang the hit song “Vadeya Sharabia Ve” by Gurdas Maan. He began his professional singing career in 2001 with “Akhiyan Akhiyan” which became very popular and is still loved. He was inspired by legends such as Surinder Shinda, Kuldeep Manak, Gurdas Maan and also some modern singers and musicians from the UK Bhangra including Shin DCS, Sahotas, B21 and Achanak.
Desi Jockeys teamed up with music producers Surinder Rattan, Jeeti and Vee to deliver this project which includes a mix of dance floor bangers and unplugged music including a brand new version of "Thenu Thakia" which is due to be released in the near future.
Desi Jockeys has collaborated with Studio 5/Box Media which collaborated to create a signature shabby chic, boutique hybrid live lounge set for the music videos, creating a fresh new concept to bring UK Bhangra videos in line with the mainstream industry.
This project is unique as Bobby Akhiyan is not only a DJ but also a singer, songwriter, composer and music producer
