"Exactly 15 years ago came out a song that surprised both the Indian and the Hip Hop community and still provides a great atmosphere at any party. Punjabi music mixed with fat hip hop beats. Rajinder Rai, aka Panjabi MC then made with the song "Mundian to bach ke" the breakthrough and is since then a pioneer of Bhangra-hip-hop, a blend of Indian music and hip hop. Long as one has heard from him no more. Currently is working on his new album "56 District" and mixed today with the carnival. And we have of course invited him to us directly!" - funkhauseuropa.de

"I would put a Panjabi MC soundtrack on there, some hardcore beats, some nice Tablas because we got to see some wildlife in the film Meerkats running around a island we didn’t even no existed and stuff like that. But at the same time we needed some beats up in the place to keep people awake" - Panjabi MC
