Global Party Starters

play all visit

Global Party Starters started as an idea two years ago to take South Asian artists out of their niche markets and expose them to a wider musical audience. This album does just that. Keep Us On Your Radar is produced by Juno-nominated DJ A-SLAM; DJ REKing; and desiFEST founder, SatsB. The album has thirteen tracks, ten of which feature South Asian-Canadian artists: Sangeeta D from Calgary; Faze, Nizzy, and Anjali from Vancouver; and Shahid Ali Khan and Lady Pista, both from Toronto. The high energy album is EDM-focused with a mix of hip-hop and R&B vocals as well as South Asian influences.

The first single, “Follow Me” featuring Lady Pista, is the sixth track on the album and the first video to be released. This song represents the prevailing theme of the album: follow your dreams! Shot in studio in Vancouver and live in Toronto during desiFEST 2016, the video is interspersed with appearances by celebrities such as Jasmine Sandlas, Delhi 2 Dublin, H-Dhami, Gary Mangat and many others sharing their own messages of encouragement and personal growth!

Listeners can pick up the album and Follow Your Dreams t-shirts on the GPS Facebook page and stream the album to their YouTube channel.
