|Blitz (Blitzkrieg), a name that needs no introduction in the urban Desi music industry is back with a new single and a collection of goodies on his ‘album‘. Originally discovered by Punjabi MC and signed by Tigerstyle, Blitzkrieg released his debut album “The Rhyme Book” with VIP Records in 2007. |
Blitz comes with a wealth of experience and some amazing past success stories. His music has been licensed across the globe for various projects and to music labels including Universal Music UK, Universal Music India, Sony Music India, Times Music India and most recently, Blitz was the only North American male MC featured on the smash hit song ‘Goriye‘ from the award-winning Bollywood movie ‘Gully Boy‘.

Before the advent of social media and long with his long time collaborator Roach Killa, Blitz pioneered the sound of Toronto’s urban Desi music scene and helped it gain worldwide recognition through constant international touring and radio/video play. Blitz’s latest project, appropriately titled ‘Demo Tapes‘ is a collection of some of the classic Blitzkrieg tracks that initially gained him international notoriety but have been previously unavailable via digital outlets.
‘Demo Tapes‘ is led by the brand new single ‘600cc‘ featuring the classic duo of Blitz & Roach Killa demonstrating the best of Canada’s urban desi sound backed with production from veteran producer E=MC previously from the RDB / Untouchables label.
All 3 artists on the 600cc are originally from Toronto but at various stages, they all individually migrated to the UK to create a name for themselves in the British Asian music scene. This is the first the come together on one track!
The project also features additional production from the well respected UK music maestro ‘Mentor Beatz’.
Blitz says: “This project is the epitome of urban Desi. This is the indo-Canadian / British Asian sound that laid the foundations for many new artists. We are the definition of a career in Desi hip-hop.”
‘Demo Tapes’ releases via all digital outlets on Sunday 30th May 2021.
