Taj-E has been named by some as one of the freshest and most innovative music producers of the moment.

On the back of the success of his best selling albums such as his debut release, LOOKagain, Taj E has toured internationally playing to thousand of Bhangra music fans.
As a schoolboy Taj-E always showed interest in music and even studied music, both classical and Jazz. He started to play various musical instruments such as the Alto Saxophone, Drums, Piano.
He was then influenced by his brother and singer Bee2, probably one of the best tumbi players in the world. This influence steered him in the direction of rhythm and to India where he learned to play the Mandil.
The latest album from Taj E, Sik ‘n’ Twisted, was released earlier this year. It features an all star line-up of top name artists. One of the most eagerly anticipated tracks was a song from the late Kaka Bhaniawala who died suddenly just before the record was released. Juggy D also collaborated with the popular producer, as did Nirmal Sidhu and Bradley a.k.a City Boy. The album featured a staggering 21 tracks many of which turned out to be pumping dance floor fillers proving a hit at some the biggest club nights in the U.K and beyond.
Juggy D’s track, Vang Teri, from the successful album, was later turned into an urban remix. The original track was slowed right down and a rap was played over the top adding anther edge to this hit song.
As one of the most exciting Asian urban producers of the moment, Taj E has appeared all over the world. He’s been invited to play at some of the biggest club nights in the best venues from London to Canada and India. Recently whilst on tour to promote his new album, he was caught in Mexico at the time of the Swine Fu outbreak. But this fearless producer wasn’t going to let the small matter of an epidemic get in his way of his music, and he went on to DJ at the gig regardless.
