Panjabi MC – Chaiyya Chaiyya Bollywood Joint

Bram, DJ Premier, Panjabi MC, Todd and Pablo.

This production is kinda other then what we are used to. So I saw a reason to share it with you guys. Punjabi MC and DJ Premier, who had ever thought? Punjabi MC, know from “Mundian To Bach Ke”, classic party track when you are drunk as fuck. Spike Lee had directed this movie called Inside Man, he wanted Panjabi MC on the soundtrack, so Panjabi MC flew from London to New York to record this track. Spike Lee probably though that DJ Premier was the right guy for the recording so Panjabi MC went to DJ Premier with the other musicians for the soundtrack of the movie. They made this track called “Chaiyya Chaiyya Bollywood Joint”, it’s a remix to the original “Chaiyya Chaiyya” (some famous Indian soundtrack) and the credits say produced and scratches by DJ Premier. I guess everybody had his influence on the track. You can find the track in the opening of the movie or on the soundtrack disc. Enjoy:

    Yo Gim, that’s some racist comment you made man, what the hell does an indian have to do with doner kebab, a turkish meal? Like all the middle easterns are all the same, lol.

    Lol Don, what is rascist about that? You maybe see Donor Kebab as a poor? And why do I read the word Indian? Panjabi is not indian, he’s an english dude. Don’t look too far man. By making that sentence I don’t overlook any race. Here in Belgium Kebab is even a big business…

    Rascist in my eyes mean you judge someone on his race, before you know him. It’s not because he looks like a Kebab guy I’m judging him as terrorist…

    Much love Don

  • Oh damn, that shit is CRAZY!!! So you’re saying that Primo produced that??? WTF?!!

    1. “when I saw this guy” – you didn’t saw londoner, you saw indian / turkish guy
    2. “fresh Doner Kebab” – if you would saw londoner you woould think about some tea

  • Comment from Tony Noodles

    HA. A few years ago I remember telling my friend I could identify any Primo beat easily in a few seconds. And I remember him playing this song on a roadtrip. Finally I connect the two. It was a test. I was pissed when he wouldn’t give up the name. Maybe I got the original out of it, I don’t remember.
