Jaskurn Gosal is a 23 year old Punjabi lad from Brisbane (Australia). Jas’s passion for music developed over the course of his teenage years where he started to establish which opportunities lay ahead of him, having overcome a few obstacles, he realized that music was something he wanted to take up. He began experimenting with tracks and creating mixes, fusing different sounds together to make a new sound.
Having made a number of underground remixes, his name as a DJ from australia expanded. His ability to remix saw a turning point with a major record label recognising one of his remixes of Gippy Grewal’s ‘Phulkari’ which ended up on the mainstream compilation album ‘Planet Bhangra’.
Jas was determined to take his music a step further and turned to producing his own music from scratch. Being a keen percussionist, Jaskurn had the skills to implement his production with instruments like the Dhol and Tumbi. Having learnt all his percussion from his ustaad, Gurbinder Guraya, he was determined to learn his favourite instrument, the ‘tumbi’. Being in Australia it was going to be difficult to find someone who could teach him, so eventually after much practice and perseverance he taught him self how to play.
In 2002 Jaskurn joined the Brisbane based DJ group, ‘Bhangranights’. Together, they toured all over Australia and performed live at many clubs and private functions. This step also saw him tour New Zealand and also perform in the famous Decibel night club in Delhi (India).
A few years later after making friends in the Bhangra industry, he was pushed by his peers to have a crack at mainstream production. This forced him to travel to India to record vocals and instruments. With help from his colleagues in India and Uk, Jas was able to discover the raw talent which he was looking for.
