Twin Beats (formerly known as ‘The Twinz’) have been heavily involved with the DJ scene since 1998, playing predominantly Bhangra music. Steadily they have established themselves as professional DJs and are now playing at both the national and international level.
The Twins went on to integrate their DJ expertise into the roadshow market, namely Sounds of Punjab; they formed in 2002 and what started as a hobby has now become a huge success in such a short time.
After being involved with bhangra music since a young age, The Twins became interested in the production aspect of it; they began with bedroom mixes, which later progressed into more complex remixes and gained them a lot of interest in the underground scene.
They put together a demo tape and later signed a management deal with DJ Stin. Stin became a mentor to the twins and 2 years later they featured on a remix of ‘Tin Cheeja’ which they co-produced with Dr Zeus on the album ‘The Street Remixes’. Soon after the release of the track, they were contacted by VIP records who then signed them.
“Our main aim is to promote Punjabi music and culture in its various forms. Ultimately we want Bhangra music to be recognised globally as a music genre in itself, not just as a sub-category under World music”.
