The latest track is a fusion between Punjabi words and UK rap, with the meaning behind ‘Rewind’, celebrates the experience of loving someone who feels like a true partner-in-crime, a theme that is consistent with Raxstar’s previous work.
The track has been produced by Lyan, who has been working with other British Asian talent such as Nish, Mumzy Stranger, H Dhami and many more.
We’ve seen tracks such as “Janneman”, “Sun Raha” and “Ankhyaan”, from the UK rapper which have been influenced from Bollywood and R&B records he grew up with.
Speaking about the track, Raxstar said: “I wanted to create something that was anthemic in nature and can transcend genre boundaries.
The world is a lot smaller now, thanks mostly to the internet, so creating a sound which is representative of who I am and where I am from was imperative.”
