Video: Mentor's DH! Remix of the Sugababes' 'About a Girl'
The UK Asian Music Awards went down in London earlier in March and DH! made sure the evening sizzled to the max by presenting the girls from the Sugababes who performed and handed out an award to Jay Sean.
Everyone was screaming with excitement when the sexy ladies hit the stage, performing their track "About a Girl" remixed by Urban Desi producer Mentor.
DH! even hooked the babes up with a few Dhol players from Drumline Entertainment to add some Desi flavor to the show that was truly spectacular!
And now the music video to the hot Desified remix is out!
The Sugababes continue to be one of Britain's most exciting and dynamic bands. With an amazing mix of genius songs, pure talent and total drama, they have constantly surprised, transformed and entertained.
With over seven million albums and three million singles sold, they have also amassed more Top 10 singles than the Spice Girls, All Saints or Destiny's Child, just to name a few. With three triple-platinum albums, numerous sold out tours and number one hits in over 15 countries, they have consistently stayed at the top of the game.
And now they are ready to take over the Indian market as they are set to head out to India on April 21 to perform at the IPL closing ceremony on April 23 and 25. The girls told DH! they are eager to put on a show for all their Indian fans:
"We are very excited about performing at such a prestigious event. We very honored to be invited to be part of it. We have always wanted to perform over in India and we are looking forward not only to the performance but experiencing such a wonderful culture."
Looks like Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen are ready to dominate India!
Mentor has been an established producer and remixer whose past credits include Timbaland and Magoo, Craig David, Jay Sean, Juggy D, AG Dolla, Nitin Sawhney, Veronica and Jon B. Known for his hard-hitting and culturally diverse beats, Mentor was the founder of number 1 selling group the Mentor Kolektiv and produced the critically acclaimed album "Broke."
The producer told DH! he was excited to work on this project:
"My vision for this remix sees the Sugababes conquering the South Asian subcontinent. They're a great girl band that has dominated the European market, and this remix will be their introduction to Asian music lovers around the world. It's a Desi twist on the original track. I stripped down the drums and instruments and rebuilt the track with the view to make it really groove - Desi style!"
"I also hope it will appeal to non Asians and make them see the Sugababes in a different light. The original track was one of my favorite Sugababes tunes and I relished the opportunity to work on it. Big thanks to DesiHits.com for hooking up the project," he added.
