Arizona Entertainment, which consists of Ganesh, Meera and Ashok, has released their latest track – Mutte Briyani. Penned by Maney Villainz, with Slim Lazer Yd’s kuthu music and Shane X’treme’s melody – Mutte Briyani is a good attempt from the newcomers. Lyrically – it’s entertaining, while the delivery from the singers is also worth highlighting. Watch the lyrics video and let us know what you think!
2014 has been a year of breakthroughs in the Malaysian Tamil music scene. From amazing comebacks to emergence of new talents, the independent music scene just gets better over time. In this post, we will be featuring 10 fresh and re-emerging talents to watch in 2014 and in the coming months.
Not just a radio announcer, V-Sha, Malaysia’s Tamil femcee, is another talent to lookout for in the coming year. Upon releasing her first single, V-licious in late 2011, the female rapper went silent for the past years. It was only in 2014, she re-emerged with IBP Studios, namely for Aruginil’s title track. Through her latest track – Marayavillai featuring Nancy Anne, V-Sha has certainly improved by leaps and bounds from her previous attempts.
Klang-born rapper, Shantra, is one talent that will certainly shine in the coming months. Even before the grand success of Graamatthu Ponnu, Shantra made his name through his hit singles – Solammal Pogathey and Penney. Nonetheless, it was Graamatthu Ponnu, which has so far hit the million mark, which elevated his name in the music scene. Besides, his recent collaboration with Raj Pirate and Havoc Mathen for En Chellame is an ear-pleasing track that will surely get you hooked on it.
In 2011, Combatz made their mark on the local scene with their track Sentamizhachi. Fast forward 2014, Combatz is set to release their music album – Munnurai in the coming months. Consisting of Mizter. N, C’tten, Mac Orange and Ver’N, Munnurai is likely to be impressive as Shane X’treme has composed all the songs in the album with Combatz’s lyrical prowess. In addition, their promo track – Nittham Nittham featuring Abieramy is melodiously beautiful. Besides, their cover tracks – Amma and Malai Thesum has also been impressive in terms of lyrical content. Munnurai is certainly one of the independent Tamil music album to keep an eye on this coming year.

Malaysian-based music composer Tiban is ready to take on the independent Tamil music scene with a storm. The eclectic composer recently had the opportunity to collaborate with flamboyant and young singer – Abhay Jodhpurkar, who is famous for his work for AR Rahman’s Moongil Thootham from the film Kadal.
Along with Abhay, the track, which is titled Kangalai, is also to feature Super Singer Finalist Soundarya Iyer. With Abhay’s melodious vocals and Soundarya’s harmonious voice, Kangalai is sure to be both mind-blowing and poise! Tiban, who has been making melodious hits and radio faves, has been busy working on his solo album which is set to feature a good blend of Tamil artists and musicians from around the global Tamil diaspora community. The upcoming composer, who has been gaining popularity in Europe among the Tamil community, is slated to release his composer-based album in the coming months.
IBP Studios has released Marayavillai, a single from their female rapper, V-Sha, featuring and introducing labelmate Nancy Anne. Without a doubt, the chemistry between the pair is evident throughout the track. V-Sha has certainly improved her skills in Marayavillai – far more composed and toned from her previous single, V-licious.
On another note, Nancy Anne’s melodious vocals come through as both innocent and harmonious. Nonetheless, the credit goes to the genius behind the composition of Marayavillai – CoruzHooks. With a subtle touch of electro and fusion, Marayavillai is CoruzHooks’ best work to date. We believe there is much more to come from the composer, whose previous works can be found in Saavadi mixtape and also his infectious single – Neethane.
Tha Machanz from Selayang – SLY Squad dropped their latest cover – #OMK, which was way back in June. Sung by C-Snav, AC and Mista Carey, #OMK is a cover of Jason Derulo’s Talk Dirty. Recorded and mixed by the multi-talented Tactmatic, #OMK is a totally-out-of-the-box kind of track from the Selayang rappers.
The highlight of the cover is certainly Mista Carey’s verse, in which he perfectly flaunts his Tamil. Anyway, what does #OMK stands for? Let us give you a hint – fermented coconut! Listen and you’ll know!
On another note, while we are so far loving SLY Squad’s covers, such as Po Nee Po, Jokko and Tin Kosong, we are missing their original stuff. Here is a combination that we would like to see – Neroshen on music, SLY Squad on vocals!
