This, is the Klasikhz experience.
The name Klasikhz is an obvious play on “classics” and “Sikhs,” which embodies two of the foundational influences of the group. The first is something that the group felt most music released these days had lost sight of, so one of the inaugural goals was to spread appreciation of the classics–through the music of Klasikhz. Since its inception, the group has undertaken many different projects to spread their name, their feeling, their style. These projects have ranged from bhangra competition mixes and performances to original production. Klasikhz very own founding member Iqwak Bhurji lives in San Jose, but his roots in Punjab remain strong. His deep love for the classic instruments and melodies of Punjabi folk music is only rivaled by his passion for remixing music and composing melodies. Dancing to bhangra has given a unique facet to his mixing style, making traditional folk instruments kick as hard as synthesized basslines and finding a forte for making boliyan stand out. A master of layouts and cutting custom beats, Iqwak does what most mixers can only imagine. Ishaara directors Shahil Patel and Sian Bentson immediately fell in love with the Klasikhz performance mix of Da Real Punjabiz, Iqwak’s professional bhangra team against which Ishaara competed at Best of the Best 2008. Ishaara wasted no time in connecting with Iqwak and quickly forged a life-long partnership. As Ishaara continues to grow and gain recognition across the nation, their performance mixes are only getting better, and they thank Klasikhz for coming along with them for the ride!
