(Performing at Crash An Indian Wedding)
Ever since he can remember, GS Hundal has had a deep passion for music. Born Gurpal Singh Hundal in Burnaby, BC, he recalls the first tape he ever heard was Surjit Bindrakhia's "Duputta Tera Satrang Da." Gurpal credits Kuldip Manak, Amar Singh Chamkila, Surjit Bindrakhia, and Babbu Mann as his main musical influences.
Having one of the most unique and recognizable voices of his generation, GS first got his break after being introduced to Intense of Surrey, BC and Randy J of Toronto. Hundal’s first release was “Dushman,” alongside the Desi hip-hop group 3 SINGHS on Universal Music India. Following the success of “Dushman,” GS Hundal and Intense teamed up once again on “Tu Kaildee (Your Games).” The song received praise from all over the globe for its unique lyrical and production style, even being playlisted on the BBC Asian Network—a remarkable feat since the track was released independently with no label support and as a free download. GS has also combined forces with Intense on the dance hits “Nachne Nu Kare,” “Salute,” “Gidhian Di Coach,” and “Naa Baliyeh” from the highly successful albums “More than Just a DJ” and “SophistaFolk,” once again proving his musical versatility spans mellow vibes to hard-hitting dance floor bangers.
Off the success of their previous singles, GS alongside Intense released the highly anticipated EP titled “GQ Lifestyle Volume 1,” which launched the hits “Diamond Koka,” “Chali Janda,” and “Hold Up,” which has consumed dance floors and car stereos all over North America. The formula of recent success is one that GS Hundal plans to follow up with his next set of singles and “GQ Lifestyle Volume 2.” With a number of projects in the pipeline for this innovative lyricist and singer, he is one to keep your eye on.
