Glad to see some interest in Season 2! The overall purpose of the ladder was to provide the BTF audience with some fresh music/beats to jam to during the summer, hear some creative work from up & coming mixers, and basically provide something to look forward to during the bhangra "off season" (ideally the beginning of June through the beginning of October).

As vox stated though, Season 1 of the ladder required A LOT of manual management from the mixing ladder mods including Swi & myself. It also caused a lot of frustration for many us running the ladder when we had mixers not doing their part or not even responding.

At the end of Season 1 of the mixing ladder, we did brainstorm a few ways to make this a more streamline process in the future (Season 2 onward). We definitely do hope to bring back a Season 2 of the ladder, because I know many people enjoyed it (mixers actually received some helpful feedback, the BTF audience got to hear mixes that they probably would never hear elsewhere, and overall it displayed how much talent is out there from DJ's/mixers you might or might not be familiar with).

I also received some PM's/e-mails with suggestions, promotional opportunities, and asking if we would bring it back (some new people wanted to participate). Once again, we would love to deliver Season 2 of BTF's Mixing Ladder, but it will most likely next year during the off season - hopefully we come up with some ways to automate this further.

Awesome! Thank you sharing the link here Bobby. It's so amazing to have seen this on national TV. True recognition for bhangra.

Don't forget to cast your 10 votes for Cornell Bhangra:

Everyone please take a moment to do so & pray that the team has a chance to advance!

What is the song right before Jogi?

The hurr song with the gimmick.

Welcome to BTF!

The lyrics go like this: pehli uddi furrr, dooji uddi furrr, teeji uddi furrr, reh gaye kalle hurrr ("furrr" is describing the sound of a bird flapping & taking off in flight).

The song is Raj Brar - Furr (Album: Rebirth)


Hope that helps,

So sad to hear this news about Bhangra at the Bell. Truly one of the best competitions we had in the circuit.

As other mentioned earlier, a big thank you to Rahul and to your entire organizing team for all the hard work you guys did to put this event on for the teams, the Philly crowd, and for the bhangra fans around the world at large.

All the best in your future endeavors & we all hope that you can contribute to the bhangra world in some other way down the road.

First all, welcome to BTF MyHenna and I'm happy to hear that you're on the journey to start a new all girls bhanga team. We can definitely use a lot more!

Pretty much everything you've mentioned in your post has been discussed here, not just once, but numerous times. No offense, have you tried searching on the forum? There is a wealth of knowledge on BTF, especially for newer teams.

It's gonna require a bit of effort on your part to find the answers, but as a captain/leader on your new team, you better get used to that. After you've spent a good amount of time searching BTF & the web, if you still have any questions, I'm sure many will be more than willing to help.

Again, please don't take my post the wrong way, it just seems by your first post that you haven't really researched these questions and just want to be spoon fed everything.

Bhangra has taken over the main Cornell University homepage:

^^ That's very impressive. The team & alumni are working VERY HARD to spread the word and get people to vote.

For those that haven't done so already, simply go to and cast your vote. Voting requires registration (which takes less than 30 seconds) for verification purposes. Please spread the word if you have a chance. There is only 2 days left to vote!!

Hope you guys make it to the finals. You have our full support!

A short video of Cornell's performance on the Today Show is here:

Great job to Cornell Bhangra to expose the dance to the masses. Good luck the rest of the way team.

if u guys dont like the mix dont be commenting bullsh*t on it

Why are you even posting it on BTF if you don't want to hear feedback on it? Just leave it on soundcloud next time rather then telling people to "check it out" and get mad if they express their opinions.

This is a bhangra forum - not DJ Nitrone's "I'm sharing my shit and you better love it" website.

By the way, I noticed in your other recent "mixes," all you're doing is taking other people's work and combining them. Almost anyone can do that in a matter of minutes. How are you a mixer if you can't take an original song and mix it to sound different/give it your own twist?

Saw this on facebook and it's more of a commercial than a song, but it's too funny to not post here:

The link please..?

Link for what exactly? Check the first post.

If you're looking for the soundcloud link, click on the blue strip on the bottom of embedded soundcloud mix and you can go to soundcloud directly to download the mix.

Welcome to BTF backtopunjab,

I slightly modified your topic's title to provide more information to readers. If, in the future, you create any customized designs for bhangra team t-shirts, it would be great if you could post a picture in this topic of your work. You could even get the team to post a testimonial of working with you/your company.

Good luck with this venture,

~ Basim :)

 :'(  Don't do it Saleem! Media Center is one of the best things of BTF!

I sometimes want a digitial copy of the of a song or a mix and having to go elsewhere to look for that will be a major disappointment.

I think having the ability to embed Soundcloud, Mixcloud, Youtube, Vimeo, etc links has it's own place on a forum. I mainly check out those links out when I'm on a PC. We still need a place to share mp3's so people can have music to jam to in their cars, at the gym, at work, while on the toilet, etc etc.

My $0.02,

now im going germany

Just because they crushed Portugal? #bandwagoner! :P haha.

I was pretty impressed watching France play. They either have a pretty strong team or Honduras was just an extremely weak opponent.

Sher Foundation
Khalsa Junction
Lethal Bhangra Crew
The Bhangra Team
Phulorida Bhangra
Cornell Bhangra
Duniya All Stars

Three Rivers Bhangra, Punjabi Soormay, SIAC, Gabroo Shokeen, and Michigan Bhangra Team could be thrown into that list as well.

And don't forget those ladies who led the way for many all-female squads: UBC Girlz ;)
