29th Haftanama Patari


XULFI BOYS ARE BACK! ​*running around in circles*​

Pakistan aur uss ke muzafat mein Nescafe Basement Season 4 ka waqt hua chahta hai. Basement is here, with another wehshi season, starting with “Tere Jeya Hor Disda” and “Jadu Ka Chiragh“. Utter brilliance. We don’t know how they do it but whatever they’ve done with Tere Jeya is intoxicating and from our stats, people can’t stop listening to it. It came out a day before V-day so kafi logon ke bae ke sath kafi points bhi ban gaye thay.

P.S. We use ‘boys’ as a gender neutral term huehue.

“They Can’t Stop To People Love” – Malka-e-WTF Qandeel Baloch

In case you missed it, our pyaray prez, Mamnoon Hussain said Ishq-e-Mamnoon (Valentine’s Day) shouldn’t be celebrated because it’s “not part of our tradition”. This statement enraged a lot of people and everyone responded in their own way but the best argument was by our Malka-e-WTF who said in her vlog “They can’t stop to people love”. As soon as we watched the video, we were convinced and decided to put out a Valentine’s Day Playlist to help people to love people. But since Patari is a platform for everyone, we also put an Anti-Valentine’s Playlist for those who want to stop to people love. Check them out if you’re still drooling over bae or sad-ing over your single life.

Mujh Se Pehli Si Muhabbat Meray Mehboob Na Maang – Faiz Ahmad Faiz

This is what I texted bae on V-day when she asked about chocolates that I forgot to buy because everyone knows that pehli si muhabbat = chocolates. Thank you Uncle Faiz for penning this beauty. This week was also Faiz’s birthday (Feb 13) and we are celebrating it with Osman Raja’s ‘Hum Dekhain Gay‘, another gem by Faiz. (No, you can’t send this to the girl who said no to being your valentine).

Malang-e-Azam is the Backs!

Malang-e-Azam is back. Yassss. We’re talking about Asrar, who just released his new song “Malango”. Time to ​Mast Hua​​ in Malango?

Remember The Kominas? The 2005 punk-rock band that rose to cultural prominence for progressing the genre of ‘Muslim Punk’ in the US? The ones who produce music influenced with Turkish and Irani psychedelic rock, Punjabi folk, surf rock, reggae, disco and dub? Yeah, their album is right here. Front and samnay.

Bird Under Water

For Patari employees, there’s a high five moment when we upload and release an artist we love. It was sometime in 2011, when a member of qaum-e-Patari went to attend an Arooj Aftab concert and fell in love with Mann Kunto Maula. One of the most mesmerizing voices you’ll ever hear, Arooj makes you bae her music from the very first moment. iphone 5s remplacement écran It’s so soothing, we can’t find words to explain it.

Zohaib Kazi’s Ismail Ka Urdu Sheher

In case you missed it over the holidays, Zohaib Kazi’s album is out in full. The album features a roving cast of Karachi’s best musicians: Jaffer Zaidi, Zoe Viccaji, Sara Haider, Omran Shafique, Abbas Ali Khan among other.

The record was released with an accompanying graphic novel, and is a sketch of space, of the future, of the unchartered – most importantly of something new and different. In its newness the album retains a familiarity of early 2000s Pakistani pop. It has spiritual links to Coke Studio, as it does to Junoon’s Piya and to Vital Signs’ Hum Tum. This is an album of sound-scapes, but it still makes still, for great pop.

Kazi’s journey to this point is quite remarkable, and there is no doubt now that he ranks among the country’s best record producers.

This is Ahmer Naqvi in a profile on Kazi for the National:

In what was the first of many serendipitous moments, a friend noticed that three of the tracks he had made seemed to be hinting at a larger vision, and he encouraged Kazi to pursue it. Those three songs were part of a film soundtrack Zohaib was working on that had only one problem – there wasn’t any film. iphone 5s replacement screen Spurred by his friend’s encouragement, he decided to start writing the story he had wanted to be filmed.

Almost three years later, Kazi mailed a CD with one of his songs to Rohail Hyatt, one of Pakistan’s most acclaimed musicians and, at that time, the producer of the show that would define the last decade of Pakistani music – Coke Studio.
