Mentor Takes Music Stateside (from Ealing Times)

Mentor Remix to Appear on Timbaland's UK Single

The Ealing Times (UK) reports that a remix of Timbaland and Magoo's single, "Cop That Disc," done by Asian remixer/DJ Mentor, will appear on their upcoming UK release.

Mentor, 25, whose studio is based in Wadsworth Road, Perivale, and brother of famed Asian producer Rishi Rich was approached by US rappers Timbaland & Magoo's record company Blackground Entertainment to re-mix their next single called Cop That Disc. Record Company bosses loved Mentor's version so much that his remix will now be available on the single's general UK release next week.

This track has already been receiving heavy airplay on both the Bobby Friction and Nihal show on BBC1, and on The Panjabi Hit Squad's show on BBC 1xtra. Incidentally, PHS announced on their show last week that they might be in attendance (along with Apache Indian and Bhangra singer Bikram Singh) at the upcoming 11th annual Bhangra Blowout competition in Washington D.C. (The largest South Asian student run competition in the world.)
