North London siblings Manoj and Kamini Tailor release their latest Hindi hit
M2K are a brace of North London siblings, Manoj and Kamini Tailor. Their style and focus is unique – embracing Bollywood, UK House, R’n’B and Pop with deep grooves – drawing from everyone from Bollywood superstars Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle to Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson and Mariah Carey.
Influenced by both their mother and father, Manoj and Kam were encouraged to explore and draw from the best of both cultures – which in turn, has helped them to develop their own unique and unusual sound. The aural soundscapes they capture are magnificent, cool yet understated and subtly stunning with strong filmic qualities.
A dream came true for M2K when they were asked to perform for the man Mr Quincy Jones himself at a red carpet party in London – and in Quincy’s words – they ‘Smashed it’!
Musically, Manoj plays as many instruments as possible – but is currently really enjoying the piano. He also produces some mighty big tunes in his studio, still based in North London – Kam is currently perfecting her singing and learning to master the harmonium.
Manoj says: “The first song I produced was called M2K Phenomenon. It was No1 on Zee Music for 4 months and broke Club Asia chart records by remaining in the Top 20 for almost five months. My second single M2K Bekaraar hit the number 1 spot on Club Asia for 7 weeks.”
He adds: “Four songs from our debut album were shortlisted for the best 50 tracks of the year in 2007. More recently we have released tracks like Nach Mere Naal, Yeh Dosti and Deewana which was No2 on Luv Asia for 3 weeks and all were playing on the airwaves worldwide”.
Kam and Manoj are back with some awesome tunes – just as you would expect from such a talented pair. Their new single ‘Tujhe Pyar’ is available now from iTunes and other digital platforms. The track is sure to garner keen UK and international attention.
