You learn quick when you’re the 18 year-old keyboard player in the Jazzy B band. You have to … playing along side Punjabi folk A-listers like Sukshinder Shinda and Joggers. The first few rehearsals were like sparring with Tyson but pretty soon Popsy was up to speed.
Fast forward three years and Popsy’s musicianship was on the next level, giving him the confidence to make music of his own. Heavy Duty, Larger Than Life and Bangin’,these were the three albums that established Popsy’s name as a respected producer.

Most producers would keep the ball rolling at this point but Popsy decided to take a two year break. He needed to recharge his batteries and ramp up his Logic skills.
He came back with a bang (Jazzy B – Naag 2 ) and a whole new approach of “less is more” and featuring a stripped down desi vibe. From that point onwards there has been a constant demand for his signature sound, you can hear this on his work with Gippy Grewal, Surjit Khan, Subaig Singh and Saini Surinder to name a few.
Some producers find it difficult to move away from their signature sound, after all, its their comfort zone, and its what their audience expects them to sound like, but thats not how Popsy sees it. He can think outside the Desi box, and into the Trap inspired styles more likely to be coming out of Canada or India. Check Subaig Singh’s Tiger or Sarjan.
And that’s why you’ll be hearing from The Music Machine for many years to come!
