Rishi Rich Project feat Jay Sean & Juggy D - Dance With You (Relentless)
release date: 8 September 2003
You may not have heard of Rishi Rich but if you've ever bought a single by Mis-teeq or Craig David there's a fighting chance you'll have heard his expert production skills.
Dance With You is an attempt to capture the zeitgeist generated by the likes of Truth Hurts, Missy Elliott and Panjabi MC by fusing together bhangra and hip-hop beats into a danceable yet fairly relaxed vibe. The production is as crystalline as expected, while Jay Sean's genuinely soulful English voice and Juggy D's accomplished Punjabi rap combine with synergistic results.
On the downside, the chorus may not be convincing enough to carry the song forward to the chart eschelons it so obviously aspires to reside in. However, with the track having already caused a stir at Indo-music clubs up and down the country, it's unlikely that Rishi is going to end up as a poor little Rich kid.
