Slyck’s Artist In Focus : Fateh’s Grind Thus Far

Fateh had a fantastic 2016, largely due to the efforts he put in his album, ‘Bring It Home‘. The album was released in September and was loved by fans all over the world and the track, ‘Fame’ from the album was trending on social media for quite some time, also my personal favourite.

Prior to the album, Fateh dropped 3 mixtapes ‘California State of Mind‘, ‘One Verse Curse’, and ‘Mr. Wall Street’. It was these bodies of work which helped him in building a rock solid fan base. He has experienced a multi cultural upbringing, he was born in Bangkok to Punjabi parents from Jalandhar. His family moved to Hayward, California, U.S when he was just six years old. It was there where he encountered Hip-Hop music for the first time. Just when he started settling in, his family relocated to Toronto, Ontario in Canada. This is where he developed his sound and started shaping his career as a rapper. Initially, he called himself Young Fateh and later changed it to Fateh Doe.

A few sources have mentioned that Fateh was a fan of Dr. Zeus and he once tried to meet him after a concert in a nightclub in California, so he could give him CDs of his mixtape. Serendipity is a funny thing and in 2012, Fateh was in the limelight when he was discovered by Dr. Zeus and they ended up working on several tracks together. He joined the band “Zoo Babies” and was part of their debut project. Fateh since then has been approached by several artists including Amrinder Gill, Jaz Dhami, The PropheC and Gippy Grewal to work with them. He has also sung the song “Lovely” from 2014 Bollywood film Happy New Year.

In August 2015, he released his debut solo single ‘Naiyo Jaan De’ from his album, ‘Bring it home’ and everyone had been patiently waiting for the album since. He had also received four nominations ‘Breakthrough Act’, ‘Best North American Act’, and ‘Best Urban Asian Act’ at 2015 Brit Asia Music Awards. Fateh is a force to be dealt with and is one the best Punjabi rappers out there.
