Biography

Djinn is an acclaimed singer, producer, songwriter and artist developer. Born in Oxford (UK), his father, being of Asian and Puerto Rican origin felt best for his son to have an eastern upbringing so subsequently Djinn moved to Pakistan at the age of 5. A wise decision as Djinn was taken through a journey that shaped him to be the man he is today. Surrounded by eastern spirituality and his natural love for music, Djinn journeyed through phases of life and the influences along the way have resulted in him developing a unique unorthodox style.

Since his return to the UK in 1992 Djinn has been involved in music as lead singer in a local school band and has been involved in music community work. This gradually evolved to being a full time DJ to fund his development as an artist. Djinn worked with numerous producers who offered him production deals but he never felt entirely comfortable as no producer he worked with could develop the sound he was trying to create.

Later on Djinn completed a degree in Computer Science and Music Technology. Since learning the art of music production, Djinn has worked with numerous artists globally on projects for Film, TV, Radio, and other media, and continues to develop artists regularly.

Djinn collaborated with Mukhtar Sahota on a charity project entitled Donasian. Djinn featured in the video and became known as “the guy in the white hoodie.” This expanded his fan base and earned him credibility on the Asian music scene.

Djinn met record producer Tom Linden. This immediately sparked an explosion of collaborative high. People have defined this style as smooth with a mellow groove to soothe. The combined production skills of Djinn and Tom Linden have set forth almost a brand new genre of music; Djinn terms the style as ‘E Vibe' - with the ‘E' standing for ‘Eclectic or Eastern Vibes.'

This led to the debut album by Djinn titled ‘Just A Thought.' As joined forces for this project, Djinn and Tom Linden are known under the moniker “The Godfathers.”

Five carefully selected artists were chosen from around the world to perform on the album ‘Just A Thought' with Djinn. They were selected for their strengths in order to successfully deliver the message. The message? The songs will make sense to different listeners at different phases in their life. The five collaborating artists are Sonia Panesar, Mehi, Manifest, Sumeet and Quest [Black Caz].

The album is like a musical diary that will give the listener an insight into a life of a man who went through hell but kept walking. This album is the sound of the scars remaining from those burns.

Just A Thought

Written By: Saqib Choudry Djinn

Godfathers, Djinn, Manifest giving you our worldview listen

They say the game doesn’t change; only the players do
As God hears the quietest prayers too
It’s all in the same no sun no rain no joy without pain
Why do the good die young as the young die good, tell me
Why does a lie hurt so much less than the truth?

What happened to respect for life? Tell me what is the worth
I value every living human and animal on earth
Many don’t though won’t grow without an open mind
I philosophize in my vibe interpret them signs
Why are all men created equal but live the opposite
Why all the suffering I pray for the impoverish
Is hell or heaven on earth, does anyone care about
The who what how why when and where

Its getting colder wrap up love is falling
Evil on a rise no surprises calling
But it was written and so will be done

There’s 2 sides to life but you only see 1

Its getting colder wrap up love is falling
Evil on a rise no surprises calling
But it was written and so will be done

They call us mankind, so tell me, where is man’s kindness
So many blessing you don’t even recognise or acknowledge
The lord works in mysterious ways to man
Of his image but can’t rationalise the plan
So some seek religion Jew Sikh Muslim or Christian
Not about what you claim it’s about how you’re living
So I pray everyday to my God for strength
For my sins I repent cus his love is blessed
There’s an answer to every question you can dream
It’s never the black or white but the grey in between
So analyse

Nuclear zones within our homes
Messed up world corrupt past
When will we learn to love one another if where gonna last
Am I dying to smoke or am I smoking to die
I wanna see the world again through the eyes of a child
It’s getting colder wrap up love is falling
Evil on a rise no surprises calling
But it was written and so will be done

There’s 2 sides to life but you only see 1

Its getting colder wrap up love is falling
Evil on a rise no surprises calling
But it was written and so will be done

L.I.F.E take away the L and the E

What if, what if

Why can’t we live a 1?
You see, some people ask why, some of us ask why not.

Just a thought

Think outside of the box

Is Duniya meh
In this World

Its getting colder wrap up love is falling
Evil on a rise no surprises calling
But it was written and so will be done

There’s 2 sides to life but you only see 1

Its getting colder wrap up love is falling
Evil on a rise no surprises calling
But it was written and so will be done

Its getting colder wrap up love is falling
Evil on a rise no surprises calling
But it was written and so will be done

There’s 2 sides to life but you only see 1

Its getting colder wrap up love is falling
Evil on a rise no surprises calling
But it was written and so will be done
