Akkamage – The Keys
Goyang goyang – Tamila Boys
Ring Ting Ting – Lock Up
Raman VS Ravan – Boomerangx
With Raman VS Ravan, it was love at first listen. The layering, the featured singers, the lyrics, and our favourite part, “Step, step by step, step in step, step by step. Move your body!” Now, don’t pretend like you haven’t danced to that line while you were alone in your room way back when! Oh and, you can do it now too, because they’re on Spotify!
Malaysia Makkal – Kashmir Stone
Kashmir Stone is the Rajinikanth of Malaysian Tamil music. Established in the 90s, this band was led by Brahma and was the FIRST TAMIL HEAVY METAL BAND! Their first album, Maanga Thopu was released in 1999 to rave reviews. They then came up with the album Nande Kathey which boasted this fantastic tune. This song was such a hit that it played on ALL radio stations at the time! We also love their other tunes, Mega Serial, Maanga Thopu and Rozana. “India Cina Melayu Asli ellam, otrumaiyaga vaalurom!”
Natpu Illai – Chakra Sonic
From Chakra Sonic’s album, Kalai Oru Por, this song reminds us of Eminem’s Stan. But the comparison ends there. Perhaps it is the beauty of the Tamil language, or the haunting voice of the female artiste, this song really makes you want to layan it with your eyes closed.
