JUNO-Nominated Vancouver Band Releases Debut Music Video with MMA Champ

Vancouver, BC -- Canadian hip-hop group A-SLAM have collaborated with Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Gurdarshan 'Gary' Mangat for the release of A-SLAM's debut music video entitled "Back Down".

The fast-paced video features A-SLAM showcasing their music talents alongside Gary Mangat, the first Sikh featherweight to hold an MMA belt, showcasing his athletic talents. In addition to sharing a hometown of Vancouver, A-SLAM and Gary Mangat united for the "Back Down" music video under a common thread of pursuing one's dreams. While A-SLAM is trying to break in to the music industry, Gary is on his own mission to fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), and to become the first Sikh UFC fighter in the process.

A-SLAM is a JUNO Nominated artist, DJ, and production team who specialize in "fusion Hip-Hop", mixing the popular genre with South Asian, Latin, and Electronic influences. In addition to opening in Canada for some of the biggest names in urban and South Asian music including Jay Sean, Fat Joe, Apache Indian and Raghav, A-SLAM have toured Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and even performed for over 40,000 people at Ottawa's 2011 Canada Day celebrations.

After feature appearances on major Bollywood releases in India including "Twist and Shout" by Taz and "American Desi" by DJ Sanj, A-SLAM's debut album, also titled "Back Down", will be released later this month.

Nick Thalari/Chorus:
I know I can fly so put me back down down
I know I can try so put me back down down
I know I can change so put me back down down
Did I go insane, don't put me back down
I know I can grow, so put me back down down
I know I can go, so put me back down down
I know I can change, so put me back down down,
Did I make a change, put me back down

Back Down, Back Down, I won't,
Back Down, Back Down
Put me back down
Back Down, Back Down, No I won't,
Back Down, Back Down
Put me back down

They never said it would be easy,
Never said I'd be somebody
Never said it'd be a possibility
But I, I didn't think I would be bleeding
Didn't think I would be feening
Feeling Like a feen try na get that special feeling
And a, you never know if you will fail
Never know if you will bail
Never know your endeavors until you start to set sail
But can I keep grinding, Mr. West wasn't lying
Giving up is way harder than trying

Reminisce/Pre Chorus:
Dushman thahn thukhay sanu
dhoor dee nut thay nee
(Our enemies look and run far)
Chak dhayn ghay phate soneeaye
Chak dhayn ghay phate nee
(Let's do it girl, let's do it)
I'd never, back down from a challenge,
No matter, what the odds against me were,
Cuz I'd rather, try 'n fail, then not, and wonder
But I, will never fail, I will not go under
No wonder, they won't go toe to toe wit me
I'm not fun to, compete against,
Won't rest till I, defeat the rest
'N the people attest
That when I step into tha building, they say "He's The Best"

Pre Chorus

Pujdhay nu jaahn na dhayee aye
(You try to run but we don't let you)
Yaaran nu shaan nee dhayee aye
(We respect out friends)
Jina naal pyar aye sada, ona nu jaan nee dhay aye
(We will die for those who we love)
Jina naal pyar aye sada, ona nu jaan nee dhay aye
(We will die for those who we love)
Amen Panesar ureeaye, bharan bore dhee rukhay nee
(Amen Panesar saying, "watch out we know how to defend our selves")

Pre Chorus
