Rishpal Singh ( , ) better known by his stage name Rishi Rich is a British Asian music producer born in Southallmarker, Englandmarker and based in Londonmarker. He is internationally known for his bhangra tracks as well as Hindi remixes. He is responsible for discovering British Asian talents who would later gain mainstream success, such as Jay Sean (one of the most successful British urban artists), Juggy D and Veronica Mehta (both successful in India), and Mumzy Stranger (first mainstream British Bangladeshi artist). He has also remixed various established mainstream artists such as Madonna, Britney Spears, Mis-Teeq, Craig David and Aqua's Lene Nystrøm. In the past, he has produced many remix albums, for example "Love 2 Love". Recently, he has produced two solo albums, including his most recent album The Project.

Music career

Collaborations and Solo Career

In the UK, Rishi worked with a number of Asian artists after getting his first break from San-j Sanj (xzecutive), Alex Jethwa & Pankaj Jethwa. He co-produced 10 Asian music albums before working on his first solo album ‘Simply Rich’, which debuted at No 1 in the Asian pop charts in October 2002 and remained in the top 5 for over six months - selling more than 50,000 copies within the UK alone. With ‘Simply Rich’, Rishi was able to fuse urban music and bhangra. The lead single from the album, “Nahin Jeena”, featured ragga MC Don D and up-and-coming vocalist Juggy D, who was later to join the 2Point9 stable. It also contained the song "Nahin Tere Jeha Hor Disda", which had a music video featuring cameo appearances by Bally Sagoo, Juggy D, Jay Sean and Veronica Mehta. The song was later used by the dance group Nemesis in the second series of Britain's Got Talent in 2008.

His second solo release, The Project, included the single Push It Up (Aaja Kuriye), which peaked at No 1 on the BBC Asian Network Chart [142927] as well as the Club Asia Essential 20 Chart [142928]. However, The Project was considered a commercial failure in the UK, though sales in his main markets of Dubai and India remained relatively strong and it was a critical success.

Rishi's third solo album is provisionally scheduled for late 2009.

Mainstream remixes

He produced the Top 10 hit “Roll On” for Mis-Teeq and also produced their track “This Is How We Do It” for the Ali G soundtrack. In addition, he wrote and produced four tracks for the Top 10 Mis-Teeq album “Eye Candy”, including the title track. He has remixed songs for artists as diverse as Britney Spears, Ricky Martin, Liberty X, Craig David, Mary J Blige, Westlife, Javine and UK rappers Fallacy and Estelle.

The Rishi Rich Project

In January 2003, Rishi Rich signed to management and within months formed the Rishi Rich Project, the objective of which was to showcase up-and-coming talent.

Through the Rishi Rich Project, the R&B singer-rapper Jay Sean and the Bhangra artist Juggy D were both discovered. The debut Rishi Rich Project record “Dance With You ” was released by Virgin Records in September 2003 and reached number 12 in the Official UK Singles Charts.

Jay Sean's debut album Me Against Myself spawned two Top 5 hits and Juggy's debut album became the first, and thus far only, Punjabi album to enter the national charts.

On 27 April 2007, Rishi announced that he was parting with his record company 2Point9[142929].

Rishi Rich Productions

Rishi Rich Productions Ltd (RRP) was created in April 2007 as a joint partnership between Rishi Rich and entertainment entrepreneur Waleed Jahangir. Soon after leaving 2point9, he revealed two new musical talents by the names of H-Dhami and Mumzy.

As Mumzy released two radio-only singles, Stranger and Let's Party, H-Dhami released three official singles with the supporting videos produced by XIX Film, Sadke Java, Mitran Di Jaan and Har Gabroo. After touring for almost a year, H-Dhami won Best Newcomer at the 2008 Asian Music Awards, even before the release of his album, which followed on July 18 of that year. A year later, he won the award for Best Act.

Mumzy has released two official singles, One More Dance and Showgirl, with his album due in late 2009.

Also signed to Rishi Rich Productions are Veronica, Tasha Tah and Juggy D.
