Uth Records is a rising platform aimed at showcasing talent from Pakistan. The press conference held a few weeks back commemorated the 10-year anniversary of a telecom service and unveiled Uth Records.
With Zeeshan Parwez from Sajid and Zeeshan appointed as director for Uth Records television shows, Louis J Pinto as producer and artistes like Omran Shafique from Mauj on board, the platform intends to find talent and showcase their forthcoming prospects in the music industry.
And now with the advent of the first show on February 18, Uth Records has signed on their first band. A Karachi-based underground rock band Jumbo Jutt has aspired to give audiences more than just regular melodies. They’ve taken it up a notch by making music with a message.
Formed in 2009, Jumbo Jutt’s young lineup includes Mohammad Ali Suhail on vocals and lead guitar, Syed Saad Shams on bass, Adeel Hussain on drums and Omar Kapadia on rhythm guitar. The band has also previously won the Lipton Battle of the Bands.
Speaking for the band, vocalist and lead guitarist of Jumbo Jutt said, “The right pieces seem to be falling into place … It’s just the right mix of hands on and letting us do what we do. They’ve (The Uth Records Team) been very helpful and constantly try to cater to what we want the song to turn out like and giving honest advice when required. Being a part of this platform is still somewhat surreal to me. I feel we’re in good hands and hopefully this will help us go a long way.”
Uth Records producers are reportedly very impressed with Jumbo Jutt’s performance and said, “The band’s performance was a lot of fun. They (Jumbo Jutt) walked in quite confident with the right attitude and approach. We really appreciate the arrangement and lyrical content for the song.”
With the song completion, Uth Records has finally put together their first episode with underground Uth band Jumbo Jutt. “The Uth Records first episode with Jumbo Jutt is set to air on February 18 Friday,” said the producers of Uth Records.
Stay tuned and turn up the volume because Uth Records is set to create waves in the music industry.
