Kissmet's fourth album, this truly captures the vibrancy, passion and power witnessed at the band's live performances. With some of the strongest songs in the set and alongside crowds recorded at some of the band's best gigs, Kissmet has produced an album that can only be described as uplifting, positive to the core and undeniably Bhangra Rock Fusion.
Songs deal with issues of love, village life, arranged marriages, passion and pride but all delivered in a way that effortlessly cross musical plains and platforms, entwining languages and furtively dancing through cultural divides. Kissmet has only one rule - that it HAS to be good, and this album has that ethos very close to heart.
A year in the making and using some of the best musicians the Singh Brothers have had the honour and pleasure working with, this is without doubt the best album to highlight the diversity and strength in depth that the band has to offer. From the power of Whole lotta Nachna to the delicate Rainbow's Gold, from the passion in Why Oi to the message of undying love in Don't stand in my way, the off the wall ideas in Channa to the hidden messages in Heer, and the joy in the title track, Kissmet are proud to present - Trippin' the Life Fantastic.

6 Dodge the Rain
Close your eyes and let Kissmet take you on a journey. The destination is yours to choose but to set you off in the right direction, we like to call this song Dodge the Rain.
Kissmet's version of the Kula Shaker classic. Sang in ancient Sanskrit, it's one of the band's favourite songs.
Take Channa Kithe Guzariah and mix it with Cream's Sunshine of your Love.Amazing.
9 Don't stand in my way
Be sure to check out the video on Youtube. Search for it, it's there.
10 Rainbow's Gold
A beautiful melodic song.
11 I need your love
This song is in 7/8, 4/4 and 3/4 time but sounds simple. A fantastic end to the album.
