Baljit Singh “Bally” Sagoo was born on 19 May 1964 and is a British-Indian record producer and DJ. Born in Delhi, India, Sagoo was grown in Birmingham, England. He joined the recording and enjoyment industries in 1989. He is the figurehead of the UK/Belgium-based amusement corporation, Fresh Dope Industries.

Sagoo was raised in the Balsall Heath location of Birmingham. His dad Saminder Sagoo ran his own retail music doorway in the 1970s, after playing in The Musafirs in the late 1960s.

In his teens, Sagoo acquired a taste for soul reggae and disco. He consumed his college years producing mix-tapes for mates and deejaying at local platforms. These homemade products combined Western dance and hip hop with Indian music.

In 1989, Oriental Star Agencies, UK based record brand, requested him to remix a Punjabi track called “Hey Jamalo”. The single became a hit and Sagoo entered OSA as their full-time in-house producer. Via this connection, he unleashed his foremost album, Wham Bam which generated a sequel, Wham Bam 2. Additional material during this period contained Star Crazy and Sagoo’s 1991 partnership with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on Magic Touch.
