Artist Bio

Imran Khan was born 28 May 1984. He is born in The Netherlands in a city called The Hague. His parents came from the city of Gujranwala, Punjab in Pakistan and settled in The Hague in the early 1970’s.

Khans love for music was evident from a very early age. He started his career in his early teenage years. In 2005 Khan met up with an old friend called Shahid Mazhar who is based in United Kingdom. It was here when Khan showed his abilities to Shahid. Shahid was impressed with what he had heard and decided to take Imran to Pakistan.

Later that year Shahid took Imran to Lahore in Pakistan to give his music a kick start and to complete his first album working with the biggest and most popular music production teams in Pakistan. After working day and night in the studio for almost 2 months a 8 track album was mastered. However, after hearing the final product Khan was not impressed with the the album. But did not want to mention this to Shahid as he felt alot of time and money was invested in this album and did not want any negative feedback. But after hard thinking Khan decided to be honest and explained his reasons for not being happy and content with the album. He thought the album was too traditional for his sound and decided not to go ahead with this. Shahid agreed with Khans thoughts and ideas and decided that this album would not be released.

This left Khan very confused and low in self esteem. But Khan didn’t give up on his passion for music and so thought of other ideas to pursue his dream.

Khan returned from Pakistan to the Netherlands in early 2006. After a series of meetings and discussions they decided to give the album a more urban feel if they were to make a big impact.

In mid 2006 Khan came to the UK, to work on his debut single. But it was the same old story and again Khan was not happy with the final product. Shahid was beginning to think that this might be a waste of time and effort, which was hard to take for Imran. Khan was now back to square one and was very low in confidence. Khan made his way back to Holland back to the drawing board. Later that year Khan met up with a friend ( Fikret) and explained the situation and events that have occurred in the last few months. Fikret had advised Imran that he knew a Turkish producer called Eren E, and who could possibly be the answer to your solution.

Fikret contacted Eren E and introduced Imran to him at his house. After hours of talking and discussing music Imran had found his right sound through Eren E. In the next few days Eren E invited Imran to his house were they created a quick demo named ‘ Ni Nachleh ‘. Imran and the team were confident and knew that this sound was what they was looking for.

On the 12th July 09 Prestige records released ‘Amplifier ‘which would be Khans second OFFICIAL release. Amplifier quickly became the most played song on all major TV stations and radio stations across the globe, and had hit the 2 million view mark on Youtube in only 1 week. It currently stands at almost 14 million hits.

A few months later after the amazing success of Amplifier , Prestige released ‘ Bewafa ‘ on the 30th November. Khan decided to release this track as it was a complete opposite of his previous tracks.
