KARACHI : There was a time when swat strain had small to no following in Pakistan. Muhammad Dar, popularly famous as Xpolymer Dar, has lived by that time as he has been composing music given 2005.
In 2010, he shaped a rope Rap Engineers in Islamabad, alongside Maddy Khan, Yaruq Malik and Ghauri, who serves as a audio engineer. The organisation has been creation waves in a subterraneous stage for years and recently held a courtesy of Team Backpack, one of a largest subterraneous hip-hop strain platforms in a world.
Team Backpack brought in Rap Engineers for a new strain that they featured on their platform. “We organized an eventuality called They-See Battle League that offering swat battles between artists. Team Backpack listened a lane Dangal and approached us to do a cypher for them,” Dar told The Express Tribune. “They are formed in a US though were looking to enhance worldwide. They have already branched out to Spain and The Philippines and with a lane They-See Cypher they directed to embody Pakistan as well.” Dar combined they brought in Hashim Nawaz for a cypher and are operative on some-more projects with Team Backpack currently.
With a Rap Engineers gaining a lot of hum underground, they were also set to combine with Pakistani-American rapper Lazarus. However, a devise fell detached due to a division from another artist, Bohemia. Dar confessed, “We had worked out a sum and were all set for a collaboration. On other hand, Lazarus was also going to combine with Bohemia. He was drifting to Pakistan and during his stopover in Turkey, he called and told us that Bohemia pronounced if Lazarus collaborated with a Rap Engineers, he won’t combine with him.”
Asked for a intensity reason behind Bohemia’s actions, Dar pronounced he was dumbfounded. “I have no idea, solely a fact that a lot of artists in a attention are insecure. Maybe when he saw that we were throwing some buzz, he got insecure. In fact, in a strain patrician CPEC, that we were ostensible to do with Lazarus, we transposed a hymn and combined a new one addressed to Bohemia.”
While that partnership fell apart, Dar is still bustling operative on bringing behind a They-See Battle League this year. “We had one in 2014 and in 2015. The third one was ostensible to occur in Dec final year though it got behind due to sponsorship issues. We are anticipating to move it behind this year.”

So, we can describe to a new guys entrance in and perplexing to infer themselves. That’s because we started They-See Battle League; we wish to support them in any way. I’m not earning income from this. In fact, we put in mine.”
Dar, who pioneered Sufi swat in Pakistan with songs fusing Baba Bulleh Shah’s kalams, defines Rap Engineers as an initial crew. “We play around with a lot of stuff. we did Sufi rap, brought in some ghazal so we would have to contend we are all about experimentation.”
