A MOVING tribute in memory of a popular DJ has topped a download chart.
The grieving brother of Unkar Singh, better known as DJ Unkz, released a charity tribute track on the one year anniversary of his death last month.
Days after the single's release on Wednesday, February 15, it entered the official Asian Download Chart at number one and topped other local station and download charts.
Aman, DJ Unkz's older brother and single producer, said: "I didn't really expect it to do that well, but it is brilliant people took the time to watch the video and download the single.
"I wanted to do it for my brother and got a lot of love and support from people.
"My brother always wanted to be number one and now, in a way, we have done it with him there in spirit. But I know he would have liked it to be with a more upbeat song."
The single, produced by the 27-year-old, of Warrington Drive, Slough, was released a year after the 25-year-old, who was a well-respected DJ with Kudos Music, suddenly became ill on St Valentine's Day and died the following day on a family trip to India for his brother's wedding.
The track entitled 'DJ Unkz Tribute', features vocals by well-known Punjabi singer Dev Dhillon, who worked with Aman on the lyrics.
The heart-warming single, raising funds for the Child Brain Injury Trust, is still available for download on iTunes for 79p.
