As well as Bhangra, DCS also perform in Hindi and English.

Impact on Bhangra[edit]

DCS are seen as the predecessors to and have influenced modern day bands such as B21 and many more.[citation needed] Shin is seen as one of the most prominent Bhangra vocalists from England.[citation needed]

DCS are also one of the most respected bands in the industry due to their lack of variation between their recordings as opposed to other live bands and their live performances.[citation needed]

In 2005 DCS won "Best Group" at the UK Asian Music Awards.[1] In 2008 Shin was awarded an "Outstanding Achievement" award at the UK Asian Music Awards for his work with DCS.[2]
