Some of the notable studio Albums (Recorded in AB Kitchen)

AB Kitchen is acting as a label, production company, management and agent. We have our own roster of
Artists that we choose, produce and nurture.
Project 1: DROCKSTARS
In Oct, 2005, eminent rock star Mr.Ayub Bachchu originally designed a program named 'AB Hunts Rockstars' to search some new singer talents throughout the country, and winning top 10 participants would perform songs composed by Mr.Ayub Bachchu in a studio album. Later, it was sponsored by Grameenphone's (Telenor), youth brand DJUICE, and due to the fact of sponsorship, the program
renamed as 'DJUICE hunts DRockstar'.
The first round of DRockstar, ended its first phase by short-listing 100 promising singers of Rock genre from around the country and Mr.Ayub Bachchu selected the competitors out of nearly one thousand participants by listening their audio records. In the next phase of the program, Mr.Ayub Bachchu selected 30 qualified competitors. A 12-episode TV program was telecasted in Bangladeshi private TV channel: Channel i which was the media partner and from there with the viewers voting through SMS, 15 participants were scrutinized for the final round. DRockstar winner was Shuvo, who got the highest SMS voting & judges were Ayub Bachchu and Ajam Khan, another band legend in Bangladesh. However, the Top 10 finalists got the chance to record an album with Ayub Bachchu, and it was produced by AB Kitchen.

Project 2: Rmusic
Rmusic was the solid brain child of Mr.Ayub Bachchu, which he generated in 2006. His main concept behind the program RMusic was to allow TV channel viewers to experience an acoustic performance show attending by the real time Singers & musicians, which would be live recorded into audio & visual system for subsequent broadcasting in TV channel. The uniqueness of RMusic focused heavily on introducing real time Bangladeshi music players/artists, and thus, 'RMusic' named from 'Real Music' concept by Mr.Ayub Bachchu. Perhaps, RMusic was the first time of any acoustic musical show in Bangladeshi private TV channels until 2006.
Ayub Bachchu expressed his idea of the show with a private TV Channel in Bangladesh, called Rtv, who agreed to broadcast the show in its channel.
For the first time, Mr. Ayub Bachchu hosted any TV show in RMusic with his guitars & other musicians (Romel on Drums, Shahin as rhythm guitar, Suman on Keyboard, Mithunl on percussion) and each program had an individual guest artist/Singer of Bangladesh. Most of them were popular singers like Azam Khan, Maksud ul Haq, Syed Abdul Hadi, Balam, Shakila Zafar, Kaniz Subarna, Shafin Ahmed, Bappa Mojumder, Syed Abdul Hadi, Subir Nandi, Aagun, Partho, Kona, Rupom, Hasan Abidur Reza Jewel etc. RMusic was a 26 episode shows which were broadcasted during ……………… to ……………… and the whole event was organized & produced by AB Kitchen.

Project 3: Sa 2 Sa
As the use of Synthesizers and electronic sounds increased in Bangladeshi music as same like other part of the world, notably many Bangladeshi acoustic local instrumentalists like Yusuf Khan (Sarod), Sunil Chandra De (Violin), Gazi Abdul Hakim (Flute locally made), Ekram Khan (Esraaj & Tar sanai), Sheikh Jalaluddin (Do tara), Dashorot (Deshi Dhol), Milon Bhatta Chariya (Tobla), Monir (Silver Flute & Saxophone), Debu Priyo (Tobla & percussion), Selina Khan (Setar) Shantanu (Harmonium), Munna (Mouth organ) etc., had been greatly discouraged by the situation. According to Mr. Yusuf Khan (Sarod player) who said in 'Sa 2 Sa', perhaps he was one of the last persons, who could play this instrument in Bangladesh and there was every chance instrument like Sarod would go into history of Bangladesh.
To create awareness of those local acoustic instruments to the new generation of Bangladesh as well as to encourage more opportunities for said instrumentalists by acknowledging their contribution in Bangladeshi music, Mr. Ayub Bachchu invented the program 'Sa 2 Sa'. On the show renowned local instrumentalists of the country performed, as well as took part in informal conversations. 'Sa 2 Sa' was a collective initiative, which provided the unique setting to share acoustic musician (local instrumentalists) as a solo artist with the host Mr. Ayub Bachchu & his guitars.
It aimed to bring together people who share enthusiasm in acoustic music regardless of any geographical or language barrier. 'Sa 2 Sa' the instrumental program have been greatly appreciated by many people from all the parts of Bangladesh including Bangladeshis from abroad till now.
|| The program was telecasted in private Tv channel: Channel i. Citycell sponsored the programme exclusively. AB Kitchen organized the musicians to make the program a success.
