“Nia” – DaVillins & DJ Skizz (Ruckdown | Brownsville) Remix Challenge Submission + Free download of Mr Kuyateh’s Version

 

DaVillins (Brownville|RuckDown) recently dropped a dope track prod. by DJ Skizz called “Nia”, which is a dope track for the ladies and pays tribute to Nia Long.

The track is on their latest EP #Cashmeredice which dropped on April 7th. To have fun with promotion, they put the word out for a #niaremixchallenge and I responded with this remix which includes a Marvin Gaye sample flip.

The fun part was creating an experience around the production and hoping that the listener is able to connect with it.  Mixing the layers and then mastering was a bit of a challenge but the sounds seem to resonate accordingly.

Let us know what you think of Mr Kuyateh’s and check out their latest release Cashmere Dice.  Bless up

August REMIX CONTEST: Gibril & BRC “What You See” ft. M1 (DEAD PREZ)

All right night owls, you know how this goes.

Get ya head right, turn the equipment on and fire up that computer.

The Brooklyn Word (TBW) invited Gibril, one of BK’s hardest working African’s reppin’ Ghana, to the Crown Heights dojo (yes his name is Gibril as well).

A few weeks prior he asked if I wanted to do a remix for his M1 featured track “What You See”.  I said it sounded like a dope idea and that I’d check it out which I did.  We’ve been talking about linking for years, but things were aligned with both our schedules.

After listening and thinking about it, an idea do something fun sparked in my head.  Partly because it creates creative/artistic competition and expression.  Not to mention that I’m a very fair warrior who doesn’t mind being in the “sound pit” with all of you dope ass producers that’s catching this contest.

So I told him, “lets open it up to everyone, but i’m still gonna submit” and proceeded to unveil the mini multi-media/brand concept that you now see.  I kept it 100, saying I want to be apart of it but I’m completely cool if another producer wins.  He got amped, like thats what’s up boom, TBW filmed him a week later.11093088_1587003951570966_1843332385_n

We discussed his latest project “Gibril & BRC present The Foreigner – JJC (deluxe)” and the plans to expand the remix contest.
