DJ Scheme & Danny Towers Drop “Paranoid” Ahead of New Album

Published

on

Tearing up the scene with their no-nonsense trap tracks, Danny Towers and DJ Scheme are Florida to the bone. Connecting for their first-ever joint album, the two close collaborators announce Safe HouseThe 14-track project expands upon the underground sound that Scheme and Towers helped foster, combining Towers’ gritty raps with a diverse complement of instrumentals. Welcoming guest spots from Babyface Ray (on single Trap Baby), and Florida rap heavy-hitters like Denzel CurryRobb Bank$Trapland Pat, and Loe ShimmySafe House arrives on June 23rd via TC Music / EMPIRE.

The upcoming tape is home to the viral single  Florida Water” ft. Luh Tyler & Ski Mask The Slump God, which earned praise from XXLStereogumHotNewHipHop, and more. “Florida Water” inspired a photo dump trend on TikTok, where creators drop the hottest selfies in their Photos app as the beat drops and Danny’s infectious hook, “Threw him in that water, I’m from Florida, but my wrist Cuban,” gives way to Luh Tyler’s croaking verse. Peaking at #1 on TikTok’s trending charts, the song generated over 200k video creations on TikTok, over 14 million streams on Spotify, and reached the top spot on SoundCloud’s daily chart.

Along with the announcement of the tape, Towers & Scheme share Paranoid,” a new single. Produced by South Florida sound architect Ronny J, the song rides a stuttering synth pattern, incorporating boss battle synth strings and haunting vocal samples to back up Towers’ trash talk. Powering through the beat with blunt force, Towers balances his ferocious flexes with a peek inside his paranoid mindset: “Had a n**** too paranoid, can’t sleep, got me laying with a stick under the covers/I’m in that water, I’m way too deep, but I promise I’ll die for my brothers.” 

Rising in the Florida rap scene that helped birth the SoundCloud underground, the creative relationship Danny Towers and DJ Scheme reaches back over half a decade. Born and raised in Orlando, Towers has been a member of the Members Only and Very Rare collectives since 2015, regularly collaborating with the likes of Ski Mask The Slump GodXXXTentacion, and more. Palm Beach native DJ Scheme worked his way into the scene as a DJ and producer, starting his career as a tour DJ for wifisfuneral before linking up with the Members Only crew shortly afterward.

The duo first officially connected on Scheme’s debut EP PRESEASONserving up the upbeat “RVD” and the massive underground hit “How You Feel? (Freestyle), featuring Ski Mask The Slump God and Lil Yachty, which generated over 100 million on-demand streams en route to GOLD certification by the RIAA. Towers appeared on multiple highlights from Scheme’s FAMILY album, including “E-ER” which reunited the four artists behind “How You Feel?” and once again went GOLD. Both Towers and Scheme are fixtures at Rolling Loud Festival, performing at nearly every event since its founding in 2015.

With more music on the way, Scheme and Towers aim to remind the world that Florida still runs the underground. Stay tuned for more.

Grammy and Juno Award-winning producer/engineer David Strickland has released his debut solo album Foundation viaMNRK Music, a 20 track instrumental project that seamlessly blends his hip hop-fuelled musical inspirations over the years. Boasting production credits with a who’s who of rap superstars including DrakeEPMDThe ClipseDef SquadMethod ManKardinal OffishallSaukratesMaestro Fresh Wes and many more, Foundation arrives as a follow up to his last critically-acclaimed 2022 release Spirit of Hip Hop: Elements album, and its prior accompanying series, that celebrated, showcased and highlighted a wide range of North American rap icons alongside emerging Indigenous rappers. “This album represents the first time I did something musically that was just strictly by myself. No MCs or singers. Just me alone. Producer and engineer,” explains the Scarborough-born producer/engineer who has quietly worked behind the scenes for decades, producing, mixing and/or engineering records from the likes of Canadian urban music legends including Glenn LewisGhetto ConceptJelleestoneChoclair and k-os. “I was in NYC going through beats in the studio and I was looking at the last two albums I released and the instrumental versions, and it made me think about how guys like DJ Muggs and The Alchemist have been doing instrumental albums for years. I spoke to my A&R and VP about the idea, and then locked myself in the studio and banged out and revamped a couple beats and it just all came together.” 

Strickland pays homage to his neighborhood roots on “Scarboro Forever”, and references his career sustenance on “The Journey”, but what lies at the core of the highly rhythmic, breezy and boom bap-inspired production on Foundation, is that at its core, it reminds listeners of what it takes to make a hit record – the production, which is the foundation. But the album title carries deeper layers of meaning. “Music is the foundation of any song, and I am a part of the foundation of the ‘Toronto Sound’. Any good project needs a solid foundation. And say what you want about me, but I’m a finisher. I always deliver.” Foundation delivers on all fronts, and appeals to music lovers of many stripes, as its contemporary sonic edges are rounded out nicely by its timeless classic old school musical sensibilities.
