Listen To NIJA’S DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU: JERSEY CLUB REMIXES

Published

on


DJ Flex
 puts a Jersey Club spin on the 10 songs from Nija’s debut solo project, Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You, including “Beautiful Lies,” which was recently singled out as a “must-hear” track by Billboard. The match-up is a fitting one as both artists hail from northern New Jersey, where the Jersey Club sound originated – DJ Flex was born in Newark and Nija in nearby Union. Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You: Jersey Club Remixes, released today by Capitol Records, also includes Nija’s original versions of the songs. Listen to “Beautiful Lies” (Jersey Club Remix) HERE. Download / stream Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You: Jersey Club RemixeHERE.

Producer DJ Flex (Felix Erwiah) has also remixed such artists as Drake, Yo Gotti, ZayHilfigerrr and Zayion McCall and collaborated with Afrobeats artists Stanley Enow, Davido, Toofan and others.

Released in late January, Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You has amassed over 15 million combined global streams. It found a place among the top 10 R&B Albums on Apple Music and in the top 50 of the all-genre album chart. Naming Nija one of the “15 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2022,” Billboard noted, “The 24-year-old multihyphenate showcases her expert R&B and drill mix on ‘Ease My Mind (Come Over), ‘ sultry melodies on ‘Finesse’ and lyrical panache on ‘On Call’…tantalizing.” Nija is also one of the Vevo DSCVR Artists To Watch 2022.

V Magazine, which recently placed Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You atop its list of the best new music, said, “With a cavalcade of smooth and polished…R&B and hip-hop beats and production choices, Nija comes in hard.” Teen Vogue observed, “Throughout the ten tracks, the singer-songwriter fuses the confident swagger of rap with modern R&B, priming herself for a takeover of the music industry.” RNGLDR said, “Graciously, she glides over the beats with a chilling effortlessness, spilling true emotion onto each track with her ever so silky register.” “The thing about Nija‘s debut project, Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You, is that it’s appropriately titled,” observed Rated R&B.

Nija had written scores of Billboard Hot 100 hits before she had even turned 21 Rolling Stone called her “one of music’s most sought-after songwriters.” Now the three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning contributor is gaining widespread acclaim for her own music and relishing in the freedom to fully express herself. People said, “the brain behind some of the biggest hits…is now ready to make a name for herself.”

Grammy and Juno Award-winning producer/engineer David Strickland releases his debut solo instrumental album Foundation

Published

By

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.
