WAAJEED

Waajeed: a decorated creative in so many fields from soul to techno, he's played a critical role in the leftfield, abstract and experimental sides of hip-hop, pop and all things unclassifiable in between. Now he is focused on his home - Detroit - on his label with his first electronic productions under his artist name.

Hailing from Conant Gardens Detroit, Waajeed's productions through the years have been known as both inventive and genre-defying. Of recent years and with a more dance floor orientated mindset, Waajeed launched Dirt Tech Records as well as collaborating on tracks with Mad Mike Banks, Theo Parrish and Amp Fiddler.

Dirt Tech also formed the home for his Church Boy Lou EP, Make It Boom EP and will see many other original releases in 2017. Now playing home to his new EP Shango.

Waajeed's music career gained prominence in 1991 when he formed hiphop's Slum Village with T3, Baatin and J Dilla. Later, he created Bling 47, a label inspired by Motown and Underground Resistance which specialized in instrumental series from the likes of J Dilla, himself as well as forming a platform for developing artists. In search of a wider audience, he formed Platinum Pied Pipers in 2002 whose two albums on Ubiquity Records were hailed globally as musical treasures.
