Google+ Beathearts: Sonnymoon - Houstalantavegas / DeDe - Phantom (Waajeed Refixes)


Sonnymoon - Houstalantavegas / DeDe - Phantom (Waajeed Refixes)

Waajeed brings more heat through bling47. This time with two mellow refixes featuring Sonnymoon and DeDe. Be sure to check out the site regularly as Waajeed drop bombs almost every day, especially the amazing series "Dilla Breaks" where producers breaks down Dilla beats and share stories and memories about the G.O.A.T. James Yancey.

I first heard about Sonnymoon at SXSW while hanging with No and Meezy from blindiforthekids.  They played their rendition of Drake’s, “Houstalantavegas” and I was instantly hooked.

Seeing that the duo doesn’t need a third leg producer, the only way I could work with them was do a remix.  We connected, they sent the vocals, and the rest is history… or at least history in the making.

@sonnymoon I’d love to work with you guys more in the future. Mucho respect. Until then, check this bling47 exclusive gem. They have new material dropping this spring and currently on tour.

Check Plug Research for the dates.

The irony of one of my happiest finds last year just happened to be in the worst place.  Rent so high that all the real artists moved out, hipster heaven Williamburg, Brooklyn — The Burg.We were introduced by my homie JT Donaldson that I used to DJ with at the W Hotel in Union Square.  I met Tim K there and later met his darling partner in crime, Dede Reynolds.  Together they are DeDe.

One late night after several Cadillac margaritas inspired by Dam Funk, we stumbled back to their apartment where I heard their yet to be released project.  WHOA!  I asked to remix the single on the spot.  That was the genesis of a brewing relation that would turn into a group (more about that later). In the meanwhile have a listen.

No need to rip the youtube.  Newsletter subscribers will get this in their box tomorrow.
