The Sounds of Waajeed


Waajeed is as Detroit as they come. A legendary figure in the Michigan underground, the producer has put his stamp on everything from hip hop - as a founding member of J Dilla's Slum Village - to house and techno. In this exclusive mix for Sónar 2019, he shows off some of the influences and energy behind his recent LP "From the Dirt": disco, funk, gospel house and a drop of acid.

In his own words:

"This mix is composed from some of my favorites tunes in my playlist at the moment. Lacing together different colors and textures are the basis of my work. Combining songs that are brilliant by themselves are better when balanced by it's opposite. Enjoy."

Catch Waajeed at Sónar by Night on Sat 20th July.
