The in-demand producer builds a hip-hop wave with a stellar cast.
Navy Black is what DJ Sliqe describes as a bridge between Injayam Vol 1 and 2. “We were working on Injayam Vol 2 but then the direction went somewhere else. It’s too much of a gap between the first and second album so we had to do Navy Black to kind of bridge the gap.”
Although it is still mainly hip hop and trap, there is a balance between the vernacular and English on the album to cater for a wider audience.
The 11 track offering is surprisingly dainty when it comes to the features. DJ Sliqe did however manage to capture the balance between the more established artists and the new and up and coming ones- something he has mastered in the past.
L-Tech from Raplyf’s TLT, Louisa Tlali and Chaianosky were pleasant surprises who stood their own on their respective joints. Kwesta, Emtee, MarazA, AKA and international artist Sy Ari Da Kid brought with them their effortless styles which are seamless against Sliqe and Makwa’s production skills.
