Being a good producer is not just about cutting good tracks. It's about producing an artist! It's having the ability to create a sound around the artist's image and to create this image in collaboration with the artist. When the artist and the producer are on this same wavelength, there is no limit on the creative flow. The "one" and only focus is to make more music! You then find yourself not just making tracks.
The first Shakalaka release is a perfect blend of Chris Piper's and Jean-Marc Brissat's Musical influences, coming from all African roots and conscious lyrics.we wanted to give a new feel to what toasting usually might sound like and try to get all kind of different vibes from Zouk to African beats Mixed with RnB, house, reggae or Arabic Influence.
