Bio

Melbourne producer, vocalist, and performer, IJALE, is a self-contained master of his sound. A
keen music fan and avid creator, he blends a myriad of Afrocentric sounds and western
influences that reflect his Nigerian heritage, his Australian upbringing, and the multifaceted taste
of an open-minded listener of the internet age. These concoctions vary in sound from piece to
piece, but are usually punctuated by hints of African percussion, infectious basslines and
layered electronic textures, all of which pay direct homage to the hallmark genres of black
creativity including Jazz, Soul, RnB, and of course Hip Hop.

This song makes me want to be covered in sweat, dancing with heaps of people at a club in Melbourne during the summer. The production is tight and cool, the beat is funky and I didn't stop moving from the moment the song started. I love Ijale and ThatKidMaz and I'm so excited they've created something this brilliant together!

The beat is good, the piano is even better, and the rest just delivers. Such a great hook.
