Hailing from Conant Gardens Detroit, Waajeed’s productions through the years have been known as both inventive and genre-defying. Of recent years and with a more dance floor orientated mindset, Waajeed launched Dirt Tech Records as well as collaborating on tracks with Mad Mike Banks, Theo Parrish and Amp Fiddler.
Dirt Tech also formed the home for his Church Boy Lou EP, Make It Boom EP and will see many other original releases in 2017.
Waajeed’s music career gained prominence in 1991 when he formed hiphop’s Slum Village with T3, Baatin and J Dilla. Later, he created Bling 47, a label inspired by Motown and Underground Resistance which specialized in instrumental series from the likes of J Dilla, himself as well as forming a platform for developing artists. In search of a wider audience, he formed Platinum Pied Pipers in 2002 whose two albums on Ubiquity Records were hailed globally as musical treasures.
