demahjiae talks legendary bass player great grandfather, the influence of video game soundtracks, a pivotal tech deck rejection, and performs “Succotash” live in studio
When ovrkast. came through last year, demahjiae came with him to the studio. I wasn’t hip yet, but ovrkast. promised me he was next up. He was right!
demahjiae’s 2020 release “And, Such Is Life.” boosted itself right into my favorite albums of the year upon it’s release. The self-produced opus features a litany of guests that stay in my rotation (Navy Blue, Pink Siifu, Zeroh, ovrkast.), thoughtfully cohesive production, and constantly inward facing lyricism. It’s well worth your time and truly shows the potential for a long-lasting and impactful career.
Tune in to hear us talk about legendary bass player great grandfather, the influence of video game soundtracks, and a pivotal tech deck rejection.
