January 25th 2020, marks the release of Shaheeda Sinckler’s first solo album called «Re-Up» with a launch on 23rd of January at Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh. Bassy trap sits side by side with lo-fi hip hop and heavy grime features beats by
$1000 Wallet, Inkke and Kami-O, AJM, T.Morgan & Evil M, all local producers based in Scotland, complemented with imagery of drunken street fights, a twisted game of
Monopoly and sniper staring down the viewfinder.
DJ Scotia is about sharing music that excites and inspires. It’s about looking into the past and looking into the future and merging different sounds to create a continuous mix. Blending genres and following instincts but favouring a dark, bass-heavy atmosphere.
Nova Scotia is a sample-based production and performance project, a way to seek emotional and audible truth through music and live sets, a way to manipulate samples to create an experience. A marriage of grime, electronic and acapella. The debut EP, AL-HAQQ, was released in April 2018.
