Our man Waajeed recently joined forces with Brooklyn-based indie-duo DeDe and created this spacious, atmospheric remix of their joint “Phantom.” Hit the jump to read what Jeedo had to say about how this project came about.
The irony of one of my happiest finds last year just happened to be in the worst place. Rent so high that all the real artists moved out, hipster heaven Williamburg, Brooklyn — The Burg.We were introduced by my homie JT Donaldson that I used to DJ with at the W Hotel in Union Square. I met Tim K there and later met his darling partner in crime, Dede Reynolds. Together they are DeDe.
One late night after several Cadillac margaritas inspired by Dam Funk, we stumbled back to their apartment where I heard their yet to be released project. WHOA! I asked to remix the single on the spot. That was the genesis of a brewing relation that would turn into a group (more about that later). In the meanwhile have a listen…Rejoice. -Jeedo
