EP: ‘#TeckAfroBootlegs’ By Teck-Zilla (@ProjektCancer)

“The last time we heard from Teck-Zilla the Nigerian-born, Montreal-based beatsmith had released ‘Son Of Sade: An Ode‘, an 18-minute instrumental tape honoring both the titular British/Nigerian singer and the artist’s own mother (also named Sade) . Now, the Str8 Buttah founder revisits his home country with Teck Afro Bootlegs, a compilation of Afro Funk-inspired remixes of some of the year’s biggest songs in Nigeria, including fast-paced, percussion-based mash-ups of Yemi Alade’s “Johnny” and the Ice Prince x AKA Collab “N Word Remix” What do you think?”

“Commenting on how his Nigerian heritage influenced his latest project Teck explained, “I draw so much inspiration from my roots. It’s such a boundless pool of talent and inspiration, I just had to tap some inspiration from back home.” The five-track EP is a thumping, undeniably danceable mix. “This is a huge segue in terms of my Hip-Hop production style,” Teck says. “Having been influenced by the incredibly talented Beatmeisters, here in the Montreal music scene, I’ve slowly resurrected my love for Techno/House music.” On the dubstep-infused opener “Stop, Look, Listen (Gidi House Maf Guy Bootleg)” and the MJ-esque third track “Working Day & Night (Midnight In Lagos Bootleg)” show, Teck immerses himself in the techno/house scene to jumpy effect. Listen to the premiere of Teck Afro Bootlegs below. For more, grab Teck-Zilla’s Sade-sampled beat tape and his Isaac Hayes-sampling “L.O.V.E.” anthem.” –Okayafrica
