Kenna - Sleep When We Die (Prod by Danja)


Time flies in music-land. It seems like yesterday that we broke news of a forthcoming collaboration between Danja and fellow Virginia artist Kenna. Well, after a few hiccups in the space-time continuum, we finally get to hear the result of the unbelievable 2013 Kenna-Danja galactic collision.

Today, Kenna's newest track, "Sleep When We Die," debuted on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 program around 1pm Eastern Standard Time. Here it is in its entirety:



Some longtime Danja fans may be taken aback by the production, which initially reflects a more traditional alternative style reminiscent of his work with Duran Duran ("Box Full O' Honey," anyone?), Cody Simpson ("Crazy But True"), and Jennifer Lopez ("Starting Over").

Over the past few weeks, Kenna has been leading up to the release of his Land 2 Air Chronicles III with annotated editions of past recordings and impassioned posts on his Facebook page. In one, he mentioned Danja:


L2A Defined (4of6) The Imitation Is Suicide Chapters were a homage to my influences. David Byrne, Rick James, Bowie,...

Sure, it's not the track we heard on Instagram, but that only means that there is more in store from Danja and Kenna. Hopefully much more, since Kenna insisted today that his next release will not be another EP.

Meek Mill's New Song Inspired by 'Scarface' Intro?

It's no secret that crime movies like Scarface remain favorites among rappers to this day. Many emcees, including the new crop's favorite OGs, have likened themselves to Tony Montana. So, it makes sense that the Scarface intro song, composed by Giorgio Moroder, might one day be looked to as a source of instrumental inspiration.



The grave aura of the Scarface intro music feels familiar to that of Danja's production in "Stand Up," and is in keeping with the '80s influence in his music. I'm sure we all remember the time Danja recreated Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" from the ground up for Kevin Cossom, and the time he sampled the "Knight Rider Theme Song" for Ciara's "Echo."




However, given the climate in music after the "Blurred Lines" verdict, I'll avoid throwing around any terms that could directly link these two compositions. No snitching. But, it's definitely worth pointing out, especially since Danja's acknowledged the parallels himself.
