Not many producers/engineers, in the arena of hip-hop or otherwise, can boldly state his recording school experiments twice (first with Sound Masters Recording, later attended Musicians Instutute of Hollywood) transformed my musical landscape. But, then again, every producer/engineer is not Tblazz. "Although Im from the South Coast, I try to make music that will have a universal appeal," says Tblazz, whose latest disc Welcome 2 Dah 818 (Shatha Entertainment Inc./TBBLAZZIN PRODUCTION$) is as musically diverse as the constant sounds blaring in his brain. "Its always been my desire to make music for the world."
Indeed, having constructed such projects as Welcome2dah818 quintuple platinum classic Doe ove Hoes, the bouncy "Wheredahagudat" for Mr S.O.C.Yung Glory and the cool Cadillac Slim aka Judah mann a gospel rapper , a sophomore solo disc was the furthest thing from Tblazzs mind. "Ive always been just a producer at heart, but my friends and family kept insisting that I do another project."
On Welcome 2 Dah 818, was designed to thrill the souls of hip-hop macks. "Not trying to sound arrogant, but as a fan of rap, I just wasnt hearing much music that I thought was moving the world," explains Tblazz. "And thats what I wanted to create."
Reunited with Mr.S.O.C, the first single "Emotions." is a slow motion riot featuring wicked hook of Jim Jones, Tbblazzins trademark vocals and a hip swaying groove that transports the track to the next level of sonic intensity. "He created almost a hundred tracks for this project," says Tee. "But, this song was the next to last song that I recorded. I needed the perfect song to represent Welcome 2 Dah 818."
In addition to Mr.S.O.C.,Skan Sapreem,Yung Glory,Lady Ghost,Sun-E,Yung J.T.,Topnotch,Gee and all of whom make appearances on Tblazz Welcome 2 Dah 818 and The New Mixtape "Tha Gatherin", this is one of the most emotionally charged records in hip-hop . "Anyone who has ever l loved someone will be able to relate," says Tblazz.
Back to once again reign supreme on booming stereos throughout the world, Tblazzs Welcome 2 Dah 818 takes the listener on a black to the future fantastic journey into wild soundscapes, blunted voices and new beginnings.
