ECool now returns with a single of his own titled “Give Dem” featuring Danagog and Selasi; and also chopped it up for an exclusive Q&A. Check it out below.
Q: Tell us about your new single “Give Dem.” The song is charting alongside the likes of Wizkid. How did the song come together? And what made you pull together Danagog and Selasi for the track?
A: “Give Dem” is pretty much an Afro-Caribbean merge. The record was originally supposed to be DJ ECool feat Danagog but then I thought to record the song in Selasi’s studio. Everyone vibed in the studio, one thing lead to another and Selasi was on the song.”
Q: What has the craziest DJ ECool fan experience been thus far? Whether at one of your gigs or on tour with Davido.
A: “I’ve had a fan tell me she was going to kill herself if I didn’t follow back on Snapchat lol…that was pretty crazy.”
Q: As you achieve more and more success, how does your creative process change?
A: “Honestly, my creative process changes or advances as I travel to different countries because I learn a lot as I travel (about different musical genres, cultures) and it impacts my music.”
Q: You’re obviously a successful DJ. Will we be hearing more music projects from you like “Give Dem?” If so, can you share any details?
A: “Yes you will be hearing more very soon. I’ve been back in the studio working.”
