cd version available here
poet, rapper and mc: ‘inja’ presents his debut album on hospital records. encompassing a broad range of temples and styles, ‘blank pages’ see’s inja’s signature flow sit atop drum & bass, jungle and garage beats.
always seen with a smile on his face; inja the poet, lyricist, storyteller and unparalleled master of ceremonies presents his debut album on hospital records. his first drum & bass focussed long-player ‘blank pages’ flexes his lyrical style with heartfelt sentiment, roughneck flows and quick-fire wordsmith wizardry. all partnered with
heavyweight productions from pete cannon, nu:tone, logistics, serum, whiney and anile.
inja’s back with partner-in-crime pete cannon on ‘war games’. a funky bassline lays the foundations for this fear-fighting tale. as the breaks roll out inja’s militant and deep rhetoric puts this track on a new level, with signature percussive flair from the sought after hip-hop beatmaker.
inja’s spoken-word piece for amnesty international ‘she just wanna dance’ was a viral online hit in 2017. it’s now been given a turbo-charged re-work by med school young-gun whiney. inja’s poignant commentary on the prolific problem of harassment in club culture sits atop a grimey half-time stepper that switches up into a lethal upfront roller.
inja proves he can ‘juk’ any riddim in ‘samurai’. serum’s steppy beat and woofing bassline balances inja’s story of the samurai; slicing through the tune like the lyrical sensei he is.
“even with a white page and black ink, you can spell out more colour than the eye can see.” - inja
