Nigerian born Producer Teck-Zilla is releasing his summer themed instrumental project titled Summer Zilla. Teck is a founding member of the Hip-Hop group Str8Buttah with members in the UK and Nigeria. After moving from the UK to Canada, Teck has proceeded to work with like-minded artists in Montreal. His previous works include the critically acclaimed Full Script mixtape. His discography also includes a compilation album titled Audio Chemistry (which featured Modenine, Canibus, Big Rapper Pooh and others), and also an array of instrumental projects starting with Souled Off: A Dedication To Molly Molls, Son Of Sade EP, Joe Jackson Kids, and B Boy ZIlla EP.
In 2018, he kicked off a beat tape trilogy starting with Jetsoul Musique and Soul Buttah. Now we have Summer Zilla to complete the series! It’s the cool vibes we need for this hot weather! The first leak off the album is “Dear Summer” — a melodic hip hop masterpiece. I promise you’ll want to unwind to this magnetic sound. The transitions are smooth and soulful. Definitely a sweet combination of hip hop jazz and soul.
When asked how he would describe his sound, Teck responded: “A blend of mellow introspective soul layered over hard drums that sound like retro boombap made in present time.” The project is a remarkably eclectic blend of hip hop and soul. It embodies all types of amazing energy.
