For over two decades, the legendary producer DJ Premier has helped add musical gems to the catalogs of as many equally legendary artists such as The Notorious B.I.G., Janet Jackson, Jay-Z, Common and many more. Now, he continues his storied legacy with the debut of his new artist, singer-songwriter and musician Torii Wolf as she releases her first single, “1st”.
“1st”, which was also produced by Premier, is a somber and gritty tune where she painfully displays the feeling of one sided love and commitment. Something many folks can relate to.
The single will be featured on her debut album, Flow Riiot, which is produced entirely by Preemo himself. It’s also important to note that she makes history as the first female artist to have her album entirely produced by the DJ.
Preemo describes her unique style as “weird and wicked” in a way that brings comparisons to Icelandic singer-songwriter Bjork in mind.
“She is so unique and versatile; she writes, sings and is an accomplished guitarist and drummer. But image-wise, there is no comparison. Subject-wise, Torii is in a whole different place,” he says.
