DiiJai – By Myself

Given that SmoothedOut started as a venue to showcase stuff I’m listening to, I’m always (pleasantly) surprised and flattered when I receive info from artists and/or their camps requesting be featured. Tess Henley was one of those cases, and now we’ve got Georgia-based singer DiiJai. Between hosting radio shows and even appearing at the Democratic National Convention, he’s got a hell of a resume; more importantly – as By Myself proves – he’s got a ton of talent too. This DeRon Woods-produced jam has got a modern spin on the early-90s-R&B sound, and has a great message too. I’m glad DiiJai’s team reached out to me, otherwise I may not have found out about him. Be sure to listen to the EPs and mixtapes on his Bandcamp page, and be on the lookout for his next EP, C.O.L.O.R.S.
