An introduction to OVO signee Majid Jordan.
Majid Jordan sounds like one name, but the Canadian production team is actually a duo: Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman. Signed to Drake and 40's OVO Sound, the two have gained notoriety over the years by producing gems like Drizzy's "Hold On, We're Going Home" and Beyonce's "Mine." Their unique sound is characterized by rich production and an affection towards many different styles, from funky '70s disco to exotic island vibes.
The two met in 2011 while attending the University of Toronto. They began making tracks in dorm rooms and parents' basements. Their first release came under the name Good People, in the form of an EP called Afterhours. In 2013 they produced, and were featured in, Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home," and in 2014 they released their first proper EP under the name Majid Jordan, titled A Place Like This. They don't have many more than ten tracks, realistically, but they are releasing their debut LP on February 5th. These next ten are essential if you're looking to dive into the blossoming duo.
