DJ Agile: High Off - ft Desiire

By Kerry Doole

DJ Agile - "High Off - ft Desiire" (Tokyo Dawn Records): This Toronto-based DJ/producer/songwriter (real name: Ajene Griffith) has made waves as a member of hip-hop collectives BrassMunk and Big Black Lincoln, is a multiple Juno and MMVA Awards nominee, and won the  Stylus DJ Mixtape Award of the Year award in '09.


This latest track is the second single from his upcoming EP and is a collaboration with Congolese-Canadian vocalist Desiire and co-writer Kash Phillips. It also appears on The Boogie V.6 compilation album from German-based label Tokyo Dawn Records.

It features the type of sparse and staccato production that is all the rage in contemporary R&B these days, while the vocal performance is smooth and soulful. A press release explains that, lyrically, "'High Off' explores the debilitating high you get off the sparks flying in a new relationship." That is affirmed via lines like "I'm pretending I'm not addicted... I'm already blinded."

The sensual vibe of the cut is complemented by an eye-catching video, shot in Costa Rica with director Trevor Francis.

David 'Click' Cox is handling this one.

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
