Danja says Janet Jackson is his inspiration when making music for female artists

Recommended Posts

Legendary producer Danja spilt the tea. He says Janet Jackson's music, namely Control and Rhythm Nation, is the biggest influence when he makes music for other female artists.

"I don't know how I got these tapes as a kid but I remember listening to them so much so it's in my blood. I've been tryna duplicate the essence of Janet forever."

He perfectly described Britney Spears' Blackout without naming it. 

"Just listen to anything I've done with any female artist. You will hear my choices in bright chord progressions over high energy and aggressive beats."

Danja for B10 :letitburn:

He was good the last decade but i think he run out of ideas right now. I don't want him on another Britney album, i want new blood and a new sound. She can do it.

Now wonder Britney loves him!

i always thought he was the real talent behind all of Timbaland’s tracks.

He's too organic for 2020, his sound is not that polish enough for now but I would love to see what he would do for Britney, I don't want a full album produced by him, but he could make the cut with a couple of songs. There's many more interesting producers right now that Britney could go for.

We have to have some Control type of music for Britney next album tho, at least one song, we have to see her rebellious side :walkin:

Surprisingly, Blackout doesn’t give me Janet-esque vibes but I guess it’s direction was like Damita Jo like @Roxxy said :umsaywhat:

I won’t deny that he’s created bops :lollipop: but he hasn’t created anything fresh recently :oprah:  I wanna hear something current before I start demanding him to be part of B10 because we could end up with a dated album :mhm:

Basically talk a good game came out in 2013, yeah that should tell you.

 

His sound is no longer relevant,  where Timbaland was able to evolve with the hip hop, Just listen to 8th Grade By Mariah Carey from her unappreciated album Caution to understand what I mean..

 

Danja gonna have to incoprate Trap beats to stay modern..

I honestly don't hear it, maybe a little bit on the circus production, but not on blackout nor with bad girls by M.I.A for example..... But he is a really good and interesting producer so idk....

Of course I love Danja, but what's done is done. Britney, like any other artist, needs to keep moving forward. And I say this especially after seen what Britney was capable of in "Glory", which to me is stunning and one of the best records of her whole career. Besides, Britney is the kind of artist who needs to try new things. There's a reason why she has the balls to collaborate with new or under the radar artists.

I would rather listen to a "dated" or consistent sound from Britney rather than hear something like body ache (which comes with a headache) :nyheadache:, or a new "fresh" mainstream boring sound that we hear on the radio constantly , which is basically what they've done in the last 2 albums and some songs came out as mediocre copy paste beat from another song so .... Yeah no thanks .

I disagree I feel like certain producers bring out the best of her. Can you imagine if she only work with max on just the first album, we would have never got oops or IUSA. Max, bloodshy&avant, and Danja would always get me excited
