Eedris claps back! Jaga Jaga Oti Get E!

Eedris is back, and he’s bringing the thunder! His old school flagship hit Jaga Jaga, which has inspired some killer remixes already, is now back in the form of Jaga Jaga Oti Get E! Just check out these sweet beats.

Eedris had the following to say about the release:

‘Eye wey dey cry dey see road!’…

A pre-planned character assassination plot was hatched in a very devious and unrelenting fashion against me last week by Festus Keyamo whom I asked for help in a time of great need, someone whom I hitherto thought should have known better, but whose hatred for the truth and truth seekers drove him and his outrageously extended, venom coated hideous fangs overboard.

His hate drove him over the precipice, to the extent that the management of a big tech organization like TWITTER deemed his vituperation as unsavory, distasteful, crude and uncouth…and asked him to take down the offensive and idiotic posts or get blacklisted like other uncouth peeps like him.

And this is a serving minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria! A Senior Advocate in the nation’s Temple of Justice!! And a so called social reformer…what a shame!!!

Anyways, ‘no long thing’ as we say in our local patios, I give you my own side of the story in the only way I know best…through my music!

I give you the audio offering of “Jaga Jaga Oti Get E”, visuals loading…

Eedris Abdulkareem

Heavy stuff! But of course, Eedris has never once shied away from expressing what he truly believes, using the vehicle of his awesome music. The track is close to 15k views on Youtube right now, and with the Spotify release having just come out, this song is gonna be a real earworm going forward, just as the other Jaga Jaga iterations have been!

But check out that one last line from Eedris… “visuals loading”. Should we be expecting a new music video for this killer track soon? Keep your eyes peeled!

Eedris Abdulkareem is an inspiring rapper with an amazing history behind him, and many classics of his such as “Jaga Jaga” and this new iteration of “Jaga Jaga” illustrate his great musical ability. He is not afraid to speak out for what he believes in and is truly a commendable artist.

Eedris Abdulkareem is a Blue Pie Records USA artist and is available at all leading digital retailers on the planet. Search “Eedris Abdulkareem”, or check out his social media links below!

MCs Mighty and Pyrite underwent extensive training in order to get the show off the ground, by featuring on 100% Home-Grown for about a month and a half. 100% Home-Grown is the one-stop Aussie indie shop for 107.1’s Thursday Night lineup. The pair were given an opportunity to share a great many hits from both Blue Pie and DJ Central catalogues, while also training on how to produce their own show. Much love to 100% Home-Grown’s host Lea for giving the boys this opportunity! They recorded their own practice episodes, and after a few tweaks and admin work, they brought on Gabe Rizza, the mastermind behind the remixes of Key Loch’s cover of Frozen by Madonna, plus many more remixes for Key Loch!

Also renowned for his work on restoring iconic master hits from the past such as Running Blue, Gabe has taken a new spin to the radio show, and it’s going to take the Southern Highlands by storm – the radio station love it, and we’re hoping the public do too!

come home to me

Gabe Rizza returns to remix Key Loch! Come Home To Me!

Recently, Gabe Rizza brought a personal touch to Frozen, the Key Loch cover of the old school Madonna classic. Three spicy new flavours came into the mix and showed us the musical range that Gabe is capable of.

And before that, Passenger by B-Bless and Fantasy by CB got the same kind of treatment!


And now, we’re pleased to announce the triumphant return of these Key Loch remixes, this time not with a cover or the song of another artist, but of an original Key Loch work! Remember the melancholy pining that was found in Key Loch’s “Come Home To Me”? That’s the next cat off the rank today! Check out these sweet remixes that Gabe has brought to us!

These mixes incorporate the original track into the playlist and album so you have a benchmark you can compare it to, and boy can you ever see a difference between them! The melancholy yet upbeat smooth tones of the original are now starker, lonelier, backed by heavy synths. This is a huge contrast to the original’s identity, considering it was a bit more of an old-timey tale about a husband going off to war and his wife waiting anxiously for his return. Now, there’s three new flavours of this futuristic interpretation of the song – let your mind wander, is it a space or cyber war that the husband has left for this time?

The Cyberpunk mix brings a kind of drum and bass touch to it, kicking up the tempo into high gear. The Desolation mix features a heavier snare and will make you nod your head harder to the thicker beats. And the Isolation mix compounds the sadness of the song by dialing back the percussion presence, letting a loneliness echo throughout the track. This one is bound to make you feel things… and it definitely is a fresh new spin on Come Home To Me that you can’t get anywhere else! We’re glad that Gabe is hammering away and bringing his unique sound to these releases, because it takes them in a direction altogether his own, and one that we’re always glad to explore. Just look at how different the original is with the awesome music video! Now that’s talent, to expand upon a foundation like that.

Key Loch are Damien Reilly and Justin Gross. They are the founders of the 90’s power Aussie Rock Band Southpaw www.southpawmuzik.com. They bring together a production history between them of 50 years of song writing and playing live music in Australia. Key Loch’s expert playing guarantees that every time you listen to the emotional “Come Home To Me”, it’ll hit you right where it counts. The future is bright and Key Loch are wearing shades as they unlock the musical doors of your mind and fill it full of great music. This is the beginning of something amazing and the world can never have enough of GREAT music. And of course, Gabe’s awesome work can’t be understated – it’s thanks to his fresh injection of new life that all of us at Blue Pie and DJ Central will be sorted on our dance playlists for weeks now! Keep em coming, guys!

Radio Airplay and Jango are essential streaming service assets!

Radio Airplay and Jango are two sides of the same coin. Radio Airplay is for catalogue owners to upload to, and Jango is where the music plays. And lately, music from both the Blue Pie and DJ Central catalogues has been playing loud! Radio manager Anthony Milton has been getting our music up and ready to listen to, and the results are clear. It’s not only being played by public listeners around the world, but it’s gaining radio credits as well! That means that a radio station has heard our sound and decided they want it on their airwaves. These are rare and coveted things, and it’s incredible to see them taking off like this!

  • Bon Scott – 5 Radio Credits

  • David Juliet – 6 Radio Credits

  • Jack Derwin – 6 Radio Credits

  • Oohlala – 5 Radio Credits

  • Radio Drive – 5 Radio Credits

While radio stations noticing our stuff and getting it out there might be very exciting, the general public’s opinion of our music also is critically important! Check out these stats straight from Jango!

All of these artists also have thousands upon thousands of plays to their names, so they’re truly breaking the mould in a noticable way! Chinese Olympics opener Zya Mou of course has been turning heads, and Down3r in particular of course has a very loyal following – it’s nice to see their support extending from platform to platform! Well, good music finds fans everywhere, no?


This initiative is part of several radio based platforms that Blue Pie and DJ Central are cooperating with. Through radio distribution, creating our own shows, and uploading our music to all manner of streaming services, we’re venturing into new worlds of marketing. Our Latin American team are hitting the ground running and helping us to market singles around the world. The efforts of team members such as Sabrina Di Claudio changes the way we go about all of this, and with artists such as DL Down3r, Key Loch, and Kay L, the talent is there and the sky is the limit! This particular journey into the world of radio is but one of many, and with the excellent results we’ve been getting from all of them, we can’t wait to see what else the future holds!

AMRAP is bringing you the best in Aussie music!

It’s an initiative that distributes and promotes contemporary Australian music to community radio stations nationwide. AMRAP is a service strictly for Australian artists. Our radio manager Anthony Milton uses AMRAP to upload releases from all our Australian artists, with the caveat that the releases must be under 12 months old – fresh and new is the name of the game!

We have had a good amount of activity from the AMRAP community, with our releases being downloaded and played. Radio stations are loving the content in the DJ Central catalogue, and it’s heartwarming to see that!
Four of our artists are relatively popular – SlimeyThings’ Space Toast EP springs to mind off the top of our head…

Ray Vanderby’s sexy track Hammond Dance Au Go Go has also gotten some attention by an AMRAP Affiliate and a radio station TLC 100.3 FM! We’re excited to see that track going places.

Key Loch have had the most activity with a total of 26 downloads. 14 Radio stations were included in those numbers. Plenty Valley FM 88.6 downloaded Where Is The Love and Frozen (The Remixes) multiple times! If you’re in the neck of the woods of those stations, be sure to keep an ear out!

Finally, Jack Derwin of our partner Blue Pie’s catalogue has had 27 downloads of his tracks. The Triple R radio station in particular has downloaded 14 tracks.
