Sheldon The Turn Up has a new dance bop, “Distin”

featuring Ms Vee and N.O.B.

DJ’s recognise, probably more than most that Afropop and pretty much any dance driven genre relies very little on lyrics. Some even go as far as choping and screwing the song, a groovy baseline will always get a people happy and dancing. Based on this fact, a lot of disk jockeys around the world have created party ready bops concentrating more on creating the perfect sound than telling a sort of moving story. Ghanian DJ, Sheldon The Turn Up is no different. His debut, “That Ting” featuring Kuami Eugene displayed his understanding of how to create a radio-ready jam and he recreates that on “Distin”, this time joined by Ms Vee and N.O.B.

“Distin” begins with synth-piano harmonies before drum-riffs are introduced a few seconds in. The beat sets the groovy tone for the song even before the singing starts. Playing his role as a disk jockey, DJ Sheldon recommends that we “Get Ready For The Turn Up”  before taking the first verse and the chorus singing “I drop the distin o, do you wanna party, Then You Better Listen.
