Ntellekt quotes “I feel it’s important to be versatile and keep your songs fresh by using production different than your own, because every producer has their own signature sound. The odds of bringing a unique sound to the music game increase dramatically when this technique is used.” J.I. Retro and Boonie Mayfield have teamed up with Ntellekt to bring their own exhilarating sound to “The Red Carpet” album. You are sure to see this talented songwriter/producer nominated for many Grammy’s and headed for what this album is called “The Red Carpet” (A Songwriter’s Journey).
