about

Make Me Feel (Believing) is the new single from Danny G & the Major 7ths featuring an all-star cast of Irish hip-hop artists. Breezy Ideygoke, 0phelia & King Koko provide the verses. The track is a rework of the song 'Believing', reimagined by producer JusMe, using samples & audio stems of the original to create something entirely new.

Danny: "I'd been a fan of Breezy's for ages. I worked with 0phelia on my first album, and DJ Stevie G put me onto King Koko. I reached out to them and everything was recorded remotely. We've got 3 completely different rap verses, each with their own unique personality, energy and style. 0phelia got beatmaker and skratchologist JusMe involved which was a gamechanger - he transformed the instrumental, and I sprinkled some of my original vocals and flute from our track 'Believing' on top of his production. What we've ended up with is a feelgood summer banger with a positive message.

The intro features interviews with Sinead O'Connor (2020 - talking about her mental health) and Seamus Heaney (1995 - speaking about his Nobel prize). The two clips struck me in different ways, O'Connor's for the bravery and power of her words "we're all going through these things". And Heaney although he's speaking in '95, could be describing today's lockdown in Ireland - "a new mood in the country that promises new energy". Even though there is this frustration and anxiety at not being able to play live music, it also seems like Irish artists are on a creative high right now, particularly in the Soul / Hip-hop arena. The struggles of lockdown can force you to get to work DIY style and find new ways of making music, and for me this track is a perfect example of that."

lyrics

(Breezy)
Seeing is believing
Watch how you're speaking
Haters on beef
Till they're ironed out, vegan
Girl you got the sauce
Can't move pasta
Never been a fake
Or a phoney Imposter
Say you got the
D, d, drip…
How you have that
Corner boy still reeking of ganga
Mummzy's golden child
Puffing on silver haze
Hmm, true say, you've seen better days
Anything I'm grabbing baby
Know that it's for keeps
Got to refocus switch up the scene
Made me reshoot the shot for these dreams
That's a stretch, that's a reach,
'Til you believe,
We could take struggle
But I'd rather take chances
Anything in life
Can be made an advantage
I've got peace with the peaceful
You know what I mean
Oya, get clicked in

(Danny)
Got me Believing
In something

(King Koko)
2020 everything kinda scary
Coronavirus got people buried
Threats of World War 3
RIP Kobe
Mad earthquakes happened in Turkey but
I'm just doin me tryina better myself
Busy gettin money gettin racks on the shelf
Mama told me to forget her
Told me not to sweat her
Haters stay cheesy might call them cheddar
Look me, I ain't no basic chick,
My bars complex like arithmetic
Believe me when I say get a walking stick
Cos my haters stumble when I speak legit
Bring the sauce girls stay dry
My work is fire
Don't mean July
Can't compete with me baby nice try
King Koko's wordplay
Will leave you tongue tied

(Danny)
Give me good feeling
You've got me smiling again
(Grainne)
Believing
Don't go leaving
(Danny)
Now I'm believing

Something you do
You've got me
You've got me smiling again
I'm gonna get it
(Grainne)
I'm gonna get it

(0phelia)
Exalt as yer default, for all people
Particularly for individual freedom(s)
No need to believe. We're all destined to feel the free fall
No need to worry. There's No finish line we can foreseeeee

And nothing is bigger than that
Invite a tiger on your path for a wrestling match
Just the perfect habitat for a dip-il-omat
With the necessity to throw the hands like an acrobat

Take a bow, Take a stand but make sure you can receive
love increase your capacity love
kindle kinship with distinction
Stimulate connections inextinguishable …

And nothing is truer perhaps
I betch've moments that ye snapped cause ye couldn't relax
What we become we attract It's a science exact
Ye can perceive it as you will but it's a matter of fact
