DJ Sliink is a legend in the Jersey Club realm. They always say you need to give back to the scene as much as you take away and that can easily the describe the foundation behind the producer. Enhancing club music to newer heights, the Jersey native finds himself reworking one of the many hits from close friend Fetty Wap. Hailing from similar neighborhoods, this rendition of “Text Ur Number” has a backstory worth mentioning.
“My crew The Cartels, and Fetty’s crew Remy Boys always had respect for one another from being on the grind in New Jersey. When Fetty blew up, he always told Big O and me, that “Het got us on one” for the streets and for Jersey! We ran into him at SXSW a couple years back when “Trap Queen” was everywhere. He’s like “Yo, I still got you.” A few months later, we ended up all linking in the studio in Paterson, NJ. Crazy we actually recorded him over a different beat. Then spent the next 4-6 months doing multiple versions.
After some major label politics, we linked with Envy, and finally released the song and got some great national love. I think we peaked at #30 on Urban radio. Definitely, an exciting moment to have my first radio crossover song. But the version we released as original was really the radio edit. The “Remix” that we are putting out now, is really the basis of the first version we originally made, when we were doing for the streets, for Jersey. For respect from where we come from. Hope y’all dig the remix AKA the original!” –DJ Sliink
