This Friday, August 9th, super producer Eddie Logix is bringing his newest release, EDDIELOGIXPLAYSLYKKELI to life, and brought the cast of the album along with him. As the flyer states, this will be “an evening of rare enchantment.”
Eddie Logix of the infamous #CoOwnaz released his latest work, EDDIELOGIXPLAYSLYKKELI at the top of the month. This album is arguably his best release to date. Using inspiration from Swedish singer/songwriter, Lykke Li, this project came together from Logix flipping elements of her art into his own production, and bringing his musical family along for the ride.
Five30 Music appears on EDDIELOGIXPLAYSLYKKELI on two seperate songs. Benjamin Miles shares a song with Mister of Passalacqua entitled “In the Meantime” , while Charlie Beans and S.Kaiser are featured on “Left of Center,” respectively. “In the Meantime” is my favorite song on the album, and is one of my top five favorite beats I’ve ever heard from Eddie Logix. I really love the vibe of this track, and how great it makes me feel when I listen to it.
“Left of Center” was given to me by EL and he wanted S.Kaiser to do a verse on it. I remember asking Logix what he was looking for out of the song. His basic reply was, “classic Beans, and sing the hook, too.” No problem, buddy. I was really excited to bring S.Kaiser along on this one, as he’s one of the most underrated artists in the city. This track was bound to get him SOME shine.
We were very excited to be asked to be a part of this project quite some time ago, not knowing it was going to become such a great album, and a level jump for Eddie Logix in his growth as a producer, as well as his lesser known emcee abilities; although he’s been in Midcoast Most for two albums, and released an album with D.Allie as Progress Report.
Eddie Logix has been rapping for as long as I’ve known him, (over 10 years), and some people really slight him on how great of an artist he is when he decides to lay vocals to anything. In all honesty, EL raps better than most people he provides production to. His songs, “Jack Rabbit” and “We Can Go” show Logix can hold his own on the solo tip; while legendary group, Midcoast Most reunites on “Nine Lives.” The trio’s track is high energy, and shows the versatility of EL as an artist, and producer.
#CoOwnaz mainstay Doc Waffles appears on two seperate tracks. “Painting of Cats,“ which is the first video off EDDIELOGIXPLAYSLYKKELI, shows the avant garde approach Waffles gives to almost everything. Here is the trailer for the video:

Doc Waffles’ “Phone Numbers of Firsts” is a great song describing first loves. Featuring vocalist Laura Finlay, the song is conceptualized perfectly, and is relatively straight forward; a unique approach for Doc Waffles as he’s more of a “marinara sauce on a chocolate chip cookie” type; also known as an “out of the box” thinker.
SelfSays rounds out the cast of EDDIELOGIXPLAYSLYKKELI in one of my favorite songs he’s done in quite some time. “Blow This Joint” is an incredible production of Eddie Logix, while SelfSays gives an energetic and thought provoking performance lyrically.
Take the time out to listen to EDDIELOGIXPLAYSLYKKELI. It’s an amazing album that myself, and the rest of the artists who participated are very proud of. Eddie Logix is an amazing artist/producer, and orchestrated a phenominal project using key players, all by himself. We are truly seeing a legend in the making.
See you this Friday, at Trinosophes in the Eastern Market sector of Downtown Detroit. #CoOwnaz
