Chin Injeti issues a rallying cry of self-love and reliance in his new single For The Love Of Life — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
For The Love Of Life — which also features fellow Vancouverite Teon Gibbs — is Injeti’s first release of the year, and follows 2020 offerings of Let Go, Serious and Falling. In keeping with his collaborative spirit, the latter featured vocalist Esthero and Delhi 2 Dublin’s Tarun Nayer on tabla.
Born in Hyderabad, India and having to struggle with polio from birth, music therapy treatments helped facilitate Injeti’s motor skills — ultimately changing his life. His path towards the craft became clearer when he teamed up with then-partner DJ Khalil, with whom he made Grammy and Juno-winning music with and for the likes of Dr. Dre, Eminem, Drake, Pink, Aloe Blacc, The Clipse, Lecrae, K’Naan, and more.
Getting his official start in an in-home studio built by his father and brother, he also fronted Bass is Base, won SOCAN’s Songwriter of the Year Award, and enjoyed years of creating, touring and performing with the likes of The Fugees, The Roots, Jamiroquoi, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and others.
Further, Injeti has created and taught curriculum for Vancouver’s NIMBUS, been a featured speaker at TEDx discussing the healing properties of music, and been recognized for his life’s work as an inspiration, teacher, mentor, leader, innovator, singer, multi-instrumentalist, writer, collaborator, student, and yes, icon, with a star on Vancouver’s Walk of Fame.
