Chin Injeti Reveals Something Love Would Do

The veteran hitmaker returns with the first single from his new comeback solo EP.

Chin Injeti returns to tell you about Something Love Would Do on his latest single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

A highlight of the veteran songwriter and producer’s recently released solo EP Vessels: Vol One, Something Love Would Do was made to sound dreamy and wispy while rooted in emotion. It pays homage to Injeti’s favourite driving songs of summer, taking cues from Tears For Fears Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Joe Jackson’s Steppin’ Out and more. “The ’80s was significant for me as a creator, as it was the age of the MIDI revolution,” explains Chin, “so this track and the rest of Vessels were created with this era in mind.”

A labour of love predominantly produced in his Vancouver studio, Vessels: Vol One is a collection of Chin’s thoughts and lived experiences — and the latest milestone in a musically diverse, trendsetting career that spans decades. In the ’90s, Chin fronted the internationally acclaimed Bass is Base, which secured deals with Universal Music and Island Records. The group’s success led to a Juno for Best R&B Record and a Much Music Video Award for their hit single Funkmobile. Additionally, Chin was honoured with the Songwriter of the Year award from SOCAN, setting the stage for his future accomplishments.

Following Bass is Base, Chin embarked on an extensive journey as a touring musician, sharing the stage and studio with legendary artists such as The Fugees, The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, among many others. These experiences provided him with invaluable knowledge in carving out frequencies, creating impactful lyrics and crafting melodic scores.

Transitioning towards the role of producer, Chin began collaborating with the multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning producer DJ Khalil on projects for Dr. Dre, Eminem, Drake, Pink, Aloe Blacc, The Clipse, Lecrae and K’naan. His work with DJ Khalil garnered multiple awards, including three Grammys and two Junos, while his production contributions have resulted in millions of records sold worldwide, achieving gold and platinum record certification.
