TEK-N-CLIPS Productions is comprised of Kevin ‘CLIPS’ Aird and Collins ‘TEK’ Nsafoah, a duo of record producers based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Known for their distinctive and hard hitting street infused bangers and anthems, the TEK N CLIPS sound encompases a unique brand of heavy samples, exotic percussions overlayed with synthesized effects, leads and other idisyncrasies that come together in a wall of sound like no other.

They have received critical acclaim for their many remix projects including:

  • Jay-Z - The Blacker Album - One of the first and most memorable of the flood of remix albums that came out after Jay-Z released the acapella's for The Black Album. Tek N Clips took a brass heavy approach reminiscent of Jay's reasonable doubt days.
  • Armaggedon is Upon Us - A remix mixtape featuring various artists such as Nas, M.O.P., Bumpy Knuckles, Ma$e, Mobb Deep, Ghostface, Cormega, Royce Da 5'9", Eminem, 2Pac, Biggie, Kool G Rap, Fat Joe and many more. All over original TEK N CLIPS beats.
  • Rest in Peace The Mixtape - Critically acclaimed in Scratch Magazine, recieving the highest rating possible for any mixtape. R.I.P. featured remixes of songs by all the fallen musical greats such as Biggie, Tupac, Big L, Big Pun, Left Eye, Aaliyah, Eazy E and ODB. Also featuring artists like Barry White, Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles and Bob Marley. Picture a hook from Jimi Hendrix accompanied by verses from Big Pun and 2Pac and your just scratching the surface of what you get in R.I.P.
  • Rest in Peace II The Sequal - The hard hitting follow up to R.I.P. includes new remixes of great artists such as Ray Charles, Lou Rawls, Biggie, Tupac, Luther Vandross and much more.

TNC has also worked with artists such as: Hell Razah, Theology 3, Free Lynx, N.M.E. Ave, Preach Picasso.
