‘Shine On’ is produced by Detroit’s own Waajeed AKA Jeedo.

His work spans from Soul, Hip Hop to Electronic, working with the likes of Cee- Lo Green, J-Dilla, Mad Mike, and countless others. Automatic is the follow up to the 2010 released The Liberation Of…, which was certified Gold in NZ and spawned the Platinum-selling Top 10 single ‘Like Water’. In 2011 Ladi6 picked up two New Zealand Music awards (Best Urban album and Best Female Artist), two Pacific Music Awards (Best Pacific Urban album and Best Female Artist) and The Liberation Of… won the prestigious Taite Music Prize.
