Ain't A Damn Thing Change feat. G-Eazy, Joey Bada$$, & Enisa

As one of the mainstays of today’s East Coast hip-hop scene, DJ/producer Statik Selektah has been quite the prolific artist over the years. Selektah has quite an impressive number of high-profile collaborations, with artists such as Nas, Talib Kweli, Action Bronson, and De La Soul. Last week, Selektah released single “Ain’t a Damn Thing Change” off of his upcoming album 8, his 8th studio album.

Laid out over a smooth jazzy background line, this track puts Selektah’s distinctive New York-influenced style of production on display. G-Eazy and Joey Bada$$ deliver clean flowing verses, while Enisa’s soulful riffs and chorus provide support. To kick the track off, you can hear Selektah showcase the turntabling ability that helped him first cut his teeth as a DJ.

If you liked the track, check out 8 when it’s released this Friday, December 8th. You can find the album at any of the links here. The album features a star-studded tracklist with appearances by Raekwon, Run the Jewels, Cypress Hill, and many more. Peep the full list below: Continue reading

This week’s selection is inspired by the music that accompanied some recent travels. The show kicks off with some laid back, soulful vibes but quickly kicks up into hip-hop and future beats. The majority of the lineup, though, is comprised of some trippy, experimental house tracks that have been in heavy rotation. I also shouted out BFF.fm’s end of year fundraiser and an upcoming benefit show in SF where I’ll be DJing. – ash.

Supernova (ft. Dope D.O.D.)

Apashe has long been a go-to producer for hybrid sounds. His last couple of remixes has seen him inch towards a slightly different route and now he’s back on the original grind with “Supernova” featuring Dope D.O.D. of the Netherlands. Released on Kannibalen Records, this single has all the bass you’d expect.

“Supernova” is a blend of genres including trap, hip-hop and dubstep. The collection of sounds, mixed with Apashe’s international influences, makes for a track that can be enjoyed anywhere, where you’re headbanging to it at a festival or just bumping along to it at home. Dope D.O.D.’s addition to the record brings some appreciated grit to the dirty original. “Supernova” dropped today for anyone looking to add it to their Spotify playlist or get a copy for their digital library.
