Thundercat’s Drunk was one of the better funk, soul and R&B records from 2017. The album is now getting the chopped not slopped treatment from DJ Candlestick & OG Ron C, meaning it gets slowed down and chopped up (not like a cheesy dance-pop song). To fit the theme, Drunk, now Drank, will be released on purple vinyl and is now out digitally.
“We are fans of this type of music and especially Thundercat and Flying Lotus. With these type of projects, OG Ron C and myself usually vibe out and do what we do best,” Candlestick describes as to why he worked on this record. “Drank gives you a perfect musical high. It’s also a project that all types of people can vibe to - smooth, chill and entertaining.”
This comes as part of a larger vision to chop up the world and sloooowwww things down because the world feels like it is moving one billion miles a minute at times.
“I've always been a fan of chopping up creative music,” explains DJ Candlestick. “A lot of people don't know we chop up rock and alternative music. We believe in chopping up everything just like DJ Screw’s dream - ‘chopping up the world.’”
