DJ Rashad & Heavee D
“It’s Wack”

Let’s all thank DJ Rashad, he of the Hindu-Kush mountains, for the man has graciously entered his login/password to SoundCloud, hit enter, and with just a few mouse clicks, keyboard strokes, and pursed-lip poses, has uploaded a new cut just for us. Well, it’s not exactly new. “It’s Wack” was plucked out of the footwork ether by Flying Lotus for his in-game radio station on Grand Theft Auto V, where millions of people will get to not only pump DJ Rashad while torturing Azerbaijani fugitive Mr K, but also hear Rashad himself in attack mode: made in collaboration with Heavee D, the song is an older DJ T-Why diss track in response to an even earlier Heavee D diss track by T-Why. Interestingly (or not), the classic drum shuffle, which Rashad has used before, has recently been reworked by T-Why himself (now EQ Why) for a track called “660.” Check out Rashad and Heavee’s track here:

Meanwhile, Heavee has a new EP with DJ Earl called New Dimensions, and Rashad’s Double Cup is out October 22 on Hyperdub. Yep. TEKLIFE still running it.
