Brainfeeder presents a special chopped not slopped mix of Thundercat’s incredible 2017 album Drunk by DJ Candlestick and OG Ron C of legendary Houston DJ collective The Chopstars. Slowed down and chopped up, the mix has been fittingly re-titled Drank.

Thundercat released Drunk, his third album, in February 2017 to a rapturous reception. Across its 23 tracks, the Grammy-winning singer/bassist invited his friends Brainfeeder mastermind Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Pharrell, Kamasi Washington and Wiz Khalifa to join him on his musical journey. The record appeared on countless Best of 2017 lists.

The Chopstars were established by OG Ron C, a veteran of southern rap who co-founded the illustrious Texas-based independent record label Swishahouse Records alongside Michael “5000” Watts in 1997, releasing records by Chamillionaire, Mike Jones, Paul Wall and Slim Thug. These albums would often be accompanied by mixes that were slowed down, scratched and juggled by DJs or chopped and screwed a musical style originated and popularised by Houston’s DJ Screw (1971-2000). Paying homage to the legacy of DJ Screw, OG Ron C founded The Chopstars, recruited DJs Candlestick, Hollygrove, Mike G (Odd Future) and Slim K and released remixed versions of hip hop and R&B records by 2 Chainz, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Lil’ Yachty, coining the term chopped not slopped a reference to other DJs sloppily executed mixtapes. The collective have also famously chopped up Little Dragon’s Nabuma Rubberband and teamed up with Hollywood director Barry Jenkins to release a chopped and screwed mix of the film soundtrack Moonlight.
