Oakland-based artist Ovrkast. made his skills as both a producer and rapper known on his debut project, ‘Try Again’, which dropped this January. Since then, the multi-faceted hip-hop creative has kept busy by dropping a consistently solid series of beats and remixes via his alt-Soundcloud page. It seems even social-isolation won’t even stop him from dropping heat, either, as he releases his own rendition of Drake and Future’s “Life is Good”.
Both legendary rappers offer ample flows for a producer like Ovrkast. to do some serious damage with, and he quickly gets to work with their vocals by re-fitting them with precise sample-chops and lo-fi drums that completely rearrange the vibe of the track. Trading the ominous, trap production of the original song for the more vintage and syncopated hip-hop sound that Ovrkast. does best, he leaves his mark on the song in a way that reinvigorates a song we’ve all gotten pretty familiar with by now.
