WAX MEETS PASTE: DJ IV's "Paper Maché Muscle" Takes It Back for the Sake of the Art
Much like mixing water and flour, DJ IV mixes hip-hop and soul to create something solid.
Ever hear people talk about how music sounded better on vinyl or cassette? I think it’s more accurate to say music was just better back then, regardless of the medium. What we’ve been missing as music-lovers is that grit, the rawness of sound that goes along with feeling out the textures of a song. Producers are over-processing songs for the sake of digital reception, and it’s a problem.
Enter DJ IV from Houston, TX.
His newest project, “Paper Maché Muscle,” is described as “a hazy, psychedelic mash-up of popular and obscure vocalists, paired with an eclectic blend of manic record chops.” As a lowkey legend in the music game, the CEO of Killem Collective, and a lover of quality music, DJ IV has combined the depth of texture we’re used to hearing in classic hits with the funkiness and vibiness of the new school of hip hop. If you’re a fan of Childish Gambino or Kendrick Lamar, there’s no doubt you’ll be able to appreciate this project. (Also, congrats on the impeccable music taste.)
