DJ Candlestick Shares Chopped and Screwed Version of SZA's 'Ctrl'

Ctrl gets the half-speed-special from The Chopstars staple

Suppose we can forever depend on OG Ron C and/or one of his Chopstar comrades to come through with the purple heat upon the arrival of a marquee album.

HEAR: Thundercat’s Drunk as a Chopped & Screwed Suite

Their last recalibration, Thundercat‘s DRUNK as the aptly-named DRANK, was wholly embraced by both the BRAINFEEDER bass man and his fanbase. Next up on the chop block: SZA‘s debut album, Ctrl, where the venerable DJ Candlestick gracefully stretches and contorts the TDE singer’s breakthrough full-length into a deep and rich new take that pairs perfectly with those hazy post-midnight rituals.

HEAR: Childish Gambino’s “Awaken, My Love!” as a Chopped-and-Screwed Masterpiece
