Here’s Some More New Weird Blaqstarr
Over the past few weeks, Blaqstarr has been haphazardly tossing out new songs onto his YouTube account. First, there was “Ride,” a club remix of “Rider Girl” from January’s Divine EP. “Rider Girl” is, of course, a slightly less club music-friendly version of “Ryda Girl,” so it’s kind of a strange loop of remixes of remixes, but “Ride” is, if anything, the most straight-forward club production/remix/whatever from Blaqstarr in quite some time. At least since he made a “raw version” of Divine EP‘s first single “Oh My Darling” last spring.
Then, there’s “Never Hesitant,” which is an attempt, it seems, to indulge his singer-songwriter urges and his manic club producer talents all at the same time. “Never Hesitant” begins with some ominous acoustic guitar that kinda sounds like the theme to River’s Edge and features Blaq’s blunted croon and then, for a few moments, a fairly nutty, mid-’90s sounding club track, and then back to the experimental R&B. The video ends with an over-the-top “Mixtape Coming Soon” announcement. Though there’s no official date on it’s release, Blaq did mention via Twitter that he’s shooting for an April release.
