salva problem like whaaat remix

Introducing Problem Like Whaaat remix by Salva. Long before I could tell you the difference between house and techno, West Coast rap from giants like NWA, Ice-T & the Alkaholiks made up a healthy portion of my listening diet (on cassette, ya heard?). These days, some of the most interesting music bubbling on the left coast comes courtesy of beat makers such as the WeDidIt collective and the Low End Theory extended family, but there is still quite a lot of incredible rap music being made in the Golden State. With artists like Kendrick Lamar sitting on top of charts and critics lists, and wealth of developing talent holding down the underground and mixtape circuit, it’s feeling like an exciting time for California rap music.

Currently residing in Los Angeles via San Francisco, it’s not surprising that Salva stays up on his West Coast shit. His recent Odd Furniture EP flipped sounds from Eazy E and NWA tracks, and on-point DJ sets regularly feature tracks from both Los Angeles and Bay Area artists. His latest track to drop is a remix of Compton rapper Problem, who recently featured on E-40‘s coast-crossing slapper “Function.” With an out-front siren and plenty of low end, the remix is solid fusion of two distinct West Coast sounds.

Salva’s Odd Furniture EP is out now on Friends of Friends, and he is currently hosting the In New DJs We Trust radio show on BBC1. Problem and fellow California artists IamSu‘s Million Dollar Afro collaboration is out now, and the two artists are currently on tour together. Watch the video for the original version of “Like Whaaat” below.
