- Artist: Elijah Blake
- Track: Aqua Static
- Producer: Trakmatik & Donnie Scantz
- Album: Free EP, Pt. 2
Last week, we heard Elijah Blake pay tribute to a chick whose body he just couldn't seems to get off his mental on Wicked, a single off his upcoming Drift EP. Though “Aqua Static” kinda sounds like the name of a hairspray brand, this record actually deals with the same theme: the female anatomy, and Blake's fascination therewith. (Side note: I didn't know “therewith” was a word till thirty seconds ago.) Its sound, however, is utterly fresh. Trakmatik and Donnie Scantz back the Def Jam crooner's starstruck verses with wavy synth/guitar effects and languid, delayed percussion. Aqua Static is one of two fresh cuts to be found on the Free EP Pt. 2, released to the 'net yesterday.
