This is for my good friend Jon Hollamby (far right), who recently returned to his native Australia. He'll be baffled. Special thanks to David Drake for hooking me up with all this Houston screwed n' chopped stuff. Screwed n' chopped is a Houston specialty, where the dj slows the music down to a syrupy sludginess (they also do all kinds of little dj tricks), giving it a weird, weird, weird texture. This is especially so with singing, which sounds bizarrely emotional and breathy and just straight-up weird. Women sound like Barry White, and men sound like Darth Vader on heroin.

Big Moe - Sippin' Codeine

DJ Screw feat. Pimp Tyte - Thuggin'

Slim Thug, Mike Jones, and Paul Wall - Still Tippin'

Keith Sweat - How Deep Is Your Love?

That Keith Sweat tune is illness incarnate.

Yeah, that whole Fuck Action album is pretty amazing. Maybe I'll post the screwed n' chopped version of Christina Aguilera's 'Beautiful', which is hilarious.
