By now, you’ve heard that Drake appeared as the surprise headliner at Tyler, The Creator‘s annual Camp Flog Gnaw, and was subsequently booed off stage by overzealous attendees expecting Frank Ocean to cap the festival. Well, if anyone’s in their feelings, it certainly isn’t Drake. The 6 God took his bad night in stride, responding to attendees on Instagram with the type of casual energy only the biggest pop star of the decade could muster. It seems Tyler, The Creator extended his offer pretty considerably—naming Drizzy as Flog Gnaw’s resident headliner for the next 10 years. Drake broke the news via Instagram, claiming,”Plot twist…just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw sorry kids see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR till you are 30.”

Drake’s historical track record with public beef often finds him getting the last laugh, and with an artist of his stature, at this point it isn’t surprising. Put it this way, if the revelation of a secret child three weeks before an album release can’t stop that record from going five-times platinum, a bunch of salty concertgoers are barely a blip on Drake’s radar. Simply put, the man is likely too powerful to be stopped now.

Tyler, The Creator’s IGOR project produced the eccentric artist’s most streamed song off Spotify, “EARFQUAKE.” The single was recently remixed by Channel Tres, who worked with JPEGMAFIA and SG Lewis this year. He’s a Compton producer and DJ who left the EDM world early on to focus on developing his modern hip-house sound. It’s a combination of classic house elements and analog instrumentation, which is precisely the tone set on this re-work.

Focused on a walking bassline grooving alongside the Odd Future head honcho’s catchy “don’t leave it’s my fault,” vocal phrases, skipping high hats glide along lush keys and a moonlit sax arrangement to encapsulate an fresh, casual take on the electronic R&B indie original. It makes for a nice entry into Channel Tres’ growing catalog; not to mention, a milestone for the producer, who became the first ever official remixer for Tyler, The Creator through this endeavor.
