“Times Change” is the B-Side to K-Def’s upcoming 7″ single (“For Def’s Sake”) on Redefinition Records. This track is especially notable for it’s unique arrangement which continuously morphs into new patterns & sequences as Def introduces a variety sounds in a masterful fashion, all the way until the track fades out.

As a friend pointed out today, K-Def does tend to use a lot of well tread samples. To his credit, most of the time he pulls it off in a way that doesn’t make you cringe and go ‘fuck this, I’ve heard it a million times before.’ Which isn’t to say that he always comes up with a new and original flip that completely re-invigorates or re-contextualizes the popular break, rather always he manages to spotlight the elements that make original sample source so appealing to begin with. To quote (or possibly misquote) Count Bass D: its not about the records you have, its about what you can do with them.
