The dictionary defines “Damage” as “an occurrence of change for the worse.” But regardless of what Webster has to say, DJ K.O. has agreed to go ahead and break down literal (and lyrical) barriers to write his own definition in the new single, D A M A G E. Sampling In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (a.k.a. “In the Garden of Eden”), the 17-minute classic from Iron Butterfly, producer DaveNotti throws down a gritty beat that fits K.O. (along with collaborators East & Silent Knight), perfectly. Considering everyone on D A M A G E is a member of Elementality Productions, the label is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Listeners should be looking for the first of K.O.’s many free EP’s, Living Out a State of Mind (Vol. 1), due out early next month.
