Exclusive: Download Blaqstarr’s Cosmic-Aerobics Workout “Ride”


Delightfully cracked Baltimore-club stalwart Blaqstarr recently explained his creative process to our own Puja Patel with an extended spiel that might best be summarized as “It was just, like, cosmically absorbed through the universe.” Hot on the heels of his new Divine EP (a bit of an experimental-r&b detour for the guy, honestly), he now proudly offers “Ride,” a blaring, aggressive, pleasantly bizarre radical reworking of his own “Rider Girl,” though perhaps that’s only clear to Blaqstarr himself and whatever cosmic universal entity he’s absorbing these days. Download it here (update: no longer), and please find the “Rider Girl” clip below for comparison purposes. You see the similarity, right?
