Whoo! EARMILK favorite Steve Spiffler just took some of Chance the Rapper's dankest jawns and "spiffied" them up with remixed production ranging from jazz to dirty south. His 10 Days of Acid and Coloring Books record is a serious Chano-changer, featuring what might be the most imaginative and varied assortment of reworked Chance tracks I've heard yet.

Spiffler adds some slappy juice to handpicked gems from Chance's 10 Day and Coloring Book tapes, including favorites like "22 Offs," "Angels," and "Same Drugs." "22 Offs" starts thing off with a boom chicka blicka bang, putting some robust yet smooth horns behind Chance's memorable interlude. Another must-peep is "Same Drugs," which chills out the original with a dazzling array of instruments and beautiful vocals from collaborator Jenji.
Spiffler had this to say about 10DOAACB:
I put together the project because I appreciate Chance's work and wanted to hear what he would sound like on my beats. Ultimately, I want people to be able to hear an older Chance song and re-listen to it again and again like it was the very first time they heard it.
10 Days of Acid and Coloring Books is another impressive offering in a long line of dope projects from the multitalented Spiffler, who is also an emcee who engineers all of his music. The latest tape from Mr. Spiff can be peeped out on SoundCloud and downloaded from Bandcamp.
Be on the looky-look for more blaps from -- dare I say -- Chance's new favorite producer?
