The west and east coasts moves in varying directions but while Shane Reis & God.Damn.Chan both share an affinity with Portland, Maine, the DJ in Chan has made the move to Los Angeles, establishing himself in the evolving landscape of LA’s beat making community. Both Shane and Chan have toured together in the past, becoming more familiar with one another. The stage was literally set for DJ and emcee to collaborate on a project with one another. God.Damn.Chan would provide the lush canvas with his beats filling out the backdrop to Shane’s dextrous lyricism.
The collaboration would lead the two to VEIB (pronounced VIBE), a 14-track opus that’s certainly set to put their contemporaries on notice. The duo premieres the new track “Say Nothing (feat. Kenya Hall & Eyenine),” a laidback number with a steady rhythm and impeccable flow. The background vocal play gives the track a sultriness that’s easily welcomed.
