The DJ is the back bone for any artist or venue, especially when it comes to Hip Hop. A selfless title, the DJ makes sure the party is entertained, playing and promoting music from a wide variety of artists and genres. Even during lock down, while all live performing artists and venues are held back, the DJ is thriving still, through live streaming and mixes. Artists like Na$im Williams move to take advantage of the time, connecting with artists and putting his city on.
Na$im has been putting many artists on for a while, and some prominent names too, as he juggles music production as well. Creating a combination of boom bap and soulful beats, his production has taken him from the East Coast in New York, to the West Coast to LA. He has produced tracks for many Chicago artists like the Savemoney collective, ProbCause, Rich Jones, Lili K and more. All the while Djing for various Chicago nightlife spots, opening up for the likes of NaS, Travis Scott, Vic Spencer, and popular names; Na$im does not skip a beat.
Today he premieres his latest release here at Ever Evolved, where we promote Chicago; Na$im delivers just that, all in an hour long mix. From start to finish, you hear nothing but local Chicago Hip Hop, Rap & Soul from the best artists in the city, many being unreleased tracks. Starting off gritty with DRUGS by Doc Supreme, transitioning into the R&B vibe with GOODNIGHT by Sisi Dior, for a nice balance in energy. He turns it up a bit with a raw beat and quick lyricism by Radcliff Music, and gets even more hype with next track, MONEY CALLING, by WorldInKaos. He keeps it going like this throughout the mix, promoting popular artists in the city like MOECYRUS, Novatore, Vic Spencer, as well as Ever Evolved artists Radcliff, RhymSter, JaitheArtist, Essse, Wilhelm Duke, J-Bose and BeatrixKiddo. The smooth transitions ensures a quality hour of hip hop music, from artists in our own backyard, this mix carries a real vibe throughout.
