Today the first single, What It Is (Apollo Brown Remix), was released from Trek Life’s upcoming project Wouldn’t Change Nothing. Detroit producer Apollo Brown approached the track by trying to craft an entirely new sound from the Oddisee original in an effort to compliment Trek’s agressive flow.

The upcoming album is a remix project that gives new producers a take on last summer’s Oddisee collaboration “Everything Changed Nothing”. The new project contains production from Apollo Brown, J Bizness, ST/MiC, MarvWon, Has-Lo, Captain, Slimkat78, Duke Westlake, A3, Bombay, and of course long time friend and collaborator Oddisee. Look for the new album at itunes next Tuesday July 12th!
