Eddy Puyol lets DJ Ovadose give “Like a Cadillac” the chopped and screwed treatment

When Eddy Puyol wanted his latest single (the classic car-based “Like a Cadillac”) remixed with H-town’s signature sound Rafael Rodriguez of Proper XL Design knew there was only one man to call: DJ Ovadose.

With this surprise, post-album drop, Puyol and ’Dose team up for a slowed down version that adds even more drip to an already smoothed out song. The result gives a Houston gloss to a tune that sounds like what you’d get if the Isley Brothers and UGK collaborated for a record with the vibe of Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day.”

DJ Ovadose is a veteran in the artform, having helped found the Choppaholix collective which brought chopped-and-screwed remixes to some of Houston’s most popular rap radio stations. After an encounter with Christ, ‘Dose decided to use his talents to promote the gospel via hip hop. A social media post with one of his remixes even caught the attention of nobigdyl. and the duo connected on the “Slowercase Tape.” released in 2020.

Puyol is also no stranger to the underground genre having released a “Chopped & Screwed” album in 2009 with DJ Primo. And although he’s a Florida-boy through and through, his connection to Houston is strong having multiple collabs with several artists from the city – most notably with Lil Raskull.

“I just love the way the chopped and screwed sound takes a record to a whole new vibe,” Puyol said. “And when you’ve got a song about a Cadillac – it’s a perfect fit for this kind of treatment.”

The track samples the artist’s previous work (“Flossin’ Him”) and its smooth groove, memorable melody, steady beat are tailor-made for a late afternoon drive with the windows down and a cotton candy sunset in your rearview mirror.

It’s a part of Puyol’s latest album, Nothing Changed But My Stage Name, and available on your favorite digital service provider platforms (Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, etc.) and Eddy Puyol social media sites.
