A few months ago, I posted about some up-and-coming artist from San Antonio, SPZRKT.  While clearly influenced by the likes of The Weeknd and Frank Ocean, SPZRKT has his own, unique sound, and as I hear more of his music, he seems determined to only further differentiate himself.  “Middle of Things, Beautiful Wife”, is a beautiful track that reminds me of Ocean’s “Lost” but with some more edge.  Produced by dope beat-maker, Sango and remixed by Stwo, the beat is incredibly dynamic and driven.  This track is unreal, as it combines a talented voice with an already beautiful beat, and remixes it all into one masterpiece.  Enjoy.
