Dubway engineer Russell Castiglione was recently in studio with Stereo Williams, recording overdubs for a new podcast by Spotify and Genius.

On March 28, 2018, music streaming platform Spotify and lyric interpretation website Genius (f.k.a. Rap Genius) announced the premiere of an all-new podcast, Déjà Vu, that celebrates the complex musical lineage of today’s biggest artists by exploring the greats who inspired them.

On Déjà Vu, host and cultural commentator Stereo Williams leads a panel of music experts in an in-depth discussion about the ways that modern hitmakers connect to the iconic musicians from the past who paved the way. Each episode will examine the music of a modern day superstar, and uncover the rich history hiding beneath the surface of their sound.

Every other Wednesday, new episodes of Déjà Vu will air for a run of eight episodes. You can now listen to the first one, featuring Rob Markman (Genius' Head of Artist Relations) and Dawton Thomas (Editor-in-Chief of VIBE), here: Episode 1: Is Kendrick Lamar the new 2Pac?
