Big Data – Dangerous

New tracks from Alan Wilkis are always welcome, but I’ve really been enjoying his collaboration with Dan from Joywave called Big Data. Their latest track “Dangerous” has a bassline that immediately draws in listeners. Slightly reminds me of Justice or Hot Chip with it’s dark, but danceable beat and slick hook. BONUS: Joywave – Tongues […]

Alan Wilkis + Childish Gambino – More Than Normal

A combination I wouldn’t have expected, but probably should have considering Alan Wilkis‘ past PRINTS tracks (ft Lyrics Born, The Hood Internet, etc.). The synth heavy cut also adds to Donald’s recent collaborative resume with the likes of Chance the Rapper and Flux Pavilion. “More Than Normal” sounds much more like Camp than Royalty (my […]

Alan Wilkis: Fenech Soler “Demons” remix

Its been a minute since the last Alan Wilkis remix, but he was able to fit in the reworking of Fenech Soler‘s “Demons” while crafting his own originals. No surprise, I love the remix with the grimy dub synth and stuttering drums added. The pacing kind of gives the track a more urgent and emphatic […]

Alan Wilkis/Film School: Heart Full Of Pentagons

This is just what we should come to expect from Alan Wilkis’ remixes. He takes great tracks and puts his own unique spin on them and tests your allegiance to the original. Latest case: Film School‘s “Heart Full Of Pentagons”. A fantastic track in its own right with soaring, emotional lead vocals then layered with […]

A) I like the new album art for Eminem’s Recovery. Now where is the album?? UPDATE: Nah Right also has the tracklist. A Rihanna feature? Not what I was expecting. I’m looking forward to the production credits next. B) The Feed The Animals Wikipedia page has already been a great resource for keeping track of […]

Alan Wilkis: The Shining Path remix

RJD2 + Phonte of Little Brother? Thats great. Add Alan Wilkis to that duo? Even better. I’m definitely feelin’ the laid back, funk of another slick Alan Wilkis remix. And a singing Phonte is always a good thing. http://bit.ly/AW_RJD2

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 2-10-10 Part 2 of 2

After a few listens, this disc is a little more beat heavy than yesterday’s edition. Wallpaper. is kind of a younger man’s Chromeo (“I’ve Got Soul”), while Alan Wilkis makes Chester French’s “C’Mon” more dance-worthy. Yeasayer and The Ruby Suns also keep things upbeat with synth-filled fun. I’ve been enamored with Surfer Blood‘s brand of, […]
