Shaun J. Wright & Alinka lay down their Chicago flavour on Crosstown Rebels with ‘Face The Truth’. The release features three originals with hot property Audiojack in to remix.
Wright, formerly of Hercules & Love Affair, provides the vocals to each track with rich, sultry tones timely placed across heavy basslines, hypnotic rhythms and high energy percussion. Wright & Alinka explain “after spending several months abroad (Alinka in Europe, Shaun in Australia) we were both newly charged and eager to get back to work. Fusing the classic sounds of Chicago with freshly gained perspectives of dance music around the globe, this EP was birthed from spontaneous experimentation and the well-versed exchange developed within a long standing collaboration.”
Shaun J. Wright & Alinka met in 2012 and launched into global success with their first EP, ‘Twirl Volume 1’, on Luke Solomon and Derrick Carter’s famed Classic Music Company. A series of successful releases and remixes ensued with follow up ‘Twirl Volume 2’ dropping only last year. In 2013 the pair launched their Twirl party series, which featured guests such as Eli Escobar, Derrick Carter, The Black Madonna and JD Samson. In 2014 they expanded the Twirl brand into a record label and their debut release, ‘Journey Into The Deep’ recieved a wealth of support including Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Heidi.
Celebrating ten years of making music, Leeds bred, Ibiza based Audiojack recently released ‘Vibrate’ with Kevin Knapp on Hot Creations. New releases are set to follow on 2020 Vision, Tsuba and their own Gruuv.
