RELEASE: Fun. feat. Janelle Monae – We Are Young (Alvin Risk Remix Part II) [Atlantic]

Remember the first remix? Don’t be silly. Of course you do. It’s most likely on 90% of our viewers summer playlists. We’ll here is remix that many of us expected from Alvin Risk. Unlike the uplifting electro anthem that was the first remix, the new one is definitely focused on ze bass. Released yesterday, Alvin Risk’s “part 2” remix of Fun.’s hit single “We Are Young,” is an amazing array of beautiful melodies and two huuuuge drops that feature wobbles, womp, wild effects and modulation, of course some fabulous vocal sampling. Overall, Alvin draws from numerous genres of dance music to make this track, and that’s what we at AYNE like to call “future music.” I will also say that I saw Alvin Risk at Webster Hall in NYC as a part of some post-SHM@MSG activities, and overall, it seemed pretty amateur to me. Alvin’s definitely changed my mind in 2012. Respect.

Released yesterday…not sure where to get the download or purchase…will update.
