Alan Wilkis vs. RJD2

words by Dwellephant

Wes Flexner posted this today on one of my favorite blogs, and I wanted to help spread the word (Hopefully without violating some sort of blog code of ethics.).

The Shining Path (Alan Wilkis Remix)” – RJD2

(click to download)

Alan Wilkis has successfully taken one of my favorite songs released this year, and pulled off that rarest of things: a remix as enjoyable as the original. While RJ’s album version (From recently released The Colossus) sounds more like an old soul joint, Wilkis’ remix embraces a more synth-friendly funk bounce.

Check out that remix. Then call your favorite WMSE DJ and request to hear the original. Leave a comment below and let me know which one is your favorite.
