Hi kids. How’s that summer treating you? Me too, me too.
Anyway, Wesleyan “in every band” musician and hardworking DJ, Adrien DeFontaine ’13, also known as Crook$hanks has been putting out a mix every month this year, each consisting of songs he’s been rully vibin’ to around the time of the releases.
Today’s the end of July, and some of us feared that Crook$hanks had slipped from his release regiment. Were we supposed to go an entire month without dancin’ and groovin’ to a new $hanks mix? This morning at 1:30 AM, Wesleying’s own Zach texted me with his own concerns: “If you don’t post the Crook$hanks mix today, something really bad is gonna happen.”
Luckily, Mr. $hanks emailed me the new mix and all the info at 9:58 tonight!
This month’s mix, titled The July Mix, features some cool stuff, like an unreleased track from Bastille (one half of which is Michael Ullman ’12), a track by gLAdiator (one half of which is Ian Johnson ’11), a track from Kilbourne (Jason Kilbourne ’14), a track from recent Pitchfork BNM recipients TNGHT (feat. Hudson Mohawke and Lunice), a Danny Brown remix, and a Waka Flocka Flame remix (which appeals very much to my Waka-worshipping sensibility).
