Shaun J. Wright & Alinka – Face The Truth EP

2016 April 21

014. Shaun & Alena

So we’ve been supporting the releases of Shaun J. Wright and Alinka for a little while and if you haven’t heard of this homegrown Chicago best-friend duo, we suggest you jump on the bandwagon pretty quick, as they’re rapidly accelerating their way onto the dance floors and into the hearts and of many. With a string of incredible releases on their own imprint Twirl, including a plethora of remixes from credible house giants such as Luke Solomon, Kim Ann Foxman, and Eli Escobar among many, they’ve certainly laid the foundations to establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Their latest release however, doesn’t come from their own imprint but instead from Damian LazarusCrosstown Rebels, and includes a massive remix from Audiojack, which rocketed into top end of the Beatport Deep House charts and has remained a firm favourite there since it’s release on April 1st. As well as Audiojacks remix, the EP comes with three original cuts from the duo, displaying their ‘nouveau Chicago’ sound and Shaun’s unmistakably recognisable silky smooth vocals. This EP Is incredibly solid, I might go so far as to say it’s my favourite of theirs to date, but I say that with each and every new release of theirs, which is testament to the fact they’re productions are undoubtedly going from strength to strength.

Shaun & Alinkas DJ bookings have equally gone from strength to strength, and this weekend sees Alinka play her second set at Berlins Panorama bar since her relocation to Berlin the end of last year; while Shaun remains in the US he’ll also be on this weekends sterling line-up which includes Roman Fluegel, Ivan Smagghe, Honey Dijon, Daniel Avery and Ata, I for one will be on the Pbar dance floor cutting some shapes to their beats. For you London folk, they’ll also be headlining Dalston Superstores 7th birthday party May bank holiday weekend, which has an equally mammoth line-up including Dan Beaumont, Hannah Holland, Jonjo Jury + more and hugely excited to say i’ll be playing myself too!

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this Killer DJ mix from Alinka, which was one of the first in our guest mix series she provided for us back in March last year.
