Hot New Music : Alan Wilkis – Pink and Purple EP

Throwing down some jamming dance music at you today. New York’s Alan Wilkis first caught my ear with last year’s excellent  Babies Dream Big, an electro funk gem which got quite a few spins here at the BOS. Alan’s new one, the Pink And Purple EP  ups the ante a notch with a smoking six song set of tunes. In a recent interview on Owl and Bear Blog, Alan lists his top ten influences as :

1. Michael Jackson
2. Prince
3. Rick James
4. Dazz Band
5. Frank Zappa
6. Tortoise
7. Wilco
8. Raphael Saadiq
9. Jimi Hendrix
10. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Just one listen and you can tell he’s learned his lessons well, the Pink and Purple EP  blends his influences into a synth fueled, soul funk tour de force, that in a perfect world should be blasting out of radios all summer long. If this doesn’t have you up and shaking your body down to the ground nothing will.

Here’s a couple songs from Pink and Purple plus one from Babies Dream Big to kick your Fourth Of July weekend into full blown dance party mode. Rock on !
