Don’t get it twisted; Donwill is still very much a part of Tanya Morgan, but since last year’s release of his album Don Cusack In High Fidelity, the Cincinnati-born, Brooklyn-based rapper has been taking out time to carve out his solo niche. One of the standout tracks from Don Cusack was “Love Junkie,” the ode to one-night stands, which featured Peter Hadar and Harlems Cash. After hearing the remix, which features Wallpaper and San Francisco’s premier rhythm section, The Park, founding member of the renowned DJ crew The Rub DJ Eleven recruited Donwill to officially release a full Love Junkie EP on his own 11 Inch Records.
“I’ve been a Tanya Morgan fan for a minute, so when I heard the remix Donwill did with Wallpaper, I was sold” says DJ Eleven. In addition to the Wallpaper remix of “Love Junkie,” the EP also includes “Look At Me,” an all new b-side produced by 1-O.A.K of The Honor Roll, and a So Shifty remix of “Love Junkie.”
The “Love Junkie (So Shifty Remix)” is easily the most adventurous remix on the EP, with the Hamburg, Germany-based DJ and production duo providing a House-infused thumping, syncopated drum beat, along with a mix of fluttering and stabbing synth lines to accompany the chopped and often pitched and effects-laden vocals placed throughout the track.
Donwill and DJ Eleven’s Love Junkie EP is the sixth release from 11 Inch Records and is available now via all digital retailers.
