With so many obvious reasons to love New Jersey producer Andrew Lin, better known as Aylen, there was no doubt in our minds that whatever he did next, we would fully support it. Yet, in all honesty, I was not expecting such a massive release. PREPARE FOR WHAT WILL BE THE MOST EXCITING BOOTLEG PACK OF 2013, as Aylen is about to unleash a collection of 13 delicately produced bangers completely unique in both execution and style.
The Music Ninja has been known for frowning upon mashups just because at the end of the day, too many producers seem to simply layer two tracks together and call it a mix. Aylen has redefined and set the new standard for what a mashups should be like in the modernized area of electronic dance music. The very first track, “Toxic Streisand” captures the nostalgia of previous years with the ubiquitous 2010 single from Duck Sauce ‘Barbra streisand’ and the focus and determination of ‘Toxic Rush’ (Jewelz feat. Scott Sparks) bassline. It sets the mood for the next 12 songs and leaves you prepared to expect the unexpected. From utter bass destruction with a mashup combining Dada Life and Gigi Borocoo, to melodically rich tracks influenced by Martin Solveig, Madeon and Hard Rock Sofa. It has it all.
‘Cannonball’ also takes an enormous amount of spotlight as Aylen edits in Anchorman (the Movie) quotes throughout Carnage & Victor Niglio’s big room trap remix. Being surprised at what is coming out of our speakers is the best gift we could receive welcoming a new year.
There is just so much for everyone that already being 9 days into 2013, we know this compilation will lively be apart of dance floors all across the world for months to come.
