Win Win "Releaserpm feat. Lizzi Bougatsos"
Most of us first heard of producer XXXChange (a.k.a. Alex Epton, pictured above) as the young fella behind the bedroom-born party tunes pulsing underneath the filthy raps of Baltimore MC Spank Rock. He's since gone on to carve a name for himself with one-off remixes for high-profile acts, like Thom Yorke and Björk, and the indie elite, like Yeasayer and Panda Bear, but Win Win is the first collaborative project XXXChange has taken on since Spank Rock. Along with DJ/producer Devlin (of Devlin & Darko), Epton worked out the psychedelic, electro-tinged tropicalia of "Releaserpm," the first leak from Win Win's forthcoming self-titled debut album for Vice. The bouncing track also features the impish singing of Gang Gang Dance's Lizzi Bougatsos, a vocal delivery that floats freely over the skittering club rhythms. We'll be able to hear Win Win pair its tracks with the likes of Andrew W.K. and Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor when Win Win drops on February 15, 2011. (via FADER)
