Andy Allo - DOWN2ROLL (Honestnotes REMIX)
Booth readers, get ready for a very UnFresh summer. For those not initiated into Andy Allo‘s musical philosophy, that means three months of dope, unconventional tunes. The Cameroon-born, L.A.-based singer recently held a remix contest, and will be releasing one of the winning entries each month up until the season’s end. Installment number one is a high-energy revamp of DOWN2ROLL, a standout cut off the artist’s 2009 debut set. Up-and-coming beatsmith Honestnotes mans the mixing boards, backing Allo’s lovestruck verses and chorus with airy synths and a brisk disco rhythm section. If you like what you’re hearing, why not cop Allo’s freshman set, also titled UnFresh, and take a listen to the original? Additionally, check back with the Booth in July and August for the second and third remixes in the series.
