Mack Wilds - Don’t Turn Me Down
A record titled “Don’t Turn Me Down” could be about one of two things: a budding romance, or the pleasure of blasting music at high volume. Mack Wilds‘s latest effort fits into the first category. Still, I can’t imagine many of you will be inspired to turn your volume knob counter-clockwise when Salaam Remi and Rico Love‘s smooth instrumental starts pumping through your speakers. Over the aforementioned beatsmiths lush, yet spacious string/synth backdrop (Anyone I.D. that sample for me?), the actor and recording artist expresses the urgency of his longing for a certain woman, pleading with her, “Don’t tell me that you think we’re moving too fast.” An unknown director’s official visuals round out the package.
