I stumbled on Erol Alkan this summer almost accidentally at Lollapallooza. I knew nothing of his history (founder and resident DJ in the mid ’90s at a kind-of-a-big-deal London club) or his close involvement with K.B. favorite Boys Noize, I just knew he was bringing a raucous crowd down to its knees with some hard, bangin’ electro. Turns out he can craft quite a strong, chill, tune as well.
Something a little harder:
Boys Noize and Erol Alkan – ‘Lemonade‘
Boys Noize and Erol Alkan – ‘Avalanche‘
Something a little more relaxing:
Boys Noize & Erol Alkan – ‘Waves (Chilly Gonzales Piano Remake)‘
Hot Chip – ‘Boy From School (Erol Alkan Extended Rework)‘
