PINK AND PURPLE is the sophomore release from Brooklyn-based producer/multi-instrumentalist, Alan Wilkis. Jampacked with 808s, vintage synths, handclaps, hooks, and harmonies, PAP is an eclectic romp through the FM airwaves of the 1980s - 6 songs of non-stop electro-pop dynamite.
Home-recorded from June ‘08 - February ’09, PAP is Wilkis'' follow up to BABIES DREAM BIG(2008). On it, he continues to explore his unique genre-bending aesthetic, crafting a sound that is at once familiar and yet entirely his own, with influences ranging from Prince and Rick James to Steve Winwood and Madonna.
The EP features several special guests, including Gunnar Olsen on drums (Dragons Of Zynth, The Exit, Earl Greyhound, Asobi Seksu, Fires of Rome); guitarists, Grey McMurray (itsnotyouitsme, Bell, Matmos) and Ryan Ferreira (Alarm Will Sound, Bell); Eric Biondo (Antibalas, Shakira, TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dirty On Purpose) and Tony Barba (Youngblood Brass Band) on horns.
