After meeting at the Berklee College of Music while working on a film score, Passion Pit keyboardist Ian Hulquist and wife Sofia degli Alessandri formed the electro-pop twosome Aislyn, later adding drummer Joey Sulkowski to become a trio. Using their dreamy, synth-heavy stylings, they’ve remixed fresh, blissfully-layered versions of tracks for everyone from Neon Indian to the Freelance Whales. Here, Aislyn’s own “Spies” builds up slowly with Alessandri’s somber, yet angelic voice, and expands into a dizzying electronic climax of whizzing, whirring and whooshing effects. The backdrop of hypnotic sounds coupled with the airy vocals makes for a rich, mood-altering tune.
Midweek on BTR and in an annual tradition, DJRePete highlights a few choice tracks in homage to his anniversary as on the station. Celebrate six years with likes of The Apples in Stereo, Throw Me the statue, and Peter Bjorn & John. Never playing favorites; it’s all about the mix! Also tune in for info on two upcoming music festivals, and a repurposed ad jingle for good measure. It’s your BTR Wednesday with DJRePete!
