wilksGTHANG

Following his debut EP release in December, the young LA based producer Wilks kicks off 2014 with a new original, titled G Thang. This gangster-house recreation samples the infamous words from “Aint Nothin’ but A G Thang”, which become a ghetto anthem over the song’s dark, chugging bassline. Full of deep melodies and classic house chords, G Thang is designed to get the dancefloor moving. Fans of Amine Edge & Dance, Kolombo and Thee Cool Cats will be all over this one, grab it below for FREE!

It’s almost Halloween! To get the festivities going, our friends over @ Prep School Recordings just released the LA-based Wilks ‘Bring Me Home’ EP. The haunting vocals of Bria park are accompanied by Wilks deep basslines that turn sinister and sawlike (fans of Soulwax and Disclosure will enjoy). The B-side ‘Get It Poppin’ is a G house track in every sense of the term – Funky and deep, but ghetto and gangster. Listen to them both below, and pick up the EP today on Beatport!

In anticipation of his forthcoming Bring Me Home EP out next week, Prep School Recordings artist Wilks is offering up a free original tune! “Fuck The Barkin” is a fresh mix of contemporary LA deep house and classic ghetto house, fans of Sharam Jey, Kolombo and even Jonas Rathsman will be all over this one… Here’s what the man himself had to say about the track:

“Fuck the Barkin’s chopped and screwed hip-hop vocals are weaved between a chugging bassline and classic house chords. Borrowing samples from ‘1once Again’ by A Tribe Called Quest, this track is both dark and dance-worthy.” -Wilks

Found another diamond in the rough. The Venice Beach native Erik Wilkinson aka Wilks has only emerged on soundcloud a few months ago, but already has the right idea by releasing free originals from the get go. The style provokes classic house chords carried by deep basslines and funky riffs, with vox samples from the likes of Q-Tip, Bob Marley, and The Chili Peppers that prove hauntingly perfect. His most recent single “Ghetto” is below, along with with my other favorites from his so far. Grab these below and follow this dude, let’s see where he goes…
