A collaboration that began around the clubs of the Northside of Chicago now takes place on digital channels across the world as Shaun J. Wright and Alinka make a victory lap of sorts on Twirl!

Shaun & Alinka’s profiles have been raised so high in the last year that it’d be easy enough to hand off material like this to some of the top dance music labels in the world. And the latter would kill to have it. But the two return to the label (named after a residency receding into a dot in the rearview mirror) where they started, together at least, with the dark and haunting Walk Into the Unknown. Sinister vibes abound, with acid bubbles popping like sodium lights and forming a flashing halo around Shaun’s haunting vocal. Alinka’s remix is primitive and seductive, like a cubist deconstruction of the original into the fundamental elements. “Dreams of Sunshine” blends a soulful vocal from Shaun with hectic, hyperactive dark or deep tech. If you like the dubby sort of sounds that Twirl and Shaun and Alinka have specialized in, this is for you.
