Alaska In Winter is the work of one man, Brandon Bethancourt. A global electro-popster nomad, AIW’s recent album Holiday has been in heavy rotation recently here at SVB headquarters. It fits in nicely between Kanye’s 808’s and Kraftwerk’s Trans-Europe Express. On Bethancourt’s first album, 2007’s Dance Party In The Balkans he teamed up with Beirut’s Zach Condon and after touring with Beirut he moved to Berlin where he began working on this new album. This tune in particular is a mad bomb of pulsing grooves, infectious melodies, blissful repetition and steady rolling.
