MP3: Donwill - "Love Junkie (Wallpaper Remix)" Feat The Park


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Donwill - "Love Junkie (Wallpaper Remix)" Feat The Park

Second Remix From 11 Inch Records' Love Junkie EP Matches Donwill With Wallpaper, The Park

The Song:

The song that started it all. In March 2010, Donwill released his debut solo album, Don Cusack In High Fidelity, a concept project themed around the cult classic film High Fidelity. Following the release, Donwill created this remix, which ended up in the hands of DJ Eleven, who early last month released an entire Love Junkie EP, featuring a variety of remixes and renditions on the original single. "When I heard the remix Donwill did with Wallpaper, I was sold," explains Eleven. And now, following last month's So Shifty Remix of the "Love Junkie" single, Donwill, DJ Eleven, and 11 Inch Records are excited to release this remix for fans.

This track, which debuted this week at number 33 on the CMJ Hip-Hop chart, features The Park and Wallpaper. While the So Shifty remix resonated with the heavy bass and beating drums of dubstep, this new remix once again comes complete with an entirely new feel; a pulsing, four-to-the-floor drum line and an infectious guitar vamp, courtesy of Wallpaper's production work and the live sounds of The Park, offers the listener a more soulful take. Wallpaper, serving double duty as producer and singer for the track, laces the song with a catchy hook: "I'm addicted to your touch / When you're near me I lose control / And we ain't never met / Baby I need you tonight / I'm addicted to the feeling / But somehow end up empty inside / And I can't find the love..." While these two 11 Inch Records remixes of "Love Junkie" have offered fans with contrasting makeovers and refurbished vibe, the one constant remains Donwill, as he raps, "A well done fling is a beautiful thing."
