After premiering the anthem “Get Gone” on Vibe last week, Shana Halligan (Thievery Corporation, Bitter:Sweet) and Chuck Wild (Captain Planet, The Beatards) found fan love in the form of a send-off video to soon-to-be former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, Donald Sterling. The video features news grabs from the Sterling controversy cleverly edited to “Get Gone”. Meanwhile, “Get Gone” is now available on iTunes, and to celebrate, here’s a FREEmp3 of the remix, by Chuck Wild.
It’s been a busy week for Shana. Currently on tour with Thievery Corporation, Consequence of Sound just premiered the video for “Depth of My Soul,” her song with Thievery Corporation. The stunning video features Shana as a star-crossed lover.
Most well known as the lead singer/songwriter of the pop group Bitter:Sweet, Shana Halligan’s debut solo EP, Paper Butterfly charted at #3 on iTunes when it was released in 2012, and became a Top 5 Most Requested on KCRW. She has collaborated with artists ranging from Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) to dance guru Morgan Page.
Collaborator Chuck Wild is the producer / DJ behind Captain Planet and The Beatards. Captain Planet’s mixtape, “Mystery Trip Vol. 1” was included in Sasha Frere-Jones’ “Best Music of 2012”, and his new album, Esperanto Slang, coming this summer on Bastard Jazz Records, features the single “Poquito Mas ft. Chico Mann”. Chuck Wild has done remixes (both official and bootleg) for Lorde, Banks, Little Dragon, Katy B, Alice Russell, Ana Tijoux, Mayer Hawthorne and many more.
