Big Data – Snowed In (Feat. Rivers Cuomo):
Big Data, the brain child of producer extraordinaire Alan Wilkis, is finally ready to grace us with another killer track, and it’s pretty much as dirty and glitch ridden as it gets. Snowed In is an electro thrash romper that infiltrates the body prompting rhythmic spasms of dance throughout. Obviously the title is a reference to NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden and is consistent with Big Data’s themes of mass surveillance and social media saturation, but we all know it wasn’t poignant politics that shot Big Data to top of the alternative charts last year.
That deliciously noxious beat isn’t the only wonderful thing this future banger has going on for it. Rivers Cuomo, lead signer and front man of Weezer, has lent his notable vocal talents to Big Data’s heavy arsenal. This collaboration is an outrageously intelligent decision, and a well executed one to boot. Cuomo’s vocals are just the stability needed to tame the erratic electronic production now widely known to pervade Big Data’s music.
Along with the release of Snowed In, Big Data has finally announced the release date and track listing for his upcoming debut album, simply titled 2.0. The highly anticipated album should be released on March 24th, and according to the track list we are in for some out of this world collaborations. Take a gander for yourself:
01 The Business of Emotion (Feat. White Sea) 02 Dangerous (Feat. Joywave) 03 Clean (Feat. Jamie Lidell) 04 The Glow (Feat. Kimbra) 05 Snowed In (Feat. Rivers Cuomo) 06 Big Dater 07 Automatic (Feat. Jenn Wasner) 08 Get Some Freedom (ft. Dragonette) 09 Sick For Me (Feat. Bear Hands) 10 Perfect Holiday (Feat. Twin Shadow)
To say I am stoked for the coming release of 2.0 is an understatement beyond belief…
