The Aikiu is Alex Aikiu- a French producer making noise with his very first single Just Can’t Sleep. The track in itself is pretty sick, but it also came along with one great video (above), both released last week.
What also caught my eye was this gnarly story Last.fm featured on him. Check it below:
Imagine someone at the pub calling you ‘Madonna with a dick … but with the voice of Simon le Bon’. Would it rub you the wrong way? Would you give the messanger of said comment a cold hard stare with the evil eye? You betcha. Not Alex Aikiu though.
That’s because it was told by none other than Nile Rodgers; legendary disco innovator with his band Chic and celebrated studio wiz for, amongst many others: Carly Simon, Diana Ross, Sister Sledge, David Bowie, Duran Duran and… Madonna. <click for post>
Thanks Big Stereo for news on the video clip.
