Editors’ Notes

Sure, 2.0 is packed with ultra-hip A-list cameos—everyone from electro-soul futurist Jamie Lidell to Wye Oak vocalist Jenn Wasner shows up to sing—but the pixelated pop that fills Big Data’s first proper full-length album gets its euphoric continuity from the singular touch of Brooklyn-based producer/mastermind Alan Wilkis. Wilkis brings crunchy synths and soaring melodies to each of the album’s tracks, switching between funky, ‘80s electro-funk grooves (“Dangerous”) and full-on synth-rock rangers (“Get Some Freedom”). The story of infamous NSA contractor Edward Snowden inspires the shimmering electro-pop of “Snowed In” (which features a guest vocal by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo), while “The Glow” is a sassy anthem aided by colorful New Zealand vocalist Kimbra. Big Data was selected as a part of our 2015 New Artist Spotlight.

Customer Reviews


I found "dangerous" in the summer and I loved it. I clicked this album hoping for the same sort of vibe and I found something better.

Great Album Bro

Owning and listening to the other songs already available, I can see this album is going to be great. My favorite song is Business of Emotion.

Spectacular Album

Sexy beats, provocative lyrics, a good sense of humor, and a wide variety of influences and featured artists. What more could you want in an album? Big Data expertly combines modern sounds with nods to the 70s, 80s, and 90s for a result that is fresh and current. The topical lyrics neither worship nor condemn the current digital state of affairs, but they are insightful and often amusing. My favorite tracks are Business of Emotion, Big Dater, Sick for Me, and Perfect Holiday, but the entire album is a big, sexy delight.

During the tail end of the 2000s and the beginning of the 2010s, Wilkis established himself as a remix producer for the likes of Temper Trap ("Sweet Disposition"), Fenech-Soler ("Demons"), and Yelle ("Que Veux-Tu") --...
