Promoting Alan Astor (If He’ll Let Me)

I’ve found another DJ to obsess about: Alan Astor of Brooklyn, New York. He’s a pretty sweet remixer. His album is posted through his myspace (for PROMOTIONAL USAGE ONLY, mind you), but you have to listen through a minute or so of irritating radio skits to get to the actual remix. Download it anyway.

Here are a few tracks by him, including his remix of Paper Planes, which you can’t find on the myspace album. I’m usually partial to Diplo’s remix of Paper Planes with Bun B and Rich Boy, but Astor’s won me over. (P.S. I have way too many remixes of Paper Planes. It’s not right, but it’s OK.)

    Especially for taking Paper Planes back to its rump shakin’ roots
