If you know Patricia “Twink” Little, then you know how much she loves Kanye West. “I used to joke that I would marry Kanye,” Twink says. “And if we had kids, one of them would be named KanyeNay.”
So it should come as no surprise that Twink’s debut project—-KanyeNay East: A Snares & Kixtape—-is a tribute to the Chicago MC and his multifaceted production. The seven-track download, released last night, finds the Mambo Sauce drummer adding distinctive live percussion to Kanye’s most recent work, including “Hell of a Life” and “All Of The Lights.” On “Power,” Twink ratchets up the already-energetic remix with crisp percussion, amplifying the original’s…well, power.
And while Kanye’s songs are plenty dynamic, Twink says she wanted to make them better while showcasing her talents as a producer. Twink’s next project will feature all original work from musicians from the DMV and beyond. Until then, she’s hoping Kanye will listen to her current tape and dig the sound.
