Of the new rework and Bootleg Series, A-Trak says, “I love flipping samples. It’s in my DNA as a hip-hop DJ even when I’m exploring other genres.

Ian George Premieres “The Wild & The Untamed,” Debut Album out February 15

Atwood Magazine premiered the song, noting “‘The Wild & the Untamed’ introduces Ian George as a fanciful folk troubadour with a rhythmic flow and spirited vision.
