Today we're going down the rabbit hole with Vancouver duo Average Citizens. "Ask Alice" is a really interesting track using samples from a Jefferson Airplane song called "White Rabbit". I've heard the original song described as having the ability to make you feel high while completely sober. This unique interpretation maintains that same energy with an added bounce and groove that makes it almost impossible to stay still! Released in late February by InStereo Recordings this track pairs that psychedelic funk with some House style bass and a splash of Trance thrown in for good measure. One thing I particularly loved was the buildup and crescendo/drop synced perfectly with singer Grace Slick's vocals. This same effect is brilliantly crafted into several other parts of the track. Considered one of the 500 greatest songs of all time; being able to make it your own is no small feat, one which was successfully done in my humble opinion. If you're looking for your own white rabbit then don't hesitate to go down this rabbit hole that Average Citizens have dug!
