Akira The Don x Fat Tony – Twin Peaks

Akira The Don x Fat Tony – Twin Peaks

Akira The Don’s Twin Peaks theme remix, now with added raps from Texas rapper Fat Tony.

Celebrating the weird and wonderful world of David Lynch’s return to Twin Peaks, Akira the Don released an instrumental remix of the famous theme back in May.

Originally composed by Angelo Badalamenti, ATD subtly reworked the track with his trademark tight snares and hi-hats. At the time a vocal version was promised, and true to his word, here it is. Alongside Akira The Don’s verses are bars from Texas, Houston rapper Fat Tony.

About Akira The Don | Akira The Don is a world-famous DJ, producer, artist, songwriter, illustrator, actor, public speaker and “one man party machine” based in Hollywood, Los Angeles. He’s a resident DJ at “LA’s hottest celebrity hangout” Blind Dragon , and plays regularly at Bootsy Bellows, The Mondrian, The Roosevelt, and many other legendary night spots.

About Fat Tony | As a first-generation Nigerian-American raised in his city’s historic Third Ward, heritage has always been important to Fat Tony. One of his earliest memories is of a parade of black cowboys riding down the local main street on MLK Day, blaring the good doctor’s speeches over zydeco tracks. His childhood home was filled with records—King Sunny Adé and Jimmy Cliff from his father’s collection, his mother’s jazz and soul, Granny’s gospel.
