Favorite ThisMilkman - Neon Eyes

Published: August 22, 2012

Bursting out of his cubbyhole as a "mash-up producer," L.A.'s Milkman has spent the last couple of years testing his steel as an electro-house producer teasing the boundaries of pop music. With instantly addictive choruses and fat bass and beats in support, Gregg Luskin has been churning out some instant classics with each successive release. His latest single, "Neon Eyes," puts his sound in a stark spotlight with catchy verses and soaring choruses. Without being sugary, Milkman manages to move the feet and the heart, while still maintaining his artistic integrity. It's hard to imagine he once shredded with a punk act, this sensitive side must hide some gritty darkness just below the surface. Which you get a little taste of during the climactic drops. "Neon Eyes" comes out just in time for his Labor Day weekend at Jay-Z's Made in America festival appearance. Not bad company, at all.
