Carrie Wilds has been about on your iTunes in some capacity for a while now; the songstress has contributed her vocals to a variety of tracks from domestic and international producers alike (Drop The Lime, Crookers and more) and always had the ability to have her voice shine through whatever track was presented to her.

She didn’t disappoint, taking us around Brooklyn and Manhattan to her favorite spots. Check out the world of Carrie Wilds after the jump.

For many, the first thing that comes to mind after hearing the words “AC Slater” is Zach Morris’ partner in crime—a shirtless Mario Lopez equipped with an awkwardly fuzzy fro-mullet. Although this mistake comes as no surprise to Trouble & Bass’ AC Slater (aka Aaron Clevenger), the renowned DJ-Producer sometimes has to remind people how different he actually is from the fictional Bayside High jock with whom he shares his name. Starting out in the rave scene at a young age, AC Slater has had his hand in quite a few aspects of the indefinable, ever-expanding world of “dance music,” his latest creative venture being his record label, Party Like Us Records (which he started with B.Rich and Udachi).
