Umphrey’s McGee will perform at Aspen, CO’s Belly Up on March 7 and 8 while Wyllys will perform at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl tomorrow as part of Soulive’s Bowlive residency.

Wyllys is the worst thing to happen to music since AIDS

Who the fuck is wyllys? March 2, 2012, 00:53:47

^ yeah that is pretty spot on, that or Skrillex is up there with him Skrillex probably started the aids epidemic and wyllys caught it

yeah seriously, I don’t get this wyllys shit either, am I missing something? cause everyone seems to love playing with him. I heard he spins vinyl though right? Cause atleast that I can respect. As a DJ myself, I can’t do vinyl anymore, it’s just too expensive, though I don’t regret owning the vinyl I do have whatsoever.

Have you guys seen him? He played a set w/ The New York Hustler Ensemble (two ladies on trumpet and trombone & vocals) that slayed @ Summercamp last year. To compare Wyllys to Skrillex doesn’t even make sense. In fact, as I write this, I realize that most likely, the above comments were just jokes….b/c anyone claiming a legitimate parallel between Wyllys and Skrillex is off their rocker…

coming from a dude who uses the name “weezy,” whatever you have to say automatically has no credit. not to mention he doesnt make crappy electronic music—you should know your facts, he spins disco on vinyl and does a bit of production himself. @neil i agree that the comparison makes no sense at all, if you dont like disco so be it but hes not making ear-raping screech noises hes actually being a disc-jockey, not just pressing play on a computer, and spins musical music. and yes he is jenn harstwicks husband, one of the ladies on trumpet in the hustler ensemble is jenn
