After working hard throughout 2010, Darwin Deez will start the new year by releasing a free mixtape on February 22 via Lucky Number Music. Partnered with colleagues like Dev Hynes (of Lightspeed Champion and Test Icicles fame) and KOOL A.D. (of Das Racist), Deez presents us with Wonky Beats, a treat that’s based on trippy flick Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. “Where’s The Chocolate,” the first single off Wonky Beats, is available on Deez’s website.



In support of the impending mixtape, Deez will embark on a winter tour, starting on March 24, at Vancouver’s Media Club. He will be on the road throughout the first half of February and will conclude his tour on February 19, at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City.
