The Winning Watch

Congratulations to Michael Dixson, Elizabeth Dolitka, and Janabananaky, who were randomly picked to receive the winning design!

Modify Watches was kind enough to send me one too, as you can see in the photo above (you can tell I’m a pianist by that big vein).

It’s weird wearing a watch again, but a lot easier than pulling out my phone to check the time! Several times I wondered, “Where is that ticking coming from?”

Productivity

Many of you noticed that “Productivity” from the new EP sounds a lot like “Fireflies” by Owl City. It does, and not by coincidence.

Last year I was hired by Ubisoft to create a two-minute soundalike version of “Fireflies” for their Just Dance Kids 2014 video game.

Dissecting the track in such detail gave me a deep appreciation for the production, and inspired me to write a new song with the same set of sounds:

I know what you’re thinking… alert the copyright police!

The Motions (Nikmo Remix)

Nicholas Murphy O’Brien a.k.a. DJ Nikmo makes me feel old and lazy.

At age 15, he’s already produced over 600 tracks, including an amazing remix of my soon-to-be-released (really) song “The Motions.”

Here’s a preview:

I’ve been done with my five originals for the Adjustments Pt. 2 EP for over two months now. At this point, I’m just waiting on the last of the remixes to roll in, and I can finally release it!

Rent (Club Edit)

Raise your hand if you knew that Rent was a Liza Minnelli cover, not a Pet Shop Boys cover.

I knew that too, but it must have slipped my mind when I wrote about Matt’s and my EP release, and nobody bothered to correct me.

EDIT: That’s because it’s not true! Liza Minnelli covered the Pet Shop Boys song on her album, produced by none other than Pet Shop Boys! And here I am spreading misinformation. Thanks to everyone who set me straight!

Color Theory featured in Electronic Sound

Many moons ago, I submitted to an opportunity on ReverbNation, along with 2251 other electronic artists. I had completely forgotten about it when I received an email notifying me that I’d made the cut!

My cover of Depeche Mode’s “But Not Tonight” is featured alongside nine other tracks in issue 6 of Electronic Sound, a really cool iPad magazine that can also be downloaded as a PDF.

Take a look: (click to enlarge)

They are going to interview the artist who gets the most votes in their next issue, so if you’d like to vote for me, just download the app and click the shiny “VOTE NOW” button next to my song. Much appreciated!
