Remix World

Updates updates, right?

What’s new in our world? Hm…

Well, we’ve been writing with SNRG for a while now, and have our first song out with them, Fated.  Here’s the cool video from their friends Matt Padilla and AC Lalata (MATTxAC/Philippine All Stars). We’ve had this in the can for a while now, but here it is:

Over the winter, I took Deadmau5’s Masterclass and learned a few things. I know not everybody is down with him, but it was pretty well balanced and refreshingly candid.

It definitely helped me shore up a few ideas that I’d been trying to crystallize my head around, and presented it in a direct way. Not sure how beginners would fare, but it seemed wide ranging enough.

They had a remix competition in March, which we went ahead and tried our hand. Unfortunately, I had a massive ear infection and could only hear out of one ear! Not cool winter. Anyway, here’s the lyric video:

Now I know it’s no Wes Anderson movie, but this was my first go using iMovie. I don’t think visual arts is my future, but at least I’m learning something new every day.

Finally Fall….

It’s been so crazy hot these past few months. You’d think I’d be used to it, being a former equator city dweller, but I think I’ve gotten soft here in the land of froyo and smoothies.

We’re playing 3 shows in October, all at different cool situations…

dscf9897-1024x683 Porchfest 2015! thanks to Pablo Raw for the photo.

This coming Saturday, we’re rocking out at Porchfest in Adams Morgan Oct 1. More specifically, our friend Lawrence (of Saffron Holiday) is hosting a lawnlike stage in front of his house. It’s nice and elevated, so a good view, and they usually get crowded on the sidewalk, but it’s not a main thoroughfare in Adams Morgan, so not too bad watching off the street. It will probably be our last outdoor show for the year, since its going to be blitz cold this winter.

After that, we will be in Fredericksburg that Friday for Fredericksburg All Ages‘ 10th Anniversary. I’ve always loved the mission of FAA, and their execution is excellent in terms of getting it out the everybody, how friendly they are, and ultimately, providing a good place to hang out without having to get blizasted all the time.

Then we’re back in DC to play at Treehouse Lounge for the Halloween weekend! I’m not really a dressing up type of person, but I did wear a rat attack victim to R&R Hotel once. That got a pretty strong response. We’ll be rocking with our boy Radio Rahim, and probably backing him on a song or two, if not more. I’m hoping to have some other friends join us on the lineup to make a family affair.

Anyway, that’s that. We’ll be debuting some of the new songs that we’re writing for the EP, just to see what it will sound like live and if something is just too much cowbell. We’d love to see you…..

Back Home

Heyo! Being back in the Philippines was a crazy time, but we’re glad to be back.  Before Emil left, we got to see our friends in SNRG and guest on their radio show.  I (and Emil) had never visited Pampanga before, so it was a whirlwind 24 hour trip.

 

Right now we’re starting to finish up all the choruses and start doing scratch vocals for where everything is going to be.  It’s been a little hectic this past year, so the writing isn’t going as quickly as it should, but we should still have something out before the end of this year.
