Huge thanks to everyone who submitted tracks to the Hologram remix contest! After MUCH deliberation, along with the help of 4 other judges, we have chosen Hologram (BeeYizz Remix) and DJ Brian Yates as the winner of the $250 cash prize! We will also be releasing an official music video for the song in June, courtesy of Adrian Sotomayor (who directed the original Hologram video).
While everybody’s mix was really special this time around, we have decided to release these 5 mixes in the form of a new Remix E.P. called Dance Alone (releasing 5/7/13).
Listen and download your FREE copy of the Dance Alone E.P. from Bandcamp now:
We released the video for Hologram (the 2nd single off my new record Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks) a few weeks back and now we are hosting a remix contest for the song with a $250 cash prize and official audio release to 1st place! All runners-up will be released as well in some capacity, be it through an official distributor or via this website.
Hologram was co-written by Los Angeles indie electropop duo Father Tiger. Greg & John (aka Father Tiger) wrote and performed the music, I wrote and performed the words, melodies, and vocals…and we are all looking forward to hearing what you all come up with.

One of my favorite remixes of one of my songs is Flufftronix’s mix of “Feed Me To The Wolves” and it has been remastered and re-released by Fluffy himself. Download the remix for zero dollars HERE or click on the album cover below. Cool, huh?
From the Flufftronix Soundcloud page:
Recently I’ve been kind of rethinking my entire approach to making music, oddly enough around a quote from Cher, “If it doesn’t matter in five years, it doesn’t matter.” Music is more disposable now than it’s ever been; trying to make music that transcends flavor of the month should really be a major concern if you want to last past a few internet cycles.
I’ve been at this production thing for some now, always learning A TON as I go (for reallllll to the point that it always feels like I learn better ways to do almost anything I was doing differently 6 months ago).. and really for the most part not thinking in terms of longevity. But I think I have occasionally succeeded at it, even if by accident sometimes—case in point this remix from the Summer of 2009. I find I do my best work when I have a solid melody and harmony to work around.. which is also one of the main things I’m trying to improve on learning how to do myself in 2013.
ANYHOO I’ve been doing some mixing and mastering work lately, and know way more about this stuff now than I did in 2009.. let alone 2012! I was never really happy with my shoddy DIY master on this track, so I took some time this past weekend to fix it up. I didn’t go back into the mix—I’m a budy dude and I know this would have sucked me in!—but I did do some much more appropriate compression and limiting. Thanks, hope yall dig! -Michael / Fluff
