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).

My new video, “Turn Me Out“, made its exclusive world premier over at Portland Monthly Magazine today! Watch it HERE first. They interviewed me for the piece as well, which you can read while you are there (or via the transcript below). We chatted about the new record (“Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks”, due out Tuesday, December 4th), my relationship adventure, and the “Turn Me Out” video itself.
World Premiere: Logan Lynn’s New Music Video, “Turn Me Out” – The electro-pop darling “just want[s] your love”
Local electro-pop (emotronic?) musician Logan Lynn has been on a two-year do-gooder music hiatus while he manned public relations and innovations for the Q Center (among other things, using his connections to bring in national musicians for concert series). But that’s not to say he hasn’t been busy behind studio doors. He released the catchy, dirty, dancefloor single “Turn Me Out” in June, and Culturephile’s delighted to post the world premiere of the video (that’s right: we got it before MTV or Logo)—a rather atmospheric ode to the joyous imprisonment that is love.
The single is from his upcoming album called Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks, slated for a 12/4 release. It’s a love letter of sorts to his fellow. We had a short chat with Logan about the song, the relationship, the record, and writing about happy material, below the video.
We should mention for our more delicate listeners that the lyrics are a little more than just obliquely sexual.
PoMo: Where did the inspiration for the song and video come from? It seems a paradoxical celebration of the imprisonment of love.
