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
Hey friends! My new single, “Do You Want Me Or Not?” was released everywhere music is sold today. This is the 2nd song we’ve put out so far from my upcoming record “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks”, and we just started shopping the record around to labels this week. The next few weeks should be interesting! As with most things in this industry, the first week of sales and downloads matters a great deal – so if you are into it, click HERE to get it from iTunes now or click HERE to get it from CD Baby!
I worked with David Appaloosa (from The Hugs) on “Do You Want Me Or Not?” and the track was produced by Gino Mari. There is also a killer remix of “Turn Me Out” on this one by 80′s new wave gods Animotion! So excited about the folks I’ve been working with on this new record. Oh my god.
Exciting news! I’m going into the studio next week with Bill Wadhams, lead singer of Animotion, to re-record vocals for the Animotion remake of my song “Turn Me Out“. The track will be the flipside to my upcoming single “Do You Want Me Or Not?“, out September 25th. This new single is the 2nd pre-release from my new record, “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks“, coming December 4th.
I’ve loved Animotion since I was a kid, so working with them on this is really special. Click on the picture below to go to their website and watch the video for their song “Obsession” below that!
My new single “Do You Want Me Or Not?” comes out 3 weeks from today (on Tuesday, 9/25/12)! This is the 2nd track off of my upcoming record “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks”, which is coming out on 12/4/2012.
