Logan Lynn’s “We Can’t Stop” Cover Featured On SugarBang (Los Angeles) Today

Logan Lynn Featured on SugarBang This Week

Los Angeles entertainment & pop culture website SugarBang.com has featured my “We Can’t Stop” cover today on their site.

Check it out HERE.

From SugarBang: (9/19/2013)

“Portland based musician Logan Lynn has released a great cover of “We Can’t Stop” from Miley Cyrus. Produced by Gino Mari, who was also responsible for producing Lynn’s 2012 album ‘TRAMP STAMPS AND BIRTHMARKS’ which we raved about, the cover is completely different from the original. When I first heard this cover, my first thought was, if The O.C. was still on air, this would have been a perfect fit. I really liked the stripped down and raw rendition of the song. Also being sung by a proud and openly gay singer, I felt that the lyrics hit on a deeper level of openess and acceptance. Here’s what Logan had to say about the song and Miley’s VMAs performance: I thought what Miley did on the VMAs was hilarious. I mean…Robin Thicke is a misogynistic pig, but that’s not Miley’s fault. She’s just young and awkward and having fun. I would have totally Twerked on him and everyone else in my way at her age. Going nuts and telling authority figures to go screw themselves is part of growing up. Also, where do I get one of those giant foam fingers she had for that performance? Is that a sports thing?

Yeah, we agree. Ok, now onto the song! Oh did we tell you that it’s also available as a free download? Oh Logan, you’re such giver.”

“Logan Lynn Covers Miley Cyrus’ ‘We Can’t Stop’ (VIDEO)”

Portland-based openly gay musician Logan Lynn is known for his dance and electronic music, but lately his sound has taken a different direction with his latest single, “Everything You Touch Turns To Gold“.

Now he’s released a free download of his cover of Miley Cyrus’ hit single, “We Can’t Stop” that continues his foray into a bold new direction.

Lynn has been releasing music since 2000. He gained national recognition when his music and videos were played on Logo TV, and while he may be known for his electro-emo music, on his website, he speaks about his new sound and breaking away from the music for which he’s historically been known:

‘You may notice that this cover (and my latest single, released 8/13) are a bit of a departure from the electronics I’ve become synonymous with over the course of the past 15 years. These are just a glimpse into the new direction I’m headed in sonically. I have to keep changing things up or I get bored. This round I’ve put down the dance music a little and Gino has been playing all kinds of instruments instead. It’s been turning out really warm and special so far as a result. I figured this cold, dead pop song was the perfect thing to try and bring to life. Don’t get me wrong — I actually really like Miley’s version, too…but it’s not particularly warm.’

So if Cyrus’ song has grown a bit stale after hearing it played everywhere for the past few months, then check out Lynn’s version to get a “warmer,” different take on this mammoth hit.”

Flufftronix Releases Remastered “Feed Me To The Wolves” Remix – Download FREE Here!

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
