Today’s a big day for me in a few ways. For starters, today marks the completion of the Remix Rainbow Series, a six week long project that has taught me so much about not only myself but also all of my friends and musical acquaintances who have generously trusted me to re-imagine their own hard work in a new and unique form. Trust me when I say that it was an honour and a privilege.
Today’s remix artist(s) hail from Berlin, Germany and Hamilton, Canada – which may not be as weird as you think, if you actually think about it. Junior Boys are one of the top electronic acts in the game right now and getting a crack at their track, “A Truly Happy Ending” (from their recently released album It’s All True) was a real thrill. They’re actually in the middle of a huge North American tour with my main man (and Remix Rainbow alumnus) Miracle Fortress, so check ‘em out in a town near you!
Today also marks the re-release of my debut record Special Affections on Astralwerks. I couldn’t be more thrilled about the way things have worked out with this album of songs that I never really imagined anyone other than my Mom or roommates would ever hear, so thanks to any and everyone who has shown me love and support throughout this past year. I couldn’t have done this alone!
