Feels Like Fire EP Out Now

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

I’m extremely exited to announce my latest release, the ‘Feels Like Fire’ EP! While working on this EP I decided it was important to me that this work stand apart as having it’s own feeling and vibe that is different from my previous works. While I personally love the dark and aggressive sound of my previous release the “Prophication” EP I wanted this EP to show some different aspects of my musical sound. To me this EP stays true to the fun of the more bangin sound that I’m known for but at the same time has moments that are more emotional, vibey and about “the Feels”… hence the title “Feels Like Fire”.

I want to give a quick shout out to my producer friends Crywolf and Must Die who each wrote a song with me on the EP and my friends Mariana Bell, Alyssa Palmer, and SunSun who all lent me their amazing voices and sang on the EP! (Thanks Guys!)

Any way enough chit chat I’ll let the music do the rest of the talking! The full EP doesn’t drop until June 24th but as an added bonus and a thank you to the fans I’m offering you two ways to grab the song “Nobody Gets Out Alive Part II” right away for free…


Preorder the “FEELS LIKE FIRE” EP and get “Nobody Gets Out Alive Part II” instantly!
(You can also preview all of the other unreleased songs from the ep here!)

or download it through my soundcloud for free with no strings attached!
(although it would be nice if you give me a follow over on SC while you’re at it.)

Cee Lo Green Performs Le Castle Vania Remix on BMA’s

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Cee Lo Green piano flip

Hey guys just wanted to share a little video clip with you all. My homie Cee Lo Green recently gave an amazing performance on the Billboard Music Awards. He played a medley of hits including the massive single “Crazy” (from his Gnarls Barkley project) a new single “Bright Lights, Bigger City” and a PC version of MY REMIX OF HIS SMASH SINGLE “FUCK YOU”! This was an especially amazing moment for me, getting to see a song i produced and wrote music for performed by an artist that i have so much respect for on the Billboard Music Awards! Any way needless to say he killed it with his unique vocal style and even more unique show! Check it out for yourself below!

And in case you missed it you can hear the full version here

D.I.M. – IS YOU (LE CASTLE VANIA REMIX) *FREE DOWNLOAD*

D.I.M. - IS YOU (LE CASTLE VANIA REMIX)

Alright so today is my first day down here in Austin, Tx for SXSW 2011 and I am PUMPED to rage with everyone! (Click here for more info on my SXSW shows)… However i know there are a lot of you guys out there that can’t make it down to SXSW this year so i thought i would give away a little audio freebie for you guys to kick off your own parties with where ever you are! Most of you guys probably recognize D.I.M.‘s original version of Is You as one of his biggest club smashers to date. The original single came out on Boys Noize Records way back in 2007 and was definitely one of my personal favorites of the time! Any way being the rad guy that he is D.I.M. sent me the parts to do a remix of this song way back when. I was super stoked to do it but unfortunately the timing didn’t work out and i got busy with other songs and projects and didn’t get around to doing the remix. Flash-forward to a couple months ago when i re-heard the original Is You and was reminded of how much i love this song. I decided to go ahead and finally bust out the forgotten remix… I knew it was far too late to do any sort of real release for the remix since the original came out quite some time ago but i figured what the hell i’ll just do it for fun and give it away for free! After all isn’t music supposed to be about having fun and sharing your creativity? Any way enough with the saga here’s the tune. Crank it up and enjoy!
