So I found out about the show several months ago. So I was already going to be there. Then they added Teeko to the bill! I’ve been following Teeko for about a year ever since I saw him on the Mikidz show.

So, I wanted to make sure I was in attendance! But I was secretly dreaming about a way to get on the show. Then later on, I saw this video on Goalcast and that settled it.

MUTEMATH – Monument (Quiet Entertainer Remix)

MUTEMATH recently had a remix contest for their song, ‘Monument’. Pretty great song.

They had released it with a couple of pretty decent remixes. They dropped the LaLa remix which appears in the video above. Also, the Tim Gunter remix that came with the contest announcement. I heard a lot of pretty great remixes, including the eventual winning Disero Remix and more recently the new Kasbo Remix. I wanted to let you all hear my remix in case you missed it. No I didn’t win but I still like it and I hope you like it too.

I did use a sample from a certain song but then also did some vibey stuff and added some scratches and I was channeling some chillstep. You can download the remix from my bandcamp. Let me know what you think.

New Music Video: Quiet Entertainer Orchestra – Companion (Live at FooBar)

I just had a great show at Foobar in East Nashville this past weekend with Quiet Entertainer Orchestra! I’m excited to be able to share some footage from that night! I asked Maurice Barrett to come to the show and do what he does. You might remember Maurice (aka 247) because he made this video for me. And he made this one. So you already know the results are going to be great. Anyway, here is the video. Special thanks to Bruce, Philip, & Jed who were part of the band that night. And extra EXTRA special thanks to Devin who added the live visuals.

Quiet Entertainer Orchestra at FooBAR Too w/ Undiscover, Hobbledeions, and Rain

The show is tonight! I’m very excited to finally do this show. It will be my first time doing a headlining show with the live band, Quiet Entertainer Orchestra. As you’ve seen, Q.E.O. is just a  live interpretation of my previous DJ tracks. We’re playing tonight at Foobar Too which is the venue side.

Also performing are Undiscover. Kind of a party-core, rave hip hop group. Similar to Die Antwoord.

Hobbledeions is hard to explain. He’s kind of a noise rock drummer playing hip hop beats both on a sampler and a drum kit. I’m excited to see him.

Rain is an MC in town. He kind of sounds like Tyler the Creator to me but he does a lot of cool things with his voice too. On the low, he makes killer beats too! Better than mine. 😛 I wish I were kidding.

This show will be great! Come on out to FooBAR too.

Clams Casino X Gold Panda & Starslinger ft. Yelawolf (Quiet Entertainer mix)

This is an excerpt from the set I just did opening for Orchard Lounge. I came out of my Blue Sky Black Death remix into this Gold Panda – StarSlinger remix. I got the idea from hearing DJ Shadow’s All Basses Covered when he had Bun B. I figured it’d work with Yelawolf. Also went into it with Clams Casino for good measure. Mixed out of it with Minnesota. A highlight from an entire set.
