Your Pop Alternative Source
So how is your tour going to pan out for you and the band? Will you be Djing and playing originals?
Actually, it’s all fully live. It’s a mix of the original material and remixes. When I started thinking about the tour– the goal was to eventually play more original stuff. Most people know the remixes though so it just makes sense to play some of that stuff as well. It’s a fully live set with a four piece rock band. We have a light show, a visual show…Continue

Today RAC releases an EP of five “Let Go” remixes by the Krystal Klear, Holy Ghost!, Cherry Cherry Boom Boom, Robert DeLong, and Sir Sly. Hear Holy Ghost!’s typically suave and synthy take on the track -…Continue

Considering this is your debut album of all-original material, did you find writing and producing your own tracks was a lot more difficult to do? Was there any part of the process that was a particular challenge?
Outwardly remixing and writing original music are complete opposites, but I find them to be practically the same process. At least for me. The…Continue

Anyways, this video is great, this song is great, please do not eat other humans. -…Continue
