Derek Olson – “The Going Price For Home” (D-Roc Remix)

Sunday, December 27th, 2009

If you haven’t heard of The Prize Fighter Inferno, today is your lucky day. They are one of my favorites.

They are one of those bands that people either really love or really hate. And I think most of that is because of Claudio Sanchez’ voice; I like his voice. But some dislike him for the same reason I like him. Oh well, nothing wrong with being polarizing.

Prize Fighter Inferno is Claudio’s side project; he is also a member of Coheed & Cambria. (another band people really love or really hate)
I just finished up on a remix of one of my favorite PFI song, The Going Price For Home.

Derek Olson – “Digital Tigers” (Surgery Mix)

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

Last week my brother Logan was having his shoulder operated on. While in the waiting room, I was going through my music and got some inspiration. Funny how creativity hits at times like that.

So I sat with my laptop and headphones in a corner of this large waiting room, full of people. The sound of 20 different conversations, and the irritating buzz of mid-morning television. My youngest brother sleeps in the chair next to me, and my parents solve crossword puzzles.

Every once in a while a doctor comes around in scrubs, looking for a certain family.

This song is basically a glitch-rock mashup of two songs by Thrice, “Digital Sea” and “Paper Tigers.”

Have a listen my darlings.

Friday, December 4th, 2009

I just uploaded my new album, so head over to my music page and check it out. It’s a free download so what do you have to lose?

It was a lot of fun making this album. I know you’ll enjoy it. Its got beautiful guitars, processed beats, big synths, and some ambient sounds.

Also used some samples from some of my favorite bands, such as Blue October, Brand New, and At The Drive-In.

Lemme know what you think. Get it here
