Lana Del Rey - Stint Remix
Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” is finding a home on alternative radio with its dark and moody Dan Auerbachness.

LA producer STINT brightened up the song.

He talks about the song, “I really like it when you can completely flip the production of a track upside down, and still have it make sense with the lyrics. I thought Dan Auerbach did an amazing job on the original. It’s smokey, classy, and a bit dark… It’s like a fine scotch you sip real slow.  But I tried to look at the song from a totally different angle, and when I stripped everything but the vocals away, I found a really innocent love song. Not like an overly romantic love song… more like that tingly feeling you get in your stomach when you’re walking home from an amazing first date. Or those brief moments every once in a while when you forget about any shitty stuff going on in your life and you just feel light. That’s what this remix sounds like to me.”

Wrapped an amazing weekend in Victoria. Saturday was the Vikings exhibition at the Royal BC Museum, DeadBeetz Food truck (they’ll be Rock Festivals around Victoria, so hit it…wow) then I DJ’d a wedding.  Sunday was the Power To Be: Power to Play Adventure Race.

Team Zone was there… Team #32…and we came in 32nd place. Neat. But we raised a bunch of money for the kids, and we had fun.

Back to the grind at the radio factory and it’s another busy one.

Band of Skulls will be in Victoria on Thursday for a sold out show at Sugar.  It’s an early concert, doors at 7 PM.

I saw this great remix of BOS’s latest single “Hoochie Coochie” done by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.

Look for that remix on the Hoochie Coochie ep on July 27th.


Looking forward to Disney’s Maleficent. According to Buzzfeed Angelina Jolie personally picked Lana Del Rey to cover “Once Upon a Dream.”

Friend of the show Georgia Murray stopped by The Zone Afternoon Show to lay down an amazing live off the floor cover of Lana Del Rey‘s “Blue Jeans.”   Murray began her song by layering some vocal loops using a TC Helicon Voice Live Touch 2. I hope you enjoy!

The internet is all in a lather over the latest “it” girl to hit the blogosphere.  Such a pretty song… The artist is Brooklyn singer Lana Del Rey and the song is “Video Games.”  The song is a melancholy, achy, sultry, vintage… I dunno… other descriptions.  I’ve had it on repeat the last few days.

Pitchfork had a chance to declare her “rising” at the end of August.

Of all the articles I’ve read on Lana Del Rey, Pitchfork cuts right to it the best… even coming out swinging with the… “are you a corporate construct built to trick horny virginal video game playing hipsters?”

The song is pretty choice and the video is even more fun.
