CMJ 2012 was such a great experience for me.  I was fortunate enough to host a CMJ-themed episode for MTV’s Weird Vibes.  This meant that I got to skip lines, check out a ton of live music, hang out with the rich and fabulous and interview bands.  If there was ever a gig I was born to do, this is it!  You’ll be hearing more and seeing the episode very soon and of course, I will let you know all the details.   But for now, I want to hip you to some singers and bands you might not be familiar with.

This post is about Scottish electronic music composer Oliver Sabin aka Unicorn Kid.  As of this writing, Unicorn Kid has just turned 21 years old!  He started making music at age 15 and by age 16 was remixing Pet Shop Boys (for their single “Did You See Me Coming”)!  We talked a bit about Pet Shop Boys as they are one of my favorite groups and Unicorn Kid talked about being involved in a scandal when the press reported how much he made for the remix! The future is very bright for Unicorn Kid and I am very excited to hear more great things from him!  Thanks again for being very cool to talk to!
