Weird Vibes

As you all know, my life is filled with fun, excitement, art, rock & roll, celebrities and experiences that are at times too bizarre to be true, and yet, I have no reason to lie (plus I have proof).  That’s why I started carrying a camera around with me.   One of the most awesome things to happen to me in 2012 was getting a call from MTV Hive to host their CMJ-themed episode of “Weird Vibes!”  For the duration of the music festival, the uber-awesome producer of “Weird Vibes” Shirley Braha and I hit the hottest concerts in Manhattan and Brooklyn in search of buzz and vibes and we got it!

Over the course of the week, I was fortunate enough to interview Mac Demarco, DIIV, Paul Banks (Interpol), Unicorn Kid, Kitty Pryde, and Blood Orange, and appearances by Flying Lotus, Pictureplane, Mykki Blanco, Merchandise, Thieves Like Us, Hot Sugar, Twerps, Madeline Follin of Cults, and Tao Lin!  Once again, it’s nearly too good to be true, but as you will see in the video, it’s all true.

Thanks again so much to all of the artists who agreed to be interviewed.

Thanks again to Shirley Braha for being an awesome partner in crime.

Thanks again to MTV Hive for an experience I will never forget.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And with no further delay, check out the World’s #1 Blogger episode of “Weird Vibes.”

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!
