May 28, 2016 12:11pm | Fact Magazine
A celebration of the remix’s power to make you hear songs in a different way.
Swedish singer Robyn posted on her website yesterday that she has invited nine artists to remix tracks from her catalogue and career, including Chicago’s The Black Madonna, French production duo Cassius, and German musician Wolfgang Voigt.
The remixes, under the title RBN/RMX, will be debuted at a series of live performances in upcoming weeks, starting with Boston Calling tonight, Governor’s Ball in NYC, and Field Trip in Toronto. A release will follow.
Robyn included a note on her website about the project, saying “remixes make me listen to a song in a different way; they stretch you out as a listener and leave space for other things that a pop song usually doesnt. I hope to be able to share this experience with my audiences at Governors Ball, Boston Calling, and Field Trip over the next week and just dancing together…”

Mark Pritchard and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith collaborate on Now:Now
May 28, 2016 11:48am | Fact Magazine
Synth enthusiasts come together for new track series.
English producer Mark Pritchard and American composer Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith have come together for a unique collaboration titled ‘Now:Now’, released this week as part of a new remix series sponsored by The Absolut Company. A new installment in the series will be released every last Thursday of the month.
The track sees the pair combine their interests in synthesizers and gentle compositions, which they both explored in their recent album releases – Under The Sun for Mark Pritchard and EARS for Aurelia Smith.
The artwork for the track comes from Jonathan Zawada, the Australian visual artist who collaborated with Pritchard on Under The Sun. The image is a 3-printed bust of Pritchard.
Earlier this month, FACT sat down with Pritchard and Zawada to discuss the world-building qualities of the new album.
In March, we also visited Aurelia Smith at her Los Angeles home where she gave us an intimate performance of her modular synthesis orchestra. Watch that below.

It hasnt even been a week since Courtney Barnett conquered America with a raucous Saturday Night Live performance, but it looks as if the Australian singer-songwriter was just getting started.

The album has been a hit on the live television circuit, with both The National and Bonnie Prince Billy appearing on CBS This Morning earlier this week to perform their contributions.

L.A. rapper Dumbfoundead attacks Hollywoods whitewashing in Safe video
May 28, 2016 9:59am | Fact Magazine
Koreatown artist inserts himself in classic Hollywood clips with face capture technology.
Jonathan Park, the L.A.-based rapper known as Dumbfoundead, has released a video for the song ‘Safe’ that offers a stinging commentary of the whitewashing in Hollywood and the lack of representation for Asian-Americans.
The song was written in light of the last Academy Awards ceremony, which were heavily criticised for their lack of diversity with the popular hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. On SoundCloud, Park said he “wrote this song out of frustration.”
The video for ‘Safe’, unveiled on YouTube earlier this week, takes the song’s subject matter one step further by using face capture technology to insert Park in a variety of classic Hollywood and American TV moments including Indiana Jones, Titanic, The Matrix, Full House, and Friends among many others. In between those scenes, Park plays the father role in a TV-perfect American family but eventually even that ends up being whitewashed.
The lyrics to the song can be found on SoundCloud including the excellent first line “the other night i watched the Oscars and the roster of the only yellow men were all statues / we a quarter of the population theres a room of fuckin 1 percenters laughing at you.”
Park also gets props for throwing in a reference to the late ODB and his now immortal “Wu-Tang is for the children!R...
