Qrion remixes Skylar Spence’s “Affairs”

October 14, 2015 4:12 pm

Skylar Spence’s “Affairs” gets the remix treatment by Japanese producer, Qrion. Take a listen via The Fader. Ryan DeRobertis, the voice behind Skylar Spence, says “‘Affairs’ is the song on ‘Prom King’ i hold nearest and dearest, and i was so stoked to hand it over to one of my favorite producers. Everything that Qrion has touched this year turned to gold, and her spin on “Affairs” is spellbinding, easily one of my favorite remixes of the year (biased as i may be).”

Pick up Skylar Spence’s debut album in the Carpark shop & iTunes.

“Half Dome” music video

September 18, 2015 3:39 pm

Last year, Chaz Bundick hiked to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite Park, the inspiration for his song “Half Dome” (off this year’s What For?), where he happened to meet R. Adam Prieto, a photographer and, coincidentally, a Toro y Moi fan. Chaz invited Prieto to create a music video for ‘Half Dome,’ and this spectacular clip is the result.

Check out the beautiful scenery in “Half Dome” here. The track was taken from the band’s album, What For?, available now on the Carpark shop and iTunes. Video was directed by R. Adam Prieto
