Skylar Spence remixes A Sunny Day in Glasgow

March 7, 2016 12:08 pm

Check out Skylar Spence’s latest remix as he takes on A Sunny Day In Glasgow’s “I Can’t Live Without Your Love.” The track is streaming now via Stereogum.

Ryan DeRobertis, aka Skylar Spence, on the track: “Planning Weed Like It’s Acid/Life is Loss was one of my favorite 2015 releases, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to remix my favorite track off the 2xEP, ‘I Can’t Live Without Your Love.’ When I made the remix I was a week away from the start of a tour supporting Madeon, and I was having a lot of anxiety over that, which ended up translating into some cool creative power. I was listening to a lot of chicago house at the time and playing a great playstation game called Hot Shots Golf, and I tried to blend those two very different worlds together for the remix.”

“I Can’t Be Your Superman” music video

January 6, 2016 12:09 pm

Nylon premieres the music video for Skylar Spence’s “I Can’t Be Your Superman” from their debut, Prom King, released earlier this year. The video was directed by Maegan Houang.

“Four singles into Prom King, I started to feel we’d explored the ‘budding romance’ trope to its fullest extent in our music videos,” said Ryan DeRobertis, aka Skylar Spence. “So when it came time to discuss ideas for ‘I Can’t Be Your Superman,’ the last video accompanying the LP, I was ready to try something new for a change. Originally we’d thought of an idea where my live band and I would participate in a mock episode of a cooking show (think Cutthroat Kitchen), but when that proved to be a logistical nightmare, we linked up with Maegan Houang who conceptualized something REALLY rad! It’s part nail salon nightmare, part Daft Punk homage, and those who are uncomfortable with unhappy endings should steer clear!”

Skylar Spence Beatport Remix Contest

January 5, 2016 12:28 pm

Big news! After picking up steam with their debut album Prom King, Skylar Spence has teamed up with Beatport to start the year off with a remix contest.

Here’s how it works:
“DeRobertis has fine-tuned his sound and style through hard work and perseverance in the studio. And now you can do the same by taking part in the latest Play remix contest by grabbing Skylar Spence’s ultra-riffy, bass-driven track, “I Can’t Be Your Superman” and turning it into an attention-getting remix. You could win your own release on Carpark Records, a pair of Sennheiser HD6 headphones, iZoptope Ozone 7, and more. The deadline for entry ends on February 1st, so take it and remake it while you can.”

Submissions can be made here. Happy remixing!
