The much awaited and anticipated full-length electro/pop album (including a Sonaris dubstep remix of “Miss You Miss You” [One of my favorite remix projects!]) from Canadian duo SAM (James Sadoway and Jerome Mandrake) is out on iTunes and Amazon!
The album features Jerome Mandrake’s lyrical writing and vocal performances along with James Sadoway’s musical compositions and lyrical co-writing. Mandrake who has opened for Deborah Cox and released his own album “Affirmation” previously, teamed up with Sadoway who has remixed Sarah McLaughlin’s song “First Noel”, and had written and produced a song featured on Bravo! a Canadian cable channel with its own music video.
Together they present 7 personal songs showcasing Sadoway’s incredible versatile music styles and Mandrake’s stunning voice. SAM has already done 4 shows for the Vancouver Olympics and other shows for large city events. Along with a couple guest vocalists and 5 remixes, SAM is an unspoiled electronic pop group.

Finally put the finishing touches on my brand new remix of one of my favorite Deadmau5 tracks, “Brazil.”
At first I didn’t even want to touch the original, because I like it just fine as is, but then I noticed that there weren’t very many remixes of this track out there (maybe for the aforementioned reason) and so I figured I’d do it and let people hear a different side of this track. The idea was to take part of the melody, and more or less write a new track around it, but keep the chill vibe and atmosphere of the original. Before you ask, there are no samples from the original, in this remix, that’s how I roll.
As with the Daft Punk remix I did, I am a bit apprehensive – albeit curious – to post this, since I know Deadmau5 fans are pretty hardcore. But, chances must be taken, and without much further explanation, see the links below the image to listen and download:
