As an artist, he’s hard to pin down as he paints entire landscapes of electronic color and abstract thoughts.

Remix Fix: Rogue Wave/Dan Deacon

Remix Fix: Rogue Wave/Dan Deacon

In theory I like the idea of the remix: taking someone else’s song and tweaking it the way you want it done. It’s a great means for completely redoing something, and for reinterpretation. Sometimes remixes go awry, and sometimes they’re better than the original. Remix Fix is all about the happy medium when a remix totally nails it and makes a song that much better.

Dan Deacon remixed Rogue Wave’s “What is Left to Solve?” (listen)

Source: Brooklyn Vegan

“Dan seemed like just the person to reimagine the song, since his creativity seems to know no bounds. At first, the mix sounds like he threw it into a washing machine on spin cycle. Total chaos. And then the song shifts into this new song that is just tonally really different. It’s like this beautiful exploding flower. – Zach Rogue

Dan Deacon shares new song/video “Change Your Life,” touring

Source: Brooklyn Vegan

“I was going through some pretty heavy shit at the time and was very depressed, confused and alone. The theme helped me realize I was in a transitional phase of my life and to try to pull myself together and remove the aspects of life that I was in conflict with. Writing the song became an opportunity to motivate myself to change myself.” – Dan Deacon

The Decemberists by Autumn de WildeApril 7 – The Decemberists @ Academy of Music – Tickets
The Academy of Music has an incredible run of shows coming up next week, starting with The Decemberists on April 7. Supporting their seventh album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World, you can expect the show to focus on the new material while still offering plenty of old favorites.
