The Northeast United States was recently hit with another snowstorm. Coincidentally another melodic dubstep remix hit, sweeping the streets like the white powder falling from the skies, crisp and clean like the coat it leaves on our streets and doorsteps. I am into emotional rock music made into emotional electronic music, and so I have been into every track that this kid Kasum has put out. His first release of 2014 is a remix of Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue,” and it is available for free download. What I love so much about these remixes is the way in which they are tailored to Kasum himself, making each one individually introspective and personal. As if he is inviting us to get to know him for the few minutes of his music.
Kasum: from all of us in winter wonderland, those under palm trees or high on mountain tops, on behalf of listeners of the world, I’d like to graciously accept your invitation. Thanks for letting us get to know you.
