HOW SOON IS NOW

St. Pepsi

We were part of the crowd that became shamelessly addicted to Saint Pepsi's edit of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" when it dropped earlier this year. But don't judge us until you've given it a chance. In a far cry from the original's bubblegum sound, Saint Pepsi takes a screwed, slowed approach that renders the song melancholic, almost poignant. Long Island native Ryan DeRobertis' music is filed under genres like lo-fi, trillwave, chillwave, vaporwave — anything ending with "-wave." But it's no surprise once you understand his inspirations; his love of 80s New Wave can be heard within his resounding synthwork, reverbs, and delays, and in the polished nature of his production. Now based out of Boston, Saint Pepsi has steadily been releasing music both independently and under labels like KEATS//COLLECTIVE and S.O.U.L. Records since last year. His latest effort, "Burn," an R&B number featuring samples from Ray J, premiered on Stereogum in October.

Saint Pepsi's "Call Me Maybe" edit appears in his mix, alongside tracks from Lil Sad, Metome, Wet, and Shy Girls.

CFCF

Montreal producer and DJ, CFCF offers a synth-heavy blend of acoustic instrumental samples and down-tempo progressions, combining tribal percussions with his signature ethereal sound. The emotive mix features subtle, classic hip-hop instrumentals from American producer, DJ Shadow, as well as exclusive edits made from unlikely pairings of Yoko Ono with Tangerine Dream and Nicolas Makelberge with Deep Forest.

Montreal-native Michael Silver's unofficial remixes set his careen in motion, with his first commercial production, You Hear Colours released in 2008 under Acéphale Records, the acclaimed label home to electronic acts How to Dress Well, Elite Gymnastics and Korallreven. CFCF's first full length album, Continent, was released in 2009 with Toronto-based independent label, Paper Bag Records, solidifying his atmospheric sound and unique, eclectic infusion of subtle piano riffs. His latest EP, Exercises, is a quiet, minimalist interpretation of beatless electronica.
