The Colourist recently released a new remix of "Fix This" by The Chainsmokers. The Chainsmokers are a production group (mostly Alex and Drew?), from New York. Chainsmokers described the remix process: "in the production it was great to create a composition for this track that ping pong'd between their vocals and our production as we add and subtract instruments to increase the energy and emotion into a joyous wave of synths for the drop that keeps that has our signature style."

Of the eleven bands we saw, we made sure to check out Secret Colours:
Pretty Lights: A Color Map of the Sun
Pretty Lights' A Color Map of the Sun was nominated for the Grammy's "Best Dance/Electronica Album of 2013". The album is available as a free download on his website, where you can grab all of his previous albums for free. Instead, Pretty Lights makes money off his live shows.
A Color Map of the Sun is also available as a remixed collection, which Derek Smith wrote is more like a "re-imagination of A Color Map of the Sun."
