mlp_remixed2014

I’ve been working the last year on producing a fantastic project, that Lakeshore Records and Hasbro Studios finally announced to the world last week after SDCC 2014! Songs from the “My Little Pony” remixed into cool Electronic Dance Music of many exciting genres. Stay tuned!

I’ve hinted at the project at PreSonuSphere 2013, CES 2014 and GDC 2014, but nobody picked up on the clues, so I’m happy that Hasbro Studios finally announced it! I’ve been wearing DJ Pon3 shirts, beanies, patches, buttons, stickers, lanyards and stuff at different events throughout the year to represent my pride in producing this project. It’s been cool to keep it a secret until now. We’re all excited to show the world this cool stuff!

From the Press Release: Coming This Fall: Lakeshore Records & Hasbro To Release First Official My Little Pony Remix Album, DJ PON3: MLP Remixed

Lakeshore Records, in collaboration with Hasbro, Inc., is pleased to announce the forthcoming DJ PON3: MLP Remixed soundtrack album.  With music produced, remixed and arranged by Album Producer Justin Lassen (I, Frankenstein, Underworld: Awakening), this is the first official Hasbro Studios album of EDM remixes, inspired by the wildly popular DJ PON3 (a.k.a. “Vinyl Scratch”) character from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series (watch it on The Hub).

“DJ PON3 started out as a background character who never actually speaks on the show.  As an electronic music DJ, she lets the music she spins speak for her,” says Matthew Proulx, director, brand marketing & business development of Hasbro Studios.  The album will feature original remixes by various artists from a selection of the series’ own music, originally written by Composer Daniel Ingram.  Stay tuned for the full roster of album artists and track listingDJ PON3: MLP Remixed is expected to release this fall.

Justin Lassen Presents Somniferious featuring John Angelo Cramer!

blog-image

After months of work, from November 2013 to July 2014, I am very proud to present to you the first part of maestro/violinist John Angelo Cramer’s musical journey. Pronounced “Som-ni-fare-e-us” (Somniferious).

"Somniferious is that “in between” state of consciousness where one is not fully awake or fully asleep. It’s the borderland of sleep, a place where solutions and answers meet the questions that fill our own lives. A state of mind where we meet our fears and our fantasies, where physical reality intersects with the expansiveness of eternity."

It is ambient, orchestral, epic, meditative music with emotive solo violin based on ancient chants from the 12th century. A passageway to another reality. Part I is a brave introduction to this world we’re creating, and it includes a re-interpretive cinematic remix as well.

I met John Angelo Cramer at PreSonuSphere 2013 in Baton Rouge, LA last year. He contacted me and wanted me to produce him and work with him in a colalborative way, and we’re both extremely happy with the outcome. There are physical print CD’s that you can exclusively order through Nimbit’s store, for only $5.99 from www.somniferious.com and you can check out John’s blog at www.johnangelocramer.com. :)
