A good musical rule of thumb: never forget a Brownswood Bubbler. We were introduced to Jamie Woon on his track "Wayfaring Stranger," a single off Vol 2 of the Brownswood Bubbler series (2007). Since then, he's seen working on his debut full-length album to be released April 11th, mirrorwriting. Check out this video for the single "Lady Luck" above, "Night Air" and a sweet "Lady Luck" remix by Hudson Mohawk.

When the TRON: Legacy movie came out last year, we were beyond excited to be along for the ride, helping to launch the official soundtrack, created by the legendary, pioneering, larger-than-life electro duo Daft Punk. The soundtrack showed a new side of Daft Punk's music: they gave us a powerful, all-encompassing film score, which was a big leap from their usual dancefloor-shaking tunes.
And now the news we all have been waiting for: the hotly anticipated remix album, TRON: LEGACY R3C0NF1GUR3D will be released by Walt Disney Records on April 5th, including interpretations of the Daft Punk score by artists including Glitch Mob, The Crystal Method, Paul Oakenfold, Moby, Boys Noize, Kaskade, Photek, Pretty Lights and more.
