Robert Smith asked me to remix the Cure's new song "Freakshow" for an EP of remixes called Hypnagogic States. It comes out Oct. 13th and all the proceeds go to the International Red Cross.
Needless to say, I was honored to do this remix, not only because it's one of my favorite bands of all time, but because it's for a worthy cause.
And that cause is dancing. Oh yeah, and charity too.

It fits. It's always amazing when several blessings come in a single event. Congrats mr puget :)

endlesslyshesaid said...

Yes! The Cure put out a bulletin on MySpace two days ago or so letting their fans know about the new remixes. I was so excited to see that you did FreakShow! The song is so much fun and I CAN"T WAIT to see what you did with it! Robert Smith has mentioned several times in interviews how much he loves you guys (A.F.I.) and the direction you move with your music. Congrats Jade. October can not come soon enough. NEW CURE, NEW CURE now let's hope for NEW AFI soon too!

Karlye said...

So this was the remix that you were talking about a while ago. And it's for some great causes too. I can't wait to hear it Jade

xx_emogirl33_xx said...

Oh my god, really! I've been introduced to The Cure just a little while ago, but I already love them. Wow, it must be cool having the lead guy call you up and ask you if you would remix HIS SONG for him. If I were you, I would be totally honored. As a growing musician/ guitarist myself, I would try not to scream with joy... too loud. =] AWESOME IM SOO EXCITED TO HEAR IT!

jonnyboy said...

nice one

*ring ring*

oi jade its some bloke called trent on the blower wants you to do something with his song.

XBittersweetX said...

That whole charity bit is an epic win;
I never got into the Cure, sadly. I'll give yours a shot though.


AFI news soon?
How's Finn? I hope he's coming together well.

Hevv. said...

*looks at poll*


It's a close one. x]

Crop Tub for the fucking win. That song should replace Miss Murder. God, I would prefer Crop Tub instead Love Like Winter AND Miss Murder.

Bring back GOOD 'ol AFI!

NightmareGanon said...

Congratulations, man. Not only is it a great hoor to be contected by Robert Smith himself, but this proves that famous people know something I've known for months (or a year and months, I'm not quite sure): You are not only a great at playign the guitar in a plethora of ways, but you also rock at using a synthesizer. plus, you are doing it for three good causes: dancing, chrity and making every fan of yours happy.

I hope you come to Honduras someday.

any_mouse said...

Sounds exciting.

I was lurking on some Cure fan community blog thingy, and some of the fans were all like "Ewww...I don't want no remixes from a bunch of flash-in-the-pan emo bands." Fortunately, a few of the more enlightened souls pointed out that 1) 17 years, 7 years, 7 years, and 11 years were definitely not anything to scoff at, longevity-wise, 2) these were remixes, not covers, and 3) they hadn't even heard the remixes yet so why were they already bitching?

On the plus side, those who came to the defense cited your work for Blaqk Audio and picked yours as the remix they were most interested in hearing.

In conclusion: yay for fandom wankery!

Magdaline(HAVOKLover4life) said...

Congratulations!!!And we dances!!!

Stix said...

I heard about the new Cure.

It's quite an honour.

But FOB and MCR doing one too?
I never knew they could remix. I'm sceptical.

It is so awesome that you know Robert Smith, I always thought him to be in "the bubble".

Ashleigh said...

Yay for you!

Dancing is always a worthy cause, charity or no. Both great fun and great exercise!

Panduh Loves Music said...

wow
your amazing remixing abilities + a Cure song = too much aweomeness!
i think my heads gonna explode if i listen it too many times...

afireinside said...

Awesome as Jade, I look forward to hearing it. I can't even imagine how it'd feel to be asked such a thing by Mr Smith :) And yes, dancing is definately a worthy cause. With that I will return to the bootyshaking that is VnV Nation haha

Kayleigh Puget said...

Jade I think you're slowly but surely using your mind. I'm glad you've been asked by Robert Smith (legend) to remix 'Freakshow', but (from your previous entry) STABBY. KNIFE. TEETH. MAN!?

As much as I love you, you've lost your marbles sir. I'm going to go and make a blog about how much I laughed at that.

Much love. xxxx

a while ago..in my 7th grade year. there was this dude with loooongggg curlyyyy hair. like down to his elbows almost. and me and my friend were terrified of him. so one day i realized something, he look liked TARZAN! so we nicknamed him tarzan. eventually the whole junior high found out we called him tarzan. so they said it to his face.then he cut his hair. no more taran. later after that, we began to call all dudes with hair past their shoulders tarzans. the intention was not to ruin his greasy hair, it was mainly a tag to remeber his name.
I just felt like telling you that.
do you think that cruel? XD
anywayss
bye :] <33333

ThisSideUp said...

Is it sad that I don't have the faintest clue who Lily Allen is?

Congrats on the Cure remix! I would just be happy to know Robert Smith, but he asks you to mess around with his songs! Wow...

Mary-Jean said...

Oh, wow. That must be amazing to be able to remix a song for your favorite band. Congrats.

ElectroPrincess said...

Wellllllllll...I trust your remixes, but everybody else on the album is untested to my ear in remixing so it shall be downloaded first before I hike to T&S to cop this.

And for the record, I think dancing is way more of a worthy cause than the red cross, lol nah.

Christa said...

Maybe a dance related charity? The Red Cross probably needs it more though. :)

C-dot said...

Ahhh that's SO cool Jade! Definitely something to be proud of!
I'm not going to sleep until it comes out.

Kayleigh Puget said...

Jade, I know this has nothing to do with anything, but I´m feeling so shit right now. I was standing on the edge of the cliffs for a full ten minutes, just weighing up whether I should jump to my death or not. I´m really really finding it hard to cope at the moment, and there´s no one I can really talk to.. I was just wondering how I could make myself feel a bit happier. For the record, I'm an English girl in a Spanish-speaking country on a so-called holiday and I´m so down..

Sorry for going on like this.
Hope you're ok :(
