You may have heard the name Cameron Kush before or rather his alter ego, Mischief. From his routine spinning at Webster Hall or maybe his infamous "Cat Face" party he throws w/Tanner Caldwell in Philly and NYC, too his numerous other parties he throws. Kush has been spinning in NYC ever since he moved down from California for College at NYU. None the less, this Cali native recently graduated from NYU Tisch for Music production and business, and is ready to throw down and show what his musical talent is made of and focus on touring and production more. Today, Mischief shared with me his spin of Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks. I've not heard a good remix of this song yet or even a remix for the matter, but this one is a doozy. Here is an exclusive look at his remix featured below.

You can't help yourself but want to dance to this. Am I right or am I right? Anyways, after getting back from a trip back home in Cali, Kush told me: "This song is on KROQ like every five minutes, and its just such a happy fun song, and it seems like something people would dance to" Kush told me. "Its a real feel good tune which is something different for me, and I NEVER do happy!" as Kush laughed. Speaking to Mischief about the type of music he usually produces. "Well, my genres go in this order, Trap, Electro, Dubstep, and Moombahton. For this one, I mixed house and trap. I produced a house structure, form, and tempo with some trap sounds – like the snare and he woodblock,” Mischief told me. I really like the dancing feel to this song. Mischief pulled a 360 on it with the EDM feel by giving it that added oomph, yet and left what makes the original so great. This is a song that you may see get remixed a lot more in the future after seeing Mischief do his thing.

As we talked about he originally got into music, he humored me: "Dawg, I've been in the music game since before I could speak. As a baby I used to pretend I was Raffi, and made my family watch me gurgle into a plasic mic!" Knowing from a young age music was his calling must have been pretty cool. Mischief wasn't always into EDM though, he first began in a band. "As I grew up and I got into singing. and I began to write a pop/rock EP under the name Cameron Kush; I called it - "The Thorns Inside EP"

He produced the album himself in his bedroom, but eventually got sick of it as he felt it wasn't worth it anymore. Then he found EDM. "Then about 3 years ago I got into EDM, and I went to the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU Tisch for music production and business, and I just graduated in December!" Kush told me. As I have one more semester my self, I congratulated him, but told him how jealous I was that he was finished. Mischief can be seen all around NYC and Philly, can be seen spinning at his "Cat Face" party this saturday in Brooklyn found HERE.

The weekend is almost here, party people! I hope you enjoyed this remix by Mr. Kush, and make sure to check out the rest of his music and add him on Facebook and Twitter.
