Last week we were invited to check out Greg Grease’s release party for his upcoming project “Born to Lurk, Forced to Work.” Tucked away in Minneapolis’ Longfellow neighborhood, the release party was a great time with awesome artwork and even hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Just Nine. Minneapolis’ music scene was in full effect with appearances from Metasota, Local Tourist, Sarah White, Manchita, Major G and many more; the event was definitely a success. Below we’ve posted Local Tourist’s & Paper Water’s remix of Fifi Rong’s “Cold in You.” Despite the song’s title, the remix of “Cold in You” is warm and vibrant, something to plug into your playlist for the upcoming Spring warm up. The fact that Local Tourist meshed Beijing born/London based Fifi Rong with Miami’s own Paperwater, says it all (3 continents, 1 song!). Check out the remix below and stay tuned for more.
