Polyphia’s new album New Levels New Devils sure is something, right? “This shit bumps,” said MS scribe Dick Gozinya in his official review, while also adding “you’ll probably go apeshit” and advising you “resist the urge to pass.” All wise words. I’m not sure I’d describe this piano and string medley of Polyphia songs as “bumpin’” like...

The original accompaniment is extremely dynamic. When I was originally recording it, I thought about doing it super bare bones. Then I kept hearing different accompaniment in the vocals. We met the composer Summer Swee-Singh when Circa Survive was touring in Los Angeles who had done a map up on YouTube of a couple of...

A classically trained pianist posts a cover of a rock band’s track--and winds up on stage with them. A piano instructor draws on favorite game tunes on Instagram mini-etudes for students--and ends up working together with a popular composer on an album of arrangements, complete with sheet music. It’s all thanks to covers and social media, and it’s changing the way music gets made in some of the most productive, lucrative niches of the music industry...

You might not (yet!) be familiar with the name Summer Swee-Singh, but I don’t think that will be true for very long. Summer sent me her debut album, Summer Swee-Singh and the Crazy 88, in January of this year. I wasn’t familiar with her name, but the album cover was intriguing! Fast forward a couple of...

The 2012 Grammys confirmed that EDM had entered the mainstream, but Dave Grohl didn’t really seem to be on board. A debate ensued. But if you ask Summer Shee-SinghSwee-Singh — who’s been playing the piano since she was 8 — EDM is quite worthy. She’s been putting together classical arrangements of genre stars like Skrillex and Daft...

Skrillex loves it when folks cover his songs, which is good because there are a billion of them. When we met with the twenty-three-year-old producer in San Diego recently to interview him for this week’s cover story — out today — he noted that he was particularly impressed with fan-made YouTube versions of his hit “Scary Monsters and Nice...

She’s currently studying at UC Berkeley and happens to be an amazing musician with perfect pitch. For the past few years she has been periodically releasing beautiful piano covers of huge EDM and pop tracks on...

“As EDM makes its way into mainstream via consumers there are still many traditionalists that think otherwise.  Well a young lady who has been playing piano since she was 8 is out to prove that artists like Skrillex and Daft Punk are composing actual music.  Her name is Summer Swee-Singh, half Chinese and half Indian. A humorous...

“Skrillex just threw this one up on his facebook feed today and I must say it’s pretty incredible. Watch as these girls successfully perform this incredible arrangement of ‘Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites’, ‘My Name Is Skrillex’, and ‘Slats’ in a medley format.
