  Chrysalis   In 2011 I was asked to remix the song “Sunday Night Dream” by  Pacific UV  for the release of their EP   Chrysalis  . Vacationing in Hawaii at the time, I utilized previously recorded samples from lap steel guitar and electronics on my laptop to put together the remix in a single day from a cliffside veranda on Kauai overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Not a bad way to do it! The release is an accomplished offering by Pacific UV, which you can hear by clicking the cover above.  Pacific UV remain dear friends as they continue to release one incredible album after another. Check out their newest works at  www.pacificuv.com .
