I have been following Go Periscope for the better part of 5 years now and each release is as exciting as the next.

When I first discovered Joshua Frazier, Florin Donovan and Seth Bolin, I had stumbled upon one of their latest mixtapes. Imagine most of the your favourite songs, and then some, all in one compilation but with a twist. Think, Eminem, Drake, The Glitch Mob, Daft Punk and Kanye. Think Go Periscope‘s take on some of the songs, adjusted, tweaked, mashed up and wholly their own.

Years later, I still have their Mish Mash mixtape on hand for a night out as well as their latest takes on some of my favourites.

I stumbled upon their enchating take on Eastside’s cover of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Don’t’ and Chris Brown’s ‘Loyal’ and fell in love all over again.

Their latest spin is on Ember Island’s cover of ‘Where Are Ü Now’ by Jack Ü and it is tropical, dreamy, indie pop at its best.

I can’t wait for more from them!

I absolutely adore Go Periscope and have been an avid fan of their music, various mix tapes and mashups. It seems there is nothing the Seattle based duo can’t do.

Their ‘Mish Mash’ mix tape, while two years old, is no less fresh or interesting now, as when I first heard and I have it on rotation every few weeks. Think remixes and mashups of your favourite artists including: Star Slinger, Purity Ring, Kanye West, Benny Benassi and more.

Then, when I stumbled across their remix of the unknown Eastside, and their enchanting cover of ‘Don’t’ by Ed Sheeran and ‘Loyal’ by Chris Brown, I fell in love again. Their tropical remix gives the song a fresh and catchy feel. I have had it on repeat for weeks, since I found it.
