It's been a hectic couple of months for Scottsdale electro-hop duo Silver Medallion. Oren J has been flying back-and-forth to his home state of Hawaii for special DJ sessions at the Loft Lounge in Honolulu and their latest album will be hitting the streets sometime next month.
They've also been collaborating with local DJ/producer J. Paul of HavocNDeed on a new 30-minute mixtape entitled Paris is Burning. It blends bass-heavy dubstep with Silver Medallion's funky electro aesthetic, along with some stellar remix work by J. Paul.
