2016 was a great year for MEMORYY, aka electro-pop producer Shaun Hettinger. Aside from writing the new Netflix Chelsea Handler theme song, he earned his cred as “Remix King” - his official turns for Body Language, Bridgit Mendler, King Deco, and Paperwhite, as well as 2 original tracks all contributed to his 12 hits on HypeMachine in 2016. Press in The Huffington Post, NYLON & Indie Shuffle didn't hurt either.
Behind the scenes, 2016 was also the year Hettinger packed his bags & moved from Brooklyn to Albuquerque, New Mexico and made music his full-time job, forming his music production company Keytarred and Feathered. Only the 3rd time he’s ever moved, Shaun came across a lot of old, forgotten things when packing - including many demos of songs that make up his brand new album SKELETONS.
Having just dropped this April, SKELETONS is the 3rd Memoryy album & the first full length. It is a genre-spanning pop accomplishment that features collaborations with talented indie artists & producers - including (his old band) The Golden Pony, Brothertiger, Brain Tan, Frances Cone, Yeasayer producer Abe Seiferth, Saint Motel producer Joe Napolitano, & Grammy-nominated Katy Perry mixer Luke Tozour.
The early single I THOUGHT YOU NEEDED MY LOVE (Featuring ODD YEAR) was the first to break into the Top 10 on The Hype Machine. Hot on its heels is the stand-out single NOT OVER YOU, which is already creating a buzz with it's universal & emotive chorus "I'm not over not getting over you." Flourished with violins, breathy choirs, glitching vocals & pulsing synths, NOT OVER YOU is a knock-out from start to finish & showcases Memoryy's ability at crafting emotionally-driven Electronic Pop is right up there with the best of them.
PRAISE FOR MEMORYY:
"Memoryy makes metallic future-pop for lovers."
"Over the past five years Memoryy has developed quite the impressive synth pop portfolio."
"The sound is bright, the chorus is syrupy sweet and the groove begs you to dance."
"Memoryy continues to impress with his musical prowess and Out Of The Dark is no exception. He just wrote the new theme song for Chelsea Handler's show, so if she is on the Memoryy tip, maybe you should be too."
"We all need a little sparkly synth pop in our lives at some point, and Memoryy is dishing it out in spades."
-The Music Ninja
"When Memoryy works his magic, it seems the trajectory of the vibe shifts from soaring in the sky to straight to the moon."
"Proof that the balance of pop and dance can be creative, interesting, and still worth radio airplay."
"It's unabashedly pop and I can totally imagine Napoleon Dynamite throwing some sweet, sweet moves to this little number, which is a very good thing."
"Memoryy is one of my favorite producers that I came across so far in 2016. Mastering both the art of the remix, as well as producing stellar original synth pop tracks, the artist has been creating quite the name for himself."
"Memoryy have been on our list of remix kings for quite some time with his ability to warp a song to new heights every time.."
"There is no stopping Memoryy. The man just keeps dropping remix after remix and they are all on point."
