about

Last November while watching all the amazing artists perform at Echosynthetic Fest, the idea for this remix album was born, and by the end of the weekend Skeleton Beach and Ethereal Delusions had agreed to be a part of this project. As the months went by and we reached out to other artists we admired, the album began to take shape. Each artist chose the song that they remixed with the goal of having a remix of as many songs as possible from the original album “Misadventures of a Misguided Monkey”. The results have been breathtaking and glorious and so much fun to listen to every time a new mix was sent in. As special bonus tracks, we also included a remix of “Insignificant Other” off “Crave” and a brand-new song “Night Flight”, a collaboration with Ethereal Delusions. We present our remix album “Misadventures of a Mixed-up Monkey” featuring remixes by some of our favorite artists and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Track Name: The Origin of Sadness (The DiPettius Suite)
The letting go is the hardest part
Especially when your heart is so stubborn
It keeps believing things will change
While the brain says impossible

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Though I try to reconcile my heart and mind
Therein lies the origin of sadness

So what do I do with all this love for you?
That you can’t seem to accept
Do I keep it safe and locked inside?
With the hope that one day you’ll come to your senses

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Though I try to reconcile my heart and mind
Therein lies the origin of sadness

They say time will make everything better
But they are fools who really don’t know any better

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Though I try to reconcile my heart and mind
Therein lies the origin of sadness
Track Name: Other Possibilities (Ethereal Delusions Remix) [feat. Mike Shaw]
When I first saw you
I didn't have a clue
That one day we'd be where we are
I was too wrapped up in the past
Had to let it go, let it be
Now I’m finally free

I'm open to other possibilities
Open to the idea of you and me
Open to whatever we could be
I'm ready for other possibilities
Ready to let my imagination run free
Ready for you and me

Now I see you
Right in front of me
There's no place I'd rather be
Shed my skin in the echoes of the past
Let it go, let it be
Now it's time for me

I'm open to other possibilities
Open to the idea of you and me
Open to whatever we could be
I'm ready for other possibilities
Ready to let my imagination run free
Ready for you and me

Are you ready? (Yes I am)
Cause I’m ready
Are you ready? (I’m so ready)
Cause I’m ready
So ready

I'm open to other possibilities
Open to the idea of you and me
Open to whatever we could be
I'm ready for other possibilities
Ready to let my imagination run free
Ready for you and me
For you and me

I’m ready
Willing
Open
To you and me
You and me
I’m ready
Ready so ready
For you and me
Track Name: Now! (Watch Out For Snakes Remix)
Circling each other
On the dance floor
Moving closer together
Let our hands explore

Want me
Take me
Use me
Now!

Feeling the heat
Of your skin
My heart skips a beat
As I let you in

Want me
Take me
Use me
Now!

Hearts pounding
Bodies touching
Sweat dripping
Lips brushing

Want me
Take me
Use me
Now!
Track Name: Crystal Blue (Electric Runner Remix)
Sitting on my couch
Listening to you play guitar
Makes me crave your touch
Want you to make me part of your repertoire

Crystal blue eyes
Captivate and mesmerize
Like fuel to a fire
Igniting flames of desire

It’s more than physical
This spark between us
It’s cerebral it’s emotional
Lust entangled with trust

Crystal blue eyes
Captivate and mesmerize
Like fuel to a fire
Igniting flames of desire

Funny how easy it is to go
From a look to a touch to a kiss to...

Crystal blue eyes
Captivate and mesmerize
Like fuel to a fire
Igniting flames of desire
Track Name: You Kiss Me (The Identity Matrix Remix)
It’s magic, magic, magic
It’s magic, magic, magic

You came along when I didn’t expect it
You came along and changed my world
You looked at me and drew me in
You held me close…within

You kiss me with those lips of yours
You kiss me
You leave me wanting so much more
You kiss me

It’s magic, magic, magic
It’s magic, magic, magic

You touch me and make me shiver
Every nerve is alive you make me quiver
You looked at me and now I’m drowning
You held me deep inside and now I’m living

You kiss me with those lips of yours
You kiss me
You leave me wanting so much more
You kiss me
Track Name: Run Away With Me (DiPettius Remix)
Did the stars align
when we met
This moment in time
Could it be kismet
Quiet conversation
as the world faded around us
Feelings of elation
As we start to build our trust

Run away with me for a while
I promise you
I’ll make you smile

Run away with me for all time
I’ll be yours
Will you be mine

Runaway with me
And I’ll show you love

Looks exchanged
Hearts become entangled
Priorities rearranged
Kissing you is more than I can handle
I feel so secure
In your embrace
I’ve never been more sure
I’ve found my place


Run away with me for a while
I promise you
I’ll make you smile

Run away with me for all time
I’ll be yours
Will you be mine

Runaway with me
And I’ll show you love

A vision in leather and lace
Our fingers entwine
Feel our hearts race
Someone like you is rare to find

Run away with me for a while
I promise you
I’ll make you smile

Run away with me for all time
I’ll be yours
Please be mine

Runaway with me
And I’ll show you love
Track Name: Nonchalant (Skeleton Beach Remix)
This is the part I hate
It's all very hurry up and wait
Everything is so unsure
All I want is to be assured

Can we skip ahead to where we know
That this is what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant
There's no need to take it slow
Isn't this what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant

They say this is the best part
I don't think they're all that smart
I want to get to where we're sure
Where I can feel secure

Can we skip ahead to where we know
That this is what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant
There's no need to take it slow
Isn't this what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant

Give me the surety of a sunrise
Versus all these butterflies

Can we skip ahead to where we know
That this is what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant
There's no need to take it slow
Isn't this what we want
Do we have to act so nonchalant

Let’s skip ahead to where we know
This is what we want
Let's not take it slow
No need to act so nonchalant
Track Name: Running Out of Time (BETTOGH Remix) [feat. Hanna Wilde]
First you pull me in
Then you push me away
Am I just your friend?
What should I say?
I’m so confused
By the way you act
What is this to you?
Fiction or fact

What should I do?
It’s all up to you
You’ve got me spinning round
Barely touching ground
Make up your mind
You’re wasting time
My love is on the line
We’re running out of time

What is your intent?
I’m not quite sure
Should I try to circumvent?
Just leave you wanting more
Could this be a game?
And who will win
It’s like a runaway train
Come on, let me in

What should I do?
It’s all up to you
You’ve got me spinning round
Now I’m losing ground
Make up your mind
You’re just wasting time
My love is on the line
We’re running out of time
We’re running out of time
What should I do?
Track Name: I Can’t Recall (Seersha Remix)
Did we fail on a colossal scale
Or did we win while losing everything

Would you come running if I call
Would you finally be the one to fall
Isn't it funny I can't recall
Who loved whom after all

Would you come running if I call
Would you finally be the one to fall
Isn't it funny I can't recall
Who loved whom after all

Did we fail on a colossal scale
Or did we win while losing everything

Would you come running if I call
Would you finally be the one to fall
Isn't it funny I can't recall
Who loved whom after all
Track Name: The Origin of Sadness (Electronic Warbear Remix)
They say time will make everything better
the origin of sadness

The letting go is the hardest part
the origin of sadness

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Though I try to reconcile my heart and mind
Therein lies the origin of sadness

They say time will make everything better
the origin of sadness

The letting go is the hardest part
the origin of sadness

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Though I try to reconcile my heart and mind
Therein lies the origin of sadness

I can’t help but wonder who you’re with tonight
And what makes him so much better than me
Therein lies the origin of sadness
Of sadness
Of sadness
Of sadness
Track Name: The In-Between (Stereospread Remix) [feat. Mike Shaw]
We’re not quite friends and definitely not lovers
But I still can’t fathom being with another
The in-between is never what it seems
Want to escape this nightmare and trade it in for a dream

Here I am with my soul laid bare
Here I am with my soul laid bare

Not sure I can do this
Here I am with my soul laid bare
All dignity gone
Begging you to care

We’re not quite friends and definitely not lovers
But I still can’t fathom being with another

Not sure I can do this
But I’ll follow your lead
Not sure I’m strong enough
To be what you need

Not sure I can do this
But I’ll follow your lead
Want to escape this nightmare
Want to escape this nightmare and trade it in for a dream

Here I am with my soul laid bare for a dream
Here I am with my soul laid bare for a dream

Not sure I can do this
But I’ll follow your lead
Not sure I’m strong enough
To be what you need

And trade it in for a dream
Want to escape this nightmare and trade it in for a dream
Want to escape this nightmare
Want to escape this nightmare
Want to escape this nightmare and trade it in for a dream
Want to escape this nightmare
Want to escape this nightmare
Want to escape this nightmare and trade it in for a dream
And trade it in for a dream
Track Name: Insignificant Other (DiPettius Remix) [feat. Tricia Lee Kelshall]
I watch as you give your heart to another
I watch as you let down all your barriers
And I die a little more inside
And I add to this river of tears I’ve cried

Now I can do nothing
As you give everything to another
It’s quite clear to me
I was nothing more than your insignificant other

I listen as you talk about him
I listen knowing he captured your heart I couldn’t win
And I try to keep the hurt inside
And I struggle to make my feelings for you subside

Now I can do nothing
As you give everything to another
It’s quite clear to me
I was nothing more than your insignificant other

I wish I didn’t love you
I wish I didn’t care
I wish I was over you
I wish it wasn’t more than I could bear

Now I can do nothing
As you give everything to another
It’s quite clear to me
I was nothing more than your insignificant other
Track Name: Night Flight (with Ethereal Delusions)
It's been over a year since you were mine
Since we were together
Since we were fine
Still all I do is remember
Remember our time

And all these sleepless nights
That you're no longer by my side
Have drained me of my fight
And left me empty inside
Yeah all these sleepless nights
That you're no longer by my side
Did it matter who was right
Did it really matter who tried

It’s been over two weeks since we last spoke
This silent falling out
This feeling so remote

And all these sleepless nights
That you're no longer by my side
Have drained me of my fight
And left me empty inside
Yeah all these sleepless nights
That you're no longer by my side
Did it matter who was right
Did it really matter who tried

It’s finally time for me to let you go
Take back my sleepless nights
It’s finally time for me to say no more
Let my dreams of us take flight

And all these sleepless nights
That you're no longer by my side
Have drained me of my fight
And left me empty inside
Yeah all these sleepless nights
That you're no longer by my side
Solidifies what I know is right
Time to let go of the tears I’ve cried

All these sleepless
Did it matter who was right
Did it really matter who tried
Did it really matter
Did it really matter who tried

You left me shattered
Did I even matter
