Cameron S. - Sequencing / Samples / Synth / Effects

Your Pretend Boyfriend is a one man audio / video wrecking machine who makes glitchgaze / post-punk music by combiningdistorted beats and twisted samples on tracks like the eerie and infectious "Trapped Under Frozen Lakes" and the no-nonsense stomp of "Schizophrenia" juxtaposed to the electronic shoegaze experimentalism of "Anti-Matter" and spine-tingling darkness of “When I Close My Eyes, I Picture Myself Dying”. YPB will be releasing their quirky and intriguing 5-song debut EP "Swallow Darkness" this summer.

Your Pretend Boyfriend’s genesis was in early 2006 when Cameron remixed the debut single for British “NYLON” indie rockers LECAIN (now named Black Poets). LECAIN subsequently released the "Suffocate Me EP" featuring the Your Pretend Boyfriend Deconstructed Mix of the title track through Rough Trade Records and iTunes.

Following the successful release of the LECAIN remix, Cameron was asked to write two original soundtracks for British / Swedish fashion designers Pudel for their Stockholm, Copenhagen, Los Angeles, and New York runway shows. In his Toronto, Canada-based home studio, Cameron started recording demo tracks and created an online presence for Your Pretend Boyfriend. By mid 2006, he completed the project’s debut instrumental "Let Me Go" and it received an overwhelmingly positive response in electronic music circles. To broaden the depth of the YPB sound, Cameron entered the studio during 2009 to record an arsenal of tracks including Hammer Drill Poison, Schizophrenia, and Trapped Under Frozen Lakes.

They have also completed remixes for Caribou's track 'Sun' from their album 'Swim', Peter Gabriel's 'Games Without Frontiers' , and Rodeo Massacre's 'Zombies of Life'.
