OUR REAL NAMES was founded by DJs Lance Wicks (Shawn Hynes) & Hot Biscuit (Amy Fisher), and the pair often DJ together under the remix86 name. Based in St. John’s, Newfoundland, remix86 has become known for its high energy performances and infecting feelgood vibes.

remix86 focuses on spreading the word about the music that makes them move through dance parties, pop-ups, weekly dance videos, and artist promotion. remix86 was also part of the original crew who founded Yung Dumb, a local events and promotions group that focuses on broadening the St. John’s music scene through alternative music and specialty artist curation.


Established in 2010, started when music blogs were the place to find new niche music through carefully sought out artists curation. remix86 became an internationally acclaimed electronic music blog featured on websites like Hype Machine, and thrived on promoting new producers and watching their rise in the industry. In 2013, the website was hacked, and the pair took a brief hiatus from blogging.

In 2019 remix86 relaunched its new website with a mission to revive blog culture by providing a dance music community that promotes discovery and expression through a premier curated experience. The site features three unique playlists to suit the audience’s mood, news articles featuring music, lifestyle, fashion, and travel, reviews, releases, and a collection of streetwear apparel.
