Toronto Punk artist Fluffio has released a cover of Rocky Horror Picture Show’s seminal classic “Time Warp”, just in time for Halloween! Fluffio has teamed up with female powerhouse Vilivant for a punked-up spin on the iconic dance number, which features all of the iconic sing-along-worthy melodicism from the original while adding an all new hard hitting, more explosive take on the track.
The original song was used as a reference throughout the creation process to ensure justice was done, but there were no limits to creativity when creating the new track. Fluffio & Vilivant’s “Time Warp” is largely dynamic with ska-esc sections culminating to a sonic explosion that feels more like a metal track. Production was done 100% DIY from start to finish in Fluffio’s recording studio recruiting talented musician friends from the Toronto Music Scene to play each instrument and sing backup vocals. The song features guests Tyler Twigger on Drums and Jesse Grant (of In a Bag) on Bass. With additional harmonies from Elena Levy and Nick Mokrezewski (of Whisper Gang).
“Time Warp” is a fantastic alternative pop-punk take on a true classic, perfect for fans of Green Day, Blink-182, Yungblud, Dirty Nil and MGK. It is currently playing across all digital streaming platforms. Listen to the track on Spotify now, or on YouTube below:
About the artists:
Hailing from Toronto, Fluffio has managed to develop a platform for himself just as diverse as the city he’s come from. Forging his own form of punk; loud guitars, catchy melodies, upbeat rhythms, and thought-provoking poetic lyricism all combine to deliver a mature sound with a juvenile undertone- perhaps only to be described as nursery rhymes on drugs.
Fluffio’s music unites perfectly with his never-ending energy and bold fashion to constantly plant lasting experiences in every audience member’s mind.
VILIVANT (Julia Gentile) is a Canadian hard rocker that quickly made it in the music scene at a very young age. Drawing heavily from influences such as Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, and Three Days Grace, she created her first self-titled EP.
With continuous success on radio, her two singles reached #89 and #98 on the top 100 Canadian rock radio charts; thus garnering a fanbase across the country and internationally. Though LIVE shows were at a standstill during the pandemic, she continued to play at virtual festivals. During this time she was selected as a Top 5 Regional Finalist for Jim Beam’s National Talent Search and won the Toronto Region with her LIVE off-the-floor performance video of her song ‘Stabilized.’ VILIVANT was also given the opportunity to open for Canadian award-winning rocker Lee Aaron at the sold-out El Mocambo.
