Here at FreshNewTracks, we love chasing down a good story. Red Vision Records in El Paso, Texas is one of the stories you can’t help but share. Earlier today, I was cruising the interwebs and I came across a story from our friends at Your EDM. The title of the sort was “Serial Song Thief ‘Havirest’ Angers KOAN sound, Asa, SKisM, and EDM Community” The article was fascinating, so I decided to do a little digging. Well, a lot of digging. This is where it gets fun.

In addition to ASA, Koan Sound, and SKisM, our friend Collin McLoughlin was targeted too. Particularly, his “Chasing Ghosts” single from his extremely popular “Tears Of Tempo” EP. Collin tweeted about the trickery moments ago. I say he should be flattered, but it’s pretty shitty behavior to say the least. I decided to track down these ole’ chaps at Red Vision Records in El Paso, Texas. Here’s what I found…

Fernando Reyes and Mark Tenepin are responsible for the tracks being sold without the artists permission. The website is registered under Fernando Reyes’s name, and the address listed on Go Daddy and the website matches up. In addition to stealing tracks and posting EP’s as his own, Fernando Reyes runs a photography company. No, I’m actually serious. I don’t have much information Mark, but I can assure you I’m doing my due diligence. You’d think these bro’s would be smarter.

This level of nonsense burns me up because artists in the EDM space work extremely hard on their music. They put hours into their production, only for some young punk to come along and steal their hard work. Artists like Asa, Collin McLoughlin, and SKisM deserve better than this. Don’t get me started on how Beatport let this slip by. I guess they don’t listen to what you send them anymore. The incompetence is amazing. I hope Fernando Reyes and Mark Tenepin in El Paso, Tx. learns their lesson once and for all. Stealing someone else’s intellectual property isn’t a crime, it’s morally wrong as well.
