Another New Dance Track!!

Another New Dance Track!!

Here’s yet another dance track….I’ve been mixing like crazy! Dance is what I’ve been experimenting with lately. There’s always a need for dance music. And it’s fun! But I’ve also realized there’s room for experimentation within the genre. It’s not just club music. To fuse other genres in it, to try a mix of electronic and acoustic instrumentation, to expand lyrical […]

Dance/EDM track

Dance/EDM track

Another new dance track here! “October” has peaks and valleys, and a different lyrical theme than my last dance track. The last one was just get out on the floor and dance! This one starts slower, with a gradual build, and it has peaks and valleys. Oh- and it’s about love. How about that? As always, […]

Another Loss

Another Loss

Well, music has lost another icon, Prince. Not that I’ve ever been a fan, but still, he greatly influenced modern music. His trademark high guitar licks over pop music are still a popular style even today. I greatly admired his work style though. I read an article once about how he worked on his tracks. […]

Creativity From Habits

Creativity From Habits

This weekend I was perusing a few sample books on music production. One of the commonalities was the value of habits and creativity. It seems almost counterintuitive, like creativity should just be spontaneous. But I’ve learned from personal experience that is not the case. Somehow knowing that you’re going to sit down at a certain […]

New EDM Track!

New EDM Track!

Well, it’s taken a while, but finally my new track is done. “Turn Up the Night” EDM/pop, uptempo, fun. Mixing this one took longer than usual, because I was trying some new techniques. But I think the end result is worth it. Hope you like it!   Are you an artist that needs some new […]

58th #Grammys 2016

58th #Grammys 2016

This year’s Grammy awards! Maybe not the best ever, but in my mind it had some good points. First the tributes: I thought the Lady Gaga David Bowie tribute was fantastic. She was the perfect person to do it- I think they came from the same planet. But her energy was palpable and infused the […]

Should Music Make You Sick?

Should Music Make You Sick?

So I read this article about Mark Ronson and how he became sick because he was stressed and working so much to finish “Uptown Funk,” last year’s collaboration with Bruno Mars. Which is undeniably a fantastic track. The first time I heard it, it blew me away. And it helped me get through what was […]

David Bowie-Music Innovator

David Bowie-Music Innovator

I was so sad to hear that David Bowie passed away a couple of weeks ago. He was always one of my music heroes. I still love some his early work, especially. “Changes” and “Golden Years” being among my favorites. Then, of course there was his 80s era- “Let’s Dance” and “China Girl.” It was […]

Great Music Everywhere…

Great Music Everywhere…

I’m trying to fight the urge to curl up and hibernate till spring. It’s not easy, let me tell you. But one thing that’s inspiring me to get out is to hear some live music! I’m kind of amazed how easy it is to go hear live music. It’s everywhere! At least in the area […]
