After coming back from holidays, its straight to work at the studio. A first solo tryout will be followed by a tryout with one of the singers that very regularly visits the studio, Hanny. Eventually the plan is to perform live regularly. Of course the studio work also keeps on going. As I always say: “I don’t make the music, it comes to me”. I truly hope that one day you will come and visit B2FAB, somewhere, somehow and that Hanny and I will be able to amaze you with a great live show.
SoundCloud gets less and less listeners. To be prepared, all music is now also available at hearthis.at. Very unfortunate because I quite enjoyed SoundCloud for its ease of use and its open and musician friendly platform. More than once I saw people building their own radio station from mixes of underground, indie and mainstream music. Tuning into new songs from their favorite artists. Since its no longer a free service and starts asking for money, its all downhill. I still hope that SoundCloud can find a way up and also serve to the underground and indie artists. We will see. Of course […]
Visions of Japan – Angel Saint Goddess
Once in a while a dream comes true. A long time ago I wrote a dance song. Now it is a new release on all major streaming services. Angel Saint Goddess (feat. Lisa Michelle) in Japanese. The song was inspired by a special night out in Muenster Germany. Out of nowhere, an angel came and guided me to a club named Heaven. At that time I could not find a suitable female voice to really catch the dreamy feel of the song. So I explored something I did try before, a Vocaloid. Most Vocaloids can only sing in Japanese. At […]
Even though its only a home studio. The studio needs an upgrade once in a while. Editing 4K video is now standard for all new clips and I found that the latest music software expects a little bit more to power it. Even though the latest new hardware really is not that much faster than a few years ago, there have been advances in power usage as well. This not only translates into a more climate friendly studio, but also in less background noise in the studio from the fans cooling it. This all resulted in a few weeks of […]

Valentines Day star Kelly
Now isn’t that just what the doctor ordered? A brand new love potion from a brand new jazzy star: Kelly.
Plans for 2017
The music keeps flowing, so that will continue. There are also plenty of ideas for new video clips and a small backlog of clips that still need to be recorded. One important new year’s resolution still has to take shape: bringing B2FAB to the stage. Hopefully more on this later. Some upcoming songs will be jazzy and hopefully will feature a new star Kelly. She is a professional dancer and singer and she is really eager to explore new musical grounds. Its fantastic to work with her because she really knows what she wants and she has a pleasant silky […]
The year by numbers: Three top downloads!
This year ended with a bang. Finally everything came together in the new Waiting for a Miracle EP. Planned for last year, but hey? How can you plan new songs? Adding up the numbers for me also ended on a positive note. More than 2000 views on YouTube and more than 4500 listens on SoundCloud. Quite amazing since i do no promotion with fake viewers or listeners, something that is unfortunately very common. These are real people that took the time to listen to these songs. Amazing. Thank you. Diving into the numbers, the last month really shows a rise […]
Filming a clip for Stone in the RMO Leiden
To my surprise we were actually very welcome to spend a morning filming the the RMO Leiden. The Rijksmuseum voor Oudheden or Dutch National Museum for Antiquities. Iris, in charge of the communication was very kind and managed to give us all freedom to make this clip. It was the first ever request for filming a music video clip, she told us, as the museum is more used to TV and documentary film crews with focus on the actual collection. For me and Evelien an honor to be able to be there before opening hours. To be allowed to remove […]
