It seems a bit quiet here, but it is actually quite busy. Most of the work now in the studio is mixes and remixes. Some of these surface on SoundCloud and HearThis.at. But it just takes a lot of time to make really good mixes. There is a new release on YouTube for a remix of Loaded Gun by Denis Rodz from Spain. A dark hip-hop song that now also tells a story from the roaring 20s. There is also another collaboration with Evien from Los Angeles. Hopefully more news on that later.
Is it getting ready for 2018, or closing down 2017? I think I prefer the first then, but not after looking back of course. I am again very thankful for all the people taking the time to listen to my music. The stats are still looking fine for an indie artist. I am not looking for fame. I enjoy spending time in the studio, but it is always nice to be heard and get appreciation of course. In the past year I could see the decline of SoundCloud and the growing of hearthis.at. Interesting, but things are still developing and […]
A joy to make and a year in the making. The new clip for Memories. The clip will take you back to my old school in a small village near Leiden. About 5 years ago I attended a school reunion. A special one because an old class mate took the effort to get together the whole year of my class. About 48 people from my year. Most of whom I did not actually remember and there were still a few missing I did know, but a remarkable feat. It also guaranteed a get together of a great group of people […]
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 […]
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 […]
