What has kept me from posting? I dont know. No good excuses, really. But here’s what i HAVE been doing:
Made a remix for Amsterdam songstress and longtime friend Giovanca. My extremely laidback remake of her cool song “On My Way” will be included on the upcoming collector’s edition cd of her debut album Subway Silence (Out: 23 October).
DJ-ed in Singapore at end party of Spikes Asia, the first pan-Asian advertising awards festival
Made a tune for the new website of my girlfriend’s clothing brand Spoom as well as shot and edited two ‘making of’ videos for them
Working on a track for upcoming cd of Dutch comedian Howard Komproe “HowardFM”
Promoted a 5-song EP plus 2 remixes (Alif Tree & Aaron Jerome) by Mr.Windmill & me to labels, dj’s and radio. Lots of nice feedback. This EP will get a digital release soon.
Now for some much deserved bloglight on longtime collabo artist Sole Profit, who I’ve been making tracks with since hooking up through mp3.com (remember when that was THE music site?).
This Californian cat – currently living in Atlanta – is seriously one of the nicest mc’s you never heard. Hard hitting punchlines, story telling skills, versatile flows, a sense of humour and the ability to translate a wide variety of ideas and emotions into dope rhymes.
Man, i’m getting the hang of this blogging! Hehe.. Since I’m sharing some of my music, here’s a mix i did last year that is perfect for the (upcoming) Spring and Summer nights. It starts off really laidback and relaxed and slowly picks up speed and energy. Some Brazilian and latin vibes, soulful electronic music, DEEP house joints and jazzy disco. So much for the label sticking, just play loud and enjoy..
