Giovanca – On My Way Remix

Giovanca - On My Way (Jay.Soul Remix)

Almost forgot about this one! Last September i made a remix of Holland’s rising music star Giovanca‘s song On My Way. It ended up on the special edition of her first album Subway Silence (Dox, 2009).

Being that she was pretty much the first singer i ever recorded songs with (from around ’98) and a longtime close friend, it was nice to have the chance to do this remix.

Grab a cool drink, find a spot in the sun (or shade), kick your feet up and enjoy the extremely laidback, lazy and jazzy summer vibes…

p.s. – here’s the uptempo original version of On My Way
Also, Giovanca is releasing her 2nd album While I’m Awake today. Congrats.

Video for Yan’An Xi Lu

Yea. Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul’s song Yan’An Xi Lu now has a video! It’s also on YouTube and for everyone in China: watch it on Youku!

Shot mostly at night on and around one of Shanghai’s main traffic arteries of the same name (Yan’An West Road aka 延安西路).

Highly professional equipment used: one digital compact photo camera’s video function and my MacBookPro’s built-in webcam. Martin Scorcese, eat my shorts..

This song is off the new Shanghaii Lights EP (BPSS/It Won’t Stop, 2009).

Update!

09-HeadphonSepia
I’m still here. No worries.

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.
  • Mixed all vocals for 9 songs on the upcoming album “Goddess” of California/Atlanta singer Nonameko (Sole Profit‘s wife). Buy the cd or mp3s here
  • Re-doing a track with Swedish singer Cecilia Stalín (with whom Mr.Windmill & I previously recorded Summer Dresses)
  • I promise i’ll be back with a free download type post soon!

    If u’re in Shanghai, catch me dj-ing @ Barbarossa every Tuesday and @ The Shelter this Friday, October 2.

    peace

    Sole Profit ft. Nonameko – FRESH!

    Sole Profit ft. Nonameko "Fresh" mp3 promo

    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.

    Global Deep Sounds Vol.1 mix

    Global Deep Sounds - vol.1

    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..
