Not too long ago I receive another link to a new (well to me it’s new) music site. I could call it a music service site as that is basically what they are doing. It’s called Radio Airplay. Like many other music service sites out there they will offer you the opportunity to get you music heard by the masses. They have their own radio service, like last fm. When you sign up they will...

Daft Punk on the state of EDM
houseofbong: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2013/apr/15/daft-punk-electronic-dance-music-crisis “Electronic dance music is having “an identity crisis”, Daft Punk have declared. In their first interview to promote their new album Random Access Memories, due next month, the French duo claimed EDM “is in its comfort zone”. “It’s not moving one inch,” Thomas Bangalter complained. “That’s not what...

Music Jobs UK
At the London event, one of my contacts at the networking sessions mentioned that Music Jobs UK is the place to look for Singers and Rappers as well as other producers to work with. Seen as making requests on this site does not bear any fruit I didn’t see the harm in giving it a try. While I was giving it the once over before registering I found many professionals on there. Ranging from...

Music Think Tank
I came accross this site by checking out some spam I got from another website. They was promoting some kind of service dealing with radio airplay, on they had a link to Music Think Tank. The thing that caught my attention was the article on finding your natural audience. It got me thinking about who I want to target. It advises you as the artist look at your self, what music and acts you like....
Say hello to an old friend
While at my sisters house I asked my nephew to set up my old G4 so I could get some stuff off it. When he finally got round to it 10 hours later I got this warm feeling inside. I hadn’t used it for over 5 years now since I left London for the South coast. I wished I brought it down with me at the time but I had my reasons for thinking it was the best idea to leave it. It’s not the best...
I’m back after a tiring weekend in London at the LEME 2013 event. I must admit that it was alright. From the twitter followers for the event I guessed it would not be something big, but I can see it getting bigger in years to come. So you get a round picture it’s best I start from the begining. At first I was contemplating should I bother to go to this event. The only thing I could...

Breath and stop
I just been submitting some old tracks of mine for un up coming event. I’m really glad I did cause I was able to check out my tracks with a fresh pair of ears. Now I understand why people will make tracks then sit on them for months before anyone gets to hear them. While listening back to them I could point out things I could do and should have done the first time around. They was noting...
Using iPhone for tumblr
Using my iPhone has it’s positive side, this being I can post on the fly, however my fingers must be to big cause I keep leaving mistakes left right and centre. I only seem to notice after I have posted something. Sometimes I catch it early, other times I may see something and it’s a pain in the arse to correct it. Apple you have not really made my life any easier. Yes I am using my...

What to do next
At this moment in time I have started my time off from work a day early. I was originally only have 4 days but managed to get 9 instead. While I want to just lay in bed I know I got things I could be doing, like finishing this elusive ep. So in my time off I will be going to London for the LEME (London Electronic Music Event) and also crack on with my music. I also plan when I come back to reduce...
