Server Host Shuffling

If you haven't heard or noticed from my PodOmatic podcasts, it seems that I'm always over my bandwidth quota and that I've reached my maximum allowance of space. Because of this, I will need to find myself a backup server which will have some of my less popular podcasts. I was hoping to upload to my first server, MyPodcast.com, but unfortunately the quality that they expect to upload is extremely disgusting. So on that note, I will be doing some redirecting in the near future to my newly created PodcastMachine host server. Hopefully by the time both of these servers capacity for space are exhausted, I'll have gained a resource for some amount of constant income from all of this music activities.

With addition to the new year, I would also like for the listeners to be able to purchase for a very cheap price my "Best of Trance" mixes, being able to download the full beautiful 320kbps quality with sizes ranging around 100mb's. I would prefer to release my mixes as an album under a label (such as those mixes that you would find under the "Various Artists" section at your local music store) so that I will be able to gain revenue that will grant me access to a web host server with huge space and bandwidth.

Until then, spread the word as much as you can!

In other news, this will be the last time I say that the "Red" remix will be released very soon.

I've got a few things planned for the upcoming holidays, including a live mix that will be feature on UStream.com, so check back on my social network sites for more information!

YouTube Account

After much delay, I am please to announce that my YouTube account now has all of the remixes that I have made thus far. Feel free to pass the links on, comment, like, or whatever that you want. But as always, the first time my remixes are posted will be on here with a link. My YouTube account is only used to promote myself and the original artists.

In other news, I'm hoping to send out my newest remix to the internet by December 9th. I would have to say that this remix will be my first try at something that is not Drum'n'Bass, but rather progressive. For a sneak peak of what it may sound like, check out the links below:

My remix sounds like the same dirty synths such as:
Redial - The Boss (F.O.O.L. Remix)
Funkerman & Shermanology - Now or Never (Midibyte Re-re-remix)

Inactivity

I know I haven't been all that active for a while now, So I must apologize. I've been fairly busy with university courses but have no worries as I've been slowly working on the next epic remix track. I'll also be uploading all of my previous remixes to my YouTube channel tonight so expect to see those online. I'll try to get around to editing and uploading my live show when I get the chance. Main priority right now goes toward school.

By next Friday I hope to have nothing left to work on for school so I'll probably upload a new mix so watch out for that too. And as always, when Exam time comes around I won't be as active for updating posts but when I'm bored from studying my remixes and mixes will be tarnished and polished.

Remix Galore

So I've stashed away from stems from different remix contests that I was unable to participate in, and today I dug up one song and I've tweaked it all morning and afternoon. This is probably by far the dirtiest, darkest remix I've have made thus far. I'll give away a small teaser in a week or two once it begins to shape even more.

In the meantime, I got the live recording and I'll be editing that over the span of this week. I'll be uploading that along with my remix pack. I need ideas for future podcast mix so don't hesitate to send me an email.

First Remix Available on an Album

Hope you all enjoy! Comes with the instrumental edition if you buy the deluxe pack

Remix Pack

I'll be releasing some of my existing remixes to my SoundCloud account in the next week or so if you guys liked any of them feel free to head on over there, comment, download, and spread the word.

Bad/Good News

Bad News: Unfortunately, the Pendulum remix contest is open to UK residents only. So I will not be completing and publishing my remix anytime soon as I have more important deadlines to worry about at the moment. So this project will be put on hold until further notice.

Good News: Because I'm not participating in the contest, I don't have a deadline. This way, I can bring out some full potential on the song in any fashion that I see fit.You will hear a new remix that I'll be working on by November 8th however so that will be my make up for missing out. I'll have my new mix out soon too.

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Plans for the Future

The remix contest deadline for Pendulum's "The Island" is on Monday, October 18th. Yes, this is the remix I've been working on, so expect something to be up online by then. I will provide the link.

In other good news, I've found yet another remix contest to participate in. The deadline will be on November 8th which is cutting it close. I will be working hard to come up with something sounding good for this one. Have no fear, I will most likely post up a new mix for everyone shortly!

In the meantime, hold your seats!

Saturday, October 9, 2010

Update No.2

So just today I sent in my remix files for the Madeleine Bloom Remix contest, so now we must all wait for the official compilation release on Fixtstore.com 

As for the remix, I've been tweaking the genre lately and so I'm having some difficulty trying to come up with a final draft. I should have a general template done after this long weekend and hopefully to my standard before the deadline.

I've also entered my recent mix to a LetsMix.com contest as usual, so if you wouldn't mind going over and voting/listening that would be great!

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Update

So ever since the live mix I've been keeping myself quite busy with my personal private life. Good news as you may have heard is that I'll be working yet again on a remix, and the contest will be closing on October 19th. Speaking of remixes, my "Zero Tolerance" by Madeleine Bloom remix will be my first song that will go onto an album! The exact email was as follows:

Dear Artist,

Thank you for participating in the Madeleine Bloom “Zero Tolerance” Remix Contest. We want to include your Remix in a compilation release of the best remixes from the contest! (The final track list has not been determined, but we want to make sure we have your final WAV files collected so we can have the option to include it.)

So that was really good news. So things to expect in the near future are:
  • Remix for a popular Drum'n'Bass band
  • Madeleine Bloom “Zero Tolerance” Remix Compilation featuring my remix
  • Psychedelic Psytrance Phase #2 Mix Release
Don't forget to comment on posts, "Like" me on Facebook, and add me on your Instant Messenger so we could chat sometime, or if you have questions don't hesitate to message them to me or email me using my email, djarkaeus@mail.com

Talk to you guys soon!

Podcast Delay

I was previously hoping to get a mix out after the live mix, but due to unfortunate circumstances, I will be postponing the mix and replacing my time from today until October 18th working on a new remix. The deadline is much tighter than Blue Stahli's Corner which means I need to really work on this remix quickly. I hope the end results will be pleasing.

I hope you're all looking forward to Thursday; the live radio show hosted by CKCU 93.1FM in Ottawa!

Live Radio Show

Hey listeners!

Next Thursday is the big day that you can catch me on the decks LIVE on the internet (and the radio if you're within my region). The details of the show are below:

Thursday, September 23rd DJ Arkaeus will be performing a one hour set on the local radio station "CKCU 93.1" on the 10pm-11pm show "Ottawa Live Music". The set will consist of 5 different genres that will be elegantly cut and there will also be some interviewing going on during some of the songs. If you're local to Ottawa then you can tune in to 93.1FM, but if you're around the world you can catch me on the internet stream that can be found here:

http://www.ckcufm.com/sites/default/themes/ckcu/ckcuradio.php

This show will be unlike any other that I've made, and the exciting part is that I will be putting in genres that will have its own full mix some time in the future. Expect a high-quality set using some of my favorite genres.

In other news, I've re-posted my remix of "Corner" by Blue Stahli to the Contest page so hopefully the link will be up for listening. The first version of my remix seemed too dry but this new edition has been really spiced up with some cool features and sounds.

I'm looking forward for you all to hear me live on the decks so tell your friends about me and spread the word. Don't forget: the more fans that I can gather, the more likely you can get top 320kbps quality CDs, merchandise, and much more! Don't forget to "Like" me on Facebook at the following link:

Friday, September 3, 2010

First Live Show

Well it turns out that this upcoming radio will in fact be my third time on the decks live. I've been on vacation in Cuba for a good week and I had the chance to play for about a hundred people at the resort's club. Lots of fun but it wasn't all that good because I didn't have my controller and my music. Other than that it was a really great time and I'm so thankful for being given the opportunity to play.

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Best of Trance 4

Hey listeners and trance lovers!

I have some superb news: I've finally purchased my first set of decks (Hercules DJ Control Steel USB Controller). For the next few days I'll be working on the mix and the expected release date will be on August 21st at night. The next set of the most anticipated Depths of Music mix will be ten times more professional than the last, so you can expect a top of the line, world class mix to be released. This hour long set will keep you on your feet, on edge, and raise the emotions inside you.

Until Saturday night, have fun!

Sunday, August 8, 2010

Progression

Hey listeners! So I have been keeping myself busy. I've been working on Blue Stahli's Corner remix for a while now and still preparing BoT4. I can't begin to describe how emotional this mix is going to be. So there are two things for you to watch out for: my new remix and the new Best of Trance session.

Cerebral Anomie Series

This new acid techno series named "Cerebral Anomie Series" is another series that I'm beginning but this one has a definitive ending. The series is a recap of the most popular acid techno songs from the 90s and the early 2000s.

"Brain", the ego taken by three artists (Michael Da Brain, D-Noiser, and Ray Clarke), created a spectacular series of songs under the recording label "Brain Recordings". Brain recordings started with their first release in 1996 with Brain#1 "Acid Fly" by Michael Baur (aka. Michael Da Brain) and ended in 2004 with Brain#43 "Inschalah" by Frank D. Noise (aka. D-Noiser). The three masterminds behind Brain Recordings was an epiphany for its genre. Unfortunately the legendary "Brain" died in 2004 from the baby boom of new genre in the underground and mainstream.

Now, in 2010, I am here to pay tribute to those three artists with the new Cerebral Anomie Series which features all 43 tracks. Each series episode will consist of different brain songs from the years without any added effects. The transitions are of course made by me.

I hope you enjoy this classic mix.

http://depthsofmusic.podomatic.com/entry/2010-07-28T16_45_54-07_00

You can find all of Brain's tracks here.

Brain Series

The first acid techno mix for the series called "Brain Series" will be released tonight so tune in for a fine mix.

You've waited -- it has been 5 podcasts later but I will be ending the summer with a brand new Best of Trance podcast featuring some wicked new tunes! Expect even better quality mixing and mastering for this next Best of Trance #4 release! Don't forget to email me if you think you've got an epic trance/vocal trance tune that you want to be heard.

Acid Techno Mix

Friday, July 23, 2010

New Song

Hey listeners! I produced my first song last night after a years long break. The song plays on the role of Acid Techno and will be the demo song for listeners to hear before the release of the new Acid Techno series!

http://www.4shared.com/account/audio/NS59KgfK/DJ_Arkaeus_-_Another_Roll.html
Password for Access: 3n3rgy

The song has a very basic template for most Hard Acid Techno such as the style of using the 808s or the 909s. I used a Copper and Silver synthesizer for the annoying melody and worked with the length of the tune. Very easy to start off with and it only took me about an hour to create.

I've also got an update on my remix that I've been working on. I'm in the final stages of editing and adding SFX and it should be online shortly after the next podcast has been uploaded. I'll be remixing a strange genre into a Drum'n'Bass beat mix that has a glitchcore theme.

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

New Mix Decided

The next podcast mix has been decided. The good news is the following: if you really like the heavy electronic music, this is for you. Bad News: if you hate repetition and high-pitched noises then refrain from listening to this podcast.

The upcoming mix will bring back a 1980s-early 2000s genre known as Acid Techno, or in this case, Hard Acid Techno. H.A.T was popular for using its three Roland series hardware instruments: Roland TB-303, Roland TR-808, and Roland TR-909. I grew up listening to this kind of music when I was a kid so as annoying as it sounds, it drives me. I'm looking forward to completing my tracklist and then mixing and mashing some of these songs.

Monday, July 19, 2010

Remix Production In Order

Now that the first episode of Breaking the Surface has been released, onto finishing that remix. I'll be deciding on the next genre to mix that will be released on either July 31st or August 7th.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Remix Production In Order

Good news listeners: I'll be working on another remix for a competition.The original song is pretty crappy but I'll turn it around!

Update on the rock mix: I'll need a few more days to wait for a little something to add to the mix. It's very easy to do the mix but if what I wait for comes soon, many of you will be surprised. Expect a release by at most Saturday night.

Sunday, July 11, 2010

New Series

Hey rock fans! I'm starting a new series of rock mixes known as "Breaking The Surface" which will turn out to be a musical story about the life of a human. Tune in to my first episode when it goes live to find out more as to how "Breaking The Surface" will be organized and arranged.
