Thanks :D

Hey everyone,

Thanks to everybody who tuned in and enjoyed my 1 hour mix (I had an extra bonus hour afterwards but nobody noticed since we only discovered the slot was available 5 minutes after I had say "goodbye" on the air). A special thanks goes out to those who spread the word!!

Let's keep the listeners coming and keep letting people know. Sooner or later Ottawa's gotta recognize ;)

Bench Igloofest Competition Mix Comeback

Hey everyone,

After 4 months of being off the grid due to school, I've uploaded my next trance mix. This one is sure to keep you entertained. After being off the decks this entire time it was nice to get back to making my smooth transitions and beating the crap out of my speaker system.

http://www.mixcloud.com/djarkaeus/bench-igloofest-competition/

I will have a download link up shortly. I will also be uploading my Roger Shah remix within this period.

In other awesome news, I will be doing a mix live on the radio and on the internet on CKCU FM Ottawa Live Music show December 29th @10pm Eastern Standard Time. You can tune in on the internet here:

LIGHTS remix

Hey everyone!

If you haven't been keeping up-to-date on my news, I recently submitted a remix for Roger Shah's "Dance With Me" contest on Talenthouse.com and I next weekend I found out the results!

In the meantime, I have entered a remix contest for the famous artist LIGHTS, remixing a special track that will be announced on the submission day

Between now and Christmas I will be allowing FREE downloads for my remixes over time (such as this http://soundcloud.com/dj-arkaeus/cell-7-red-dj-arkaeus-remix)  and submitting them to YouTube to broaden my audience. I also hope to have mixed up my promotional In Search of Sunrise type mix by the end of December so that I may use it to further push for my name to be known. Any help would always be appreciated.

Thanks for the continual support and I hope you've enjoyed what I have been doing thus far in my music career!

Show Frequency

Now that the summer term is complete and I'm back to full time university, the amount of time I spend on music will be much less, especially because this particular 4 month-term is extremely important. Due to this fact, I will be going from weekly Tuesday shows to once every Month. Specifically, the third week of every month on the Tuesday from 8:30pm to roughly 10pm Eastern Standard Time.

Don't forget that just because the frequency of the show has gone down, doesn't mean the quality of the shows will also decrease.

In other news, on the 20th of September I will most likely get my hands on those Sarah Solovay "Gone" stems which I gladly look forward to. I've also been working on a Roger Shah remix that is due for October 3rd. That remix will be huge for my career because of the quality of the remix that I've down thus far. It's more to my liking and I can honestly say I enjoy the sound much more than my others. But I won't be the judge of that contest, so hopefully others love it!

Sarah Solovay

Hey everyone!

I submitted a remix to the Sarah Solovay contest. Basically you need to vote me in to get me to Round 2 where I get my hands on her remix stems, in which I then make a remix for her and submit that for a chance to win!

http://www.talenthouse.com/creativeinvites/preview/a3a34271207f553974e844f982867629/255

Head on over to the link above and vote away please! I will not disappoint you all if I make it to Round 2.

Mixes and LiveStream

If you have not yet come to realize, I no longer record and upload my mixes to the PodOmatic site. This was because I hit the space limitations. But as a solution, I have been doing a live show every Tuesday at 8:30 till 9:30 or 10pm Eastern Standard Time.

The live show has been providing me with excellent results and I'm really glad I've managed to snag more listeners. I want to thank everyone for their continual support and the great feedback.

In other news, I will be participating in a remix contest for the artist Sarah Solovay. She personally asked me to enter, and so I really look forward to getting the chance of getting through round 1 and then acquiring the stems so I can put my skills to use.

In the meantime, my university term will be starting up again and I will most likely be spending more time producing music rather than remixing. It's important for me to make new and original material so I can try and get my name out in the business. Without a label or anybody supporting me (except my fans), it's extremely difficult. But until then; the more content, the better!

Another Remix!

Hey everyone!

I hope you all have checked out my Tuesday radio show that runs from 8:30pm to 9:30pm Eastern Standard Time on Shufflin.net's radio!

Thankfully, the show has gone quite well but we're still lacking listeners. I've been mixing up QUALITY tunes on the radio so if you've missed my podcasts, tune in!

In the meantime, I did a remix for an artist about a month or two ago but I haven't put the track on my SoundCloud/YouTube accounts yet due to waiting for the artist. Since he hasn't gotten around to making his EP, I will be sending out the track nice and early. Hope you all enjoy it, and don't forget to keep yourself up to date on my activities

Tuesday Shows

After a semi-successful turnout on Tuesdays show, I still managed to snag a couple more listeners. I hope to see the number increasing after every show and hope to have everyone out every Tuesday from 8:30pm to 9:30pm EST.


Don't forget to tune in early so you can catch the full show!

Radio Show Update

Hey everyone! So if you would like to come out and hear what I have to offer every Tuesday, go to the "Shufflin.net" website and tune in to the radio! After talking with the host of the site we've agreed to do it all through their radio. I will be holding video sessions as a bonus to the radio show and will let everyone know about that.

100th Post

Hey everyone!

So the EP has been live online for a while now, so I hope you go out and check it out.

I would also like to let you all know that I officially have my own weekly DJ show, which will be starting next week every Tuesday at 8:30pm EST and runs until 9:30pm.

The show will have many things going: Sometimes I'll do a full hour mix, others times I will be going over equipment, tutorials when it comes to DJing and producing, discussing where I get my music and my sources, and much more! It's important to note that my weekly DJ show is in collaboration with a website known as "Shufflin.net", the newest edition of "Melbshuffle.net".

I hope to see several people out next Tuesday!

http://djarkaeus.bandcamp.com/

If you're willing to pay higher, you're more than welcome to do so. The EP comes with 3 where the first two of songs are already available online for your ears to listen to. The third track is a new ambient sound that I wanted to share with you all.

EP Release

Hey everyone! I've got some very good news for you:

My first EP (Extended Play; ie. mini-album), containing three tracks, will be released very soon to a website near you! I'm hoping that I can get enough purchases from my audience that I can start putting those funds into a new server for me to store my mixes. I'm sorry if I haven't released any new mixes on my PodOmatic page, but it is unfortunately now filled to the last megabyte.

So on that note, over the summer I will be doing a lot of UStream Live mixes for you. If you haven't already seen, I posted the previous one online and I hope that the quality of the stream was more than satisfactory for everyone.

I also have other news concerning production and remixes. If you've heard the recent show, our good friend Pziezzo Electric has given me the stems for his song "When Worlds Collide" and I will be making a remix. Furthermore, I've also gathered some very cool Gregorian chant stems and I will be working on two remixes.

I've got lots planned and I hope you're all following very closely.

UStream.tv Live Mix #2

For those who came out last night and stayed up late to listen/watch, I just wanted to thank you all for the support! I noticed the small but significant increase in viewers/listeners, so that's awesome. You can expect me to do more of these live shows for everyone, and possibly start them earlier around 8:30pm or so.

If you couldn't find your way to the website last night or you were unable to, have no fear! I'll be recording every stream I do from now on and post them up.

Ambient Like Schulze

In the past few days I've been experimenting with different sounds to make my new big track for the album. This new genre is a type of style that was extremely dominant years and years ago. My love for those synth sounds have brought me to create my own tracks that will further help me develop and explore the world of production.

With all of this practice, I hope by the start of the summer that I'll finally be able to try out a style of trance. Without any vocals, I'll have to make due with either trance or uplifting trance, most likely the later considering it has a closer relation to the atmospheric drive of ambient.

In other news, I'll probably go on UStream Live sometime between now and mid April. It'll be like the last session that I did and I'll also be introducing new and local artists, so tune in if you can. If you want to hear more great remixes, you'll need to start tuning in to these live sessions, because I won't be uploading any mixes for a very long time. Best of Trance 5 has completely filled my online storage.

Update concerning my MelbShuffle.com DJ Status:
They've been doing updates and shuffling of admins (haha) and they're trying to get us do more live shows and have interviews, so I'll keep everyone posted on that. Should be a lot of fun because I would still like to be one of their official DJs.

Best of Trance 5

Good news and bad news:

Good news
  • Best of Trance 5 has been released!!
    http://depthsofmusic.podomatic.com/entry/2011-02-05T10_38_34-08_00
  • Currently working on my second album track
Bad news
  • It's getting harder and harder to upload mixes due to account space: trying to find solution without paying money, because, as you all know, I'm doing everything for you guys FREE
So with that, savor Best of Trance 5, continue to support me and keep up to date, and we'll get a huge boost sometime down the road (hopefully soon)

Until then, enjoy!

Work, Work, and More Work

Hey everybody!

I've been very busy since the new year started. I'm currently working on my second album track that will complete the tease that I gave you with "Prelude to Lunar Eclipse". My focus is on my production side rather than DJing, but nonetheless, keep your eyes peeled this week because I will be releasing a short Best of Trance 5 to the internet! I hope the fifth mix of my favourite mixes will please your ears just as well as it did mine.

Don't forget to keep updated with me through Facebook; my main source for posting small news. As I've said before we need to start spreading the word. I'm hoping that when I complete this mini album of mine that I'll be able to get it released through a record label and start making some cash to begin some advertising campaigns. But until then, be patient with my new production focus and keep yourself up-to-date for the newest teasers of my tracks.

2011

Welcome to 2011 everyone!

I've got a couple of things that I want to recap that happened over 2010 and also things to come in 2011.

Firstly, I'll be uploading a new Best of Trance episode that I mixed during my exam period in December, but unfortunately I had to rotate one of my podcasts over to another host site. (Breaking the Surface episode 1 can now be found here)

November 2009:
  • My DJ career started

2010:
So what has happened?
  • For the first time, one of my remixes is on a compilation album ! (Zero Tolerance)
  • I've been getting new gear and my popularity is constantly growing
  • I did a live mix on my local radio station
  • Met more artists and vocalists in order to continuously build my connections
2011:
What's to come?
  • If you haven't already heard, I've produced my first track and will continue to produce a full out album consisting of a classical genre and the hopes is to release music videos on my YouTube account
  • Try my best to get a record deal. I'm in need of some income with this career in order to open up more doors
  • I need some more recognition around the world and tons more fan interactions! Spreading the word helps more than you know! (How else did this small time artist known as Deadmau5 hit it off big in so little time?)
  • Obviously my skill as a DJ will get better as I mix more, so you can expect more quality mixes of the different genres that you've heard so far.
  • I'm hoping I can do collaborations with artists. My buddy Bullet of Reason and I might do a couple of tracks together, so watch it for that.
  • ???
  • Who knows!
I hope the best of luck for everyone in the year 2011 and I would love to hear from you. You know how to contact me.
