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.
