Kicking off the month with a post-release promotion push for my new EP!
The response to “Ear Candy” has been overwhelmingly positive and I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been supporting me so far.
Shout-out to Mishka Dj for posting a great review of my EP on his website and sharing the release! His blog is written in Russian so I am using Google Translate to understand. The review signs off with “Отличная музыка для релаксации” which translates to “Great music for relaxation”, and I completely agree – especially with the tracks mentioned where the vocoder vocal is not present.
A track from the EP, “Dragons” entered the RepostExchange Top 40 underground music chart at position #20.
Results for the KINGDØMS – Senses remix contest are in and although my entry didn’t win, it was ranked #12 out of all entries and #1 from the UK! If you haven’t listened to it yet, check out the video below!
More remixes and videos on their way!
New Serum preset pack available! This comes with all of the presets that I created and used in the production of “Ear Candy” along with 6 wavetables for use in creating your own presets, each one crafted using a track from the EP.
Until further notice, I have stopped sale of shipped physical merchandise due to the ongoing pandemic, however once restrictions loosen – expect new merch!
Coronavirus Pandemic Updates
A global coronavirus pandemic has grounded flights across the world, local travel restrictions are in place across many countries and events have been cancelled or rescheduled.
Across countries worldwide there has been over 1.7 million reported cases, over 100,000 reported deaths and the world is scrambling for medical supplies. Closer to home, reports are saying nearly 9,000 people have died in the UK to date owing to the COVID-19 disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
I talked about some of the potential implications of increased adherence to recommended social distancing measures and travel restrictions on the music industry in an earlier post. These strong measures are a significant disruption to not just the music industry, but across all sectors. However, they are the lesser of two evils. The pressure on healthcare and loss of life would be significantly greater than current levels without them.
It is encouraging to see creative minds working around circumstance and utilizing the available tools to continue doing what they do best. Live streams from isolating performers are common on all social platforms with this capability, which has grown into festivals being organised where these live streaming performers are brought into one place and given a set slot to perform in.
