What’s New? | May 2020

April was a busy month and May is only going to get busier! I really appreciate all the support for my EP since the release and I’ll be continuing promotion activity for the immediate future.

There have been some great remix competitions about lately and since it will take some time to plan the next release, I’ll be keeping the ball rolling with remixes and collaboration opportunities in the meantime.

Over the course of April I remixed songs by Seven Lions, Grimes, Felix Cartal and Simón Mejía. I am really happy with how they all turned out and we will see what this month brings by way of new remixes!

I have made playlists on YouTube and Soundcloud for my remixes. Go and check them out!

What’s New? | April 2020

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!

Lyric video for my remix of “Senses”

More remixes and videos on their way!

Product Updates

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.

Music Updates

Last month was very busy and that theme will be continuing into the next couple of months with the upcoming release of “Ear Candy” on 31st March 2020.

The masters were sent for digital distribution in the middle of last month and I’m focused on pre-release promotion activity and getting everything ready for release day. All support and feedback received so far is greatly appreciated!

I’ve also just finished making a remix for a SKIO competition. The song is a really catchy new track from KINGDØMS called “Senses”. Listen to the original track and my remix below, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

What’s New? | February 2019

EP News

I missed the last months update as I’ve been working hard on my upcoming EP “Ear Candy”.

First round of listening to all of the tracks in order and outside of the DAW, plenty of notes on what I need to clean up. Busy week coming up then off to the distributor next weekend for a 31st March release date, which should give 6 weeks to do pre-release promotion.

More Music Updates

There is demand for beats, so I’ll be committing some time each weekend to building a library of them. I’m thinking it might be a place to start building the YouTube channel for my label.

New Merch

Once upon a time, I had a sweater and a t-shirt available in the store. I took the t-shirt down because it turns out there would have been up to an 8 week wait for delivery (although the sample eventually arrived after 3 weeks) and the manufacturer for the sweaters suddenly became unavailable.

I have the sample for the t-shirt still and I wear it often. I like it and am considering bringing it back, but there is very little I can do about delivery times from manufacturers. If I do bring it back, I will make clear about potential delivery timescales.

As far as genuinely new merch goes, I’ve just brought out a new hoodie and it is very comfortable, arrived in around a week. This one is here to stay, available in three colours.

I got the charcoal hoodie (dark grey) but I’m probably going to get another one of each colour. You should do the same. Buying my merchandise supplements my personal investing in my music.

I’ve also made the Full Vocal Chain preset available as a standalone product, so it will always be available. Keep your eyes open for updates on the Giveaways page!

What’s New? | December 2019

Music Update

My remix of Gallant – Sharpest Edges has had over 1,000 plays on Soundcloud!

Huge thanks to everyone who has listened to and supported this track so far, I really appreciate it.

Blog Update

I’ve been very busy getting my upcoming EP ready, but with production winding down for the holidays as it nears completion I have a little more time to be thinking about the content for this blog.

Going forward the posts will have an educational and informative theme to them. I know there are many other people out there who are on a similar journey and I’d like to think that sharing my own experience will help.

Merch Update

The jumper and tee have been removed from the store. Alternatives are being looked into and should be available soon.

Due to the popularity of the FL Studio Patcher Full Vocal Chain preset, it will be made permanently available in the store as a standalone item in the next update of the free presets and will remain free until 31st January 2020, after which it will only cost £1.

What’s New? | November 2019

New Music

If you aren’t already familiar with The Big Lez Show, then make sure to check it out here.

This remix has been something I’ve planned to make for a long time and I’m really happy with the way it turned out! Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments and if you like it, show someone else who you think will appreciate it!

The upcoming EP is on track for release in early 2020, some of the songs are ready. Lots of work has been done and there is still lots more to do! Expect a new set of accompanying products to support the release of the EP, including a new preset pack and clothing!


Engagement & Promotion

Huge thanks to everyone who has supported the Sharpest Edges remix. This track has so far peaked at #20 on the Repost Exchange Dance & EDM Top 40 charts and has been fluctuating in position but staying in the chart for most of November!

For anyone looking to promote their music and grow their Soundcloud fan base, the results of using Repost Exchange’s Free Forever plan have been initially very positive.

It’s also pretty simple, you can listen to music on campaigns and repost songs from there or you can review songs sent directly to you in order to earn credits. Credits are used to either run a campaign yourself or send songs directly to other members. The cost in credits of each repost of your track is based on the amount of followers the member reposting your track has, and the amount of credits you earn for tracks you repost is based on the amount of followers you have. It is a fair and proportionate system that benefits all users in various ways.

I personally have seen an increase in followers of over 675% over the 2 months I’ve been using it so far. In real numbers, that is growing from 41 followers when starting to 277 followers at the time of writing this post. Hopefully that growth continues to scale over time!

If you sign up through my referral link, I get free credits to promote my music! (It’s really easy, Repost Exchange links directly to your Soundcloud profile.)

New Space

For anyone wondering where I have been the past few months – I’ve relocated and now set up a new dedicated work space. I’ve been investing time into workflow optimisation for music production and building the foundations of my record label, Stonelion Records.

“How To” Blog Posts

I’ve been on my musical journey now for 22 years and although I’ve built up a deep knowledge over this time, I’m always still learning and encourage my friends, fans and community to do the same.

I’m aware that what comes naturally to one person may not to someone else, so I want to share my knowledge with my community. In these posts I will cover a wide range of music-related topics.

If there is any specific topic(s) you would like me to cover, then I want to hear from you!

Email me your suggestions at: contentrequests@anotherenigma.com

Upcoming Releases

I’m working on original music, and an EP is on the horizon. I’ll keep you all updated with the progress of this project as it develops!

I have another couple of remixes in the pipeline, one is ready pending contracts and working with this artist has been great! I’m really excited about this remix and looking forward to working with him again in the (hopefully near) future!

The other remix is in progress and for a competition. It will be released to only my socials within the next couple of weeks, and I think it’s coming together very nicely.

My latest single, “How About” has been promoted on Flash Jack’s Rock And Roll Circus! You can find their video here.
