Don’t look now, it’s 2010!?!
Well here we are, living in the future, still no flying cars… I’d settle for automated cars, then I could at least make use of time on the road, plus there wouldn’t be the pesky need to remain sober. As I move into the future it amazes me to think how fast time really does pass, and how slow things change. Here’s hoping things will continue to get better on all levels!
Anyhow, so it’s been a while since I let you know what’s going on. I’m sure you’ve been anxiously awaiting another exiting post, so here we are, the wait has ended
In the last couple months I’ve been focusing on taking Steamtown Records to the next level. We’ve begun talks with a new distributor, gotten some releases up on Juno Download and we’ve added another artist to the roster. We’re still a fledgling label, so right now we’re very open to new artists and all you have to do to get on our promo list is ask. Send new music to: submissions at steamtownrecords dot com, or use the Soundcloud drop box on the right panel here to send stuff directly to me.
The ‘Strange Attractor’ EP has been receiving support from Duane Barry & T R O, I’m very stoked to see those tunes finding their way into the hands of such talented DJ’s/Producers. The forthcoming (and long overdue) remixes of ‘Anything More’ and ‘French Ghost (le reve)’ are finally finished, you can hear them on Soundcloud and reserve them on Juno Download. Official release date is Jan. 22, 2010
A few weeks ago I did a DJ set for a small benefit show at the Graveyard pub in the East Atlanta Village. We helped raise money to help an incredibly cute and friendly dog get badly needed and costly surgery. It was an interesting afternoon to say the least, I wound up backing up Elemental Emcee of Dropbombz on my Ableton rig, I even did some scratching with delay feedback and did some ‘yes-man’ style singing/rapping. Then I played a set of slower & softer music, since it was early in the day and the crowd wasn’t looking to get blown up into a late night dancing frenzy. Later that night we checked out a local metal band called ‘Royal Thunder’. Turns out I went to high school with their singer & bass player. She’s got some serious pipes, and the band overall was very solid, if you like that sort of dark throbbing metal then click here for their myspace page.
I’ve been spending lots of time in the studio working on my forthcoming album “Par for the Curse”. I may post some videos of behind-the-scenes action soon, stay tuned.
In other news DJ Notech is stepping things up. He’s been helping me run Steamtown and soon he’ll be dropping some new DJ mixes and hopefully some original productions. He, along with Adam Bomb & Funk’s Not Dead tore up the Highland Inn Ballroom for NYE, there should be some video clips surfacing soon (shot by yours truly). You can catch both of these incredibly talented DJ’s every Tues. at Estoria & Thurs. at the Highland Inn Ballroom (both Venues are in Atlanta, check Facebook for events listings).
Well, I just crossed the 500 word mark. Management says I should try to keep posts around 500 or less. So, I bid you adieu, I shall try not to wait so long before my next post.
All the best to you and yours for 2010!
