Thanks to an amazing hint from my original mentor, David Campos, I was able to figure out how to give my songs more volume kick without killing the dBs. It’s amazing what a few minor changes to the studio config can do to make songs really stand out! I am in the process of remastering my Currents EP to give them the extra kick. I will post the updated songs to SoundCloud later on. DJ6i out!
After some downtime and DJ6i finishing his Master’s classes, he finally got around to finishing the 4th track from the Currents EP. The fourth track is called “Frostfall” and is a song mixing dubstep elements with drum ‘n’ bass and tied together with DJ6i’s signature sound. The story behind this song is actually twofold. When DJ6i started creating this song, Oklahoma (and the entire Midwest for that matter) was facing a record low temperature for the winter and record amounts of ice and snow. This freezing weather inspired the creation of a new song and inspired the creation of a new story character who generated ice from within his body. These two elements together brought about the creation of Frostfall. Enjoy this track and let the DJ know what you think!
The DJ has been very busy in the studio the past few months and you guys get to reap the rewards. I have created a new track for you all to enjoy! My newest track is an experiment in the world of drum and bass and is my first ever use of a vocals for drops. I promised myself when I first began writing music as an electronic artist that I would not create cliche music with corny Sci-fi movie quotes and I am not starting today. There is only one vocal sound clip and it is something much less obscure.
Submitted for my fans to review, please check out Subdementia, the 3rd track on my upcoming EP, Currents.
The DJ is in the house and cooking up some great stuff! I decided to stay home instead of do anything fancy out tonight. Also, my beloved took the kids to see their aunt so I am home alone. After dropping Polysonic, I couldn’t help but keep my hands in the studio and I am GLAD I did!
By taking another piecemail track I had shuttered for several months, I began to feel a new vibe coming on and I created a flowing 145bpm track named ‘Windrider’ because it really personifies the excitement, calmness and fear of what it might feel like to ride atop the wind like a leaf. I used a great deal of filtering and gating mixed with some other techniques. I think the end result speaks for itself.
I hope you enjoy my second new track off my recently named second EP – Currents. Take a listen to Windrider! DJ 6i Out!
I know it has been over 3 years but AT LAST I got my act together and completed a new track. I teased you with it 5 days ago but I finally have it ready. Check out the latest song from DJ6i – Polysonic!
In this track I took several new elements into use that I had previously been experimenting with including phased quantitization, multi relays and extensive crossfades. I hope you enjoy the new track as much as I enjoyed making it. It is only a basic example of the amazing things my latest studio application is capable of producing.
Enjoy! DJ6i out!
Out of the empty blog rides Dj6i. It’s been a long time friends and it has been a long time for reasons beyond my control. I have been in a constant state of flux after a silly decision to try and sell my house. We ended up keeping it so life is slowly retruning to normal but with adding a fourth child that normal is still a different sort of normal. My studio is back up and I have added two nice KRK Near Field monitors to my rig so I can hear the music in a different way than headphones. I have lots of ideas for songs and am still working on my song that I have named “Defrost” but it is taking a while to get it to reach the place that I want it to be.
In other, more interesting news (perhaps), I have used the awesome services of CDBaby.com again to help me move up. They are pressing 10 copies of the Audiophiles EP, complete with my artwork and custom designs. I should have them within the next few days. Why did I do this? Simple! The streaming stations such as Pandora, Spotify, and Slacker are truly the movers and shapers of the new digital music age and in order to get your music on these engines, you have to send them a bonafide CD with artwork and all that can’t look like a home built disc. So, for just around 50 bucks, I was able to press 10 of those badboys. I will send one to each streaming company and keep the rest as gifts and/or prizes.
That brings me to my next question. Would any of you like an autographed copy of my EP? It may not be worth anything right now… and maybe not ever but it just might. Comment to me about what you would be willing to do to win an autographed copy of my first run EP. The best idea will win but you have to show me that you did it! Cool? Then I look forward to it!
