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!
Merry Christmas everybody! I hope this finds you all quite well! It took a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, but I managed to squeeze out a Christmas song this year. Although I had 80% of Jingle Bell Rock completed, the song really didn’t fit what I was hoping for so I went with this one instead. The main reason is that this year was a year where I can safely say that God has really blessed me this year and nothing anyone can say will take that away from me. I have LOTS of things to be joyful for this year and I wanted a song that would be a testament to that. So HEAR IT IS!
Merry Christmas to you all and I hope you enjoy Joyous World!
I promised all of you that new music was on its way so here we are! It’s the first full release from DJ6i since Roots Unplugged! Please take a moment to check out: DJ6i – CanonBall! In this remix, I pay tribute to one of my favorite Baroque period songs… Pachelbel’s Canon. The song is an amazingly soothing melody that is timeless. It’s structure has been used to create some of the most popular songs in the past 20-30 years… everything from Aerosmith to Avril Lavigne and even Bob Marley have used this chord structure.
Although this song is based off the public domain sheet music, I have done a considerable amount of modifications for my own style and of course, added various electronic elements to the piece. It may not be brand new, but it will give my listeners a taste of some other styles that I like and may incorporate in my next EP. Enjoy! And remember, I LOVE commentary, it helps me grow as an artist.
