Hello fans! It’s been a long time since I last spoke with you and I am sorry about that. With the holidays exploding on to the scene, countless family things and general time lost, I just have not had the chance to type out anything. But today I do have some good news!
You might recall that I mentioned working on a Christmas album. I actually completed the final master mix out a few days before Christmas and sent it to my distributor. Unfortunately, at the same exact time, my web and email hosting company was bought by another company. As a result, all of the email server settings changed and I did not even think to adjust my phone and computer mailbox settings.
Long story short, my distributor sent me several requests to make the final approvals which I did not get until the tail end of January when I finally fixed the mailbox settings issue. I finished the approvals and it finally got released.
SO! Without further ado, you can check out my new album on your favorite medium of choice:
Let me know what you think! I also plan on finishing up Expanse as soon as I feel its ready. However, I am still short a song or two and I won’t release it until I feel like it’s where I want it to be.
Been working for a while on this more aggressive sound and I think I am getting where I want to be. What do you think?
Hey there fans! The 6i Studios have been quiet more or less as the Christmas season has come and gone and the New Years time will be coming soon. I have been remixing a few of my old pieces but I am not sure if I will release them any time soon. I want to release songs that I really feel ‘click’ to me and many of the ones I have been toying with are not ‘clicking’ just yet. Perhaps that will change… we’ll see.
On a completely different note, I wanted to share something that I found interesting. One of my influences and an artist that I keep running on my Pandora stations most of the time is the Electronica artist Asphalt Jungle. For years I was scouring the internet to figure out where these guys came from and what they are doing now. I always found links to discography, discussions about the famous book and movie of the same name but nothing about the electronic artist.
Finally, I did some more complex research and I learned the identity of the band that I enjoy so much. It is actually a duo of world-famous guitarist Brian Tarquin who has made an impressive list of production albums for some of the best guitarists in the business and Chris Ingram (who seems to be mostly unknown). Considering that I am such a huge fan of amazing guitars and electronic music, it makes perfect sense that I would be so interested in this artist and their signature sound. Good to know!
Otherwise, have a safe and happy New Years from the friends and family of DJ6i. See you next year! DJ6i Out!
