Hello fans! I am excited to announce the release of the fifth song from my upcoming EP, Expanse. I call this new song “Street Fire” and it’s dedicated to the people in my new city (see the post about Relocation if you aren’t sure what I mean). But the true motivation is something very cool and deserves to be told.
If you do not know, I am a Christian and I am not afraid to admit it. One of the things I have always enjoyed is seeing the different ways that God can use my skills. I’ve never written a song for God, nothing could speak to him. But, this is close. You see, my family and I agreed to work with a great mission called “Freedom Fire” and they do some great outreach things in the Kansas City area. One of them is a Friday Night celebration where they invite almost 100 kids from an impoverished, inner-city apartment complex to a night of fun with face painting, sports, food, etc. I had the honor of volunteering at this event with my wife and kids. I was amazed at the positivity of the kids even though I saw the very dangerous and scary world they lived in. It reminded me that you can find a fire in people off the streets that burns brighter than many churches.
As a result, I combined hip hop elements, beats, trap and techno elements to this track. I actually wrote the beat the day after I saw the kids and I could just imagine them dancing to it. This is a track unlike any other track that I have made and it has a great mission! Check it out!
I think it’s safe to say that my decision to modify my style has paid off in massive dividends. I am happy to release my second track on my techno themed album. This is a sweet and calming track with some amazing melodies. I think the chorus of this song is probably the most amazing one I have ever made. It brought me to tears and I am not even lying.
I hope you enjoy… Take Flight.
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?
Wow! What an exciting time! The Christmas album is underway and I just received an unexpected present – a video for Currents and Windrider from my friends at OliverDomain.com I know for a fact that the video engineers on that team are very busy with their Kinder Playtime Project so I was pleasantly surprised and excited. I will post the links to the videos once they are finalized. Otherwise enjoy and don’t forget to pick up your copy of DJ6i – Currents EP from your favorite digital music house!
Hey guys! I know many have asked me when my next EP will drop. I have been struggling a great deal with the final track because I wanted it to be markedly different than the rest of the tracks on the album. Well, I was finally able to achieve that sound. This is a sample of the final track – Currents. Remember, this is a WORK IN PROGRESS so the final will sound different in the end. I hope you all enjoy it! Send me your feedback! DJ6i is 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!
