You are an amazing producer! Your songs are mental! But for some reason, no one invites you to perform at clubs or other events. You begin to ask yourself: Am I really good? Where am I failing? Do I need more marketing?
One of the biggest challenges for rising DJ’s and producers is to find their place in the market and music industry, and consequently, playing in clubs, festivals, weddings, whatever your thing is. I’m not here today to tell you if your music is good enough to start playing in gigs. You need to have that acuity to understand if your music is worth playing in a good club sound system. Trust your ears!
So, how to get more DJ gigs? (more…)
Thank God (and thanks to my hard work, of course) I have been rewarded with a lot of luck in my artistic life. Apparently, the Universe has insisted on giving me the best fans in the world and there is nothing that makes me happier to know that I am an inspiration to some producers, DJ’s and other musicians out there. A lot of people ask me questions about my adventure in music production. Here are some of them:
Well, this won’t be a tutorial post but all of these questions made me think about what is essential and not essential in what we are doing here. For that reason, I want to share with you my opinion as a music producer on the million dollar question:
What is the hardware gear required to produce minimal/techno music? (more…)
I decided to write this post after seeing a TEDx Talks session from one of my favorite speakers that has inspired me throughout my artistic journey. His name is Simon Sinek and in this session he presents his speech called Start With Why – How Great Leaders Inspire Action (you can watch it on YouTube). If you are a music artist, I believe this post will help you how to get more fans and inspire other artists. (more…)
Yesterday, a friend of mine asked me: “Hey, can you give me some tips to grow a YouTube channel?” And that question inspired me to write today’s blog post. You see, all artists want more subscribers, likes, views and comments. We live in a time where numbers are very important to gain notoriety.
Since there are many people listening to music on YouTube, how to be discovered among millions of videos and how to grow a channel? (more…)
It’s been awhile since I shared the last blog post. In the last one I recorded 3 videos where I showed you 3 different ways to produce a bassline and since many producers out there loved the content and asked me for more videos like this, I decided to record another tutorial video. (more…)
In this blog post I won’t write too much because a video is worth a thousand words. In this case, there will be three videos. Each one explains a different way to make a bassline, like the ones I usually produce in my tracks. Creating this kind of basslines is a very simple process as you will see, even for an amateur producer. It’s simple but effective! So let’s get down to business. (more…)
Prague was one of those too short experiences that I wished it would last longer. It was the first time I played in Czech Republic and expectations were high. Prague has always been a city that fascinated me and I always wanted to visit, especially for its architectural beauty (and because of Triple X movie). (more…)
Damn, it was so good to wake up every morning with clear ideas about our next song, to sit in front of our computer, open our DAW and let things flow naturally. This would be perfect wouldn’t it? But it seems that often this is not the reality. In fact, we open our DAW and nothing comes out. (more…)
After nearly a year since the release of the album Beyond The Horizon with my friend Black Hertz, my first solo album Yin Yang is coming. (more…)
“Getting what you want is simple, but it’s not easy.” This quote by Mel Robbins represents one of my life mottos. In fact, if you think about it, it makes perfect sense. We all know what it takes to achieve our goals but in practice things are more complicated than they are in theory and sometimes we feel lost and many artists cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel because they give up. The truth is, if we don’t act we will always be in the same place. And this path was never easy. Simple but not easy. And it all boils down to one word – persistence. (more…)
