I am still new to releasing and using Soundcloud as distributor and Bandcamp as an album store, so in December for my birthday present I will release the songs on other platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, YouTube Music and others. I am finding a lot of things as I go. You can listen the whole album on Soundcloud and Bandcamp from today.

This album literally came out of the blue while I was riding a high working on an old school breakbeat remix of Ferry Corsten - Yes Man. I really hoped that the remix had a chance to get in top 3 in the armada remix competition, but it didn't. First two songs were ''insert'' generic ''uplifting'' trance remixes and the other song that landed in top 3 was actually a much better breakbeat remix than my version.


After the winner announcement I felt a bit down for even getting my hopes up, so I buckled down and made few more songs. Half of the album was made in the last month and apart from 2 of the songs, the other 11 are from this year. I was actually hoping to release this album around this time next year, but a DJ reached out to me saying ''Dark Clouds'' was one of the best breaks he heard in a while. Funny how even a little encouragement can make you fell much better after loosing a competition. And you guys have been also quite supportive so that's when I knew I need to just push the album immediately.

some tunes got nice vibe, if they were of a better quality, could be released somewhere like Monstercat. some cheap percussive sounds and muddy processing makes it hard to enjoy tho

God I wish I could release a bunch of songs on a big label like Monstercat, but I am not there yet. According to labels feedback there is something going on, but I am not quite there. Best I can do is keep at it, until it gets better and upload music in the meantime so I can gather some attention.

you can get there, it's not a rocket science exactly. use reference tracks mate, A LOT. constant ABs tests help analyze what's good about the songs that are released on big labels, the samples used, the processing, the composition etc.

So tomorrow the album is coming on most major platforms, so I wanted to do something special.

For the preview of the album I have sped a few of the songs, so I decide to speed a few songs and make some mashups.

I had spend the last two weekends drafting ideas and came up with 5 mashups. Unfortunately probably one of the better ones was taken down (DJ Recharge vs York feat. Oly - Eye Of The Storm vs Everything Changes (Mashup)) which is not optimal, but hey there is 4 left. I went for a bit more trance-y sound in the mashups.
