New year, new music?

As you may know 2018 was a year of disasters for me. Not only was I hospitalised with having had a heart attack, I still suffer from cardiomyopathy. But I am recovering and almost back to form. But by far the worst thing happened in September when my music harddrive, yes the one with all my instruments and my music went down. Sure I was backing up most of the files,and the instruments could be restored. But what I didn’t know , was that the backup was corrupted too.

I set all my hopes in a professional recovery service, prepared to shell out some serious money to get it all back, but all my hopes failed. Yep. Almost all the production files of my tracks since 2013 are lost. Thank god, only two current, unreleased tracks were lost. The tracks up to 2016 are on an old PC I will copy some time in the future. Some are backed up on blend.io. And I’m currently downloading them. So, until December I was on a forced production hiatus, as I had only very basic tools to work with, and underwent some medical rehab treatment.

But once black Friday came the Itch was back. I replaced my Maschine MK1 with an MK3 and stocked up on some synth. You can never have enough plugins …

So I’m back to making music but for now searching a theme for the next album. I’m sure the spark will come soon and I’ll be back on some late night sessions fiddling over some Bihar beat … Until then I wish all of you a very good start into 2019 and health for you and your hard drives.

PS: I am now backing up daily on a separate NAS harddrive and checking the backup integrity also daily.

The deadline has passed. Another milestone  in my humble career as a DIY musician is approaching the finish line. I reviewed all of the submitted remixes and have picked Andy as the Grand Prize Winner receiving Neutron (Standard) by Izotope and ROLI’s Equator. Congratulations!

The runner-ups are Millennium Mike and Chiapexx who will also be featured on the upcoming release. Thanks to everyone who collaborated with me, Check out their fresh remixes below:

The first prize goes to the first one to enter the remix competition. Just a coincidence? Not really. Andy is a real contender for the win every time. I liked how he took the themes and meshed them up just the right way. Thanks, Bro. Be sure to follow him on social. Links are found in his blend account.

Though I felt Andy’s was the most innovative of the remixes, they were all really great. So Enjoy them all. Thanks to both of you for putting in the time and creativity. Very much appreciated. Be sure to follow them on social as well. (see blend account for details.)
