Lack of posts… I know. Guilty as charged. I’ve been extremely busy with a bunch of new projects. For one, I finally finished school. I now have a B.A. in Computer Systems with a Minor in Recording Arts from CSUSB. I’ve also been producing a bunch of new tracks, both for Cold Busted, as well as a new label I’m working with called Journees Music – and one of their sublabels Shotcallers Music. I’ve also been writing a bit for an online magazine called Igloo Mag. Finally, I’ve been starting to book DJ gigs once more. I was recently featued on a KUCI FM radio program called Riders of the Plastic Groove. The following is a video stream archived of my set as well as an audio archive that can be streamed or downloaded from Mixcrate.
Blog posting has been light these past few months as I’ve been working to complete my debut album, Seven Wonders, which will be released on Cold Busted on 12.21.2011. More info to come…
The past couple of months have been extremely busy for me, which explains the low post frequency and the relative lack of tech oriented posts, which I know many of my visitors enjoy. I’m hoping to get back to some technology oriented posts shortly, but I’ve been working hard at producing my first full musical release, which I’m optimistic will get released within the next couple of months, and this has been taking up most of my available free time.
I would like to take a quick minute to post the following Beatport player which is tied to all of the releases I currently have out on BeatPort.
I am pleased to announce that I am currently working with Cold Busted records. I’ve known Derrick, aka DJ Vitamin D, for a number of years dating back to our days as DJs in the Los Angeles underground scene back in the day. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities being provided me on the music front by this wonderful label specialising in some very inspiring trip-hop, chill-out and downtempo music.
I am currently releasing music under the name Mojo Rising. Most recently I have a track entitled Boom Boom Martini which was released on the Stone Cold Busted 2 compilation, which features 21 tracks from the diverse and talented roster of Cold Busted artists. Additionally, I was invited to record a DJ mix of all of the tracks and this is also now available on Beatport along with the individual tracks. CDs have been pressed and these will also be available for purchase within the coming weeks at Amazon, among other online outlets.
I am also currently working on several tracks for an upcoming release of all original Mojo Rising material, which will feature a diverse array of electronic styles. More on that will be announced down the road. Having said that, I am pleased to quickly mention that I have currently been demoing a mastering plugin called Ozone 4, from Izotope, and I am very impressed with the results so far.
On the tech side of things, not a whole lot to report. The music opportunities that I have been given are my current priority, so future development work on the applications side are on standby for the time being.
