New studio!

Not only my new single Binary Star is out this week, but I also have another great news: I have finally finished a new studio!

There is a lot of work yet to come, right now it’s basically an empty room with minimum acoustic treatment, but most importantly the room itself has been built with music production in mind so I finally have a dedicated space for my little music experiments. So excited about it!

Here are a few pictures I took over the last months to highlight the construction progression:

The result so far November 2019, the beginning: bare concrete with no electricity or anything. Not even the walls June 2020. Because of the More June. We installed electricity, installed soundproofing, levelled the floor, built a niche for the heater under the window, put heat insulation and soundproofing under the ceiling July. We plastered and levelled the walls, installed a window sill, installed outlets — a total of 20 sockets in the room. The outlets designed for monitor speakers are powered by special acoustic cables August. Installed finishing flooring materials (LVT), painted the walls, finished electric, hung a suspended ceiling, installed light fixtures October, the final. Moved things and set up a minimal viable workspace All stages in one picture

And don’t forget to check out Binary Star which is out now on JOOF Recordings and available on Beatport and Spotify.

Critique as a motivation to grow

We at JOOF have a little chatroom where we discuss and give our opinions on the incoming demos, and that is no exception to the tracks coming our own A&Rs.

So I have submitted a track which had an amazing (as I thought) acid line in the climax, and Adam who is very pedantic when it comes to 303 said: “Yeah the track is awesome and all, but your acid sounds like shit, mate”.

He surely said that in a more polite way telling me something about 18db LPF and richness of the character which I know nothing about, but one thing was clear to me: I’ve got to figure out how to improve my 303’s.

So I did. In fact, I loved that new improved acid sound so much, so one morning I woke up and completely overhauled the main lead I had in my previous track that I’ve signed a few days before (which was about to be sent to the distributor), and updated it with a new 303 sound. Kudos to Adam!

That previous track was Binary Star, and this is how it got its main acid lead that you can hear in the track now:

Binary Star will be released on November 2, and now available for pre-save on Spotify:

Optimistic look into the future

Three years ago I’ve written a post titled “Thirty is better”, thinking out loud that life is getting better over the course of time especially when you have your thing.

To me, that thing is music. This is what I live and breathe. And this year, which shocked the music industry and the whole world, was a real test of my own belief.

The gigs have been postponed, the industry is unknown when it will recover, the future is uncertain. Would that seem like a sign to stop making music?

Weirdly enough, I made exactly the opposite conclusion and once again made sure that I chose the right thing for me. After all, when you love what you do, it gives you the strength and desire to move forward no matter what. I am sure that everything will be only better from now on.

If you want to personally impact my uneasy journey in a meaningful way, consider becoming a patron, that would be an amazing birthday present to me.

Happy Birthday to me!

Binary Star preview

I’ve been releasing music for more than 8 years now, but I still get so excited (and even nervous!) every time I introduce you a new track. Today is no exception!

This is “Binary Star”. Just like a binary star system in our Universe where two stars orbiting around a common centre, the title of this track hints at a few different musical genres that I’ve ultimately combined together, creating and sculpting something entirely new to me:

Coming out soon on JOOF Recordings. What do you think about this sound?
