My last blog post was roughly 10 years ago, so I figured I’d add an update and hopefully, continue to share news and music more often. In a nutshell, not much has changed over the past ten years. I still enjoy creating electronic music and publish to a variery of platforms frequently.
My musical style has changed considerably from the high-speed, high-energy Trance bangers from the late 90s to mid-2000s. I now primarily create Synthwave and Ambient inspired music with the occasional Progressive and Drum n Bass track.
Winter has advanced quickly and entrenched itself deeply here in Johannesburg, however, the icy conditions have provided some fresh inspiration. This month sees the official digital release of Vaughan Phillips – Flatlined 2011 Re-Load which also features remixes by Arkett Spyndl and myself. There are also a few new tracks in the pipeline, of which, a collaborative effort with pianist Michelle Freeman is nearing completion.
Vaughan Phillips – Flatlined 20011 Re-Load
Multitude music presents Vaughan Phillips – Flatlined 2011 Re-Load featuring remixes by Arkett Spyndl and Hugh Campbell. Flatlined 2011 Re-Load is now available from JunoDownload, trackitdown, Ovi Music, Armada and more.
After almost a year of inactivity, I have finally completed work on a new track. “Hypernova”. Much has happened during my musical absence. A change in career, new relationships, new friends and a new home to name but a few life-changing events, all of which have inspired a new phase of enlightenment and personal growth as a person and as an artist.
Hypernova is the resulting explosion of these new energies and in it’s wake, more projects will follow. The track is available as a free download from my website at http://www.tamusic.co.nr/downloads .
More projects in the pipeline include 2 new remixes of Vaughan Phillips’ “Flatlined” and “Into the light” as well as a collaboration with the talented Michelle Freeman a.k.a The Pianist. Details on these and other projects will be available in my next update.
Don’t forget, you can purchase my artist album, “The Comedown Machine” from your favourite download stores now!
Thundering kick drums, bizarre glitchy-ness and the return of my creepy electronic vocals! Monolith is my new track falling somewhere in the great messy genre pool of IDM, Industrial, Electro and even tribal (who needs genre’s anyway?)
Remixes, hell, I never seem to stop doing those but sometimes they yield their rewards. I recently entered the Emendy remix competition (Emendy is a music colledge and store stocking equipment for music and post production). I won the competition and received my prize this week – tutorial DVDs on Audio mastering. So now, hopefully, I can brush up on those skills and your ears will stop bleeding!
That’s it for now, Hope you all had a great weekend!
