Its been awhile since I updated my blog, for which I apologize. But there's no time like the present to get back to it!
I do have some interesting news....
Earlier this year I was contacted by Singer/Songwriter Paul Chiten after he heard (and actually bought from legitmix) my edit of his track "Can't Wait Another Minute" by Five Star....which became a massive international hit in 1986.
Since that time he and I have stayed in almost constant contact regarding other tracks he has done for other major artists....including a track he did himself for a major motion picture back in 1985.
The track (and film) in question is called "Transylvania 6-5000" and has become something of a cult classic.
Well, Paul asked me to re-edit the track in order to give it a bit more modern feel along with some additional spooky elements.
So very soon my remix of his track will be released worldwide on all Digital Music Platforms (iTunes, Amazon, etc) and will constitute my very first "major" release.
More info will be available soon!
Let me add this....
Over the last year or so I have had a couple of near-misses regarding commercial remix projects, not including my brush with the option of becoming a Hot Tracks remixer. Well this one is for certain and will be official very very soon!
I know I say this fairly regularly, but its TRUE. I owe much of my success and reputation to you guys, the DJ's and the music lovers! I do the work...you make it all worthwhile.
Over the last month, sales have increased to about double my previous monthly average. I am pleased to know that more and more people are checking out my tracks and choosing to purchase my first gen copies rather than DL MP3's off the net of dubious quality.
The vast majority of the tracks I edit are widely popular internationally, meant for working DJ's to use in their sets. I don't really do modern tracks and I don't do too many obscure releases...instead choosing to create DJ friendly versions of the tracks the audience knows. That may sound like a safe path to take, but its the niche I have decided to fill and it looks like it was a wise choice.
If you would like to purchase via Legitmix but are having issues with the iTunes requirement or the system in general, please contact me. I will be happy to assist.
