It’s easy to find some superstar on YouTube and use their videos in these posts. Their videos are perfectly produced and the track lists are usually on point. It is much harder on the other hand to find videos of “locals”. If I could, I would start off every Friday with some local love. So please feel free to send me your mixes. YouTube, Facebook, Soundcloud, Vimeo.. I’ll check it all out.

This week take a listen to Lunar Vision. Accurate mixing, awesome flow and always an interesting track list. Show him some deserved love! Cheers RDMN

I’ve mentioned the new streaming platform Choon before. It has potential to be a game changer, but even if not, it’s interesting to see how this whole thing develops. They’re basing the payment system on their own currency or voucher called “Notes” which then can be exchanged for Etherium. When and how well all this is going to work is a question I’m not currently worrying about. I’m more interested in the mechanics of the website and I try to be a good beta user by commenting on issues I encounter. Check out Choon.co for more info on all that.

I’m currently uploading my entire back catalog of tracks and I decided to dress up each one in new cover art exclusively for Choon. Here are the first 4 tracks:

Check out My Choon Profile and listen to some of the Radman Classics. I’m going to continue uploading until I feel like I’m fully represented on that streaming portal.

I’m hoping to see some way to bring a choon community together at some point. A Facebook group could be a solution but I think it would be way cooler to be able to collaborate on the Choon website itself. Maybe someone from Choon is listening πŸ˜‰

Cheers, RDMN

Why is Friday the best day of the week? Picture this: Being a free person and living your life is awesome, but it doesn’t compare to the first day of freedom after being locked up over the weekend for doing some dumb shit… That’s why Friday is the best: Freedom for a few days and time to let go of the past week… and if you can’t follow me, maybe you need to go do some dumb shit πŸ™‚

And no one can get your weekend groove started like the legend himself, Carl Cox. I have to admit, being so fond of Daft Punk, he had me at that first track. It really didn’t matter at that point what the rest of the mix was about, I decided right there and then that I’m gonna post it.. I put my faith into the Cox πŸ˜‰ as should you.

cheers RDMN

I wanted to wait a little bit before paying homage to Tim. 28 is way to young.

I want to dedicate this Finally Friday post to him. I hope his case creates awareness for the mental struggles people face.

As mainstream as he became and as underground as I like to believe I am, his track Levels was game changing to me.

Please enjoy this live set. It’s just one of so many out there to check out.

cheers and r.i.p.

There it is again.. Friday! We keep making it πŸ™‚
This time I have another soundcloud clip for you guys. This is a very special friend of mine from my old music days in the wild wild west. Eve Falcon, awesome DJ, hot as hell and wife of Jason Blum, one half of the live electronic act Deepsky from back in the day. So many memories and connections have been created in my life after meeting Jason and Scott from Deepsky. Eve is one of them. She has such a mature sound and scratches my progressive/deep house itch in just the right way.

Alright people, I am back from a long but not long enough trip from Berlin. It has been a crazy couple of last weeks and I’ve been looking for something different, a bit more chilled out. I stumbled over the Electro Swing Crew, hailing from Hamburg, Germany.

I’ve had the pleasure of being to a Parov Stelar live show once and it was totally awesome. Like listening to house music at a festival but everyone is swing dancing and dressed up. Super awesome! Anyways check out this live set and possibly allow a new genre into your repertoire if you aren’t aware of this, yet.

Curious to see what else they’ll release in the future.

cheers RDMN

I actually never really paid attention to Twitter much in the past. I had my account linked to all my other social media stuff to “automatically” fill it with content, but I wasn’t really active on my own in the beginning.

A few months ago I started to get more active, in fact I just posted tweet number 3000 last week. The number climbed pretty fast once I actively got involved in conversations about music, software, production and of course Donald Trump. In the beginning I had a personal policy of not openly getting involved in politics, but some things I just can’t be quiet about and I get sucked into the melee.

 

Tweeting about music

I’ve had a few music related interactions that make all this tweeting worth it to me. Here are a couple of examples.

After looking at Nexus for weeks and reading horror stories about their customer service I just really welcomed the friendliness of the Lethal Audio team… so now I use Lethal in my arsenal instead of Nexus.

Not only is it helpful to be able to have quick conversations with the support teams, but it’s also instantly gratifying to have discussions with globe-trotting DJs and producers such as Gareth Emery. The following actually led to me entering the beta testing of a new streaming platform called choon.

Tweeting about politics

Unfortunately it’s the political interactions that get more response it seems. I’m already trying to push and share anything musical that relates to me or my genres. I wish some of the music related posts would get as much attention as the following examples, though.

41 likes, 3500 impressions

169 likes, 17 conversations, 5205 Impressions

I’m going to keep voicing my opinion about anything I feel like, but how does this affect the direction of this social media channel in terms of my music? Should artists stay out of politics? Or should they at least use separate accounts? I noticed that there are a lot of artists I follow who don’t keep quiet. Here is FeedMe who is being very vocal about the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida:

I think the rules may have changed.

Let me know if you have another opinion.

cheers,
Thomas

I’m really curious about something I’m about to test out. It’s this new streaming portal for musicians called choon. Designed to have its own payment ecosystem the entire thing is powered by the Etherium blockchain. Check out their website if you haven’t googles it already:

https://www.choon.co/

Some familiar faces are involved: Gareth Emery, Ashley Wallbridge and Bjorn Niklas, who I still remember from the Torque days at Ruby Skye in San Francisco.

This is one of the most interesting things in digital music distribution and streaming I’ve heard of in a long time and I can’t wait to see its mechanics work in a live environment.

So when I received a beta invite I just had to upload a couple of tracks to try it out. They had to be brand new, since nothing published or under contract is eligible. So I hurried and polished up my two latest projects.
The first one called “Stranger” is sort of a downtempo breaks track that I made recently. I like to make all kinds of music and enjoy each break away from house music πŸ™‚

 

The second track called “Neon Dark” sounds more like something people may be used to hearing from me. It’s been in the works for a while and after adding a punch of different things I decided to strip it back down to the current version. It’s my personal underground party soundtrack πŸ™‚

For now I have to say that choon came along at a very convenient time, because I was looking for a solid outlet and got a bit tired of the entire label scene. I have high hopes for this platform and I’m keeping a close eye on its development. It could possibly become the kind of outlet for my music I’ve been looking for lately!

I’m stayin tuned πŸ™‚

cheers
