Here’s an update on what I’ve been up to for the past few months; Continue reading
Woooooooooow….I just realised that I haven’t blogged about anything since January! Trust me though, it’s not for the lack of things happening…
Me and Profeta have launched the video about a month ago, and so far, so good! It looks great, better than I expected! With the right promotion, we’re positive that it will go viral anytime soon! It will be posted untill February on websites such as Alofokemusic.net and Tedilumusic.com, which are very popular Dembow websites in DR. We are now negociating to have the song play on Dominican radio stations as well as the video played on television channels. I have all my hopes up for this video! I can’t wait to see it gain the amount of views it deserves! I’m thankful for everybody who participated in the making of it, as well as for the people that have been liking and sharing it so far! PILA DE GRACIAS A TODOS!!
I came back from Dominican Republic about a month ago…and once again, it was a life changing experience.
I was staying by Mr Profeta‘s house in East Santo Domingo. I got to discover what life is really like in that country, and I simply loved it!
For the past 2 months I have been extremely busy working on the project with Mr.Profeta, and now the first single is finally out; Controlando. The other songs from the project are in the process of being completed. I’m very proud of the work we have done so far. I have very high hopes for this collaboration. I’m flying to Santo Domingo to meet up with Profeta tomorrow morning. I’ll be staying there for two weeks, doing promo, videoshoots and whatever is necessary to get our stuff heard. I will do my best to capture images and document this experience as much as possible. This is my first time going to Dominican Republic on business, and I hope it won’t be the last. Me and Profeta have a million things to discuss and make happen in these two weeks. I’m praying for the best. I’m working the night shift Today, so I will be heading to the airport right after work to get there around 7h45am. I have 3 flights to catch, stopping in New York and Miami before landing in Santo Domingo, around 9pm.
It’s been a while since my last entry due to the amount of things I was dealing with. Aside from work, fatherhood and other activities, I was also putting a lot of time in the making of Dembow Revolution, as well as my 2nd project with KT. However, now that all the songs are in the post-production phase, I can focus more on posting updates and spreading the word. Like I said, I’m bringing the necessary to keep people tuned in on my activities down there. Make sure to watch, like, share, and comment on the video for the single Controlando, and be on the look out for more news coming soon!
For the past few weeks I’ve been working hard on my two upcoming projects; the one with Mr. Profeta (Dembow Music), and the on with K.T. The Beatboy (Hip Hop). I’ve been writing a lot of songs, studying tracks and modifying them when necessary, and I’ve been communicating a lot with Profeta as well.
Also, me and Profeta are now starting to build a studio in Santo Domingo. We already have 2 producers that will work for us. It’s almost up and running now, he just needs to get a bit more equipement and we’ll be good to go! We’re both very excited about this, as it will draw more attention to what we do, and should start generating income in no time. The first step will be to finalize our current project and release it. I’m now planning to go spend 2 weeks over there after the release. Can’t wait!
The Hip Hop project with KT, so far, sounds incredible, and as we keep working on it, it keeps sounding better and better. With the proper push, I am convinced that this will be my ticket in the big league! After spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars in different promotion tools (among 90% of which were almost completely ineffective), I now know exactly where to put my money. Consequently, I think this project will get good exposure and a massive buzz in a relatively short amount of time. So much for all the cash I basically threw out the window….but hey, you live and you learn. It takes hardwork and perseverance to get somewhere in this business, and I’m sure I have provided more than enough of both!
God willing, stardom shouldn’t be to far away now, I still believe, and I’ll never quit….
This week I went to Seratone Studios to record a “skeleton” of my upcoming project. I was able to lay a first version of all the songs in about 2 hours, along with Simon Petraki and of course KT The Beatboy. Good times as always. As an artist, the fun part of the music business in my opinion is always the creative one. I love nothing more than watching my song ideas come to life in the studio. So far, I am extremely confident in this project. After having acquired a deeper understanding of the present music industry, I can safely say that I am coming out with something fresh, but also relevant. Me and KT have put together some songs that follow the tendency of today’s popular music, but that will still remain original in their sound and topics. I am very excited to see this project come to life. I will be back in the studio this week to work on it some more.
