Still Brewing & DSOH

cropped-zen01.jpgSince my last post, I’ve been trying to get a grip on how best to approach the next part of my track, Simply Deep. Seeing that I was (and still am) quite pleased with the first part, I want to make sure that the transition is smooth and that everything sounds good. I am still trying to learn the ropes of House music, but I can honestly say that I am enjoying it, bit by bit. No one said the journey was going to be easy and I put myself on the path. Only thing for me to do is walk it.

On another note, I decided to take a listen to Deeper Shades of House (DSOH). I figured that I needed me some reference material, just to understand how House music is made and the many elements that are involved in making a track. Boy, did I find a treasure trove. The most recent mix from DSOH took me on a trip back in time. I began thinking about Fresh Prince and Shaft for some reason. Not sure why, but it just happened. Still, if a mix can do that for me, it’s definitely worth a listen.

I have to hand it to the DJ for such an amazing collection and show. It’s truly a library of house music with some seriously deeper shades. If you’re a fan of House music, check it out!

Simply Deep & Twitter?

Since my last post, I have been contemplating turning Simply Deep into an EP. I spent a bit of time listening to the track I worked on and found that the part near the end would be a beautiful transition into another song. Now there’s an idea! So, instead of making separate tracks, I can make one continuous track with song transitions.

In the past, I’ve listened to a great deal of house music mixes. Some mixes are an hour long, but the transitions are so seamless. I figured, I could do the same thing with Simply Deep. Take a page out of the books of some of the greats out there and apply it. Sure makes work easier for me later on if I decide to split the track into smaller ones.

On another topic: Twitter. Now, I don’t really make much use of social media, but seeing that I want to get my work out into the open, I figured I’d give Twitter a shot. Feel free to follow me on the network if you wish:

Look forward to an update on my progress with Simply Deep in the near future. Hoping that my plan for the next song works out.

Cheers!

Most people blog every day or other day. Me? I can’t say I am that active in my blogging. However, when I have something to share, I would jump on here and add to my collection of already written entries.

So, today I was listening to someone discuss Deep House music. Next thing I know, I find myself going on a tangent! The video becomes a thing of the past, for a while anyway, and I end up going the distance with my attempt.

I am a fan of House Music. I like the elements in the music. This track, Simply Deep, is my attempt at making a Deep House track. To me, it sounds pretty good, but I am sure it will need some improvements.

For a while now, I have been trying to discover my style for making electronic music. I have to say that I’ve finally found it.
