So what's happening in Diskoland, you may ask?
Not much, at the moment. I'm in between homes right now, with my recording equipment packed up. I'm taking some "down time" to think about next steps. I have three albums and an EP of demos hanging out there, and another two EPs "sketched" out. What I'm realizing though is that I really have to find a studio to record the "real" versions of these songs. The home-recorded vocals lack the professionalism and punch that these songs rightfully deserve. So there's that.
The other side of the coin is that I want to work with a producer (or producers) who can take these songs and make them as polished as they deserve to be. If the money was there, I'd pay - and pay well. But the money isn't there, and who knows if it will be there any time soon.
So there you have it.
On a side note, the shop is temporarily closed, as my product is also in storage.
It's probably going to be a little tumbleweed-y around these parts for the forseeable future. If you're a producer interested in collaborating, feel free to send me an email. If you'd like to book me as a DJ, drop me a line. (You can check out some sample DJ sets HERE and HERE.) And if you happen to have a bunch of cash that you don't know what to do with, I'd be more than happy to take it off your hands and put it to good use creating some introspective electro-pop music.
In the meantime, in my other life I'm a not-for-profit fundraising, marketing, and administrative consultant. You can check out what I do in that world HERE. (I'm currently accepting new clients, too, so spread the word.)
Thanks to those of you who have expressed interest in my work and who have sent good wishes - it's greatly appreciated.
I look forward to getting new tunes out sometime in the future. Until then, all my best to you....
