Happy Monday everyone!
First off, I would really like to thank everyone who has taken the time to read what I write and to those of you that have given me insight/advice. The response I have gotten lately is amazing and I’m so lucky and happy to have this platform I created where I can channel my creative energy.
I’ve locked in some of my favorite artists for interviews and honestly, I’m unbelievably stoked! I can’t really tell you who they are but just know that these artists are people I really look up to and I can’t wait to find out more about them and share that with you! These past few weeks for me have been some of the most trying times but at the same time it has really opened my eyes! I’m beginning to realize I can actually do this if I set my mind to it and continue with my vision.
That being said, I want to do this right and I will need help from others for sure haha. I also need to tend to my personal life and focus on acquiring a job since I’ve been “funemployed” the last month. This is the longest time I’ve gone without work since I was 16, so I feel really weird and need to really zero in and nail down these marketing, admin and restaurant manager interviews I have coming up.
So, I’m gonna take a break for at least a week or so, maybe I’ll post a thing or two… but I also want to give you guys room to breathe. I hate feeling like I’m spamming, which in a sense I am haha. So I’d like to just chill out…
Thank you to all those that came to check out Tim Baresko (check out the interview I did with him via the link!), Ney x Miss Mak and Wei over the weekend at Halcyon. It was such a good set and an awesome night.
Alright SO… today I’m happy to announce the beginning of a new project I am doing with one of my best friends, Corey Reith! He’s been helping me learn how to DJ the last few weeks.
Here’s the link for my first ever recorded mix < https://soundcloud.com/christianreciknows/the-essence-of-house-v1-1 > it was the first time I ever DJ’d for this long so I am choosing to release this as is with mistakes and all!
Corey and I have been hanging out a lot lately and eventually we concocted this idea to do this new project together. I mean c’mon, who wouldn’t want to collaborate on a project with their best friend? This is what we love and it’s such an awesome experience being able to start this from the ground up.
Every Monday we will release a 20-25 minute mix featuring tracks that we would like to show you! Here’s what we came up with for our first premiere out of the blue. Overall, I really enjoyed what we ended up with despite the one 128 kbps track we put in there, but we really wanted to show you that track haha!
Please give us your constructive criticism!
I’ve found a few transition issues, but hey mistakes help you grow! At least you can tell we were trying haha.
We are going to continue to practice and work towards throwing some dope sets down for you guys! We’d like to do this live for you too. Maybe say, Dolores Park? The beach? After parties? We hope to get good enough by DirtyBird Campout so we can play some renegades ;).
We told a story through the tracks we put in this mix via their lyrics or track titles, see if you can figure it out!
Stay tuned for more from our project called “Aries“!
It has been SUCH a pleasure being able to pursue my passions in life and I truly couldn’t have done this without the support from all of you.
Feel free to contact me in the future for any work you’d like to do with me! Simply contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss things.
Thank you so much and I hope all of you are doing well!
