The progress of my new album "i-Dentity" is going very well.
All parts of participating artists have been received and mixed, so tonight I am critically going to listen to the current mix of the entire album.
If I am not happy with it, there's still another week to make adjustments before sending the tracks to Wouter Bessels, who is going to do the mastering.
1. Destination: Berlin - Part 1
2. Destination: Berlin - Part 2 (featuring Bill Fox)
3. Destination: Berlin - Part 3
4. i-Dentity (featuring guest musicians, t.b.a.)
Besides some great guitar parts by Bill Fox on the second track of the album, the final piece on the album contains some very surprising collaborations by artists who will be announced within a week.
Two of these artist will participate with my performance at the E-Day Festival in Oirschot, April 16th, when the new album will be released! Details can be found on http://e-day.groove.nl
This day there is also going to be released an E-Day sampler by Groove Unlimited, containing one of my unreleased tracks.
The album will be released on my newly established record label, Deserted Island Music.
The music which you can't without when getting stuck on a deserted island.
It is our purpose to release the perfect music for this situation, with a frequency of 2 to 4 releases in a year.
Our emphasis will be focused on electronic music, devided into several sub-styles, which can be recognised easily by the color of the artwork.
We have decided to use costs saving packaging (cardboard sleeves) to offer our high quality products for the best possible price to our customers.
Where a lot of independent labels and artists choose to distribute home made cd-r releases nowadays, we want to make the difference by only releasing factory pressed compact discs.
Our purpose is by means of limited editions (500 copies per release) not necessarily to become a large label, but to gain recognisability and getting well-acclaimed, by releasing several releases per year.
At the moment I am working on the label website, which should be online before the release of "i-Dentity": www.desertedislandmusic.nl
Besides the label website there should also be a new website online containing everything about my musical activities: www.exhibitionofdreams.com
I am nominated in the category "Best International Artist" at the annual Schallwelle Preisverleihung.
This year the (sold out) ceremony takes place in the planetarium of Bochum, March 12th.
Information and the complete list of nominees can be found on www.schallwelle-preis.de.
This day there will be given away a limited number of promotional discs, containing excerpts from my new album!
