Get your “Deep” fix. The monthly event returns to Tota on Saturday September 1 at 10:00 PM, for another all-night celebration of real underground music: deep house and deep techno. Music will be provided by…
I have posted numerous original productions to SoundCloud.
The three tracks I presently have on line have been played 325 times, with 8 comments posted. That means less than one in every 40 people will share their opinion with an unsigned, hard-working music creator who offers his music up for nothing.
My latest submission, Andromeda has had 61 plays and has been “favorited” 5 times. That suggests that one in every 12 people listening to the track think it’s interesting enough to put into their favorites. But after about 2 months, it has not received a single comment. Not one bit of constructive or destructive criticism, no hate mail, no attaboys … nothing.
IS THIS THING ON???
I thought the whole point of SoundCloud and its “timed comment” mechanism is to allow producers to receive important feedback about works in progress. It has turned into a YouTube for music, a free music-on-demand service with a particularly great selection of underground beats. The listeners are consumers who expect to get music for free and offer nothing in exchange for the hard, thankless work of underground producers.
There’s something for everyone this Sunday night at Nocturne!
As a welcome to the world for the Frisky Biscuit story, this is a deep-n-dirty all-night-dance-party! Too long has it been since there was a night of such supreme sound mixology, a bit of something for everyone! With two rooms and big sound, be prepared for a rawkus good time.
The case has wrapped up, and now the jury must deliberate. On what, exactly? Read up, find out, and form your own opinions about whether this is a tragic case of stolen, priceless intellectual property, or if we should liken Apple and Samsung to a couple of playground bullies trying to lay a beating on the other to get attention and establish dominance.
This is strongly recommended reading if you have any lingering questions about the exact nature of the case. It is impartial, and very well written, in layman’s (but not idiot’s) terms.
The recordings from last weekend’s wildly successful event Some Like it Deep in Toronto are here. Have a listen to these three great online DJ mixes featuring deep house and deep techno from Boots Boogie, v0ins and E.R.A!
