...so this entire full moon night was spent on reflection & taking a loooong look in the rear view mirror.
while djing & playing music is one thing, actually writing, performing, recording & producing it is something else altogether. 2016 marks my 25th year as a (professional) dj, but also as a producer, instrumentalist, remixer, writer and texter. same same - but different.
so i decided to scan all soundcloud for some of the stuff i was blessed enough to have layed my hands on over the... well... decades... and compiled this little playlist attached here.
only realizing now this particular soundtrack (which is still just a loose, rather incomplete excerpt of it all) basically covers all my adult life with its many stages and so its quite an emotional trip down memory lane for me. so many notes & bars, so much love (along with blood, sweat & tears) spent on creating & shaping them, so many beautiful people that helped making, mastering & distributing - not to mention all those lovely beings around the globe listening & following through all these years. and all the places all this made me go. be at, even. island man that i became.
am i supposed to feel old now? all i know is: i am thankful. because i don't make music, music makes me. thank you, music!
