Story

This track is very special to me. Not just because of the sound – which I worked very hard on – but because of the circumstances that inspired it’s creation.

In early 2017, I made a critical paradigm shift from exclusively pursuing the path of a producer to pursuing that of an artist. That shift brought a significant change to the way I compose music. I had just completed the EP “A Child Of The 80’s Vol. 1” and was set to begin a whole new chapter in my music career.

Then, my computer suffered a catastrophic hard drive failure. Unfortunately, I had not been diligent in backing up my files so I lost about 3 years worth of work – including all of the files from that EP. I was devastated. I was angry with myself for being careless and I was unsure of what my next move would be. One of the things that kept me from falling into despair was the fact that I was in the best creative space that I’ve been in for at least 15 years. I felt like I was on fire musically. If I had to start over from scratch, I was in the right condition to do it.

So… I purchased a new computer, updated my music software (something I had been putting off until the completion of the EP), and started over. I was feeling very low emotionally, but I decided that while I was at the bottom, I would dance while I was there.

This is the first track I created…

p.s. I was ultimately able to recover some of my files, so “A Child of The 80’s Vol. 1” will be released in early 2018!
