To my brothers and sisters, friends and listeners: As some of you may know, Ive been brainstorming and developing a solo project for about a year. As promised, today is the day I will publicly start this new chapter in my life. The project is called MASKARADE [an alternate spelling of masquerade, pronounced the same]. It’s exciting, it’s fun, and it represents me and all my interests. This project is about music and art, and a free flowing state of mind. As I’ve said before, Im floating down this river of creativity, making music I love, going wherever it takes me.
With that said, the first thing Im presenting is a remix I did for a current contest put on by Earmilk / Warner Bros for a new and awesome, quickly-rising female artist named Kimbra. The original song is called “Settle Down”, and the contest starts today! Initially I had planned on presenting my original material first, but when I started working on this remix a couple days ago, I fell in love with it, and my gut told me to start here. Im excited with the way it turned out, Ive always been a huge fan of female vocalists, and she is such a great singer.
Take this remix with a grain of salt, as there are no limitations with MASKARADE. For those of you wanting to hear my voice, you can be sure that I am definitely incorporating my vocals into most of the originals that I produce, and those originals are just around the corner!
Lastly, every Monday will be #MaskaradeMondays - I will be sharing something at the beginning of each week whether it be a set of art pieces I’ve created, a new song, live chats….who knows. So, look forward to that each Monday, and follow me on Twitter ( http://www.twitter.com/IAMMASKARADE ) to find out what’s coming each week!
Thanks to everybody that has supported me over the span of this 10+ year journey, there is no end in sight. Lets make this something special!
