As the holidays get started and people take a little break, we thought it would be great to get some networking started.  So please: introduce yourself to the Digital Music News community below!

Here are some things to include:

who are you?

where are you taking the music industry?

what are you writing, composing, or arranging?

what are you trying to figure out?

who are you looking to partner with?

what music are you listening to?

what’s great about the industry? what needs to be fixed?

Start a discussion, ask a question, answer a question, spark a debate.  Include as much detail as you’d like, including links, images, whatever.  Shameless plugs encouraged.

And Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hey everyone! I’m Paul from DMN. We’re trying to build a kick ass music industry news source, community, and overall resource. Thanks for being a part of it.

    What am I listening to? New xx is pretty cool, in fact, anything that samples Hall & Oates is automatically great. A little classic Phil Collins for November works. And kind of digging the Weeknd of late, though has anyone noticed he sounds eerily like Michael Jackson on his latest cut w/ Daft Punk?

    I’m Dr. David Jameson with Deskew Technologies, LLCs. We are the developers of Gig Performer (http://gigperformer.com) which is a new cross platform (Mac and Windows) audio plugin host designed explicitly for live performing musicians as well as live sound engineers. This application came about due to my (and others for that matter) dissatisfaction with other applications that try to address this area.

    I also play keyboards and the Eigenharp and tour internationally with The Security Project (http://securityprojectband.com) and indeed many of the features in Gig Performer were driven by actual on-stage experiences by myself and others.

    As for my musical tastes, I’m vaguely stuck in the 70s prog world and still mourning the death of my keyboard hero, Keith Emerson.

  4. Nicky Knight's thoughts..

    Hi Paul, I think DMN is a great information and gossip website about the business end of the recorded music scene (sometimes known as the recorded music racket…).

    About the things I like:

    I’m all about super catchy Pop songs with instant hooks and state-of-the-art
    dance music production elements.

    My top pop producers/writers and remixers are:
    Max Martin (no surprise there – a true master of the game)
    Mike Stock (great UK pop with surprise chord movements)
    Disco Pirates (fantastic remixes)
    Mike Chapman (yes he’s back in the game.. classic pop and pop/rock)

    Favorite musical instrument: Keyboards and Piano
    Favorite DAW: Cubase Pro 8.5 and Logic Pro X
    Currently using Cubase Pro 8.5

    Favorite music key: C Major/A Minor
    Trickiest music keys: F# and B

    This weeks favorite song: “For Me” by “Chloe Rose”

    Top choice cities for networking in the pop music recording business:
    Los Angeles and London (interchangeable order).

    The future of Recorded Pop:
    Internet Streaming i.e. Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube
    (and who knows what’s around the corner…)

    Hope:
    That iTunes keeps going…

    Creative:
    More songwriting and production teams being setup by music entrepreneurs
    focusing on creating the hits for a new generation.

    Money:
    There’s still millions to be made out of big global hits..

    The number 1 ingredient is the song (as corny as that might sound..)

      Nice but not brilliant!
      I would say bit arrogant with your HOBBYISTS not allowed policy.
      You sound like government or United Nations agency.

      Are you branch of ignorant Music Business World? – The mouth piece of Sir Lucian and his UMG suicide team?

    Hello World.

    I am Michael Goldsmith.

    My Artist Identity is: Mr.Mrg

    What I am bringing to the Industry? I don’t know. The Industry will pick and choose what they think I’m bringing regardless of what I say.

    I write Idea’s and my own philosophies.

    I write about life events, things I see and have experienced.

    I focus more on bringing Truth and Reality to the Music Industry. What’s going on in the world and around us.

    Currently, On a Massive scale I am releasing hundreds of sound samples and song samples all over Social Media, Sound Cloud, YouTube Ect. Leah McHenry claimed that this is ” Winging it ” But I would only see it that way If I was Immediately trying to profit. I produce currently Alternative Rap/Hip-Hop Sounds.

    I am 100% unprofessional and have no way to make professional sound.

    Everything I’ve released in recent history ( past 4 years ) has just been recorded with my Cell Phone Video and the Instrumentals were played on my 42″ Flat Screen Volume blasted at 90+ decibels.

    I don’t even like this business anymore because I’m not making any money on the retail side. They got my distribution locked out . The only way I get paid in this shit or at least compete is when I drive my syndicate deep into the financial sector of the ‘ MatriX Systems ‘ then I can prosper –:: I done did until it was done 700 Billion USD in less than 30 days. I don’t like this mess !
