When we finished the songwriting for the first song “Come Back” of our EP project, it was time to think about the next track, its genre and all other production- and songwriting-related topics. We decided to work on a soul/R&B song that should be performed with real instruments and stand out because of its “organic”, vibrant arrangement in contrast to the current, contemporary R&B music on the radio that features virtual instruments and is quite Autotune-heavy. We started tracking the drums, as we did for the rock track “Come Back” after I drafted a rhythm concept beforehand out of nowhere. Having a solid drum track as the basis for the songwriting, I was now searching for the best-fitting bass player to write a funky bass line on it collaboratively.Continue reading →
Recording music in the Internet age is not a lucrative business anymore. The nature of today’s popular streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music and TIDAL cause that most artists and songwriters beyond the world’s top 10 artists make very little money directly from their music.
Vezt is the first blockchain-based mobile app where music fans can acquire rights in their favourite songs. It claims to be a new reasonable income stream for creatives. Let us take a closer look at the app’s concept and find out what is it all about.

Bouncing 808s, hectic Hi-Hat and high-pitched snare rolls along with ambient synths, are frequently used in the contemporary urban music scene. In the time where Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B are very present on the top of the Billboard charts, at the Grammy Awards and major festivals, you recognise what stylistic and societal changes those genres went through the last decades. AlbrechtProductions created another song collection named “Trap Warriors” that is – as known for the blog – available on Spotify.Continue reading →

This time I went through my Spotify archive of playlists that were created years ago and found one that perfectly complements the current playlist collection. Although I did not smoke Hookah since years, I just retained the original playlist name not to change the playlist’s vibe and intention back in 2015. Since then, the playlist was filled with appropriate hot urban music. So, enjoy another Spotify playlist “handcrafted” by AlbrechtProductions!Continue reading →
In the winter, it is the best time to relax in your comfy living room and – occasionally – watch some TV. That is the reason why I want to recommend some of my favourite music documentaries to you this time. Music documentaries are not only interesting if you are into music but are also super inspiring and motivating if you are an upcoming artist, music producer or audio engineer. Regardless of whether the documentaries are about living or passed-away legends, hip-hop, soul or rock – all of those will make you want to be a part of the music’s history.
