"UK Rap – Streets of London" Spotify Playlist

UK Rap - Streets of London

Lately, the Brexit came true. However, the exact outcome of that situation will be revealed later when the European Union and the UK will realise that many things need to be adjusted and will then initiate further steps. During my master studies in London, we talked a lot of the Brexit at university and its negative influence on the creative industries – in particular, the music business in my case. Regardless of the politics and their actions, I hope that the music industry tries to minimise the damage caused by the Brexit all together so it will not influence the international touring and collaboration that significantly. While we observe the next steps of music industry executives and politicians, we can enjoy the hottest tracks of UK’s rap scene – all collected in my new Spotify playlist “UK Rap – Streets of London”. Have fun listening!

“Unique” Guitar Recording

Unique Guitar Recording

After we already had the drums and bass recorded on tape, we worked on the guitar parts for the new “Unique” song that is produced in the context of our current EP project. We ended up recording single notes for the verses along with rhythm tracks for the rest of the arrangement that give the song a decent funky “flavour”. For some of our followers, the recorded guitar material will be a nostalgic flashback to the late 70s/early 80s. As known for our production documentaries, we will briefly go through the signal flow and used equipment to achieve the sound you will finally hear on the record.

Vezt – Intellectual Property Monetization For Artists & Songwriters

Intellectual Property Monetization For Artists & Songwriters

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.
