Smily’s featured Track

Helloooo all you music loving people!💕

It has been a while since my last article and I’m excited to write and share some new goodies with you all. 😊

Let me introduce you to my friend Ashni who already has had some top of the chart hits in Europe and is a bit newer in the USA market.

She is a beautiful soul, a fun and kind-hearted person. Gorgeous inside and out. She has a great passion for her music and I feel connected to her through that passion for music.

I’m excited to share her new track with you all. First let’s let her talk a bit about the track!

About the track by the artist

This track was written and produced by Mr.Z. who previously wrote for me, so we decided to join forces and do a song together.  This is how CrazyThings was born.

For me personally this is the first track I have done in this genre. This track gives me such a happy heart and positive energy.

It provides me with a sense of freedom and being a real woman, while singing and dancing to it. It’s the time you can completely let go!

This track gives me the feeling that anything is possible!🎶💕😍

About the track by Smily

The more I watch the video and listen to the track the more it makes me smile. Everyone involved in this was SO happy while they made this track. That really counts for something with me deep in my heart. ❤

It is a fun and upbeat track, sure to get you dancing no matter what genre of music you are into.

My tastes have a wide range from underground and obscure to dreamy floaty trance and happy progressive to mainstream.

I feel this particular track has the potential of becoming very big in the mainstream market.  You can tell that everyone involved in this has a great love for what they do and that everyone of the people that were involved with this track clearly has a passion for music and doesn’t that deserve our full support?

So all you twitterfam that love music and like reading my blog, do your thing!

Smily’s featured Remix

Hello all you beautiful souls!🌈😊🎶✌

Today I’d like to introduce you to a lovely Virtual Self remix made by Sine Wave ( @arismakesmusic ) I was introduced to Aris mixes by my friend Chez ( @astateofchez ) with a check this guy out I think you’ll like his music and she knows me well! I like Aris unique sound all his own on all his music. This particular remix I am featuring is the one I like best so far! I look forward to all future work of Aris and look forward to help support him 😊

Let’s give him a chance to introduce himself and talk a bit about his music!

A bit about the Artist by the Artist

I grew up in a very musical family. My mother and grandfather are both gifted musicians. Both of them were grade school music teachers in Soviet Armenia, where I was born. When we moved to the United States in 1988, music was one of the few things our family could hold on to from our past. I grew up listening to all sorts of world music, and in my teens, found heavy metal, which eventually led me to electronic music in my college years. I was amazed at the stuff people like Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Squarepusher were putting out. So I downloaded a free tracking software in 2001 (because recording gear was so expensive at the time) and started my journey in music making. The rest, as they say, is history.

A bit about the mix by the Artist

I fell in love with ‘a.i.ngel’ immediately. Virtual Self did a beautiful job bringing up nostalgic memories of an era of electronic music that is now lost in time, buried deep in an internet that no longer exists. And when I started to listen to remixes of this song, they all sort of sounded the same to me. So I figured I try and change it up a bit. I wanted this mix to gallop at a completely different pace than the original. I also wanted the mix to sound like it was being played by a rock band in a galactic circus, with the focal point of this mix being the outro of the original.

A bit about the remix by Smily

Well there isn’t much more I can say I think. The description Aris uses of his mix is beautifully worded. I personally enjoy how Aris has managed to have a unique sound that’s all his own, without allowing too much outside influence. Sticking to his gut in music and sound and following his heart. Keep up the great work!

Please follow him on Twitter @arismakesmusic and listen to his mix below. Remember how much it means to artists for you to listen to, share and tell them how much you like their music.

As always much love,

Smily ❤💖🌈

Smily’s featured Track

Hello all you beautiful souls 🌈❤🌈

It is time again for my next featured track. Today’s track is by Liquid Mazes aka Ryan Shawn who has been sharing original tunes on Twitter for years while also listening and supporting other artists. Isn’t that important in this industry that we all support each other? Today let’s support him by listening to his track and sharing it/commenting if you enjoyed it as well .

A bit about the Artist by the artist.

Ryan Shawn McDonald from Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada. I have been taking music seriously as far as production about 5 years. I don’t limit myself to one genre and consider  myself a multi genre artist.

A bit about the Track by the artist.

I made the track in mid summer while a lot of emotions were flowing through me at the time. I feel like that came through in the sound. It’s me on the piano keys, i did the entire track, no samples.

A bit about the Track by Smily.

I chose this track by Ryan because the melody is so pleasant and dreamy. The title fits this song as I can imagine looking up at the stars with a hopefull dreamy feeling, on the verge of falling in love, with thoughts of good days ahead. A song for us dreamers that aren’t afraid to dream but then also go after making those dreams come true.

Please give it a listen and help support the artist by sharing this article, following @StanginNbangin  on Twitter and listening to and sharing the music. Kind comments are always welcome too as this keeps artists motivated 😊

Here’s the track! And as an added bonus Ryan has been so kind to offer a download of this track as well!

Here it is! Don’t forget to let me know what you think!

 

Much love always ❤ Smily

Smily’s featured New Release

Hello all you wonderful music lovers. You are in for such a treat, because today I am able to present to you the newly released track produced by John Lutchman.

Before I share this track I want to tell you a bit of background so you can relate to the beauty of this moment and this track.

Before I started my own blog years ago I used to write articles for other blogs now and then. One of the first articles I ever wrote was a small list of tracks of producers who I had heard on SoundCloud where when I heard their music it touched my heart and soul in a way where it made me feel this is a producer to watch out for in the future. John Lutchman was one of them and one I felt strongly about.

To me it’s been exciting watching him work so hard towards his goals and making it so far. He plays many shows in New York and Austin and has grown to a whole new level of skills. He’s reached great success and I was beyond honored when John shared the track he made with me and asked for my feedback.

I always enjoy getting to hear a track someone worked hard on and put their heart and soul into, it’s something special and I treasure it whenever this happens. When I heard John’s track the melody and sound hit me so hard!

I love the vibe of this song so much, the melody is lovely and the first time I heard it I just didn’t want it to end. And it moved me, really moved me. Tears were streaming down my face even though it’s not a sad melody. His music touched my heart and soul. There are many talented producers out there, but not many can translate feelings into music. It’s a special talent only a few people have. John is one of them.

John has worked EXTREMELY hard over the years and hasn’t always gotten the breaks he deserves in my eyes, but he doesn’t complain and keeps working hard with a positive attitude.

I’d like to ask all of you in our lovely music community to now all get together and show John how much we appreciate people like him that love the music as much as us. I’d like to ask you to carefully listen to this track and see how it moves YOUR soul and then share it with your friends. And then give John Lutchman a follow on Twitter reach out to him and tell him not to ever give up because we need his music in this world.

His Twitter is @John_Lutchman

And now (drumroll)

A masterpiece 🎶🔊💕

 

Smily’s featured Track

Good day all you wonderful people ❤

I have a new featured track for you all to enjoy. As you all know I am a bit newer to the Techno genre and have been exploring that field some in addition to the electronic genres I already love so much. Today I want to introduce you to a friend of mine that has been sharing great podcasts and mixes with me that I truly enjoy. Chris Porter. We started talking about him producing his own music and I was very delighted when he went for it and started making his own tracks. Let’s let Chris speak for himself. 😊

A bit about the Artist by the Artist

I’m Chris Porter, living in the Western Isles, Scotland. DJ for 8 years and most recently started producing. I have regular slots on radio stations like casafondaradio.com, studiosoundsradio.com and locally on anradio.scot.

I love a bass heavy sound driving a dance floor and just aim to play and share motivating, captivating Techno. Hardcore Drumcode fan boy 😂

A bit about the track by the Artist

The track is made from inspired ideas kind of subconsciously from my favourite producers. Trikk, Pan Pot, Pig & Dan, Adam Beyer, Harvey MacKay I could go on, I’m happy how it sounds although I will need to have it mastered and feel optimistic about future projects! 😁

To be honest I want to make techno sounds that haven’t been heard before but keeping a deep dark driving energy about it, hopefully I will keep to my word!

A bit about the track by Smily

I liked it the moment I heard it. It has a nice tech feel to it that close your eyes and dance to the way the music makes you feel kind of vibe. I think Chris is modest and has great talent in his field. This track isn’t mastered yet but still manages to sound really good.

Please listen to his track below and give it a share and a comment if you like it to show your support. You may follow Chris on Twitter as well @ChrisIPorter

Here’s the link to the track 😊

Art inspired by Music

Hello lovely people ❤💕

Today I bring you something quite special. I want to introduce a beautiful soul to you that has great talent in art. Let me introduce Andromeda Galaxy aka GMoney. I met her via Twitter where we enjoyed sharing and listening to music. I loved seeing her art come across my feed as well.

Then one day she sends me a picture of a painting she started inspired by one of my playlists. She would paint while listening to the music and each time send me updates of the progress. Of course this felt like such a huge honor it blew me away. The art is finished now and I’d like to share some pictures of the art inspired by music and to let dear Andromeda share a bit about herself and her art. Please enjoy 😘🌈

A word by the Artist

G$

One of the messages in my state of being the visual artist Gmoney is to see the humor in life. My given first name starts with a G and I’ve been called Gmoney for different reasons by different people in a fun, honest way.

But for me and people who know me well it holds a kind of sarcastic joke. I mean you’d think I’m ballin with a name like that right? Fact is most of the time i have no money lol But I am known to be reliable, help people, take care of business and have great taste. I have no car, but sometimes people think I have wings, or a broomstick.

It’s been said about my word, you can take it to the bank. And somehow—I won’t say things always work out for me but—great things come through and I find money and good fortune in unusual places… by looking closely, being observant.

That’s another message in my artwork: pay attention, be aware, inspect the details. Because you will often see something new or see a familiar thing in a new perspective, when you’re paying close attention in life and also I hope when you look at my canvases.

Most of all, it’s about the music, for people who don’t listen to electronic dance music and who do. Painting is how I visually, synesthetically interpret the sounds and feels of our music through the lens of whatever is on my own mind. Even when I’m inspired by outside visions, the techno is always what moves my brush!

The way I keep it positive for myself is, under the name Gmoney I’m painting under a symbol representing success I will achieve in good time, including ample means to enjoy more of what’s amazing in life…including a very long list of EDM festivals I haven’t been to yet!!

One goal I have is to paint live to live music at all kinds of EDM events… to meet and talk with all different crews and DJs from all over the world. I want to ‘bring it to the next level’ by infusing the live energy of the crowd at a show into my visions and work.

Gmoney’s recording artist alter-ego is a creature of voice, sound and word: Andromeda Galaxy and on the hard side, the Androminator.

Final words by Smily

I feel such lovely energy coming from this beautiful artwork when I look at it. Can you imagine the happy feelings it would give you each time you look at this while it’s hanging in your home?😍 It’s absolutely gorgeous and I will forever be honored that my playlists helped inspire a wonderful artist. ❤

Enjoy this great art and be sure to follow her on Twitter @gal_andromeda and @fka_GS reach out to her you would like to contribute to her art 💋

Much love and Good Vibes to all of you and till next time 😘 Smily
