Smily’s Playlist by the Twitterfam

πŸ¦„πŸŒˆβ€πŸŽΆ Hello all of you beautiful souls!

Most of you know how much I like to support Artists, make playlists and share music on Twitter. My taste is very broad in music and I share accordingly.

About a month ago I thought it would be fun to make a playlist of music and songs all made by the great artists on Twitter who love, make and support one another in making music.

I was pleasantly overwhelmed with the response and submissions of tracks by artists. There is so much talent out there, so much creativity. All of you that submitted your music, I want to thank you! And if your track didn’t make the playlist this time, don’t give up! There will be more opportunities, I always listen every track that is sent to me. 😊🎢

It was such a success that I have decided not to stop here. I was trying to decide if I’d start making these playlists monthly or keep building on the original playlist.

I put a poll out on Twitter and asked for all your feedback and ideas, so I can keep them for consideration when I make my decision on which way I choose to go. So thank you everyone for your feedback and thoughts. It means a lot 😊πŸ₯°

I have decided to make a monthly or bi-monthly playlist (depending on my work/travel schedule)

Then after sharing the tracks one by one on Twitter and then the entire playlist. Make it stay available on Spotify as well as write a blog article with a link to the playlist including the artists that contributed to the playlist. This way they may share the article and the playlist to help themselves and fellow artists to get their music out there.

There are some other ideas and future plans in the works but I will tell you more on that later πŸ€—πŸ˜‰

Below please see the link to the very first Twitterfam playlist which I hope is the start of something special πŸ’• Your music certainly is special!

This is Mike Ferrum + a free download.

Mike is one of my music friends from my hometown in Rotterdam.

He has been involved with music for a really long time, especially Trance I can always count on him to be willing to have a fun conversation revolving around music. Recently Mike has reached a beautiful milestone in music, and in honor of that we did a little interview and Mike is providing a free download of his mix to share with all of you.

Please enjoy the conversation we had below. This way you can all get to know him a little better and see how much passion Mike has for music.

I really wanted to add the pictures we took together several years back when we went to Hardwell in the Netherlands. But unfortunately neither myself or Mike can find them anymore.😞

Mike has a radio show where I used to help now and then to share the tracks he was playing on Twitter. Fun memories 😊

Below enjoy our conversation, questions and answers.

Smily: Mike how often is your radioshow again?

Mike: The show is the first and third Saturday each month from 4 PM till 6 PM Dutch time on http://www.lazerfm.com

Smily: Talk some about yourself that I can share for the article.

Mike: It’s always so difficult to just talk about yourself πŸ˜…

Smily: Just talk the way we always chat. About your love for music and how you started with everything.

Mike: I’ve always really liked music. Especially house music. For example thee was Dario G and Mauro Picotto and also Gigi D’Agostino but that was pretty commercial/mainstream and played on the radio. Back then you could watch the videos on TMF andere the Box. And whenever there was a party I used to think how fun it would be if you could be the one to decide what music was played. I didn’t really know the whole concept of DJ or mixing back then.

In early 2000 I discovered TiΓ«sto after hearing some hits like lethal industry, flight 643 and suburban train but that was about the extent of my knowledge.

Smily: Do you remember when you started getting actively involved with music and mixing?

Mike: Yesssss for my 15th birthday my parents gave me a DVD that could also play MP3 files. And my Dad made a CD that included a 1 hour set of Tiesto.

After that I started searching for more music and found underground trance that hardly anyone had heard of. I also found the first ever Tiesto concert on mp3 and played that set to death. I can’t count how many time I listened to it. When a DVD was released and I bought it I saw what a DJ could do, I knew then that I wanted to do that too.

So I bought a mixer that had 2 CD Players with a tterrible pitch haha. But it taught me to mix. After a few years I was able to buy the real deal. That’s when I could really practice.

In 2007 I started a small podcast and in 2009 I started at lazerfm.

And now I am 455 shows along and I can easily say I have recorded about 900 hours of music just for the shows. In a positive way.

Smily: Really fantastic what you have reached with your love for music. .TiΓ«sto was especially a big inspiration for you right?

Mike: At that time he seemed to always know how to pick the right tracks and adjusted to the crowd. He would play things that were completely new and different from all the other DJ’s and I really admire that.

Smily: I really love the trance mixes you always send me. Would it be okay if we share a special download link with everyone of your milestone show?

Mike: Yes of course!

Helloooo all you music loving people!πŸ’•

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.Β  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!πŸŽΆπŸ’•πŸ˜

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.Β  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 β€˜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 β€πŸ’–πŸŒˆ

Smily’s featured free download!

Hello all you beautiful souls!!!!πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’–

Do I have a special treat for you my fellow music lovers. A free download from Jack Taylor! Let me tell you how this came about.

I was speaking with my friends Martin from Norway @HMTharald on Twitter who together with a team managesΒ @JVCK_TVYLOR a talented artist (in my opinion) and my friend Chez from Australia @astateofChez who actively supports them.

During our conversation they mentioned how Jack made a really great DJsnake bootleg remix that was going to be posted on SoundCloud. I was looking forward to hearing and sharing it with all of you, but there were some complications in getting it uploaded to SoundCloud, it just would not allow it to be put up there.

No one should keep good music from the world so we came up with the idea for me to share this lovely remix as a free download via my blog.

So here it is my dears a free download courtesy of @HMTharald and @JVCK_TVYLOR please give them a follow as a thank you and look forward to more great music in the future. 😎🎢

Here’s your link to download. Tweet me if you have downloaded the track and let me know what you think. πŸ˜™
