It is nice to be back to start writing blog articles again. For a while I wondered if it was still relevant to keep doing this. But based off all your feedback it is still very much wanted so I will continue to do this for now.
Most blogs charge a fee to create a post to offset the time it takes to put together. I have not done so yet but may ask for a small fee to help support me support all of you in the near future. For now if you want to buy me a coffee or send a small token of appreciation for the support of music artists it is much appreciated.
You may do so here:
My first featured track of the year is one of the tracks on my most recent curated Spotify playlists. I have followed and listened to CBKtrxx for a little while now and enjoy the different and unique sounds.
In addition to a love for music we also discovered that we share a love for KLM (Dutch airline) which was something really fun to find out.
What draws me to this track is a combination of the beautiful melodic sound mixed with a dark sound.
I look forward to hearing what all of you think about the track. Be sure to follow, listen and send some positive messages to encourage this artist to keep up the great work.
Now let’s let the artist speak and tell us about themselves and the track
About the track and Artists by the Artist:
Hi I am CBKtrxx and I am an electronic songwriter/producer from Sweden.
Most of the music is electronic and retro influenced, but I can pick up the guitar and bass too.
I like to make new music that comes to me. To paint with a sound and producing it and find something beautiful.
I listen to a lot of music and have always done. I grew up with synthpop and then went deep into the indie music scene. We had a good indie band with live music and guitars, bass and drums and then I let it go for awhile. The music. Then I felt I have more music to make.
I think about songs and sounds all the time. Honestly I do music for myself. But the joy of people listening to my music is unreal. Those people who find my music and let me know
I started to release songs in 2020 and they are somewhere in the electronic retro world with an indie influence. I work in Logic Pro and record most of it at home. I like to program some and then playing for real. Get the feeling into it. I did a song called The Beach which is meant to have a lofi vibe and a song called Slowly which is more dreampop. The latest songs Bliss and Faith are more electronic
Bliss and Faith are my latest songs. 2 songs that I felt belong together.
Bliss is an indie electronic song that builds up a feeling to a sound of retro synthesizers. Programmed synthbass and beats combined with real playing it has something of an electronic slow blues vibe in it. It is dark but melodic and ask what Bliss is.
I started out with lyrics that were more advanced and they didn’t feel right when I first tried them. They looked good but Bliss is a special song where the sound is dark and it is like a drawn out feeling and well. I did a take with lyrics more straight to the point and it felt so much better. That is where the ”if you ask I’m gonna tell you” comes from. Bliss is about a feeling you get with the right person. “And your taste it goes around me, and the flavor magnifies me”. I am really happy with the song and the sound on this one.

Good Vibes to all of you ☺️ Smily/Judy
