Haha, yesterday I was thanking Tumblr for the 1000 plays I got in a week, but I just got around 3200 in about 15/16 hours. I think these guys are responsible.
This is probably the best Monday I’ve had in a while.
This is the last seven days’ activity on my Soundcloud page - or, rather, since I uploaded that Ritual Union remix, which was about this time last week. This is the most activity I’ve ever had in this time frame (the last record was around 500 plays). I think all of you are probably responsible, and I’m so fucking grateful for that.
For professional artists a thousand plays in a week might not be a lot, but for one unknown, unsigned, and unrepresented bedroom producer, breaching quadruple figures in seven days isn’t too shabby.
Plus, for context, 1045 plays means that last week, on average, somebody was listening to my music every 9 minutes and 39 seconds. That’s awesome to me.
For any of you reading this, thank you for all of the kind messages, reblogs, likes, listens, downloads - everything. Whatever form your support has taken, I really appreciate it. If ever this music turns into something and I play a show in your city, remind me I owe you a hug and a cup of tea.
This is my friend Nell’s brother, Dominic, who died of cancer last year. Nell is hiking/climbing Ben Nevis on June 22nd 2012 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, as thanks for their care of him and their support she and her family received throughout his illness. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
You can do that here or SMS text DOMI66 followed by the desired amount to 70070. For example:
blaqoctopus asked: your playlist is the fucking epitome of greatness, nice beats btw that bloom is ill
Haha, holy shit. I’m glad you think so sir. Cheers!
It seems I forgot to post this here. When I uploaded my remix of Bonobo’s ‘Prelude’ and ‘Kiara’ it featured shortly after as the backing track to this interview with stuntman, inline skater, and (I believe the term is) traceur, Mathieu Ledoux.
