Starting A Patreon

I’m broke.

Seriously.  You know the cliche of living in your mom’s basement?  That’s me.  Except for the mom’s basement part.

So the good news is that I am living.  That might not be good news to some people (it’s hard to be second best lol) but every waking hour is an opportunity to awaken from the nightmare of your mind.

Deep spiritual discourse aside, I feel bad asking for money.  Starting this Patreon, I don’t think I’m asking for money.  Asking Karla and my grandma for money is asking for money.  Starting a Patreon is my attempt at an exchange of value.

This won’t be the first thing I’ve ever attempted to make money from.  I did sell some CD’s from a band I was in.  I honestly did try to give said band the money I made but they never got back to me so I won’t name them.

Anyway, I’m going to start this Patreon page soon.  It’s already there I just need to jazz it up and make it, you know, workable.

There are some awesome rewards I have planned for those who are interested.  Pretty much, if you like what I do you’ll like my Patreon.

It’ll mean a lot to my family and me.  It’s also good for the world since no one needs another barista that hates their job ‘namsayin?

Once the page goes up I’ll be linking to it regularly.

I’ve also got a new EP coming out soon and that’s a whole ‘nother topic I’ll probably explore tomorrow.  I’ll see you for lunch tomorrow, how bow dah?

FLOW 16 – Arrival (Break Beats 4)

Not another flow video *facepalm*

I realize this flow series is not my most popular to date.  This is the last one I’ll post until I can improve it.  If you have any suggestions, let me know.

I’m working on a video (series?) showing how I use my mixcube.  I’m going to set up a linear omni and create/mix a 4 bar loop.  You’ll be able to see and hear me switch between my speakers.  This should help you if you’re interested in buying a mixcube or if you already have one.  It’ll be similar to a flow video but I’ll put a cam on my face and we should get some better audio.

If you enjoy these flow videos, let me know.  I’m currently preparing to start my third mix (“Lightbulb”) for the upcoming Uncomfortable EP pt.2.  You can check out pt. 1 here.  I figure it takes me about three weeks to finish a mix so I’ll need four videos minimum in the chamber before I start.

Like always, thanks for reading and watching.  Let me know what you’d like to see from me in the future, sub on YouTube if you haven’t and I’ll see you next week 🙂

Thanks,

My Last Video :(

It’s over.

2016 has come and gone like the heartbreaker he was.

It was a productive year for Hexspa.  I moved to a new apartment, released the Uncomfortable EP Pt. 1 and made about 10 Dance tracks under the 8 Bar Embryo playlist.

We also launched One True Path Acoustics – subscribe over there for all your acoustics stuff.  We’ll be putting all the tutorials and products for sale on a new channel and site.

We spiffed up the studio by recombining, repositioning and reupholstering my current acoustic panels.  We also built super chunk bass absorbers.

The Hexspa YouTube channel and brand has become more simplified.  No more vape or acoustics stuff.  It’s just going to be music, related tutorials and reviews and personal rants.

I’m currently mixing the Uncomfortable EP Pt. 2.  It’s got “Lightbulb” (which I’ve been playing for about 10 years) “Poetry Without Words” (already mixed, sounds great) and a purely electronic one called “Keep Your Head Up High (previously released but this is a new mix).  It should be out by March 2017.

I’m still using OSX 10.8.5.  I’m going to have to update to macOS Sierra.  Also, no more Pro Tools as they failed to fulfil their contract.  I should sue but fuck it.  I’m mixing on Live now which is ok.

I’m going to become a Syntorial affiliate this year so look out for related vids.

Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see from me.  Requests welcome!

Cool.  Hope you enjoyed the stuff I’ve done.  Sub and follow to keep up.

Happy New Year!
