There is always hope

Fifty one years old, just had my first release on vinyl - picked up from a track I posted on soundcloud and chosen to join a drum and bass compilation album by a lovely guy in Germany (Mindcolor Music)

Received two copies today, on beautifully thick vinyl, with one labelled just for me. Nice to see the kids eyes go wide. I'm a huge music fan and this kills me. I've been making music since I was about 17 on my Amiga and it's been a lifelong hobby. I really am feeling humble. Huge love to all the folk on here who encouraged me to keep making music, whether you ever did that or not.

Peace and love from Scotland



Here's the track. Posted it here before, but I didn't intend for this to happen, so I'm not even that happy with it! Remade the Uranium pad on the JD990 (the chord is all over the Internet, uses a Mellotron patch from the vintage synth board), Akai S1000 doing a (non-Splice!!) Amen and Jupiter 6 doing the big synths. 101 doing a few bleeps. S1000 also provided the sub. JX8P the strings nearer the end. Sean Costello provided the effects via Valhalla DSP. Mastered myself and that's probably the worst bit - not got the punch

Well done, nice tune... though if your data is important to you, I'd update your vinyl HSM to one with computer chips and stuff!

Cool I look forward to the next concept album "blue/green failover after problematic upgrade of VMWare Server in Canary Ring that resulted in unexpected propagation of tub girl across regions. Next update in 4 hours."

Congratulations! Nothing beats the feeling of having your own music on vinyl – medium-wise I mean, there are other great feelings as well

We've never had a multi-Region failure and our stuff is much better than that vmware stuff

Appears to be something with the SoundCloud embed and certain browsers. I never see links using the embedded feature on the forum. Sometimes, I don’t even know there’s a link. If I do know, I can quote the post, then in the editor copy the link.

Thanks again for the kind words, and for the avoidance of doubt this was never about me trying to spam the track, it really was a heartfelt β€œkeep doing what you enjoy doing, as at the end of the day what makes you happy is a worthwhile passion” kind of post!

Huge congrats dude!! I’m turning 49 tomorrow, so hopefully there’s still a chance I can release something before I die haha. First I have to close down my business and send the kids off to college, that’s all.

Congratz, getting on vinyl, in a compilation, and all that.
I really like the track, and the genre.

Loved the part about the kids' eyes going wide too.
