You’d be smiling too if you were in Aruba this week like Marie
Monday drum days 🥁
Come get beamed up with us tomorrow night at @oej_jacks 👽 🛸
Please note: this is not directed at anyone/me being petty, just making jokes on a beautiful Friday! (honestly I feel awful when that happens cuz I’ve been there as an artist and it’s discouraging to even wanting to keep making music)
Let’s get extraterrestrial on Saturday! The abduction is happening at @oej_jacks and the lineup is out of this world!
If I told you you could save a ton of money and make music that sounds as good as it does in your head(or better!) you’d be in right I want to help you make your next project special. I’m booking the end of May, June, and July right now so get in here and let’s make your music sound amazing for a fraction of what you’d pay in a big studio(and they definitely won’t put the time and care into your project as I will)

Getting ready for the Summer Concerts! 🎶
When I was getting my bearings with drum tuning (knowing drum tuning is crucial to great recorded drums) I made some mistakes and took bad advice. I listened to a YouTube video that told me a shortcut/life hack to getting a good snare is to get your top head in tune with itself and note how many turns/half turns it took. then just crank the resonant head to be 3-4 times tighter than that. No checking for pitch relation just counting out the turns. It sounded fine, but nothing like the snare drum sounds I loved. Turns out my resonant head was way way too tight! I had choked out sounds that couldn’t cut through a room or mix. Just kind of blah sounding. My poor, shortcut tuning style was the mistake. I still go tighter on the snare side(because you want that side to kick back to you and be more sensitive) but it’s more than half as much as I used to and my drums (and drum recordings) are still thanking me for listening to them and spending the time tuning the right way.
Let’s make some meters move this Monday!
Have a great week everyone!!! Cheers!!!!

Huge shout out to @karmaversa doing the damn thing! Loving their style with this hoodie; connecting their roots with what they love doing. MUSIC. I love that this group is so diverse and I truly appreciate their Latino influence displayed in their clothing line and music.
If you like Alternative/Post Hardcore Music- you need to check them out!
And if you dont- still check out! Trust me! Their jam "Brujeria" and "Healing Ocean" from their latest album -Merriam- are my favorites. Just enough rock with some soul.
Karma Versa's vibes are dope AF.
You can listen for yourself - @karmaversa on iTunes & Spotify
And if you are local, you can catch them playing live @thesocialgastropub Sat. 5/18
Check out thier page for more info @karmaversa
