Radio Broadcast News:
We will be returning to the Voidshift Radio Broadcast in a few weeks, We are on the process on moving to TrakLife Radio for a wider audience and to fill the gap that they don't have in beat music and culture. This will enable us to have a less embarrassing studio to hold the show and attract people to play live through that venture. We always wanted to share to everyone what we collect and make; I feel that our first season of the broadcast was our starting point to getting that out to everyone. We will be moving to a new time slot on Sundays from 5-630 PM PST. More updates concerning this merge will come up in the following days.
What I'm Thinking:
I've been taking some time off for myself to reflect and review what we have done so far. I never really talk about what Voidshift is about; first and foremost its a place for Me and my friends to keep music in our lives. From the radio show to the releases, it keeps me active outside of my mundane office life. Think hobby. For me to be a mix engineer and have the capabilities to master as well, Voidshift has enabled me options to work on my friends' music - to create a fufilled product with quality that can't be denied.
Most of the time I hear internet labels out right now, they keep pushing and pushing (which is great in terms of content, but how about longevity?). I always think about the actual longevity of people's songs in other people's hearts - will these tunes that they make this month be in their mind for the next year? Why has being popular and rampant become the next norm? Why is being relevant even a popular idea to begin with in terms of creating. I say concentrate on your crafts, create your own avenue at your own speed. My point is that Voidshift isn't a label, its a place where we as a family keep our creations, open for anyone interested in unique, free, and designed worthy sounds.
For me my ultimate goal was to finally create beats to a quality that I imagined, and not something I made out of spite. Of course I had to have a basic idea of music, and that's where thank all the 100+ beats I made prior to wave groove, left me along with basic blink. In my mind, the only way for me to create originally was to rely less on fully sampled melodies and stick to learning keys, learning programs, learning engineering, etc. I say discipline and consistency is what drives my motivation. In all 75 beat ideas I made this year only about 24 will have become full songs and will be out on my band-camp by December 31st.

For the past couple of months we have been working on the Voidshift Compilation (Project VS 2014) very diligently. This release will be one of our most proud products to date because it defines the diversity of sounds that we make, and the mutual respect that we hold with our closest allies in this music culture. This project is a gift to everyone that is involved and for the people that simply want new compelling electronic music. Since the start of the year we fully put alot of effort toward the music and the ability to share alternatively to the current popular avenues online. This project is currently on it's last stage and will be out on our official Bandcamp as soon as it will be ready.
The following will be part of this compilation:
