What Happened To You? (37)

11 June 2024


'37' from my 'Year of Music' series has become 'What Happened To You?' as well as receiving a fresh cover image.

Over the years, as my musical tastes expanded and I spent some time in the world of soul music, one of the things that often came to my thinking was wondering what happened to the singer / song writer. Where did the depths of lyrics come from? Was it personal experience? Was it observations from others around them? Was it tapping into the nature of humans and their psyche, and using it creatively? However it was arrived at and delivered, that's the reasoning for my title.

The cover image is a combination of experimenting with various, very descriptive prompts on AI artwork applications and then giving it an edit myself until I felt happier with it. I think it captures a person in a contemplative moment with an appropriate brooding and atmospheric scene around him.

It's worth mentioning again from time to time, as I repost / rename these mixes and selections that they were a part of a project to post a fresh mix or selection, every week during the course of 2022. The aim was to raise funds for a charity that has been close to my heart and you can find more about that via this link [HERE] which will take you to a standalone page on my blog. It wouldn't have been as fun or interesting if I just churned out 52+ mixes of house or ambient so I tried to vary the genres over the course of the year to keep it interesting for myself and for anyone who happened to listen, so sometimes it was more of a selection than a traditional DJ mix.

If you prefer to use Soundcloud over Hearthis, then there is a link to Soundcloud [HERE], though that link might not always be active, it depends how I feel about keeping the subscription costs going and swallowing all these costs over time.
