I’m closing my Beatstars beat store

Beat store Closing down sale!

Hello Dear Reader!

I’ve taken the difficult decision to close my Beatstars account and store this time next month (April 2021), so all my beats at beatstars.com/mistrust are now available at reduced prices. I no longer have the time to make beats for rappers & producers/artist on a regular basis, hence the decision to close the account.

I’ve found it really difficult to do the promotion to generate any sales or licensing on the platform, in other words, I still haven’t made any sales 🙄.. If any producers, rappers, and artists out there are looking for beats, head over to my beatstars page and get some new beats before I close my beats store for good!!!

Good News!

The good news (for some!) is that I’m continuing to make new music! I’ve just bought an AKAI MPK Mini Play MK3 MIDI keyboard with built-in speakers (check out my unboxing video here), and making some new songs.

Mistrust Music

You can listen to some of my old songs on my main MistrustMusic website, as well as Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and more!

New Age Mistrust Remix is out on Spotify…

My new single “New Age (Mistrust Remix)” – a collaboration with Australian touring musician Rob.V is out on Spotify and all major music streaming platforms. The song was released on November 19th, 2021, and is already generating some interest and getting airplay on some online radio stations. You can buy or stream the song here on Bandcamp and Spotify!

Rob and I would love to get some feedback on the song, and hope you can all help spread the word about the song!

It’s Bandcamp Friday

It’s another Bandcamp Friday, which means that today, all labels and artists on bandcamp are forwarded 100% of the money they make via the platform. Therefore I’d like to encourage to look at my catalog and see if there’s something you’ve been thinking to get, and support independent music!

Loopcloud 6 has now arrived!

I’ve just read that Loopcloud version 6 has now been released! It has a number of new features including AI harmonic and rhythmic file-matching, improved search, better workflow, new FX, and much more.

What is Loopcloud?

Loopcloud is a cloud-based music sample store, made by Loopmasters who have been selling sample packs for years. The idea is that instead of buying a whole pack of samples that you won’t use everything in, you can buy individual files with credits, when you need them. Loopcloud has a desktop app which connects directly to the store, and also integrates with your DAW. This allows you to play samples in time with your own projects and use the app audition new sounds on the fly.

I’ve been using Loopcloud on and off for a few years and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cloud-based sample store. I can’t wait to try out the new features!

Look out for my forthcoming post about Loopcloud and how I use it in my music production.
