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!!!
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.
You can listen to some of my old songs on my main MistrustMusic website, as well as Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and more!
I’ve now have a music “campaign” page for my song “Never Alone” with links to buy or stream the track on different platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music. There’s also a link on the page to download “Never Alone” for free by following me on SoundCloud, Spotify, or Apple Music.

Partly because I’ve got a link with New Zealand music (because of my remixes for Pitch Black), and partly because I think the new laws stink, I’ve joined The New Zealand Internet Blackout to protest against the Guilt Upon Accusation law ‘Section 92A’ that calls for internet disconnection based on accusations of copyright infringement without a trial and without any evidence held up to court scrutiny. This is due to come into effect on February 28th unless immediate action is taken by the National Party.
The webiste Creative Freedom says “Join thousands of New Zealanders already against this law by blacking out your Facebook photo, your websites, your Myspace pages, your Twitter account, in protest against this unjust new law that may come into effect on February 28.” There are over 5,000 signatures to the petition on the site already. If you’re a Twitterer, please include the #blackout tag to your Tweets!
My Twitter profile and blog have been changed to reflect the “Blackout” theme! If you want to get involved with this protest, go to the following link and get some more info!
