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!
Here is the video for my new R&B Type Beat… It’s an uplifting pop / happy type beat. The hook/chorus is “Never thought you’d be the one”. It really needs someone to rap over it or put some vocals to it.
Tempo is 89BPM and Key is D# Minor. If you want to license this song, please use my Beatstars store.
Full Track stems are available as well as Tagged and untagged MP3 and Wav files.
Although I’ve been making downtempo, dub, and similar sorts of music for years (as well as remixing other people’s songs), by kids think I should get “with it” and start making “beats” instead. I honestly had very little idea of what they were talking about, until they started playing rap songs in the car, and told me that it isn’t usually the rapper who makes the music for these songs. I didn’t realise that the rapper has someone else do this, but something licences (or not!) these “beats” from someone else. After listening to a few raps songs and youtube tutorials about making “beats”, I had a go at making some myself on my new Akai MPK Mini Mark 3, and my kids think the beats are “sick” !!!
I’ve since found out that you can put these beats on a marketplace, and on Youtube for people to license, so I’ve upload a couple to Beatstars.com, and onto my Youtube channel. So far there have been many plays, or sales (none!) but I’m having fun making the beats. If anyone who’s reading this needs some beats or likes the ones in the video, let me know in the comments on Youtube, or via my beatstars account.
