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.

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

Lately, I’ve Been Thinking it’s a New Age

Can you hear me?

The Rain is Falling.

Lately, I’ve been thinking…..

It’s a New Age.

New Age

These are some of the lyrics from “New Age”, by Australian singer/songwriter “Rob V.” I knew Rob’s music through a family connection (we’re sort of related) and was interested to hear his new album “Illusions” when it was released in late 2020. A lockdown album, written and produced in a remote setting in Western Australia.

Rob’s from Australia. He has been been a touring musician for over 20 years, known predominately for his guitar work with 43Cambridge & lead vocals/guitar in Dig The Dust. Although he has 6 original albums under his belt, the album ‘Illusions’ is his debut solo release.

Having remixed a song by a band in Australia (Ivory Towers by Deep Fried Dub) amongst the many other official remixes I’ve done – I thought that one or two songs on “Illusions” were sonically similar to the “Mistrust” swirly, downtempo sound, and would maybe suit a “Mistrust remix”.

I contacted Rob about the idea of a remix, and we first began shooting ideas via email mid-year in 2021 and it was obvious to both of us that this was a good fit. Rob.V was keen for me to take the reigns and creatively take it to another place. I worked on the track for probably longer than I normally do on a remix, and couldn’t quiet get my ideas to fit. However, in late September, it all seemed to fit together. The result has led to what can be described by what Rob calls a “cool British dub/reggae/downbeat spin on the original moody lockdown track”.

Worldwide Release!

“Rob V – New Age (Mistrust Remix)” will have a worldwide release on November 19, 2021, on all major download platforms.
