Yes, in a bumper February I have continued the run of releases with the first Dorian Zoyd single, “The Chaos Engine”. The tune actually comes from my rather unique radio-integrated hardware pop tune of the same name.
And, like that, a new version of my website.
Futures EP version 1.2 has been released! I have spent the last couple of months completely revamping the app, primarily to make it compatible with the new iPhone form-factor.
Along the way I have given the app a fresh coat of paint, and added some extra media related to the open outcome record. Head over to the iTunes app store for a download.
The cogs of my brain whirred and I realised that the upcoming remix of ‘The Chaos Engine’ (heading for the Diplodisc sampler) would make an excellent first release for Dorian Zoyd.
The Dorian Zoyd SoundCloud page is now active! Check here for DZ-related tunage, including in-the-works items.
Some exciting news for 2014 – a couple of my tunes will be featured on a sampler by label Diplodisc! Alessandro Monti from the label contacted me about an old track called “Trees” (actually a Nick Dawe track feat. me on vocals and bass guitar), looking for it to go in the collection.
As I was also thinking of remixing “The Chaos Engine" and releasing it as its own track, and so suggested the track for the sampler also, to which Alessandro said yes! So, there you go, some good stuff to occur early in 2014.
After some deliberation I have decided that Lost Zoyd will be set aside to make way for an all new project: Dorian Zoyd. This project will continue on from where its predecessor was musically.
Why not just continue with Lost Zoyd? Well, I felt that Lost Zoyd possibly lacked a personality, and that giving the Zoyd a name would give the project more character.
Look for Dorian Zoyd to get some releases done in 2014, and in the meantime, follow on Twitter.
Yes, it’s true. I did a poor job of my CreativePact this year. I fell into “oh, I’ll just take this day off” syndrome after hitting a technical snag importing video into Final Cut Pro. Bring on next year!
