I couldn’t be more proud of this moment…my first release on Spotify, singing with amazing BebeGurl!
With each new version of Live, it seems Ableton makes leaps and bounds. Live 10, in my opinion, is the most important update in perhaps 10 years. There are some incredible improvements that pave the way for future advances for years to come. While there are programmatic and under-the-hood changes, for me, as a music producer, the workflow enhancements are the most critical and most welcome updates. With that said, here are my five favorite new features of Live 10, which is set for release on February 6, 2018: 1) The look and feel of Live 10 is crisp and clear with vector graphics and screen redraws at 60 frames per second.

He had the following to say about Catharsis: “I’m so honored to be a part of Abid Hussain’s fourteenth studio album. He’s an Ableton Certified Trainer, an all around musical genius, and helluva nice guy. I can’t say enough about Catharsis. It’s just awesome music mixed really well. It’s optimistic at times, tragic at others. The emotional range of this project is sunrise wide. Every song is a banger. t3mp0r4ry is synthy and dancy and trancy and smart. If Material Things doesn’t move you, you might be a robot. (Or maybe you’re just having a robot day. Everybody has robot days.) Track of Time slides and slinks in the sultriest and smoothest ways. Lighting reminds me of the first time I ever heard Gillean Welch. The Next Day is like looking across a desert. You can see for miles. And oh my goodness, the sound of rain… read more →
Chlorophyll is a collaboration between Nebulae and Cat Hall Angeles, formerly of Dissonance. Most of the songs have elements of darkwave and breakbeat electronica. Cat’s vocals are the best I’ve ever worked with. I can’t praise them enough. Read the interview of Chlorophyll by Regen Magazine. Buy Chlorophyll music: http://music.nebulae.com/album/chlorophyll

In December 2010, a fellow musician passed away. His name was Martin Brown, but we knew him as Leedsquietman. Over the years, Martin impacted many of us.
