My Journey From Sound to Music





My sincere apologies to everyone that it took me quite a long while to finally sit down and write a new blog entry.  Yes, I took that much needed break.  I may have kept myself out of the limelight--i.e. from performing onstage, but that didn’t mean I stopped spinning and producing music.  Of course, I’ve had my moments for some r&r, but nothing can keep me away from my music.

This was one of the very few and rare moments that I totally devoted myself and spent most of my time doing studio work, and dabbled on DJ-teaching in between.  With the guidance of one of my mentors, Jampietri, who became my partner-collaborator in the studio,  I can say, that I focused and immersed myself into the intricate yet fascinating world of music production.

Don’t get me wrong; of course I really missed the vibrance and the adrenaline of performing onstage, and resonating with the energy of the crowd.  But I’m grateful that I have been given this time to experience and appreciate a whole new world that is away from the flashing lights.  

So what did I learn from this experience?  You need to start and look from within.  Studio work has given me the atmosphere and the mood to create.  Yet, at the end of the day, it’s still just sound.  Great music happens once you take that sound and share it, for the world to hear....

Now with gratitude in my heart, I’d like to share my music.  Check out my latest production As Long As You Say - Miss Diamond DJ feat. Jampietri , which you may be able to download for FREE from my Soundcloud account: https://soundcloud.com/miss-diamond.  And feel free to browse and give my other mixes a spin!

As I mentioned earlier, I do hold DJ classes, yet for those of you who really want to take your skills to a higher level, I am also at the helm of presenting the International DJ Academy.  For those interested, visit the website: http://www.dj-academy.ch , for more details.
