Hey guys, i want to take this moment to focus on the word "Team" and why it's so important. It will be an indispensable part of your career! No big artist has ever made it without the help of someone. If it's management, bookings, productions or touring. At the beginning it's all doable for you, but as soon as you take the first big step into the business and you feel the next steps will be crucial, it's wise to have someone with expertise by your side. You need people around you that are experts in their field that will help you make an impact in yours! And what do I mean by that? You, as an artist need to be able to focus on your creative mind, dwell in inspiration and do everything you can to become the best in what you do. If you decide to go down that route: Get ready! Because it's going to become painful. A LOT of mistakes, un-responded messages, shitty gigs, human disappointments, frustrations and getting-ups. We have fought this fight..and it can be f***ing tough at times. But the great thing is: You know it's coming and you can prepare yourself! 95% of the people don't have the balls to face these struggles, get out of their comfort zone and are probably not that passionate about it as you are! And your prize is: Joy of achieving a major dream and lessons learned for a lifetime. This is also the reason why I have teamed up with 2 of my longtime friends in this business: Tom Staar & grammy nominated mixing engineer Kevin Grainger. We have created an insane live-group-mentoring course that will shortcut you're road to success! I think you all know Tom Staar as an artist and you for sure have heard Kevin's work: Fisher's "Loosing It", Avicii´s Album "Tim", all of my work and recently he's mixing the brand new Swedish House Mafia Album! So get ready and use the chance to Opt-In HERE to receive updates about course launch & pricing. Course coming early 2022! Let us know your thoughts and I hope you're getting as excited as we are! Cheers Eddie

First of all: Happy New Year to all of you out there! It's the first week of ´22 now and I managed to get back on my feet after melting together and becoming one with my couch for at least a week. A new year always is a good point to work on optimizing the things you've done in the year before. It's like a fresh start, a reboot. The motivation is high to get better at things in your life. When it comes down to the essence don't we all say: I want to be more fulfilled in what I do! I want to be happier! Enjoy life more! Be more successful in my job! I want to do more of what I really love! It's in our nature. The thing is we always seem to be craving for more. And no doubt: I'm the same! But it's also important to ease our mind, give yourself time to reflect on how great you've done last year in 2021. I'm sure there are tons of things you have achieved that you can be proud of. And a ton of things you can be grateful for. It might sound weird, but I've been sitting down during the holidays with a piece of paper and wrote down all the things that I have managed to pull off...and I soon realized that I have so many more important things than money and business success: I had people in my life that loved and supported me, I've showed empathy and courage, survived another year in the pandemic with now harm, overcame and healed from a severe accident, lived a healthy life, was aware of the feelings I wanted to generate and set daily intentions, brought joy to peoples lives, loved doing the things I did and stayed confident even in difficult situations, loved meeting and working with all of you. ...it hasn't been about the material things that mattered the most. I realized that these things have been my priority. These things are who I am. Somehow everything else fell into place and happened the way it was supposed to happen. And in a more easy way. I didn't pressure myself like I've done the years before. And I'm grateful for that. So, self-reflection and awareness seems to be some kind of superpower to people. We sometimes just forget about these things as a lot is happening in our daily lives, in the world around us. I can just say that setting good daily intentions has put my mind at ease. BIG TIME. And thinking about new year's resolutions: I want to be the exact same person I have been last year all over again!

Hi guys and welcome to this new category in our forum. I felt it was about time for me to sit down and think about what I could contribute that would be of real value to all of you. And what could be better than sharing some insights of the experiences I have made in the music world over the past 25+ years...And, wow..that actually is a pretty long time I have been doing this! But still going and reinventing myself, still evolving and being passionate about everything I do today. I will be posting weekly content on topics that made a big impact on my career and my personal life. About the ups & downs I have been through as an artist and how I manage to constantly achieve my goals. I hope this Blog will benefit you in order to grow and learn. Find new ways to master your every day tasks, bring vibrancy, joy and excitement to what you do :) Let the ride begin 😜 -Eddie

In MUSIC DISCUSSION
Hey guys, so a lot of you guys have been asking me what Analyzer I've been using on my screen in my studio. Making your music visual is one of the essential parts of studio life. So you really should start using this, or something similar. But this is honestly the BEST one that I've ever used. It´s a standalone that is running continuously when my mac is on. Everything that plays as audio is showing up there. Its the Pinguin Audio Multimeter. You can check it out here: https://www.masterpinguin.de/-2013/soft-prod-pro.html This is the Pro version, which is unaffordable haha. I found out there is a "Lite" version, which is the one I have been using for 6 years now and you can grab it here: https://frlsoft.fr/protected/products.php X Eddie
