Discord Demo Day with guest host Kora

For this month’s Discord Demo day I was very happy to host one of the nicest and most talented guys in our scene, Kora. In addition to Kora being a dear friend and top level producer, he gives some of the best critical feedback on the industry. I actually send all my own work to him before I release any of my work because his ear is so good. Enjoy!

Highlights from Discord Demo Day with guest host TÂCHES

Who would have thought that last week’s Discord Demo Day would lead to a few tracks offered to sign or continued on as collaborations with TÂCHES?

Overall, the session was a smash. Taches and I were supposed to go only 1 hour, but we had so much fun we doubled it and went for two. Just goes to hammer home the point I made last week: don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. You never know what opportunities might be around the corner. Also, it’s incredibly satisfying to hear feedback within my Discord community that producers – even the ones who aren’t submitting demos – are finding great value in improving on their own creative journey. I think we’ve got something special going 🙂

This is a little snippet from the full thing, hats off to the producers featured here: Will Anjers, Drew Proud, Reza Safinia, Wave, Howl, Goodboy James, Words Of Nio. Who should I have as my guest host next month?

Feedback Friday on Discord (Recap)

Sharing a few bits from last week’s first #feedbackfriday, a livestream where I critique demos in real time. I really enjoyed this, and I was glad to see in the Discord chat that many of you found it valuable as well. It’s hard enough making yourself vulnerable to critical feedback privately, so having me critique your work in a public forum is a win in itself. One unexpected upside was two of the tracks submitted were heard by a label owner and were offered to sign!

I wish I had enough time to make it through all the submissions, but fear not, I will do another one of these in a month. Also, if you subscribe at the “My Dear Hotdog” tier on Patreon, I can ensure that your track will be prioritized next time around. Be sure to hang out in my Discord server for updates around the next one, both Patreon and Discord links here:
