ADSactly Music Initiative #24

Welcome back to our music edition of the Adsactly blog, where we try bring you something new and original, made exclusively here on the Steem chain. It has been a little longer than we would have liked since we last chatted, unfortunately our working environment has been just insane as of late, but getting a constant stream of work is nothing be moan about. The main thing is to just keep supporting this platform in any way you can, especially with the current state of affairs in regards to mass censorship of the the main social media platforms. There's a great quote by Shaw, "Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody reads."

"Trying to please everybody is impossible—if you did that, you’d end up in the middle with nobody liking you. You’ve just got to make the decision about what you think is your best, and do it." - John Lennon

We would also like to again ask anyone to please drop some links of your own music or anyone else in the comments below, if you come across a great tune, be cool and share, or come post it in our ADSactly discord server in the music_initiative channel. Our aim with this initiative is to help support music orientated content from across the Steem blockchain, focusing on original content.

We got together and decided we wanted to do something in the music space, as there are so many budding, talented musicians on the Steemit platform. We noticed that, although there were a lot of people posting, it felt like some of the contributors could use a little helping hand. I mean, who wouldn't want a little helping hand, right?
So where could WE add value? We could use our own in-house production people to help develop music for fellow Steemians looking for that little extra audio assistance.

We'll be running an initiative where Steemians can post their links below, and if the criteria are met (please read the criteria), we'll dig in with them and help mix their track, or add some instruments that they feel are missing from their song, or some little production techniques. If there isn't actually a post that our producer can work with, we might even just decide to give one of the entrants a bit of upvote love.

As time goes by and we put together enough collaborated content, we will then upload this content to digital stores (iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, etc.) and release a compilation album.

The other avenue where we would like to add value is to sync the music to commercials to try and develop some additional passive income for the artists.
Where will this go?
....Only time will tell!

Our Previous Winner

We’ve decided to give some upvote love to @fernando.lubezki for his very awesome series called "Making A Beat". It's a pretty awesome series involving the technical and creative process of how a beat comes together, something we as musicians take for granted as we do it every day, it has the feeling of the documentary series How It's Made. The song in question here is a take on a Reggaeton style tune, and explores the differences in the modern way and how it was originally. Also a big thank you and shout out goes out to @purapapita for sharing this with us. Please go check out his page and give him a follow @fernando.lubezki

I know the work that @fernando.lubezki is doing is his "Making A Beat". It is really a very interesting musical work, because it shows us the whole process for the digitalization of the chosen musical piece. I think he deserves the support they are giving him in his project and post, @MorkRock.

It's good that you've come back with this project and that you're keeping it, despite the bad winds that blow. Today's winning piece is innovative, musically interesting and even pedagogical. In particular, I had never seen before in steemit a musical piece presented in this way. I went through @fernando.lubezki's blog and this is the original way to present all his works. There are some very interesting pieces. Thank you and greetings, @morkrock

Hey adsactly! Must have posted at exactly the same time as I just uploaded this one.

Thoughts and feedback would be most welcome, always looking to develop production skills 🙂
