Made It To Episode 50
On 17th October Dynamic episode 50 was put out. In all honesty I didn’t think that i would carry it on this far. When I started it was mainly because I was hardly playing out, I had a lot of music and I was forever on my equipment practicing. But playing at home I was just doing that, I would play but not record anything and I didn’t feel it was adding value to my playing out.
The options on what I could do to fill the void,
- Go on to Radio – Find a pirate radio station go there and play. The problem that I had at this time was my work shift, I would not be able to have a constant slot with the way that my shift worked out plus finding time to leave the house to go to a physical building was something I didn’t want to do.
- Start my own Online Station – Set it up at home and play music from my own station. The is that it just sounds harder to do, not impossible, I believe if I put my energy into it I could get it up and running but then it would have to running 24 hours, I may have to get other people to fill time slots ect. Too much hassle for what I wanted to do and I don’t even know how much that would cost for all the equipment to set that up.
- Do regular mix tapes – every week release a new mix tape out on Mixcloud / Soundcloud. I do mix tapes anyways but I didn’t want to be Spamming my own Mixcloud account with random mixes every week, I would rather keep it to the mix tape series that I have going on.
- Make a Podcast – record a podcast and post it up. Allows me to work when I want, post it up when I want and people can listen or download when they want. Recording a podcast is as simple as recording a mix tape and I could treat it has a show which would allow me to talk within the podcast.
I done some research on recording, looked at finding the best place to upload it, started to think of names and what else I can do to make it sound professional.
Couple pictures from the planning stages
Start of november 2015 was the very first episode and I have now been doing for over a year and do not plan on stopping any time soon.
