Angelo Raguso, alias FAW9. Italian Based. One of the most tech-minimal / tech-house music producers with hundreds and of official tracks published on the best Labels in the world, such us Freakin909, Lapsus Music, Hotfingers, Spinnin’ Records, just to name a few. Today he shares some tips with us on some tips you should have if you decide to be a music maker
Hi Angelo, how are you today?
A little busy, I’m at work for a new project to be published for the coming year, we never stop even during the holidays!
You are a hard worker! Congratulations! Years ago you released into one of the most known EDM music labels in the world: Spinnin ‘Records – what has changed since then?
I loosened my grip a bit after publishing on Spinnin ‘Records with my friends Camilo Valderrama and Stamen. Before I published more constant stuff, regardless of the quality sometimes, but then I set limits, or release less frequent but quality music. “Enjoy The Deep“, the single we released, was a real success, so I started to publish step by step on labels more and more famous in the music business, for example with Nicola Assi I published an EP on Natura Viva, which contained the remix of David Amo (pioneer of tech-house music in duo with Navas), then another EP on Hotfingers, containing the remixes of George Privatti & Guille Placencia, and Jesus Nava (which were both played by Umek), then I did a remix for Groovebox, Andrea Mattioli, Sascha Sonido, just for name a few, and so on other releases on labels known in the sector. It was a great step forward, unimaginable doors opened before I published on Spinnin ‘
What are the best tips for creating music as a real business?
If you believe it or not, if you decide to become a music artist in a professional way, it will be a real business. The music you make will be your product, your brand, your identity, YOU!
But to make people decide to buy your music instead of another producer, you have to make it reflect some strategic and important points :
- What’s your target? Deep House music for soft party? Trap / new school’s hip hop , then for teenagers? Hardcore Techno for heavy clubs? Choose the genre you fit better and work on it as well without changing that much, for example, if today you publish a single GOA-PSY TRANCE, tomorrow you will not be able to publish an EP of classical music! You must have your own wave and never change it, or at the very least, don’t go too far, or you will lose credibility
Build a team around you :
- You must have a media presence, so it means that you will have to be present on social networks, so you will need someone to take care of your Facebook and Instagram page, have a website etc, a photographer for professional photos (which are the online vision that people will have about you), A manager who takes care of the most bureaucratic aspects, or how to organize an event, how to have contact with record labels, manage requests for collaboration etc
- If you plan to pay others to handle parts of your business and marketing, it is important you still educate yourself in these areas and know what to expect from them. You may hate the business aspects, but you still need to be informed and educated to make the right business decisions for your career.
These are my recommendations, they have helped me a lot in 10 years of career, so I feel like sharing them with you.
Thanks for the interview, it was a pleasure
Thank you, Angelo was a pleasure to share our journey with you!
Virtual Birthday Planning and Buying Birthday Gifts for Teens During The Pandemic
Birthday parties are an important part of teenage years. Birthday parties do not just celebrate the teenager’s life, it is a great way for the teenagers to form stronger bonds with their family members and form a greater friendship with their friends. During teenage years, friends form a large part of their life and friends’ opinion matter a lot to them, birthday parties create a great avenue for them to socialise and interact within their own social circle.
The current pandemic situation has transformed everyone’s daily lives. In order to flatten the curve, countries worldwide have been imposing strict measures such as self-quarantine, social distancing measures and even more drastic measures such as lockdown. This has changed the planning process for birthday parties for teens to a virtual birthday party.
The preparation for organizing a virtual teen party is largely like that of the physical party. Some of the changes include the following. Firstly, the theme and decoration need to be tailored to be suitable for virtual parties. Some of the themes include online gaming party, movie party, live DJ and dance party.
Secondly, e-invites are sent out instead to the guest list and a conference ID such as zoom link is included instead of the venue of a physical location. Lastly, games to be played must be suitable for virtual party as well, which is able to include the guests onscreen. There are several fun and exciting games that people can play at virtual parties to entertain the guests and keep them engaged. These games include the traditional bingo, Pictionary and charade when web cameras are in place.
Besides birthday preparation, gifting is slightly different too. Whether the teens are age 13 or 17, many of them no use online shopping and birthday gifts for the male teenagers are more geared towards their current stay at home lifestyle.
One of the more popular ones relate to subscription gifts. Receiving a gift on a monthly basis delivered to their doorstep brings them warmth and smiles during the current self-isolation period. It gives the teens something to look forward to and remind them of their friendships that they have. There are different types of subscription gift ideas to consider, such as vitamin subscription for the fitness fanatic, Disney+ subscription for the Marvel fan or even gaming subscription for the avid gamer, which is one of the most popular gift ideas for teenage guys age 17.
Gadget gift ideas is another popular birthday gifts to present to the birthday teens especially during current times. During this quarantine period, teenagers use technology to help them stay connected via their social media and keep themselves entertained through gaming interests. Gadget gift ideas include a set of noise-cancelling headphones, new Xbox or a cool and chic mobile charging pad.
In conclusion, virtual birthday parties and birthday gifts suitable for the pandemic situation will still bring a smile to the birthday teens and fun to the guests at the party.
