interview Angelo Raguso aka FAW9

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!

How does acupuncture work? All you need to know

Acupuncture work

Chinese traditional medicine is considered very effective. It consists of many unique methods of treating diseases. Many countries around the world are studying these theories and are beginning to apply them in practice in their clinics. One of these methods is acupuncture. It helps cope with a large list of diseases as well as improve the overall condition of the organism. You can undergo the procedure at a Cross-Up Chiropractic clinic, which employs qualified specialists.

Briefly on the term “acupuncture”

Acupuncture (acupuncture) is an ancient Chinese treatment method. During the procedure, the patient is injected with special needles into the biologically active points. According to Chinese theory, it is believed that the Qi energy is flowing in a person, and only this energy can ensure good health. If it starts to stagnate, various diseases occur. There are over 500 such active points on the human body. They are all connected to each other.

Acupuncture helps:

  • reduce pain;
  • improve the condition of the skin, hair and nails;
  • restore normal hormone synthesis;
  • increase overall immunity;
  • to flush out all the toxins;
  • remove muscle cramps;
  • improve blood circulation.

Acupuncture can really help with a problem with any system of the body.

How does acupuncture work?

A course of acupuncture can only be performed by a specialist who has appropriate training and a license. A person must know when and in what place to insert needles depending on the disease.

The session usually takes place in the comfort of a warm, quiet place on a soft couch. The right amount of needles is injected into a certain part of the body (depending on the problem). The patient usually feels nothing and there is no pain. The session lasts for 15-30 minutes. Then the acupuncturist takes the needles out.

Three to 15 sessions may be needed to improve your health. Everyone feels differently after the treatment. Some feel relaxed and sleepy, others feel a burst of energy.

What can and can’t be done after the procedure?

Immediately after the session, it is recommended that you just lie down for 10-15 minutes and drink water. But these are not all the rules that must be observed. For the duration of the treatment and for two weeks after it, you can’t:

  1. Take any alcoholic beverages. Keep coffee and tea to a minimum. It is better to ask your doctor how much you can drink per day.
  2. Heavy physical activity. Many people feel so energized after the first sessions that they are ready to do something and exercise around the clock. This is not the way to do it. It is better to let the body rest.
  3. Strong drugs like antidepressants, painkillers, and antibiotics are forbidden. Before starting therapy, it is better to ask a specialist about the compatibility of medications and acupuncture.

And the most important point is that for effective results, you need to take a full course of acupuncture. Some patients see an improvement after the second or third time and decide that they have had enough. This is categorically not the way to do it. Only a completed course can benefit the body.
