What about podcasts

Podcasts are more on a series of digital audio broadcasting that is done on the internet. These digital productions would often time come out as series, which makes you stay updated with whatever new stuff is coming. Most of the podcast music is brand new, indie, or something that you have not heard before. It’s a more updated version than a music blog.

What Club DJs Do While They’re Stuck At Home

Today, we are stuck in what is happening in the world, whether it is about our work or clubbing, the government-mandated us to stay at home for our safety and that is why there are a lot of people – workers or not are working and having fun at home.

There is also no doubt that people miss the outside world and enjoy the vibe of being in a club. Club DJs come up with a strategy that people around the globe still enjoy clubbing even if they are in their home. Since the pandemic or the outbreak sweeps the globe has shuttered once lively and vibey nightspots in different countries, the innovative DJs have started putting something on their performance through the use of the online platform so that clubbers won’t miss out.

This new trend of club DJs is one of the examples of how the virus – pandemic that which left some billions of people stuck at home under lockdowns and quarantine, is an upending daily life in ways unthinkable until the government imposes social distancing curbs to stem its spread across the globe.

Some DJs are doing online performances to enjoy and still feel the vibe of being in a club and that they can give some music to people especially in times of crisis. For example, a Connecticut club DJ is stuck in a quarantine groove at their home and comfort while their usual venues and actions are shuttered and have taken to the web waves with a full set of tunes. Their main goal is to make people across the globe smile and still dance whether they are in their kitchen area, dining, comfort rooms, and wherever they are despite the pandemic we are facing.

Moreover, some of the club DJs like Kevin Brown or also commonly known as DJ K-Otic has done an after-party event at a leadership conference in Springfield, Missouri. This DJ started doing what he loves and started doing it through webcasting from his own home and comfort – he first used only his phone up to a speaker and he then soon upgrade it to a piece of better sound equipment. And because of his action, many DJs also come up with the idea of having some online and live clubbing so that people across the globe will still enjoy the night club they deserved.

As DJs are saying, the time we had today is different and that we also have a different moment. People are using their music as a therapy in this time of crisis.

RIP Peter Green – His Legacy With Fleetwood Mac

His Journey Ends But His Legacy Remains

There are various talented artists all over the world. These artists also have different specifications or fields of expertise, and when we are talking about music or being a musician, Peter Green will always be a legacy in this kind of talent. 

Peter Green is a talented guitarist in the mid-60s blues bloom. He can always be lined up with talented artists like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. He is one of the best musicians and songwriters that wrote the most memorable blue-based songs of the 60s. With his talent when it comes in playing guitar, he made song genres with most imaginative guitar licks. With these accomplishments, he established his own brand, his own band that made records in the world. His own band outsell The Beatles and the Stones. 

The journey of Peter Green all started when John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers had an idea in recruiting some artists to cope with the absence of Eric Clapton. Then he and Mike Vernon, Blue Horizon label founder and producer spotted Peter Green on some gigs. They trained Peter Green for almost a week but Eric Clapton came back. This is the time when Peter Green came to audition in Mick Fleetwood’s band. 

Long story short, Peter Green still struggles on finding his own line in the industry but with the help of his gifted talent, people around him notice him and appreciate his presence. Sooner or later, he made his own brand in the industry. 

Years have passed and the journey of Peter has ended. Due to psychedelic drugs and mental illness, Peter Green dies at 73. On July 25, 2020, music enthusiasts, heavyweights, and Peter Green’s fans mourned as the news from his family and firm announced that the British guitarist died ‘peacefully in his sleep”. Many were broken hearted with this kind of news because we all know what Peter Green made in the music industry. 

Green’s hits with the band include “Black Magic Woman,” “Albatross” and “Oh Well”. “For me, and every past and present member of Fleetwood Mac, losing Peter Green is monumental!”. This is the statement of Mick Fleetwood given to The Times magazine. 

“My biggest regret is that I never got to share the stage with him,” said Stevie Nicks (statement provided by The Times). He is the singer and songwriter who joined Peter Green and Mick Fleetwood in the band in 1975. “I always hoped in my heart of hearts that that would happen. When I first listened to all the Fleetwood Mac records, I was very taken with his guitar playing. It was one of the reasons I was excited to join the band. His legacy will live on forever in the history books of Rock n Roll. It was in the beginning, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac and I thank you, Peter Green, for that. You changed our lives.”

It is true that the legacy of Peter Green in the music industry will never be forgotten by the people who truly loved him and by his words in every piece of song he wrote and left in the heart of everyone.
