Original tracks….progress update

Well it’s been a while since my last post and you might have noticed that I’ve not been posting as many new and old mixes up lately. Its for two reasons really – firstly I’ve been so busy with my day job – at the last count, since the end of April I’ve managed 10 separate events, visited 6 different countries and been an usher at a wedding!

The second and probably more concious reason is because of my step towards creating my own material, which as I’m sure you can probably understand is quite demanding and requires a lot of focus.

As way of an update, I’m currently waiting for a couple of fantastic singer / songrwriters to write and record vocals to two of the tracks I’ve created – so that is very exciting. I’m sure once I’ve got their input, the tracks may take a slightly different route to their current state, but they will be developed to totally fit the vocals that they lay down for me…..I’m hoping to be able to bring you more news on this in a couple of weeks.

At my last count I think I’ve got 5 other decent grooves going on just waiting to be developed by vocalists but I’m waiting on these first two and then I will take those others to the next stage.

Also, whilst all this is going on, I’ve got to do some boring stuff like register for PRS and MCPS so that I can get paid properly if my stuff ever gets out there and is bought on iTunes, played on radio, etc. Believe me, its a complicated business!!! Luckily, I’ve got some fantastic people around me – thanks Jim Jackson, Shaun Gallagher, Jamie Taylor, Geoff Allman, Mark Goddard, Colin Curtis, Terl Bryant & Dee Majek (and anyone I’ve forgotten to mention) – to give me some great advice not only on the tracks I’m developing but also on the business side too…

Couldn’t do it without you guys 🙂

Radio interviews…

Neil & Eli at Zero Radio

Neil & Eli at Zero Radio

Here’s the downloads for the two radio shows that I was on at the end of February. I had a really good time and can’t wait to go back…We had a great time with Jonny & Gino on Zero Radio….Eli also joined us for a while to talk about his new single ‘Soul Redemption’ and our collaboration…
Then it was over to the legend that is Mr Jim Jackson for two hours of remixes, mashups and crackin’ banter in the chat-room on Stomp.

I had a great time darrrnn sourrffff…

Well, I survived my weekend of madness in St Albans and Canvey…and what a weekend it was!

A big thank you to Jonny & Gino for having me on their Saturday Soulmine show on Zero Radio on Saturday – it was a blast and we gave a first play to the forthcoming West Coast Soulstars single – Soul Redemption. Hell, we were even joined in the studio by the main man himself, Eli Thompson. A great new track and a fantastic response by all who listened.

Tony, Mr Messy & Neil T

Then it was onto ‘Soul By The Jetty’ on the sea front at Canvey (is it the sea or the estuary???) and what a night it was!!  Lovely people, top music and quite a few beers were quaffed! It reminded me of a mini Caister!! I have to say a big ‘hi’ to all the lovely peeps there including (deep breathe and apologies if I miss anyone out): Mr & Mrs Goldsmith, Mick Love, JJ & Tez, Mark-Lee Horner, Jane, Reg & Lisa, Mr Messy, Tony Matthews & Roni, Gary Dennis, Sharon & Denise, Merv, Paul, Andy and not forgetting Mrs Julie Layton – especially as her and Jonny put me up for the night!! A fab night all round!!

Then on Sunday, I headed over to my old mucker’s radio show on Stomp – Jim Jackson, where we had a great time spinning some tunes, old and new, whilst shooting the breeze with all the lovely folks in the chatroom. The perfect way to end a perfect weekend. Thank you to all involved!!

Cheers, Neil T

Outstanding Beautiful Day (Neil T & Jim Jackson’s ReGrooved Mix) – Kenny Thomas & Randy Muller

My bezzie buddy and top DJ, Jim Jackson suggested this instrumental to me in September last year so I stuck Kenny’s vocal from ‘Outstanding‘ over it and here’s what happened…quite a rarity from me as I hardly do any mash-ups these days….
