Astronomar’s Horoscope Readings #3

Gemini
Your social activity was crazy last week; keep up the good work!

Libra
Don’t forget that legends need to eat too. If you are going to bootleg a classic track, at least buy the original off Beatport.

Aquarius
You’ve accomplished a lot so far this year! Remind your followers with a #TBT post.

Aries
If your guest list gets messed up this coming weekend, don’t even trip. Just accept the GA wristband; your boys will sort you out once you’re in the club.

Leo
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can teach an old DJ how to reach younger fans with Internet humor. Don’t hesitate to share memes with your older DJ pals; they’ll thank you for it later!

Sagittarius
Switch it up this week. Take a Lyft to the club instead of an Uber.

Taurus
As we age, our tastes mature and you want your hospitality rider to reflect that. Jazz up your rider with a wine & cheese spread.

Capricorn
As always, communication is everything; even with your fans. You should take a moment to respond to all of your fan mail in your Soundcloud inbox… Wu-Tang is for the children! (Sooooooooo!)

Cancer
Presentation and accessibility go a long way. Make sure your Soundcloud metadata is on point.

Pieces
If you’re in a group chat with a bunch of DJs you don’t know very well, use some reserve when expressing your thoughts on your others; disaster is only a screenshot away.

Scorpio
Time to update your press kit!

Virgo
Keep in mind that every big promoter started out as an intern handing out fliers in front of nightclubs. Be polite and say “no thanks” to the kid trying to give you a flier for Lightning In a Bottle as you leave the club this week; he may be booking you for a show in a few years.

“Autograf got the finesse, they got the funk, they got the flava. The three F’s right there…”

Words straight from the legend Fatboy Slim himself if all you need to know about the new flip from Chicago duo Autograf. A kick back swag with just enough bounce, clap, and funky bass to get the party started. Vibes run high with this one, with influences of Breakbeat, trip hop and house for good measure. Listen below and grab it when it drops June 1st!

The UK born collaboration of Chris Lake & Chris Lorenzo struck us right in the feels at the end of last year with their Wicked Games cover, and now take things into the club with their new original “Piano Hand”. Premiered by Annie Mac on her BBC Radio 1 Show, “Piano Hand” features a slick bass line groove, quirky cut­up vocal samples, and a very speed garage­-influenced sound very characteristic of Chris Lorenzo. Listen below, and pick it up today on Beatport!

“It’s a four minute twenty five second rippling beat opus that soars and whooshes but holds down the tempo, using the keys and the Armand Van Helden­esque beat builds and rave snares to push it into the strobelights.” – ­DMC World Magazine

Astronomar’s Horoscope Readings #2:

AriesIf your weekly party is a bit slow this week, don’t take it out on the few people that showed up. Maybe they were one of the few attendees that retweeted you.

GeminiDon’t sugar coat your bio; just because a big DJ downloaded from your private link doesn’t mean that they are supporting your track.

CapricornTry not to name drop this week; you may have an encounter that will make you feel foolish if you say the wrong thing.

SagittariusDon’t let your insecurity stifle your progress. Much like WeTransfer links, sometime the best things are only available for a small window of time.

LeoIf you find yourself in a Twitter beef, get your point across clearly then let your silence speak. It’s important to use negative space not only in your tracks, but in your timeline as well.

CancerBe careful of the person that comes up and train spots every track you drop; and certainly do not accept any drinks from them. Sure Irish Car Bombs are hella good, but how are you gonna feel when you are puking in the bathroom, your ride is long gone an your USBs are missing?

Pisces – If you find yourself in need of a good laugh this week, just look at the the soundcloud accounts of negative commenters.. LOL they ain’t doin shit! Keep your head up homie!

AquariusEverything comes full circle. If you are looking for tracks to spice up your set this weekend, look back into the past for some forgotten classics. the new kids won’t know what it is and will assume it’s a dub

LibraIf you find yourself spending more & more gig money on Ubers when it’s obviously a walkable distance, save your money and walk and use the extra loot to boost the post promoting your next gig.

ScorpioDon’t always take things at face value. just because some DJ has insane social stats that doesn’t mean that anyone who actually matters respects them or fucks with them.

TaurusIn order keep your output strong this week, you need to know your weaknesses. pay for proper mastering instead of sending out home masters; the chances of getting a spin from Diplo or Skrillex are infinitely higher if your track sounds great.

VirgoNever lose your experimental spirit. try a new softsynth or compressor this week.

We kick off this festive Tuesday with a new weekly series from Main Course mogul Astronomar…. introducing his Horoscope Readings – each week we will giveaway a new track from the label, while Astronomar and special guest Hasse De Moor personally gives astrological readings for DJs & producers alike. Our first track is Astronomar’s rework of Armand Van Helden’s classic “Work Me! (Gadamit)” – grab it below via ToneDen and prepare to be mesmerized by your weekly horoscope reading!

Armand Van Helden – Work Me! (Gadamit) (Astronomar copycat re-drum)
I love the original track so much, but wanted a beefier version for the club.. so I made an edit mimicking all the sequencing, but added some heavier drums.. enjoy!

Astronomar’s Horoscope Readings #1:

Scorpio:
You may feel like collaborating, but finishing solo projects might be the thing that will maintain a balance in your output

Capricorn:
Be grateful.
The sting from a hair being pulled out by a wristband is a small price to pay for a night of free partying.

Libra:
Stay humble; don’t become a dick just because Skrillex played your remix at Ultra main stage.

Leo:
Take a moment to realize what side of the fence you are on.
The DJ booth if for the DJ. If you aren’t DJing or the DJ’s manager you have no business in the booth.

Aries:
Take your chances; You will never know if he’s down to repost your new track if you don’t ask him.

Cancer:
Take note of the liberties you’ve earned while social climbing ; just because you know the promoter doesn’t mean you can ask for a +4 one hour before the club opens. Thats just rude and you know better. This isn’t your first rodeo.

Aquarius:
Patience is key, people will respond to your promos.

Virgo:
Maintaining a balance is really important for you this week.
It might be a good idea to have a glass of water between every double shot of Fireball.

Pisces:
If it is uniformity you seek, maybe cutting in line because you “know the DJ” isn’t a good look. Keeping things in order will bring a certain level of peace to your life.

Taurus:
Communication is vital for you this week.
Don’t be afraid to reach out to your favorite DJs for feedback on your new track.

Gemini:
Get to know people! You don’t want to be asking yourself; “Does he really want to bootleg my track, or does he just want my stems?” The answer should be obvious if you know the person asking.

Sagittarius:
Be driven but don’t force it; asking people at the club to follow you on Soundcloud is a no-no!

Sydney based Acaddamy has picked up huge momentum on the airwaves thanks to his single “I’ve Been Waiting” on EtcEtc Music, but now gets a huge overhaul in the remix department by Portland based Jason Burns. Taking the haunting vocals of the original, Jason Burns dives into darker territory as he’s known for – giving it a taste of garage and a deeper bassline. Aside versions from MSCLS and Lyndon Kidd, the Jason Burns cut is our clear front runner on the package.

And we’re not the only ones hyped on it – the remix already has early support from AC Slater, Kokiri, Yuri / Database (Kitsune), Vaden (Rinse FM), Ookay, LCAW, Ben Drumsound (Drumsound & Bassline Smith), Chuckie, Icarus.
