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:
You may feel like collaborating, but finishing solo projects might be the thing that will maintain a balance in your output
The sting from a hair being pulled out by a wristband is a small price to pay for a night of free partying.
Stay humble; don’t become a dick just because Skrillex played your remix at Ultra main stage.
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.
Take your chances; You will never know if he’s down to repost your new track if you don’t ask him.
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.
Patience is key, people will respond to your promos.
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.
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.
Communication is vital for you this week.
Don’t be afraid to reach out to your favorite DJs for feedback on your new track.
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.
Be driven but don’t force it; asking people at the club to follow you on Soundcloud is a no-no!
