I’ve spent so much of my life making legitimately weird music. See my algorithmic music on bandcamp for that. So it’s only natural that at some point I would go completely in the opposite direction, and that time is now.
Lately I have just been loving pop music. I love listening to it. I love making it. It’s just fun. When making music in a pop style it’s really easy to find collaborators. After all, most musicians are trying to make “pop” in one way or another. And the collaborations usually run along predefined lines. e.g. “I’ll make the music, and you do the vocals.”
So that’s what I’ve been doing lately. Tons of collaborations on tons of fun pop songs. Here’s my latest on Spotify with Drizztopher Walken.
And these collaborations push me to explore more of my own ideas too. My daughters started listening to Galantis recently, a group that I fell in love with a few years back. And those two things have pushed me to make fun, danceable pop, and to even try to include my daughters (who are aged 2 and 4). Here’s my latest on SoundCloud with special appearances by both of my daughters.
So what does this say about me? Am I going to make pop for the rest of my life? Do I have bad taste in music? I don’t know. For know, I know that I’m having a lot of fun making pop.
