I've been creating music since March 2014. Now I've finally started, I can't stop!
Check out my https://soundcloud.com/dacca/sets/milestones playlist for key moments for me along the way since then.
Thank you for visiting my page - I hope you find a track or two that you like. Check out my playlists for different genres.
I do enjoy musical collaborations, and here are my collaborations playlists:
Let me know if you're interested in a collaboration anytime.
Plus tracks on my https://soundcloud.com/dacca/sets/open-all-hours-open playlist are available to do with as you please (though I still retain rights to the originals, and a credit would be nice if you use one!).
If you'd like to listen to my early "hits" try listening to my One Year On playlist from March 2015:
Or you can try my 50,000 plays Playlist from early Sept 2015:
A recent "mixtape" features tracks from Sept 2015 to Feb 2016, having passed 80,000 plays as I approach two years creating music and sharing on SoundCloud:
Or try this "one stop shop" for a dacca marathon 124 track playlist of the most popular tracks on my stream (shuffle play recommended) to celebrate my 100,000 plays:
I was born in Cyprus but grew up in and around Bath, England, and emigrated to Melbourne, Australia (twice) which is now my home. I'm Anglo-Scottish.
I have composed most of my music using GarageBand and a number of Inter-App / AudioBus compatible synths:
Yamaha Synth & Dr Pad
I also use Novation Launchpad for EDM / Dub Step / Trance / Downbeat etc
..the list keeps growing. Starting in December 2015 I upgraded to a new MacBook Pro and Logic Pro X - love it!
I use an iPad Air, a MacBook Pro, an Apogee mic and bought a Novation LaunchPad Mini keyboard to use with the Novation LaunchPad and LaunchKey apps. I use Procreate for my artwork, plus Fabrika app, Silk, and PulsART.
My music is generally a mix of world music, ambient, synthesiser / electronic (no kidding), and rock + metal plus some EDM etc as noted above. Probably I'd say rock and metal are my defaults to listen to, but my tastes are quite broad (chill, ambient, soundtracks, synthesiser / electronic, punk, jazz, blues, R&B, synth pop, general pop etc). I love music.
I'm a rocker, always will be.
My younger brother Pete was in a few punk-goth bands in the 90s, check out them on Strange Tall Songs on SoundCloud:
My older brother's son John is also on SoundCloud under the name Idle John, and even has an album out on iTunes.
