SOLARCITY AKA Allan Dean
SOLARCITY is the stage name i use for fronting my music. So who is SOLARCITY then? The man behind the music of SOLARCITY is Allan Dean, hailing from Scotland / UK. My musical past is now very varied and i have over the last 9 - 10 years had a lot of tracks over various music hosting sites, but I have kind of settled here on the cloud, to date i have roughly 5,500,000 downloads in total which I am chuffed with as it means my music is getting out there and obviously listened to, which is my goal.
I like a lot of styles but usually prefer the electronic / synth genre and listen to anything from Kraftwerk / Tangerine Dream / Andy Pickford / Synthetik / Gary Numan / Vangelis / JMJ / I also like classic C64 SID chip tunes from the masters like Rob Hubbard and Martin Galway etc, right up to modern cult artists like Armin Van Buuren, Daniel Kandi, Super8 & tab, Above & Beyond, Rank 1 and Ferry Corsten, the list is endless!!!....all these bands have influenced my musical style and approach greatly.
SOLARCITY's vision combines the driving forces of trance / electronic / synth music and shakes them into the ultimate electro cocktail with hard, fast and kicking basslines and drums with soaring lead lines and melodies................ all of these elements when combined make the tracks memorable and foot tapping at the same time! (I hope...lol)
So for 2013 i look forward to seeing what this year brings sonically both professionally in what i buy / listen to and amateur production wise in what i create, all the best everyone:) I feel this is also a transition year as I lost a lot of data and sounds due to a computer crash, because of this I have new sounds and a new vision, who knows what changes will happen??
My Doctor Who remix which was done for a bit of fun has had a huge amount of exposure. Here is the link for the track: http://whomix.windbubbles.net/api/remix/download/262.mp3
To date i have had 7 tracks signed to 2 small euro labels as SOLARCITY and have been featured on iTunes, Audiojelly and Junobeats etc, but as for the future who knows??....this so far has definately been a hobby more than a career aspiration, my love of music comes first before all, enjoy the ride:)
Here is a link to my YouTube page, this one takes you to SECOND STAGE, but from there you can access all of the uploads, cheers!!!!
*** TO ALL MY SOUNDCLOUD FRIENDS, PLEASE NOTE I AM NOT BEING IGNORANT, I JUST ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS NEW LOOK SOUNDCLOUD AND CANNOT FIND MY WAY AROUND AS EASILY AS THE 'CLASSIC' VIEW, I FIND THIS LOOK MUCH HARDER TO FIND COMMENTS / FEEDBACK ETC, PLEASE BE PATIENT LOL!!!! ***
