MESSAGE FROM RALPHI - September 2005
you've gotta forgive me for not taking the time to update the
site, But unfortunately, I haven't gotten the okay to clone
myself yet. At the moment, Its kinda in the rough stages, and
well…When I can actually afford to have my clone, He'll pretty
much be doing all my paperwork, website updates, etc…Till then,
you may Have to deal with my lack of progress in cyberworld.
Between my own email, DJ Schedule, remix/production schedule,
once again has been a rollercoaster ride for me this year. I've
actually had some great work come out this year, and judging
from everyone's feedback and response, I'm quite pleased that
I've reached everyone spiritually through my hard work, production
and DJing! It tells me one thing; YOU'RE LISTENING!!!!
my highlights this year is no guess; PUSSYCAT
DOLLS. Who would have known? Actually, I did….LOL! No
kidding! When I first heard the song, I went bonkers.
to really do it for a few strong points/reasons:
1. The songs
lyrics mean lots of things, to lots of different people. Gay,
Straight, Lesbian, bisexual, whatever!! I thought it was a great
hook as well…
folks, its no brain science but "Don't cha" WAS A SONG! Did
we sing along to it? I know I did while working on it….It was
3. The song
was just, plain, fun. When was thee last time we experienced
the word 'FUN' while the record was buzzing around lyrically?
It's a rare breed, but fall is coming. And it DOES look promising
as far as new songs/stuff is concerned.
to say, "Don't Cha" adds another feather to my cap -
this time in a national/crossover setting. Thanks to all of
you for your support and love with this record. It actually
helped me believe in myself again.
around other people in the music business, and around fellow
friends/producers etc, they just SOMETIMES have a tendency of
sucking the life out of your creative work. They don't know
they do this, but the negativity that has plagued us in clublife,
dance music, the state of the actual music industry, has left
a lot of people dry, broke, and left with no desire to finish
off any sort of legacy. Thus having labels close, producers
no longer producing (even though they've created GREAT work
in the past), Djs enter rehab when they've always been aware
of the fine line they've been expose to constantly, and my peers,
fellow remixers and producers, just plain giving up It's a bit
sad when I cannot find my fellow producers whom = I've lived
for, and played for, disappear because of ONE BAD TASTE the
industry has left them. Lets grow up people! Nobody said life
was gonna be easy, or better yet, FAIR. Music is supposed to
be a creative and fruitful release, not a plague or disease.
note; I've worked on 2 of my favorite artists, and they was
NO CAN DO on them accepting The remixes:
"Bleed like me"
folks, its not the LABEL sometimes themselves accepting the
work, it's the actual ARTIST that has the last word/laugh. These
2 tracks are not coming out for commercial release, but you
guys already know, they're floating out there in cyberspace.
Best of luck finding them. LOL!! Just don't ask me for a copy…
I've already shelved them, and I've given up on them….Tisk…
Summer "I Got Your Love"
I did to this...I actually spoke with her on the phone!!!!!
She was great, funny, and I was verry nervous!!!!!! She went
back in the studio to re-sing some adlibs for myself and my
Bueller? Anyone, true or false? …Bueller? Love what I did to
this Classic track!!! It sounds creeepy as fuck on a big system.....)
myself and DJ Abel, are warming up the guns again....Watch out
for this "That sound" Part 2 monster..Yummy.)
time….Take care of yourselves people..Thanks again for all the
love and inspiration…. And if you're a muscle bear, send pictures!!!!…LOL!!!!
