Al the the Tracks in the Discography section link produced and arranged in my home Studio, in a short time schedule. Al the Tracks are Live Mixed and Recorded on the Fly. These are my first composed electronic dance music tracks, with a short creation time about 4 a 8 hours. I will take more time for my future tracks, so that they are more versatile and mind-blowing.
WHY ELECTRONIC DANCE MUSIC:
At my early age of 6 years, I listened to Vinyl (LP) of my Dad called "Oxygen" of the Artist "Jean Michel Jarre". At that moment I loved the electronical music, I was lying on the ground in Front of the audio Speaker and dreamed away.
DISTINCT ABOUT MY STYLE:
Create dance music with a nice attractive beat between 136 to 138 bpm, combined with a dreamy flow sound trough out the song, or create experimental music with different mixed styles. All tracks with the main goal to create a unique sound.
FAVORITE ASPECTS OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC:
The possibility to create your own music with a setup of some computers and some hardware (not only for the rich people). And the most I love is the possibility to manipulate & create sounds in eternity.
OTHER MUSICIANS IN FAMILY:
My Cousin, Artist musician name: JiNX
He is also experimenting in his own home studio with electronical music. In the future we are going to work together as DUO to produce some nice tracks, the Artist names as a DUO will be "CASTOR SIX & JiNX UNITY".
GOALS IN ELECTRONIC MUSIC:
At this moment nothing concrete because it is still my hobby, but who knows in the Future? I am going to create a CD in my own management, but this while take some time, but that’s no problem, good en unique music takes some time to create!
My website is a goal that I have recently completed in my own management. Still working on it to perfect it. The website castor6.nl is created with the purpose to give (starting) musicians a look in the kitchen of “electronic dance music”
