Do You Get Tired (of Hating Me)

For the longest time now I have been wanting to do a video album project. Instead of throwing a bunch of songs together and then picking one for a video, I decided to create these tracks and videos as a complete piece. At the end of it all I would like to release the video album under the artist name LID. The completed works will be titled "Life Was Wonderful..."

I decided to fearlessly release the pieces one by one online and compile them later. The first one is the video below titled "Do You Get Tired (of Hating Me)". Originally I had planned on doing a scratch vocal track and having one of my friends redo the vocals, but as I imagined the concept of the video while finishing the track, the scratch seemed to fit.

The concept was of a guy singing through the answering machine of his ex. Somehow I thought that a puppet singing from a room in a hospital added some dark humor to the track and I wanted this comic-like whining tone to his voice as if he was going to cry any moment. I wanted to have fun with the track and video and not take it too seriously as that is the tone I want to take with the completed works.

I thought the piece was funny when I was doing it, but everyone has a different sense of humor. Enjoy.

DJ Leon Lamon't s Crate Confessions #6

Dear followers,
It’s literally been a month since my last Crate Confession.  I make no apologies because life happens and MFs get busy.  I’m not hating or being salty, I’m just saying.  Anyway, children, uncle Leo is going to take you way back and, since it’s been a minute, do more than one track for this confession session.
1. Reflections - Diana Ross & The Supremes

I grew up on Motown music because my parents are huge fans and my dad is straight up borderline fanatical when it comes to Motown music.  My dad has the popular Motown stuff and the obscure Motown stuff.  Example: If it weren’t for my dad, I wouldn’t have known that Tommy Chong of the famous Cheech & Chong was a musician that put out a record on Motown before becoming a famous comedian.  That being said, I’ve yet to hear a Motown track that I didn’t like.  Reflections, like so many other Motown songs, has amazing song structure and chord choices (things I knew nothing about when I first heard the song as a kid). …

Beginner DJs and Buying Gear

A question I am asked often by beginner DJs is, “What gear should I start off with?”  This is a tough question because the answer depends on what type of DJ-ing you are doing and where you have visually projected yourself in the future.  The first question I have is, “Are you DJ-ing for fun or for money?”


If you are DJ-ing just for fun, then your choice of gear is irrelevant.If fun truly is the name of your game the options are many.There exists facial recognition software that enables you to use your face as a MIDI controller, there are ways to hack into your Xbox Kinect so that your whole body can be used as a MIDI controller, and there are countless new desktop controllers coming out everyday for computer DJ software.Then there are the practically outmoded CD players.Of course there is also the wagon wheel of DJ technology…the turntable.It’s really just a matter of preference and what level of frustration you want to experience while learning to DJ.The quick of it is: Software = fas…
