The 'Elpi5' name really started as an extremely low priority side project to work on music that I wanted to make. When I started producing and teaching for a living, my life became very saturated with music work (which is great, don't get me wrong!) but I found my ears tired by the end of the day. Making music recreationally became less of a priority. So whatever it was that I was going to work on, had to be very in line with my personality and what I like to hear naturally.
I quickly fell into this chiptune/EDM hybrid sound. It's always been very low stress and easy for me to make. It comes naturally, and at the end of the day, I think that's what an individual should look for in their sound.
With that said, I'm very excited to announce that it looks like my second release is starting to take shape. It started out as a couple tracks here and there - just casually - but now that I'm listening to them side by side, it's starting to sound like a collective.
Anyways, along with this announcement, as always you can download any of my music at a 'pay what you want' rate (yes, that includes free), so feel free to download on my bandcamp.
And finally, I want to ask - do any of my fellow artists have any advice on releasing music on Steemit? Has anyone done it successfully? I'm open to the idea but as of right now I have no idea what that format would look like. But I have to say, I'd be interested to know if that may be a cool option! Let me know in the comments.
