Back in the Black

The perfect girl for DJ Moodswyng based on listening to the album Back in the Black

***yes, he included this pic***

DJ MoodSwyng envisions his vision of his own Back in the Black

“a smarmy hipster chic who either smokes, weed, cigarettes or cigars, drinks moderately/socially…wine and some Jack D, total cerebral type. We get at it with red and black lites with a strobe set to look like lightning while the album rocks loudly around us and she TOTALLY GETS THE MUSIC.”

– – DJ MoodSwyng

“We Can go Dancing”

“This is a solid track, and I think it’s perfect for a club setting…you’re talented at what you do, so keep it up!”

– – A&R Blog

“Just Look at Me”

“Love this Track great Job!!!!!

Send me a copy of this track … and I will put it in the mix on my show.”

Domino Grey “My Heart Never Skips a Beat” Remix EP by Dynamics Plus featuring DJ MIKI:

“The track sounds slick and professional. DJ Miki’s vocals are spot on, the production is likewise and the whole atmosphere just feels right. It’s very apparent that you know what you’re doing and doing it very well. There’s a big market for this sort of music and I think you have what it takes to make it big. I wish you lots of success and hope you’ll continue doing what you’re doing.”

“You’re My Addiction” [Featuring Stephanie kay and Shea the Doll Lizette]

“Hi Domino great song and sounds very catchy … I will keep it on file for the future.”

And so AVXP Music/Dynamica Music [My Vanity label] has shut down for 2011. That makes it clear for me to reflect on everything that has happened this year. I keep a huge calendar (a cheap one from Staples) and use it as kind of a loose journal to document what goes on for any given year. I’ll make it a sort of a scrapbook and glue ticket stubs, flyers and even bills in the day’s boxes. I keep a few printouts that have important dates like birthdays (I am very bad with dates) and have a sheet for goals or Resolutions.

It’s my habit to look it over on New Year’s Eve and gauge what percent of my ‘plans’ I’ve accomplished. This has truly been one hell of a year. I’ve spent more than a decade making underground/abstract hip hop and decided to dabble in other genres. I added live musicians to my production(s) and reconnected with my muse; Shea the Doll Lizette. As Domino Grey, I’ve been able to work with some really talented artists like DJ Miki, FarishaMusic, Stephanie Kay, Elina Milan and Donna S. I released a total of six projects including Get it Up, Lay it Down, Back in the Black, the My Heart Never Skips a Beat Remixes, Fallout Shelter, Butterfly Affect Part I and the Falling Planets Soundtrack.

My Heart Never Skips a Beat Flat Line Remix Featuring DJ Miki

Lonely Angel – Broken Halo Remix Produced by Dynamics Plus

Most recently, I finished the vocal recording of the Shea the Doll and Nae B FREE mixtape called The Take Over. So I’ve run the gamut from hip hop instrumentals, R&B joints to dance music – all in one year. Wow. I’m only hoping next year can run like this year and the Mayan calendar doesn’t run out just when I’m at my most productive.

A big thanks to everyone that supports my music and also my inner circle who keeps me on my toes when it comes to making the best music that I can. Blog sites like I Can’t Call it and ministori for the reviews. In 2012, I expect to finish a full Lenzmen album, more Dynamics Plus, Doctor Atomics and a few new characters will get their shine. What else? I guess that’s it. We’re early with the wrap up, but since everyone is already flipping for the holidays; let’ go in.

Oh snaps, I almost forgot. I got a free sampler, I’m running around with. It’s got all the singles from the albums of 2011. Hmm, if you want a download let me know what’s good. Crack at the kid on FaceBook.

Peace, love and Productivity from [Everything at] AVXP Music.

ministori Blog interviews DJ MIKI from Domino Grey’s Back in the Black

September 14, 2011 2 comments

♡ ✖ Beat

Welcome to the second installment in our series of interviews covering Domino Grey’s sophomore effort, Back in the Black. This time around I’m pleased to introduce my readers to Vancouver’s own DJ MIKI (DJ Miki, dj miki . . . Sorry, I’ve seen it depicted quite a few ways) ↓

She’s featured on track 8 “My Heart Never Skips a Beat” which was so well received it spawned its own EP which is already available on CDbaby and iTunes. After checking out her SoundCloud page I was definitely impressed with her numerous features and original compositions (Especially her Progressive House works, check them out!). I’m sure you’ll be equally intrigued after reading this ↓

ministori: Please tell us a little about your musical path and the creative process behind your songs.

DJ MIKI: Before I write my own music, I need to sit down and listen to some of my favorite artists and inspire from them. Nowadays, we all have sources where we inspire from. Sometimes, I even inspire from movies.

When I watch a really moving scene, I think about what kind of melody would suit the scene and I play it in my head. I also need to visualize when I am writing otherwise it doesn’t make sense when it’s all words on paper. My imagination is another source of inspiration when nothing else works. Music is very much like story telling and you always need a source of inspiration to tell a story. This is my thinking process. I have to have a story to tell my audience, otherwise I won’t feel like my music is getting anywhere.

ministori: There have been a myriad of DJ/Producers within the EDM scene, but very few DJ/Vocalist. How has the dynamic of being a DJ/Vocalist affected your song writing process?

DJ MIKI: To be a DJ, you really have to be willing to share your passion for music with the world. There are very few DJs out there who can be really versatile (producing music, who can do vocals, etc). I really wanted to stand out and be very versatile and use my talents. Being a DJ helps with my song writing process because the music I listen to and play in clubs give me inspiration to create music. I really love music that has emotional vibes. Music shouldn’t just make people dance but it should make people feel emotions.

ministori: Your vocals are featured on the song, “My Heart Never Skips a Beat”. Was there something specific going on in your life that caused you to create such an emotive song?

DJ Miki: I want my music to convey real emotions and feelings that my listeners can relate to and that is what I did with this song. This song is about having lost connection with someone I really cared and loved. But the connection was impossible to find due to some circumstances that got in the way. “My heart never skips a beat” is repeated a lot throughout the song, I wanted this line to signify that I haven’t lost hope yet and still wanted to find that connection with the person I was very fond of.

ministori: What else can you tell about DJ MIKI and what are your plans for the near future?

DJ MIKI: My Dj name is actually my nickname. That’s where it originated from. My passion for electronic music started in the late 90′s, and I was (and still is) a huge fan of Kylie Minogue. The musical talent and interest has always been there, as I went to music school when I was

12 years old, and I was playing the keyboard, piano and synth. I also went to dance and acting school for a couple of years, following Bachelors in Fine Arts in Theatre & Film Production at the University of British Columbia.  My plans for the near future are to create my own record label in the future and become a music producer. I really love the idea behind creating, arranging music, and working with a creative and talented team to make a masterpiece.

ministori: All the best with your future aspirations, Miki. Creating a label is huge! Can’t wait to hear where your skill and creativity take you.
