past Sunday I played at a party near Verona.
The place was a private house where the owner built a space to make parties with friends. The room is decorated with wall paintings and a super cool light system. It feels very cozy to play there.
After a good year, they started to arise the interest of more than just their close friends, and past Sunday the place was packed! What a great satisfaction must be for the organizers.
I had a lot of fun playing and great feedbacks from the people.
Apart from this, while I was chatting with a guy there, he asked me this question: “Do you consider house music, minimal music or club music in general art?”
And now I turn the question to you, do you think the music we make is art? I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
I would say it depends on how you treat it, how much respect you have for the music you make, but I will go deeper on this topic in next week email.
Today I want to take the chance to inform you that I uploaded a new project, a new sample pack and new presets and MIDI loops for the Minimal Improvements community members.
This time I really love the track I made for the project, you can listen to a preview here.
And if you want to get the files, enroll in our Patreon and start improving your music today!

FROM THE WEB
1 – Make 90s Future Jazz / Downtempo
Thought-Forms is going to be another of my favorite You Tube channels as it explores, in his different videos, the electronic music genres from the 90s. If you like pads and old school sound, it’s the channel for you. In this video he shows us how to make Future Jazz/Downtempo music.
2 – What Being “Full Time” Actually Looks Like (Why Freelancing Isn’t For Everyone)
Making music full time (also for other people) might seem the best job in the world but there are things that we should know before taking this career path. In this video I think there are some good point to think about.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Here I share what I’ve been listening to lately both from the house music world and from every other genre.
I will keep feeding this section of my newsletter, with the hope you enjoy it.
1 – HOUSE/MINIMAL HOUSE MUSIC
A house music classic: Lost Pearls by Mayaku (Bandcamp link)
2 – OTHER GENRES
Did you know Bon Iver recorded his most famous album “For Emma” in a mountain cabin, alone, using only a mic (the Shure SM 57)? This is a good reminder that it’s not about the gear. This is one of my favorite songs from that album: “Flume” (Spotify link)
Always be curious towards new music, you never know where inspiration comes from.
