New edm music / trance mixes by JC on the way.
From edm and trance music projects i am working on at the moment to my Love is the Answer or @LITA episodes show, JC EDM DJ has been pretty busy lately.
I uploaded a test episode and a brief you tube video of what i am trying to do when it comes to live performance DJ ing. I may need another pair of fine ears and knob twiddling hands to make it truly work better. But that said it instantly ranked 38 in the EDM MIX chart on Mixcloud. This tells me 2 things…….mixcloud either use a computer and an algorithm to figure out where to chart things, if this is the case then i beleive i charted just on the strenghth of the originality and the on the spot song creation in the mix. Or they do have a pair of ears to listen and to rank your mix….if so again they are definately looking for something different and fresh to place it in the chart after a few hours of posting. Either way TY MIXCLOUD for listening and putting me in the top 40!
Here is a brief list of my priorities…….Thank you Brian Hazard @colortheory for you blog passivepromotion.com which not only gave me alot of insight into music mastering but has lots of absolute gems of knowledge which he has shared in a very graphical and analytical way about market reach and social networking and i feel it is a must for any EDM or DANCE or any genre musician who is looking to build a strong social profile. I would also like to thank Brian for replying to my detailed and almost interrogation email of which his response was very useful and so much appreciated, butr i know it took time and i know your workload is crazy Brian sothank you so much.

Edm music DJ ing writing, production and prioritization.
Brian gave me much insight and a lot of direction on what to focus on with the multitude of projects i have.
Here is a quick rundown on what i have going on and if anyone from my social networks reads this and thinks ” NO JON YOU SHOULD FOCUS ON THIS ” then i would be glad to know so contact me however you want. I openly invite encouragement , direction and good ideas and my twitter #EDMFamily has many great musical brains in so please follow and get in touch.
1. My Song “Love is the Answer” Its a trance song essentially but i have many ways to mix it down as a mainstream edit. Its Very much on the way to completion with my vocals but i have a new vocal talent who has a soft voice of an angel and she loves the song and make edm what a find! So i think with her voice on the track and with the endless studio hours i am prepared to put into this project to make it a BIG dance tune. I think if i get it right it could be another DANCE FLOOR CLASSIC for years to come. But it stays in the box (at least in full) until i am happy with the sound. I want to create a instrument out of vocals which is no small feat but i have the skills to make that happen.
2. LITAepisodes – Having uploaded a vid and put the 1 man mix up on Mixcloud, i am very happy with where that is heading and a little unique twist on the role of a DJ. I will be uploading more DJ sets as i have removed some popular files from my site for copyright reasons. I will be posting those EDM Mixes very shortly but want to redo them Better and add with more of my on the spot trance writing to the performance – in particular “Lexi’s MIX” which got a big thumbs up and has been requested by many, again i want to build in my own live trance into this so im working on this mix. This is where #LITAepisodes is heading.
I would love a second pair of tech minded edm music / trance music dj producer hands with an ear for music and is no stranger to resonator and cutoff knobs just to make these episodes easier to produce. Again if your interested and are in the Grand Rapids / West Michigan Area I think this could step up DJ ing a level….so it again could be big.
Remastering and engineering old electro dance music and edm classics
3. OLD Electronic Dance Music I have archived. I have Hard drive after Hard drive of mash-ups Remixes spanning 15 years all over old discs.
I would like to Remaster the Music from these old files and put them out as remixes / mashups. They need some brightening up but with the likes of Benni Benassi, Brittant Spears and Ciara to name a few in my remix collection i might as well put them up to show i’m not just a 3 trick pony!
SO, If you have some talent and live near me get in touch ONE because i need help with #LITAepisodes and TWO because I can produce trance music at a crazy rate! Its the finessing that takes the time 😉 and a collaborator is always good as a 2nd pair of ears.
Also, if you need advice about other things EDM related such as web presence etc…..my other talent just HOLLA!
Always here to help EDM writers and producers everywhere just HMU here or @joncoopermusic Song Request for #LITAepisodes just Private message me @joncoopermusic or @jcedmdj or even @LITAepisodes. I check them all and the latter two im sure will become more followed when i start knocking out Love is the answer episodes and hopefully take it to a live show at some point – when i get more hands.
BIG SHOUT TO MY FOLLOWERS ON TWITTER just follow me on FB and everywhere….LOVE YOU ALL……JON
