The $5+ Patreon rewards are out: Jabun's "3rd September 1939", BTTB's "Get A Haircut [Radio Edit]" which was featured on BBC Introducing (Patreon exclusive download) + an in depth look into BTTB's "You've Got A Lot To Say" for the $10+ patrons!
Hi everyone and Happy Halloween! Hope you've had a great week so far and have fun plans for tonight if the spooky holidays are your jam. It's been a pretty hectic week here at JabunAudio, mainly sorting out the next set of Patreon rewards as well as filling in an obscene number of spreadsheets for PRS and PPL registrations (and more admin work), but that's all done now which means this afternoon I should be able to get back to setting up the studio, which has made just a little bit of progress over this past week. Thankfully I've found some time to keep inspired on the guitar and other instruments, but I'm hoping to get to a lot more of that soon! Not much apart from that to report this week, other than that the latest set of $5+ Patreon rewards are out! Let's get to that:
Yesterday was the final Wednesday of the month which means another set of Pateron reward posts for the $5 and $10 patrons are out, and this time we're heading into 2013 continuing the Jabun back catalog of music with another remix-contest track: "3rd September 1939"! I'm also sharing a bonus Patreon/Radio exclusive Better Than the Book track this month: the radio edit of "Get A Haircut" which was featured on BBC Introducing! Just a little extra reward but I hope you enjoy it!
Onto this month's Jabun track, "3rd September 1939" was created back in February 2013 for a remix context which if I remember correctly was to promote the release of some sample packs. Unlike last month's track which was an actual remix of a pre-existing song, this time contestants were given royalty-free stems to compose with and my entry was the track below. Back then I was still experimenting with finding my own voice as Jabun and remix contests like this are always fun opportunities to experiment with new styles in a low-pressure "have some fun" environment. I wouldn't say I'm completely happy with this one but there are a tonne of elements I do like and it was a great learning experience back in the day! I hope you get a kick out of it at least, and without further wait, here's "3rd September 1939"!
Onto the bonus Better Than The Book Patreon exclusive download: I have the radio edit of "Get A Haircut" which was featured on BBC introducing earlier this month. It's nothing too exciting in that it's the same as the album version apart from having the word "prick" muted (at the request of the BBC) but as my closest supporters I thought the patrons would appreciate a download of it! Check out the album version of Get A Haircut on Bandcamp:
For the $10+ patrons, I'll be diving deep again into the creation of another track from Better Than The Book's recent "Hopes and Dreams" album, the solemn number on the album "You've Got A Lot To Say" (which you can listen to via the player above too)! Become a $10+ patron to access that article and many more now, and remember that you'll gain access to all historic rewards and posts for your Patreon tier too when you become a supporter! With the new REWARD ARCHIVE tag it's never been easier to catch up with all those posts and music downloads you've missed too! I hope you enjoy them!
That's it for this month's rewards and for this blog post too! The $1 Patreon rewards will be out next Wednesday (Mp3s and artwork for the two $5 reward tracks), and it's the beginning of another month too which means more goal setting and reflecting to share! Until then, I hope you have a great Halloween and start to November and thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio and my various music projects! Take care!
