Happenings

Well, it’s been a busy time, y’all!  I can’t complain, because it’s also been very good.  Besides the shows I have coming up in Austria and Germany, I also have a new DJ residency here in Detroit.  Wallshaker’s sub-label, Cherry Juice Recordings (www.cherryjuicerecordings.com) is finally taking shape, with the white labels to our first release (Laurent & Lewis: “MOTION”) in hand.  

As for Detrevolution, it’s selling very well – especially in Japan.  I sent another order to Japan yesterday – and from what I hear, it’s been on backorder.  I also sent more “Hateful” remixes too.  

“Tears” is being released on Subject Detroit.  I’m VERY excited about that record!  So far, the entire buzz has been great.  What I DO hope, however, is that people remember where “Tears” came from…  Where did it come from?!  Detrevolution…  

MYSPACE is some good shit…  If you feel like linking to me, please do so:  www.myspace.com/aaroncarl.  I like the networking aspect of it.  However, I don’t really care for that MP3 player – it’s so restrictive.  What if I wanna put MORE than 4 songs online at once?  Well, I’ll do what I do best.  Use my OWN shit…  That’s how www.aaroncarl.com was born!  

D.D.V.  has still not contacted me about adding Wallshaker – are you surprised?  But instead of being bitter about it, I’ll do what I said I’d do the last time.  Put my catalog back online.  Sell it myself.  

Now here’s my question…  There are so many online stores now, which one do you choose?  Which one is the best?  I’m already a part of Beatport.com and Juno.co.uk.  I’m a part of CD Baby, and ITunes as well.  Is it good to be a part of so many online places?  Or should I just stay centralized in ONE location?  

Oh yeah…  Before I leave, I have to tell you what I found over the weekend!!!  I’ve found some videos of my past performances, and OH MY GOD was I laughing!!!  They’ll be posted online at my website soon – I’ve figured out how to upload these bitches, so y’all can watch and laugh too.  (  

PS:  I was skinny as hell!  LOL!!!  

The guys at Command Your Soul (www.commandyoursoul.com) have also posted a video portrait of me during my last visit to Vienna.  Oh man, talk about FUNNY!!!  My friend Jim (from France) saw the video and said “that is SO YOU!”  I can’t wait to return there.  Next time I go, I’ll remember three very important rules:

  1. Just because you pay 25 cents to pee in the “Opera Toilet” does NOT mean the toilet will sing Opera to you.

  2. “Weiner-In” is a woman’s magazine – not a sexual position…

  3. Make sure you bring MORE THAN ONE JACKET, because I swear to God, I was there for an entire week – and it looked like I wore the same outfit all the damn time…  HAHAHHAHHA!!!!!  Now I understand why Divas have so many costume changes.  (Watch and learn, AC…  Watch and learn…)

Oh man!  I was in a pretty bad mood when I started writing this, but now I feel so much better.  I hope I made you smile!

Talk to you soon,
Love
AC

holà beautiful!
well, i'm having to be stingy with the white labels, since everyone wants one!
incredibla that this record shop people say "i love the record, it has potential, but our clients prefer dutch shit and i won't sell any, so we won't take any". welcome to the industry, as you said!
bisous d'amsterdam!
