A HUGE THANK YOU TO MY FANS!

Hi, I need to do this: THANK YOU, MY FANS for your unbelievable comments on my music and very surprisingly on my vocals! It feels like heaven! I just never dreamed about reading such great comments on my ReverbNation profile. Like the comments saying my vocals blew you away... That's really nice to hear and it gives me the power and courage to try harder and get better. All your words on my music mean very much to me. I promise I won't disappoint you in near future and that I come up with songs, you will enjoy as much as you enjoyed Night So Long or Natural. All for you! THANK YOU!!! ;-) Marek.

NEW SLIDESHOW "NIGHT SO LONG"...FLOODS IN SLOVAKIA...

Hi! So what have I been doing all the time?.... mmm... I only made a slideshow for Night So Long. First I wanted to draw some pics by myself and create a story. Then I wanted to put some photo's 2gether that would fit to the lyrics and then... Then I had an idea of making it as a slideshow, but with some original pictures. My friend Orion has always been taking beautiful pics of flowers. And I asked her for her pictures saying I would use them in my slideshow video for NSL. Happily, she agreed with that and voilaaaa... The video is here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sP84SGtrZjA I uploaded the video to my YouTube profile on Sunday, May, 30 and since then it's been viewed almost 80 times (!) which is quite unusual for me and it's my personal record! I believe that its popularity hasn't stopped yet. ;-) Credits: Lyrics by Tim Eldridge Music by me producers are I&SON and not forgetting THE BEAUTIFUL PHOTO'S TAKEN BY ORION! THANK YOU SO MUCH! MY FUTURE PLAN is to record some new songs with I&SON, plus I would like to do something special for you, too. I'm a little bit ill now, but I believe the plan will work out! The times are hard these days in my country, just like in the other Central Europe countries, because of the rain and floods. Those horrible pictures I've seen and the situation I was in yesterday.... My thoughts go to those, who lost their homes. Marek. http://tvnoviny.sk/bin/tv/?media_id=2157774

It's time to say THANK YOU!

Hello, after some time (since October...ooohhhh)I've decided to tell you the news about my music. But!... First of all I would like to say THANK YOU to the new people who have become my new fans here on ReverbNation.com! This is the moment I finally start to discover some fantastic music on RN. I never really paid too much attention to my RN profile. But music makes the people come together and that is so true! I'm hoping to get better in my "singing" and believing you will like my new stuff. Thanks to RN I got in touch with I&SON, who are now helping me with some songs. Our first song is called "Aloha My Love" and some more will follow soon. I don't know exactly what's my plan like, but I know I am growing up nicely step by step. Thanks for reading this, for becoming my new friends and for the beautiful music I've discovered on your profiles! All the very best! ;-) Marek.

Dietny blog

Zdravim opat, neviem sa dockat piatku. Z tohto tyzdna mam taku nafuknutu hlavu ako balon, a to som sa nemusel ani nadychat helia. Jednoducho je tento tyzden taky o nicom. Asi zapadam do stereotypu, este aj veci v robote sa stale opakuju a to ma uz vazne prestava bavit. Same bla bla bla a k tomu este aj moj "drahy" zriadovatel internetu si dovolil poslat mi upomienku za nezaplatie faktury, co ma vazne dozralo, pretoze nejaky debilny zamestnanec si nedokaze ani po vyhlaskovani mojho mena zapisat moj e-mail. A ja si mam teraz zliznut neschopnost takychto pracovnikov???!!! A to som potom e-mail opravoval este raz a stale nic. Bohvie, kam moja faktura putovala. Volal som dnes do tej super firmy a po stlaceni volieb na telefone, ktorych bolo asi milion tristo som sa konecne dopracoval aj k zivej osobe. Tej som problem vysvetlil, ona hned moje udaje opravila a nanovo mi zaslala moje faktury. Ja cely spokojny som to zlozil a povedal som si, ze chvalabohu a potom mi doslo, ze sice udaje to upravilo, ale ten pocit, ze sa mi v podstate v upomienke vyhrazali odpojenim internetu a zaplatenim pokuty z omeskania... Nie je to sice ziadna veda, ale osobnostne sa ma to dotklo. Ja, clovek, ktory si vzdy tieto veci vedel ustrehnut, a zrazu toto! A preco? Pre neschopnost zamestnancov v tejto kominarskej firme. Mal by si to odskakat niekto druhy. Pretoze seriozna spolocnost sa takto nesprava. Navyse mi v upomienke vysekali tri dni na zaplatenie sekom, co je maximalna hovadina, pretoze takto peniaze sa na ich ucet nestihnu dostat na cas. V jeden den sek pride, druhy treba poslat a na treti den ma odpoja, pretoze vtedy este peniaze mat nebudu. Veeelmi seriozne zaobchadzanie so zakaznikom! A to ste este nevideli ako mi zhovadzuju priezvisko, napriek tomu, ze som ich uz na to predtym upozornil. Postarka si musi mysliet, ze v meste byva niekto novy. Faktury som uz sice vyplatil priamo cez banku (lebo v takejto sibenicnej lehote som nemal cas hladat heslo od i-net bankingu), ale nic uz nezmeni na tom, ze ma napadli za nieco, co nebola moja, ale ich chyba. A stale mi to nejde do hlavy, ako sa zachovali a nic si neoverili. Pokuta bola sice smiesnych 1,66 €, ale to, ze zo mna urobili neplatica, ktoremu sa vyhrazali odpojenim od internetu, pretoze som za internet nezaplatil... JA! Ktory, okamzite chodi splacat seky, len co ich dostane. Hanbim sa... Hanbim sa za to, ze som sucastou tejto kominarskej firmy, a dufam, ze sa uz nic take nikdy nestane. Zajtra je "treti" den. Som zvedavy, ci si vsimnu, ze im na ucte pribudli moje peniaze. Pri ich serioznosti je to mozne. A ak ma nahodou odpoja, zaziju nieco, co este nezazili. Mozete si mysliet, ze toto je fakt smiesne o com tu pisem, ale ja vazne zurim. A mozno sa to ani neoplati viacej pitvat, pretoze taketo veci sa urcite stavaju "bezne" mnohym ludom. Vysledok vsak hovori o tom, kde maju taketo firmy svojich zakaznikov, ktori nie su ich panmi, ale obycajnymi nastrojmi a cislami, s ktorymi zametaju a z ktorych urobia tutmakov priam na pockanie... Ale to nie su asi ziadne novinky. No teraz som sa v tom aj utvrdil sam. HAWK.

"BLASTS FROM THE PAST" SONGS, LOL.

Hi there, I've decided to upload some of my older songs on here as some of them made a few people have an interest in my non-professional music. I'm about to upload mostly remixes and various versions of my songs, I only have to convert them, 'cos there are already some which are really xxxl remixes. Like the one for "I Would Only Know" or "I Can Save Your Name" (about 9 minutes)... The other songs' names are: "Svet okolo teba (The World Around You)" + remix "Morning Coffee" "Paralyzer" "False Friend" "TMD" remix "When I Danced With You" "What More Can I Say" "Nedokonali" original mix "You Butterfly" alternative dance mix... Meanwhile, I'll be trying to record the new songs I was talking about in my previous blog. I only wish I had more free time to do that. ;-) Thanks to whoever who is reading this (is there anybody?)! Good night! Marek Starx.

NEW SONGS ARE ON THE WAY

Zdravim, v (ne)dohladnej dobe sa chystam dat dokopy niekolko (podla mna) dobrych pesniciek. Ich nazvy su: "SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD" "WAITING SO LONG" a tiez mam pripravenych par melodii, z ktorych by mohli byt tiez celkom dobre pesnicky. "Waiting So Long" je piesen, ktoru som vymyslel len nedavno, je to jednoduche, klavirne... a dobre! "Somewhere In The World" je zasa pesnicka z maja alebo juna tohto roku, takze uz by bolo na case ju nahrat. No a tie dve melodie...zatial su a vyzera to tak, ze jedna z nich bude tanecnejsia a druha melancholickejsia. A TERAZ O NIECOM INOM (AKO VZDY V KAZDOM ODSEKU, HAHA): A kedze toto je moj blog a mozem si tu vylievat svoje myslienky a nazory, davam vam do pozornosti aj istu hudobnu udalost: moja oblubena kapelka Shakespears Sister sa po odmlke z roku 1996 vracia na scenu! Urcite si ju pamatate aspon podla hitov ako "Stay", ci "Hello (Turn Your Radio On)". Shakespearova segra vydala tri oficialne albumy (dva albumy s Marcellou Detroit), jednu oficialnu vyberovku a vydavatelstvo Warner Music prispelo aj remixovou vyberovkou. A "skupinka" pokracuje ako solo Siobhan Fahey (co ste mozno uz poculi z tretieho albumu), len hmmm... Marcella a Siobhan... ich hlasy sa dokonale doplnali, ale co uz. Mimochodom, aj Marcella Detroit momentalne pracuje na svojom stvrtom solovom albume od odchodu zo skupiny. Ach jaj, stare dobre casy rokov devatdesiatych... ;-)

Moja hudba... a co dalej?

Zdravim, zacnem tym, ze poviem, ze dnes clovek nic nedostane zadarmo. Ale nebolo by odveci, keby vam niekto aj pomohol k niecomu sa dopracovat. Rozmyslal som, ci sa niekedy dostanem v ramci tej svojej muziky dalej. Odpoved je: neviem. A preco? Lebo. Neviem, ci by mal niekto vobec zaujem o nejaku spolupracu so mnou. Ale chcel by som tomu verit. Ako som uz raz spominal, pokial som na toto sam, mozem si spievat tak akurat v sprche. Som v podstate na nultom leveli a odrazam sa dost pomaly. Aj ked nespievam bohvieako, aj ked zvuk v mojich skladbach ma daleko od profesionality, ale jednu vec viem: ze dokazem napisat dobru pesnicku. A ak mate dobru pesnicku a mate prostriedky, mozete ju urobit tak, ze z toho ludia padnu na zadok. Bohuzial, ja prostriedky nemam. Tym nemyslim len peniaze. Pozor na to! Lepsie je pod prostriedkami chapat "ludske zdroje", teda osoby, ktore by mi toto dokazali zabezpecit, ktore by vedeli pomoct s hudbou. Hmmm... Netusim, ci vobec niekto cita moje blogy, ale ak ano a ste prave tym, kto by chcel so mnou spolupracovat, alebo vedel dat nejaku radu ako sa dalej pohnut, tak potom je vasa reakcia vitana. Nuz, som amater, ale bez pomoci nim aj nadalej zrejme ostanem. Dakujem za precitanie a uzivajte si vikend! ;-) Marek.

Blogujeme, loginujeme.....

No a ide dalsi z radov mojich blogov. ;-) Chcem len dodat informaciu o tom, ze spominana "bluesova" pesnicka je nahrata a nachadza sa tu: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=100275105&blogId=509120092 Zatial je teda ako sucast mojho blogu na myspace, pretoze tu sa mi ju opakovane nedari nahrat, ale pokusim sa snazit o to aj nadalej. O pesnicke stale plati to, co som uz pisal v predoslom blogu, takze sa nebudem zbytocne opakovat. Druha pesnicka, ktoru tam na mojom flash playeri najdete je (Posledna) Smoliarova piesen, ktora zatial ostava nedokoncena, aj ked na jej dokoncenie uz netreba az tak vela. Inak sa neviem spamatat z toho, ze najtazsie na celej pesnicke bolo zaspievat to refrenove "mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm". Skutocne. A na konci som sa uz tak trochen nestrafil do tonu. Ale s prizmurenymi usami sa to da. ;-) Obe pesnicky som nahral za jednu hodinu, bol to skutocny adrenalin. Ja totiz potrebujem na nahravanie klud, a to sa skutocne neda, ak vam po byte niekto chodi a nikam neodchadza. Vyuzil som teda aj tu hodinu opustenosti v byte. Aj ked to bolo fakt dost adreanlinove. Sikovni muzikanti by mozno na to cele potrebovali ovela menej casu, ale ja sa zatial iba ucim. Prednedavnom som sa dopocul o uspechu singlu YOU od Roberta Buriana s vokalom Zdenky Prednej. Zaujimava to pesnicka. Dozvedel som sa teda to, ze Tiesto si ju zaradil do svojho mixu a spievalo si ju 40,000 svedov. Waw! Pre mna snad takym malym uspechom ostava, ze spolu s Robertom Burianom som sa ocitol na tom istom cd Mira Jarosa, teda na remixovanej edicii "Tlakovej nize", ktora vysla tento rok v marci. Ale to beriem tak, ze sa nahodou zadarilo, a ze Miro skor ocenil moj napad na remix tejto piesne ako celkovu zvukovu kvalitu, ktoru som mu mohol ponuknut. Onedlho mu vychadza singel "Na dne mora", co bude kompletne slovenska verzia pesnicky "Boi" z jeho albumu, na mixovanie ktorej ma oslovil niekedy v aprili minuleho roku. Mmmm, bola to dobra skusenost. Kym jemu sa viac pozdaval moj Vocal Mix, mne sa viac pacil prvy povodny remix, ktory som stvoril. Podotykam, ze som nemixoval tuto novu slovensku ale povodnu slovensko-hebrejsku verziu. Ale bol to v podstate len taky pokus, z ktoreho nakoniec vysiel lullaby remix na "Tlakovu niz". Uz za to, ze Miro vydava maxace, na ktorych je spusta genialnych remixov, zasluzil by si cenu spevaka roka. Slovensko je stale zaostale vo vydavani singlov, ale Miro to uplne nestresovo dokazal vydavat. A davat priestor na remixovanie dalsim ludom. Je to takmer neuveritelne, ze aj take nieco sa moze stat na Slovensku. Elektroniku a tanecnu muziku mozete pocut len na Radiu_FM. Ostatne stanice stale tlacia ludom do usi tie iste hitovky, ktore vam po case zacnu tak liezt na nervy, ze radio radsej preladite, vypnete, alebo ho uz aj uplne prestanete pocuvat. U nas v robote som to uz musel tak urobit, pretoze kolegyna fici na tazkej komercii, ale ked uz pocujete tu istu pesnicku alebo toho isteho interpreta cez den, a vlastne behom dvoch-troch hodin aj dva krat, totalne sa vam sprotivi. Napr. Millow a jeho verzia "Ayo Technology" je skvela, ma uzasny rytmus a fakt bola moja oblubena, ale tak nech sa ctene vesele radio nehneva, ale pocuvat to non-stop... No, co mam este na srdci... Myslim, ze ak ste sa docitali do konca tohto blogu, tak to muselo byt dost vycerpavajuce, pretoze ako pozeram, kazdy odsek je o niecom uplne inom. ;-) Takze lucim sa zatial. Ozvem sa. Marek.
