Music Reviews Coming Soon!

Listen to New Music by Linda Dawkins

As most of you know, I have a lot of interests which include writing music reviews and promoting new and upcoming recording artists and their talent.

Not only is writing music reviews but I produce my own music too. I’m a Disc Jockey, or DJ as well. Why? Because music is my first love, blogging is my second love.

Number One Music

I joined Number One Music during the first quarter of 2018, I uploaded three of my early tracks, (the first one was a beat that I purchased from another producer, (Beatsbylekz Productions ). The other two were creations of my own. I’ll tell you how I made these two songs but for right now. Which have over 1 million views?

I would like to tell you how and why I chose music as my first love and why no matter what I do, I keep making music and sharing music. I always say that Stevie Wonder said it best when he sang in his hit single Jam Master, ” Music is a world within itself, it’s a language we all understand. With an equal opportunity, for all to sing, dance and clap their hands.”

Yes, music is magical and it keeps people going.

My dad loved to sing and dance had his own band, traveled all over, especially to the UK, Spain, and Canada, I think I got half of my ambition from him!

I come from a musical family. Jamaican reggae, blues, and jazz on my father’s side and on my mother’s Guyanese side, Calypso, Soca, rock, soul, and RnB background.

My mom. She sang opera, the daughter of Chief Inspector Clifton Wills, and Maise Blossom. She was a fighter… I mean literally… It was like she knew some type of martial arts. Love her tenacity!

My parents made sure my siblings and I were musically active at home as well as at school. They encouraged us to compete in talent shows and such. Showing us how to be on stage. Whether they were dancing, singing or instrumental recitals. We were in it or we did it.

As time went Circumstances caused me to divert from that role of the entertainment industry to raise a family instead.

30 Year’s later, I have come full circle to realize that if I would have doesn’t even count here. I’m Baaaack! So besides writing, I also make music. I play the piano, I’m not really that good but I Can play anything I hear, a skill most musicians pride themselves with.

With the advancing use of today’s App technology, you don’t have to have any particular skills to make good music. You only need to love what you’re doing to create the perfect groovy beats and sounds to dance to or to rap to. Even to make music videos too.

Anyway, on November 17th, 2018, I started a station Linda Dawkins 1 Radio on Sound Cloud. Where you can listen to all of the music from new artists who have entrusted their music to me, in order to promote their efforts simultaneously.

Linda Dawkins 1 Radio on SoundCloud

Myself included, as you will see when you visit the station. The very first song is mine… Called No Problems after that, it’s a glorious mix of a variety of music. “A world within itself”. Check it out at the link above!

But That wasn’t where I stopped. I began to research other Apps from which I can enjoy the full experience of music making without having access to a studio and studio equipment.

Enter Music Maker Jam MMJ for short. I stumbled across it while browsing my Google Play Store.

I wrote about my early experiences with that app a few weeks ago. I was doing an App review. You can find that here on this blog.

There, I created 20 re-mixes in my first week using the app.

Re-mixing music snippets from several different songs to create something new.
Music created by me using automatic pre-set music. This is the basis of remixing.

“Baby” by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

Here’s another one.

The Human Race Game is a game that I have in development, I want to use this as the theme song for leveling. Up. However, I am open to whatever… I didn’t stop there.

The Human Race Game- Boss Fight By Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

Then there’s this one too, one of my favorites and voted favorite out of my collections, from my Jam Community peers. I know it’s favorite because of the number of comments that I received called Day Dream.

Day Dream is a megamix, my first attempt at mixing seven songs into one, to create this new song.

Day Dream By Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

There are 17 more songs all of them mixes or remixes. And I’m not done yet…

My reasons for producing music and promoting music were explained in the beginning. The purpose of this article is to inform my readers, that I will be writing music reviews again.

I will also be making music of my own.

Here is the complete list of musical projects that I have created within the Jam Community Platform and Playground.

Mavera Remix by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

Bullet-Solid Maybe Squad by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

Good Vibes Only Remix by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

Confused by Linda DawkinsLMC a Jam Community Production

As with most music that remixes are made from I must state that I do not own the rights to the music that I created on the Jam Community forum. The only stipulation is if the music that I used is Royalty Free. Then that’s a different story and I haven’t bought any Royalty Free music as of yet.

Here are some more!

This one was my third attempt at combining the genres dubstep and trance. I think it came out pretty good! music.

The following track was the first time remixing various sounds and experimenting with the Music Maker Jam App its many options and support from its awesome talented member producers and aspiring DJ’s and future stars of the recording industry. Myself included.

Jam X RL GRIME One Remix 1 by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

DAB BLZZ by Linda Dawkins a Jam Community Production

This one was my very first try at using the MMJ app last October I called DAB BLZZ, Its the anagram of the names of each of my grandchildren’s first initials. Jaleeyah, Kenji, Davion, Alejandra, Byron, Bremont, Leon, Zai’er and Zaylee.

Yes, grandchildren…

That just goes to show that it’s not only young folks that enjoy creating awesome content, but old folks can do it too!

I’m just hoping that they, (my grandbabies), will grow up to want to carry granny’s mantel and have a desire to go the distance like I’m going too.

How I Began Writing Professional Music Reviews

In 2015, I was approached on Twitter by Randy Morano, (founder), who was in need of a writer that can review hip-hop and rap music and that lived in the United States.

I was looking for a legitimate online writing gig and I got what I was looking for. He sent me an example, advised me to write no less than 300 words and it was great from there. I was given many assignments. Some single tracks, some albums and was getting paid $5 per review.

That was great! The reviews were coming in as fast as I completed them. At first, I was writing several hundred words per review, depending on the contents of the song and how much research I had to do in order to gather as much information on the artist that I can.

It was great to work But then suddenly the reviews slowed down and I wasn’t getting as many as I expected. Probably because I began to get lazy. Writing exactly 300 words in Some reviews and in others, a lot more.

Bottom line, I wasn’t consistent with my work ethics and made lots of typographical errors. It’s alright though because I have written a lot of reviews, so many that Although I am presently not physically writing for Exposed Vocals. I have done plenty of work in which I am still listed as a CEO of MiGorda Entertainment Editorial Services for a company that I am still in the process of developing. But I need writers and money to pay them with.

Learning Code, The Next, ‘Next’ Big Thing

Learning Code, The ‘Next’, Next Big Thing

Still in search for what’s new? Well, coding isn’t new but it sure is easy to learn nowadays. Without the expense of paying for the costs of education. Especially since the fact that computer programming is STILL the fastest growing profession in the employment sector. Now its the best profession in the educational sectors.

Coding Fact…

Not only does everything on the Internet use code, but everything they you see when you turn on any modern device, no need to go through examples because if you’re reading this you’re looking at the output of the code.

Literally, everything that you’re seeing on your phone, tablet, app, game, artwork, music… etc., coding.

If you don’t know what coding is, then you shouldn’t waste your time reading this article. My advice is to do a quick Google search to get a general idea of what it’s about. Then come back here to finish reading this article.

The reason why you should get a general idea of coding is that in this article I will suggest the best free places to learn to code and how to code. If you already got it? Great! Let’s get right into it then!

I Love To Code!!!

I like to know how things work. That’s just me. So I have been actively practicing and studying code or computer programming for about a year now and I can finally say that I have a general understanding of those principals involved with carrying out specific instructions that lead to the production of some really awesome projects that programmers have developed over the few past decades.

Now, we, Everyone… Has an opportunity to learn how to Code.

Now there are hundreds of Free Apps that are available to download that can help even the most unfortunate soul to learn to code in a few simple steps.

It may open the doors to a new career opportunity or an opportunity to share what you learn and what know as I do.

Top 5 Best Free Apps To Learn Code

First up is SoloLearn

SoloLearn is a really awesome app. Not just an App but a whole entire university all bundled up in an exceptionally well-built playground centered around learning Code basics.

The site is complete with playground, exam rooms, challenge rooms, message center, peer assistance, Q&A forums. Besides the fact that its free you can learn so much there

It’s my school of choice for learning code…

Furthermore, once you complete a course, you are awarded a Verifiable Certificate of Completion like this one I earned for completing the Introductory Course for HTML…

I didn’t just stop there… Why?

Because It doesn’t just stop there…

SoloLearn adds everything that you need to learn with a Heap of extra courses in every computer language in existence. Moreover, updating and adding new courses consistently to broaden the code learners perspective.

In all honesty, I had no clue that they make updates daily, offering new valuable courses free.

Why I Love SoloLearn

Besides the fact that you can earn valuable points just for logging in that you can use to get clues that helpfully comprehend your course lessons and you can actually test your skill set on what you have already learned by accepting cool challenges from other students even challenging them. Winners receive more points that they can use for the above purposes.

Second up… mimo

Mimo is similar to SoloLearn, however, you must consider that it is a new Application. You would have to upgrade to realize the true value and appreciate the experience. It is free to download and test out.

Lessons are overly simplified so as to ensure a users comprehension. They make it easy to learn.

The only problem is upgrading, which isn’t a problem if you want to learn to code easily.

Just remember why you’re starting and you should be great!

GrassHopper: Learn To Code For Free

GrassHopper has received a lot of positive reviews. I couldn’t resist…

I just had to take a screenshot of these awesome comments in GrassHoppers reviews!

Why Learn Code?

Have you ever played a video game and wondered how the heck did they build this game?

Answer??? Coding…

You can create Games, Art Applications, Creative Calculators, Calendars, Radio Music Players, Video Players and So Much More!

Instead of playing games all day, you could actually be building them. Who knows, you create the Next, Next Next Big Thing

What’s The Next Big Thing?

Over the last decade people have been seeing an influx of new high tech products to proudly inundate the market. All for the purpose of advancing in the technology.

Of course it seems like hundreds of new products become obsolete no sooner than they are released to the public. Only to be replaced with The Next Best Thing. But what Is the next best thing?

If you’re anything like me, you’d like to keep up with current industry trends and what’s new in the market today, 2019… Well, I know, I know, we have reached 2019 yet, but it’s coming and there’s lots of new gadgets in store!

It may seem like I’m leaping ahead of myself but I’m actually late. As new models of particular technological miracles are released to the public for general consumption and are no longer in Beta testing.

The Smart Bracelet

Enter the Smarter Bracelet. This device is as modern as it gets… That is until next year when a newer much more efficient model comes into play.

The Smart Bracelet is more like a device you’d see on a Star Trek Film or something out of a James Bond movie. HeadQuarters would have a field day issuing these as communicating devices to it’s new recruits. You’ve got to see on to believe it. However, its nothing like the photo shopped image above. Wouldn’t that be cool though?

By Trial And Terror

When buying The Next Big Thing are you looking for the next Best thing or would you settle for a knock-off?

These are both plausible questions that any wise consumer would ask before making a purchase online and off like this.

People always want to try new things and experience new experiences just so they have something to talk about. Because there’s nothing like being the first to have a test run on cool new products.

Then there are those exceptional items of merchandise that once you make your purchase, you’re surprised. But not in a good way. The product in the advertisement that you spent your hard earned cash or bitcoin on wasn’t exactly the way that it appeared in the advertisement. That’s what I call Trial by Terror.

Note For Marketers…

When your customers are searching for a product to buy they will most likely read the reviews of your previous customers and clients. They are more likely to buy based upon the reviews that were left on your website or product display advertisement.

DoorCam
Make sure that the product that your trying to sell is exactly as described. Leave no stones unturned here. Be very exact in your description and/or sales script/pitch. Include your download the links if any.

Always be available to respond to reviews or have someone, a friend or family member do it perhaps. It shows initiative that you are a professional and that you are willing to satisfy your customers inquisition. It’s only good customer service. Furthermore, it can turn a Trial by Terror into a wonderful lucrative sales experience.

Note For Consumers/Customers

When making your purchases whether online or on location. Make sure that you know what you want before you go in the store. Do your research. Just as you would online check where you can get the best deals because you may or may not want to settle for less when you can have more. The question here is “Why WOULD you settle for less when you can have more? ” You just have to be willing to do the leg work… Sometimes literally.

So What’s The Next Big Thing?

If you’re looking for something new the best thing to do is really look for
