Fun In This Town Video



Okay, so I wanted to post this, I was having some fun today, wrote and recorded this song and decided to make a quick video. I figured, why not, as you get to know me you'll realize that I'm a pretty funny and silly guy. Life is too short to be serious all of the time, so here is something that will hopefully make you smile!

Peace,

Del Rio

R&B megastars squeezed by credit crunch

Here are some more reasons why people should try and live within their means. The platinum hits don't just keep coming. Here is an article that proves my point!

SCORES of blingtastic R&B stars are having to ditch their bejewelled lifestyles because of the credit crunch. Among the victims is Wyclef Jean, who is now a genuine re-Fugee after losing his Malibu mansion.

Random Thought for Today

2/4/2009 I saw this picture on Shacknews.com, made me laugh so I had to put it up!




I ran across this picture and I had to re-post it. It pretty much sums up how I feel right now! I might have to make a song about this.

Grinding

Last night I had Mista Perkins in the studio, he's part of Hornz and Halos and he is currently wrapping work on his solo album.

He had a hook already writing and a melody in mind so he came over to the studio and we crated the beat from scratch. We were having a little trouble with finding the right cords so we called up our boy Michael Terrell and he helped us out.

Be on the look out for M. Terrell also, that guy can sing, you'll find him featured on tracks with Hornz and Halos, Myself and Perkins solo album I'm sure.

So we recorded until about 3am and I must say that we came up with is banging, I can't wait until we can share it with you all. It's got hit written all over it! hahahahaha don't they all! So I finally got to bed this morning at about 5am and I was up by 11 am to do it all over again.

I had Diana (DD) in the studio today finishing up some work on a song she is doing with her two other sisters called Anything. I produced the beat and added a few touches here and there to spice up the track a little bit. I have to say, I think it'll be a good song for her once I get it mixed.

Now it's almost 8pm and I have Natalia coming through so I can put together a snippet's of some of the songs she has finished up for her trip to Washington D.C. next week.

When I'm done with that I have to write two verses, one is for the song "Paranoid" that I was working on with Perkins last night and the other is a track produced by RC. The track is called "Brought you the Game" that might change, but it is absolute fire!

So be on the lookout for some fresh new tracks coming soon!

Peace Del Rio

My Solo Album

So I am almost done recording my solo album, I have about 15 tracks completed right now and I'm hoping to record a few more. Than out of those 20 or so tracks, I'm going to take the 10 or 12 that fit best together.

I'm really excited about how the album is coming together and also the feedback I've received from the new songs I've played live. Here is a sample of one of my new tracks that I'm sure will make the album it's called, "Okay" It features DMV and Charissa and I had help putting it together and writing from my boy Ezroy. Let me know what you think of it, this was a performance on New Years Eve, private party and yes I'm a little drunk! hahahahahhaaha That's what rock stars do! video

What is Full Circle?

I am going to document my journey in music through 2009, I will have pictures, music, videos and anything else I can think of to post here. I started this last year but I lost momentum rather quickly with it.

I did accomplish a lot last year though, I produced tracks for Bad Azz, Hornz and Halos, Def Sound, Natalia, Diana Li, Charissa and a variety of other hot artist out of LA.

I also recently graduated from Musician's Institute with my Audio Engineering Certificate. It was a crazy six months. In fact I think I will post another story just about that experience.

I am new to the blogging world, so bare with me and if you have any ideas or things you would like to know about me feel free to ask.

Buckle up, hold on and prepare yourself for a wild ride with me, Del Rio, this 2009!

Peace Del Rio

New Years Eve


So I was booked by a friend to do a New Years Eve Party up in Lake Chelan, Washington State. This was an amazing trip and made me feel like a super star, he put us up in a 3 story condo and treated us like Vip's. I have to give you a big shout out Cappy!
The party was amazing, Dj Empty and I rocked Lake Chelan like it's never been rocked before! This year is the "Real Full Circle"
