  • What’s happening?

    We are actually starting to stoke the fire once again. After a little hiatus from the internet and music making it seems as if the Nine:Fifteen machine is once again putting the pedal to the metal. Last weekend Bisquite was on the set with director extraordinaire Hilton Carter shooting a video for “Guarded Things”! Big things in the works as we speak and I just personally wanted to thank Hilton, Andrea, and Bisquite for all of their time and commitment to the project and greater good. If you would like to check some “still” footage from the shoot, visit Nine:Fifteen’s Facebook page.

    We’re looking for avenues to get the video out, so if you’re reading this and have a blog or know a blog or know someone that has a blog, send us and email and we’re get you the link once we have it. Send all information to blake@candlewaxrecords.com

    I have been on a crazy streak with DJing. At least crazy for me… Speaking of which, if you’re in DC and looking for a Holloween party to go to, come to Rock and Roll Hotel for “STANK”. Me and The Metaphysical will be playing dance floor pleasers all night!

    Stay tuned…

  • Just cause we have a day off don’t mean we ain’t workin…

    It’s been a little while since I checked in. It’s been a crazy couple of months. I have been DJing just about every weekend. A lot of fun, but the late nights and partying can take it’s toll. I’ve been dabbling with writing and producing my own songs. It’s been a lot of fun, but as a lyricist / singer is something I’m going to have to work at. Having found a muse is helping, not exactly the ending I would have liked, but good for writing songs. Seems some of the best tracks are created under similar circumstances. We’ll see if I can capitalize. Here’s a lil demo of something I’m working on

    The Blake9 and Vex da Vortex project is still coming… I got sent back to the lab on the mix of one of the tracks, we want it to be fresh before we do anything with it. However the artwork is ready everything is ready… But, me… I’ll get on that.

    Nine:Fifteen has some video shoots lined up. Bisquite is in a new place, new job, and settling in nicely out in LA. We’re hopeful to start recording again soon, so a trip to LA is likely in the near future.

    The Acorns, well… I’m sure Mad Squirrel is getting ready for the winter, so he’s probably out there getting ready for the winter. Somewhere on a college campus, climbing trees, gathering acorns, lookin at all the incoming females (even though he wouldn’t admit it). We did a new track, but… Honestly, I don’t even know where we are with that…

    Yesterdays Truth, again, well… I know Ionic is working out some recordings with long time friend Schwartzy…

    So, needless to say, lots in the works, but obviously we’re on a bit of a hiatus. Sounds like the crew needs a meeting… I’ll be working on getting my shit together… Reading this makes me realize how scattered I’ve been for the past months. Time to get back on the music grind! Letzzz Gooooo!
