They have a few dance songs in the pipeline including Je Bent Mooi a dance track they are workin g on.  He was contacted by Rhinosilver Entertainment a USA based company to work together on different projects and music. They offered him a Sony/Ioda deal for his music and he will produce music for their artists.  He has a daily growing Fan base as you can see from the Snapshots and have even more Fans at this present moment in time.Imagine a full Orchestra on stage combining classical music with dance as a concept. Having dancerson stage like ballroom dancing, Africa dancers and so on. Imagine a stage performance where youprogress thru all the different areas in music and times and eras. Imagine a Fred Astaire song likesinging in the rain then turning into a dance tune. Maybe a remix of a legend like Nat King Cole. Darkintro`s like resident evil going into a stage performance. Opera singers on stage. The goal is to thinkout of the box and do concepts that will bring the paying public. We can even focus on dance but withvarious genres included. Look at what Robert Miles did with his song children. He made PlatypussRecords into what it is today, an Empire.I need to get my Music placed with major artists and in films, soundtracks and for games. If possible Iwould need management for Maestro as well as a good Record Label. I produce Urban POP and manymore styles including Dance. I see myself on stage with a DJ and singer and the concepts I describedabove. I am a versatile music producer and can produce any style of music. I do not want to limitmyself to producing only one style . I want to do music for films, games and so on. With the rightpeople behind me I want to win Awards and be in all the charts with every single song workingtogether as a unit like a well oiled machine. We are going for gold not silver. I have this outlook onlife; if one thing does not happen I do not cry and focus on the next. Failure is not an option I willeven consider myself. I have been told I can be a force to be reckoned with in the USA and abroad.They are not wrong and it will happen.I want to get signed to a USA or International record label as well. I have music ready and a cataloguewith various productions. I also did all the music for the Movie Zombie land or any other Horror movieor game for that matter and am ready with the material so it can be pre sented and used in variousfilm and game soundtracks……
