The End Of The Year

By orangedrink on January 1, 2017 2:21 am

From 2005-2015, I've released 4 official Orange Drink albums with a total of 30 songs on them.  I struggled with depression and suicidal ideation and it directly affected my music career.  I was wracked with self-doubt.  Over the past years, I've made huge strides in my personal life and my self-esteem.  Last year, I saw that Weekly Beats 2016 was happening.  I thought to myself, "Can I accomplish anything I set my mind to?  What if I just tried to write a song a week, just to see what will happen?"


52 weeks later, here we are!  I have almost doubled my career output in one year.  I can't thank you all enough for your time, energy, comments, feedback, and the personal effort you put in towards your own music.  You all have inspired me so much.  Special shout out to:  Mechlo , CosmicCairns, exileFaker, Tone Matrix, Martiln, Ipaghost, laguna, Jim Wood, Plantrain, Jason Nijjer, GrainBastard, is nothing sacred?, Q-Rosh, miraclemiles, cfurrow, Podling, theGuen, rdomain, m2K7, onezero, george bowles, 7506, dj someguy, mysterioso, cTrix, Edmund Snyder, robroy, Devieus, Aday, little-scale, Diagamblic, sylcmyk, idevourstatic, Saskrotch, gradients, Naikymusic, paul raygun, bryface, dbb, ioflow, nikola, Tri Angles, Tim Koch, Phil Harmonic, Christian Grey, CatchinAshes, Tweaklab, Sodabelly, minaret_kid, Mrwimmer, alonemusic, and everyone I forgot!  Thanks to jEFFREYs for the collaboration!  I might keep this going into 2017.  And maybe I'll see you out there on the road sometime!  Happy New Year and keep making music!  >>>EXTRA SPECIAL SHOUT OUT TO CLUB 42!<<<


My top 5 songs I made as a result of WB2016:  Meaningless Crown, Nothing Exists, What It Felt Like, The Day I Stopped Killing Myself, Looking For Something I Already Have (runner up: Death Threats)

Thanks for the shout out!  This track has killer bass and love that synth sound imploding on itself, looking forward to the next weekly beats, it has been a great journey

Thanks for helping to make 2016 a great year musically.  It was especially needed with everything else that was going on.  I really enjoyed seeing what you brought to the table each week.  Good luck with your future musical output and hopefully will see you around the interwebs.  smile

Congrats on completing the year! You've been so consistent with your quality you've really pushed me to do better. Thanks for being a source of inspiration/comrade during this year. Wish I could be part of the 52 week club but my week 50 never loaded. sad
