Shares the first release ever.
San Francisco-based DJ and producer Spencer Brown (Anjunadeep, Last Night on Earth, Factory93) has announced the launch of his own imprint, diviine. Its inaugural double-sided release ‘Forbidden Flow / 18 Min Loop’ is already available to stream and purchase.
‘Streaming has provided an incredibly convenient means to consume music; there’s no denying it. We artists have to make a ‘shorter version’ or ‘streaming friendly version’ for every track we make. I completely understand the principle if it’s a radio-friendly track. But some music isn’t necessarily designed for radio. With progressive music, it’s about the journey. I love to foreshadow, and elements come and go as the song progresses. It’s an art in itself to keep someone’s attention for an extended period of time. The art is the art. The track is the track. If it’s three minutes, great! If it’s eighteen minutes, great! That’s what it should be’, says Spencer about the motivation behind divine.
‘I’m very excited to start diviine to allow myself full creative freedom. Some tracks will be long. Some tracks will be short. Some radio-friendly tracks will have an edit. But that’s how it should be, at least in my mind. I currently feel artists coming together to give power back to the artists. I’m grateful to have a platform to help fight our battle!’, he concludes.
