Step 1: Delete Everything

I have to admit, I have been pretty lazy with updating some websites that I joined years ago.

My Soundclick hasn’t been updated it 5 years or more, YouTube is 3 or more years out of date, not to mention the countless other websites I created with good intentions but decided to scrap over time as I figured out what worked for me and what didn’t.

Today, it all goes.

I have wiped my YouTube clean, with the exception of 2 videos…2 soundtracks I made, one to Fallout and one to Need For Speed.  Why?  Because they are the only 2 videos on there that I think are pretty cool.

Over the last hour I have wiped and/or deleted the following websites:

  • Soundclick (wiped)
  • YouTube (wiped)
  • DatPiff (wiped)
  • Twitter (@jcbladebeats deleted…check out @jcblade for my main account)
  • Myspace (deleted…sad times)

I’m now going to upload my more recent works to the remaining websites…then I’m going to go through my other beats to see if I have any bangers to share.

Stay tuned!


Time To Rebuild My Name…

I have spent a lot of time over the last 2 years establishing my primary business venture, TagYourBeats, as one of the best sources of beat tags for music producers.  I have taken it far beyond that now, and am well on the way to making it the #1 source for products and services for up-and-coming music producers online.

However, due to the time invested in establishing TagYourBeats, I have allowed JC Blade to fall to the side.

I had established JCBladeBeats as a successful website to lease beats from, but a legal issue from Getty put an end to that.

I now have YouNeedTheseBeats, which I am going to put some serious hours into over the next year, but I feel that I need to go back to my roots before then.

The music producers who have purchased from TYB know me as an ambitious entrepreneur who invests serious time and money into creating affordable services to help music producers to enhance their brands.  But aside from those music producers, the name JC Blade no longer carries much weight in the beat game.

I am going back to the drawing board and I am going to put in work to establish my name again.  

That begins with moving my blog away from Tumblr to my own dedicated host…I have a whole host of music that has never been uploaded before that I will be releasing shortly…then I’m going to get behind the keys again and start making those hits…

If you are reading this, I sincerely thank you.  Your feedback now, next week or 10 years in the future is much appreciated, please do get in touch.

I will have new posts uploaded soon…stay tuned.
