Snowdrift News 1 – Music News

2010 was an action filled first year for Snowdrift Productions and Harald Haltvik (aka. DJ Snowdrift). Here is an update from the projects of 2010, especially the latter ones:

1. Pre-Production:
Snowdrift has been working with a handful of songwriters at various stages of developing their original material. The activity has mainly revolved around arrangements and production planning and has run through the whole year.

2. Runway mixtapes:
DJ Snowdrift has made mix-tapes for several events by hair-stylist Andreas Constantinou throughout 2010. The aim of the collaborations has been to create a complete experience in sound, vision and modelling around the hair-styles that have been exhibited. Dave Sander of 1ClickPhotography has captured the events beautifully through the camera.

DJ Snowdrift has appeared at several events in the UK through 2010. The repertoire has been from the 60’s and 70’s and containing Soul, R’n B and Funk, with the occasional added flavas’ of neo-soul, modern R’n B and Hip-Hop. Most of the events have been collaborations with the one and only Steven Lynch, aka. DJ Agent M.

5. London Jazz Festival:
On the more relaxing note I had a great time attending a concert by one of my former lecturers. Mr. Jeremy Monteiro, aka. “Singapore’s King of Swing” played in Soho one night during London Jazz Festival.
