050 - In conversation with Cheyne Christian
Cheyne Christian is a DJ and producer with an innate talent for house music. Immersed in the halcyon days of New York house music, he held residencies at the legendary clubs in the city, including Webster Hall, China Club, and Avalon. As demand for his music grew, gigs flooded in from further afield in Miami (Liquid), Ibiza (Bora Bora Beach Club) and London (The End). He mixed a Webster Hall compilation album for Groovilicious (part of Strictly Rhythm) and began producing his own music. Cheyne remixed ‘Sweat’ the #1 Billboard chart-topping hit from C & C Music Factory. As he seemed primed to step up to superstar DJ territory, life had other plans and he took a step back out of the spotlight. A self-imposed, 12-year hiatus from house music ensued. However, during this hiatus, his love for house music never went away and now, with his label Bridge & Tunnel Beat Co. Cheyne Christian has returned to what he does best; producing huge, high energy house tracks infused with New York tribal beats, tech grooves and Latin flavours. I sat down with him to chat about his return and his journey from the beginning in a truly riveting conversation. ‘Sneaker Dancing Sessions Ibiza 2019’ is out now on all download / streaming outlets. https://fanlink.to/SneakerDancingIbiza2019 In this podcast i have a brand new microphone from Sudotack - It's a USB Podcast PC Microphone, Professional 96KHZ/24Bit Studio Cardioid Condenser Mic Kit with Sound Card Desktop Stand Shock Mount Pop Filter, for Skype Youtuber Gaming Recording - https://amzn.to/2ZCiGsE Follow Grahame Farmer: Facebook: https://goo.gl/Xy6oD7 Instagram: https://goo.gl/HEfUMr iTunes Podcast: http://apple.co/thedailyboostpod YouTube: https://goo.gl/3JmFbF Get Hypeddit: https://goo.gl/wKJwdD Join our DJ Tips Broadcast: http://bit.ly/gftelegram Learn to Produce: http://bit.ly/educationbass Loops: http://bit.ly/2Z1AIVQ Plugins: http://bit.ly/2Z3wnS7

Award-winning multi-vocalist, producer and comedian Beardyman has returned from a hiatus.   Beardyman’s rise to success began with him winning the UK Beatbox Championships two years in a row in 2006 and 2007. Creatively shackled by technology and his vast musical ideas, he then went on to develop the world’s most advance live music production system known as BEARDYTRON_5000, allowing him to improvise studio quality cutting edge dance music in real time. He unveiled the BEARDYTRON_5000 at the annual global TED conference which you can watch HERE. He also received a standing ovation for his talk which only happened for a few of the groundbreaking talks that year. Not stopping there, Beardyman has toured the world consistently for over a decade headlining boutique festivals and performing on main stages and big tops ranging from Bestival to Coachella, Fuji Rocks to Glastonbury and everything in between. He was even asked to open the entire Glastonbury festival two years running which lead to him being credited by BBC Breakfast as the ‘King of Sound, Ruler of Beats’.

043 - Peak Performance & Wellbeing with Dan Gayle
Dan Gayle grew up partly in London and partly in Suffolk. He’s been running his own business as a coach since 2012, which was part-time initially, then left a 10-year career in finance behind to pursue it fully at the end of 2014. What started out as “Life Coaching”, his services have evolved to become Peak Performance & Wellbeing  Coaching, as he is both fascinated by AND passionate about maximising human potential. He is the creator of The 6P’s  Peak Performance & Wellbeing Coaching Framework, which brings together decades of experience from multiple industries such as business, coaching, personal development, psychology, music, events  & marketing. He partners with DJ’s & Producers, as well as business owners to get the absolute most from themselves over the long run. This is achieved by working on both the internal world (the mind/psychology) and the external world (implementing strategies/planning/tactics/execution etc), which are captured within the 6P’s framework. Whilst these two niches may sound worlds apart, Dan is keen to point out that artists are actually building a business, where they are the main asset.  Maximising the performance of this asset (themselves) over the long run is absolutely crucial to maximising the potential of success. The means those niches actually have strong overlap. You can book in for your free discovery session with Dan via dangayle-coach.com/music.  Dan has offered us a special discount - for the first 5 people who sign up for their free call and subsequently sign up for Peak Performance  & Wellbeing Coaching, you will get a whopping 45% off the standard rate.

One thing I speak to DJs about is #goals, this is really important for DJs. Its important for focus, where are you now and where do you want to get in to in the next 3/6/12 months. Once you know that, you can then set about working how you are going to get to that place, what steps you need to put in place to try and get you there.  So i thought, today we'd chat about Goals more on the BOOST podcast.

I’ve been learning loads about Spotify for my current series of YouTube tutorials and one of my new tools for submission to playlists is Submithub, i find it really useful from a label point of view and thought it would be a good chat about release promotion with its founder Jason. I thought I’d come at this chat from a record label co-founder, with my Shanghaied Records hat on instead of the blog owner.  In this podcast we chat through Jason's career, how submithub came about, blogging in general and then he gives his tips on using the platform for promotion.

022 - Soldier to DJ Climpo, raising money for Combat Stress along the way
Today, I have an interview. It’s a story that interested me for a while, John Climpson (DJ Climpo) emailed me way back last year and I wanted to cover what he’s been doing but didn’t have the medium to do it. Once I launched this podcast, it was the perfect setting for it. So, today I’m joined by John.  John joined the Army at 16, while he had a very rewarding and fulfilling career, his real struggles began to surface when returning from Afghanistan in 2010. Lacking purpose, uncontrolled emotions and several of life’s hurdles took him to the point where he almost lost everything. Above all he was losing the battle with his mind! But even in the depth of his darkest days, there was a shimmer of light. John's debut track Valhalla, which is in collaboration with Austrian producer Hertenfels, is an analogy of Climpo’s challenges within. It highlights the worst times of his internal suffering, to the point where he felt all hope was lost.   So I chatted to John about his journey so far.

020 - Press Photos, what do you need as a DJ?
Today, I wanted to drill and talk about press photos As an editor of a website, I get to see 100s if not 1000s of shots per month and year.  As a label co-founder, we use press shots differently still. Even for myself and my own press shots, I use them differently again. For the uninitiated press, photos are hi-resolution images of you, which in days gone by were usually for magazines, newspapers, articles. These days the press photo has much much more uses from Instagram photos, facebook headers right up to those big Ibiza billboards or whole sides of building as is Hard Rock Ibiza and those have seen Solardo’s face on it. What do you need as a DJ, what are the specifics?

This is BOOST a podcast with me, Grahame Farmer. For the past 18 months, I’ve been giving out Tips to DJs via my Instagram @grahamefarmer since then we set up our BOOST 1to1 Coaching service, we’ve had BOOST breakfasts at IMS and BMC.  Now I have this podcast, BOOST, its a chance for me to give tips, motivation and maybe a few guest interviews along the way. Yesterday I chatted through some tips for Instagram stories, how did you get on with them? Tag me and i’ll repost them to mine @grahamefarmer  Today, I was planning to announce something cool but it’s been pushed back a week, so hence podcast having to change and being a bit late for those that listen on the morning commute.  If you didn’t know i aim to have these out at 7 am for you, for the travel to work. Yesterday, I had a great call with Sacha Wall, Sacha and I co-founder Data Transmission Radio, which is our own dedicated radio station for data transmission.   We were talking about DJs and social media content from events - so today's podcast is based around a social media gig checklist idea.. Here's my checklist - https://www.dropbox.com/s/gn4ni9j1cdhxtal/SOCIAL%20MEDIA%20GIG%20CONTENT%20CHECKLIST.pdf?dl=0 Follow Grahame Farmer: Facebook: https://goo.gl/Xy6oD7 Instagram: https://goo.gl/HEfUMr iTunes Podcast: http://apple.co/thedailyboostpod YouTube: https://goo.gl/3JmFbF

013 - Blond:ish & Anstascia on Gig Preparation and Maximising Track Promotion
Today on BOOST, I'm still a little behind from last weeks trip to Nozstock, so i've pulled the audio from one of my favourite big questions on YouTube, last year at the DJ Awards I spoke to the then duo Blond:ish (now separate as Blond:ish & Anstascia).  I asked Anstascia about her gig preparation and any rituals she had. I then asked Vivie-ann (Blond:ish) about how she maximises the exposure of a track, how she sends music and she drops a killer bonus tip, wait till the end.

Welcome to Monday! This Monday is starting very different to last Monday that’s for sure.  Last Monday, was pulling down a tent, driving for 3 hours, catching up sleep, sweating lots and generally feeling like death from the fun weekend at Nozstock festival for our Shanghaied Records stage. Let's have a self assessment, lets talk about goals and keeping your focus. We also have an update on the 100 day challenge.  Follow Grahame Farmer: Facebook: https://goo.gl/Xy6oD7 Instagram: https://goo.gl/HEfUMr iTunes Podcast: http://apple.co/thedailyboostpod
