Speaking about the balance between social media perfection and authenticity. How to improve your instagram feed with new hacks for gaining more traction.
Managing social media pages can quickly get overwhelming without a plan so the key is to focus on where your fans (and potential new fans) are most active and create the right content for the platform.
It’s really important to have presence on several social media pages but often having just 3 main styles of positing is all that is necessary to document an effective story in between music releases.
Instagram has some challenges with it’s recent reach limitations imposed by their new algorithm but with a few crafty hacks, you can beat the system and flourish on the platform.
The piece of music advice that has forever changed my thinking is, Private Investigation – Dire Straits. It was like lightning, I was a sixteen year old boy, not especially thinking about the future, not especially thinking about music and from the moment I listened to that peace, my life and way of thinking took another direction. Somehow and unconsciously I knew what I wanted. Like as if it always has been written.

Belgium artist decides to push forward with his career with a second full release incorporating his own vocal with a mix of styles. Focusing on a non-traditional album cover that helps to tell the story of the music. For Karim he worked with an artist to paint a magical speedway that never ends that expresses not only his vision for the future but also tells his trump on continued musical production.
I’m always trying to surprise myself. I don’t like to have the feeling that I’m repeating what I’ve just done. But to me, the most important thing is to be honest with myself so I will always follow a direction that my heart and my soul is telling me. I only have to listen to myself.
