Singer, Musician, Producer, Musicoin Global Ambassador.

Hi,

I am Ed Privat, a singer-songwriter, producer and musician based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Very influenced by the new waves of Lofi artists and DYI music that emerged in the late 2000's, I like to find my groove in contemporary music, particularly Soul music, and Jazz.

Here is what I think about what we are doing here:

"Blockchain technology really enable musicians all around the world and allow us to share music, earn, but most importantly, becoming the artists that we were meant to be."

UFO

This a song called UFO. I lost the project a while back, so this is the only version left of this track. I am not exactly sure what I was trying to express. I think it's about ancient alien civilization, and of course UFO's. I've always been fascinated with this subject, from Steven Greer's documentary "Sirius" to the book Chariots of The Gods by Erich von Däniken, I like to dream of these concepts. Do I firmly believe in these stories? Let's say that I try to keep an open mind, I think some of those theories are more and more discussed between believers and skeptics, and that's probably what really matters, that the dialog is open. The intro is dragging on forever, I think it was deliberate. ( I say "I think", because I don't recall recording the song, I think I was under the "influence" at the time)

I only realized today that I've never released this song on Musicoin, it was from my first album, it's probably my least favorite, that's why i completely forgot about it, the lyrics and style is a bit cheesy, however I love the work that violinist Luc Waldo Alexander did with the strings

A song that started on the blockchain, it's produced by Heaterville that is here on Musicoin too: https://musicoin.org/nav/artist/0x203adef070c4b46a30ecd9df7830cbd427be3849 That's what we need to keep in mind, we are not just showing new ways for people to earn crypto with the UBI and the tips, we are actually networking and collaborating through smart contracts in ways that couldn't have been possible few years ago. The song is such a chilled track, Dave Moss aka Heaterville did a fantastic job with bringing that West Coast atmosphere... Thanks for listening :)

This is the old version of the song "Power Of Love", which is now being reworked on :) and experimented with. I thought it would be great to post it and replace it with the new one when it's finished! The World is a great Illusion, where it's hard to perceive the different realms we live in And where fate is dictated by birth Open your eyes to the great, Illusion you have been given a voice to speak Don't let them curse you Let your spirit lead the way Don't cover your own eye to pray Let your spirit lead the way Feel the power, feel the power of love I hope you enjoy edprivat.com

This is a song I wrote and recorded more than 10 years ago, but never really had the chance to release it before, and work on a proper version. This is actually an audio file that I have managed to save from back in the days, the levels are very low but I really like the vibe. A song about death, one of the very few with that subject...

Hello everyone. I wrote this song few years back. I actually lost it when my hard drive fried, and eventually got it back by email. I've mastered a one track, as the whole project is gone.It's a very weird song, i write from the point of view of an old woman, staying at home in her house while a revolution is happening in the street. I have never shown this song to anyone, and I have to admit that I have no clue why I went for such a bizarre instrumentation. I am currently working on my second album, so Musicoin is a great way for me to try things.Thanks for your support, you can follow me on other platform, especially on Steemit where I do song request, and you can win money if your song is picked! Cheers guys! I don't wanna go outside today, There's people marching in dem streets, They're shouting "Freedom Freedom" all the way But they just sound too crazy The speakers ask me to stay quiet today My legs are anyway too week They're wishing "Freedom Freedom" all the way But something's started on TV Wohoo Yesterday the army came to me Believing I am the enemy, they said "we know that you live here mam" But staying quiet my reason told me Wohoo [Interlude] And Then I remembered what Mama used to say Next to the fireplace with all the kids were shouting "freedom freedom" all the way We tend to forget how to think So imma gonna get my cane today, and pack up all my memories A piece of freedom , freedom in my hand And walk until I find my peace... I hope you enjoyed listening and reading the lyrics, it's a song about all of us and The Purge happening all around us . This song is exclusively on the Blockchain Cheers Ed Privat

It's a song that i titled at the time "Nothing" because It was never meant to be be anything.I used to produce songs the way people doodle, with no particular idea in mind. This is one of those doodles... I left it as it is without a fade in or fade out.It has a catchy theme though, It could be used as jingle.

Weird Week End Series This is a part of the Weird Weekend Series, where I a show you some of my weirdest work. This is an instrumental I wrote few years back called "Weird Funk" it is heavily influenced by Herbie Hancock and Stevie Wonder. For some reason I never wanted to write vocal for it, I thought the song was nice like that with the clavinet driving the rhythm.

This is a part of the "Weird Weekend Series" This song was an improvisation , I was playing the bass at the same time and just playing around with echos. There's something very weird and hypnotic about this song, I hope you enjoy.

This song was featured in my first album, it's actually the only track of the album that was performed live, and by this I mean that all the musicians and instruments were gathered in the same room and jamming. When you work on a album and you have a very precise idea in mind, it's normally preferable to record the instruments one by one, on a sequencer, using a click. But I really needed the drums and the band to have an organic feeling to it, almost like a someone's breathing, so I wanted the tempo to fluctuate slightly to give that live feeling to it. We decided with Dylan Ellis at the time, that the best way to do so is to play it live If I remember correctly, it was a local gospel band that are playing on the song, the bassist being Patrick, a guy from Congo DRC that I met few years back came with his "friends from church". Patrick was speaking french, which made him my instant friend at the time :) . I think it helped with communicating what I wanted for the song too. All the musicians were killers, with amazing tempo and they jammed with me like their life depended on it that day :) It was one of the most accelerating recording session , I never do well when the red light is on, but the energy in the room was so high that day, I think we got what we wanted after the first take which is very rare.

I wrote this song in 2012, and recorded it in 2013 on my own.I lost it during what is know now as "FriedGate" when my HDD fried. I recovered it few days ago as I was actively looking for it in sent emails. After few days of reworking on it, I managed to get something good, with a bit of saturation. I hope you enjoy!

The song today is Superfreestyler, a song about a super hero dancer freestyler that beats crime through the power of hip hop, lock and pop and coolness.Oh and he has a boombox obviously, and lives in Discoville. It featured in my first album "Neo"

It's one of my favorite song of my first album "Neo". I consider it as one of the more complete song , I was a bit older when I wrote this as a folk ballad, it was just before meeting my wife and I was keeping on meeting people so shallow and empty, I was starting to lose patience to eventually find love one day, which is pretty much what we are meant to do on this earth. The lyrics are funny, and I would even say sexy, not everything rhymes but it has a charm it's the first time I told a story in a descriptive fashion.

For the first time we can break the shackle that suffocates us, we can support each other, and "the power that be" is freaking out. I know it sounds like a cheesy utopia, but I am truly convinced that our revolution and emancipation will have to come with financial freedom first.

Throughout the years I have learnt that you can heal, connect, love , hate, share, and live longer with music. I have learnt if you want to feed your soul of the good food, you have to reach for your real purpose in life. There are no other way to find true happiness. For me it's singing ,but it can be anything....Whatever rocks your boat, whatever comes naturally to you. When i feel tensed, or in a life threatening situation, I start singing. I kid you not , this is the first thing that comes to my mind, and words and melodies start forming in my mouth as a defense mechanism, I just can't help it. It's not always pretty or coherent, but like a possum playing dead, it's the only thing that it knows, so it comes naturally, by instinct. I got away from bar fight like this, just by starting singing and hoping for the best :). I guess this is my weapon of choice, my music . But don't worry it doesn't hurt ! I had imagined a whole western music video for this song, but it will probably be for another time :) if you want to ! Don't forget to ask me for as song request, i always accept a challenge. It need to be a song that has a meaning to you , and that is a bit popular to make it easier for me :) Cheers @edprivat

Today I want to make you discover my song called "Sweeperman". I recorded it in 2010-2011, and the solo in the middle was not supposed to be that long, we eventually decided to keep it with the producer Dylan Ellis from Inner Flame Music Studio. Still Marcus Wyatt at the trumpet, and me at the beat-box/guitar. It's a song about all the sweepers, miners, grinders, that work too hard and are always forgotten. It was a blast to record at the time, I really insisted on having that beat-box intro and I think it sounds great :)
