Well, 2021 is coming to its end, which means it’s time to remember what it was like and what happened during these 365 days.
I just wanted to make an e-mail newsletter with important news for everyone interested, and in the end this site turned out 🙂
For the first time in 6 years, I was able to record and mix two mini-albums on my own, and even in one year!
Solely thanks to the financial support from the community, I managed to make a huge technological breakthrough in my music.
The new equipment and its capacities, which I was even afraid to dream about, allowed me to open up completely different spaces for creativity.
I have edited and published 38 (!) jam-highlights, not counting the short-versions and several promo videos!
*some of them are in private playlists, below are public materials
Mikulski – Elderly Flex
Mikulski – Tema Sistema
Mikulski – Wicked Choices
Mikulski – Spasibo Chatik (Soundlex Special)
Mikulski – Mr Spaetling
Mikulski – 3 Years
SpaceMelodyLab optimized and brought to mind the idea of changing the backgrounds via chat commands. And even managed to attach access to the entire content database from the Pixabay website!
Sikorama kindly shared his Tangerine Bot, which allowed us to communicate better in different languages and showed the breadth of the geography of our community!
I also tried to be not only pleasant, but also useful: by sharing my newfound knowledge and experience in 18 tutorials
- Creating a 24/7 “Lofi Like” stream (Liquidsoap script template | Linux VPS installation guide)
- Your own Restream Server (Nginx RTMP | Ubuntu 20.04 VPS | Windows Desktop)
- Autopost in Telegram about the beginning of the stream on Twitch
- Restreaming: free services and my experience of using
- Free and Simple Tools for Scripted Live Looping
- How I Made My Stream Radio 24/7
Do not forget about merch.
In addition to opening its page in the SE Merch Store with clothes and mugs, stickers, guitar picks, postcards and even vinyl magnets were also produced!
I have sent about 150 (!) mails with mini-merch to different parts of the planet!
Yes, the staff at the post office will recognize me now :’)
We’ve been waiting for this for a long time: my grooves are 24/7 (well, almost) without unnecessary words and long build-ups on Mikulski_Radio!
The first collaborations also happened:
For example, my modest participation in the track with tc_poole & TheFunkySpud:
I was accepted into the ranks of Twitch teams TeamVamoo & Jukebox
And I also visited the podcast WeSpeakEnglishGood (yeah, I warned him about my English skills) 🙂
Well, in a short line, there are several milestones that I have broken through in social networks:
- 3500 followers on Twitch
- 300 subs on Instagram (product of Meta company, which is recognized as an extremist organization in Russia) & Youtube
- 100 subs on Spotify
