Video for the song "Springtime 2009" is online!

Well, it took a while this time to cut the video material and I was, I must admit this, a bit lazy dong it. But the video was ready since four days. Since Vimeo decided to use a new encoder (I think so) it didn't like my preferred video format /-codec. They want H264 video and AAC sound by now. But since my (a bit outdated) Sony Vegas Software cannot do this (I tried EVERYTHING) I can not offer this format. And, honestly, I like my good old XVid video and MP3 sound. What's so bad at this? Well, somehow it worked yesterday late in the evening to get the video up and running. And here it is:

New Dub Reggae Song: "Springtime 2009"

Many of the listeners who like my songs of the reggaelike style have for sure waited for this: A new reggae song has been published. It is really "dubby" this time. Just right for a song of my anual "Springtime" song series. Well, and it became a real "Spacemonster". Full six minutes, packed with wobbly and spacy sounds. The riddim is my own one and especially the groovy and boomy bassline doesn't make me just a bit proud of what I have done. OF CAUSE a real "Springtime" song needs it's own video. And I am allready working at it. But as six minutes are not that easy to fill and I don't want to do a loveless quick-quick-work, it will take some time until it is done. let's wait and see. The material has been allready filmed and now needs to be cutted and composed. Everything should fit best. So, enough words -> I am at work! And here's the song: "Springtime 2009"!
