Edit brings remixable music to your phone
Josh Gabriel announces a Kickstarter for Modify, a phone app with the ability to remix music and build a community around new sounds.
If you were involved in the scene, the name Josh gabriel should already be familiar to you as one half of the dance music duo Gabriel & Dresden. Over the past 18 months, the duo have entertained fans through Club quarantine live streams and deeply moving video output as well. While fans loved to see Dave Dresden on the bridge during all those endless hours, many were asking, “Where’s Josh?” In addition to tireless hours helping to organize the sets played by Dave, Josh also worked hard on a side project, tapping into a skill set he didn’t often show in public.
Fans know Josh Gabriel as a talented producer and DJ, but what they probably don’t know is that he’s a technologist at heart too. In the 90s, he co-founded Mixman which started out as a hardware device (which was arguably the precursor of modern CDJ) and later evolved into a PC-based software suite for mixing music. Over the next 20 years, Josh continued to dream of an app that would bring the remix to the masses. Today marks an important step on the road to realizing this dream with the launch of a Kickstarter for the To modify application.
It may have been a really long journey, but the timing seems absolutely perfect for Edit. Josh has patiently tested many concepts over the years, but with the power of the modern smartphone and fans embracing social media, Modify’s time has truly arrived. We’ve been able to test prototypes of the app over the past year and it’s a truly unique and entertaining experience. By working with music you already know and love, you become the DJ in the app without knowing anything about music production or mixing. And when you come up with a remix that you like, you can share it seamlessly with your social media network.
Modify users can upload their own bespoke musical creations, but since its primary audience is non-producers, a partnership with Black hole recordings was forged to load the app with music that fans already know and love. Among the 20 Black Hole artists present on the platform at this stage: BT, Christina novelli, Craig Connelly, Giuseppe Ottaviani, state-garden, Markus Schulz, Nifra, Solar stone, SOMNA, Roger shah, and Sean tyas – and more! If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to remix music like this, but didn’t think you had the skills to do it, now is your chance – you’ll want to give Modify a try.
