10 July 2020 - So cool @streetmusicmap #souvenirs now 3 weeks old on @spotifyaunz and our first playlisting today #supportlocal
21 Jun 2020 - The album 'Souvenirs' has now been out for only 48hours! And yet I am now onto the next project in development. New B-side and Future Bass experiment, collaboration with Edward Liu.
For full listen to first demo, exclusive only on Bandcamp. Also a second beat (in the works) has been commissioned. This next batch has a brief of Motown slash Bruno Mars and is probably six months away for development. If you'd like to be notified of final product, please add your email (above).
Your help in spreading the word, streaming on Spotify, and payments on Bandcamp goes towards me developing future music, buying gear,
VST audio plugins, collaborating with session musicians and hired beatmakers. All keeping it local within New Zealand so you are helping our inner creative circle!

Thanks to all the talented musicians who have helped record and produce this record all remotely during lockdown.
As you can see from the artwork (drawn by Tim Ingle) the concept of this album is to connect as isolation in any way is no fun. People are social beings so it is so important to stay connected, we have the technology and creativity to do so.
A few of my friends in New Zealand and the UK gathered together through the power of online collaboration to bring you this new record.
Head over to my website as it has had a new facelift: www.ralphe.co.nz
And to support the record (and be an active creative) I have scheduled new fortnightly videologs on my Youtube channel, head over to the channel if you are interested in music production, music gear reviews, video game reviews, gaming, and other similar things of interest. I'd love to hear from you and connect! Place a comment on Youtube if you have any suggestions and please consider subscribing to the channel!
Enjoy the music, stay cool, stay connected, stay creative, stay resilient, stay positive and stay wonderful xo
