Latest News from Reuben Halsey

Good day to you, my fine and loyal mailing listers!

For those of you who still remember who I am (I know, it has been millennia since my last mail-out), there is some good news hurtling its way towards you at the speed of…well, at the speed of Chillout music—which can really be quite fast, if you turn the tempo up to a million.  I have not one, not two, but three [THREE?! Are you kidding me?!] portions of good news, each containing 1 of your 5 recommended daily allowances of delicious Chillout nutrition.  No artificial flavourings, pesticides or MSG added.

The New Website

The first little nugget of news is that I have finished (sort of) the creation of a brand new and super sophisticated (not) website!  Now bear with me please, as I know it’s still in its early stages.  But soon it will come complete with a regular blog where you can get the low down on new releases in the Chillout scene, current and future radio shows, music related tech and random chit-chat.  There will also be a new music player where you can listen to samples of all my releases and promos as well as episodes of Into the Light. That’s if I haven’t jumped off a very tall bridge out of sheer frustration at trying to use html code.  If any of you bright and intelligent sparks know how to get a Soundcloud player to show up on my website in the place it needs to be (anywhere would be a start!) then please do get in touch!

New Release Out Today

The next helping of Chillout nutrition is that as of right now—which will be immediately, in a few hours or three months from now, depending on when this makes its way to your eyes—you can invite your eardrums to sample the delights of my new (sort of) album titled ‘The Lost Songs’.  I say “sort of” because I’m not really counting this as an official new album, rather it’s a collection of works that got lost along the way, never made it onto Eucalyptus Tree or sat in a dusty old drawer on a dusty old shelf in a dusty old room for years, never to be heard.  Think of it as a ‘sending out what is and what has been to make space for what’s to come.  There are 15 tracks on the release and most of them have never been released before.  A couple of them were released at one time but then lost from general release for ages.  And one or two are a bit special and have been requested by you guys so many times I simply had to find a way to make it happen.  You can listen to a preview here:

New Shop Coming

Because of popular demand there is going to be a shop where you’ll be able to buy T-Shirts and other cool stuff to impress your still-cool-but-not-nearly-as-cool-as-you friends.  There are some very nifty new designs in the works and the quality of these new shirts is going to be far superior to the test batch we did for the Into the Light competition shirts.  These are high street quality with really cool musicy designs you won’t be able to get anywhere else.  And if there is demand for them we’ll do mouse mats, stickers and a few extra bits and bobs too.  Fridge magnet anyone?

That’s all the news for now but I would love to hear feedback from you about all these plans and ideas.  Is there anything else you would like to see on the website?  What kind of content would you like to see in the blog?  Are you sure I can’t interest you in an Into the Light fridge magnet?  Reply with your thoughts and suggestions and I’ll do my best to make it happen.

Thanks for reading and have a super chilled day!
