I am delighted to present "DeepDive", an instrumental track that I composed during the lockdown. As always, it features the incredible Joop Wolters on guitars and bass. The drums were performed by me on the keyboard - NOT programmed, but played and recorded with my fingers in real time, section by section. Mixed/produced by yours, truly. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy New Year everyone!

Here’s to a healthy new year full of love, happiness, and incredible music of course. 🥂

2022 was a challenging year, but it was also a year full of growth and accomplishment. As we move into 2023, I wish for all of us to find a little bit more joy, hope, and strength. May the year ahead bring us closer to our dreams and help us create a better future. ✨

Personally? I'm just grateful for the opportunities I have to make music and connect with people who share my passion... Hopefully, good health and life will allow us to continue exploring further ❤️

May 2023 be a year of joy and growth for us all!

A new A-Z lyric video is up, and as always, the team did an excellent job. I couldn't agree more with Mark; it's also my favorite on the album! Enjoy:)

I am so grateful to Mister Ling, Shilton and West for including "Paint the Sky" in their top albums of the year in Prog's Critics' Lists 2022. A big thank you to them and Prog magazine!

I still vividly recall my first conversation with Mr. Ling. I jokingly told him that I was concerned about what Prog would think about it all...I was curious, if I were to receive a negative review, would the headline read something like "Lalu Paints the Sky in Dull Colors" lol...speaking of which:

The next opus' title is very pun-worthy, and will certainly tempt a lot of reviewers when it comes to bad review headlines (haha). I always enjoy a good, nasty pun, BUT I hope you will appreciate this one as much as the last.

Wishing you all a lovely and cozy weekend! 🙏✨

Took a real risk. No straps.
Wrong move, and that Roland synth would
have finished its life among the fishes, haha!

I really liked it! Thanks for sharing... Good thing you kept holding tight to that synth! It would have been a shame to "wash it" at water's edge 🥴... Receive a warm bro hug from a Venezuelan lost in Ecuador!

Happy birthday, Damian! I was just listening to Star One's 'Space Metal' again, the other day. Damian was fantastic in that one.
