SO HERE IS THE DEAL...
I'm giving away free downloads of brand new songs. Now why would I do that?
Basically to get my music across, for all people, all over the world, building up following and perhaps along the way, touching a single soul
In retrospect, I can enjoy listening to music and discovering artists, most times once stumbled upon profiles or websites I got the 'check this, buy that' and it sets me off a little bit. Time and money flows fast these days, they seem to run out before the day is over. I know music is business, yet more important for me is to deal with each valuable given moment in life and what better way than to experience and cherish the soundtracks of them when u can get them for free and instant! (With this said, there are plans having these songs be released on vinyl and/or discs)
Matter a fact, I'm planning to also do some FREE SHOWS and by forehand, ask you, which of the songs I gave away, U would want to hear me play, these shows I will do 'solo'and with band.
I will post such question on my social media when time comes..
* Bytheway, did u know, from a scientific point of view, music has been PROVED to be a perfect tool to develop an intelligent social being, with a brain that is well formed, wired correctly, next to assist building mental and physical strength, might come in handy nowadays.. Here are 2 cool articles for u, EDM & FACTSLIDES

Hello dear people!
Today, the official release of Dishking's new 'romantic' single called 'L'amour c'est toi'
The singer and songwriter from Holland known as DishKing has released his latest single, “L'amour C'est Toi.” The track is a shadowy, blues-fueled song with elements of 1960s French pop which showcases yet another facet of this multifarious musician, a side which his legion of longtime fans in Europe and abroad will be enthusiastic to meet. Dark, masculine and as tonally stylish as it is lyrically evocative, “L'amour C'est Toi” by DishKing is the latest reason for audiophiles around the world to introduce themselves to this masterful sculptor of blues, pop and rock music.
DishKing's former LP albums, “Sell Yourself in Gold” and “The Power of a Loaded Gun,” were released under the AG Music umbrella and continue to garner him fans around the world. His new “L'amour C'est Toi” single joins his more-recent “101” full-length album – the popularity of which seems to grow with every passing month – as an independent release on his own DishKing Records music label.
Asked to describe the theme of his latest single, “L'amour C'est Toi” (“Love Is You”) DishKing writes, “Everyone has been or is in love. The song's intention was to describe the feeling of newfound love, a satisfied moment like cruising by car with your loved one on a hot summer's day celebrating the mutual feelings. Taking the bitter and good times for what it is or was, enjoying the moment of happiness and expressing it.”
DishKing's repertoire is widely varied, so much so that the artist once commented, “What kind of music? You tell me. Even more so, if you like it, tell the whole world.” Nevertheless, he has cited as main artistic influences David Bowie, Ry Cooder, Daniel Lanois, T-Bone Burnett, Johnny Cash, Quentin Tarantino, Goldfrapp, Elvis Presley, Mark Lanegan, and the Queens of the Stone Age. Whether or not his fans will be surprised at the nuances à la Serge Gainsbourg in his new single is anyone's guess – but it's absolutely certain that they're going to love it. “L'amour C'est Toi,” indeed.
“L'amour C'est Toi” by DishKing is available online worldwide. Get in early, music fans. Very early.
