We have been wondering how an individual musician can get popular on social media in 2019, so we contacted Jaka Bostjancic (NGHTBLD) and he revealed his promotion strategies. It’s no secret that he was able to build a cult-like following over the past few years and his promotion methods seem to be working.
Jaka is a music producer & entrepreneur from Slovenia, where he was born and raised, but still, the majority of his audience comes from other countries. “It was never my goal to “make it” in Slovenia. Since I’m a music producer, my main focus is working with as many artists as possible. There’s no way to do this if you limit yourself to one country. Too many musicians make this mistake and end up missing out on the bigger picture.” he says.
One thing he mentioned, which he says it’s the most important part of growing your social media profiles, is that you have to engage with your followers. “People are more inclined to follow someone they can relate to, look up to, or connect with. That’s the reason why celebrities exist – people look up to them. However, your strategy should firstly be to connect with people and build relationships with them. If you engage with their posts, they will engage with yours. Scratch their back and they will scratch yours.”
At first we didn’t understand why getting engagement is the most important part and skipping it almost certainly leads to failure, but then Jaka Bostjancic explained how it works. “See, people like to be in groups. If you think about it, thousands of years ago, hanging out in groups was necessary for survival. You couldn’t make it on your own out there. And this is still in our genes, we naturally want to survive, so we find friends, hang out in groups and connect with people who share the same interests. Because of that, we all follow someone who already has followers, solid engagement, and so on. So, if people see you have a nice engagement on your posts, they will be more inclined to follow you thinking “he/she must be great if so many people liked/commented/shared his photo, I should follow him/her as well”. As you can see, engagement is a crucial part on your way to success.”
Like Jaka said, this is the best way to get engaged social media following nowadays and way too many musicians don’t care about it.
Music technology is changing fast. Really fast. Nobody knows what the future has for us and we can only guess what will happen to music producers. Will robots replace them, just like they started replacing other jobs? Or will people just stop listening to music and there will be nobody to make music for?
We discussed the future of music with Jaka Bostjancic who comes all the way from Slovenia and is getting the attention he deserves nowadays.
He has worked with local Slovenian artists, but also some of the most famous worldwide producers in the game. We could describe his production style as minimalistic and melodic. While other producers try to make “hard” beats suitable for clubs, he focuses on expressing his feelings through melody and drums.
“Your own production style is not something you acquire in a few months. It takes practice, patience and some more practice to get there. Firstly, you have to really dig deep and learn music production inside out. The next phase is usually copying other producers and their styles, trying to replicate them. And this phase usually lasts up to a year, even two, depends on your dedication. Then, and only then, can you start thinking about developing your own style and maybe even inventing a new genre. But once you do, it will be so worth it – your audience will like you for who you are, not who you’re trying to be. You will worry less about other producers and won’t be comparing yourself to them as much.”
However, with your own style come a lot of problems as well. When you’re making beats that are market-proven already, people like your work. Because that’s just what they’re used to listen. But when you come up with something new, they will be shocked.
“Sure, not everyone’s going to love your style and they shouldn’t. Imagine what would happen if all people on Earth liked the same things? Mass confusion and hysteria, that’s what. We would also all be the same, like some kind of robots with no personality. Being different is great, so go out and be different. Just stay true to you.”, Jaka explained.
Jaka Bostjancic thinks that music producers, especially ones earning their paychecks on the internet, try too hard to make everybody like them. He says everyone likes different things, so why does everybody try to make the same type of beats?
“Type beat producers get a lot of love, but also a lot of hate. They’re being accussed of copying other styles and all sounding the same, but that’s just because they have all figured out what sells the most. Since that’s how they make their living, why not make beats that actually sell well, even if it means working on something that’s not you.”

The word “quantum” has gained its true meaning in the last years of the 20th century and today we can practically every day hear something new in this field.
When we begin to talk about “quantum” in the field of computing, we approach the truly dramatic changes that will shape the coming period.
Quantum computing is a technology based on the principles of quantum theory that explains the nature of energy at atomic level. The experiment of Erwin Schrödinger of 1930, which included a cat, who was at the same time alive and dead, wanted to show the apparent absurdity of the superposition (one of the two quantum mechanical phenomena in quantum theory) – the principle where the quantum system could exist in different simultaneously until it is observed or measured. Today, quantum computers contain dozens of kubits (quantum bits) that exploit the potential of this principle. Each kubit exists in the superposition of zeros and one (for example, a kubit has a “non-zero” number of options that will be zero or one) until it is measured. The development of cubits has implications for dealing with mass data and achieving so far unachievable levels of computer performance, which has enormous potential for quantum computing.
While Schrödinger was talking about “zombie” cats, Albert Einstein watched a “scary distance action” – particles that were supposed to communicate more rapidly than the speed of light. What Einstein saw, they were electrons. “Entaglement” is another of the two quantum mechanical phenomena in quantum theory, which relates to the observation of the state of particles of the same quantum system, which can not be described individually or as a result. independently. Even when separated by large distances, they are still part of the same system. At present, the distance record measured between these particles is 1,200 kilometers. “Entanglement” means that the entire quantum system is larger than the sum of the individual parts.
If the above-described phenomena seem to be too complicated, at this point we can add Schrödinger’s quotation, which he pronounced after developing quantum theory: “I do not like it and I’m very sorry that I had to meet this at all times at all . ”
Different actors associate different approaches to quantum computing, and therefore it must be borne in mind that a single interpretation can not be correct. There is, however, one principle that could help laics better understand the difference between classical computing and quantum computing. Classic computers are binary.
This simply means that they can only operate with zeros and enzymes. Schrödinger’s cat in some way managed to show that subatomic particles can take on an infinite number of different states simultaneously. If we imagine a space, the binary option would be such: 0 would be, for example, the north pole, and 1 the south pole.
Within the cubit, it is possible that the entire sphere can withstand the infinite number of states and the relationships between these kubits make certain correlations that make quantum computing suitable for specific tasks that classical computers can not execute. Creating cubits and maintaining their existence enough time for quantum computing activities to take place is a lengthy process.
So, do you want to buy your first guitar, but have no idea what to look for, which brands to trust and how much to spend on it? No worries, here you’ll find everything you need, in order to head to your local shop and finally purchase one.
Let’s start with top 5 acoustic guitars for beginners in 2018;
Taylor Academy A12e
This must be the most recognized model Taylor guitars have ever made. It is also worth mentioning that it’s not really your average beginner / entry-level guitar, it’s more of a premium model. But then again, what else could we expect from Taylor, if not prestige?
The only downside is obviously the price, but we really recommend this one if you can really afford it. Otherwise just look at some other recommended guitars, but also check out this whole list, as it’s really made of the good stuff!
No long explanation needed here. Ask any guitarist and when they recommend you some guitars, this one will definitely be mentioned. Although the price is a bit high on this one too, it is worth every penny, and some would argue that you even get more than what you’re paying for.
Made in Canada, Seagull S6 is dressed to impress every guitar player, not only beginners, but also professionals who really know their craft.
Yamaha is not only known for their premium models, but also for their entry-level guitars. They realized that they need to offer some cheaper models as well, instead of just producing guitars for elite players. Because of that, FG830 found its way on to that list, and thank God it did, as any beginner would be very lucky to own this piece of art.
Fender Tim Armstrong Hellcat
For those of you who are looking for something different, not just a typical budget-friendly guitar. Its design really stands out from the crowd – it features mahogany top (we personally love it) and back and sides too.
The sound is awesome as well, which is exactly what you’d expect from a Fender guitar.
Although this problem can not be labeled as the most common one, it does not help us in the event that the problem actually arises. We’ve provided you with some helpful tips on how to take care of your iPhone and iPad chargers without having to drive to Apple stores and spend extra money.
Unfortunately, we can not guarantee that our tips will work 100%, because it is possible that serious damage has occurred and only Apple can repair it. The cable may be corrupt, but for the purposes of this article we assumed that you have already tried a new cable.
1. Turn off your iPhone
First, turn off your phone and prepare a hand lamp. Divide the lamp into the charging port and find any particles that could block the normal operation of the charger. Remember, for example, the powder not only stays in the opening, but is additionally anchored at every press of the charger. Pay special attention to the side walls and the rear wall of the entrance. Gently shake the device, but do not blow it.
2. Serious tools
If you have the option, use a compressed air cylinder. Here you will need some kind of stick to remove dirt, but it is not recommended to use metal cases. It is very convenient, for example, (not yet used) toothbrush to reach the deep and narrow areas of the entrance. Then use compressed air to remove the displaced particles from the charging port.At this point, you may notice that material comes from the entrance. Also, if this does not happen, try plugging in the Lightning cable, and when your device is recharging, do not try anything more, but just try to make it work again. Either way, pay attention to the top and rear part of the input where the Lightning connectors are located: aim the portions of the input, which you know you can not damage with the selected gadget.
3. Emergency exit
This point really comes to an end when we do not see any other way out and when we have tried all the other ways of solving the problem. If you do not agree with this step, do not try to force it.So, you will need a sewing needle, and you will use a curved, round part to clean the charging inlet. Very gently slide on the back of the Lightning sponge. Again, it may happen that you will notice a drama or small particles coming from the opening. These particles can be so small that we are no longer sure that we have seen it properly. We begin to wonder if we have decided on a piece of metal from the charging port.In one of the tests carried out by AppleInsider, after the first needle cleaning test, things were moved in the right direction, but the Lightning cable still did not fill the device, the good news was that it went deeper inside. They continued with gentle cleansing and after a few minutes the cable was connected normally, and the iPhone was charging as if nothing would be wrong.
4. Call the experts
If you have tried charging with a proven cable, and if you have carried out all of the above cleaning cleaning tricks, but the charger still does not work, it’s time to seek professional help. It may be an authorized repairer who will probably hold the phone for some time and, after all luck, return it in an active state.In the event of a hardware failure, unfortunately, cleaning and similar grips will not help much.
