Haulix Weekly Recap #72 – “Cows Don’t Look Like Cows On Film.”

Hey there, everyone. It’s the end of yet another work week, which means it is time once more to recap our recent activity and tease what the future might hold. Before we get there, however, I wanted to introduced you to Thugli. They’re an incredibly production outfit, and earlier today they shared a Drake remix that is destined to be a highlight of your weekend. Check it out:

Each and every Friday we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.

Kicking things off with development updates, I have to be honest and say there is nothing major to report this week. Our dev team has patched a few minor bugs in recent days, but otherwise they have been hard at work on some longterm projects I’ve been asked not to discuss just yet. I will say, however, that we are evolving. The Haulix you have known and loved will always be here, but we’re currently working on rounding out our growing arsenal of anti-piracy tools in hopes of redefining digital security in 2015. I’ll tell you more when I’m allowed to do so.

Before we get to the blog updates, there is one company-wide promotion I need to tell you about. This April, just after the cold from winter has left your bones, the Haulix team will be hosting a panel at LAUNCH music conference in Lancaster, PA. There will be a ton of great guests, including nightly performances by some of the biggest bands in music today. It’s our first real conference appearance in over half a decade of existence, and we would be thrilled if you could make it out to join us. Here is a recently released poster revealing the first round of conference talent:

On the blog end of things, this week was a wild one. We ran this incredible podcast with Clinton Sparks, which over a 1000 of you already listened to (Thanks!), and I think the longform content really held its own. I also put five reviews in the can for future blog updates, but for the sake of promotion I’m not going to reveal their identities at this time. Sorry!
