What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?

I wish i would have been a dj first then a music producer second. I think things work out a little better and quicker for artists when they approach the electronic music scene as a Dj then slowly work into music production when the moment is right.

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?

I love my life. I am enjoying the journey a lot more at this point. Event though life can stress me out at time I am having a blast and i really dont let any challenge own me.

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?

Put in the hard work for favorite Daw and VSTS: read the manuals, watch tutorials, try out and know exactly what every knob does and how it effects sound, then make a beat with what you have learned.

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?

Find the groove. create at least an 8 bar loop with that groove for a particular section. Then make various versions of those loops rather that nit picking every little thing on that one loop. Pick the best ones. Delete the lame ones.

Don't be lazy.

Organize your track by name and color.

Put in the time to add the layers and fx needed to polish the track. So many producers forget that the track really comes together and sounds complete at the end when you add the spit shine to it.
