****WORDS OF ADVICE****
To all music producers and natural musicians: Experiment,Be Patient,Have Variety,Don't Copy, Be yourselves. The point is, if you really enjoy your art, then you will expand with your art. You will try new genres, even genres you formerly judged with hate, you may realize you like it. The whole point in music is to be unique,have variety and try new styles/genres/techniques etc. Also learn, yes that means read all you can. If you are an electronic musician then learn about additive synthesis,subtractive,HCM, Granular synthesis,etc it isn't exactly vital to learn these, but will give you a much better understanding of how synthesis works. plus you may make that "Phat" sound you was looking for much sooner.
If you are a singer or rapper, then expand your interests too. Rappers: try different flows on different beats,try music you may not like too, just experiment and also rap about new subjects don't follow the crowd. This also applies to singers too.
And with Natural Musicians my term for people who play natural instruments, experiment with your instruments, try tuning them to an unusual key you may find you get a good result sometimes sometimes may not but there's not harm in trying is there?.
You see music is about being yourselves, self expression. Music is an art like any-other.
Looking to collaborate with producers/musicians/singers/rappers of any genre & I'm also looking for graphic designers,web designers, video editors etc.. so get in touch if that sparks your interest & available skill set.
MUSIC = IT HAS NO GENDER IT HAS NO COLOR!! MUSIC IS UNIVERSAL!!
