cool stuff rich. i really admire how you (and EVO) can bang so many tunes out - i mean you must do about 5 - 10 in the time i do one
my honest opinion, for what its worth - id like to see you take one of the strongest ones (like imo that recent Dnb one or the psy trance one i commented on before) and take a couple of weeks - or however long it takes - really refining it, polishing it, referencing etc etc then youd have a totally pro tune ready to send off to labels or whatever.
I might say something similar for EVO, such a great sound and skills - id love to see that...
IMO as ever though dudes....
Yes you are correct but let me give a bit of perspective;
When I came back to producing I found it reasonably easy getting stuff signed if I bothered to send out but I had this moment where I realised I wanted to get to a level I was genuinely satisfied with.
So this for me means making a bunch of potentials and then going back to 2 or 3 tracks I think have good potential based on feedback and finishing them
I am open minded as to when this point is (if ever) reached
I used to take months over a track and sweat blood to get them finished but kept later looking back thinking I should have left them alone and come back to them.
I will deffo finish some of these, quite likely the 2 u mentioned.
Massive amounts of tracks are released, but I kinda don't see the point as for me the majority are pretty crude although can be great sounding in terms of engineering.
I too turn out pretty crude tracks but I don't see the point in putting them out there.
BUT you have pricked my consciousness a bit and it may spur me on to finish some now - which was my plan anyway, but there's nothing like a jolt from a third party
Howz your DnB track coming on?
My advice re DnB - masses of tracks all sound the same - this really comes to light when at something like a BBQ I notice. Friends say to me all they can hear is a drum beat.
