I promised that I’d be getting back to posting tracks and breakdowns, but some things last week got in the way: Trying to locate a bat in the adjacent room to the studio, a recording mistake that I attempted to fix via Cool Edit Pro (which I gave up trying to figure out and ended up re-recording everything), and just everyday life in general.
The only goal I ever had music-wise was putting out material that was well received and respected. I feel that I accomplished that – one good review was always enough to make my effort seem worth it.
Now, years after my last video project and even longer after my last full-length mixtape, and what seems like eons since my last battle, I now realize how much I miss it. When I was more active, I led the “double-life” – long nights in the basement studio working into the early mornings or late weeknight gigs while balancing a full-time job. But it was that double life and working on music that gave me balance.
For the past few years, I’ve been working at my normal job, considering myself a “semi-retired” turntablist. But being surrounded 5 days a week by people who share none of your interests is difficult. The need to be heard through my apparently dope-but-completely-unmarketable skills has never been stronger.
Thanks for reading this rambling post; I felt I had to get this off my chest. Maybe this explains why I even started doing all of this in the first place.
Track should be finished and posted with a breakdown soon.
