I’m a bedroom producer that works full time to pay the bills. I’m sure many of you are in similar situations and we all know, time comes at a premium. I never truly have time to make music so I have to MAKE time. Even then, if I get to sit down to write and create, it’s difficult to get in a groove when I can only manage about 2-3 hours at a time.
I’ve found that a way to address these challenges is to sit down with a clear goal in mind each time. Basically I have to bite off just a little of the project slowly. For example, one night I’ll just try to write some chords based on the key of the song I’m remixing or I’ll just work on the kick drum that night.
This is the kind of thing I do to get these remixes out. It’s not for the money, it’s for the love of the music.
