What will you take from it?

Key takeaways:

  • Be curious. Be studious.
  • Support those around you who are supportive of you.
  • Be wary of offering out your skills for exposure alone.
  • Don’t rush to release your tracks - allow yourself the time to evaluate them.


  • “When you finish a track, sit on it for a week or two...a week is not gonna kill your release schedule, or stop a label from signing it. The only thing it's going to do is benefit you in making sure that you are 100% satisfied with the product that you are about to send”
