The struggle to get stuff onto pro labels is just so mentally exhausting. 6 years I’ve been producing, fair few releases now, first album this year. I had two tunes signed to a well known pro label but then canned, another tune considered by another known one but then not taken eventually.
 
It’s all taking it’s toll recently, what with the dayjob meaning roughly 70hrs every week working pretty much always solo, hardly any sleep.
 
I’ve seen £218 for all of this. It’s difficult when you get to this stage but also I’m well aware that to quit now would be blindingly stupid as I’m so close.

There are plenty of examples of people who spent a long time in the hinterlands for whom it suddenly all clicked into place and they blew-up (relatively speaking). That said there's plenty of people who just simply don't have it in them to write decent tunes (that guy who posts on here occasionally and talks about units being a prime example). I don't know which applies to you but pretty much all talented people get recognised eventually and some who aren't do aswell so best to stick with it.

Oh yeh I’m not giving in even if it takes til I’m 40 (only another 7 years)
 
I understand the sound required from big labels much better now after working a bit with Charge and Bad Taste, actually had a colab with Swift until he decided it wasn’t quite good enough. As obvious as it might seem sometimes you overthink things and fuck up the balance of the mix without realising.
 
There’s a couple of my tunes on the previous page, inc the former-colab one.
 
I’m taking most of April off work to camp in the studio and try to get an LPs worth of pro tunes done. One’s that’d be good for a Bad Taste or better. It’ll be amazing having this time, as even though I get about 9pm-12am after work I’m often well tired.

Yeah tunes are good - got that 98-02 tech sound which I love. The first one would mix well with Noisia - Facade btw.

Thanks a couple of people have said that - that's just about what I'm aiming at though, late 90s-mid00's ideas, but more current sound.
 
Just got to keep at it eh
