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

I've used an acapella from a pack, which is unusual for me, and was wondering if it's been used in any tunes before. I don't recognise it from anything myself but I'm a bit hit and miss with knowing popular tunes:

That vocal isn't really doing that track any favours. It's out of key and just doesn't suit. Get rid of it.
 
Break is nice though

Tbh I was in two minds whether to sack it off and have no vox, and just shorten the drop.
 
Just without anything else over the top of the break it sounds like it's missing something.
 
Though this could just be my trademark overthinking things again

+1
 
The vocal coming in straight in at 1.06 really takes something away from the drop and then is a bit distracting and sometimes a bit out of key... the secondary drop at 1:50 (without vocal) is really nice and weighty tho. You should build the track around that bit IMO.

That vocal needs to be destroyed and never spoken of again. Other than that it's decent.

Haha, I just thought it was a bit different though I myself wasn't totally sold on it.
 
I guess if there's ever any doubt in your mind you should drop the sound.
 
I will get rid and bring that later part forward, I think that was also a good suggestion.
 
Cheers

Mad a playlist of nearly all our productions over the last few years. About three due on vinyl not listed yet though.

Pretty varied if I do say so myself. I'm not sure we really have a style. Is that a good or bad thing? Both I guess?

Couple of my new ones, each were being looked at by two big labels but after a few email back and forths etc they decided they weren't quite there which was pretty gutting tbh, so today I'm sending them out & about again. Any pointers welcome. Techy dancefloor business.

Both sound well produced, Traditional's  bassline does sound almost exactly like Noisia - Facade, though.
 
*Edit, I see this has been mentioned already, ignore me

I really like Greyscale, got a cool Blade Runner vibe. I'm surprised that no one's picked it up yet cos it's dead gud. Any chance you'll be releasing it on Repertoire? I'd love to buy a copy.

Safe mate. Not really sent it about much really. Not sure what to do with it. Probably well over a year old now.

You do have a style, it's quite old skool liquid/jazzy, just with more modern sounding production.
 
Like an updated version of the type of tunes you'd hear on the Artcore series.
 
Inevitability is my favourite of them, or possibly Natural Resource.
 
It was a good shout from someone before about Blu Mar Ten, a fair few of the tunes are reminiscent of their style
