getting creative with music advice

The process of making art is totally different for everyone. Some like to meditate while some like to get high. The end product always comes out, no matter what. But wouldn’t you rather fully nail the time you’re investing in your art? So let’s start with our first edition of “Mind Over Music.” In this, we’ll go over how your mindset is the biggest key & what can you do to make the most out of your session!

1. Reflect on the times you feel most creative

Now you can sit at your shrine for hours to see nothing coming out. There will be days when you’ll be so creative that you can go on for hours without losing any creative juice, but most of the time that isn’t the case. So your best bet is to close your eyes, go backwards in time and introspect. When are you able to make the most satisfactory music, music that you can listen to again & again? For some, day time works and for others midnight works the best. Personally, after I came to the conclusion that I feel most inspired/creative during night and I’m pumped enough to make any further mix adjustments in the morning when my ears are totally fresh. Doing this will make everything straight for you & you’ll be able to make the most out of your time & activities.

2. Stop overthinking & comparing yourself to others

Your subconscious works in a really magical yet pretty indecisive ways sometimes. It can be pretty demotivating coming back to your project and seeing that you’re not turning up to your music like you turn up to your current favorite tune. You sure can get lost and end up deleting that project and doing what your subconscious says (“hey, psst, drop this project and make something like what you just heard”) or you can just stop overthinking and go back to your tune after half an hour and start with a fresh mind. Real talk, some might not be there in terms of ideas, sound design, mixing and mastering, but you gotta realize that everyone has their own story, everyone is in their own stream. And hey, if you keep on flowing you might end up in the ocean someday!

3. Allot some time to add something that distinguishes you

With the amount of tools that are available right now is just mind blowing. Get to know how everything works and you’re one unstoppable producer. But, this wide availability of software has caused nothing but saturation in the dance music industry. So, if you want to grow your name/brand, you have to offer somethingput something on the table that people just can’t reject. Not saying that you should go out of your way to add something, but thinking of something on a regular basis that resonates with you and your music can add that extra one percent to your art. This could be anything, the type of sounds you use, the groove, your arrangement etc. This thing will come with time obviously. Just keep on doing your thing, believe in yourself and see how you evolve as a musician.

4. Approach your session with a positive mindset & attitude

Getting your stuff out there can be hard. Having a dream to put out a song/ep on your favorite Soundcloud network/ YouTube channel/ Label and seeing nothing working out can be heartbreaking. This can totally mess up with your brain and how you approach your music. Your session or even days might get wasted just thinking about it, if you’re serious enough. Like I mentioned in the previous point, staying positive is the key. “You are in the control of the situation, the situation is not controlling you.” So, the next time you feel depressed, before approaching your next session, write down 10 positive things and say them repeatedly until you’re positive enough that you can make music tension free, innovate and stop the negative thoughts coming to the front part of the brain from your subconscious.

5. Keep your distractions away.

As obvious as it sounds, it is one of the most important point to fully utilize your time. There is nothing wrong with checking your socials but browsing through your socials for a prolonged period of time at the cost of your music, is wrong. If you’re unorganized, adding some schedule definitely won’t hurt. The best way I can think to make the most can be to allot some time to social media before you start making music. Post updates if you want (“waddup fam, imma bout’ to make some heat rn.”) But once you’re done, keep your phone, tablet in another room, turn off the wifi on your computer and just get to work. Once you’re done, you know that you used every single second made the most out of your production session. But, if you do end up using your socials in between, “congratulations, you played yourself.”

5 key takeaways on the road to dominating businesses

Finding Reliable Moving Companies

If you move out with so many things to pack and unpack, you would be exhausted with the activity and even with just the thought alone! Your time is consumed in packing up all your things properly, then hiring a truck, driving the truck to your new pad, and then unload again these cartons, and the thought of these activities alone already makes you tired. Hiring then a professional moving company is a big consideration by most people to do these tasks.

Hiring a moving company is a big help and time saving decision, but if you got the wrong moving company, you will be in for more trouble than solution. If you want to guard yourself and your valuables, there are some suggestions on how to choose a moving company.

First consideration is to decide what things to move that you would want to assign to the moving company. This is because, whatever the moving company will handle will be reflected on their bill.

A common scenario is that homeowners would prefer to pack their own things and hire a moving company to loan, transport and unload their things. Moving cross-country entails more things to pack and move, and so others would rent a large truck, then get a crew to pack their things and load them in the truck. Employing a moving company to do everything, from packing of the things, to loading, transporting and unpacking of the cartons at the new location, is also an option for some.
The Path To Finding Better Movers

For as long as you have the budget, you can hire someone to do practically anything so you avoid all the inconveniences. If you lack budget in transferring, you will have to do some easy tasks and leave the more difficult ones to the few people you hire. It is advisable that you compare estimates from different moving companies and hire within your means. On the other hand, be reminded that the lowest price will not always give you the best service.
A Simple Plan For Investigating Companies

If unfortunate events would happen like loss and damage, it is better that the moving company you have chosen can adequately protect your properties from these events. If an unfortunate event would happen while your goods are transported, it is wise for you to choose a moving company who is adequately insured to cover your goods for your peace of mind.

Long distance moves has a big difference compared to local moves. Long distance moves practically would costs you more plus you need a more experienced and properly licensed moving company. Local movers would rather not accept moving from state to state or province to province. Long distance moves normally require specialized paper works and other matters related to this type of move. The lead time is one very important consideration you should know about long-distance move. Most long distance movers would need advance scheduling and notice.
