How do you deal with creative blocks or moments of self-doubt in your work?
No matter what type of creative I am (or are striving to become), self-doubt is one of the most challenging blocks to overcome if I truly want to find success. To keep this from happening, I just keep practice increasing my self-confidence so that when thoughts like, “I’m not good enough” come up, I can handle it and reverse my mindset. Also, I think about some of the greatest producers of all time, like how they became successful and how they got through all of their struggles.
Where do you see yourself and your career in music production going in the future?
I aim to build successful businesses around my craft. I envision starting my own record label, production company, or studio. To have creative control, develop new talent, and shape the direction of the music industry. Like any career, financial stability is an important expectation. I hope to earn a sustainable income from my work, whether through record sales, licensing deals, live performances, or other revenue streams associated with my productions. Now that I have been producing for 5 years I know my beats are good enough. I already work with a lot of great artist but it's never enough for me. You just have to keep going and that's what I'm doing!
