So yea, been quiet for ages on all fronts, mainly due to having my 3rd daughter (well, my missus gave birth, but you know what I mean). Her name's Francesca, and she is amazing!
My music has taken a bit of a hit (Try concentrating on music and looking after a 3 month old... doesn't work!), but not only from being a father, I also scored a new job to boot. Well, I say new, gone back to working at a place I used to work for, but it's pretty cool. And games!!! Been playing lots of games for some reason, perhaps due to a PC upgrade. So a lot has been taking my attention away from making music, but I have found time to dabble here and there, creating some Schranz and working on other projects.
Think the biggest problem has been my (awesome at the time, but shit after 3 months) idea to re-work my old track "Get 'em High". Seeing as I have made the switch from FLStudio to Cubase, I needed a project to sink my teeth into, and the creative juices just weren't flowing! So, had what I thought at the time was the great idea of doing that track again. It's turned into a bit of a nightmare for me to be honest!
Having not a lot of free time, I have been working on this track for 3 - 4 months in fits and starts, and you know what, after that long, I now abso-fucking-lutely hate the track... with a passion! It sounds awful, it's poorly written, and the mixdown/master is horrendous More so than the rest of my tracks! Yes, I think pretty much every track I have ever created is awful, but this one takes the prize, lol.
Now I don't normally release stuff that I really hate. Normally, I love my tracks, until they are released, then I hear them against other works, and begin to despise them! But, I hate this one now, and its still sat waiting to be uploaded. I am going to release it though, in the thinking that, A) It might only be that bad after hearing it 900,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times, and, B) If you guys get to hear me at my best, I think you should probably hear me at my worst too, coz it's the mistakes you learn from!
So, it's all mastered, probably be uploaded in a few hours, and then I am going to forget about it and move on to the next one!
Only unfortunate thing is, I have to write tracks in FLStudio still, then import the midi into Cubase to make the track! Which is weird, but I guess all my creativity has been with FL, and if that's the way it has to be, so be it!
Right, gotta go get Franky and Evie out of bed, the day begins now!
Laters, hopefully will have more content sooooon!
