Most of us are very impulsive humans and like to get the message across instantly! We want to score that collab NOW! Unfortunately, we live in a world where magic does not always happen on day one and a little bit of creativity is required!
Let’s take a look at 5 Key factors that will guarantee you success!
One of the most important chapters I read from one of my favorite books “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” by Richard Carlson is on the topic of Imperfection and how to deal with it.
Let’s all be honest here, the very thought of imperfection is a massive roadblock when it comes to seeking success in any field. We spend so much time dwelling on imperfections that we forget about the bigger picture. But in most cases, our mind is simply playing tricks on us. Let me explain.
If are just diving into this beautiful world of music or have been in the game a few years now, the rule stays the same! The only thing that truly matters is the mixing quality of your art form.
Let me explain!
We all know the famous “Bold or Brunette” argument. The bottom line is every person has his or her own opinion on things. Art, music, money, family…So what is the point of fighting the system when you know every opinion is different? Your art is your art, it’s...
WHY CONSISTENCY IS KING ?
Have you ever tried ice skating after a long break, riding a bike, or going for a long run after a lazy hiatus?
We all know how painful that day can be, but once you get in the groove of things everything becomes so easy once again!

Before even considering the music industry every artist needs to ask themselves one simple question. Am I in this for the money or the music? If the answer is money, then you better quit now!
If the answer is music then here are 5 tips on how to NOT fail as an artist.
1. CUT THE FAT
Get rid of all the people in your life who are not rooting for you. All those high school friends, drinking buddies etc. If they are not pushing you to win, get rid of them.
2. STAY IN THE ZONE
Do you want to get noticed in the music industry? We often hear that the music industry is oversaturated and unfortunately, this is true.

Unless you have been under a rock, as an electronic music lover it’s fair to say that Michael Bibi has been a name on your mind for a while now! Ever since his legendary flip of a “Hunger Games sample “Hanging Tree”, Bibi has been on an absolute tare. Now, the last time we got a taste of new Bibi was back in 2021 when we got treated with smash hits “Whispers In The Wind” as well as "Shaolin Dreams”.
I am not too sure if we even want to...
