Ugh...i hate being a perfectionist. Like hate with a passion. But its part of who I am. I’ve been slowly obsessing over this mix 2 a song I was planning 2 release Saturday...as in last Saturday. I guess in the whole scheme of life its not that big of a deal. As I’ve been actively away from the music scene 4 a few years now I'm sure the anticipation for the track isn’t nearly as big as MY anticipation 2 unleash it on the world. But I’m rather excited cuz my break is almost over. Like After the whole fuckery that was my life the last 3yrs I have a lot 2 say. Those that know me personally, know about all the things that have transpired in my personal life. From home foreclosures, death, divorce & parenthood...there’s been a lot going on.
Life has changed everything about me. It's changed my outlook, my character, the way I approach any & everything...so u can safely assume that it's changed my music. I would like 2 believe u can hear that change in my songs & my approach 2 making records. Like i can say its weird 2 not be defined by the music. 2 not be consumed by my studio life. At the bare minimum its a daily struggle 2 just be...2 not be writing or recording or planning 2 write or record. On 1 hand i lose my spontaneity, but on the other it gives me more time 2 make the songs i do create (hopefully) stronger & more impactful (is that a word...or nah?) (eh...actually i hate reading posts where people do that...cuz that’s lame...or na...just playing)
4 whatever reason, my perfectionist nature is being challenged by wanting 2 make sure that every sound I share...every piece of me I try 2 share...is intact & engaging & is a good pay off 4 my years out in the wilderness. So i go back 2 being all encompassed in balancing 808's with bass licks & squiggles, & that my vocals r present & 2 the forefront, and that this hook hits u in the face while making u sing along by the time it repeats. And when that’s all said & done...i can go 2 song number 2
