    we're doing a Blu Mar Ten Reddit Q&A at 19:30 gmt this wednesday (20th) if you want to dip in with any questions.
    I fucking loathe production chat but Michael BMT will be there too and he loves it, so you can ask him that sort of stuff

    Wow, that's depressing. I thought artists as established as BMT could make a living from it, obviously didn't expect they'd say they were rich beyond belief but still....

    p.s. the reddit is a good read, lots of production stuff in there

    It's a shame honestly :/, I just don't think DnB (the non commercial stuff at least.) is big enough to actually make a living out off unless you're constantly dj'ing.
    And even then I can imagine it's not the best paying job out there.

    hate to break it to you dude, but most electronic musicians have day jobs, unless you get really big, but there is also no certainty you'll stay big so it's best to have something to fall back on.

    it's not a bad thing to devote yourself to music, but it's not a clever thing to put all your eggs in one basket.

    Don't get me wrong, wasn't thinking about myself as this a hobby for me and I think gigging etc. is a young persons game (well, mostly) - I'm too old I think (lol!). Just I figured some more established artists would actually do okay out of it, they certainly deserve to.
