    as you may have noticed ive been bang on the beats for the last months (hence why im not posting as much etc) and been getting quite sick results aswell with every new thing i / we start. and with our first vinyl release around the corner there really should be enough to keep me going.

    but anyways. no motivation at all for the last two days. just sitting aroundn doing bullshit. not even smoking weed lots or something.


    hmpf. you know that feeling? you really want to do something, you know youd have to because you got nothing else to do really but you just cant sit down and start something?

    sucks.

    fucking hate those days... normally happens when i have a free day and want to achieve lots (by achieve i mean waste time productivly, xbox, wanking, southpark,tunes etc) but for some reason, all my favourite past-times just dont work!

    At times like these i find myself walking around aimlessly and constantly checking the fridge? No idea why.

    its a very strange reaction. but what you can do is experiment with sounds instead of making tunes or bass or whatever, make strange soundscapes and delay and stuff

    Writers block or just not doing fuck all i tend to get on the case and download a midi file from the net and knock up a remix or just take a melody part from it and fuck around with it a bit. I normally find the most difficult bit is coming up with a new riff so this really gets rid of that whole process. For some reason i tend to get nothing done on tracks at the weekemd but loads done at crazytimes during in the week when i should be asleep....normally results i being late for work lol!

    yea i find that my creativeness (if that is a word) comes in wavs (no pun intended lol) of no more than 3 days at a time, with a day of just knowing that i'm not gan a achieve shit. and also if i have a break though with my production i seem to fuck out a day or 2 later. swings and roundabouts , but as long as ya keep progessing then its all good.
