All you upcoming producers and djs etc, dont you get pissed off when you tell people that u want to be involved in the music industry and you can tell they are just like " yeah but that wont ever happen " they dont say it but you can tell they think it...

Fuck Uni, i been to college and studyed music tech, music is the only thing i love and the only thing i can concentrate on without getting bored shitless.

anyone else feel the same?

I say go for it!
Its a very tough industry to get into and i've often thought about trying to get into something like that and making a carrer of it, but I don't think I could pull it off...
You gotta chase your dreams though mate, if your determined enough, you'll do good (y)

i feel the same. and id love to work in the industry, but realistically, it is quite unlikely. although thats not a reason to not go for it. i mean music is my passion, and if i could produce for a living, id be over the moon, but making enough money to live, eat, pay rent, pay bills ect. isnt gonna happen in drum and bass, at least not until you've been around for a while, got a name for yourself and start getting booked to dj all the time. so the best of luck to you. but its gonna take alot of graft.

Totally agree with most of that - networking is the most important thing, esp in electronic music, much more important than getting a music degree or college courses (I think music can't be examined - its too much a matter of opinion as to whether something is any good..)

But yeah making money from music is difficult, but definately rewarding if you're committed enough..
