    Was speaking to my good ol friend dark entity the other day and he said

    "i woke up at 4am this morning just to get 2 hours in on this tune before work"

    I mean i'm normally up into the early hours producing, but i've never got up before the sun rises just to crack on with a tune... was well impressed..

    so i wondered if any of you lot have got any funny stories of producing in unusual circumstances, or maybe lied to the missus/mates about summin just to get a few more hours in, maybe strange locations etc etc...

    go!

    still to this day dunno why it was spinning, a simple breeze is not strong enough to move a technic 1210 platter! it was a slow spin though

    partial to this aswell... makes ur lunch break go 10X faster though..

    used to bring my laptop in and rinse the beats the whole day as i was an apprentice and didnt have much to do. later realised i should of asked for work not sat on reason days on end.

    oh yeah i think the most entertaining part of doing music on drugs is scouering the streets for more, i raid the cupboard at the ortodontis. i spent a month awake on speed once to write techstep. lose focus completely. borrow money off pelople family that you dont even know. ended up doing a seven minute long bleep with different degrees of noise and distortion, called it 'the mully'

    Ditto. Thought I made a phenomenal track until I caught up on sleep and gave the "mix" a proper listen a couple days...upon hearing the first 32 beats I turned it off and deleted the project file in disgust.

    I quite often start beats on long distance trains. Get weird looks with a little midi keyboard on your lap...

    :D

    havent done anything too outragous, jsut the fairly standard battling with my eyelids cos ive got a really good vibe going on. the missus keeps me in check tbh, if i was single i think i could quite easily go for days without food/ sleep/ natural light to make tunes
