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!

I haven't done any all nighters or early morning session s yet but I take my laptop into work and get on it during my lunch break
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.

: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
