Would you have been able to get to where you are now as a business without your brother as a partner?owensands wrote:Im 40 and Im a master at ableton(enough to write techno) and I have three kids and a wife and a 9 to 5 full time job. I own a digital label with my brother that releases to beatport, itunes, juno, traxsource, trackitdown, amazon, etc. The label is picking up over the last year or two but it will never be anough to quit my day job. Nor should you. You dont need more time. You should have plenty even with a full time job.
I have recently started some collaboration with my brother in law. I have produced for years in isolation which has been a great way of finding my own sound and ways to motivate myself over the years. But I also think it has held me back as motivation ebbs projects would fall by the wayside. However I have found collaborating on a project to be incredibly rewarding, liberating and just good fun! It's great to work on a track and at some point through the process say "okay now you see what you can do with this" It's keeps the creativity and energy flowing.
