When I started to learn to make music I found it super challenging. Sitting still at my laptop for hours on end, getting to know my way around ableton and learning how to create the sounds I could hear in my head.
Having worked in the music industry surrounded by incredible musicians for a long time, I felt huge pressure to step up. I nearly scrapped what you now hear as ‘Generation X’ as I’d listened to it so many times that I felt completely over it… that was until @djmrv stepped on to it. Then, the first track I ever finished became my first release on @toolroomrecords.
When I hear it played on the radio now, I still have to take a moment. It reminds me that the tough stuff is worth it and there are no short cuts but the rewards on the other side are endless.
Want to give THE biggest shout outs to these two renegades @djheidi & @jaguarworldwide for spinning ‘Generation X’ on the @bbcradio1dance weekend @bbcintroducing show. So much admiration and respect for both of you. Thank you 🌟 ICYMI • You can listen back here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000ykyt 🦋
