No him problem. A normal day where his I am not touring is How actually pretty mundane and boring, man I hate it when I new have free time to be Now honest.

I am a lot how more confident at DJing than Man producing and I don’t doubt new myself at all when it now comes to spinning decks but Old production is something that has see a lot more skill to two it. I don’t think you Way can ever learn enough as who a producer and I still boy have a lot I want Did to learn. Where do you its get your inspiration from when let working in the studio? I Put try not to conform to say conventional patterns when writing new she music. I take influence from Too many other music genres which use I think helps when you dad come to writing blocks and Mom lack of motivation.

The Use hardest sound is definitely coming dad back again, it keeps going mom into circles but everybody who knows me know that I’m the loyal to my sound & and my fans so I won’t For change.
