    There's probably already a thread but its 2021 so I'm going to go ahead and make an new one. This should be a good place to ''Get To Know The CreativeSXN'', talk about the process of making art, showing off work, getting feedback etc. Mostly music focused but all forms of art applicable

    To start -

    What's your name?

    When did you begin making music?

    How long does it usually take you to create a song from start to finish?

    @CreativeSXN \\

    I started making music back in 2016, on and off as life goes. My first real project is coming out this year, I think I'm finally at a place where I'm comfortable talking about things in the manner I want to and have a good understanding of what makes for good music.

    Been making music since the early 2000s. Seriously since since like 2005.
    Usually takes me 2-4 hours to write, record and mix a song.

    d--- since 2005? I was turning 6 that year lol. What made you really want to start?

    For me when I heard Doris by Earl Sweatshirt that s--- really changed my life, just the way he weaved words together and told stories was incredible. I had always been into music but thats when I knew I wanted to really do it. Before that I was (somewhat still am) into filmmaking, specifically screenwriting. So I'm sure you can imagine how much GKMC changed my entire approach too

    Oh wow, ya I was 15 in 2005. But I grew up just loving music and with my struggles in my environment I grew up in I related to the culture. Listened to a lot of Big, PAC, and Nas. But when the SSLP dropped in 1999 I heard Rock Bottom off my older step brothers copy of the album and I related to it at a young age. I felt like if he could do it, so could I. Like I said I was writing songs at a young age. I was writing and recording in 2001-2002 around 11-12 years ago as a way of coping with life. But high school is when I started taking it serious.

    Nah bro, nobody gives a flying f--- about my music anyways so I won't push it for too long. Besides my wife and a few SXN80 boys nobody is listening nowadays, so I don't see a reason for releasing stuff tbh

    I'll turn into a full time listener :khaled:

    How long does it usually take you to create a song from start to finish?
    uninterrupted 2 for the framework, few more hours to dub and mix, do retakes

    Started making music in 2010 because a bunch of kids at our high school started rapping, so me and my buddy, Logan, who I still make music with, decided to make a diss song on all the kids lmao. We did a remix to Lookin’ Boy making fun of kids at school and s---, then started to make more serious songs. They were all over famous beats. I quickly learned I couldn’t rap at all, so I started to learn how to mix/master in some capacity so I could be useful. It’s funny listening back to Logan’s old s--- on datpiff, the mixing was f---ing a--- compared to what it is today because I literally had no idea what I was doing. Then I guess my cousin thought I had more to do with the production than I actually did in reality, so he asked me if I had “one of those controllers with the cool lights that move and s--- to make beats.” I lied my a--- off and said I did just to sound cool lmaooooo. Went home and immediately bought one just so I didn’t look like a liar. Tried to mess around on it for a year and found it overwhelming as f---. Started to really get the hang of it in like December of 2019, and have been putting stuff out 100% produced by me since July.
