Making Music

WITH KEITH MILLS

FMM114 – Define Your Sound with the Connections Phenomena

For most producers, the quest to create original music is near impossible… Even trying to have your own sound is a whole other battle which many fight, and lose, every single day. But what if I told you there was a special method, in fact a whole new way of thinking, that could set off…

FMM113 – How to Guarantee Your Disappointment in the Studio

As electronic music producers, the very art that we pursue brings with it a never ending abundance of options… Just think of all the steps it takes to write a piece of music… from conceiving the idea to composing it, producing it, engineering the track, and then finally shipping it out into the world. Then…

FMM112 – Alan Oldham

As artists our mission is to try to take the music we love, and the culture we find ourselves in, further than it was before. But it’s very rare that an artist comes along and influences an entire genre, and even rarer to do that over multiple creative disciplines… Well this week I’m joined by…

FMM111 – Rodriguez Jr.

Learn synth, arrangement & mixdown techniques with Rodriguez Jr. in his Aulart Masterclass here.

FMM110 – Make Collaborations a Success

We’ve all heard the phrase “two heads are better than one”.

FMM109 – Hack Your Way to Better Productivity

We all want to see progress in our lives, yet I see so many people running around without ever actually moving forward. Like having your foot down on the accelerator but the wheels are just spinning in the mud. Being busy but not getting anything done. I know for a FACT that if that’s happening…

FMM108- Establishing Your Name as an Artist

As a producer it’s not uncommon to enjoy writing various genres of music, and to want to get it all out in the world. But exploring several creative avenues while establishing your name as an artist can be a confusing business… “Can I release multiple genres of music under one name?” “Should I release my…

FMM107 – Your Plan B is a Waste of Time

Most of us have got an idea of where we want to go in life, and what we’d like to achieve with our music…. You might call it your Plan A. Your True North that guides you towards your goals, or the path that you hope will lead you towards your version of success. But…

FMM106 – Enamour

If you’re like most producers, navigating the music industry can seem like a pretty daunting prospect. With little information out there on the ‘right’ way to approach labels, or how to actually get your music in the hands of the right people, making an impact in an industry often working behind closed doors is a…

FMM105 – 5 Ways to Create Inspiration

As an artist, there’s no better feeling than being inspired to write music that lights you up. But as you may know all too well, inspiration rarely lasts forever. And when it does suddenly disappear from us, we’re left in a place that NOBODY wants to be in… The creative rut. As painful as it…
