The Finish More Music Podcast is back for a super special episode this week as we sit down with Toronto house maestro Demuir!
Looking at Demuir’s recent release history on labels such as Hot Creations, Desolat, Elrow and Heist (to name a few), it’s hard to imagine that he once took a near decade-long break from writing music entirely…
But in this interview, we sit down to discuss the reasons why he left the game, and more importantly, how he bounced back to become a truly one of a kind force in modern dance music.
Not only is he now incredibly prolific, Demuir oozes a deep musical wisdom that’s an absolute gold mine for any aspiring producer, and carries a unique creative philosophy that so many people can be inspired by.
We discuss everything from maintaining your consistency and integrity as a creative, to getting your music heard and thriving as an artist no matter the circumstances…
…and SO much more.
This is hands down one of my FAVOURITE interviews ever, and there’s so much gold in here you’ll probably want to listen a few times over…
Make sure you’ve got a paper and pen handy, and get stuck in with us!
- Don’t give up on old track sketches – what may have not been valuable to you at the time, may be now.
- Know that you have something unique to offer, and let that guide your creativity.
- Discipline is the guarantor to the value that you believe you have.
- Let the music speak for itself – the output of your belief and discipline will be what gets you noticed.
- “Hard work will always trump talent.”
- “Be committed to the fact that you have value, and your uniqueness will drive that forward.”
