Today I’m joined by DJ, producer and multimedia artist Rashid Ajami.
Now Rashid has been releasing music for well over a decade on the likes of Armada, Anjunadeep, Get Physical and Einmusika to name a few, but the road to releasing on these top labels was far from plain sailing…
Like most producers, Rashid has had to deal with his own fair share of rejection, creative blocks and harsh self-criticism.
But in this episode, Rashid reveals what it took to come out more prolific and more creative than ever…
In this episode you’ll learn:
- The importance of having an artistic concept in order to guide your creative output
- Why consistently finishing music has got to be at the core of your success, no matter how far along the journey you are.
- How to get signed and get your music heard on those big labels.
- How to handle the inevitable rejections that come with being a creative.
And I’ve got a challenge for you: try to walk away from this episode without feeling super pumped to get into the studio and make music…
I bet you can’t do it!
Now let’s get stuck into this hugely motivating and inspiring session with Rashid Ajami.
Rashid Ajami and Booka Shade ‘Memories’ is out on August 20th on Blaufield Music. Look out for his NFT collection dropping on XLR8R Marketplace any day now…
