Having made music for 20 years, I’ve learned to not stress about it when you feel like you’ve lost your inspiration.
Give it some time, and it will come to you – but looking for it and spending energy on it doesn’t help very often.
Leave your place of work/art, take a walk, and most importantly, do something relaxing that frees your mind from any sort of obsessive thinking.
That will give your consciousness space, which in turn gives your ideas energy, and you’ll be back on track again.
Just don’t force it.

I love coffee. And, let me admit I love beats, too.
What coffee and beats have in common, in my case, is that I can’t go one day without a good dose of them.
I do have a healthy addiction to caffeine, and I’m a beat junkie – I need that shit.
I have inside of me a huge, burning passion for music with dope beats.
Whatever genre, I don’t care – if the beats are fat and kind of dirty, I’m gonna love it.
And I need my fix every single day. And now I want to get you hooked, too. Continue reading Fanu’s Breaks ‘n’ Beats Podcast # 1→
Here’s a quick way to do an effects rack in Ableton Live so you can switch between effects real quick using only one knob and feel like a knobbery king.
It’s amazing for some badass live-ism, of course. It does get you all the chicks (fact: it may only get you some beard-strokers in the front so I take no responsibility here).
