Your favorite artists have more in common with you than you might think: First and foremost, they really just want to have fun making music they love, and being open to an amazing creative experience. From major music icons such as Aviccii and Skrillex, to forward-thinking artists such as XXXY, check out some wisdom:
"Your editing style doesn't' matter as much as having a really cool idea." Skrillex
"The great thing today, is that anyone can learn how to make a track: it's not about skills, it's about knowing what makes a good track." Avicii
"I experienced long dry spells when I was unable to make music. Now I have realized that if things aren't going well, I just have to stop and do something else; go for a bike ride, read a book or have a mix." XXXY
"Some of the most promising work I'm sent is by kids making music on headphones. Likewise some of the most awful music I've heard has been made in million-pound studios full to the brim with expensive hardware." Submotion Orchestra
"Don't be afraid of abandoning a track if it doesn't feel right." Baio
"Working on depth and atmosphere is what makes a tune sound full of life." Kasket
