Since my second release on Glitter Cowboy two months ago, I've felt ever so liberated. For a long time I let my creative fire lie pretty dormant, opting instead to complain about having to kowtow to labels to progress or how hard it is to finish things. I wasted months procrastinating about getting the final mix and master out of an idea, because it just felt too difficult to get there. Maybe it was very almost finished, but the bass sounded a little muddy and the thought that something I would be showing to the world would anything less than perfect continuously prevented me from completion.
All of this changed when I realised that with my label, I no longer have to work to appease anyone or anything. My mix downs aren't always super clean and my masters are sometimes very different in volume and bass content, but that's ok because I made it anyway. Each release is a timestamped window into a period of my life and loves that gets to live on forever as a piece of music. I think that’s too special to pass up on, so I’m going to continue making a lot of beautiful, at times muddy music with the same pure intentions.
