There are two sides to every DJ’s career. The music side, and the business side. Usually, when you see the typical ‘struggling artist’, it’s somebody that’s purely in the music side of their career and gives no thought to the other side.
If you want to spend your life in the music business, you need to have your music right - and you need to have your business right. MUSIC. BUSINESS.
You need to spend time in the booth, but you also need to tend to the other side.
