    IV The Polymath on advice to aspiring producers: "Always challenge yourself. Try new things. Take risks. Listen to different music. Learn a new instrument or a new language or paint the walls in your studio a different color. Have fun. Try to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. Study your favorite producers, learn their methods & then invent your own. Carve your own lane. Market yourself. Use technology, be persistent, & don’t be afraid of rejection. Set realistic goals & then set new ones when they are reached. Above all else, just keep showing up. Work hard AND be patient. Other people will drop out, but you will still be standing. It might be 2 years or it might be 20 – just keep showing up." Read the full interview here:
