Copy or Not to Copy

by Nikolozi Meladze

I had an interesting tweet exchange with Mr. Prydz a few days ago.

Eric Prydz:

Making music is like writing a story. Why tell other peoples stories when you can tell your very own!

Nikolozi:

@ericprydz true, however, it's hard to tell your own stories when you don't speak the language well yet. 'Copying' can be a starting point.

Eric Prydz:

@Nikolozi very true! But if you want to get people's attention then you need a sound of your own!

Moral of the story - if you haven't mastered the art of producing music try and copy pros, once you become good at it evolve your sound into something unique.
