project: dead drive mix tapes pt1 "origin"

The number one killer of most music production is: "not finishing anything"

Obvious? Yes.
The problem itself isn't procrastination of effort, it's the unwillingness to call something done and take the next steps (relaesing it).

I'm still in the process of setting up and getting my gear dialed in (6 months later0. Don't get me wrong. I've been set up and recording and mixing - a least 5 different times - I've also changed my ideas about what gear is actually necessary to keep around and at my current age, I believe I'm at the purge/minimalism part of the cycle.

That's another subject/post.

I'm at the point where I'm collecting/organizing/backing up and as expected, I've got a lot of material buried in project files that are now organized chronologically. With bullheaded determination I declared that every one of these projects would either be mixed or catalogged as "shit to never be opened again". Once mixed, I began categorizing them by style and even grouping them together in separate "collections". These individual collections may eventually become actual albums but for now I call them:

"the dead drive mixtapes"
