Anyone still motivated to make a full-lenght album?

Post by Heigen5 » Sat Oct 19, 2019 11:10 pm

Well yeah, I remember that back then I was able to get motivated on the bigger projects, so making a full-length album didn't feel so overwhelming back then, but for years I haven't been able to get myself being arsed for that anymore.

I make track by track and also jump between different kind of genres. I might be ready to give a full length album a shot though AGAIN. I would be keen to make a 'club-party' album that makes the people destroy the dancefloor with their feet.
I might be ready for the challenge. I mean it would rock to make an album full of club music that would then be played in the night-clubs. Some tunes could be slower tempoish, but anyway - I would like to make the crowd cheer, scream and MOVE.

How about you, have you ever created an album and are you still motivated for that?

I'd like to compile some old and new tunes I've made into an album some day, but right now I'm trying to just get a 3-4 tracks EP ready to send to a label friend and see what he thinks. Got loads of musician friends here in Oslo, so I can probably get some of them to remix the stuff too. I'd also like to save up money to cut some vinyls with dubstep, but that's more of a long term project.

Good luck! :cool_4:

As life ain't linear enough yet, I need to see if I'll go for an album or not. I feel motivated today, but tomorrow it might be changed again...
Life... :phucked up:

Unless all the tracks are joined by a common theme - EP or single by single is the way to go - audiences don't expect albums anymore but they do expect new output on a fairly regular basis. On the point of "motivated" now that I'm more or less housebound thanks to COVID19 I have the time to do a full project... so maybe maybe...

Yeah, there's no real reason to make a full album. Sure it would be cool, but it's not a must - as we can sell them one by one too through Spotify or any other online shop. :thumbup2:

I disagree with that people don't expect albums anymore. Lots of good albums coming out all the time, like Tyler The Creator's new IGOR, Grimes' new Miss Anthropocene, Flying Lotus' Flamagra, just to mention a few from recent time. Working on an album is a big undertaking and it's a different way of presenting your music than just releasing singles. I don't think that much of the "market" when making stuff, it's better to focus on making good music.

Well you know what guys, I started to make an album. It's gonna be mostly electronic mixed with rap. Techno, EDM, Club, Breaks, DnB, House, Dance, Chillout, Electronic... mixed with singing/rapping.
My first tracks is almost done. Trying to release it in the autumn. :)
Too much musical discipline ain't a good attitude. One rather lets the intuition fly and get a good flow in the producing side.
+ also giving every track enough time too. Awesome! :party2:
