Default I'm Going Bandcamping.

So, I just released my first album on Bandcamp, just to try the site out since I've never used it before. It's composed of most of the tracks I had up on Soundcloud up until this point.

Should I pursue a career in Music Production? Feel free to leave any questions and thoughts you may have here.

Can't sell remixes for cash, since dat shiet ain't yo's. You can work off donations though, so o well.

I'd say pursue a career in music production, but it's not high on demand at the time. You're definitely good though, no doubt.

honestly bandcamp is way better because

1. no limit for space and
2. possible money/donations


this is pretty coul man haha. though if you are seriously considering going into music production as a career, it is an incredibly difficult and unforgiving one. It's much easier now because of the internet and services like bandcamp/youtube that allows a bit of profit to be made, but as a JOB it's super difficult and the material you put out has to grab a maximum target audience and be consistent with releases.

also remixes can be a lot of trouble if you're making money off it due to royalties. if you can make original material it'll help you way more.

I'd say, don't try anything professionnal if what you make doesn't really attract much attention outside FFR's community and a dozen of guys that are interested in your music.
You can still try sending your demos to labelz and all that, but I've got to say, it's way better to make music when you want to and the way you want to, with no limit or particular directives. Because that's certainly what's going to happen, if you aren't really lucky that is.
