Monoverse on Persistence, Burning Out, and Grinding at a Career for 9 Years.

In this episode, I chat with an amazing trance producer known as Monoverse. Santos is a good friend of mine, and he was one of the first guests on the podcast over 2 years ago.

In this episode, we break down how he’s managed to struggle and grind for over 9 years. We discuss how he manages to stay persistent and how he’s dealt with burnouts. We also talk about his new label, Parallels, which is a sub label under Future Sound of Egypt.

This episode is brought to you by EDM Foundations.

EDM Foundations is my course for new producers, those who’ve been producing for under 12 months, or even those who’ve just started. You can learn more about it here.

The whole idea of the EDM Foundations course is that you learn the fundamentals of music production by actually doing and not just learning concepts. The course consists of 12+ hours worth of streamable video where I walk you through the creation of 3 songs, and give you advice for creating your own original.

We’ve had over 600 people sign up for the course, many of them have had great results. Hope to see you in there.
