The Creative Death Trap That Snags Unaware Music Producers

Let me know if this sounds familiar…

You focused diligently and put in the time to become a better producer.

Hours. Weeks. Months. Years.

Time spent developing skills like mixing, sound design, arrangement and songwriting.

Your music rapidly improved, track after track.

You could sit down and pump something out with ease.

You were on the UP. Going places. Excited for what the future might bring.

But then, somewhere along the way, something changed…

Instead of being motivated, confident, and creative—you now find yourself in a different place:

  • Starting tracks is now overwhelming and difficult. You mentally "blank" every time you open a new empty project.
  • When you finally get a new song underway (after a surge of inspiration), it quickly becomes a struggle.
  • No matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to finish what you start.

You feel like the producer version of Sisyphus. Constantly pushing uphill. Never “arriving.” Never finishing. 

How I launched myself out of the creative rut

My name is Sam Matla and I’m a music producer and entrepreneur from New Zealand. 

10 years ago I started producing music and instantly fell in love. It came naturally to me having played multiple instruments throughout my childhood and teen years.

I started off with a bang. I was producing 2-3 tracks per week. My output was insane.

And then it came to a grinding halt. 

I couldn’t finish anything. In fact, I could barely start a halfway-decent project.

I’d built up all these production skills, but I couldn’t use them.

That led to a long journey of attempted “fixes” that didn’t help solve the problem AT ALL…

"Band-Aid" Solutions (None of These Work)

  • I experimented with different DAWs and plugins, hoping for a spark of inspiration that would take me back to the good ol' days. In reality, I wasted a ton of time and it didn't help.
  • I tried "forcing it." I figured that I just needed more self-discipline and tried to just push harder. This made the problem worse and caused more frustration.
  • I watched a TON of tutorials, hoping that I'd learn a new technique or concept that would push me out of the rut I was in. Didn't work.
  • I took a week-long break from production. Figured that I was just burnt-out and needed a rest. The problem was still there when I returned.
  • I tried dozens of other tactics and strategies that were ultimately just band-aid solutions. They didn't get to the root of the problem.

What actually worked: systems, habits & focus

All the band-aid solutions I tried came up short.

Some would temporarily fix the problem, or give me inspiration for a few days, but inevitably I ended up right back in the same rut I was before.

I knew something needed to change, and I embarked on a long journey of learning about creativity, psychology, productivity, and ultimately why I couldn’t do what I wanted to do: produce music and actually finish it.

I read dozens of books, many of them 2-3 times over. I had hundreds of conversations with other artists. I studied, applied, and eventually came across a set of systems and habits that worked.

Not only did I get out of my rut, I launched out of it. Instead of feeling stuck, frustrated, and hopeless when working on projects…

…I felt like a creative genius. Confident. Optimistic. Results-focused.

And despite what marketing gurus will tell you, there wasn’t just ONE thing I did that changed the game for me. There wasn’t one trick. I wish there was, but there isn’t.

Instead, there were a few key systems and habits that really moved the needle and enabled me to transform my creative output from zero to prolific.

As a result?

  • I uncovered the myths behind creativity and inspiration that were holding me back. I thought that you had to be inspired to make music (truth: you don’t).
  • I focused on building my creative muscles rather than trying to find a “hack.” I did this deliberately, systematically, and reframed my perspective to enjoy the process of getting better (rather than trying to produce a hit all the time).
  • I developed a ritual and routine that enabled me to be creative at will (even when I didn’t really feel like making music).

That’s my story. But what about yours?

How to Become a High-Output Producer (and Finally Escape the Creative Death Trap)

If you’ve read this far, I’m guessing that you struggle with the same problems I did.

You find it hard to start new projects and build momentum…

When you do start projects and make progress, finishing them seems like an impossible task…

And on those rare occasions when you do finish a new track, you feel like it’s just lacking. It’s basic, not very interesting, and not unique.

You’ve probably tried fixing this with some band-aid solutions, similar to what I did. You’ve tried new plugins, software, took a course or two, watched tutorials… but you’ve ended up in the same place.

The truth is, you can get out of the creative rut you’re in. And you can transform yourself from procrastinator to high-output producer.

But it requires a plan, strong intention, and systems that become habits.

The Producer’s Guide to Workflow & Creativity reveals the exact framework you can use to increase your creative output, destroy writer’s block, and reignite the passion for music production that’s been lying dormant for too long.

  • Feel like their passion for music production is waning, and want to get it back.

What You'll Learn Inside the Book

  • How to build a robust creative workflow that enables you to start and finish tracks at will without relying on inspiration.
  • How to create a “pre-production” ritual that forces you into the zone so you can skip the 30+ minutes of messing around and get right into producing.

And much more.
