First of all thanks for these vids. I have multiple question and I hope one of you can answer them. 1. When do you speak about release and are there rules, for example must a label release it? 2. When do you speak about remix and what are the rules? 3. Dumb question, What is the point of giving your tracks to a label when you can put it online? 4. What music theory book/website would you recommend? 5. Where do they get their sample packs? I hope on of you can anwer this.

the title of the video is "How to start a Track" and its Jay Hardway teaching the class. He clearly is struggling giving this class. I feel like his struggle literally IS the class. To teach you all that just because this dude has mad experience and releases out there, starting a track isnt easy even for guys like him. I get asked all the time how i come up with melodies and drops and chords and design this crazy lead sounds and the only answer i give is "sleepless nights and beer". Hes writing a track cuz he has to, not because he wants to. Producers write from within themselves. whether its based of a life experience, an emotion their feeling, a story thats in their head. And that in my opinion is what it takes to "start" a song

@Drastik Yes I figured it out after I saw the video, but thanks anyway :) I tried to get the same sound, and it's just a sax loop reversed with a lot of effects, like distorsion, tons of reverb, delay etc. 👍

Jay Hardway has always been a favourite of mine. He's a good example of making accessible but unique music. Big inspiration too. Hopefully I'll meet him one day.

Lovely to hear he's such a big inspiration to you! Hope you can indeed meet him one day (he's one of the nicest people in the scene!)
