My entire life revolves around making music. Every day I wake up, brush my teeth, go on a run, and basically make songs until the sun goes down. If I had to estimate, I probably make close to 30 songs/mini ideas per month - and that’s being very conservative.
Out of the 300+ song ideas that I make per year, I realistically only get 12-15 at bats to show DSPs what I’m working on. Often times, that curation has to do with what artists are on what song, who else is releasing in the same week, and a bunch of other politics that don’t make a ton of sense.
Releasing music shouldn’t be complicated.
Kevin George sent me this acapella last week as my flight from Miami back home to LA was taking off. I produced the entire thing from start to finish on the flight. I tweaked it that night, bounced it and played it at the Glass House release party the next day.
I’m putting this song out to challenge the notion that every song has to have the perfect roll out and campaign. If you love a record, put it out. It doesn’t matter if it took you 3 hours or 3 years 💛

Daniel AllanI’ve been making music since I was 14. When I turned 22, I dropped everything and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a life in music. Music has been my passion since my Dad first gave me a Beatles CD and my Mom forced me into classical music, so living in LA and making music every day has been a dream come true.
I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. When I was in middle school I noticed rappers needed ways to record and that I could be that guy. Having no experience, I set up shop in my bedroom closet, where I proceeded to record everyone that had any semblance of a demo. By my sophomore year in high school, I eagerly suggested to be their producer too.
After my sophomore year I ended up at Lollapalooza - by total accident. I managed to spend all of my savings on a last minute ticket. I was instantly hooked and over the course of the next four years would go to as many shows as I could and proceeded to produce a heinous amount of EDM. I became addicted to the process and came to appreciate artistry.
I’ve always had the craziest appreciation for artists that seamlessly blend their audiovisual worlds. My biggest inspirations are Odesza, Flume, and Kanye West because their live shows play into the experience just as much as the music. I’ve always aspired to do the same for people who come across my music.
