This is fantastic!
You say I was a type of mentor to you, but I can definitely say that you were as much, if not more of a mentor to me! I was stuck in terms of instruments and production, and through our collaborations, I learned so much more about how to structure music with real AND electronic instruments, how to combine them, and also how to approach the mixing bit. That is true for percussion as well. You inspired me to invest into good hardware and software too, as you made me realise if I want to make something out of my music, I have to sacrifice something. Keep on being great <3
