OKAY, guys... so I didn't get selected for the @EDMDriveIn opening set opportunity. I was a little bummed when I didn't see my name on the list. But, I know that you only lose when you DO NOT submit. That's the whole thing with competitions... you have no idea what or if the judges are even looking for anything. Is it large amount of followers? Specific music genre? A certain look? Who knows! It's usually not off of skill, haha! I say that because I knew some other well known DJs in San Antonio who also got passed up. Sometimes that's just how it is.
So what next... Do I mope and feel depressed about the missed opportunity? Absolutely not! I took the time after the competition to complete my next EP "Skinny Dip" which will release in August. I'm also realigning my marketing plan to better fit different revenue streams. This recent 'No' has provided me more drive to continue honing in my craft as an artist and creator.
I'm very excited about the future and I have faith that I will succeed in this industry. Good things are coming because the hard work is happening :)
