IS THERE SUCH A THING AS OVER-PRODUCING IN THE RETRO SCENE?
OK, OK, OK BASICALLY
OK, OK, OK
BASICALLY……..WE HAVE NOTICED THAT MANY OF THE LOYAL RETRO FANS OF THIS UNDERGROUND 80S REVIVAL SCENE FEEL THAT SOME REVIVAL ARTISTS MAKE TOO MANY SONGS AND ALBUMS……. AND RELEASE THEM TO CLOSE TOGETHER!
THIS COULD BE DAMAGING TO THE SCENE IF QUALITY CONTROL IS NOT ENFORCED!!! OVERPRODUCTION WILL HURT THIS SCENE PEEPS!
IGNORE THE SILLY GIRL ON THE LEFT FOLKS……..FOCUS …….ALTHOUGH THE HIGHLIGHTED GUY ON THE LOWER RIGHT IS BEING DISRESPECTFUL TO THE ARTIST, WHICH NRW DOES NOT STAND FOR, REALIZE THAT WHAT THIS DUDE IS SAYING IS A SEMI VALID POINT. WE LOVE SELLOREKT AND THIS IS NO STAB AT HIS MUSIC OR WORK ETHIC. HE IS A MASTER OF HIS CRAFT! BUT IS IT NECESSARY TO RELEASE AN ALBUM SO OFTEN???……..EVERY MONTH?? THIS GOES FOR ANY ARTIST IN THIS FIELD.
(WE ARE NOT PICKING ON SELLOREKT, JUST AN EXAMPLE)
IT SURELY IS QUALITY OVER QUANTITY…..RIGHT?
WHAT CAN AN ARTISTS GAIN FROM RELEASING ALBUMS IN SHORT TIME SPANS?! A QUICK BUCK…OR A CHANCE TO GROW A REAL LOYAL FANBASE?
FOR THIS SCENE TO LAST AND PROSPER, ALBUMS NEED TO BE SEEN AS GOLDEN TICKETS!!! GEMS IF YOU LIKE. THE MORE OF A WAIT A FAN CAN GET UNTIL THE NEXT ALBUM …….. THE GREATER THE SALES WILL BE FOR THE NEXT ALBUM.
AN ALBUM A YEAR IS JUST FINE MY PEOPLE!!!! LOL
AN ALBUM EVERY MONTH/ 2 MONTHS/ 3 MONTHS IS STRAIGHT OVER KILL!!!! THERE IS NO NEED FOR THIS.
(NOT COUNTING EP’S, MIXTAPES, COMPILATIONS…ETC)
EVEN ARCADE HIGH AGREES MANY ARTISTS ARE DOING THIS
WE KNOW THAT ONCE A PRODUCER IS IN THE ZONE, HE/ SHE WANTS TO PUT OUT HIS WORK AND SHARE THEM. BUT THIS SCENE ISN’T A PRODUCER FOR THE PRODUCER SCENE. KEEP THAT BEHIND THE SCENES.
SHARING SONGS WITH FANS WORLDWIDE AND GETTING RECOGNITION IS THE MAIN GOAL HERE……RIGHT?!
REAL LISTENING FANS WHO WANT TO HEAR QUALITY TRACKS MATTER SOOOOO MUCH! THEY GET YOUR SOUND ABOUT VIA WORD OF MOUTH! HOW CAN YOU NEGLECT THEM?!
FOCUS ON QUALITY…..
AND DJ’S WHO WANT TO SPIN TRACKS TO INCREASE RETRO BUZZ SHOULD NEVER BE IGNORED.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS PEOPLE?

The Electroklash scene a few years back suffered from a similar overkill, but so far there's only Kavensky as the breakout artist from outrun/dreamwave. It will bubble under for a while and surely quality will rise to the top.

I'd have to agree with the idea that some producers are making too much music at once for it to be good quality. I realize this, which is one reason why there was a six month gap between my albums "Prison of the Mind" and "Change of Clothes".

i only care if the music is good. everyone is different: maybe some people are just prolific when it comes to making music, or maybe they just have A LOT of ideas. i say strike when the iron is hot. to be honest, i think it would be worse to purposely wait. it's not really a guarantee that waiting x period of time will mean the album will sound better.
i say the thing to do here is just do what's right for you. if you feel like waiting- then wait. but if you feel the need to put out another album- go ahead.
