Session 2 – Realize that was too much πŸ˜³β‰οΈ Then patiently sculpt it back towards the mixes you loved in the first place and find a good balance between the two. Then send it for your review! πŸŽΆπŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸŽΆ

Session 3 – Final tweaks, create and QC the masters. πŸ’―

Then await Grammy nominations and Platinum awards πŸ†πŸ’Ώ You never know, maybe it’ll even get placed on a viral kitten video! 🐈😻
