Ben Burnes is a producer, live streamer, and game programmer. He releases unique sample packs and is very active in the music production community. Ben participates in a 2 Hour Track Challenge every week. He is currently readying his new album Hey for release.
It was great to speak with Ben again; he was the very first guest on this podcast! Ben shared how he keeps himself disciplined with his 2 Hour Track Challenge and monthly sample packs. He reveals how his discipline has made him a better producer yet he still experiences challenges and setbacks. I find his approach inspiring and am happy to learn from his ways!
