I genuinely feel that you can't make music this way anymore. The Internet exposes people to stuff which affects what they do. People see other amateur work and feel that they have to compete with it - same goes for the commercial stuff. They're influenced by the abundance of music available to them on P2P.
The old tunes, BoC Maxima, Twoism... they sound like they were made for the producers alone, and I love that. Most home-grown music doesn't feel this way.
I hate the Internet.
The more things change, the more things stay the same.
