Hey up Mechanismj.
True that, Bandcamp is pretty helpful in many ways, you can get inspiration while you check out other producers and make contacts and collabs far easier than ever before from these online collective platforms, no contractual obligations to produce by time scales, can all be taken in your own stride I guess, haha when I started doing mixes (95) it was all about sending cassettes to club promoters, carefully learning que points, key changes (by ear not knowing a middle c from and a lol) and creating a journey from an intro into a starting point and knowing middle textures, working to an ending and not before scouring record shops for vinyl in different areas of the country (which I miss terribly), now it's a click onto Juno or Beatport. MySpace and YT was still gaining popularity by around 2000?, Ive only just got into music production (a bit late perhaps as a mid 40s) and I know my "level" so to speak. You seem to be very prolific in making music as well Ive noticed, you seem committed which is something I struggle with, but hope to become, at the mo always out of the zone or away from my computer, so cannot see me warrant a Bandcamp account just yet...yet...ever hopeful
It is fun when you make something and it still sounds ok after a while though. Your very modest also, I think you capture/samples are clean sounding as well, sounds are well eq'd
