I think that's the best thing you can do. Find a record you feel translates well and try to get close to it. That's the way you learn.
Just when you think you find a record that's amazing sounding though.....someone comes out with another that blows your mind. A recommendation here would be dated in about 6 months at the rate producers are learning though so all i can say is ask around or you'll know when that tune comes on in the club and everything else sounds like crap compared to it. lol
"you bust your ass to make all the money you can...thinking it solves shit...and then you realize..when and if you get there at all...you got more problems and you missed out on the one thing you can't buy or get back...your life! Spend time with friends and family...You can be broke in other ways too!...."
