The digital age has allowed us to explore new heights in how we create music. But have we become so jaded and bombarded with new music that is becomes too much? Check out today’s article where we explore the results of a D.I.Y music culture.

Do you believe that we should change how we record? Let us know by reading Simon Davies’ article on MusicThinkTank.com and let us know in the comments what you think.
