I hate to downplay any listeners like this, but it seems to be the case. The producers that try to achieve a more professional sound do get a bit of attention, but then fall below the top listings considerably quickly. The more crude tracks then find their way into the top listings, where they're praised beyond belief.
I really don't understand why this is happening. Yes, there's a certain appeal or vibe to freelance producers, but not when they spend half an hour on FL Studio with the first instruments that they find and sneak their way onto the Top 5. What happened to the individual that slaved away for weeks, trying to bring something special to the Portal?
I'm not looking down upon musicians that are trying to become better, either. I understand that a lot of artists in the Portal are trying to better themselves. But the outpouring praise, in my opinion, does more harm than good. They need to be told how to do better alongside their strong points, not to rest on their laurels.
These thoughts are hammering at my mind, and they're making me wonder if I should continue uploading here or not. Because I'm not referring to myself. I've been chatting with and following fantastic producers that deserve better than what is occurring here.
