Entering the music industry can be easy, but it can also be extremely difficult to make your mark and remain relevant. The widespread use of social media has resulted in many overnight music stars struggling to keep up with the industry’s pace. It requires more than talent, with passion being a major complementary factor that can lead to success.
Varun Sharma, popularly known as SpaceNTime, is a renowned music producer gradually cementing his position in the industry. SpaceNTime has been in the industry for years, making a name for himself with his unique and strong brand as a producer. His innate talent and extraordinary music production skills rate him one of LA’s top producers, and it’s just a matter of time before he dominates the industry.
Though he has worked with numerous artists, SpaceNTime is widely known for being Pacman Da Gunman’s in-house producer, crafting his sounds since 2015. The two have linked on numerous projects, including “Money Power,” a classical hip-hop track that placed #25 on the Billboard chart. SpaceNTime has also had two of his other projects placed on the iTunes Top 40 Hip-Hop Chart, ranking at #14 and #4. These are only part of his notable career highlights, and he has since been awarded two plaques for these milestones. An ambitious artist, SpaceNTime considers it a stepping stone to more incredible successes in the coming years.
Establishing a name and making his mark in the industry has not been a smooth ride. SpaceNTime has faced numerous challenges, some of which would have quickly destroyed or ended his music production career at a young age. His most significant challenge was sticking to his brand, especially in the early days where he was under so much pressure to sell out with the hope of accelerating his career. Fortunately, SpaceNTime was clever enough not to fall into temptation, and he stuck to his craft and nurtured it to the level it is today.
SpaceNTime now advises other up-and-coming artists not to allow themselves to be duped into selling their brands. The money might be tempting, but it’s never worth your dream. Instead, his advice is to stay dedicated to your passion and do it like it was the only thing you are meant to do regardless of what other people say. He believes that ignoring the naysayers is the only way to overcome challenges and keep your head focused on the bigger goal. Put your heart into everything you do and stay consistent, and it will be just a matter of time before you actualize your dreams.
SpaceNTime has big dreams for the future, including working and producing for other top-level artists in the industry. He also wants to scale his music production brand by making larger investments to attract more clients. He views it as an ideal strategy to get his music to more people and get publishers to offer more incentives to collect more royalties. This will not only increase his revenue but also introduce his music and brand to more people across the world.
