Nes Croft interview

What inspires you to keep making things?

"We only get one life; one shot to do something great and I just want to live my life to the fullest. Creating to me is one of the best ways to live a satisfying life. I am always in competition with myself and others to create something better and I enjoy the challenge. Also I am weird. I want to make music for all the weirdos out there like me cause I know we have a gift to give the world."

What one piece of advice would you give to other makers?

"Never quit learning. As soon as you think you are an expert it's game over. Always keep a beginners mind."

"As soon as you think you are an expert it's game over. Always keep a beginners mind." — Nes Croft
