You hear all the time about people taking that ‘make or break‘ risk, but you don’t usually hear their story until they’ve achieved one of the two. This story is about a man who was brave enough to take the plunge and dive into the uncertain territory of being an independent artist.

BAXT is a London-based producer and remixer. He started playing the piano at a very early age and was always in bands growing up on the Isle of Wight. BAXT then ended up studying classical music at university and moved to London. Living in London was a challenge initially as costs were high, so a ‘real job’ came calling for a while in the tech industry.

Always wondering ‘what if?’ What if he hit the big time? What if his incredible music fell into the hands of the right people? Well one day the wondering became too much and he had to find out the answer for himself. He quit his prosperous career in the tech industry and embarked on his journey into music. Now he’s finally working full-time in music and it’s a dream come true.

Within 2 months of making this decision, BAXT had secured a remix for one of Germany’s biggest labels, Motor Records and their artist Albert. And guess who helped make this happen? Music Gateway of course!

So if you’re thinking ‘what if’ and are teatering on the edge of a big decision, let us help you make your dreams become a reality. Browse our opportunities now and follow in BAXT’s footsteps.

“I’m still early on in my career in music and there’s so much more to learn, so I’m asking everyone for advice, working with as many artists as possible and teaming up with great services like Music Gateway to ensure I get paid to do what I love.” BAXT
