Hey man!
I remember reading you released albums with Twisted Records and then switched to releasing music on your own.
I've been working on an album of uptempo and downtempo Psychedelicy wobby wob wob sqweltchy weltchy stuff and wasn't sure how best to go about this.
Finding a record label who'd be interested to release it?
Releasing under "My own Lable" (If so what does that even mean?)
. . . Any ideas for a young budding wobist?

Twisted Records certainly gave me a platform early on, so that when it came to releasing my own records I already had something of a profile and I wasn't starting from scratch.

If I were you I would concentrate on making your music as good and as original as it can be, and take every gig you get offered. Make yourself visible on social media but don't just spam your SoundCloud to people's inboxes and Facebook pages. That has the opposite effect to the one you want.

I believe that in the age of the internet good stuff will naturally rise to the top ["Hey, have you heard this??!?"] and all the derivative, half-arsed nonsense will sink without trace, so work on sounding distinctive above everything else. Don't fall into the trap of making generic music you think is fashionable in the hope that sounding like everyone else will make your journey easier. It will in the short term but when that fashion leaves town it'll take you with it.

Try to stand out as much as possible.

Good luck.
