Making music isn’t easy — if it was, everyone would do it. Even the greats struggle from time to time with their writing process as demonstrated in the video here.

deadmau5 is certainly a master of his craft and a godlike producer in the eyes of many, but he just recently showed us all how normal he actually is via live stream. As displayed below, deadmau5 gets frustrated while writing music just like everyone else.

During his online MasterClass, deadmau5 seems cool, calm, and collected, but it’s just as reassuring to see him pushing through these very real struggles all artists face.

Producers — you know the feelings he’s going through here. It’s all for the new album he hopes to complete early 2018 and we can’t wait to hear it.

You got this, deadmau5!
