Want to Be the Next Big Rock Producer? Buckle Up

Carlos de la Garza can “count on one hand” the number of alternative rock records being green-lit by major labels right now.

De la Garza, a drummer-turned-producer who also mixes and engineers and has worked with everyone from Bad Religion to Best Coast, remembers a more lucrative time: 10 to 15 years ago, he says, record labels had much bigger budgets for rock and alternative acts. Those budgets have since shifted toward other genres — resulting in fewer album releases and fewer opportunities for rock-focused producers every year. “Everyone’s fighting for those same few records, so when you do get a record like that, the pressure is just so intense,” de la Garza tells Rolling Stone.Taking chances becomes much more of a high-risk game, and that can just lead to a spiraling effect on the ability to create something
