Re: you may be wasting your time

In his case, it's a gimmick. His tracks wouldn't get a second look if he didn't dress like a woman and send imposters to do his Boiler Room sets. I hate the word 'gimmick'. Are you saying that the entire reason he's put so much thought into his aesthetic and music is to get plays/attention? The aes...

Re: you may be wasting your time

Here's a quote from SOPHIE - who has his image down perfectly, and that, along with some very original sound design/production, has gained him a lot of traction. "Aesthetic aims should be secondary to conceptual aims, otherwise you end up with music that is driven by stylistic references rather than...

Re: What do you look for in dubstep?

Something that comes at me completely unexpected and rocks some kind of groove. This can be anything from some crazy synth noise to a cool melodic line that might go in between some modes/keys to a sudden change in 'feel' like swing or even a time signature change. I also like it when artists really...

Is there a Helvetica with the letters ...

Re: What record/etc. did you just buy?

Just got the new Jack White album. I'm a guitarist and Jack White's solos are fucking insane on this thing. I would say about 60% of the record is shit and the rest of it is hoppin. Jack White is my favorite artist and these last two solo albums are riddled with hills and deep, deep, deep valleys of...

Pitchfork did a "Rising" feature on the producer SOPHIE [ https://soundcloud.com/msmsmsm ] and here's a quote that I thought was pretty eye-opening: "Aesthetic aims should be secondary to conceptual aims, otherwise you end up with music that is driven by stylistic references rather than its conceptu...

Re: Different Aliases

i think that the way you 'brand' yourself or the aesthetic you create is pretty important. if you look at jon gooch, he has different aliases for different genres and each alias has its own feel, character and brand. now, he is a very talented and legendary producer, but i believe that the smartest ...
