Dubstep musician with 'real' day jobs

Post by New Sense » Thu Aug 01, 2013 9:57 am

I wonder what day jobs some dubstep artists have whose music isn't enough to pay the bills.

Any ideas?.

Pretty sure around the time Hyph Mngo came out, Joy Orbison worked in a post office or something. Guessing he doesn't have to work there now.

Mala was a youth worker or something, weren't he?

I remember back in the day one of the top PsyTrance acts - WizzyNoise, 2 two guys owned and ran a hardware store.

Loefah is a hairdresser obviously.

Coki had an office job till March this year.

Making money off music is almost never just from producing (Burial?)

Rarely just from DJing.

Most do other things part time (promoting, mastering, sound design etc)

Jack Sparrow was doing production tutoring last year at Eiger Music Studios, & was doing work on films for Lionsgate (it looks like from a video he posted) and is heavily involved in Outlook i believe.

Number Nin6 is a doctor. Although I guess he was in med school for most of his time touring.

Kode9 would have been my main lecturer in year 2 if I hadn't dropped out at the end of my first year... I didn't find this out until afterwards though :u:
