talk to a producer to find they just work hard and their weird soundscape they found got popular?
i've always found it fascinating that people idolize edm people
or have you ever met (or not met cause they are a douche) a diva who is using their 15 minutes of fame to be a dick (cough le castle vania)
i honestly wanna run into feed me/spor again because i saw him as a teen just enjoying life and amazed people loved his music back when

Bob Dylan, for one. walking in NYC. What did I do/say? Nothing. I like to think he appreciated that, because i caught his eye for a second, but just kinda let it go and kept walking. Felt like that be the way he'd want it.
Also met Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) after a gig, and it's true he struck me as a young man just the same as all of us. Just happened to be doing the music thing, doing really well and loving it. I said hi, he said hi, nice to meet you, gave me a hug and went on chilling at the party.

i got starstruck at this thing i went to the other day because one of the people playing who i had never heard of and didn't even like her music that much had the same name as me, i went up to her and was all like "OMG! YOU HAVE MY NAME!"

And these people often appreciated being treated just like anyone else, I have the same respect for clients who produce excellent music and for those
who are starting out, it should not be any other way.
..so I never take anything that seriously, and rather focus on being pleasantly surprised when I meet people who turn out to be really grounded.
I've met many of my classical music idols - and just about every one of them was a wonderful experience: Yo-Yo Ma, Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez, Zubin Mehta, Gil Shaham, Peter Serkin, Menahem Pressler, etc etc.
In non-classical music: I met Billy Gould (bassist of Faith No More) in the crowd after a Mr. Bungle show and he was absolutely great. He stayed and talked to me for almost 30 mins.
I've met a few assholes - but I just didn't really care tbh. The only time I have really been annoyed by snotty behavior is when it was someone who used to be a friend before they got really big, then they start acting too big & self-important... That's happened a couple of times & people like that can go to hell.
Or most people IMO...deadly habit wrote:i've always found it fascinating that people idolize edm people
I wouldn't say idols, but people I respect yeah.
I've met or hung out with loads of electronic producers or famous DJs over the years, even kept in touch on AIM. None of them were really dickheads.
A few that stand out:
Tech itch talked production with me for a long time hanging around after his set, but Dylan went to sleep early - didn't even finish his set haha. Another occasion SPL came and spun a bonus set at a bbq the next day haha. That was pretty cool. Limewax chatted for hours after one of his sets - funny guy, really odd convos about stuff like the Valve system & buttplugs. One of the funniest and most humble was when Skream kept giving apologies for trainwrecking a couple of times in a 4 hour set. I could tell he was jetlagged, and the Stella wasn't helping. He looked like he was about to fall over any second.
But yeah, all normal people with probably more in common with you than you'd think.
elliot lipp is totally chill, saw his first live band set in NYC as well, sounds much better than his album tbh.
The worst I've seen was mimosa, he's on pretty lights' label. His albums are totally dope, but he is an absolute jackass in a live scenario. drunk and on the blowski for sure. in nashville he asked the soundguy to turn the system up so loud that the rig fell and smashed the next act's laptops! After that elliot lipp set I referenced, Ana Sia was djing and mimosa is apparently her bf or something. So he was running sound, which turned out to be an absolute nightmare. He cranked it and I had to leave to avoid tinnitus. You'd imagine someone with a bunch of dmt references in their music would be chill, but not so...
Rule of thumb: If it sounds good it is good.
