So I wanted to point out to you guys that Will.I.Am made a statement about EDM calling it “Get drunk and look at the DJ” Music.
Well I’m here to set this one straight.
First off, I know as a fact, that Will.I.Am only said this because he is Upset over the recent Mat Zo incident where he was accused, and found guilty of Sampling a track without permission.
It’s called paper work my friend. And its kind of required in this industry.
Calling EDM “Get Drunk and look at the DJ” Music, is absurd.
If Alcohol was the predominant substance of choice in the Electronic Music scene, then there would NOT be so many bright ass lights all over the place. If I was loaded, that shit would give me a headache even more than it does sober.
It would have been a little more accurate to call it “Fry your serotonin out on Molly and get lost in a brainless haze” Music.
But even then it is unacceptable to even imply that the Music is part of the problem.
Now just to be clear, you, the reader, the raver, are not prone to a little bit of friendly fire.
I love Electronic Music,
It saved me, when I sat crying on my own, strung out on every drug you can imagine. Electronic music made me feel like I wasn’t as big of a piece of shit as I really am. Without getting too personal. I got in deep. I have had many close encounters with losing my life, before the age of 20. When I was 17, I began up producing music, and soon I would choose to take it as a career path. So blah blah blah, long story short, I can tell you first hand the level of the difficulty involved in creating Electronic Dance Music.
Will.I.Am had an angry outburst after he was made a fool by the electronic scene and supporting Facebook pages & Forums.
But you’re both in the wrong.
Maybe his point he would have liked to portray to all of you is that the rave scene is no longer peace, love, unity, and respect.
And if you want my opinion, a majority of the male fan base are just pussy hungry, fist pumping, juice head bro’s who’s skills in life venture no further than beer pong and masturbating.
The Electronic (Rave) Scene is suffering.
You’re killing it, all of you. Not just the “Bro’s”
And you’re killing yourselves in the process.
Over and Over I see EDM FB Pages as well as Artists subliminally, and sometimes blatantly promote the use of drugs to a congregation of Kids who are already neck deep in REAL LIFE problems. And none of you are smart or mature enough to know how to handle life’s problems.
You have no role models besides fake artists like Borgore and David Guetta. (Soon I will write a rant informing you all of something called a “Ghost Producer” but for now—) You’re all giving whack sellouts like Will.I.Am REASONS to talk shit.
I’m going to wrap this up for the clucks who’s attention may or may not have passed the first paragraph.
I’m not some scared Mother.
I’m not some whack Westboro Baptist freak.
I’m not some Metal head who wants to see EDM burn.
I’m a 21 year old Progressive House producer.
I am one of you.
And I once heard someone say to me at a rave,
"if you don’t like it, change it. or get out."
So fuck you random high kid. I’m going to shed light on the problems this scene is so loosely handling.
Let’s turn this shit around.
Let’s recreate OUR Music Scene,
Around the Music.
Thanks guys. I think we can do this,
One ‘reblog’ at a time.
