This article is not an attack on this kid, more an attack on people advocating this bollox. So now we have some kid who is touring and getting all this publicity (hell im even writing a post that is indirectly related to him) whilst real artist struggle and sit infront of their computers for hours and hours and still do not get recognition. Granted some people may simply be making bad music, but at least it is their own. hell id rather be unknown for something I actually created than loved for something that I did not do. I mean at least will.i.am fuking writes his own shite vocals over a stolen piece of music but getting other people to write music for you and call it your own??????? is this what house music has become? where is the love in that? where is the passion? who gives a shit if you can headline festivals or buy million dollar mansions ......at least create a legacy by leaving behind great music that you actually created and your real fans can enjoy for years to come. What boils my piss even more is that these fuckheads are getting all these booking and all their 'fans' are turning up to see them play other peoples records? fair enough if their dj skills were actually worth paying for, like james zabiela for example.....id pay to go see him all day long because he is amazing to watch live, but paying to see some bloke to stand up there waving his arms about like a twat and either play a pre recorded set or a synced set, or even look into a laptop screen all night, and then play the songs he didn't even fucking make? Are you people insane? educate yourself on this stuff and seek out the real artists who deserve your support. Alright if u are one of these 'edm' fanboys who loves a euro dance lead and nexus preset then fair enough but at least support the real artists. At least guys like deadmau5 who pretty much play 'live' through ableton actually sit in the studio and make great music, even if it is not your style of music.....they still spend countless hours creating it so that in itself deserves respect and support. Or you could be just another idiot who pays their hard earned money to go watch people like Paris Hilton press play on a cdj and twiddle a flanger around whilst making loads of heart hand shapes, it is your choice at the end of the day.
Ghost producing is here to stay unfortunately, but in my eyes it should be exposed more publically to weed out the fake arse artists. At least that way people who actually give a fuck about the scene could pro actively support the real artists and not have some bullshit about ten year olds or 'top 100 djs' making records shoved in our faces. Throw me a fuckin bone!!
