Statement

HI Guys ! i have been really pissed off the last couple of days !!!!!
i fucking hate people putting our music for download on there bloggs and so on !
we work our asses off in the studio to make atrack , we put money into
remixes , artwork , marketing , webbased promotion , promotional
downloading systems and so on , to get everything right ! and then what
happends ??? well some kid gets ahold of thetrack , donīt ask me how ,
and gives it away for free ?!?!?!?!?
honestly what the fuck is wrong with people ?
one thing they donīt understand is that if we cant sell our music and
break even we wont put out more music , and producers will stop
producing music cause they canīt live a life where everything is free
!! young producers stop making music cause they canīt pay there bills ,
eat food or things like that !
why the fuck do people want to ruin another persons carrer ???
why canīt people just go to itunes , beatport m juno , djdownload or
any other mp3 store and just buy a track ? itīs one dollar !!!!! if it
continues like this i wont make any more tracks and i wont release
music on SIZE , iīll stop it unless people start respecting other
peoples businesses ..... i feel bad for all those young new label
owners that are struggling everyday to pay there bills , and all those
young producers who wont get payed for remixes cause labels dont make
money !
dont you get it . when you share music you will get one less producer each day !
if you continue like this people will stop doing records and stop
releasing on there labels ! cause itīs to expensive to run a label for
free !!!

fucking assholes !

Sounds like double standards to me, as when he was starting out he would post his remixes/tunes on forums & such like.
But now he is famous it's not acceptable!

So what's everyones take on this?

He's not entirely off the track here. I can understand what frustrates him but he has to understand that House Music itself got rejuvenated by file sharing. It's also true that 95% of the stuff found at sites like Beatport, Juno, etc. is absolute shit ...

The thing that bothers me the most is the fact that those so-called producers were the first one using samples from other people's work and putting remixes all over the forums a couple of years ago ... they have to understand that a house music tune has VERY short lifespan ... most of the time I don't completely listen to the song before putting it away or even simply getting rid of it. When I do keep them, they just become part of my ever-growing collection of useless house music. That's why I'll need to buy a 1 terabyte drive to store them all.

I'm not a professional Dj or producer like Mr Angello  but I would guess that he doesn't make most of his money selling mp3s on the Net. He must charge an hefty fee for a night at a club (given his status) and also people must pay to see him when he does his shows. My point is that part of why he has become so poular and well known is due to the fact that his material is all over the blogs and forums ...

I still think he has the right to be frustrated but I just think that greed is behind this rant ...

one point angello makes that hasnt been addressed is the issue of new, young producers and labels never getting off their feet because they cant make any money. but i think that now in the digital age, this is a problem for a variety of reasons, not just people sharing music for free.

like sinister said, the market and community is so flooded with generic, unmemorable music, that a new artist would have to have some really good music to have any success without already being well-established (like steve angello is). and frankly, if i were a fledging musician, i would be absolutely thrilled to see a new song of mine making the rounds on blogs and mp3 sharing sources. i think for someone trying to make a name for themselves, that sort of exposure is much more beneficial than a few bucks from beatport or something.

and also like sinister said, im pretty sure most active electronic music artists make most of their money from performances and gigs. and this decommodification of recorded music from free downloading will force artists to rely more heavily on live performances to make a living, which in turn (im hoping) will increase the amount of effort and investment in live performances. i love dancing, and i love that amazing feeling you can get from the live experience (whether in a club, rock stadium, or concert hall). and you definitely cant download that.

a perfect example of a new, successful house artist is deadma5. he started posting music on an online community of artists (sectionz.com), and he had such good music that he was put on the sectionz record label, which gained him exposure to major labels. he generated a lot of buzz, and that, along with his awesome live shows, has made him a huge success. i love deadmau5, and ive followed his music for a long time, but ive never once paid for it. however, i would without hesitation go to any live show should he ever perform near me.

Deadmau5 is the perfect example of what I was saying ... nowadays, a new producer has to create a buzz around him to get known, one of the best way to do so is "making the round" through blogs and forums ....

Just my 2 cents ...

If I remix a track without permission to gain exposure, then book a paying gig because of that particular remix...do I owe the original artist royalty's?

I did just make money off someone else's work. Funny how we create our own versions of right and wrong.

Don't bite the hand that feeds you, even if it does want some of your meal.
