Thread: mnml --- tech

    Stott wins if rarity is the metric of greatest import.

    But passing this up seems unthinkable

    Yea, I just saw your post on the other thread. Plaslaiko is way more appealing to me than PvH.

    Has Stott even played the west coast before? I guess it depends on whether you actually want to see him, or think he'll be back within the next few years?

    Doesn't get more interesting, to my mind, than PVH. But different strokes and all that . Could always sneak away for an hr of Stott if Future Perfect is nice about releasing set times in advance.

    I keep forgetting how incredibly stacked that night is in SF, too. Good problem to have.

    PvH vs. Andy Stott--two different styles of good bangin techno. Personally, I'd see Stott just because he's a bit rarer and I love the Modern Love library. Either way, you can't be mad at yourself at the end of the night.

    Full disclosure: I did see PvH this year already but not on a proper system.

    Yikes. A painful read but i found it oddly entertaining. These people haven't a clue.

    One of the clowns interviewed in that piece took to twitter to voice his displeasure at the negative reaction of dance music "snobs" ... and Sherburne kindly put him in his place

    I'm kind of bored of people trying to summarize edm scenes. The American conversation is especially dull. What people forget to delve into in details is the business end of things. You can go on for ages about the music but it doesnt matter.

    That article was aggravating. I was particularly flabbergasted by the part where they try to legitimize their level of knowledge and experience with the club-dwelling side of the electronic music scene, by explaining how they have seen Skrillex and Tiesto in small clubs, not just stadiums.

    The "snob" label concerns me, because I feel like they're throwing out the term snob to refer to a preference for a more 'elite' experience (rather than a perception of having 'better' taste in the actual music). Meaning, it seems like they think the EDM "snobbery" is about being able to make a claim most people cannot -- being able to claim you've been into a DJ/producer longer than others, seeing them at a smaller/private venue, having met/hanging out with said DJ. Just my take as it seems like people invariably respond to "snobs" with big talk about how they are friends with so-and-so or saw such-and-such cheesedick DJ at a private party before he was big. They don't seem to get that we're not impressed that they have seen Skrillex, whether at a 200 person venue or in 20,000 festival crowd, 3 years ago, or last month. It's like they think 'snobs' are only interested in music that is not yet popular, recognized... my take is that most of us who are into electronic music that would cause us to be labeled as "snobs" would be pretty happy to hear that music on the radio or be able to see those DJs booked at festival gigs... *shrug*

    God. So many juicy awful quotes.

    Dave Rene: Well, in Skrillex's case he did something sonically that's never been done, so that to me makes it very attractive to the mainstream from a sound design perspective. There are songs in there. A lot of dance music guys aren't making songs, but now that more and more and more musicians are actually getting into this game, songs are coming out of this which is why it's becoming attractive
    I have sat through—and so has Dave I'm sure—many major label meetings where Skrillex is referred to as "the next Kurt Cobain," because of how people relate to him.
    Dave Rene: Yeah, there started to really be some personality behind this music, some attitude and not a gay one.
    Kathryn Frazier: And hopefully you'll be able to buy a big beach house somewhere in the middle.

    Matt Rodriguez: That would be awesome.
    Whoever played after Zedd, the guy got up on the table and raised his hands and to myself I'm like, "Hmm, Zedd didn't do that, this guy's having a better show," and to me that's just fucked and I hated that feeling. I don't know, it's definitely changing what a live show is, for better or worse. Personally I'd rather watch a jazz trio, but I don't know where I really land on that one.

    The fact that he hasn't made it stateside in ages concerns me. I smell visa problems; it certainly can't be for lack of interest on the part of US promoters.
    For real, I need to see this dude soon.

    I was told Marcel Dettmann awhile ago. Take this with a grain of salt though, I can't recall source.

    Good lookin, Aurgasm. Tin Man would be prime, but traveling around Thanksgiving is hell. It would be nice to do Denver for Traversable, since I had to miss him here in LA.

    Yea, I think those others are all coming through Sf (not 100% certain though). Pan-Pot was not a name that had come up yet.

    ^ What have you heard re: TW in SF? Curious about promoter/venue ...

    fun fact: the slow hands ayli set that everyone loves is the direct result of a TW cancellation
