Get acquainted: Wax Wreckaz interview with The Gap

Only a couple of days ago we celebrated the release of the new Wax Wreckaz banger Heavyweight Sound.

Food for thought: how important is the artist?

It might sound like a mundane question, because most people know that without the artists there would be vast nothingness in the musical space. Still you’ll find major record companies out there completely ignoring this very fundamental fact. The latest case is Sony Music forcing Madeon to take down his music from Soundcloud.

Food for your DJ-Set: Karmaboy – 1987 EP

Since years of djaying and crate digging, Düsseldorf’s very own KARMABOY drops his Debut EP simply entitled „1987“ on Ching Zeng Records.

If you at least got a glimpse at one of his Sets, you can already guess the significant influences these 3 Tracks have. Starting with “Nineteen”, an uncompromising up-tempo Banger, inspired by the “hood attitude” of such genres as Jersey- / Baltimore-Clubmusic and Ghetto House in the likes of Dance Mania, but with rough cut edges of the UK Underground Sound as well as a pinch of Peaktime Techno.“Eighty” sets sail to a slightly different, but nonetheless heavy direction. Half Time Trap Beats meet arabesque Melodies, arpeggiated Synths and winding Vocalsamples.Finally “Seven” continues in that manner but tightens up with an exclusive feature of Berlin based Rap Duo the “Nicest Dudes Around”, in which they lyrically claim sociocritical thinking and and conscious awareness in modern times.

Darth Vader Streaming (Source: iPod ad by hitokirivader, found at: http://www.moddb.com/groups/501st-legion-vaders-fist-fan-group/images/darth-vader-ipod)

Food for thought: Streaming is the future – just not for the average artist

So streaming is the future? Yes, it is. It just isn’t for the average artist. We’re talking about the talented artists out there that have an actual fan base. The ones who have created a demand for their music that needs to be satisfied. It is those artists, who won’t be able to survive solely off streaming. It just won’t happen. It could, but it depends on so many factors coming into play, you might as well wait for a major label exec to just give you a share of his income to compensate you for the shitty deals that have been negotiated on behalf of artists and songwriters in the digital age.

Diplo is showing artists how to take their destiny into their own hands

It is only a matter of time before artists realize that they do not have to place their faith in others anymore. The revolution is constantly happening in the digital space. Now BitTorrent – once the music industry’s scapegoat, because people were using it for so called illegal filesharing – announced a distribution and payment model, where the artists and publishers keep 90 per cent of sales. None other than Diplo is accompanying this announcement with the release of his debut album “Florida” via BitTorrent Bundles.
