New media allows us to see behind the curtains of the music industry and my decision to support or ignore the works of some musicians is absolutely personal. Mostly, I try to separate the art from the artist. In my opinion, if you can seperate the artist from the message, do it. If you can't, I get it. I play some very talented and sometimes unlikable artists. I have a reasonable amount of empathy because artists are naked all the time. They're bound to get their [figurative] dicks caught in something. I'm not a fan of people who make music, I'm a fan of music so I choose music from there. That place.
I'm from the vinyl era and 10pm - 4am set of soul, disco funk, house, hip-hop, classic rock, 80's and reggae. When I mix them all together, I call it the Boutique Lounge Sound. It's tunes for very late night cocktails at boutique hotel lounges in the more ecclectic parts of the U.S.
Enter The Internet.
Mix One: Soulectro featuring 'No Master & Unmastered' Soulectro Mix
I know what you're thinking. 'You're opening act is crayludes, DJ'. Word, Ah know. I don't give a shit. Her spit is fire.
Mix Two: Boutique Lounge Sound featuring 'I Do What I Want' Mix
The Boutique Lounge Sound was inspired by efforts to please an ecclectic crowd with a little edge and lot of style. This is somewhere in New York somewhere.
Mix Three: Audio Theater featuring 'Robot loves SIRI' Episode 5
If you've been listening to Robot loves SIRI, the DJ is me. The bot's a real handful and and I bet he's dying for season II.
Mix Four: Reality Radio featuring 'It's Day or Night' Episode 4
Inspired by the term 'drink up it must be 5'oclock somewhere' I call this show it's day or night. Just La Vie. Let your mind roam and also here's some tunes.
Musicians have some new options. New ways to be on the internet. B´st of Net:™ Magazine, Radio and URLTV.US promotes new media and indie art business. I have a little say around those parts. 16 Bars .live is an interactive platform that should be fun for spoken word and freestyle jammers. Mostly, I'm getting ready for the exodus to sansosh.
