Great read and some statics (no no, not loads of numbers all boring business style, well presented charts and it’s worth checking out) from Beatport about Dance music fans. Rather than hashing it and posting it here check out this article on Beatport news about how “EDM” fans, bring more friends to gigs, would pay for live streaming events, and are more connected to artists than other genres.
As we’re starting to use this site more and blog and share things outside the direct realm of DivKid … I stumbled across a great site that I think will be a good read for a lot of you. It goes into the music industry, talks about indie electronic music (independent, not tight jeans and guitars) and little bit about production (there’s a post called 6 reasons why not to use free plug ins). Well worth a quick browse. So check it out.
Just wanted to share this video that I stumbled across on Muff Wiggler. As we delve deeper into modular synthesis it’s nice to get into interviews and hear from developers. If you’re into modular (or just curious) this is a 5 minute interview.
OUT NOW is our latest remix, this time for Export Elite. The original track Why You Lie To Me was by Votchik who produced the original and sung on the track. We’ve taken the vocals as inspiration and re-worked a new chord progression and harmony across the track. It’s a bit more Indie Dance and Nu Disco vibe than usual for us, but it’s funky feel good disco electro super fun time happiness … that about sums it up!
Grab the track from Beatport HERE and listen in full below.
