Rear Window Part 2 Interview With Paradigm Magazine

Here’s part 2 of the Rear Window interview series with Paradigm Magazine.

“DJs had to start pandering to the lowest common denominator, like these soulless vapid … you know like iPods. And it became less about selection, less about taste making, less about personal choice and aesthetic, and more about playing whatever pop record it is. That became the norm and that wasn’t the norm. The sounds keep on changing…it’s up to DJs to either change with it, adapt with it, or stay on top of it, otherwise you’ll just become irrelevant. If you’re a taste maker you kind of have to dictate it and kind of ride the wave wherever it goes.”

    i disagree tastemaking means playing music that you believe to be timeless not riding trends

    i’d rather introduce or reiterate some badass stone soul than pander to the diplo crowd
