It hurts my brain so bad......

This is why I want to see the ultra mainstream electronic music die off. it is such a mockery of what real EDM scenes are like and it has just become an absolute sham.

You know, we can't even blame people like Paris Hilton, it's easy money. The worst are the promoters and clubs inviting these kind of 'artists' and pay a shitload of money for bullshit only. And they probably even know that! :undecided:

Oh absolutely. It is not Paris' fault that promoters are willing to stuff her full of cash for doing nothing just because DJing is the "cool" thing to do right now.

The current environment (like pop music) just really allows anyone, talent or not, to become the next big thing.

Paris Hilton posted a photo on FB with her new bought DJ equipment and Airwave reacted on it, really nice read:

Dear Paris, Amazing shopping, and I truly adore your recently acquired gear. Let me tell you a (long but true) story about the reality 99% of the musicians like me live every single day of their life. It took me 18 years to reach a state of musical happiness with what I do. I'm a professional composer, play keys, have a HUGE technical background under my belt as a producer of electronic music. I write scores for entire orchestras, write music for media and tv, and on top of that have a great career showing several collaborations with top deejays you have met in person. They're all very famous now, and unfortunately, I didn't have their luck and I still don't, which partly explains why people like me working up to 80 hours a week have trouble paying up their bills every single term, living in a thirty square meter flat spending 5 bucks a day for food. That's the lot of many of us. But back on topic. To be honest I'm not even jealous like many people overreacting in the comments. The gear doesn't make the musician, and it'll never replace knowledge and emotional content... That said... The fact that you invest so much money in this gear makes me happy because at least it shows that you really want to get serious about making music. So, beyond a photograph of your gear, what I'd expect from someone like you is to know how to use this gear up at its maximum potential. And now you have the gear, I'm sure you're willing to learn how to use it properly. Don't read any sarcasm here. There's none my end. There's only a guy who sees the good side in each of us, and expects from you to give the best of yourself into something and prove the haters wrong, and you will prove me that I'm right thinking that you didn't just post a pic to get some likes and comments. I'm also a pro-grade teacher with 2 years full-time experience in teaching electronic music production and composition coaching FYI. But I guess you have way "better" people around for that in the microcosm of your life, that I nevertheless respect. So, I'll be happy to appreciate the results of your learning in the next few months, just like 99% of the electronic musicians that we are, we want to hear the result of your skills and the translation of your emotions into pieces of music. You've got the gear, madam, now it's time to learn. Sincerely Yours. Airwave

hahaha that is truly epic!

I swear, I think if I saw her post something of her in the studio, actually learning to use that stuff and do something with it that was not absolute crap, I might actually gain a bit of respect for her as she really is trying.

However, I feel this is just some "hey look at me" moment and she will just go back to playing pre-recorded rubbish.

Hahahaha yes ofc, but the way Airwave is writing this, staying 100% respectful and leaving it up to Paris (as how she will use this equipment and if she's really willing to learn) whether this letter is full of sarcasm or not hahahaha.
