My mother always said, don’t say a thing if you don’t have anything nice to say. She wasn’t the first to ever say it but she’s my mom and she’s pretty much always right. That being said, sometimes I just feel like I need to release some brain farts here just to maintain my sanity.
Now, we stem from a region that isn’t world-renowned for producing good music and i have been guilty of adding my own rabbit poop to the pile of crap publicized as representing the best we have to offer, however you would imagine that this trend would eventually end and a new crop of talented people would rise etc etc. Nope! Same old shit being regurgitated, re consumed, and regurgitated again in a never-ending disgusting vicious cycle. Is it the artists fault? Society? Money? The people running the magazines and radio? Perhaps a general lack of identity or just a sign of the times we live in where a guy can get implants and claim to be a woman trapped in a mans body and get more attention than the few hundred thousand people dying in conflict regions. Either way, it’s shit, sorry.
I recently witnessed the release of another example of the worst this region has to offer musically best described using any of the following; No talent, no originality, self-indulgent, processed, recycled, cliché, or just plain elephant turd on a beat. The best part is some people genuinely like this runny pile of diarrhea…maybe it’s a fetish or something. The DJ’s must feel like dung beetles trying to roll this crap into something manageable hahaha, i kill me. Some of you may read this and will probably hit me with the old tried and tested argument of “If you don’t like it then don’t listen.” Trust me i don’t listen to shit like this (go watch my video lol) and if i did i would probably be sitting next to you in some shitty club spending thousands on bottles and trying to hook up with prostitutes jamming to this cancer inducing excuse of a song. Only problem is i love music and it upsets me when this is portrayed as the music to represent me and my peers that actually make an effort to create something with a little more passion.
Anyway, I’m not going to promote the person responsible for this atrocity and i doubt it would make difference even if i did since i have so many non-readers visiting this page.
Someone will write something very similar about me and The Recipe very soon when we begin releasing our music but i understand it comes with the territory and I’m fine with people expressing themselves about us, even if it is negative.
We’ll see soon enough.
