    That is the point. It is absurd because he thinks the idea of people getting upset over legally downloaded tracks that they bought from a producer who likes giving away his stuff for free is absurd.

    thats not the absurd part. the part im talking about is the whole laptop/pioneer/traktor analogy. it doesnt make any sense even if its sarcasm

    what does that have to do with investing to be a "real" dj?

    cause even "real" djs use laptops....

    There are tons of great free tunes on Soundcloud for various reasons. Some are too old to sell. Some can't be released because samples couldn't clear. Some dudes are just cool. Civic Music has nearly a gig of free tunes on their site. Machine Drum and Om Unit release tunes on the regular. I don't see the big deal. As long as the dude isn't stealing released tunes and the music is good, who cares?

    "I believe there will come a day in our lifetimes when retail music will no longer exist [for] purchasing. People might pay for access. But this decline in the value of recorded music- it will surpass zero and start to be negative. No one can make money selling songs for 99 cents, or 69 cents, as Google does sometimes," Adell said. Which is probably why Beatport are taking on new projects such as the one with Shazam."
