    Default Promoters that dont have a f**king clue [RANT]

    So its saturday afternoon, im bloody skint so i cant go out and i get a phonecall asking if i wanted to do a 3 hour bar gig, funky house, 60, can you be here in 2 hours? i said yes. spent about 30 on new funky tracks and turned up at the gig.

    2 songs in and the promoter says to me, what you playing is far too heavy, tone it down a bit, so i lowered the low end EQ on traktor (playing external btw) just to keep the low ends permanantly down. few minutes later he moans again then dissapears

    Half an hour later turns up with a USB stick and told me to plug it in, found a loooong saxaphone and piano based tech song (the man with the red face, if anyone is interested) took out my x1 and blasted in the USB stick, first song i seen, laidback luke - brand new bitch ***.H33T.** size:5.4mb. Second song, LMFAO - sexy and i know it (Mord fustang remix), again, shite filesize.

    Torrented, shite quality, not funky house.
    So in his eyes, Two of the biggest names in dutch and electro respectively, is heavier than Laurent Garnier - Man with the red face (Youtube it now!).
    Plus the fact that the whole place was busy, people were dancing and i never seen a single person leave untill half 10 (Bar shut at 11).

    took my pay and blocked his number. the guy was well known for not having a clue before because he'd approached some guys i know in the past, his latest 'massive gig' had 55 in the door. And he had hired a magician for in the VIP. I just thought that once he suggested play some funk, i thought the guy had banged his head or something and now thinks like a normal human being

    /rant.

    Facebooked me this morning,
    'Sorry about being a little rash last night i had the manager breathing down my neck, go to this website here, *insert torrentz here* dont see why your paying for tunes that most of them you can get for fuck all, you still cool to play the pizza club tonight?'

    Urgh i want to punch this guy square in the face, once as a budding producer and two because he's an arsehole.


    Ty jester for changing name, i forgot we cant change title names after they're posted

    Stories like this always make me glad that I don't depend on gig money.

    Wasnt meaning man with the red face was one of the new tracks Just its one of my longest tech/funky songs so i had time to have a look through what was on this USB.

    And he was meaning they were too heavy as in bass heavy, then handed me electro tracks.

    he's a twat.
