pedro also showed his own work.
i dont mind the producers who show their work, probably as a promotion for an upcoming album, at least you know he invested hours, days, month, years to produce these tracks.
i mind the DJs who play nothing they actually bought somewhere ..
whats the mindset behind that, on rhadoos mix 15/17 tracks are unreleased - so whats the message? these tracks are good enough for a fabric mix, but not good enough to be released? not even digital?
Well rhadoo's done the same thing as pedro (in a way). Obviously your own productions represent you in the best way possible as an artist, but so do the productions of your circle of friends. The people around us are an excellent reflection of who we are as we often share the same or very similar influences/background/view on things. So making a mix of your own tracks and mixing tracks thrown at you by your close friends is kinda similar, it could represent the same thing just in a different way.
And why should they necessarily be released ? So someone puts a "£7.99" sticker on it and me and you get to OWN it and put it in our collections, maybe play it for our friends now and again. Its just going to be another record. It makes little difference how good it is, we got it anyway, the same way we got 100s of decent records and 100s of excellent records.
Of course they give us releases to keep us happy but they have to keep us thirsty at the same time. The way i see it, the big thing about these guys is hearing quality rare music. I mean thats what you pay for isn't it ? To hear a few things you've never heard before ? Why pay to hear someone play stuff you've heard before or you will hear again next weekend or even play it at home? And whats more rare than something which has not even been released ? For me personally it makes it more exciting (not necessarily good tho).
Hope this makes sense
Raresh tracklist looks sweet so I'm looking forward to it, but not as much as the launch party. Roll on October
