i would have no qualms doing the same thing to entertain people in a less meaningful way but also make money that would then allow me to have an Alias which was true to my more specialist art.

if you think selling out even exsists and this is not an industry where people use there talents and skill in whatever way they can to help in all sorts of projects...and if you think that people just stick STRONGLY to there single underground nieche & make a living enough to eat and purchase a house etc. then you got another thing coming.

We all work hard for the money, and sometimes we have to work the musical equivalents of 9-5's on projects and alias's which are more a commercial venture than an artistic one to make ends meet....and theres absolutely notihng wrong with that.

And shit Deadmau5 stuff aint exactly pop music is it?
Case in point: Eric Prydz. I can't stand stuff under his name. I can't stand stuff under the name Pryda. But they both bring in the cash. His stuff as Cirez D, though, which is a touch more underground, tends to be sick.


As for Deadmau5, I can't say I've ever heard a full track by him...not my style.
