Keeping Your Music Collection A Secret... [aka how to be a FUCKING WANKER CUNT]

There are many artists unknown and it seems counter productive in supporting them but if you told everyone the tracks in your setlist perhaps everyone would start using the same tracks and then you would have to change your set...

My question is what do you do? If your like me and like to keep the artists I know a secret so they don't ruin the magic of my own set you probably think of ways you can avoid others finding out who is being played when your performing;

1. Detune the original song so that those phone apps can't recognize the song

2. Use very little of each song so they have no time to figure out who it is

3. ? (your idea?)

But then again, maybe no one cares? It seems very selfish but if you have good enough music of your own along with others music you will only be supporting them through your own music...

Please share your thoughts and feelings and by all means if you think what I am doing is wrong, tell me

Re: Keeping Your Music Collection A Secret...

I'm not that possessive. I'm not a DJ so setlists aren't particularly relevant for me, but I like to share the music I like with others. Of course, most people I know have really one dimensional tastes in music so they don't enjoy most of it.

Re: Keeping Your Music Collection A Secret...

I love DJ'ing because I can share my favorite music with everyone. I would share the tracks, because I want to support the artists. Do what you like tho, just be nice about it.

For sure. That's what I do even as an artist. If I promote myself, what I'm ultimately trying to do is promote the whole concept of creative music, and while I have my own style, I am quick to give credit to those who've inspired me.

Re: Keeping Your Music Collection A Secret...

mate who gives a fuck seriously, concentrate on doing you

who is actually listening to your sets anyway?? who is gonna steal your 'obscure' tracks?? people probably dont like them anyway. if they do thats fucking great youre helping music you love flourish

if youre a good DJ it wont matter anyway man, if youre a good selector you should always have new great shit to play.

seriously this attitude is just wanky

If you are playing tracks popular enough for a phone app to recognize them you've got nothing to hide...

Re: Keeping Your Music Collection A Secret...

if i play tracks in a set it's because i want people to hear them, experience them and hopefully also get into them too, so of course giving that info is the better way.
the only time this leaving out the tracklist works for any kind of getting people talking about it is if you're a mega star dj that people obsess over regardess of what you play and will want to know what it is and buy it just because you played it, they don't have to really like the track. of course, that isn't the OP. if it was, this thread wouldn't exist.

He does make a good point though...

What gives you the right to go to such lengths to keep people from figuring out what track it is when the track was probably made with the DJ set in mind in the first place?

His point of view is just as valid as mine and he obviously has some feelings toward mine that make mine seem 'wrong' but it isn't and neither is his and he knows this. I understand the frustration but if you really want to know it's because throughout my development as both a multi instrumentalist and computer musican I have developed a very certain taste for a certain sound that when I have shown others both my own and the artists I know, they are blown away (here comes some more attacks but thats okay because im okay with putting myself in a vunerable position both in the beginning of this thread and this message) and these aren't just random people, I have spoken with artists like koan sound, eskmo and skrillex and so regardless of what others ignorantly presume I know I have something special both in my own music and my collection (though I haven't shown them my collection, just my music).

It's because I want to catch the world by surprise, and I will. Even as I write this like no other artist has I will shake this world by surprise purely because I know I have something so special yet not necessarily unique, it is simply a result of constant self defeat and hard work. I have something so special that I will be amongst the top and even then I will still get these haters but even then I will still take the time to say the words that still wont convince them because no one ever does, people usually just ignore haters but I accept everyones point of view and care even about the negativity.

Freedom is what gives me the right. And to get more to the point I simply want to shock the world for the same reasons people like to scare eachother every once and a while. It's fun and unpredictable which is what I thrive on, so go ahead and say the predictable things because you are just as important as the people that say the unpredictable things.

I realize other people might be playing what I am but it is how I mix it and what I mix it with that will set me apart from the others and if you want to get really personal I was taken from my mother when I was 8 and everything that she gave to me was taken from me when I went into foster care so I am very possessive.

I enjoy talking to you guys, emotional or not emotional, I welcome it all.

Personally I don't really see the point in it either but each to their own...

I am just wondering if those techniques wouldn't mess up the sound of the song and actually make it less enjoyable for the audience just so a couple of DJs in the audience don't steal the tracks your playing...

Just seems kinda out of proportion if you ask me...

Yes of course, Im not meaning out of tune to a CRAZY point where it loses quality in fact sometimes SOME parts of the song sound BETTER tuned up or down especially when mixed with songs that compliment it

I read all of that sadly, and honestly i find all that to be a totally 10 year old attitude, it's great you have confidence in yourself and what you do sure, but the way you put it... generally you won't blow up or get massive with that kind of tone, not in any way that is respectable anyway.

Quite simply do you realize how awful it is that you are so materialistic you cannot share your love for music and your passion with others? do you realize how selfish and narrow minded that is? I honestly feel after reading all that, the only person who is going to get surprised is you when you fail hard at your own goal mentioned, stop being deluded. hiding tunes from some one is what you would do in the school yard, actually no it isn't - i can only ever remember the kids saying hey have you listened to such and such, no? here listen on my Walkman"

Re: Keeping Your Music Collection A Secret...

I was trying to find one of the scenes from Samurai Champloo with that nagumichu dude going 'Who am I? I'm gonna be BIG' on youtube, but alas, it doesn't seem to be there.

That's what the whole 'i'm gonna catch the world by surprise' thing makes me think of.
