How do you discover new music?

I'm online for a large part of the day, mainly because of the work I do as a Web Developer. I find great new music just by surfing online and reading forums and blogs. I don't spend time at record stores like I used to when I was a DJ. Back then, I would spend hours digging through vinyl. Now, I spend hours surfing through pages.

How do you discover new music? Radio, friends, online, record stores?

Do You Care About DRM (Digital Rights Management) In Music?

Since I started making music back in 2001, I have been following the whole 'DRM and music' discussion. This topic still draws out a lot of different opinions. The opinions vary based on many different factors, but the overall feeling I get when discussing this topic with friends in the music industry is that it is a good idea, but it has been terribly implemented. 

What do you think? Is DRM in music wrong? Is it even a problem at all? Would you buy DRM (or 'copy protected') music?

Does Sound Quality Matter To You?

As a producer, musician, beatmaker, whatever-you-want-to-call-me, I hear a lot more than my friends who are not into really listening to music as I am. Let me explain...

When I'm with friends or my wife and we are just chillin', listening to music, vibin' off some of the tracks we grew up listening to, I might point out something in a familiar song that I think really sets the track apart. I forget that my friends (especially my wife) don't really listen to music the way I do as a producer - disecting the track and even listening to parts while blocking out others, etc. Most of the time, they just don't hear what I'm talking about, no matter how many times I rewind the track.

Anyway, sound quality matters to me, obviously, because the better the quality, the more I am able to hear and enjoy. I have learned to appreciate the fact that other people get enjoyment out of music in totally different ways. Sound quality is not a big deal for many of my friends. My wife will jam to a song playing on a radio station full of static, just as hard as if it was playing with pristine quality.

What about you? Is sound quality a factor, would you pay more for higher quality downloads or subscriptions?

Do You Subscribe To A Music Subscription Service?

Music is everywhere. I was just thinking about how much we are saturated with music everyday. Almost every commercial/advertisement has music in it. I was on the metro (subway) yesterday and it hit me...Even the warning about the doors closing has a little chime before the vocal warning.

What Music Media Format Do You Prefer?

Do you buy CDs? Or do you get most of your music online through MP3 downloads? I know there are some producers and beatmakers out there who still prefer digging in the crates for the best vinyl (records).

What do you prefer?

Its about my grandmother that died while I was holding her hand and how I was rebellious but she continued to pray for me and I didn't give my life to Christ until after she passed. Man its mad emotional I was crying while I wrote it. Please get back at me fam. Grace and Peace - Ricon
