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?
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.Â
What do you think? Is DRM in music wrong? Is it even a problem at all? Would you buy DRM (or 'copy protected') 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?
I like to keep things simple and to the point. These are the reasons why I do what I do.
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.
I've been a fan of Xzibit since I copped his "Paparazzi" cassette single back in 1996, when I was finishing college at UCCS.
