2017.12.26 06:51 geturass2mars My sweet older brother left this world this Christmas Eve. I’m here to share his story.

You fought glioblastoma till the very end, Josa. On December 15th 2015 you were first diagnosed, 2 years later you made it to retire as a Chief after 20 years of service in the Navy, something I know you were proud of. You were so so strong. I can’t begin to express how much I’m going to miss you, brother. I’m so proud of you and all of your accomplishments in this life. You left behind a legacy that your children will look back on and be grateful for. You were a father that put his children above everything else. You were a first born son that made his mom and dad so proud and were my older brother that shaped me to be the man I am today.
I wouldn’t be where I’m at in life and in my career if it wasn’t for your amazing talent that inspired me to draw every day. You brought me to San Diego, you let me sleep on your couch, you helped get me my first apartment and provided the foundation I needed to get me through school. That’s something I’m eternally grateful for.
Growing up you were my role model, every drawing you finished I studied and traced 20 times over. I remember as a kid hovering over your shoulder just to watch you draw and you yelling at me to stop blocking your light. 🙂 I read every comic you made and stole all your pens. People always liked my drawings but I would always say “you think THIS is good?, you should check out my brothers stuff, it’s the best.”
You introduced me to punk rock, comic books, horror movies and video games at a young age. Things I know influenced me in a long lasting way. You always pushed me to be original, draw from the heart, be humble and be myself.
We held your hand all the way to the end. We saw you through to the other side and you weren’t alone. You were surrounded by our Apa, Ama, Elo, Martina, Titi, Pepe, Jez, Coco, Naomi, our Tia Lourdes our Tio Alonzo, and our Nana. All who shared wonderful stories of how you made us all smile.
Josa, your kids will never lose the memory of who you were to them, I’m here to remind them everyday of what a great man you were. I see yourself in all 5 of your kids. Sebastian, Alonzo and Antonio are the splitting image of your sense of humor, your creativeness and kind nature. Bettsy is so smart, Josa, I see a bright future for her and Alkaid is an amazing son, he’s going to be the man of the house for the boys. A good brother to look up to. They all love you very much, I can see it in their eyes when they look at you. I’m going to make it my mission to spend time with all your navy friends and listen to stories of how great of a sailor you were. Stories I can share with your kids.
You are the ground beneath my feet and my inspiration I’ll always have when I put pencil to paper.
I’ll love you always, Josa. Your little brother.

My name is Professor Jon Seigh-Nauh and I taught thermo-nuclear expanerology at MIT and taught Mr. Chainz during his masters education at MIT. Here is a picture of me and Tity in case any of your are skeptical about the validity of my claims.
Also, here is Dr. Chainz while he dominated the world of college basketball for almost a decade, winning MIT the NCAA championship 7 times, making them a legacy team on par with the New York Yankees or the Toronto Blue Jays.

Questions Answers
You’ve said that Killa Mike and Ghostface are in your top 5 rappers, who else is on that list? And what was it like meeting those guys the first time, were you starstruck? Killa Mike, Ghostface, Nas, Jay Z, T.I., Jeezy. No I wasn't star struck because I met T.I., Jeezy, and Killa Mike before they were stars and none of them have changed at all. Only met Nas once asked him to host a mixtape for me he curved me, when I met Ghost I was drunk and we rapped his record "Wildflower" together outside of a nightclub and Hov is the coolest dude in the room at all times. Easiest person to talk to in the world you nervous around him something is wrong with you.
How did you so freely call budden a scum bag on donkey of the day? don't you feel weird acting cool with these dudes in person but then shittin on them when you need more content? between you and the rumor report the show is turning into a lukewarm TMZ. why not report on the culture the way other networks won't? Nigga please. I keep telling y'all I don't discriminate If I think somebody says dumb shit I'm going to address it. If Budden was there I would address it to him the same way I do everything else. He's entitled to his opinion about things and i'm entitled to mine I thought was he did was lame and when you say report on the culture we are. What you want me to talk about Budden's album? Oh yeah he doesn't have anything out yet. Think smarter kid.
Do you think Andrew Schulz has problems understanding the plight of the black man, he always metions that New York is a melting point but he seems to not accept there is white privilege? White people in general have a problem understanding the plight of the black man. People in general have a problem understanding the plight of the black man. They don't experience the constant paranoia we do well at least for me I have to worry about cops, other brothers, haters, only a blackman understands what it is to be a blackman.
Do you have a favorite episode of The Read? I love the relationship between you and Kid Fury and Crissle. It's so supportive and hilarious. I'm excited to watch Uncommon Sense tonight. I listen to every episode of The Read. Can't really pinpoint a favorite episode maybe when Cris went in on Stevie J. I'm huge fans of Kid Fury and Crissle. I fuck with people who aren't afraid to be themselves and who give zero fucks about what you think about what they think that's why I love those two.
Have you been to Moncks Corner or Goose Creek since the shooting in Charleston? I was in Moncks Corner and Charleston all last week for 8 days and Columbia i'm always home. I don't feel the need to announce my whereabouts when I'm home kicking it. Or anywhere kicking it for that matter.
Did you ever find out if it really was Elon Musk you had a conversation with? And what do you think about the idea of vacuum transportation? I would use vacuum transportation a couple of years after it's on the market. Let everybody else die first until they get it right. Don't know if that was Elon Musk. Lot of white guys look the same to me.
How did you the first season of Daredevil? What other shows are you watching? Loved it. Season two going to be crazier with Punisher, Bullseye, Elektra. Right now trying to finish OITNB season 3 haven't had time to watch and i'm watching Power.
Have you ever been nervous going into an interview...if so with who? Never get nervous for interviews. I enjoy talking to people. Asking if I get nervous for interviews is like asking if I get nervous to speak to new people I run into in everyday life.
You've tweeted about how companies pay you to promote certain products and bash on others. Care to elaborate? That was actually me being sarcastic. Since people always say you must get paid to promote anything I talk about nowadays I said no I get paid to say how wack shit is but it was sarcasm.
It seems like Hot 97 takes this 'beef' much more seriously than you guys at Power, do you have relationships with anyone over there? Nessa and Titi Torres. Went to high school with Titi that's family and Nessa used to work at Iheart and still works at MTV with me that's family too. I don't even know who else is over there.
Why are you supporting Hillary for president? Forget novelty, how about someone that's talking about doing things for working people and not multi-national corporations like Bernie Sanders? Also, I'm curious about whether you've ever watched The Young Turks? I'm not supporting anyone at this present moment I need to see a clear cut plan for police reform from some candidate and I need a president that admits racism exist and this country needs to do something about it.
You recently interviewed Jay Electronica, why do you think it is taking him so long to release an album? And favorite Jay Electronica song? I have never interviewed Jay Electronica. Don't know what The God is waiting on to drop his music when the time is right I'm sure he will.
You said earlier to Big Sean this year that he was in the second tier of rappers with Big Krit. Do you still think that's true? When I say second tier I don't mean skill wise. Sean can hang with anybody I mean as far as fame I guess Sean's profile has gone up over the past year tho.
Do you find that the more successful you've become, the more people that you used to be cool with have become salty towards you? Nope all my friends have been my friends for years and they roll with me. Anybody that's salty with me probably wasn't my true friend to begin with.
Would you send dick pics to a tranny to promote uncommon sense? Me sending dick pics to a tranny would make no sense. That's the show I would be promoting if I did that No Sense.
Were you initially scared when you heard diddy would become your boss? Did he ever forgive you for slandering his concubine Cassie? Diddy is not my boss. Not even close, in no way shape or form. Revolt and I heart have a partnership it's a difference.
Congrats on #UncommonSense my bredren! How long before you shoot you shot at FOX? Lol. What show at Fox? I don't know what you talking about. Lol but Uncommon Sense premieres tonight 11PM On MTV2.
Do you regret some of things you've done like the whole Mayweather thing? Don't you ever worry about future consequences or maybe it could stop you working with certain people or it may effect your future opportunities? In life you gotta learn to live with regrets. I don't worry about it tho and I told y'all a long time ago i'm a man of the people not a man of the industry.
Hey. Charlamagne! I'm a big fan and was curious as to how you got yourself involved in radio and comedy. I'm moving to LA for school and would like to pursue something similar. How did you get started and what advice to you have for someone that would like to get involved in radio? I don't do comedy but radio started as intern. Are you majoring in mass communications if so get an internship at the local radio station out there. Keep God first, Stay Humble, Keep Working.
If you hadn't gotten the internship at the radio station when you first started, what would your next move have been? Great question and I honestly don't know. I'm not into hypotheticals. I'm doing what i'm meant to be doing.
On a past episode of Brilliant Idiots, you talked about a conversation you had with a girl who worked on the show Finding Bigfoot, do you plan on having her on the podcast? Oh shit I need to. She told me they would see Sasquatch all the time and I believe her. According to her Bigfoot loves weed and bbq.
Who do you think Mayweather should fight next? Khan or Thurman? I don't think Mayweather wants any of those problems.
Lenard, whats going on with revolt? 50 got something to do with that? 50? Last time I checked that was Diddy network so Nah.
Favorite album of 2015? Tink. #THinkTink that album and it's not even out yet.
Lightskins sayin you been slanderin them? The will be alright tell them to stop acting like beige babies.
Was the Ed Sheeran interview one of your favorite thus far? Dude seems like a cool and down to earth dude. Hell yeah I want to do a buddy comedy with Ed Sheeran. A movie think it would some funny shit.
I've heard you bring up the books The Secret and The Four Agreements, what other books/authors do you recommend? Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav, Niggas to Gods by Akil, Power of Intention by Wayne W. Dyer.
Will you and Janelle Monae ever be a celebrity couple? I love her. She's incredible. What makes you say that?
Yooo... Can I get a drop, though? Sure. If you want to get shot.
Did you really bleach? ;) Yes several times a week.
Do you still feel that takeover was better ether? Yep. Without question.
Who do you got on Cotto vs. Canelo? Canelo all day.
Who's your favorite white artist? Robin Thicke doesn't count. Katy Perry.
Hey Charlamagne, I'm a big fan of your work on Breakfast Club as well as your Vlad TV interviews. My question is: when giving your opinion, do you ever worry or think you've went to far? For example, you killed Joe Budden on Donkey Of The Day earlier this week. It was definitely deserved, but does doing that sort of thing have any negative consequences? Good luck with Uncommon Sense and #staywoke. PS: Why does everyone call Joe Budden Joe Buddens? How did I kill him? I didn't say anything about Budden that wasn't already out there so technically he killed himself. DOn't throw stones when you live in a glass house right?
Hey Charlamagne just wanted to let you know that you inspire me daily. When can we expect some more details about your book? Book coming soon. Finalizing deal now

Questions Answers
Where's the new music brah?! Miss you <3. Coming soon! :)
Do you even lift? Aint nobody got time for that!
So, which artist would you like to collab with the most? Monstercat or otherwise. Thank you, I didn't realised that "French Kiss" was too short until after it was released!
Well this is a tad awkward because I am about to perform Madeon- Pop Culture, followed by Inspire and then Weapons by M4Sonic at my college talent show! Haha no worries all credit is going to you :) Link to i.imgur.com. I'm honoured! :)
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for making awesome music but I must ask do you compress first of eq first? It's different for every sound, but I usually eq last!
Can you make more launchpad tunes? LOVED Inspire and What's that Sound! Check this out! Link to www.reddit.com
1: I myself am giving a go at producing, I produce mostly songs along the lines of Chillout. What is, in your opinion the most important advice that you can give me as a young, inexperienced producer? 1) Don't feel like you have to stick to the rules when making music! Don't be afraid to experiment and think outside the box, even when you're just learning the basics.
2: What DAW do you use to make your tunes? 2) Ableton.
3: When can we expect another monstercat single? I completely loved Boombox, French Kiss and Next big thing. 3) I haven't got anything planned just yet, but definitely sometime soon!
Ever thought about trying for a collab with Madeon? I would love to collaborate with Madeon.
What's the thought process behind each of your tracks? How do you usually start, and where do you find inspiration? It all usually starts up in my head, I'll often hum catchy melodies around the house and then write them down on the computer and go from there!
Where did you learn to produce? Was it from youtube videos, a website blogs? I started with hundreds of youtube videos! The Sonic Academy tutorials were also great when i was getting started. Once I'd learnt the basics (and i still feel like there's so much to learn), my own experimentation brought about the most benefits!
I gotta say, love your launchpad mashups, Inspire mashup and What's That Sound. I also like how you used user 2 mode. Anyways, what software did you use? I'm guessing Ableton Live? EDIT - Also, for putting samples in User 2 mode, can you tell me how you did that? Midi mapping? Thank you! Correct - Ableton Live I laid out the samples in session mode and then mapped them to user 2. I preferred having the buttons light up only when I pressed a sample.
How old are you? 1) 17.
Top 3 singers you want to work with? 2) There are literally hundreds! I'll give you 4 instead - Justin Timberlake, Chris James, Foxes and Zak Waters.
Top 3 producers you want to work with? 3) The Neptunes, Arty, Madeon.
Upcoming producers to watch out for (besides yourself)? 4) Martin Garrix (He's hardly upcoming anymore, but listening to some of his unreleased material, he is going to be absolutely massive) and Lenno.
Favorite color? 5) Rainbow.
If you could pick one song from the entire Monstercat history, what would be one of your favorites? It would have to be Insan3lik3 - Bad Pitched From Heaven. It was the first Monstercat song I ever heard and it blew me away!
What's your favorite song? 1) I think my favourite song ever would have to be Justin Timberlake - "Rock Your Body"
Why did you start making music? 2) Link to www.reddit.com
How do you remember all the buttons on the launchpad? 3) Time! I spent almost 4 months on my latest mashup!
Are you planning on doing more EDM mashups (using the launchpad)? 4) My main focus right now is music production, but the launchpad is just irresistible sometimes!
Is your "special one" as dirty as your music? I'm not sure how to answer that one!
Woah 15 when you got on monstercat?? thats amazing! maybe ill be there by then aha. If you work at it, anything's possible!
Do you like smooth jazz? I love smooth jazz - but don't know enough of it admittedly! Frank Sinatra - My Way is gold.
If you could collab with any "Monstercat" artist, who would you collab with? You did say Daft Punk below but they aren't Monstercat. Love your music though :) Making something with Project 46 would be fun!
What DAW do you use, and what are your favorite features in it? Anything coming soon on Monstercat? Ableton! I find it incredibly easy to get ideas started in Ableton, everything just seems to flow so well. I haven't got anything set for release on Monstercat just yet, but you can definitely expect a release there in the future!
How do you feel about the fact that Madeon (who I believe was one of your inspirations for Inspire? i'm not sure) loves FL and says the same thing about FL? DAWs are mostly just about preference. They all have the capability to do virtually the same thing, it's just what suits you!
Dude, throttle... You're such a boss, I hope to see you live one day! Artists like you give me hope of new talent coming into the scene. What's your tip for a broke college student, aspiring to produce music in the future? Wow, thanks! All you need is a computer and a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) of your choice. (if you don't know what a DAW is, it's like a more complicated version of Garage Band) My DAW of choice, is Ableton Live, it's great!
What kind of equipment and software would you recommend? What's the best way to start a music career? Sorry for the overload of questions. I'll definitely keep an eye on your career, best of luck to you man! You've got so much damn talent and a fresh sound :) Start by immersing yourself in hours of youtube tutorials and then go from there - broke or not, you can make it. If you set your mind to it, the possibilities are endless.
Hey man, I love your tunes, been a fan for a while since I first started exploring Monstercat artists :) I can't get over how nu-discoey your tracks feel but they get so heavy, I love it. Anyways onto my questions. How long have you been producing? And what were some of your biggest inspirations when you got into producing? Ive been producing for just over 2 years now! Madeon was probably my first major inspiration when I started producing, as it was incredible to see his success at such a young age (He was 16 when I first discovered him)
Any advice or tips you can give for my first release? Im planning to get it promo'd on GlitchHop.net, thats a start :D. Congratulations on your first release as well! Make sure you send your music out personally to as many relevant blogs as you can, that's the best way to get your music out there!
Can you give me $20? Sure thing! Just send me all your bank details and I'll get it to you ASAP! ;)
Who inspires you? If you could pick 3 artists who sound most similar to yourself, who would they be? Those who inspire me the most sound almost nothing like me! Justin Timberlake, Daft Punk and Michael Jackson are three major influences for me.
Love your "What's That Sound" Mashup up man, been playing it in my sets regularly. I guess my two questons for you would be how did you get started in the electronic music scene, and what software do you use to produce your music? Thanks for doing an AMA, and keep up the awesome work! Thank you! When I was 12 I discovered artists like Basshunter online which sparked my interest in dance music. I started djing at age 14 and then was inspired by a friend of mine to get into music production. I started with - and still use - Ableton Live!
Do school struggles get in your way of producing? Do you sometimes have a rebellious attitude toward it? (i.e Madeon) Balancing school and music is incredibly hard! I've always taken pride in my school work, so dropping out of school has never been an option for me. If anything, I've learnt how to be more efficient with my schoolwork to maximise the amount of time I have to make music!
Can you hop over to Auckland to do a show? Maybe with Mikael Wills, i know he's a HUGE fan! Mikael and I are good friends! Would love to come over to New Zealand some time :)
Is there someone you really want to collab with? Also, what is your favourite font? If I could work with anyone in the world it would have to be Daft Punk. They're out of this world - literally! I've never thought about my favourite font actually, I always just seem to use Times New Roman (how boring!)
Never heard of you but after checking your soundcloud I can say it's remarkable average I mean seriously it's mad decent man! Keep up the mediocre work! Where do you see the EDM scene in 15 years? Do you think it's just a fad like a lot of people say or do you think this time it'll finally stick? If so what makes it different than in the 90's when EDM came back hard as well?? Good question! In 15 years, I'm sure that Electronic Music will still be incredibly prominent, because I have faith that the best artists will keep pushing the boundaries of music - something that I strive to do. I cant really comment on the 90's because I wasn't born until 1996, but just looking at the amount of dance music in the main charts now, and the amount that electronic artists are starting to get paid is a good indicator that it is here to stay!
Any thoughts of expanding into other genres? I find the developing trap and progressive house scenes quite interesting right now, though they might not be suited to your style. What'll be the focus of your upcoming releases? I've been making progressive house since the beginning actually, I've just never released any of it! I love experimenting with all genres, that's when I learn the most.
What did you think of 015 Outlook? And do you have any Monstercat releases in the pipeline? Thanks for doing this, love your music! Great album. I haven't got anything set for release just yet but will definitely be working with them again sometime soon!
How long does it take you to do a launchpad video? Also, can we have another launchpad video? "What's That Sound" was in the making for around 4 months. It can be a gruelling process sometimes but it's worthwhile!
How's MGS treating you and what are you gearing for when you leave school? Love it! I plan to take a gap year as soon as I'm finished school and channel all my energy into my music. After that, who knows!?
You planning on doing any Nu Disco like French Kiss anytime soon? Definitely. At the moment I'm making a lot of straight out 105BPM disco, it's the best!
Really glad you did this AMA, because this will be my first time hearing about you, and my Lord, why haven't I've heard about you before? So I just finished listening to "What's That Sound" and now "Boombox" some of the pianos chords and timbre reminded me of 90s house, are you influenced by 90s house? While I'm at it I might as well expand the question: What types of music/artists are you influenced by? Absolutely, I've only recently started to get into 90's house, some of it I find incredibly inspiring and groovy! I'm influenced by all genres, but find that those who inspire me the most are the artists I've grown up listening to - Eg Justin Timberlake!
Yo Robbie whats up? How long does it take you to produce a song from start to finish? eg. How long were you working on "Next big thing" for? It varies! Sometimes I'm able to lay down an entire track in the space of a week, whereas other ideas take months to perfect. "Next Big Thing" took about 3 months before I was ready to release it!
do you do the mastering yourself do you send it off to a sound engineer to take care of it for you? Recently I've started using mastering engineers to master my tracks, just because my $100 speakers aren't good enough to pick up every intricacy that needs to be heard! As soon as i upgrade my system I aim to go back to mastering my own stuff again though.
What steps would you recommend toward mastering the technical side of your DAW? I have a strong musical background and can come up with ideas for my works easily, but the problem is putting it to use. I struggle with sound design and mixing, mostly. Youtube tutorials! I found they were the best way to get started and begin to understand the technical side of production. I started by searching things like "Getting started in Ableton Live" and then went from there. Sonic Academy also have some great beginner tutorials, and Future Music Magazine is the best way to gain an insight into the way other artists work in the studio.
I'm not too familiar with your music, but after a quick listen, I fail to hear any disco at all. Even by NuDisco standards. Are you using Disco as a catchall for dance music or is there an influence that I'm missing? Disco is a major influence to my music, it's mainly the disco chord structures that i find most inspiring. My single "French Kiss" is one of the only straight Nu Disco tracks that I've released, but all my tracks have strong funky elements within them. A lot of the demos I'm currently working on have far more obvious disco influences - can't wait to release them!
When's the track with Lenno coming out? ;) We're a little stuck on the track at the moment, hopefully we can finish it up soon! Lenno's an incredible producer and has been a pleasure to work with.
Since you live in Melbourne, what are your thoughts on Melbourne Bounce? Good question! I actually love some of it - other stuff i hate. My favourite Melbourne Bounce track has to be "TJR - What's Up Suckaz", the synthesis in that track is incredible. Living in Melbourne, it gets played non-stop at house parties and often feels repetitive - but it's always good fun to dance to!
How is/was it being one of the youngest up and coming musicians in the industry? Did your experience differ from other "big" EDM artists, and if so, how? I feel like age is becoming more and more irrelevant in the current state of dance music - which is a good thing! Young producers are starting to be taken more seriously which is great to see. Someone like Martin Garrix, who is only 17 is becoming one of the biggest names in dance music - a credit to his incredible music. I'm not sure about other artists, but for me I've been incredibly lucky with the amount of support I've received so far. There's a long way to go and I can't wait for what lies ahead!
How did you start making music? Link to www.reddit.com
Whats the best advice you have, for someone wanting to grab local shows? I live in Ohio, so there isn't a whole lot of attention, for EDM here. For the most part, I have been contacting promoters, and venues my self, since I don't have a booking agent. I haven't actually played many shows at all to be honest! The most effective way is to connect with a booking agency though who will be in touch with all the local promoters/venues!
Are you gonna do some more launchpad mixes? i loved what's that sound btw :D For now my main focus is production, finishing an EP is definitely my next goal. The launchpad can be too much fun to resist though sometimes!
Was Next Big Thing inspired by anyone? Wolfgang Gartner was probably one of the most obvious inspiration for the track, but other ideas sprung from everywhere!
Why no song on 015? Boombox was one of my favorites on 014. Thank you! I've been studying for exams the past few months so haven't had much of a chance to make music recently.
If you could recommend someone to listen to one song you've produced which would it be? At the moment, "What's That Sound" (even though it's a mashup) really encapsulates the direction I'm heading for!
Oh. That's not the answer I was expecting. As far as electronic artists, Madeon and Mord Fustang were also inspiring :)
How long does it take you to finish a song? Songs can take anywhere from a week, to months and months of work - It's really different for every song I do!
How did you start? And what board do you use? For Djing? I use Pioneer CDJ's. For production/live mashups I use the Novation Launchpad! Here's how I got started: Link to www.reddit.com
Haha I was asking if it was a special someone. Ooooh sorry my misunderstanding! I actually started "Next Big Thing" on Christmas Eve, 2011, so all of my family were the special inspiration!
Hey man, it's me who made the cover for some of the singles :) just want to say, your music still rocks(!). Me and my friends are always looking forward to new releases from you. That being said, what's your top 3 favorite songs now/of all time? you can do one or both if you'd like :) Thank you! That's a tough one, but Justin Timberlake "Rock Your Body" is definitely one of them!
What the your favorite song that you have made? and also what car do you drive? I'm only 17 so I wont be driving until next year! My favourite song that I've ever made is actually a tune that no-one's ever heard. It's an unreleased track that will never come out until it's perfect!
When you are creating a song what element or objective do you usually focus on just so you are able to progress especially after coming back from taking a long break? Melody is most important for me, once I'm happy with the melody everything else begins to flow!
hes talking about them "big ass tities" A friend of mine recommended that sample actually! (from tropic thunder)
What musical background did you have before you started producing? And how long had you been producing when you did Better Than Expected with Insan3Lik3? I had guitar lessons for 6 years but gave it up a few years ago! When Insan3lik3 and I made "Better Than Expected" I had been making music for about 18 months.
I want to say: I love your music! "Inspire" is the greatest mashup I've ever heard, it totally blew my mind. Are new monstercat-releases in the pipeline? It's sad that there was no new song of you in 015. And, as a fan who wants to start making music on my own: Do you have any advice on how to start learning how to produce? Thank you! Youtube is your best friend when you're starting out, and then let your own experimentation take you from there.
How old are you now? I'm 17!
Can you give any tips and advice for making the nice leads and basses. Also what plugins and DAW do you use. I'm guessing Ableton + Massive + Sylenth1? I use FL + Massive + Harmor + Sytrus. My DAW of choice is ableton, and my main vsts are Sylenth/TruePianos. I've recently started using U-He Diva and Kontakt as well - loving them! The easiest way to make nice leads/basses is simply to experiment for hours at a time, that's all I do! If you're stuck, trying tweaking presets until you become familiar with the vst and then start making sounds from scratch.
I just recently started producing electro music and I'm almost done with my first song. What advice do you have for someone like me? Love your shit, by the way! Thanks! The best thing I ever did was begin to experiment with other genres before releasing my early material. It's a great way to gain a different perspective on music production and pick up new and exciting tricks. Once you feel the track is the best it can possibly be, start submitting it to record labels - good luck!
What do you draw inspiration from? Greetings from Japan btw. Everything around me influences the way I write music - family, friends, music on the radio etc, but as far as musical influence, a few of the most influential artists for me (outside electronic artists) are Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake.
If you could play alongside any other producer, who would it be? Daft Punk!
Can we get some stems of one of your songs? I'd love to hold a remix competition sometime soon, where'd I'd give out the stems. Just waiting for the right track to do one! :)
How old are you currently? I think it's great young artists are getting attention like this. It's inspiring. I'm 17!
Quick question, how old are you now? I know you said something about producing when you were 15. I'm 17!
Got any youtube vids? Im a massive fan of electro :) ps damn aussie pride awww yyyeaahhh! Thank you! You can search up my latest youtube video, "What's That Sound"
Do you play any sets around Australia, If you do anything planned around December to January ? I haven't played any Australian shows yet, but I definitely will soon!
What makes your music dirty? :P. It's mainly my synths/basses that make my music sound "dirty" for me!
Good stuff! Ever make it to the U.S. for shows? I would love to come to the states on tour! Hopefully soon.
Kick or Snare? Do you mean which one do I like most??
You're amazing! How long have you produced for? Just over 2 years!
What do you make music with? Ableton!
Did making "Next Big Thing" get you hella laid. Hahaha, remember I was 15 when I made that!
What is your opinion on: "EDM has been so boring recently. There is a huge lack of originality and there are far too many songs that sound almost exactly the same." I feel like people often get caught up in the trend of "what's cool" in dance music and ultimately lose originality and creativity as a result. When all people want to do is make the next "biggest drop", then things start to sound repetitive. For me, the idea that great people are inspired by great people is incredibly important. That's why I'm so inspired by people such as Michael Jackson, who are able to make timeless music - something I strive for.
What's that sound Mash up flowss. Keep up the good work and when you finish school lets see you in the states. Thank you, would love to travel to the states for a tour!
Ever thought about doing a concert in Australia (specifically Sydney)... Definitely! It's hard to organise a tour whilst I'm still in school but an Australia-wide tour is 100% on my to-do list!

Questions Answers
What's one thing the average person can do to get more out of a visit to a museum? Or, to take it further, what's one thing the average person can do to get more out of a work of art? Don't go to a museum with a destination. Museums are wormholes to other worlds. There are ecstasy machines. Follow your eyes to wherever they lead you, stop, get very quiet, and the world should being to change for you. And if you see me, say something! We can talk about it together.
Jerry, would you pay $140 million dollars for a Francis typtych? If you had the cash? Auctions make me sick. I can't stand them. They're ruining the art world. They change the conversation from art to money, from quality to quantities, and now those quantities are mass quantities. Hey did you ever notice the word tities is in quantities?
The Francis Bacon is completely predictable. A middle-brow painting by a middle-brow painter painting another middle-brow painter.
Banksy came to New York and the entire North East talked about art for a month yet you said it was bad. Dafuq? I didn't say it was bad that we talked about art. I said Banksy is a bad artist. In your heart you know I'm right. But I love that we all talked about art together. More, more -- but not Banksy, please.
Come on, you can admit it, nobody from Work of Art will ever be "the next great artist," right? I really like the work of Peregrine Honig, who was a contestant on the show. Look her up, She's in Kansas City and she also owns one of the greatest lingerie shops in this country, Birdies. I do all my shopping there. TMI?
Hey Jerry, you've written quite extensively on why you think the current art market is flawed. So I'm wondering more about the opposite of the spectrum. What is your vision for an ideal art market and how do you think we can achieve that today? Top question. I know I want artists to make money, and galleries, and I have nothing against collectors getting rich. But somehow all of this has gone way way off the deep end. But it will re-adjust soon enough. And art will go from being part of the 1% to its normal place of being part of the 5%.
I really love Marina Abramovic and I was wondering what you thought of the Picasso Baby video? Did it raise questions about the art world for you? Or was it just another marketing ploy? I was there. I fell in love with Jay Z's smile. I slept with him for one night, and readers have been calling me a "slut" ever since. I don't think the "Picasso Baby" video is art, I think it is a music video. However, and not to hurt your feelings, daaanknugs, I think Jay Z is better than Marina. I'm sorry. I'm not being flip. She's a bit heavy-handed, ponderous, and affected for me. But we'll trust you on this one.
Favorite museum or gallery in the city? The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the greatest, encyclopedic museum on Earth. Sorry, Louvre, your architecture is stupid, and everyone gets lost there. At The Met, you see art within 25 feet of the door. At the Louvre, you've got to walk a half-mile. Fix this.
What is your opinion on the situation at the Detroit Institute of Arts right now? Or the ongoing proliferation of ruin porn of Detroit? We are all Detoiters. All Americans are Detroiters right now. I tell you this here, now: This museum will sell its treasures over my dead body. Which may die soon, anyway. Stop with the ruin porn. Although it always does look amazing. It's getting generic, though.
Hi Jerry! I'm in grad school for art journalism, and sort of feeling like this was a terrible move. Granted, you and a few others just won't let the field die, but I think the program is putting the weight of "the future of art criticism" on our shoulders. There's only 8 of us in the program. I don't think that is an appropriate weight distribution ratio. Any thoughts to help us save the field? Thanks! You ARE the future of art criticism, yo!
Grow. A. Pair.
Never JUSt write enthusiastic reviews, or ONLY negative reviews, or two lines of snark: BE OPIONATED. Or die. Really. There is NO money in what we do. Do you know what that means? It means that you have NOTHING to lose! You are armed and dangerous, man. Now get out there; cover the artists and gallerists of YOUR generation! Now! And write reviews in fucking English, will you, for fuck's sake! I have NO idea what most of the stuff in Artforum is saying. No one does.
Jerry, do you think other art critics are jealous because they don't have their own an action figure? Link to imgur.com. This idiot Sucklord, yes, that's his ridiculous name, made this action figure of me. I don't think it looks anything like me, other than it's bald. I hear he made a bundle from it. I got nothing. I'm happy for him. All artists should make all the money they want. You know I love you, artists. Not you, Sucklord.
There have been a few record sales prices in the recent months and years. Do you feel the art market has rebounded from it lows in the at the turn of the decade? What do you feel should happen to the masterpieces recently discovered in Germany? Good questions. First the work found in Germany constitute a HISTORY CHANGING cache of art. Sadly, however, the real winners of this will probably be the 1000s of lawyers and the heinous auction houses that will swoop in and try to sell the art. My guess is that we won't see this art in our lifetimes.
Hi Jerry, this is @MarlanaAdele from Twitter. My question: During your career have you ever critiqued a particular body of work, artist or show, then revisited later to find that your opinion was drastically different? I thought the late Steven Parrino sucked. He made monochromatic paintings with canvas bunched up all over. But every young artist in the early 2000s loved his work. Around 2005 I finally saw why.
Rule No. 2: Always listen to artists.
What an honour to see you on Reddit, Mr. Saltz! I'm a moderator for /ArtSphere, we share essays and short critical pieces on art, and I've got a question I've wanted to ask you ever since you wrote your essay, The Trouble with Mega-Galleries. If you were to start your own gallery, how would it function? Who or what works would you represent? Great question. But all gallerists are missing the same chromosome. I'm missing a different one, which means I would never be an art dealer. I don't want to work with artists. I never ask artists anything when I am writing on their work. I trust gallerists. I go to 20 or 30 galleries every week. I have done this my whole life, so I better believe in galleries.
Jerry, Between David Byrne and Patti Smith, et al. there's been a lot of scuttlebutt about NYC not being a great place for a young artist. What are your thoughts? Wrong, wrong, wrong. I have not seen the city so open since the late 1970s. Kids can now live in a crappy dump in any borough, except Staten Island--I don't go there, I think it's like Mob Wives and I'm scared. So young artists, come East. We have many, many uniforms for you. Come here, have your nervous breakdowns, get insomnia, and like vampires everywhere, be with as many of your own kind as possible. If you build it, we will watch.
What is the role of critics in art? How should the artist interact with critics? Be nice.
Never use your sales pitch on a critic.
Be as honest as you can, I already know you want me to write on your work.
Don't be afraid of negative criticism.
There is a grain of truth to all criticism.
Focus on critics of your own generation. The geezers can't do much for you.
Critics should be critical. I can't stand it that about four generations of critics learned to write only enthusiastically or only descriptively or just write snark. These are the easy ways out. Being critical of art is a way of showing art respect.
How do two married critics keep some sense of matrimonial peace in the house? Seriously. Help. I'm a critic that's going to marry one of the best young art critics in NYC and we're both too bullheaded for our own good. How do you keep it in the broadsheets and out of the bedsheets? You are about to have the most extraordinary life lived in art that you can possibly imagine. In my case, my wife is by far the superior critic. I am in awe of her work. I like mine, too, so it's really, really easy for two critics to be together. You will talk about art every minute of every day for the rest of your lives. But, you will be poor until you die. I promise you this.
Hi Jerry! I'm 80% sure I saw you at ArtPrize and I was curious what you thought about the whole event. I LOVE ArtPrize. I believe in what I call "The Two-State Solution" of ArtPrize. There is one prize awared by the public. There is one prize awarded by artsy jurors.
Do you feel Warhol was a better Painter, Filmaker, or Celebrity? In the history of the world, no one ever put those colors together before Warhol did. No one ever had images skidding over one another. Warhol changed the way the world looks and the way we look at the world. That is fucking revolutionary.
Who was your favorite artist to meet? I have to say, although she's more of a meta-artist, it was Cynthia Plaster Caster. You know who she is? Just look up her name and Jimi Hendrix.
Hey Jerry, I know next to nothing about art but I read you in NY Mag all the time. My question is: What's one book you'd recommend to someone interested in art and learning more but with next-to-no-knowledge of art history/the art world? OFF THE WALL by Calvin Tompkins. It's about how artists like Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, and Merce Cunningham made the train of American art history jump off the tracks, and land on a new track - the one we're still huffing along on. And, it's an easy read. He writes in English, for God's sake.
Is photography dead? The art world thinks it's an undertaker. First, painting is dead. The novel is dead. Now everyone wants to know if photography is dead. The weird thing is, it IS dead in one way: when you are my age, there will be no more chemical film, no more chemical developing of film, and no more enlargers. The medium is in flux.
I would give anything to be a photographer right now. Photography is the easiest thing to make, and one of the hardest things to make well.
My pictures stink.
Who's the biggest fraud in Art? The dick-waving, masters of the universe, hedge fund art collectors who only buy what other dick-waving, masters of the universe collectors buy. What the market creates, let the market destroy. Bwahaha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.
How often do artists ask what you think of their work? What do you say when it's terrible? They ask often. I say it's terrible when I think it is terrible and then I say why. Don't ask if you don't want to hear.
Mr Saltz, serious question: Has an artwork ever gotten you sexually aroused? If so, which? (Okay, playful but serious nonetheless). A Matisse once got me all hot and bothered. Truth. I used to masturbate to Ingres' Turkish bath painting as a child, which I guess isn't as bad as the weather woman. And you? Do girls do this, too?
Would you like to see more art depicting fish? Who doesn't like fish?
Do you have a favorite artist, or is that not allowed? Not to be coy, I am lucky to have seen real 50,000 year old cave paintings. These are the most powerful images of mammals ever made. In a way, that would make these artists the greatest I have ever seen. By the way the second most common things in the caves are hand prints. We now know that 51% of these hands are women's hands. Whoa! Guess what the third most common thing depicted on all cave walls is? Va-jay-jays and wieners.
We know you're not a fan of Banksy, but how do you feel about graffiti art at large? I love art in the streets. I love art anywhere. Put the Mona Lisa in a closet and I will look at it. I love the chaos of New York. I don't want the street art to be cleaned up. I just wish that so much of it wouldn't look the same; you know squiggly letters of the artists name in day-glow. You gotta be better than that.
Have you any favorite street artists? I do like Barry McGree and Swoon very much.
As a former student of yours at an MFA program, I was wondering why you take such issue with them as institutions that take more than they give, but still continue to take their money as a professor. It seems like an obvious conflict of interest. Are you not in fact one of the people taking the money out of artists pockets? How many MFA programs are you listed as a professor at and accept money from to lecture? I only teach at one school now, The Art Institute of Chicago, my hometown. I love this school and I need this money. I do not hate art schools, I think they are merely much too expensive and that students aren't getting everything that they pay for. But I would agree, if there is a problem in art schools I would be a part of that problem.
Do you actually read all of your facebook replies in their entirety? Yes, absolutely. They. Complete. Me. I can't live if living is without them.
I just finished watching Breaking Bad and I know that you recently watched it as well. Reddit (along with the rest of the Internet) has a strong following of the series. What do you see is the future trajectory of Television into the contemporary art dialog? This is the golden age of television. We're living it. The Wire is better than any film being made today at a fraction of the price and the thing is like, 75 hours long. All movies should stop these days after 1 hour.
If President Obama asked you for advice on how the federal government should support the arts, what would you tell him? I would say, "I <3 you, Obama. Don't worry about us. Take care of those Republicans, will you?"
Jerry, you are a well known figure on FB and other online platforms. Is this just the beginning of your reddit supremacy? I love the smell of reddit supremacy in the morning.
Jerry, what is the future of art? In my opinion its been relegated to a hobby for the ultra elite, not the culture-wide phenomena of once upon a time. Art/artist-as-commodity seems to be quite alive and well and has had much cultural crossover into the mainstream. I guess I'm asking where is it going? Meaning this thing called the 'artworld' doesn't seem like it can last, so whats next? Come on! Art is NOT just a harmless hobby! Don't be so cynical! Art has been with us since the beginning; I imagine it will be here until we are not. Neanderthal Man made art. Art is part of a cosmic force. It is not optional. It is part of the Whole Ball of Wax.
What did you think of the Mike Kelley retrospective at MoMA PS1? Very moving. There are few artists working today who don't owe Kelly some debt of gratitude and influence. Bravo, MoMA/PS1.
Could you describe a time you revisited a work of art and found yourself changing your view on it completely? I never used to like the work of Louise Bourgeois. After she died, and there were numerous exhibitions of her work, I have to say I came around to her vision, her updated version of surrealism, and her magical drawings. I still hate the spiders.
There is a line of thought out there that anything and everything that an artist labels as "art" qualifies as such. I don't believe that simply slapping the "art" label on something meets the criteria for something to actually be considered or qualify as such. Is holding art to a standard censorship? An artist can call whatever they make art. That's fine with me. Our job is to decide if it is good or bad art.
Excellent, I can put "Artist" on my resume then, as long as quality is not a factor. Yes. You may put "artist" on your resume. That won't make you an artist, of course. Let alone a good one. But go ahead, put it there.
Jerry? Do you have something against Gabriel Orozco? His early fotografs are GENIUS. Love those pictures. I love the yogurt tops, but the guy fell into a rut and just makes those circle paintings and those curvy prints, and a lot of other non-thinking product. My number one rule, however, is I never count an artist out.
Can you name an artist whose poverty improved their art? I don't think poverty is ever good. It's a romantic idea that suffering makes us better. I don't buy it. I sometimes want to shoot van Gogh for killing himself. He was so, so close to doing in his paintings what he had already done in his drawing: The complete integration of painting and drawing. Goddamn you, Vincent, I love you.
Hi Jerry. What is your least favourite current trend as an subject matter for art? Tepid, tame, generic, modest abstraction. The colors are usually black, white, gray, maybe silver. Some reproductive technique, some spray paint, a smudge here and there and presto: made for pointy-headed museum curators. It's dead and it doesn't even know it.
Throughout history, why have some artists become famous and others remained unknown? Is it because their work is groundbreaking, something that has never been done before? The short-hand answer for this is "yes." A more complicated answer would be, for example, in the West, women were not allowed to be artists until the 19th century. So, 400 generations of women artists are lost. So, this is a complex question.
How did you become an art critic, and what is your advice for someone looking to do it today, besides blogging? Edit: I too am a huge fan and extremely excited about this AMA. We're twittefacbook buds, Jerry! Thank you. I became an art critic by calling myself an art critic when I was a long-distance truck driver. Have you ever tried to write? Until then, I had never written anything in my life. It's the worst thing on Earth. You can't listen to music when you write, you're alone 16 hours a day, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Just be whatever you are and tell people that's what you are and then prove it. See you in the Twitterspehere.
Jerry, can we go see art together? That's all. I never see art with anyone except my wife. But, if you see me out there in the trenches, please, please say hello. Tell me what you think, I'm all ears.
Why should anyone listen to you any more or any less than someone with an academic background studying art? They shouldn't! You pick and choose who you listen to. I trust some food critics; I don't trust others. Same with music critics and art critics.
Don't read me if you don't trust me. (But I wish you would read me.)
When is the last time a work of art brought you to tears? It happened recently but I'm forgetting what the work was. However, I can tell you I cried at the end of Matthew Barney's Cremaster 5 when he jumped into Danube and then 7 Jacobean doves lifted his scrotum into the air. True story.
Probably dumb questions but, What advice can you give somebody that is learning about criticism and wants to become sucesfull ? How did you change from a truck driver to art critique ? And Whats the best advice you have for a critic. Look at as much art as possible from your own generation. Stay up very late every night with artists and art critics of YOUR generation. Start a new world. Mine will be gone in like 10-15 years. Your turns then... And take good care of your teeth.
Hi Jerry!! You're awesome!!! Do you think that its heathy for artists to be examining modernism in the 21st century? Do you think that some of those styles can have relevance today, or did pop art end it all. I'm so over pop art. Except Lichtenstein (mostly). Also, does my art stink??? www.jonblatchford.net. Listen, ALL art is contemporary art. ALL art is "useful" to artists. From Cave Painting till today. Everything. Eat the world. Crap it out. Eat that crap. Crap it out. Embrace chaos. And take better care of your teeth, kid.
What do you think about the new high of $142.4M for a work of art? Yawn. Do we really care? Dick-wavers will wave their dicks. It is what they do. Same as it ever was. No impact on INNER-LIFE of art. Not on mine, at least.
Where do you and Roberta go on date nights? We look at art. That is all that we do. You will see us on Friday and Saturday nights at the Met.
Hi Jerry When you look at art as a critic, what do you look for? Is there a process you go through or is it organic? Have you ever changed your mind about a critique? What really gets you going (in a positive way)? Thanks! Edit - I saw a reply about a crit you did change your mind on. Frankly, I get very very quiet inside and I begin to hear what I am seeing. Ask me sometime if you see me in a gallery.
I like reading about art. The art world seems like a different world like Hollywood. Anyway, any other art critics or writers worth following? Or do you even read other critics. Are your art advices just for professional artists? Do you think hobbyists can make something as worthwhile as those who chosen art as their profession? I love your last question: "Do you think hobbyists can make something as worthwhile as those who chosen art as their profession?" YES YES YES. In fact, I sometimes think the best artists are actually what you might call "hobbyists." Hobbyists work from obsession, need, unexplained drives, mysterious madeleines in their minds, strange desires, and devote ungodly amounts of time to these off fixations that really only they understand and which they do not understand at all. They are commanded by higher voices. Boom! Darling, that's ART!
Do you think paintings will remain the gold standard of coveted art objects for the foreseeable future? Will new media ever surpass them? In international biennials and many contemporary museum art shows, paintings are virtually absent. These exhibitions are filled with videos, installations, digital media, etc. There are many, many art worlds. Art contains multitudes.
Is there any value placed on asthetics in the modern art world today? Is there a market today for loosely figurative (but not realistic) art today? Like the way Marie Laurencin, Matisse, Modigliani etc... were in the beginning of the century... ? Look, job one for you is to make certain that it looks like your work was made in the PRESENT. Of course, it will be rooted in and connected to history, timlessness, and all that shit. But without the PRESENT in your work, your work is the walking dead. Do me a favor: I LOVE those artists, but stop thinking about them for 18 months. See what happens. Bet you'll be freer and happier...
Any up and coming artists you've seen recently that you're really excited about seeing more from? Right now at Canada, a gallery on the Lower East Side, is a young painter named Michael Williams. Check it out and let me know what you think. I think he is developed one of the most interesting surfaces I have seen in a long time. I have to go back though. How about you?
I'll repost, just because I'm honestly interested but perhaps this question is too academic. Rirkit Tiravanija is wise. And right when he says, "I like positive irony. Irony can create new metaphors, and I find that interesting."
Can you give me your thoughts on why you think irony is such a valued vehicle of expression for contemporary art? You are right when you say you're troubled with the art-world's fixation on "disaffection."
Rirkrit is quoted as saying, "I like positive irony. Irony can create new metaphors, and I find that interesting." I love irony; irony is in the air we breath; Oscar Wilde said "All bad poetry is sincere." Shakespeare wrote "The best poetry is the most feigned poetry." Irony IS the human condition. Each of us is AWARE of being within ourselves yet outside ourselves observing at every waking moment. Even during sex this split exists. I think that the trick is to accept this DOUBLE SELF and to make art that is simultaneously SINCERE AND IRONIC.
I can get behind the idea of "positive irony," but I am often perplexed by the establishment's infatuation with disaffectation, and it's fear of meaning. Why is an honest gesture often reviled or shunned while one that fetishisizes the elision of meaning often coveted? Never, ever valorize sincerity. It's a loser's game. Heed Wilde and Shakespeare and you'll be in great shape. Trust me; I'm a professional. Make sense?
Why did you choose use a picture of you and Bill Clinton (twitter account) as a profile picture? Ref: Link to twitter.com. Don't know. Love the big lug. Miss the big dog. And, I guess I thought it would get people's attention. Now, I'm stuck with it.
What, if anything, do you dislike about the art world? I wish galleries had benches in them and served cashews. Really.
According to you, the best way to approach a US gallery when seeking representation from outside US? thanks! a painter from Canada. I am not an artist so I have no idea how one approaches a gallery. I do know that you should really research the galleries; really make it your job to know what they stand for, what htier vision is. Never, ever just try to drop off images at every gallery on the street. This is beneath you. I imagine that the best way into any gallery is through an artist friend of an artist friend of an artist friend. It is ALL through artists. I NEVER recommend artists to galleries. It would destroy all my neutrality with a gallery.
Cat or dog? Cat, cat and cat.
Jerry Saltz, you broke the first rule of Reddit and didn't post a picture of your cat! Our cat died in early 1998. Too sad to get another.
What's your favorite dessert? Ginger cookies. And I love cashews.
What can today's museums do to better engage their audience and avoid being seen as mausoleums? Just think independently. Don't just think about market share, and for God's sake, don't just show the same fifty-five artists that all fifty-five international curators persist in showing. It's boring. Stop it. Exercise your own taste. If we don't like it, we'll tell you. As you were.
Hi Jerry - Thanks for doing this. I liked your piece concerning the mega galleries. I was curious if you ever write a review and get scared to go back into a gallery because of what you have written? Also what did you eat for breakfast? Didn't you see the picture of mega-dealer David Zwirner trying to choke me to death this past weekend after i went back into his gallery for the first time since writing about the mega-galleries? I tried to choke him to death too. It was a draw. Check out my FB page from this past Monday. For real. No lie.
How do you recognize the difference between good art and bad art? That's like asking, "How do I distinguish between a good steak and a bad steak?" It is a completely subjective process. In my criticism I try to articulate the nuances of my taste and ideas the best I can. I want my readers to know all sides of my thought, as openly as possible.
Jerry, You talk a lot about young artists vs geezers. What about someone middle age who want to emerge into the scene. Any hope in making a splash? These days, yes. Everything is falling apart, except at the very top. This leaves the middle and the bottom open and porous again. My advice, other than making every art every free minute of every day, is show up. Go to galleries. Go to openings. Be around other vampires. Renoir once said, "No great artist in a Hamlet." He meant, artists must be around other artists in order to be other artists at all. Show up, Morcutt. I'll be watching.
Hey Jerry, I saw the artists opinion is important in understanding a work. I say, in case of understanding art, that is totally obsolete. Is it important for you not to understand an artpiece immediatly and turn to the artist for a better view on the work. Does it irritate you when a piece might confront you with a very narrative filled with critique, political content? Thank you ! :) If I understand what you're saying I think I agree. As Oscar Wilde said, "The minute you understand a work of art, it begins to die for you."
Jerry, I have always wondered a few things, since you and your wife have such great access to culture: would you tell me about a great piece of jewelry you got for your wife? What about it do you love, what drew you to it, and does it reflect any art she loves or an experience the two of you had? Thanks. I have gotten pretty good at picking very plain, simple rings fro my wife. At least she says she loves them.
Jerry, what are your thoughts on the work of Arthur Danto, and where do you see the nature of contemporary art heading in the near future? I never really read him. I know that many in the art world respect him enormously. I am very very bad at philosophy, however. Almost the second I start to read it I get sleepy. But I dig the people who dig it.
When do you, as art writer extraordinaire, get those celebrity first dibs to go check out all that recently discovered degenerate art in Germany? I'm waiting for you to explain to me how big (or overrated) that discovery is to the art world. My guess is we will never see this tremendous cache of art in our lifetimes, I'm afraid. The lawyers and the auction houses will be the real winners of this, which only repeats the original historical tragedy. It's like the demons of history won't go away around this issue.
Do you see art as decoration? Of course. But that is not the ONLY thing that I see art as. Art was once used to protect cites, ward off evil, to channel demons, to stop women from becoming pregnant, to commune with the spirit world, to only be seen by those in the afterlife. Art contains multitudes.

Questions Answers
1) How much sex, drugs, and boozing goes on in the studio? 1) Sex. Never seen it. heard of it, never seen it. Drugs. On occasion. Boozing. I've been known to have a Whiskey neat while in the studio, nothing overboard.
2) How do you deal with all the over-inflated egos? 2)Usually tend to treat them like children.
3) How much do you make a year? 3)More than $30k less than $200k haha.
4) How does someone with zero experience get into your line of work? 4)Youtube. There's a goldmine of tutorials.
5) What is the biggest perk/downfall of your job? 5) Perk: Travel! I love to travel! Downfall: People from my past "suddenly remembering" we're best friends.
6) Do you believe in any illuminati conspiracies? 6) A lot of people laugh at that illuminati bullshit. A lot of artists play it up, just to get people talking about their video. It's honestly just a marketing gimmick at this point.
7) What are the keys to being succesfull in your line of work? 7) HARD motherfucking WORK. There's no way around it. You need to spend hours mastering your craft before you'll even be considered.
8) What is the most amount of cash and/or drugs you have seen at once? 8) Cash: 500k at once. Drugs: I honestly try my hardest to stay away from all that shit.
9) Who is the most over-rated music star right now? 9) 2 Chainz & Tyler, the Creator.
10) What is the most degrading thing you have seen someone do to be around a celebrity? 10) I've had girls from my home town offer me untolds amount of sexual favours to have me let them meet their favourite singerappemusician. Girls can honestly be the worst.
2)Usually tend to treat them like children. So, $31,000. Yes I eat babies for 31k.
Can you explain why you name these too? I have below.
Dont you think Tyler's earlier work was good? I do agree that his new stuff is pretty awful. I've just really never been a fan of the guy in general. Just my own personal preference I guess.
I would like to ask you the question #3 again, because as a musician this is actually a line of work I'm considering. I'd rather not put my income out there.
For the first 10 years I made really jack shit. A few decent placements here and there, but nothing I could fully live off of. Now I can help my parents out, pay for my school, and be comfortable.
6) o_- Ʌ THE TRIANGLE.
12) What percent of your success would you attribute to luck/skill? 12) Luck about 30% the other 70% skill.
Oh yeah i can understand why. his childish way of reacting to success along with his cult army of teenagers yelling swag im surprised that i still like his music. I've never seen more white kids drop the N-Word because they think it's acceptable because they want to be edgy like him.
Here's the sad part: I'm gonna go look up this 2 chains guy/thing now. Birthday Song.
Don't ask me why. Just do it.
I wonder if hiphopheads has seen this... Couldn't agree more. If I knew how to cross post, I would have posted in there.
You still go to school? Yes indeed! Currently finishing my Bachelor of Commerce with a concentration in International Management.
That was intended to be a wink. I just realized it's other interpretation. This shit goes deep man... But...we must go deeper.
Finally someone who shares that sentiment. He seems akin to sophmore kids who shout fuck at the mall because it's not the social norm. Honestly, I've never heard it put in better words. Have an up vote.
Fair enough. I appreciate your reply. My pleasure, my friend!
I can't agree more. Have an up vote for agreeing!
By mr. 2 chainz I presume? That would be correct, my good sir.
There's no science to cross posting really. You just post in two subreddits simultaneously and title them cross posts so people know you're giving credit/letting people know the post exists on other subreddits. I'm going to pretend I understood exactly what you just said!
By the way, thanks for the AMA! And not a problem!
Dude, wtf? I didn't do shit to you. I'm sorry man. I'm just at this place in my life where I have to hurt others to feel better about myself.
I feel dirty. I need to balance this out. Who are two artists who you feel are underrated? Underrated artists? Logic - I suggest checking out his song "Numbers" annnd D-Pryde. Great rapper. Young dude. From Canada.
Have you discovered anyone? -Ever had to babysit performers? "Discovered" - No. I've worked with people before they were famous however. Notably - The Weeknd and Conor Maynard (although that was only mixing and mastering some records).
Babysit. Oh God. I've been waiting awhile to tell this story.
One of my jobs in high school was a studio technician at a local studio in my home town. As a studio technician I was basically there to work all the cable running and mic set-ups within the studio. One rainy night (gotta set the mood ;) ) I get a call from the studio manager telling me the normal studio engineer is out of town and they need me to take over for him for this 13 year old girl whose daddy was paying good money to record her demo. So, I raced to the studio, set-up the session and began the recording process. The records were all demo'd and done for her before hand, she literally just had to go in and lay vocals. Now even in my youth I had a good ear of what sounded good and what was terrible (I'm blessed with perfect pitch to top it off). Every take, this girls father would be bouncing around in the studio shouting "THATS THE TAKE! THIS IS THE ONE!". To the point of it becoming incredibly irritating. Now anyone who works in a studio will tell you, singers will rarely ever get it on the first take. After 5 hours of dealing with this, I eventually kicked them out of the studio for the night because I simply couldn't deal with her father.
TL;DR - Father was a Prima Donna - got his ass kicked out of the studio.
Was her name Rebecca Black? Hahahaha. Nope!
5 hours?? I commend your patience. He would have been gone after 5 minutes if I was in there. The worst part is they had booked 3 more sessions. I refused to work with them.
Was the girl's mother a Ma'Donna? Ba dom tisss.
Damn! I thought it would match perfectly! I wouldn't admit it if it was. I'd feel so much shame for not destroying the monster before it almost destroyed the interwebs.
What is it like working for such a large label? Would you rather work for someone else? How did this come about? First, thanks for the first question! I was getting weary that this would get buried!
This is my second label I've worked with directly (through a contract). The first one I was young, naive and signed a stupid contract that did more harm to my career than good. Working for Atlantic is exciting in all honesty. I've never been more comfortable with a major label! I really can't say enough good things about how they've treated me.
Would I rather work for someone else? By "someone else" I'm assuming you mean "another label". That being the case, if the terms of the contract were better than what I currently have with Atlantic, I would not hesitate!
The gist of how this came about is I've been producing music for just over 10 years, and their A&R department eventually contacted me after hearing an earlier placement of mine. They liked my ideas and my sound and offered me a contract to produce in-house. Luck mixed with a lot of handwork!
Hope these are clear and concise enough to answer your questions!
Pro Tools or Logic? One really good tip for newbies? I am an engineer of 3 years and about to begin an internship at an artist's home studio. I'm born and bred on Pro Tools, but I can never undermine Logic. Still a very powerful program.
I'm a big supporter in it doesn't matter WHAT you use, but HOW you use it. If given the option, I'll still rock FL Studio for production then export to Pro Tools for final mixing and mastering (Yes it's tedious, but it's just my style haha)
I'm so familiar and fast with PT now, that I probably won't ever switch. What about any tips? I always tell people, stick with what works best for you and you're most comfortable with.
As for tips. Stockpile as many effects, presets, and VST's as you can. You'll never know when you need that one sound to make a record hot.
Also, spend a good amount of time creating your own Compression, Reverb and EQ presets. This will help create your signature sound.
And just as a general tip for production, have a mobile set-up. ALWAYS. You'll never know when you need to work or have the urge to create!
Good tip, man. I actually have the Waves bundle, and a bunch more other plugins, but simply enjoy the simplicity of stock plugins that I rarely use anything else. I've honestly never used 80% of my effects and VST's but it's good to know they are there if something comes up or styles change!
Where's the future of music producing heading? Is your job threatenetend by the likes of Spotify and other companies similar to it? What's changed since it (Spotify) has come around? The future of Music is bleak and exciting all at the same time. It depends on what perspective you look at it from.
Bleak: Everybody and their Mama is a music producer now. Which has really watered down the quality of music out there. Labels can now by exclusive licenses to records for 19$-35$ then turn around and make a $1,000,000 profit off that song. Not to mention, you can see in a lot of songs out there, mixing, mastering and general creativity is almost stagnant. A prime example of this is the recent song "Pop That" by French Montana. Listening to that song actually hurts my soul if you listen to it with good headphones. The mixing is absolutely horrendous.
Exciting: EVERYBODY CAN BE A PRODUCER. The thing about technology becoming so readily available to everyone to create music, is it gives the people who generally didn't have an avenue to create to put their music out and show the world. I personally benefitted a lot from this aspect. Furthermore the need for a label is slowly diminishing. Meaning, artists can now make a sustainable living off being independent. See Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
I don't think Spotify or similar companies threaten MY job. Because no matter what there will always need to be people who make the music that will be listened to.
Manager gets 20, booking agent gets 10, so shit after taxes me and ryan have seven percent, TO SPLIT! That songs on my workout playlist.
Honestly. A lot of what he says in that song is 100% accurate. I feel bad for artists nowadays :(
If the need for a label is slowly diminishing, do you think they will try to have more control over artist tours? I don't know how much they have, I've just always been told that artists only ever make their money from merch. So feel free to prove me wrong if that is not the case. Go look up what a 360 deal is.
But essentially yes. Unless you're a high name artist (Drake, Kanye, Lady Gaga, etc.) who owns most of their publishing and a large chunk of their royalties. I can tell you first hand, the industry is panicking with the internet and piracy (See RIAA suing EVERYBODY). As a knee jerk reaction, yes labels are moving towards controlling more and more of what an artist does.
Most people being shitty producers, however, make it hard for those of us who have talent and do it well to have any sort of credibility with a label. A-freakin-men.
Producers are a dime a dozen these days. Just like artists. It takes a special person to stand out and leave their mark.
Back in the day, we had garagebands galore, but it took a special person to stand out and leave their mark. Everything changes, yet stays the same. That was deep man. Have an up vote.
How do large labels generally look at more underground genres? Do you ever get bummed out because you really just can't stand the music you're producing, when you know that this person will make boatloads of money off of no talent? I haven't come across music that absolutely breaks my heart to make. I'm a fan of all genres and sub genres. Except country. Fuck country. Don't ask me why, but the twang just kills my insides.
But. I guess to try and answer your question. There are songs out there that I sit back and think "Uh...wtf is this shit?". In terms of a mechanical stand point.
I like to think of myself as a musician who holds a lot of integrity and love for music so when I see that stuff, I feel it devalues what I do.
What do you think would sound better, 100 duck-sized horses or 1 horse-sized duck? If we could line the 100 duck sized horses in a choir line, and have them attend weekly practices. We might have something.
Although, the 1 horse-size duck might have an amazing baritone.
I'll take the choir.
Edit* I'm a retard at spelling apparently.
What do you think about "trap" producers such as Southside, Lex Luger, Sonny Digital, etc. I know they are successful (plaques on the wall, radio hits, Grammy nominations) and I personally like the sound. But sometimes I feel like they are copy cats of each other, and sound way too much alike. Opinion? I'm hot and cold on trap producers. Their sound is too easily duplicated and they literally all sound the same. I'm usually good at picking out who produced one song, but with them, it's literally like they have the same project files.
I'll never knock their success, however. They're doing something right and appealing to the masses.
While I have you here, another question. Ever work with Mike Posner? No! But he's an amazing writer! Amazing singer. Definitely doesn't get the exposure he deserves. Him and Mason killed Bieber's Boyfriend.
Some respect for MDL! that's what I like to see. he is so dope.. murdered that NY NY beat. He's a really great guy honestly. I've learned about 85% of my craft through him.
That NY, NY beat was deadly.
He's an all around really talented guy. Check out his YouTube videos of him making beats in his dorm room at duke. Also, you mentioned that you use FL. I do too. What's the best way to switch up your drum styles. My music has been sounding kinda stagnant lately. I find myself using the same drum patterns and sounds in almost every project. How do you get those (I like to call em..) "J. Cole" drums outta FL? Ignore the step counter and start playing with the piano roll for making beats. You can make interesting drum patterns! Other than that, MIDI it up! Which is essentially the same thing, but with hardware.
Hell yea, love my midi. Creativity just flows so much better with the hardware. Thanks for all the input man. If you ever find yourself in Nashville TN hit me up. I won't kill you. Lol. That's the biggest stipulation I have for friendship. You have passed! Hahaha, sounds good my friend!
Do you play any instruments? Does it help you in the studio? Do you ever lay tracks or dubs for your projects? I taught myself to play the piano when I was 14! And yes! Immensely. With midi technology it's essential. I can literally play any instrument through my midi board. I do both, depending on the project/genre. Never try to limit myself.
What do you think the music of the future will sound like? More inclusive. Hip-hop doesn't take anymore talent other than being clever with words (and even thats a stretch for some artists). I think you'll see Hip-Hop transform into the one genre that transcends race, gender, orientation, etc etc.
Mechanically. I think it'll start to sound more and more electronic influenced. I think a lot of genre lines will be very very blurry within the next 10-15 years.
What type of car do you drive? Yesterday I was whipping around in a badass Mustang...on my great grandparents farm...it was a horse is what I'm trying to say haha.
And nothing special! I like to live unassuming, BMW 323i - 2008!
Also I was wondering about the process from music production to track release, do the artists choose from a range of various beats from the label producers (I think I read that somewhere) and lay down vocals on them or do you work with some of them collab style? For Hip-hop/R&B/Pop modern genres, you'd be hard pressed to find an artist who just doesn't get flooded with beats and just pick and choose.From either in-house or independent producers.
There are still a few great artists out there however who sit down with the producers and churn out really meaningful songs!
Oh ok. Not a problem, my friend!
How does a musician these days get signed up for a label? I've heard that they look more for image than talent. Building a brand around ones self is crucial. Basically. If theres something you can do that you think a record label would have to pay money to have done, do it before the come looking. You'll be more attractive to them. Build an image, brand, fan base, personality, sound etc.
TL;DR - Labels are lazy.
Who haven't you worked with, but would like to? Haha, I understood!
Sorry, awkward grammar. I would LOVE to work with Eminem. Would sacrifice a small Brazilian boy to get that opportunity.
Hi, I have a couple things to ask! 1) I use fl studio for everything , what vsts do you use? 2) Why Pro Tools over fl studio for mastering? 3) Would you rather fight 100 duck suzed Trinidad James' or 1 Trinidad James sized duck? 1) Magician never reveals his secrets. However. I'll tell you Nexus is a great tool. One of my favourite despite its commonality.
2) I originally just used it in the infancy of my career to help myself feel more professional. When it comes down to it, I honestly believe FL has the same power as Pro Tools if you know how to use it properly. At this point it's more habit and familiarity.
3) FINALLY. 100 Duck sized Trinidad James. When I was a kid, my parents always had a problem when we went to ponds where I'd chase and try and kick and punch ducks. I'm a seasoned pro.
Biggest up and coming producer in your opinion ? I love Clams Casino's work! Right now I'd say him!
Nice! I'll check him out. Have you worked with MdL ? He's a good friend of mine, actually!
As a producer, what do you actually "do" in the studio? You're obviously not the tracking engineer or the mixing/mastering engineers ... so what are you doing in the studio? Step 1: Sit down in front of keyboard Step 2: Put sounds together Step 3: ??? Step 4: PROFIT!
In all honesty, I make the music that you hear. Whether it be through playing live instruments, or synthetic sounds (mostly synthetic for me).
Thanks for the response. I'm a musician myself, though have never (and likely will never) get to the point where a producer becomes involved, so thanks for the clarification. 1) Since you're making the sounds/instrumentation, does that have any effecgt on songwriting credits? If so, what sort of litmus test exists for this (kind of hinting at the screenwriters' type deal)? 2) How does the role of a producer with a real band (think Mumford & Sons) contrast with that of a producer in your position (sorry if i'm assuming too much, but it seems you're a pop/hiphop/electronic leaning producer)? In modern music, you can get a song writing credit for simply being in the studio and saying "yeah that sounds good". It's all really messed up. Unless I'm asked, I never really delve into song writing duties. There's no real "test" that I'm aware of. A producer for a band, someone like Mutt Lange, kind of gives the band direction and ideas for the entire record. Where as I make individual tracks.
RE: #4. If you had said I-V-VI-IV I would have /threaded the shit out of this thread. Cheers! Hahaha, I knew that was coming. I debated saying it just to see the reaction :P.
Because of your success is it a lot harder to make genuine friends? Do you have a set core of friends you only go out with? Do you have a hard time trusting people now ? I try to stay away from telling people about my career until they get to know me. Me being in school, it makes it a lot harder. Word travels fast. I do have a great core of friends who have been with me since the beginning, they definitely keep me grounded and humble.
In particular, I find it hard to trust new women (I'm currently single because of this...ladies ;) ) as soon as a lot of them find out what I do, who I've worked with, my bank account, etc etc, it's like the crazy gene kicks in and they see me as a piggy bank.
However, I have met a lot of new people that are really cool and don't just like me because of my success and what I do!
It's definitely the catch-22 of this job.
Do you work in LA? No sir! I'll be there in January, however!
Nice! you just visiting or moving ? Studio session actually! I'll never move to the States. I've had the opportunity, but, I enjoy where I live now :D.
Yea, the city gets to be a little to much sometimes. lets grab a BEER! If you don't rape and kill me, I'm down. Inbox me, I'll keep you posted.
Do you ever think about making an album of your own? If not, why? Funny you should ask.
I'm in the process of finishing a full-length instrumental album! I've always wanted to create an album of my own and have always been fond of concept albums! Unfortunately I wasn't born with pipes to sing.
What genre of music ? Would you start doing sets ? It's a blend of a lot of genres. Very piano and orchestra based. Although I produce mostly modern music, I'm in love with orchestras! I'll be conducting one in LA this January!
As for sets. Maybe. One of my best friends is a DJ and usually when I have a new record, he spins it to test the record out in a live setting. That's about as close as I think I'll go to live sets!
Sound kinda similar to stuff I'm working on (though I'm sure yours will sound a lot more professional!). Is it going to be widely released, or is it something hat you can hook us up with a Bandcamp link or something? I'm sure more people than just I would like to hear it. It's under wraps at the moment, but, since the overwhelming response I've gotten on this AMA, I may begin to leak some of it over reddit to get a response ;)
So, I Dj mainly Electro House, and want to learn how to produce. I have purchased some midi controllers and am having a hard time mapping them etc. I know nobody that has any experience with these things, and i'm having a hard time teaching myself. What would you recommend I should do? YOUTUBE. Youtube is a godsend for up and coming producers.
Also how hard is it to get into the industry? It took me 10 years to sign have my first contract offered to me. 6 for my first placement. It's about persistence. I'd say it's as hard as making the NFL. You need to pay your dues and put in the work. There's no real set formula.
Also i forgot to ask, Did you go to school for this, or did you come up from Youtube? I went to school/still going to school for business (working on my second business degree currently) I was however accepted to 3 music schools in the US but chose to decline there offers for a normal education. Never regretted the decision! A lot of it has come from working with other producers, yes Youtube, and trial and error!
2 chainz (tity boi) has put his time in though, he's been around since Luda came out with dtp. Say what you want about his music (he has put out some good songs: Link to www.youtube.com ), he's no overnight success. Have an up vote for facts.
Have you ever stepped on someones toes to get where you're at right now ? I've always tried to maintain some sort of professional and friendly attitude in my journey through this industry. Have I sent very strongly worded emails to people, yes. Have I intentionally thrown someone under the bus to advance my career, never. That's just not the type of person I am.
Do you usually finish a song before starting another one? How long does it take you to finish a track for an artist ? At any given time, I have about 15 songs on the go. Some are for artists. Some are for my catalogue.
And honestly depends. Sometimes I get on what I call "Highs" and I can churn out 2-3 songs a day (not full mastered mind you).
Mood is a big factor for me. I find it hard to create something that i'm not in the mood for at that time. Does this ever happen to you ? Sometimes I can put myself int he mindset of what I want to create even with the external circumstances. But 95% of what I create is based on my current mood. If I feel like getting crazy, I'll churn out a nice party record. If I'm feeling in the dumps, I'll churn out a sad slow piano piece. Mood does dictate a lot of what I do. But it doesn't 100% control what I create.
Dude i just want to let you know. I took my pre work out like 30 minuets ago thinking i was going to the gym. Now i'm bouncing off the walls. I drank my pre-workout before each exam this semester. I wrote a 12 page exam in 45 minutes. I know exactly what you're going through. Best of luck sleeping tonight my friend ;)
Any chance you could check out my demos? I was also wondering what you you thought of MPC's or maybe using software for drums... Thanks! Link to soundcloud.com. You have some solid compositions here, my friend! The recording is a bit shotty, but as for content, there's definitely emotion and talent here. Keep it up!
MPC's? I've used a few MPC's in my days. They're great! If I remember correctly, Just Blaze still uses an MPC for just about every record he does. I primarily use software or synthetic drums, if you will. If you have the technological know how, and musical knowledge, a good producer can make fake drums sound like they were played live!
Thanks Man! I recorded it using a really cheap amp and garage band so that probably explains the extreme Lo-Fi sound... What software would you recommend for synthetic drums? Mostly VST's of Midi drums the Virus has a lot of amazing drums that I love to use. Other than that. Big name producers won't tell you this, but, you can find every kind of drum you want floating around the internet. After that, it's all about how you process them!
DAW of choice? FL Studio for actually creating the the work. Pro Tools for mixing and mastering!
My perceptions of music producers is they are all guys in the 50's with graying ponytails, a coke habit and drive around in sports cars. how accurate is that? Well. Very inaccurate. If you see me walking down the street or on campus, unless I'm wearing my watch, you'd have no idea I make music. I look like your typical athletic college kid.
100 duck sized horses or 1 horse sized duck? 100 duck sized horses.
Hello. This has been hugely useful for me. I'm a sophomore in the Production Studies in Performing Arts, Audio Technology program, at Clemson University in South Carolina. I'd love to be pulled into the studio world or the live sound world. Other than work hard and network like crazy, what tips do you have for me to get into the industry? Interning is always a good way to get a real look at what the industry is like. Other than that. Depending on what you wanna do, you need to build a brand around yourself and develop your own following. Eventually labels will come knocking.
1)Favorite salad dressing. 2)Top 3 artists who make/made great producers? ex-dr dre and the like. 3)Have you listened to any music by Allen Stone? He seems to break up the "bland talentless" bunch nowadays with some serious soul! 1) Thousand Islands 2) a. Eminem b. J.Cole c. the OLD will.i.am 3)Can't say I have!
, congrats on the awesome job! Second, I've been an amateur producer for about a decade now. I'm ready to take it to the next level and become a professional engineer. What do you recommend? Upgrade your home studio.
Get some high quality studio monitors. High-end computer. Solid mixing board (although not needed with a good DAW). Start beginning to try and master every major DAW.
And something I like to do. Especially now a days. To keep your ear sharp. Listen to as much mainstream music as possible and pick out the faults in the mixing and mastering. It'll help tune your own ear when you're working!
