the agents have really changed the game a lot. they're sharks and they are looking to take care of their client to the best of their abilities. It never used to be like this. We used to pick up artists from the airport in our regular cars/trucks. Nowadays, a dj's writer requires being picked up in some type of black escalade stretched limo. If you talk to most dj's, they don't give a shit... as long as they are picked up on and dropped off on time.

Sounds like the problem started with Global Gathering's error, but GE's management team really escalated it and made things worse. Oh well...

I've learned not to idolize these guys (and occasionally gals). Sure, they can be awesome as hell. Down to Earth. But at the end of the day, they all have huge egos and they all treat this like a business. Which just raises a mountain of skepticism in my opinion every time these performers do act down to Earth. Are they actually like that? Or are they just being fake for the sake of their image? And don't get me wrong, I understand why they just about all treat it like a business. But it's depressing, because they all started out small and treated this like a passion. But then a few too many fan boys (like the old me) feed their ego, and they just seem to get too big for their own good, and the fans end up being victims.

And I'm obviously speaking in generalities, so please don't list me how there's an amazing big name DJ who legitimately is still really cool. I'm sure they exist. But the majority of them are ruining it for those few exceptions.

But Armin!! He's so dreamy. And he "liked" my comment his ASOT fan page.

Hey, don't hate on Armin

If there's anyone to hate on, hate on Guetta, Aoki, or Afrojack.

I would have to disagree, based on my experience. There may be a few sellouts out there but especially in the world of trance, you're essentially dealing with computer geeks who make music and then suddenly have to tour the world and DJ to large crowds. The DJs I approach are oftentimes shy and not business-savvy, or just don't care about making money that much.

What happens is they recruit management teams to run their stuff because one person can't possibly do it all. And the management teams, as much as they might like the music, are business people. And so they DO treat it like a business.

So yes and maybe a VERY SMALL portion of them are divas, but most of the time all they seem to want to do is tour and share music, not worry about billing.

This move is so stupid and it shows how lame Gareth Emery has gotten.


GOD YOUR CLUELESS... well done. I applaud you believing your highly informed inside sources (reading Globals official response) Thank god the industry is full of people like yourself that can educate the rest of us by pretending to know whats up. Thank you!! Great job!
