Coone: “If you’re not in it for the love of the music, would you please f*ck off”
Oh man, talk about some next level #realtalk from Hardstyle beast mode producer and DJ Coone. He’s been in the game for a long time now.
Back in 2007/2008, he created “Words From The Gang” talking about how he first heard electronic music how he got hooked. But he takes it a step further and criticizes the electronic music and club scene, specifically all the DJ’s in it for the fame, fortune, and sex, rather than the music. Sound familiar?
Now, history is literally repeating itself. Fast forward to 2014 as he resurrects the song with a 2014 remix because the message, is super important now as we’re breaking into 2015 where EDM is on a full fledged takeover. Best part? He did all this over a beautiful f*cking melody.
“I remember the day I first heard electronic music. I knew back then this illegal computer sound was gonna be my call. My heart got hooked on 4 by 4 beats, when house took his journey with Jack Chicago and Acid House.
Now my heart is hooked forever. I don’t care if it’s french-tek, hardstyle, hardcore, old school or jump. I don’t understand people who are satisfied with ordinary pop music, they just listen to whatever radio stations decide they should like. Followed by an overkill of ring tone commercials meant for kids… And my god, they like it!
Some people even think that house clubs are for weirdos only. Maybe they’re right, maybe we are weird. Maybe this music is weird and maybe the clubs are overrated. But we’re in this together.
If you’re in the scene, being a DJ seems like a natural path to follow. And back in the days DJ’s were weird people who liked music in a weird way. Back then you would have to be a nerd to become a DJ. Nowadays everybody wants to be a DJ, nowadays everybody wants to be that nerd.
It sickens me, I hate those smart asses who think DJ is an easy way to get laid… Well… get a life. If you’re not in it for the love of the music, would you please fuck off!”
