No, the dance floor wants more of the same, again and again and again. Actually I could do much better.
So I just play it like I always did, the good old sound people love some much. The imitators. It all sounds the same!
The first big wave of imitators I remember was triggered by Neelix. Just think about all those sub-genres we have today: Some time ago I tried to carefully infuse my sets with new sound, made them a bit more technoish and added some longer Breakbeat parts.
However, this knowledge is again and again in conflict with my artistic ambitions as a creative.
Supply and demand: Actually it makes me really angry sometimes. He is definitely not an imitator.
On the contrary, he invented a cool new sound, and people really loved it. If you ask a business guy, he knows exactly how they interact with each other. But as a creative I sometimes feel like a marathon runner who is running into a cheering crowd after only a few kilometers, and just like that the race is over. The sound I play on these occasions: Imagine a restaurant that has an ambitious chef who gains a lot of experience over the years and comes up with some really good recipes — but all the customers ask for is that one and only dish that was on the menu on the day of the opening.
I perform live pretty much every weekend, pretty much everywhere. The demand of the scene makes it possible…. The dance floor loved it, even though it sounded as if Neelix would perform a 7-hour live set.BLOOPERS: How German Sounds Compared To Other Languages -- CopyCatChannel
