Friday nights party (which we featured alongside others) was a good example of what i am gonna write about here. I have this website and all i/we do and do gladly is to do uplifting things because we like it, and not just for the sake of it – so we don’t book deejays/bands unless it really makes sense to our cause or we are close with someone. So we gladly support good things, music, cool locations, acts that we “feel” good about – and that is the keyword.
As of lately we have supported a lot of things that we didn’t feel too “YUM YUM” about and i can name them right here: “One is top friend in munich which headed into a direction where we didn’t even feel to good about it, and we need to change that or else i do not like to go there myself. That feeling of family and fun needs to be there.. which it has definitely lost. I am having a hard time featuring something on this site that doesn’t have that feeling of family and warmth, simply a good feeling. I have never been doing things just to be in a certain crowd. I Rather go create my own reality… You know that. A lot of things have to change here before i can label it part of what this website and me/we are about. Second is Klassentreffen, which is a party we feature bc it hosts nice acts, but has definitely up until now nothing to do with chromemusic besides friends running it. So that has to change as well – and it will with Chiddy Bang playing there in 2 weeks (and i consider X the producer/rapper of Chiddy to be a really cool dude). So thats of to a great start. AAaand if these things don’t change – well we have other things to do.
Change always starts with oneself and therefore i am gonna be hell more picky with what chromemusic as a website supports, as of right now!
Back to Friday nights party which was a Co-op between Die Registatur aka buddy Brane, Team from hell (superpaper, Horses, cars & starts ec), Crux – which is run by two of our djs anyways, and of course me/us as the website supporting it. The whole party was done, more as an accidental thing, after 3 locations have been cancelled. So next time if we have to do another short notice i will rather cancel it before trying to push it through just to do anyone a favour.
And a purely electronic party or a regular hiphop, or mashup party or whatever, has nothing to do with us – the versatiliy needs to be there (and the location as well) – so i am not blaming the guys playing – at all – its more the entire surrounding and way it was put up. chromemusic can support a House night if it fits the environment, a hiphp party (again) if it fits int hat surrounding, no problemo – but not if there is no fun going on and the vibes are all big room and cool clubland like. Fuck that! All the guys involved moved heaven and hell to get this thing of the ground within 3 days.. and worked their ass of for a mediocre party??? i mean it was packed and all that but the vibes were more like the last black eyed peas cd than anything else….Well thats not what we are about.. and if i catch me asking myself what i am doing there (and i did, about a hundred times last friday) – well that does show me -> that whole thing had NADA to do with us. And i cant support that! even retrospectively!
And all the guys involved know their way around (come on Team from Hell, Registratur, Crux these kids are pros) and so a not satisfying night was gnawing at my soul. Change starts right here right now! Fuck that! I won’t even call it change – That BS stops right here – right NOW!
So from now on, if its labeld chromemusic, at least one of these guys has to play there: Schowi, Max Mausser, Schu, Notfx, Dan Gerous, Tand Williams, Palina, Q and me —- and we know what to do.
Feel free to drop a comment.
