Trying to understand reality

Let’s face a current problem in the music industry: Musicians don’t make enough money. Or do they? And, do they even have to? A pretty normal, and contradicting, view coming from striving musicians is one where art is the most important thing to them and because of that they should be paid to ma […]

How does Youtube look without comments?

Just like it usually does, but without the comments! But what’s interesting is that by turning off the comments on Youtube (which I did with this Chrome addon) the world pre-2000 comes back, where you can get away with saying whatever you want just because you have a media channel, because the vie […]

What is really timeless? ft. Kanye West’s tweets

Remember the 80s/90s/00s/10s? We were/looked/said so stupid! That’s because the “now” becomes the past after a while, and that shit (time) is scary. I don’t want that, I want to be timeless! And stop viewing the past as older times and start treating it like it’s a couple of events de-atta […]

Creating things that don’t exist yet – ft. Josef Fares’ attitude

I played the game “It Takes Two” with my friend, and realized that: This game is unlike all other games. So now you may wonder, did Josef Fares, the creator of the game, read any books on how to create games before making It Takes Two? No! ? “Well, I never read books on how to design a game. I […]

AI and sampling end the “quality vs quantity” discussion for good

Remember when Daniel Ek (king of Spotify) said that musicians need to make more songs than they currently do to survive in the music business? I’m NOT interested in that statement, but I’m interested in how people reacted to it. They reacted like it’s impossible to make more stuff than they cu […]

Launching my site in Japanese because of Japanese music

You can now read kbrecordzz in Japanese! https://kbrecordzzjp.wordpress.com I’ve written a lot about Japanese music on kbrecordzz.com, like Mami Yamase, SCANDAL (again), Seiko Oomori (again, again), Jun Togawa & Yapoos (again, again, again, again & again (the flagship of this site)), Wink, Zoomgal […]

$ATSUKI gives hope to an upside-down world

I listened to $ATSUKI’s song “이랴이랴!”/“War” (ft. Lil Cherry) and I just felt that no one is themselves as much as $ATSUKI on this song. Speaking on that, when was the last time you were yourself? I made a remix of the song’s two version because I got such good energy from it: […]

The second wave of indie creation

Half a year ago I talked about how sampling is cool and speeds up creative work, while AI is also cool and can speed up non-creative work, and that these together lets you make cooler art faster which is a win-win that eliminates all "quality vs quantity" concerns inside your artist brain. Good art […]

Dancing is all about feeling the vibe

Good dancing isn't when you do the correct moves, it's when people can see that you care about what you're doing. That's why "But i can't dance" is a meaningless excuse because the only thing you need is all the confidence in the world, then whatever you do will look good. You're not bad at dancing, […]

Where does Pharrell's confidence come from?

Where does Pharrell Williams find the motivation to make songs sounding like small boxes and soft balls bouncing on them? (That's how they sound!!) Maybe he just has uniquely large reserves of confidence. The kind of confidence that seems like it comes from nowhere. Some day, some random person from […]
