When we play music for others we experience reading the emotion of the crowd and then adjusting our music to meet their mood and then elevate it.
Even though we're interacting with hundreds or maybe thousands, while a therapist is working with just one person at a time, the same principal applies: meet the client where they are, then help them to get somewhere better.
Some things that have been said about My therapist
"You're so good you broke me ears" - Elliot (who now suffers from superior canal dehiscence syndrome. CT Scan available upon request)
"You're mixing's scaring me" - Ricardo, some guy at a party
"Are you the best DJ in the world?" - random girls comments after various gigs
"I really cringed when they said they were having a DJ but I love it, it's great music" - an exhibitor at a gallery opening party
A bit about me.
A short while back, I admittedly visited DJ Yoda in the DJ booth to find out about what track he was playing a few too many times. Only to be welcomed with “Why don’t you go and get your own f**king tunes!”
With this in mind I started building a deep vault of funk, soul, hip-hop, reggae, breaks and drum ‘n’ bass to provide all the best people with all the best music that I could find.
My day job is a filmmaker and editor
I made this video for Hayz & Boogie Boutique's 'Ghetto Rat'
& this fairly controversial video for Loo & Placido's 'Reggae Rigby'
I directed this music video for Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo
& this very funny video for Diversion Tactics 'Ladies Man'
& Lewis Parker 'Mr Parker's Siesta'
I directed this documentary featuring Simon Munnery and Harry Enfield called 'The Tunnel'
Early on in the film Wilson says Joy Division were onstage because “they had no fucking choice”. It’s a typically pretentious statement, but it does illustrate the point that the band went far beyond the idea of merely providing entertainment for people. Meanwhile, evidence of Curtis’s channelling of existential literature (Gogol, Kafka, Ballard, Dostoevsky, Burroughs) through his lyrics provides ballast to another Wilson statement that Joy Division were the first band to take the energy of punk’s “Fuck you!” and use it to express the more complex emotions of “I’m fucked!”.
A-I-D-A. Attention, interest, decision, action. Attention -- do I have your attention? Interest -- are you interested? I know you are because it's fuck or walk. You close or you hit the bricks! Decision -- have you made your decision for Christ?!! And action. A-I-D-A; get out there!!
