DJ ANAS (Official)
DJ ANAS aka B747 - Italian Hardcore/Techno DJ & producer with Moroccan roots. The journey began in 1992-1993 with the first wave of "Techno Acida" in Italy (Acid Techno) and later with the establishment of the Hardcore/Gabber sound at the club "Discoteca Number One" where he spent most of his years. Unlike most guys with his same ethnic background he had zero interest in Rap and Middle Eastern Music, and that alone alienated him completely from all communities and circles that had to do with with his origins. Many people wrongly applied the "urban" stereotype onto him, when in reality he was interested in abstract music and the sounds of the machines. Not only was he integrating well in the western world, but he was already looking forwards to new things to come, after getting bored with the Italo-disco and Euro-dance. Anas has been listening to western and synth-pop music since his childhood, and then when things started to happen in the early 90's he went straight to the far end of the extreme and dark sound of Techno and fell in love with Hardcore music...until it made sense.
Like everything else in the world. you put a price tag on something and it's a only matter of time before it gets corrupted. And while the vast majority run like rats on dope, in the pursuit of fame and money, only a very few have the courage to give up and dare not participate with the mass madness, in sign of protests, to make a point! It is what makes the difference between sellouts and real Hardcore people. Hardcore is about dedication, it's not just the sound of a distorted 909. Hardcore is a way of life, it means relentlessly obsessing about your ideas, no matter if that is going to take 1, 10 or even 20 years. It means not giving a flying fuck about others, not seeking their approval in the first place. Hardcore people don't conform, they don't follow, they don't try to please anyone, especially the "authority".
So many do the talk, but when it comes to the facts...how many people do that in real life?
If you are strong enough and well stubborn to actually do that, then you can call yourself Hardcore. But if you are just making cheesy tunes on a beat, wearing a stupid mask, trying to please key people in the industry, following commercial and boring trends, then you are simply selling bread. You are not influencing others, not imposing your ideas nor even proposing them, thus you are a total conformist who prefers to make safe transactions on a marketplace, by selling what people ALREADY KNOW.
That is a fear-based behavior, and it is what kills progress!
