POZ Special: The Industry With Jesse Cannon

by Zack Zarrillo - Jun 24, 2012

This is a snarky one, folks. Jesse Cannon, the man behind Cannon Found Soundation Recording Studios (Man Overboard, The Menzingers, Transit, Lifetime) and Musformation, is back for a brand new Industry feature in our ongoing series. In this week’s feature, Jesse hits the nail on the head on Emily White, deadmau5, Bandcamp, royalties, and much more. Read up on all of it below!

Emily White, Oh Emily White…The NPR intern that launched one million musician’s tears and a thousand Tumblr posts ranting about the music business. If you were lucky enough to be spending your summer outside having fun, graduating instead of living my life in a windowless room reading blogs, you may have missed that an NPR intern penned an article where she admitted she has barely ever bought music and has illegally downloaded her whole life. This made many old people sad in the music business who struggle to understand the youngins. The article is a great read and the debate it sparked is fun, but trust me you don’t want to read the comments section for too long if you value not hearing old men waving their cane for hours on end about how the kids of today with their Spotifies are going to ruin the world. Just like dubbing cassetes was 30 years ago, we saw how that one worked out Grandpa.

Remember the big, fat, WEIRD guy Kim Dotcom who looked like a super hero’s nemesis come to life that ran MegaUpload.com? He’s baaaaacccckkk. This time he wants to launch a streaming music service (with the pornotastic named MEGABOX), and despite the fact that the police seized all his money he somehow has gotten this service off the ground? Well, to be honest we don’t know if it will ever reach the public, but the service does sound kinda cool It enables artists to sell or give away their own music and keep 90% of the profits. While this all sounds cool, can you really trust this guy?

SUCKERS!?!?!? Or are you? That’s right Deadmau5 has admitted he is basically just hitting play on his live sets. Meaning that every guitar wielding asshole who complains that electronic music shows are boring and not real performances are sadly a little right for once in their cranky lives. The mouse posted a blog where he gave really interesting reasons and also hit on a point we all have known for a long time - these shows are about the drugs, vibe, visuals and energy way more than they are about any performance. Just remember his BFF is Skrillex and start wiping the tears out of your eyes that when he’s whipping his hair back and forth like Willow Smith with a hair cut only a blind mother can love, he can do so cause it’s just one button being pushed at the start of the set. 

Remember the days when MySpace was cool and you used to spend all day flat ironing your hair and discovering cool new bands? They are back, but hopefully you don’t go back to looking like a silly budget transexual and taking pictures in the mirror again like you did in those days. Bandcamp has launched a really cool tool that will now help you discover whatever you want on their platformThis can help you discover other cool bands from the genres you like or just cool vinyl packages to buy where the band members sign the record on their own blood and other stuff that is way too hardcore for anyone reading this site. Check it the hell out.
