What are you Promoting here Lee Foss? This ain't House Music...

 

It is very rarely, even fair to say ever that MEOKO blogs about these EDM popstars however people are furious over Lee Foss's tactics which saw him having his gig cancelled July 4th rooftop BBQ at Monkey Loft by the promoters which promote live streams of electronic music in California. This came off the  backlash of a flyer which can only be described as vile-  the flyer indicate a woman performing oral sex with her head coverd up - tasteless to say the least, this is not what the music industry stands for, this is NOT the msg we want to put out.  Infact Lee Foss, what exactly are you promoting here? It certainly doesnt belong in the electronic music industry. 

He will not play our event quoted the promoter in a earlier FB post,  I will lose thousands of dollars which I've already paid, but I cannot work with a guy who objectifies women much less as a form of self-promo. Disgusting" 

"Such gross behaviour. If this was sport, he and his management would be suspended without pay and have to go through counselling / rehabilitation before he could return, meaning there was a chance they could learn from the experience rather than being named and shamed, without any constructive resolution. Imagine if we had some sort of structure of accountability within our industry." Clare Dickins (PR Professional)

x8 Tracks of the Summer by Bruno Curtis (Round Up)

 

bruno summer2

When we caught up with Round UP head honcho Bruno Curtis back in February, it was clear that him and the Agency were looking at a very hot summer. Now, things are in full swing, with the Round UP - Open Air at OFFweek on the 13th of June just around the corner. For the occasion, Bruno and the Round UP crew have curated an impressive all-star lineup with just the right amount of variation. Dub maestro Andrey Pushkarev and scene veteran Thomas Melchoir will join the rising Dutch Spokenn duo (comprising the accomplished Ferro and Reiss) as headliners. Support has been left in talented hands: Round UP’s own ANBC the collaborative project between Bruno Curtis and Alex Neival), in addition to Augustin Alvarez and Dafoe. Given Round UP’s exceptional reputation when it comes to their multi-dimensional artistic direction, Cote’s visuals should certainly complete the audio-visual experience. Ahead of the OFFweek open air, and in between all his other endeavours, we found time to catch up with Bruno Curtis, who chose 8 tracks of the summer to share with you. Here they are and to listen, simply click the name of the track.

The first edition of this new event will bring underground house and techno to such as wide spectrum and level to the Albanian lands for the first time. The location chosen for the festival is by the seaside, on the stunning Mediterranean beauty that is the Albanian coastline; dense with breath taking landscapes which combine maritime pine forests and a mountain background with the coastline view. The festival will have three stages hosting 24 hours of music every day, so bring your sunglasses: sunrise and sunset parties are set to be one of the highlights of this three day stunning party. However the festival will not be focused solely on partying. You will be able to experience watersports, sun bathing, local cuisine and cultural trips and much more.
