MY OWN CUSTOM GENRE / STYLE

yup!

and i’m calling it:

KONTAKT SPORTS

KONTAKT because i’m a producer that uses Native Instruments –

SPORTS because music is a GAME; the game of LIFE – music is LIFE >>> and sports because my STYLE is hard-hitting, no-holds-barred, and in-your-FACE.

  1. the name could be anything, and the result is the same.

    fyle has been making the most vital and important music from the future.
    it cuts through any level. the music is different from anything else out there.
    takes people straight to the opposite of limbic in their minds, literally fight or flight…

    if i could invest money in your kickstarter, i would give a fukcing lot.

    i already want to license your music for a video series…

    kontact sports will need a team.

    all the things about music biz that you hate…

    more irony

    • “the music is different from anything else out there”

      very true.

      but being different isn’t always a good thing, depending on how you look at it.

      it’s a form of self-marginalization, which goes against all established norms in the music business.

      but i don’t give a fukc about 9 out of 10 things that most artists fight over.

      “takes people straight to the opposite of limbic in their minds, literally fight or flight…”

      which is true, too.

      but that’s not the type of music that qualifies as ‘TOP 40’.

      i won’t be getting any A.M.A. or BILLBOARD awards anytime soon. but again, FUKC ALL THAT.

      i ain’t Hollywood. never have been – never will be.

  2. edit:

    probably a bad idea for me to give advice.
    i don’t have any clue what direction you want to take your music,
    if any.

    i only have my wish that by 2020, fyle formatz is a household name.
    would that be success or failure>>>?

    • naw.

      FyLe ForMatz can NEVER be a ‘household’ name.

      ever.

      that would put me in the same lane as Macklemore – which to me would be a mutiny.

      • some cats, like banksy, got a worldwide buzz but still do it their way. i think there must be a way to reach the ears of everyone, but still remain an enigma. that is the dream of v for vendetta or that type of picture.

        not out in the open like mack, more as a hidden sentinel or guard of the raw beats technology.
        invisible hero…

      • “not out in the open like mack, more as a hidden sentinel or guard of the raw beats technology.
        invisible hero…”

        yeah…somebody has to keep this shit interesting.

        somebody gotta be the Batman of this shit – – – too many Jokers.

    • yeah, it’s fresh – but cliche designations are corny – equally as corny as when rappers say, “this is a MOVEMENT”

  3. “i don’t have any clue what direction you want to take your music”

    i gotta stay underground, man.

    that’s #1.

    i’m prolly one of the most underground musical entities out here.

    left-field / acquired taste is my lane.

    and i’m still working on my sound-quality / mixes; which i expect to be improving very, very soon.

    the furthest i would go is licensing.

    but i’ll tell you this:

    i believe that the industry is corny AND 85% of fans are corny.

    i don’t have any inclination or desire to rub elbows with either.

  4. “left-field / acquired taste is my lane.”

    an artist only has freedom if they are on the outside of the scene or game or industry. i feel simultaneously sorry for mix having to live with baby got back forever, and amused by him for his repeated corny things he has done since becoming the spotlight of seattle hip-hop. fa-la-la-lottery is a travesty of the worst kind. pain-inducing. torturous. truly awful.

    mix is in a prison of his own making. a prison of bubble-butts.
    mack is trying to break out of the value village jail. it will be a sign of his ability as an artist if he can beat it.

    once you become famous, people want you to be everything for them. it is a bottomless pit. but that doesn’t stop people from trying all the time. fame has its benefits too…

    being anonymous is totally freeing. no-one has expectations of you. there are no pressures to appease certain fan groups or advertisers.

    you are lucky…

    • “mix is in a prison of his own making. a prison of bubble-butts.
      mack is trying to break out of the value village jail.”

      EXCELLENT observations!

      and i agree completely.

      it’s TOO EASY for artists to paint themselves into a corner.

      the difference with Macklemore is that he’s White, so the standards are doubled – in other words, he’ll have a MUCH easier time making the ‘transition’ into the next ‘phase’ / trend / style…way more leniency when you’re a POP-STAR doubling as a HIP-HOP star.

      i’ve seen MANY artists paint themselves into corners over the years.

      some from Seattle, and many not from Seattle.

    • “being anonymous is totally freeing. no-one has expectations of you. there are no pressures to appease certain fan groups or advertisers.”

      right.

      but “ANONYMOUS” is interchangeable with the term “NO-NAME”, too…so it’s a catch-22.

    • “fa-la-la-lottery is a travesty of the worst kind. pain-inducing. torturous. truly awful.”

      right.

      just about the only cats that escaped from the corner that most artists paint themselves into was OUTKAST.

      after them, Hip-Hop has slowly devolved back into primates.

  5. “an artist only has freedom if they are on the outside of the scene or game or industry”

    100% correct, again.

    Kool Keith comes to mind.

    he can go in any direction that he chooses at a moments notice; and the people will still love him regardless.

    but like you said; only at the price of not glitz and glamour.
