I don’t know anything about nor care about Lorde or her music, but she’s pretty much dead-on here. The only thing I disagree with is regarding Beyonce, but whatever. She’s speaking truths that people need to hear, and won’t listen to unless they come from somebody famous.
So in other words SFX stands for EVERYTHING I don’t want happening to scenes I like. Increased sponsorship, increased attendance (call me a hipster but The Big Up is way better than Camp Bisco), increased homogeny. Every event is going to have all the same artists and they’re only going to book massively popular DJs they know will sell tickets. Beatport was already a bad place to buy music. They’ve been slowly working up to this for a while, and it was obvious Beatport was supporting something shady. Please don’t support these guys!
