Let’s destroy the stereotype that DJs/EDM producers “aren’t real musicians” and “aren’t smart” and “didn’t do anything with their lives”
(it’s not exactly super common but it exists)
First off, they ARE real musicians and probably have a heck of a lot more talent then the people saying that they aren’t do. (you go try fl studio, it’s like learning 70 different instruments at once. I dare you.)
Second, um, what are you freaking talking about, they’re not smart? Madeon does a TON of engineering for his shows, Porter Robinson puts so much insight into certain topics, and Mr. Fijiwiji IS GOING TO COLLEGE FOR FREAKING NEUROSCIENCE, and those are just the ones i’ve heard about. If that’s not smart I don’t know what is.
Finally, yeah they did do something with their lives, and not only that, at a young age. Some are making MILLIONS. Not to mention Skrillex creating his own record label and he’s CURRENTLY only 28. And they followed their dreams, and are so creative in so many ways. Plus, some are actually making a difference and helping people?? Like Zedd helping Kesha with the crazy thing that happened a while ago??? He helped (and probably still is) her get out of that situation she couldn’t escape.
DJs/EDM are real people. Smart people. Courageous people. Creative people. Successful people. They are so much more than you think they are.
What if, when Shigeru (Rin’s dad) was building the capsule for his daughter, another family found out about his technology and begged him to save their 8-year-old son, to which (after much pleading) he agreed?
What if Shigeru’s plan was to have them meet someday, after Rin received his letter to her?
What if that day comes, and Rin meets him?
Him, being the one and only Porter Robinson.
Which explains why both Worlds and Shelter are about two people: (in Worlds’s case) a boy and a lonely girl.
Shelter was just… The best. I’m still not over it, and all the jumping and singing and dancing destroyed me, both mentally and physically. (No lie. My muscles are literally aching.) But I loved it, so, so much, and it was the perfect first electronic music concert ever.
The visuals were amazing and beautiful, and I could barely look away. The music was perfect, an awesome blend of Porter and Hugo, and they were amazing too. I was so close. Maybe 20 feet away. Everything was insane and beautiful and I couldn’t stop singing and dancing (so sorry about my shaky hands, haaa). I destroyed my voice. But it was worth it. It was all worth it- even though I didn’t meet Hugo and Porter- because I saw them, right in front me. My two favorite people, right in front of me, for the first time. No computer screen and thousands of miles between us. It blew my mind, I still am having trouble comprehending. And I don’t think I’ll ever forget it, never in a million years.
