The G-Man Supports "iPod Culture" And Calls On Other Recording Artists To Do The Same
They call it iPod culture, personal music mixing, or DJ-for-a-day, and independent recording artist The G-Man is all for it. "There are clubs like Playlist in London where music lovers can bring in their iPods with a 15-minute mix of songs and hear them through a big sound system," G-Man notes. "I think it's a great way for people to hear new music and hope more artists support it."
Jonny Rocket of www.ipod-dj.com, which runs Playlist, says that iPod culture "encourages a sense of diversity in the music-loving audience." Rocket thinks that this new format will help "propel music sales beyond anything ever seen before. And we really like the idea of harnessing a personal technology such as the iPod in a way that transforms it into a collective, social activity such as Playlist," Rocket adds.
G-Man agrees, saying "iPod culture is so good at letting music tracks bounce from listener to listener around the world. The other neat thing is that people choose songs in a wild kind of 'shuffle' format, leading to great juxtapositions of songs. There hasn't been anything like it since the late Tom Donahue created underground radio in the sixties. If you look at Donahue's playlists or hear airchecks from KMPX in San Francisco, you see some extraordinary musical transitions, and that's what iPod culture is bringing back."
