Coyu, Suara label chief, producer, DJ, philanthropist and now clothing line boss, has taken to his Facebook page to lament on the state of releases in today’s underground dance music scene.
The reason? Coyu feels that unless a large name is attached to a track, the release isn’t getting purchased despite amazing reception when played live in front of packed dance floors.
“Big labels don’t care about people like you,” he states, explaining how large imprints do not take the time to listen to demos from unknown producers, subsequently failing to give great tracks the release they deserve. He thengoes on to take the conversation full circle, “But then one day, maybe today, you have a gig later at night, you go to Beatport because you wanna buy some new tracks to blow up the dancefloor and then… You only buy music from big names. You don’t care about newcomers or non well-know profiles because you only trust on those names you have been listening for years releasing on big labels and those names which tracks everybody play because they are hype, they are hot, they are cool. And then you realize you don’t support people like you.”
