Neki od najpoznatijih svjetskih DJ-eva traže pomoć za svoje tour managere što je naišlo na kritiku javnosti

Zamjera im se što traže pomoć od publike, umjesto da im sami novčano pomognu

Neki od najpoznatijih svjetskih DJ-eva traže pomoć za svoje tour managere što je naišlo na kritiku javnosti

Sasvim je jasno da je zbog pandemije koronavirusa ugrožena cijela glazbena industrija - bez posla nisu ostali samo artisti, tu je čitav niz ljudi koji rade u glazbenoj industriji - promotori, tour manageri, agenti, tehničke ekipe i mnogi drugi koji trenutno nemaju mogućnost rada. To je ponukalo skupinu tour managera - i to nekih od najpoznatijih DJ-eva - da se organiziraju i predstave projekt “Tour Managers Not Touring (TNT) - The Sofa Sessions”.

Njihova je ideja bila da od kraja travnja pa sljedećih nekoliko tjedana objavljuju seriju ekskluzivnih mikseva DJ-eva s kojima rade. Tour manageri, a to su, redom: Adri Sense (Nicole Moudaber), Antonio Meridiano (Hito), Bogdan Pakito (Paco Osuna), Dingo (Dubfire), Fusko (Joseph Capriati), Gabriel Torres (The Martinez Brothers), Ian Hussey (Carl Cox), J. Fonseca (Carnage), Paolo Francesco (Alan Fitzpatrick) i Zak (Seth Troxler), na taj će način će dobiti pomoć jer fanovi mogu donirati najmanje 5 eura.

Svi uključeni artisti podržali su projekt, a većina, ako ne i svi, iskoristili su svoje društvene mreže kako bi potaknuli svoje fanove da uplate donacije. Niže je primjer kako je to napravio Carl Cox.

No, taj njihov potez naišao je na priličnu kritiku među njihovim fanovima pa i kolegama koji su propitkivali tu odluku da im trebaju donacije s ozbirom koliko inače zarađuju a i zbog činjenice da su većinom na plaći DJ-eva koji bih, u tom slučaju, trebali osigurati tijekom ove krize. Producent i DJ John Askew otišao je toliko daleko da je objavio i video o tome, podijelivši svoje mišljenje o tome što on smatra skandalom.

THIS. IS. AN. UTTER. SCANDAL. Out of desperation for income in these trying times the tour managers of some of worlds richest DJs launch a mix series to try and raise donations from the public to help keep themselves afloat while out of work. And then the millionaires they work for have the audacity to beg and plead to the general public to get involved / donate give money I’m guessing so that they don’t have to themselves!!!??. What the actual fuck???????? So the DJs in question are not covering the basic costs of the loyal warriors that baby sit them 24/7 during normal touring periods????? And not only that but they’re then asking you - the out of work / broke / skint general public to put your hand in your pocket to help cover these costs - so they don’t have to??????? Am I loosing my mind here or did what I just watched actually happen? I’m truly lost for words, shocked and a little sad. Shame on the managers who advised these DJs that this was a good idea. Some of these DJs were heroes to me but now any / all respect I had has been lost. If you are one of the tour managers who work for the DJs in this video I feel deeply deeply sorry for you. You’re at their side wiping their ass every second of every day while on tour and now they won’t repay the favour by helping you with a few chunks of change from their VAST wealth????? It’s as scandalous as Victoria Beckham trying to furlough all her staff so that the tax payer could cover their costs. Luckily though - she saw sense and reversed the request when public outrage subtly reminded her she’s a fucking millionaire a hundred times over so can cover those costs out of the coins in her solid gold handbag. This lock down brings out good in some but horrors in others. If you’re going to donate to anything - donate to the NHS or your own country’s front line medical services.

Za sad se jedino Seth Troxler oglasio na tu temu uz objašnjenje da se on financijski pobrinuo za svog tour managera a da je mix donirao jer je smatrao da je to ispravan potez.
