Torontos' Underrated Techno Producers

I think toronto has alot of under rated producers!

What's with this city and not being able to make enough techno to fill the market with our talents?

With everyone we know there has to be atleast 20 decent producers in toronto who make music. But only a few ppl who have actually had releases out by themselves or other labels......

what's with that? can we have a techno revival? get some of our ppl out there doing good on a larger level?

Save your pennies, start a label or net label and then PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE

Half you guys are underrated because you are missing the barnum & bailey part of your act.

Anyone who tells me that an artist shouldn't have to promote themselves, the art should speak for itself is either

A. A very poor artist ($$)
B. A very poor artist.

the general room did.... then the Wabi 5 year brought me back. :)

now that i've got my life settled down, I feel like I can actually get back to doing what I love, and try and get away from doing the things I don't.

fer me... I'd hate to live my life regretting the lucky breaks I "could've" had.

First off, I want to give a shout to all who have supported my productions from day one. Most of you have some promos and other who don't, i'll be glad to get you a CD.

Producers here in Toronto I find, and I totally may get shot for this, seem to take a real introverted approach when it comes to marketing themselves. From discussions I've had, I've come to the conclusion that they think that the same rules should not apply to them as they do DJ's, with regards to marketing and promotion. I can't disagree more. Get in people's faces! Send out productions!

Circ early to late 90's, producers were regarded as the "pinnacle" in the whole DJ culture circuit. With the advent of software and the ease of starting home laptop based studios, DJ's have taken control of their own work, without the need of producers who own gear. In essence, putting the sole promotion of their material on a producers shoulders. Bottom line. Producers now need to work harder to get out there.

Mind you, the work I've done with Greg has helped my career enourmously. Techno fans all over hear my shit now, and the use of Final Scratch launches that even further. Charting in Europe, Spain and NA puts more faith in my beleif that producers can still make their mark.

Even though I've been producing and releasing material since 93 (started with mail order cassettes, doing live PA's at Pizza Pino's in Ajax...funny story), i still need to push, prod and sometimes use brute force to get on bills.

A great succuss story producer has always been Jake Fairley. Stayed true to his sound, and reached great hights worldwide

Hope to see you all out this Friday for Mono!

re: Rian Torrance

what releases does he have? I love matt and mark thibadeau's work (and have alot of their releases), so i'm assuming that talent runs in the family :)

I think more people would take the DIY route if it wasn't so damn expensive. Putting out your own records takes A LOT of money. If you don't have a good distributor, it also takes a lot of time and effort, which can sometimes be too much for someone who also goes to school or works full time.

I've just started work on two labels, but they'll probably be CD/mp3 labels for at least the first year. I just can't justify dropping several thousand dollars to put out a record right now. I have the utmost respect for independent labels slogging it out right now, especially considering the state of the electronic music industry (labels folding every week, etc).

Vergel and I have some stuff in the works and we are taking it slow to make it last this time round. It is alot of work to get things up and going as I have seen some of what it takes through people who are doing labels and such. If its good it should last the test of time and I believe the new stuff we are doing shows this. I am not trying to be the end all be all of music but rather come across solid all the time.

BTW Vergels new tracks are tight.

:D
