THAT’S WHY YOU GO OUT TO HEAR A DJ… TO HEAR MUSIC YOU DON’T KNOW, AND IT’S THEIR JOB TO GO OUT AND BUY RECORDS THAT PEOPLE DON’T KNOW. THAT’S ALWAYS BEEN THE CONCEPT OF THE DJ - TO EXPOSE PEOPLE TO MUSIC THAT THEY WOULDN’T OTHERWISE HAVE A CHANCE TO HEAR.


IN THIS AGE OF ONLINE DISCUSSION AND PEOPLE REACHING FOR THEIR 15 MINUTES OF FAME I OFTEN LOOK AT YOU-TUBE COMMENTS AND DESPAIR. THE IGNORANCE, THE CONSTANT ARGUING AND GENERAL NEGATIVE OUTLOOK IS LIKE A VERBAL CAR CRASH YOU CAN’T LOOK AWAY FROM. I RECENTLY THOUGHT ABOUT HOW I COULD TRY AND REINTERPRET THE YOU-TUBE COMMENTS SECTION INTO SOMETHING INTERESTING AND POSITIVE. I FOUND THAT MUSIC, OR IN THIS CASE, CLUB MUSIC, WAS AN SECTION OF YOU-TUBE THAT GENERALLY ENCOURAGED PEOPLE TO FEEDBACK IN A MUCH MORE PASSIONATE AND REMINISCENT WAYS. POURING OVER HUNDREDS OF YOU-TUBE VIDEOS FROM VARIOUS DJ’S AND PRODUCERS I CAME ACROSS A NUMBER OF COMMENTS THAT DESCRIBED NOSTALGIC EXPERIENCES PEOPLE HAD EITHER IN CLUBS OR PARTIES AND HOW THAT PARTICULAR SONG MADE THEM FEEL AT THE TIME.

SOME OF THE COMMENTS WERE QUITE SHORT AND SWEET AND OTHERS DELVED DEEPER INTO THE MIND OF THE COMMENTER IN THAT MOMENT ON THE DANCE FLOOR. FROM A DESIGN POINT OF VIEW THESE COMMENTS WERE A PERFECT STARTING POINT AS THE CONTENT GENERATED ITSELF. FROM THERE I TOOK SEVERAL OF THE COMMENTS I FOUND AND LISTENED TO EACH TRACK THEY WERE ATTACHED TO AND CREATED THE FOLLOWING 6 POSTERS WITH THE COMMENTS ACTING AS THE TYPOGRAPHY AND THE TRACK INFORMING THE DESIGN. EACH COMMENT CREATES A NICE SNAP SHOT OF THE COMMENTER GETTING LOST IN THAT PARTICULAR SONG PLAYED BY A PARTICULAR PERSON AT A PARTICULAR TIME IN THEIR LIFE. SOME OF THE COMMENTS WERE FOLLOWED BY REPLIES OF DISCUSSION, OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAD ALSO BEEN THERE AT THAT TIME, WITH THAT DJ, ENJOYING THAT TRACK. STRANGERS SHARING STORIES ONLINE, THAT’S THE POWER OF THE INTERNET IN A POSITIVE LIGHT.
