    Seth Troxler

    Great article on him... although you could probably replace his name with a hundred others and it would read the same...

    Seth Troxler: Casual twists

    What's life like as one of the planet's most popular DJs? RA's Will Lynch shadows Seth Troxler for five days at Miami WMC 2012, finding out how extremely high and low things can get.

    From the Tuesday, March 20th edition of Private Stock, Bill Patrick's online radio show, this time hosted live from the villa at 4442 Prairie Ave, Miami Beach.

    Bill: "We got a killer, killer lineup. Point guard from Argentiiinaaa, Guuuuttiiiiiiii. Guti in the house. Our shooting guard, from Clinton Township Michigan, went to state college, Ryan Crossoooooooooon, a regular here at Private Stock. At small forward, from Tel Aviv, Guy.... Gerbeeerrrrrrr. Guy? At power forward from Brusseelllllllls, Igor Vicente, AKA Ultrasoooooone. And, starting center, from Kalamazoo, Michigan, the black behemoth, the rumble-in-the-jungle—is that racist? No?—Seth... Trooooxleeerrrr. Signature sky-hook Seth. He used to play power forward in high school. And center.

    "We're live from the villa.... Everyone's a little bit tired, they haven't slept. It's the first day of conference. Fucking amateurs, you'd think they would know to pace themselves, yet, it's Tuesday, and no sleep. No one likes to sleep. I rolled in from New York, everyone's still awake from the night before, completely fuckin' crackers, and they're like 'let's do the show.' Guy, actually, Gerber, is the one who spearheaded this, and he's outside talking about fucking love with Seth, and Guti, who can't even fucking stand, I don't even think he understands English right now... I mean, whatever. Ryan's here, and he's helping out. These other fucking mamalukes got nothing to provide."

    Ryan: "Relationship talk 101 with Guy Gerber and Seth Troxler. Igor's getting a good look at the dumb shit that we do, over and over and over."

    Bill: It's a proper fucking Opera show going on over there. You guys wanna talk about this at all?... Seth is deep in a text right now. Everyone's having problems with love right now. It's the spring season... Ryan's good, sure, but you know, don't be selfish, everyone else is having problems."

    Ryan: "Everyone in this room has picked me up when I've been down in matters of love, so I'll be here for them."

    Bill: "I'm just saying don't be fucking—I'm guilty of this as well. Just love yourself, and then, you'll find it easier to love someone you're with. Because right now we live this lifestyle where we're all over the place DJing, got this crazy lifestyle, it's super fun, but it's a bitch to get in a relationship, and we overthink it. I think we just need to play it cool. Just find someone you're happy with and don't try and be a fucking superstar, don't think you can just go around and be... no? It's the case for a lot of people. I'm just saying, just don't be a dick."

    Troxler has one good track, IMO. He's a decent jock, but nothing to bug out about.

    Out of curiosity, which cuts are you into, Dave? The only track I dig is Aphrika, which has a really cool Maya Angelou sample over a nice Detroit-style groove. I listen to most of his stuff that comes out on the strength of the one I like, but can never seem to get as up for them.

    I hear ya ... and I should have been more specific - I don't play most of his stuff out, I like/love his stuff b/c (in my head & ears) it's always a departure from the norm, and entertaining

    ... love Rave Loot Barbaro & have played that out many times

    Dave - i know your previous job took you to many places around the world regularly - can you relate to what the article is getting at?

    I can relate to some things, but I have to read it again - only have 2/3 of a brain right now - closed down ESL last night w/ jojoflores, Sam Burns and Tom B

    I can't relate b/c Music is his business, whereas I can step away from my business on the road, and have fun w/ an entirely different set of folks (that don't determine my profit & loss in 9-5 business)

    ... but if I can sum up one thing (whether it's relating, or just my platform - and I'm always consistent about this), is that if you're nice to everyone on the road (from the taxi drivers to folks you work with), travel is pretty fucking amazing - so amazing, that when at home, it feels weird ... so with that constant uncertainty, nothing is normal, and therefore a 'sense of entitlement never exists' ... so 'settling' for the status kuo is something that is never in my brain - and listening to folks yap about problems that are easily solveable, with a bit of effort, is often mind-boggling

    ... check this clip below - the kind of stuff I say on here daily (which deepens relationships w/ folks that are friends (and even enemies), and further alienates me from folks that don't wanna hear that shit)

    First of all, JK Simmons is J Jonah Jameson...

    I love that clip

    I heard a cat speak about dreams the other day. Actually, he was a preacher (but he wasn't preaching)
    As for the charges against me, I am unconcerned. I am beyond their timid lying morality, and so I am beyond caring.

    so you're saying you're proud of your ignorance? (dissin' Troxler, while concurrently promoting yourself? ... you ain't never gonna make it with that BS approach my man) ... gawd this scene is getting more fucked up by the day - no wonder cats hate the Tongs & Guettas actually out there making stuff happen, propping up their peers, and making coin

    Congrats Tommy! - and aside from my comment above, I really do mean the congrats part - that's awesome!

    What I find interesting about this article and conversation is that Seth and his Visionquest crew does play some Soulful House but most Soulful House DJ's ignore the music of Seth and his Visionquest crew.

    LOL

    You must not do much record shopping. I don't think I have a Troxler joint (much less getting paid from licensing a work to him) but I know who dude is!

    Hee Haw!

    always love the BS play of a no-name, claming to not know a major player (or star on the rise), whilst riding on their coattails

    bwahahhahahahahahahahahahha

    He wrote and produced the track but doesn't know who its licensed to. Either he has a terrible memory or is involved in the worlds worst contract. Licensing money is good money too!

    Good lord! The assumption that we're all idiots is universal

    dude, do you actually believe him?

    TB is a great DJ, and can dance is ass off

    ... however it's unfortunate when folks venture outside their core competencies, and embarrass themselves, trying to be down (on themselves)

    it's a no win situation ... how the hell can you be in the scene, and not know Seth ... then adding BS insult to injury, grab a YouTube, slap Seth's name & graphic on it, put your name on it, and then say you don't know a cat?

    ... like I said, TB is a talented dude (forgot to props him on his productions), but needs serious help in the PR and respect department (which keeps too many talented cats, from achieving the next level that they covet - b/c in the end, no matter the industry, integrity trumps all; sadly, many cats don't put value in that, in their quest to promote 'me me')

    * edit/add - preemptive anticipated BS response "I didn't mean I didn't know who he was, I just posted I didn't know him (as in we've never had dinner together)"
