Such a tragic thing that someone died but I think its becoming more and more popular to not be stacked up on drugs while listening to this music now. Never really got the point in it anyways, EDC has gotten a fair amount of flack from artists and people before, they definitely have alot of things that they need to tighten up on such as crowd numbers and capacities and control/flow of the people at the event etc but it was the attendees choice to get doped up and OD and unfortunately kill himself so theres more blame on him obviously. Promoters dont get enough recognition imo thats why I posted this article, they had all the safety measures in place to prevent stuff like this but it was just a insane amount of people and thats what lead to the early shut down of the event.

Well its safe to say that I haven’t given this blog any attention what so ever in awhile, so I thought it would be a good idea to give it a mass update on all things LIFE!

First up, last weekened was my second show for Black & Red Entertainment, it was at Zeal West, Henderson, Auckland and had a pretty decent turnout of 100 people in the main room, which based on the feedback I got from the bands that played was good vibes which is allways good to hear 😀 So currently in the works for another one up there in Sep/Oct, unsure on the details at the moment, will post more once I get it sussed.

Another big thing was that I moved back down to my hometown of Tauranga, mainly for two good reasons… Something pretty big came up in my family and id just like to be around family for awhile and the other is to safe money for uni next year in Auckland, so im only in Tauranga for around six months which I dont mine at all.

Music wise ive just been listening to the new releases of Skrillex, Foreign Beggars, Feed Me, Of Mice & Men and a few other random songs which are all killer releases by the way. I really REALLY love the new Of Mice & Men album, such a good step up from their old album and I really love the soft tracks and the fact that there is more singing on the album than the previous, just makes it alot more fresh sounding that the last release!

Last but not least ive got some video stuff that ive got to start editing together for my uni portfolio which submissions begin in September I think, so hopefully those turnout well and the people im doing it for dig it.

Ill start posting “interesting” things more often now and keep the blog more active with updates and cool things.

❤ Will.
