Edits from Mr K


"... my whole life I knew people had leisure time, and were able to enjoy music in their leisure time. Now people have a shorter tolerance and patience so they tend to reach for gimmicks instead of music that grows on you. So much music I like now I didn't like at first. These days, you don't have the time for that and you might never like that song because you'll never give it time to grow on you.

"Places like The Loft - you had this twelve hour party every Saturday, with no mixing and long, obscure cuts. And people just absorbed the whole night. Now, it's every once-in-a-while. I don't know anyone that has the time and patience to stay for an entire evening. People are looking at their watches saying, "I don't like this song and if the next one isn't good, I'm gone." It's that kind of mentality...."

- DJ and re-edit king Danny Krivit, from 5 Magazine interview (photo from 5 Magazine also). He's responding to a question on music trends and cycles in music history.

Krivit got his start DJing in his Dad's restaurant, at 14. It was a steakhouse that was popular with musicians, but slowed down... "By the time I started there, the restaurant was beginning to fail and then it had its second life by implementing the disco. Prior to that, its big reputation came from folks like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Mingus and others. In the '70s there were some celebrities, but it was more of a happening spot as a disco. In the '60s it was completely straight, but just overnight it was completely gay..."

No, it's not an ad. It's some quotes from an interview with Danny Krivit that I found interesting, and the tracklist for a new cd he's got coming out. Cheers
