Be honest, me and multiple others have stated the second part was quite good. Sure, it was mostly said in the sense of 'compared to the first part', but still. It's positive :P

Enjoyed it as well. Not everyone on hardtraxx is negative about gearbox -.- . Sure, things that Luminite said where out of place, and the thera thing was a bit iffy but I like the honesty in the documentary.

Awesome :) The first two chapters are really just testing the water. We have a lot of chapters which delve much further into the guts of everything.

We really hope that you can gain a good understand of all of the characteristics of the artists, the emotions, the reasons behind the music.

In no way at all is this supposed to be some kind of Press Release to look good - in fact, for the most part Gearbox will probably look really pretty bad and unprofessional in a lot of aspects.

I'm really excited to see the reactions for what we've been working on for so long. This has already been about 8 months in the making.

@Gearbox

To say something positive about the 'creativity/dancefloor effect > production quality' thing, personally I really like tracks from newcomers who aren't 'there yet' quality-wise because good atmospheres and creative structures are more important than production quality. It's hard to explain, because I obviously prefer both quality and creativity at the same time.. but a lot of times, high-quality tracks by established artists feel a bit empty to me. Newcomers often 'dare' to do more creative things because the 'good quality but boring atmosphere virus' hasn't affected them yet. This makes it easy for me to put the quality expectations aside, because the creativity, weird kicks, unique samples easily make up for it. Both quality + creativity is an ideal situation, but it doesn't happen that often imo. So if I had to make the choice, I'd much rather have a completely crazy, energetic Rooler track with a bit less emphasis on production quality, than another stale, empty NC track with perfect crisp sounddesign. Because feelz & drive > quality in the end.

Of course this doesn't mean quality doesn't matter. There's still a limit imo, if something sounds like a super amateur production, then nah. But some production quality being sacrificed with more energy, nothing against that.

There are a lot of newcomers around that have a creative mind, good ideas, but just don't have perfect technical skills yet, and because of that the big labels don't want them because it sounds too amateurish. And I like the fact that Gearbox picks those kinda guys up and allows them to grow. Honestly, I think a creative person with unique ideas, good on-stage skills and good social media skills (but a bit less technical skill) has a lot more chance to build a stable career than someone who is technically gifted but introvert and not a 'real DJ' who doesn't know what the crowd wants to hear, resulting in boring tracks and not being booked a lot. So +1 to you guys for 'spotting artists'.

I do have a question about this tho, knowing you guys put less emphasis on production quality etc.. so what's the limit? I often hear the 'if you really want to make it to a big label, be prepared to spend 3-5 years perfecting your sound to be good enough to have a chance' argument. How about Gearbox? For example, are there guys on your label who got signed after only 1 year of producing because they just had good creative ideas? Or do you still use some kind of 'quality meter'? 2 years maybe? I'm just curious :)

Oh we certainly have a limit. I have rejected a LOT of really cool tracks simply because the quality wasn't good enough yet.

For example, Malice, Rooler, Rebelion, The Straikerz, Fraw and many other artists sent me a lot of demos before I could take the risk to release it.

This is also one of the reasons for Revolutions. We have more freedom on revolutions to release stuff which is lower quality. As I said in the documentary, the pressure is much higher and the freedom is less now because if we release really poor quality now, other artists at the label will be related to this negative criticism and be seen in the same light.

I'd like to think that 99% of the track released at the main label now have a much better quality than when we were releasing during our massive growth period.

But, when I find artists who I believe have that ear for music that can't be taught, I will always keep a close eye on it and try to nurture it as much as possible before we take the risk of releasing.

I have actually personally paid for a lot of production lessons for guys who I truly believe in musically that don't quite have that production quality yet - I hope that in time a lot of these guys who struggle will really become insane artists in the future when they improve their quality.

Thanks for the reply :D and good to hear you definitely have standards when it comes to quality, even if it's not the 100% deciding factor.

Why would you ever book flight and hotel before buying tickets?
