This is a great video. J-Zone shows us around his technologically impaired home studio setup with his broken MPC and his copy of Pro Tools 6.2.2 and explains how a more primitive recording process has actually enhanced his music in different ways. Which goes back to what DJ Eclipse was saying in the last 2 minutes or so of this video, about how technological advancements have so lowered the bar of entry into music that everybody just kinda puts out anything whether its good or not. No dues are being paid and there’s little struggle to speak of, and so the music reflects that. J-Zone’s janky setup is what this culture is all about, making the best of what you have and turning shit into sugar.
