This...guys don't defend him...i like Steve but he really talks a lot and does nothing (for now)
'' I’ve watched the Ultra stream and was shaking my head, you know? I expect more. Granted, I’m a very harsh critic of myself and of others, but I do expect more. I want to be blown away. I want to be sitting there with my eyes wide open, saying, "Whoa, what is this record, what’s he playing? I’ve never heard this before," and so on. It’s not happening. ''
And his set was mediocre at best...He could play a set that nobody would expect, but he's also playing it quite safe, so why bullshit on others?
As far as Kanye West thing, i think we all know a couple of people, at least, in dance music who don't give a fuck about anything and they just keep doing their own thing...
You are totally right with his ultra set, I was blown away too when I read that part about watching stream. Such bullshit

So true. Steve talks too much and he takes himself way too seriously. And sadly, he is that kind of guy that call "Art" everything he does, to give some credit to his mediocre music.
I used to like that guy but he really bores me at the moment. Specially with that kind of interviews.

We shouldn't be afraid to say what we think and yet we're having voting polls to open threads, complete nonsense here.

Anyway, Steve is not as relevant as he used to be as you guys said, but when you play on the main stage of a festival, of course you try to be safe generally !

I think even if we neverdo another poll, just brining attention to was good enough, i agree with you guys, but most threads start with the sentance 'this guy/guys have done a couple songs i like, so why not?' I just think people need to feel out the rest of the forum more, a la the amersy thread.

Well, i just heard TIME by Shaun Frank and it is actually good and different from what they use to release and it is refreshing !

It is a little bit too more "Heldens" but the vibe is nice !

So please Steve, stop talking about Size 10.2.3 and start acting like this !

Did you read the article or not? Scooter is gonna help with PR and that stuff for Wild Youth. I can also guess that him and Steve have used his connections for some of the collabs.
