One Idea could be to start a DJ/Producer-school with additional digital design/video design "...".
With regular teachers such as sound-engineers aswell as masterclass-teachers. Ax could be the principal and the masterclasses could be held by Bob Sinclair, Eric Prydz and Ian Carey aso..

The "fee" or what its called could be 10.000,00 Euros for one year of active seminaires and classes and it could be located in southern big city, like Barcelona or such.

JeanP, Please dont use that sarcasm man. It was an idea. And similar schools around the world, like 'SAE' franchise take the same amount of money. But yeah it was an idea with humour doh. In the style of "Semi Pro"(will ferrell) if you understand.

I was exploring some of the old threads and came across this discussion about the money being made off of music. Ax himself said that there's a 1:6 ratio of payed vs illegal downloads. That was a while ago, what do you reckon it would be like now? better or worse? even though EDM has become so much bigger?

It's getting worse... And think about the real producers such as Henrik B : Leave a Light On was only 33 on Beatport (and everybody here knows that it was much better than Atom, who stayed 2 weeks N°1), and with the raise of shit producers who have a real succes (Steve Aoki, Afrojack...), it'll be worse again for the king Axwell and for many others... Lame.

I think that Alesso makes a few releases per year because of that (Same for Seb Ingrosso) : when you make too many releases a year, you loose a lot of money because of illegal download when you compare to the time you spent in your studio to make a great track... And you'll have to DJ more, so less time in studio, and you make the same set for a year. I'd be bored.


I really don't know where the House Music is going (and the music in general)... I'm afraid :? And I'll finish with that, I'm sure that everybody will agree : I'm really surprised that my friends like to download 128 or 96 kbps crap quality instead of spending 1 fucking euro on iTunes to have a 320 kbps (or higher) quality... :?: I'll keep on buying my music.

About albums: Imo it would be way better if they release the CD before the digital release...
More people would by the CD legally and the artist would get more money in the end (I suppose!?)

good idea but all it would take is someone to buy it then upload it
