#033 George FitzGerald
Electronic music and DJing are intrinsically linked, so what happens when your studio output shifts from being explicitly designed for mixing to something far less functional?
Performing live is a challenge many DJs have taken up, but few as comprehensively as George FitzGerald who fully embraced the live experience after signing to Domino Records and releasing music which was a step away from the UK-bass inflected house bangers with which he initially made his name.
We discuss all that, before embarking on a much wider discussion on the recent changes in the music industry and potential developments that may or may not transpire over the coming decade or two, including the possibility of a VR Berghain, and speculating on why private jet selfies aren't treated in the manner they surely deserve.
Those of you who have followed my career will be aware that George and I go back a long way, but fear not: this episode manages to avoid descending into bro-down territory and was nonetheless an extremely enjoyable and illuminating conversation to have.
We would be extremely grateful if you would support the show on Patreon. There's two tiers... one which gets the show ad-free plus at least a couple of bonus podcasts each month, and a higher tier which additionally gets you all the music we release on Hotflush ahead of time and in HD formats. And also some extra music that you can't get anywhere else. We think it's great value, so if you can do it... we'd love you forever.
