Put a Donk on it!

I came across an extraordinary documentary yesterday (nod of the cap to Iain Tait @ Poke). This is by far and away the very best thing I’ve seen on the internet since the Kersal Massive.

This is Donk-tastic! Watch the full documentary.

At first I thought it was a spoof in a classic Chris Morris kind of way, but then I realised there are just too many good bits for it to be fake.

This is totally genuine.

The Blackout crew have 4million hits on YouTube with ‘Put a Donk On It':

The scene is focused around Fandom & a strong DIY UGC ethic. In some ways it’s more digital than Digital and others are copying the style:

Newham Generals feat. Dizzee Rascal – Violence:

It’s affronting, cheap, sexist and refines the lowest common denominator…It’s totally Donk…

new music strategy

Twenty-five years ago the route to musical success was fairly well defined: practice in someone’s bedroom, do some local gigs, record a demo in a local studio, send the demos on cassette to major, London-based record labels and hope they picked you up.

It rarely worked, but it’s what pretty much everyone did – when it did work, the band had invariably added the two extra steps of having their demo pressed onto vinyl and had got it reviewed by The NME, but we were never clever enough to realise that at the time. Obviously, everything has changed these days, and I’ve spent some time trying to work out exactly how to go about making and promoting music in this modern climate of disruptive technology.

The best info on the subject I’ve found has been Andrew Dubber’s blog new music strategies and I can’t recommend it enough for anyone who’s starting out or who wants to learn from someone with alot to give.
