The 1derful DJ 04/16/2009

“Business and art are diametrically opposed forces and music has become a business. DJ 1derful attempts to bring the art, the expression to anyone who will listen.” - From DJ 1derful's site

DJ 1derful is the last of a dying breed. In today’s saturated music market, djs, artists, record execs and corporations alike are, for the most part, operating on an egocentric level. They base their decisions on emotion and how the industry can benefit them. Where’s the love? Where’s the compassion? Better yet, where’s the music! Indeed, the business has overshadowed the art form; however, only a selected few are representing the art form despite the temptations of the material world. DJ 1derful is one of those exceptions who expresses his love and bares his soul to the world. I came across his work when I first moved to Atlanta in November. I was desperately searching for clubs, djs, artists and meetup groups that showcased Soulful House, Future Jazz,Lounge and Brokenbeat music. Understanding the New York music scene, these genres of music are the epitome of the dance community.  As far as clubs, djsand artists in Atlanta, these elements are a rarity. However, I found destiny when I stumbled upon DJ 1derful’s, Atlanta’s Deep, Soulful & Classic HouseMusic Meetup Group. From there, I found a link to his website and social networking sites to learn more about his body of work. From links to other artistsand communities, free music streams and downloads and music news, DJ 1derful keeps you “in the know” about what going on in the world of soulful music. Remember, today’s definition of a music fan is different from the traditional perception of what they once represented. Music fans are proactive and involve themselves more in the progression of an artist’s career or a genre of music. DJ 1derful embodies that definition. That is the reason why I featured him in today’s, “Music Fan” section.
