Quincy Jones Jr says “EDM IS JUST NOISE”

Posted by: Scott

QJ

 

Quincy Jones Jr. is an American record producer, conductor, composer, television producer and film producer who is not too keen on electronic dance music. Recently Quincy Jones sat down with The National to talk about an award he just won in the United Arab Emerites. The National and Quincy Jones discussed a wide variety of topics from his music career to what the current state of music looks like.

When Quincy was asked what type of music he feels like is all about the money, he responds with “I don’t like techno at all. That’s just noise. I can try it because there is nothing to it but I just don’t think there is anything to learn from it. Now all these DJs are making more money than rock groups. They don’t even need bands anymore. People such as Skrillex and those guys get half a million to a million dollars a show all over the world from Las Vegas to Brazil. As a musician it is extremely frustrating. Because that’s just music to sell products.”

Cazal is pleased to announce the release of its 2014 campaign lookbook featuring world famous director Spike Lee.
Shot by noted New York photographer and filmmaker Armen Djerrahian, his inspiration for this special shoot was the acclaimed cult film director.  Both Cazal fans, they brainstormed for the concept and location.  Spike mentioned “Fort Greene”, Brooklyn – the quarter in which he grew up that additionally houses his production company “40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks” – would be an ideal fit for the historic brand.  The chemistry between both artists was exceptional and the final shots perfectly depict the unique look and feel of the brand.

 

“All of us at Cazal were thrilled for the opportunity to work with Spike Lee,” explained Beate Obersteiner, CEO.  “Aside from his obvious talents, Mr. Lee has been a huge fan of the brand and its history from its earliest days, even featuring the Cazal 616 on the iconic character ‘Mars Blackmon’ which he created for the movie ‘She’s Gotta Have It’.  Once he expressed a desire to be involved in each facet of the project, including creatively, we knew the final shots were going to be very special.”
