When I first was interested in Mayer Hawthorne, it was despite the fact that he was doing 60’s and 70’s throwback music. On paper he was a “blue eyed soulful Motown/Stax sounding artist”, I would’ve never signed him.

I didn’t even like Northern Soul back when everyone else was liking it.

If these major label guys knew better, they’d try to hire me to do A & R for them. All the coolest artists come to me to release their music now.

[…] vinyl is dead; it’s dead. It’s gonna be a special item for collectors, and probably will exist forever in that way, but that’s it. It’s over.

I’m not one of these younger kids who want everything for free. I go to Beatport, and I even go to CD stores and buy CDs still. It’s a mixture and a balance, but I’m aware that all the young kids just get everything for free. They don’t give a shit.

You need a good a team, the knowledge of how to use the Internet and a good distributor. If you have that, it doesn’t make sense to give it to another label, because you give away your rights, almost half the money, and they just press the same buttons.

But sometimes when you’re in Asia where the culture’s not so defined as in parts of Europe, they don’t have a clue anyway, but that doesn’t happen too often.
