From the Niagara Falls Review:
DJ Steve Aoki is fine with reality shows on MTV instead of music. He welcomes more American Idol knockoffs.
As far as he’s concerned, they’re great for his industry because they’re forcing people to seek out good music more than ever. When they find something that wasn’t manufactured by a TV show or record company hype, they flock to it.
“Now, kids are forced to discover music on their own terms,” says Aoki, who’ll be part of an all-night dance party at the Scotiabank Convention Centre New Year’s Eve. “It created an open lane for all this music to be discovered. I’m happy for all the reality shows on TV.
“People aren’t lazy – they’re going on YouTube, SoundCloud and Facebook and finding music themselves. That’s the power of dance music – it’s mainly a viral music. You have to discover the music yourself.”
