Welcome to IBG Music, the Website.
Hello world: IBG here from… well, by here I mean Starbucks on a rainy summer afternoon. I’ve just had enough coffee to kill an elephant, and I’m blasting a pretty tough techno set through my Audio-Technicas. Very enjoyable.
Anyway, I’m a DJ and producer living in Maine, USA. While I’ve been playing instruments since I was like 5 years old, it was around 2003 when Theo Parrish came to NYC and did a set at APT. Of course, I had heard techno and house music before, but that night I first experienced it in the form of art, entertainment and lifestyle. I couldn’t believe what I had been missing. It was like discovering that I had a twin brother or something. Anyway, I’ve been hooked to a 4-to-the-floor drip ever since.
Not that house and techno are the only musics I love. If I had to name a favorite, it might be classical. I grew up playing classical guitar and piano, so I have a tremendous love for music that has been written down in Europe for the last thousand years.
At the same time, I’m no stranger to pop music. An often maligned genre, I think a lot of people need to hang up their hangups and stop trying to be cool. The skill of packing a sonically spectacular, musically seamless song into 4 minutes, while above all else remaining addictive, fascinates me.
Ok, I could go on, but the point is, I love music. Music music music.
