Last year I had what was simultaneously one of the best and worst experiences of my life and this is its story.
.
The story begins in 2016 when we were offered the chance to make CVNT5 (@wearecvnt5) into a full 8 episode TV show with a $2m budget. We said yes! Someone was going to pay to make our stupid side project into a TV show? What could go wrong! 😐
.
CVNT5 had started out as a total piss take in the over-serious world of dance music and that was liberating. There was a small team of us behind the concept and it was fucking fun: dressing up stupidly and doing stupid shit. Our first music video went crazy. Fans started turning up to gigs in gold jackets. In short, it was very fun.
.
So, we wrote a show. Cast it. Started filming. And then it ALL WENT TO SHIT, haha 🙈
.
Our core CVNT5 team swiftly fell apart. There were walk-offs, tears, lawsuits, and numerous occasions when it looked like the whole production would collapse. It got ugly. Relationships were broken.
.
There were many occasions when I asked myself: “What the fuck am I doing here?”.
.
I was working 18 hour days on a TV set, barely seeing my family (whilst my wife was 8 months pregnant) whilst dealing with an insane level of stress and drama on what was meant to be my ‘fun’ project. If it wouldn’t have put our wonderful crew of about 50 people out of work, I would have likely fucked off on a flight to Ibiza, got suitably smashed, and never uttered the words CVNT5 again.
.
But, against all odds, we got it done. We wrapped.
.
And on the upside our set was a lot of fucking fun. I loved spending every waking minute with our incredible crew / family. I learned how to act (sort of) by working with people far better than me. We had some amazing cameos from people like Pete Tong, Dillon Francis, Tydi, and CaptainSparklez.
.
There were times when we’d be laughing so hard we could barely get through a take. And eventually, the show got edited and to everyone’s surprise turned out to be REALLY FUCKING GOOD.
.
And so, given it nearly killed me, I’d very much like you all to watch the show when it comes out, on June 28th.

Clips, trailer, and more conventional promotional messages will follow 😉

Feeling good. Although I’m working hard as fuck right now on @choonhq_ launch I’m managing to get in a decent workout every day. Usually, that’s 5.30am in the gym before the mayhem starts but today it was a two hour hike. Proper fucking treat 🔥🙏

Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing wife Kat, and mum (mom) to our two amazing kids, dog, as well as running an incredibly successful art gallery (@art_angels) and putting up with my shit. I am super fucking proud of her.
.
Also, Happy Mothers Day to my own Mum. She’s not with us any more, I was 26 when she died, I still think about her almost every day. I’m not really a person who has regrets and my life is ridiculously fortunate and privileged so I generally look on the upside and stay grateful for the overwhelming amounts of positives in my life. I do wish she could have met my kids as she would have made an amazing grandparent, but life ain’t always perfect, so I just try and live my best life for her. She was always the person who constantly pushed me to achieve and work hard even when I was a lazy fucker, but I just about got the hang of it in the end. Xx

My social media game has been weak cos I’ve been doing life stuff but here is a rundown of the last week -

.
3) Tenerife is awesome
.
4) Sansa is growing up fast
.
5) Traveling with 2 young kids is chaotic but also somewhat awesome 🤪
.

“My mother-in-law’s haberdashery garage” 😂🤣😂
.
Seriously though most good tech companies seem to start from a garage so it’s quite fitting I am here today. And of course it doesn’t matter where you work. As long as there’s internet fire up the fucker and get started.
.
SO..... Choon launches today, I’ve done lot of chatting about this company so I won’t blab on but come visit us at CHOON.CO and check some of the music on there. We’ve worked out bollocks off on this since November and we think it’s come out rather nicely.
.
It’s a next level music streaming platform based on crypto / blockchain and is one of the music exciting projects I’ve ever been involved in, which we genuinely believe will change the lives of worldwide artists for the better 🔥

Finishing records is, and always has been hard as fuck for me. For the uninitiated here’s how it goes. When you first write a killer melody or vocal, you fucking love it. Imagine hearing a great track, for the first time, and you’ve just fucking invented it out of thin air? Yes, the feeling is that good.
.
However, producing a track to a high standard literally requires thousands and thousands of listens.
.
You know when you overplay a track and ruin it for yourself? Like that, but on steroids. Times a thousand.
.
So months later the track is nearly done but you’re now bored to fucking tears with that killer melody. The baseline all of a sudden sounds wrong. You question every element of the track even if you loved them at first. You never want to hear it again.
.
I say, without exaggeration, every single track I’ve finished has had A Struggle like this. A moment when I wanted to give up making music. When I thought I wasn’t good enough. When I beat myself up because I was sure things couldn’t be this fucking hard for Rob Swire or Eric Prydz and maybe I was just in the wrong fucking job.
.
Yet I reminded myself that people hearing a track for the first time would love it like I did at first, and the prize of releasing a great record is worth a few hard days.
.
So I pushed past those demons and finished my tracks.
.
Not once, not twice, but hundreds of times.
.
It does not get any easier, I’m afraid. But, this is, however, what it takes, so now you know.
.
(I’ve just finished something new so the struggle is quite fresh in the memory)

Genuinely heartbroken to hear about @avicii.
.
He was such an inspiration to me (the melody in Lost was entirely inspired by his, much better and more original track “all you need is love”)
.
I didn’t know Tim well, but on the 4-5 times we hung out or shared a stage he was never anything other than gracious and lovely, even as he was becoming the biggest DJ in the world.
.
It’s utterly tragic that he should have had a whole life of making his incredible melodies for us all, and yet he’s gone less than 10 years after his career started.
.
We - the dance music industry - need to get better at taking care of our younger stars. Heavy touring is mentally and physically brutal, even when you’re used to it. I can’t even imagine being remotely ready for it when I was 18. There’s always more gigs, more tracks and more money but you only get one life. This is such a wake up call.
.
RIP Tim Berling and thanks for all the music you made. For a short time, it made all our worlds a little brighter xx 😢

Last year I had what was simultaneously one of the best and worst experiences of my life and this is its story.
.
The story begins in 2016 when we were offered the chance to make CVNT5 (@wearecvnt5) into a full 8 episode TV show with a $2m budget. We said yes! Someone was going to pay to make our stupid side project into a TV show? What could go wrong! 😐
.
CVNT5 had started out as a total piss take in the over-serious world of dance music and that was liberating. There was a small team of us behind the concept and it was fucking fun: dressing up stupidly and doing stupid shit. Our first music video went crazy. Fans started turning up to gigs in gold jackets. In short, it was very fun.
.
So, we wrote a show. Cast it. Started filming. And then it ALL WENT TO SHIT, haha 🙈
.
Our core CVNT5 team swiftly fell apart. There were walk-offs, tears, lawsuits, and numerous occasions when it looked like the whole production would collapse. It got ugly. Relationships were broken.
.
There were many occasions when I asked myself: “What the fuck am I doing here?”.
.
I was working 18 hour days on a TV set, barely seeing my family (whilst my wife was 8 months pregnant) whilst dealing with an insane level of stress and drama on what was meant to be my ‘fun’ project. If it wouldn’t have put our wonderful crew of about 50 people out of work, I would have likely fucked off on a flight to Ibiza, got suitably smashed, and never uttered the words CVNT5 again.
.
But, against all odds, we got it done. We wrapped.
.
And on the upside our set was a lot of fucking fun. I loved spending every waking minute with our incredible crew / family. I learned how to act (sort of) by working with people far better than me. We had some amazing cameos from people like Pete Tong, Dillon Francis, Tydi, and CaptainSparklez.
.
There were times when we’d be laughing so hard we could barely get through a take. And eventually, the show got edited and to everyone’s surprise turned out to be REALLY FUCKING GOOD.
.
And so, given it nearly killed me, I’d very much like you all to watch the show when it comes out, on June 28th.

Finishing records is, and always has been hard as fuck for me. For the uninitiated here’s how it goes. When you first write a killer melody or vocal, you fucking love it. Imagine hearing a great track, for the first time, and you’ve just fucking invented it out of thin air? Yes, the feeling is that good.
.
However, producing a track to a high standard literally requires thousands and thousands of listens.
.
You know when you overplay a track and ruin it for yourself? Like that, but on steroids. Times a thousand.
.
So months later the track is nearly done but you’re now bored to fucking tears with that killer melody. The baseline all of a sudden sounds wrong. You question every element of the track even if you loved them at first. You never want to hear it again.
.
I say, without exaggeration, every single track I’ve finished has had A Struggle like this. A moment when I wanted to give up making music. When I thought I wasn’t good enough. When I beat myself up because I was sure things couldn’t be this fucking hard for Rob Swire or Eric Prydz and maybe I was just in the wrong fucking job.
.
Yet I reminded myself that people hearing a track for the first time would love it like I did at first, and the prize of releasing a great record is worth a few hard days.
.
So I pushed past those demons and finished my tracks.
.
Not once, not twice, but hundreds of times.
.
It does not get any easier, I’m afraid. But, this is, however, what it takes, so now you know.
.
(I’ve just finished something new so the struggle is quite fresh in the memory)

Genuinely heartbroken to hear about @avicii.
.
He was such an inspiration to me (the melody in Lost was entirely inspired by his, much better and more original track “all you need is love”)
.
I didn’t know Tim well, but on the 4-5 times we hung out or shared a stage he was never anything other than gracious and lovely, even as he was becoming the biggest DJ in the world.
.
It’s utterly tragic that he should have had a whole life of making his incredible melodies for us all, and yet he’s gone less than 10 years after his career started.
.
We - the dance music industry - need to get better at taking care of our younger stars. Heavy touring is mentally and physically brutal, even when you’re used to it. I can’t even imagine being remotely ready for it when I was 18. There’s always more gigs, more tracks and more money but you only get one life. This is such a wake up call.
.
RIP Tim Berling and thanks for all the music you made. For a short time, it made all our worlds a little brighter xx 😢

In a world where everyone is constantly documenting every single moment of their life, it’s bizzarely satisfying to work on truly insane projects in total isolation 😎
.
I admit, my social media game when not on tour is weak as fuck. That’s cos I am so focused on smashing whatever the hell it is I am working on, and delivering something I can be proud of for the rest of my life, that I simply don’t want the distraction of documenting it via stories along the way or ruining the surprise of the announcement.
.
You will notice I almost never post what I am working on or similar because, I would rather let the results speak for themselves.
.
If you’re creating content and working on long projects, the current ‘standard wisdom’ is post all the time and document what you’re working on. But remember, there’s always another way 😎👌🎶

LONG WAY HOME was originally on my 2014 album Drive. I think it’s one of the best tracks I have ever made, and finally, we’ve got two new remixes out today! 🔥
.
Here’s a vid of me dropping the @ashwallbridge remix at  #laserface SF. Full video from that show is coming soon btw!
.
There is also a cracking remix from @ciaranmcauley 😎

Happy Easter! Had a great weekend with 3 amazing gigs (thanks to all who came out), ate far too much unhealthy food, then finished up with a great party at @jacquelinnapal @chuckcomeau residence with this rabble. 🐣 #eastersunday

It’s hard to do this show justice with photos and videos but I think this one gets close. This is just a preview. Full video of my entire set from  #laserface San Fran in production and looking fire 🔥🔥🔥

What say you?

What say you?

2000: “You realize getting a record signed when you have no contacts is impossible, right?”
.
2003: “You’re leaving work to pursue music full time? I hope your work will let you come back as your chances of making it are incredibly slim”
.
2006: “You’re a good DJ but you’ve been trying this for 3 years and you still make less than minimum wage and live at home with your parents. You tried, but it’s probably time to move on”
.
2018: “You’ll never sell out the Bill Graham”
.
(I could write these all day)
.
Listen, I fucking love being underestimated and you should too. It’s been the case my whole life. In fact, when someone tells me I can’t do something, it’s the fire I need to go ahead, prove them wrong, and shove it down their fucking throats.
.
Except, when it does, I never want to do that. Because when you achieve things you’re truly proud of, the people who didn’t believe in your are the last people on your mind. You’re not thinking about those who doubted you. You’re thinking about the incredible team who believed in you and the people who supported your vision (who are pictured here)
.
Point is, next time someone tries to talk your goals down, just laugh it off and use it as fire.
.
Just because they’ve given up, doesn’t mean you have to. Just because they’re bitter and thinks the world owes them doesn’t mean you need to feel that way.
.
Go out, work your fucking arse off, execute daily, and mad shit happens. I fucking promise you.

So this was last night... huge love to the incredible crowd who made it one of the best shows I’ve ever done, the rest of the line up, and our incredible team who worked longer and harder behind the scenes than us and and pulled it the fuck off. They deserve a few beers today.

Sansa has been asking to come and see ‘daddy work at the disco’ for a long time so last night we finally agreed and she came on stage and waved to 8500 people ❤️
.
In case you’re wondering why this wasn’t during the track I wrote for her, that was my encore track and way too long past her bedtime haha .

Firstly, tomorrow’s show in SF is sold out - we’re all incredibly grateful for the chance to blow all your minds tomorrow night and are working tirelessly to repay your faith in us at the biggest headline show I’ve even done.
.
Secondly, to celebrate we’re going to shoot a music video for a brand new song of mine at the show and you have the opportunity of being in it. If you’re coming to the show, and want to get involved, send us an email and one of the crew will try to get you in. Gaz x
