It’s time to make a decision…

19 May

Well, its finally gotten to me. The sniping, the criticism, the narrow-minedness has finally worked. I’m not sure I will be continuing to work on any more mash-ups.

If it’s not one soul forum, then it’s another one. It’s quite clear to me – people don’t like what I do, and they don’t like mash-ups in general. I don’t need the grief – I do them with a good heart and a 100% soulful attitude to try and create something that people might like.

People don’t see them that way, so what’s the point? They class my stuff in the same vein as other mash-up genre’s who just add a 140BPM beat over a soulful vocal. For the record, I’ve never done that.

So, I’d like to say a big thank you to all the people who made these negative comments towards me (and there have been many) – congratulations….you won!

      Hi Ron, they’ve won mate. Never wanted to offend people but to hear people were walking off the dancefloor when a track came on, makes me feel sick…

    Neil, you have a talent. You make many people happy with your remixes. Your Mario/SOS Band track is the most requested tune every Friday at Soul @ The Squire. You have the support from the top DJ’s in the Soul scene, as well as the vast majority of music lovers who travel around the country to have a good time. Whatever you do in life, someone will always knock you. Don’t let the jealousy of a few anorak wearing philistines put you off. Keep on with the mash ups, keep reminding people of tunes they may have forgotten, and keep making people happy.

    Neil, dont let the b**stards grind you down. Your work is awesome and its obvious when you listen to it, that you care about the soul of the music.
    Keep the faith.

    Neil,keep doing it mate,look beyond the small criticism you may receive,and look at the bigger picture.If proffessional footballers gave up because they got booed by rival fans,then there would be no teams left!!!
    I would honestly say there are a lot more people who love what you do than dislike.
    You have come out with some refreshing sounds,and many people dance to your music rather than leave the dance floor.Groove on mate!!!!
