It is very rarely, even fair to say ever that MEOKO blogs about these EDM popstars however people are furious over Lee Foss’s tactics which saw him having his gig cancelled July 4th rooftop BBQ at Monkey Loft by the promoters which promote live streams of electronic music in California. This came off the backlash of a flyer which can only be described as vile- the flyer indicate a woman performing oral sex with her head coverd up – tasteless to say the least, this is not what the music industry stands for, this is NOT the msg we want to put out. Infact Lee Foss, what exactly are you promoting here? It certainly doesnt belong in the electronic music industry.
He will not play our event quoted the promoter in a earlier FB post, I will lose thousands of dollars which I’ve already paid, but I cannot work with a guy who objectifies women much less as a form of self-promo. Disgusting”
“Such gross behaviour. If this was sport, he and his management would be suspended without pay and have to go through counselling / rehabilitation before he could return, meaning there was a chance they could learn from the experience rather than being named and shamed, without any constructive resolution. Imagine if we had some sort of structure of accountability within our industry.” Clare Dickins (PR Professional)
