Preaching the exact opposite of what our culture tells us and disguising it in a pop song. Telling a story in a video is crucial to me. It has to have a good plot line with a few twists.

Shane – The DJ: Same as Shane’s favorite music style “Progressive”, his life and his career also revolve around the same thing: Progress! Starting in the early 90’s playing his tracks from vinyl, Shane never limited himself to just one medium of music. With DJ equipment evolving, with new technologies coming up, he always had an open mind and ear for development and progress. Even if it meant to go against the mainstream and against traditionalized DJ’ing, Shane always stayed true to himself and evolved throughout different techniques of playing music, changing his vinyl-decks for CDJ’s, and from there on experimenting with an even more digitalized art of DJ’ing, involving his MacBook Pro, NI Traktor and the development of an own interface for the Jazzmutant “Lemur” Touchscreen-Multitouch-Surface controller, thus completely abandoning traditional media and moving towards a purely digital form of playing music.
