OMG! I got shocked with this deepchild story at the airport. Seriously, they can't ask for your email password and just go thru your personal messages trying to find something. This is a very frightening situation... I would demand a representative of the embassy of my country on the spot immediately or, at least, a lawyer. This is basic human rights. I also have heard Nina Kraviz had some issues getting a visa on time to play in UK and let's not forget about Ricardo freakin' Villalobos getting his entry refused in the US in 2001. Not that the countries should not be concerned about illegal immigration, drug smuggling and terrorism; there are a lot of bad and unethical people out there, but still, a quick internet research should be enough proof about the DJ's "credentials".
The GEMA thing, all I can say is I am really hoping for the best. I was in the GEMA protest earlier this Summer, in Berlin, and it was a beautiful demonstration. I am sure they are all going to reach a reasonable agreement and, hopefully, the German nightlife scene will not suffer.
About the whole pressing play issue... Well... I am still quite not sure who named that guy the official spokesperson of electronic music scene, but I don't think his words/behavior should get any form of validation by his peers. It's a waste of time to get pissed off by his statements and try to argue, instead, let's just resort to the music and prove otherwise!
Live acts, DJs, performers, who cares? We all are going to be dead in a 100 years from now, we might as well enjoy our time and just dance...
