Nick Thayer's Sales Breakdown for Like Boom EP

by Nikolozi Meladze

Nick Thayer:

I wanted to take a second to break some numbers down for you. I’m doing this to be transparent. To let you know what the life of a producer/DJ looks like from the financial end. People often think there’s a huge amount of money in this scene. There is, but it is very concentrated and in the hands of very, VERY few people. The vast majority are on similar numbers to me, running on fumes most of the time to make this thing work. We do it because we LOVE THE ABSOLUTE SHIT out of writing music, playing music and sharing music.

Interesting read.
