Proof that marcel started the whole shitstorm to viral his blog
HOLY FUCK MARCEL FUCKING BLOCKED ME FOR POINTING OUT HIS VIRALLING. HE STILL HASN'T REVIEWED OUR COVER OF HIS SHITTY SONG Either.
>@lelac8 @lamentoid @skyferreira this blog was created literally yesterday by a 14 year old kid that I didn't want to do an interview with
Marcel is a 14-year-old wannabe music journalist/"ambient musician" who used to viral his music on this site at one point, until /mu/ started making fun of his music and his RYM reviews.
Devin Ruben-Perez of the band DIIV hung out here for a few weeks to answer questions every so often, using a tripcode. At one point, he told Marcel "fuck you" to his face, it is speculated.
Marcel, looking for revenge, cherrypicked some posts of Devin's that use potentially offensive language, screencapped them, and blogged them on Tumblr as an "exposé" of racism, homophobia and sexism occurring within the band. He then sent these images to music news outlets, and they reported on them in the most clickbaity way possible. Zach Cole has been forced to confront Devin, and we're waiting to see how that turns out.
>exploiting a current social trend for his own ends
>stripping a few jokey comments of context and serving them up to all the right rags which revel in creating shallow controversy for the sake of pageviews
>giving no thought to what effect his manipulations and bids for attention will have on the life of someone whose only mistake was acting like a dumb, childish dipshit on a site which practically encourages people to act like dumb childish dipshits, as well as the lives of several other people who have nothing whatsoever to do with the actual drama at hand
Say what you will about this little maggot but he knows how the game works.
- either he PMd the sexism-in-music tumblr and since it's run by Marcel, Marcel just posted the message on his music blog
- or Marcel sent him an email since his mail is public and he said he'd answer all mails.
Oh boy I can't wait to hear some more stolen Sigur Ros songs put into paulstretch even though the effort it would take to download that filth would be more intensive than making it myself!
I doubt it would even matter.
I didn't save it, but the reply to the email about him using the word bitch and his hypocrisy, the mental gymnastics he did was astounding.
Oh boy I can't wait to hear his rich parents getting people to play generic sigur ros garabe for their talentless hack son so he can put it out under his own name and be even more of a soulless attention whore than he already is!
You know what's funny? I always thought it was going to be /mu/ itself the one who was going to ruin everything for Devin. Turns out it was some little shit looking for 15 minutes of fame. I guess it's a good thing you didn't end up being completely dissapointing.
Marcel, shame on you for trying to bring down another Latino brother just so you can get "likes" on your websites.
It's hard out here for POC, especially POC that are trying to make a living as rock musicians. So good job Marcel you just helped make indie rock a less diverse place. You just gave White Supremacists a victory.
>You mean he is a piece of shit like every other journalist... he is just a leech on other people's creativity haha
Well yeah, that's what music journalism is all about in the first place.
Anyone, by any chance, recognize the picture Sexism in Music uses as its favicon? That could be a dead giveaway too if we can trace it back to Marcel.
So first off he gets Dev in shit
Then he gets an interview with Cole
I'm not sure if Cole knows he's the guy responsible for dragging his band through the muck
ps cole has his email public someone could tell him
exactly, that's my point
he doesn't want to have to explain what a "general" is, clearly
anyway ZCS is being such a fucking beta about this, "abloobloobloo I'm the only talented person in my band, you're abusive and ruining the band by saying anything bad about me"
literal 14-year-olds vs. overgrown 14-year-olds, good drama /mu/
It's one of the girls from Pussy Riot, I think.
Funnily enough, Pussy Riot themselves are now lapdogs at Vice's beck and call.
So much for the good fight against Putin.
marcel, know you have ruined one of the few good parts of /mu/ by scaring away devin's trip. a lot of users here are not in a good place in life, and you made their experience a little bit worse by pulling this shit
He also stole the supposed album cover for his next album from a pretty famous and still active artist without credit, despite it being copyrighted. We could easily get him into trouble with that too
>I’m so immediately aware of what women endure in the music industry on a daily basis because I see sky in tears constantly over things she reads online. basically if she does something wrong, it’s 100% her fault, but if she does something right, all the credit is due to someone else. a bad video and she’s responsible for it, a good song and the male producer gets all the credit. it’s a sad state of affairs for women in music, the way men treat them every day. I’m so acutely aware of this struggle that I do everything I can to champion women artists everywhere.
bravo zachary, bravo
Don't, you are going to make him a martyr. I don't want another gamergate here, honestly. It's contained enough, with just a handful of web articles on e-zines. Let's not make it worse for Devin. He's already associated with mysoginists, you don't want him to be associated with cyber-terrorists blowing up vans
And he has songs on bandcamp that use "samples" (literally a 30 second loop from a oneohtrix song)
Now that wouldn't be a problem if they were not on bandcamp where people CAN give him money for it
If we call attention to all the shit he steals from people, we can at least make his life as miserable as he attempted to make Devin's for refusing an interview/making fun of him.
You can't just "give credit" for something. You have to pay for other people's work if you want to use it. Since Marcel did not pay for it or have permission to use it, crediting it isn't enough.
Wow are you fucking kidding me? He didn't even edit it, just put a delay on it, if even. I don't think this even falls under creative commons seeing as it's literally the original song but credited under his name
You only did that after you got called out on it earlier. And depending on the copyright you can still get your ass in legal trouble for not receiving permission. Fucking hack.
as an individual, I don't care for DIIV or Devin in themselves.
it just pisses me off that this kid has the power to create such a bad scene for a serious musician, for such small and stupid reasons.
Nah, archiving Marcel's post where he takes credit for the sexism-in-music tumblr should be enough. I'm sure he's going to delete those at some point. Publically admitting that he made an entire blog just to discredit a single person on a particular circumstance is already damning enough, the stupid little shit just hasn't realized it yet.
its not the same as sampling something organic and giving it a new context...he sampled something that was already considered electronic/sample based/falls in the vein of vaporwave. i am almost ALWAYS on the side of plunderphonic artists but this isn't sampling..it's laziness. fuck marcel.
It last as long as Cole continues to do a shitty job at damage control. Even Sky who is a huge SJW (in the good way) handeled it better than Cole. He should have just ignored it, for fuck sake mememfork and vice are only using his tweets.
Anyone else notice the similarities in this guy and marcel?
He's riding on a legit issue of female representation on music just for a personal vendetta against a niche musician.
It's a pretty shitty thing to do and someone should make pitchfork aware of that, at least, see what they respond.
This someone should compile a journal of sorts
Detailing all the vindictive things he's done
but Daniel Lopatin actually composed that electronically. sampling stuff like soul or r n b is different..sampling something that is already electronically composed feels like it defeats the purpose. the context hasnt really changed at all..it just feels silly.
and yes while vaporwave is generally 'lazy', oneohtrix is not.
How? The backstory might change but Marcel is irelevant to the news as a whole. Devin stil said what he said which is the focus of the story. They don't care about the source because it isn't headline worthy.
Anyway, this whole ordeal will probably be over in a couple of days
He's not well-known enough for anyone to care
Trust me, at the end of this, people will forget about the Devin controversy and no one will know about the existence of Marcel.
Really, he fucked up by making the tumblr anonymously and initially pretending it wasn't him. He could have gotten a couple followers out of it had he not been a pussy about it.
He's just some rich little faggot. Acts like a spoiled brat when things don't go his way and has his mom get him interviews with famous people. She probably fucked Andrew Jackson jihad to get him the interview.
Hahaha, this is straight up Marcel hahaha.
You're a liar
You browse 4chan
You plagiarize music
You make your parents film your incredibly shitty interviews
You think people care at all about what you think or feel
You are fucking autistic or have aspergers
You're opinions are unoriginal and borderline plagiarized from any other retard reviewer or publication
You give a shit about sexism and all that made up stuff just to look like some sort of hero or think you make a difference
In reality you are jeopardizing people who actually create and are successful careers
In the name of your first bullshittings from your 14 year old self.
Take a break, go kiss a girl, read a book, smoke some weed, and listen to pleb music and learn to enjoy life.
You are fucking Nightcrawler
>yfw Marcel's music taste
>anon wants help harassing a little boy so he can fit in
>other anon calls out how pathetic that is
>anon pretends other anon is an idiot to avoid feeling self conscious about himself and his life
>implying I haven't listened to his music
>implying it's not shit
>implying I have an RYM account in the first place and can rate anything at all
