You see the name, ill.Gates. You see the first track off his latest (The ill.Methodology), “Crystal Math.” You see all those extra “m”s the show-sponsoring folks at MMMMaven have. But before you say it, answer this: do you know that this San Franciscan monk of beats isn’t a Microsoft-level game-changer when it comes to EDM? Have you considered the relative unimportance of track titles when it comes to live shows at places such as Brighton Music Hall? Do you know how much those “m”s cost? Do ya?
