For my analysis I will be looking at the magazine article “New Band”. The article which features on the page is a interview with multiple EDM DJ’s and talking about their connections with one another. The reason I am looking into the style of writing used in these articles is so that I can create my own article in the same style as these professional outcomes to get the best result from my article.
It is apparent that a journalist was present to ask the musicians questions about their work and how they are all connected. The impact of having a journalist there means they can achieve greater information for an article, and from asking questions you can get direct answers. Furthermore, you can use these answers in the article and embed quotes directly from the artist which engages the reader as they feel they are getting the most truthful response. An area where the presence of a journalist is very apparent is where the question is added before the answer such as “Scooter, how did you connect with Garrix?”.
The journalist describes the appearance of each of the musicians which shows their alternative genre, he mentions their “drags on cigarettes with puff’s on an industrial-grade vape” which asserts their conventions with their dark clothes and characteristics of a rockstar DJ. The journalist also mentions characteristics of the musicians which are direct contrasts to the clothing they are wearing and their intimidation smoking habits. This is interesting to read as the photos do not convey the same messages about their personalities.
Quotes are used amongst the article to give backstory and context to their work in the music industry one quote which was inserted to emphasise the popularity of the EDM music genre by saying “was becoming so big I really couldn’t ignore it”. Furthermore, the writer scales up the size of EDM music by talking about how the pop superstar Justin Bieber is getting involved in this new rising music genre and these three men are the founding original creators for this genre.
The structure of the article is two blocks the larger being the introduction to who they are and some information about the type of music they make, their appearance and personalities. The second paragraph was going into how they all met and was mostly made up from a quote said by one of the members.
