Resistance (313)

Read this, if you haven't already. Mike Banks in all his glory.

It made me wonder. I knew that a lot of DJs from Detroit made some money in Europe during the '90s. I hope they still do. If it wasn't for Jeff Mills or Kevin Saunderson, I wouldn't DJ. Probably I wouldn't even listen to techno. But I understand that when they left Detroit, they left an empty space behind them. And from reading about Detroit, from watching films, from photos, the prevalent feeling I get is that of alienation. Social, physical, mental.

It kinda seemed weird to read that this guy, whose records I'd buy without a thought and who everybody I know respects, complains about the (non-existent) influence of European labels on US radio and how the US artists were left down and behind. Actually, I'm not sure I agree with his points and I'm trying to understand why. I'll pass for now, but I'll get back to this some time later.
