I have been waiting for this for years
Good f***ing riddance.
Mixmag,Ministry and all the commercial bullshit that spawned in the 1990s.
I found it obscene that Oakenfold etc would get thousands for spinning other people's records.
Also strange that the Spectrum scene that he created was a backlash against super clubs and designer labels.
When Acid House came it didn't matter what you wore or where you were.
It was honest,genuine and all about unlimited music that had no rules.
Dance music became exactly what it was rebelling against.
Superclubs,dress code,selective admission and f***ing expensive.
I got tired of Mixmag telling me how to take E this way or that way.
Full of twats trying to be in on the latest-afraid of being honest and genuine-what the scene was all about at first.
808 suffered of course because Don Solaris was not 4/4 Dancefloor beep beep .
We then had to suffer Fatboy Slim being made into some sort of musical genius.
And The Chemical Brothers could fart and everyone would dance to it.
Let's send the scene back to where it came from.Let's make it all about the music again,the honesty and the genuinity.
808 have always stuck to their roots,making music and not caring what the trendies though.Total respect.
No more Madonna or U2 trying to cash in.
