So fuck it..I'm fed up with this west coast mentality that techno has to be
mixed like trance, or even house. Techno can be far more cut up, messy and
noisy...in terms of experimentalism, you can't deny it. People sure hated "Down
on The Corner" when that came out too. All full of disjointed rhythms and
off-beat timing. Well, C** is my "Down on
the Corner," and damn it, I stand by it. In my mind it's a fuck of a lot better
than playing out 5 minute techno-trance tracks then beatmatching for 3
bars...there are some superb mixes on that tape, I just think everyone
completely misses them because they are smooth...it is when I *make* it not
smooth people notice...and that is the point...<C**a>. I
think my biggest mistake was creating this tape as a promo. It isn't-- it's a
feeling. M** is the same, but is probably
more compatible with people's pre-conceived notions about techno.
I feel like dj Spooky.
So I've ended up defending myself. Whatever.

Here's a story:
This madmen comes rushing into the middle of the town streets one night,
crying "Wither is rave? Whither is rave?," carrying a handful of glowsticks-- "I
seek Rave! I seek Rave!" The townspeople with their phat pants gather around him
and laugh. Then the madmen starts to throw down serious like--
"Is Rave a fad? And where is the underground? I shall tell you. *We have
killed Rave*-- you and I. All of us are its murderers. But how did we do this?
How could we drink up all of the Smart Bar? Who gave us the broom to mop away
the horizon of flyers? What were we doing when we unchained rave from anarchy?
Whither is the culture going? Away from anarchy? Towards, already in stagnant
commercialism? Is there still anything good or bad? Has it not become quieter?
Do we not need glowsticks at every partE? Do we hear nothing as yet of the noise
of the phat-panted partydiggers burying Rave? Do we smell nothing yet of the
sound decomposition? Raves too, decompose. RAVE IS DEAD. Rave remains dead. And
we have killed it. How shall we comfort ourselves with Gap clothing, the
murderers of yet another resistance culture? What was strongest and craziest has
bled to death under our own knives: who will wipe the blood off for us (and
clean the fun-fur?) What bottled 3$ water
is there for us to clean ourselves? What other drugs shall we have to invent?
Must we not we all become promoters and djs to simply to appear worthy of it?
There has never been a greater deed-- at least not in this hyperreal moment,
change the channel --for the sake of this deed Rave will be remembered in
history as teenPeople magazines and Melrose place."
Here the madmen fell silent and looked again at his listeners; and they, too,
were silent and stared at him with phat-panted grins of imcomprehension
(astonishment? never!). At last he threw his glowsticks to the ground, and they
broke into pieces and went out. "I have come too early. Perhaps I have come far,
far too late. My time is not yet; my time has already happened. This deed is
still more distant and yet already passed from them than most distant stars and
speaker systems-- *and yet they have done it themselves.*"
It has been related further that on the same day the madman forced his way
into several warehouses and clubs and there struck up his rant. Led out and
rubbed with happE fun-fur, he is said to have replied nothing but: " What after
all are these warehouses and clubs now if they are not tombs and sepulchers of
