>>3. straight up from Terrence Parker
Hello to all!
If you receive mail from the 313 or Tech-House lists, I'm sure you've seen my postings regarding my idea for a radio show which plays records straight through and gives the listener the artists, titles, and other important info. I admire the work of cats like Andrew on Cognition Audioworks, and Javier on Flyfm, as I feel both are well respected, and intelligently prepared programs. I would like to contribute on a regular basis in some manner (in addition to the mix shows) a segment where I can just play records straight out in the format I've just mentioned to these or other programs over the internet, as well as over the local Detroit airwaves.
I think this is a very necessary thing that's needs to be shared beyond the airwaves of Detroit radio. When aspiring djs and other general fans have difficulty finding out who made certain records, it hurts the overall sales of records. (especially the smaller underground labels) What most people don't understand is that now the entire dance market is flooded (overloaded) with labels & artists. This makes it hard for distributors to keep up with all the product, so they order records very conservatively! And if the distributor is not familiar with the artist, or label's history regarding strong sales, they wont order that particular record at all! This is making it very, very hard on the smaller labels, and up-and-coming artists to establish a place within the market. Worldwide, there are approximately a minimum of 3000 new release a week. The average life of a 12 inch record from the moment that it is
available to the public is ten (10) days, after which, the record dies out (I bet y'all didn't know that)!!!
Smaller labels who don't have the proper budget for advertising are forced to rely on djs to introduce and promote their music to the public. Unfortunately, the first and formost thing on the minds of MOST djs is SELF-PROMOTION! especially the locals, and up-and-coming djs! They want the popularity, and to be able to travel and develop a name as a "world-class" dj, and they want all the perks that comes along with being a popular dj (money, women {or men}, drugs, etc.). But unfortunately, the most important ingredient seems lost with a lot of these cats . . . .THE MUSIC!!!!!
I'm not saying that cats shouldn't have the desire to do what I, and many others like myself have been blessed to do over the years. I remember back in the day when I was homeless, sleeping in my 1983 Mustang GT when the temp was 10 degrees below zero, having no food to eat, and most of my friends who said that they would be there if I ever needed anything were suddenly no-where to be found. In the mid to late 80's, I was known as one of the hottest local jocks with mad turntable skills, and was ranked right up there with cats like Jeff Mills, Gary Chandler, Dj Dangerous, Ray Berry, Reckless Ron Cook, The
Mystro, Dj Zapp, Chris Price aka Dj Fingers, and a few other top Detroit djs, while at the same time living on the street! Furthermore, although I've been spinning since 1982, I didn't own my first pair of 1200's until 1994! So I know all about having that desire to achieve great things within this scene. (Keep in mind that back then, the scene was not nearly as developed as it is today!)
But my desire to achieve was based 100% on the music!!!! I love the music!  Anyway, with most djs concerned with getting a spot on the mix shows, or playing a gig in the clubs or at the popular raves, their 1st agenda is to promote themselves!!!
You'll be lucky if they mention your record at all. (Back in the day, djs
would use markers, and other creative ways to conceal artist, title, and label information so that no one else could play the same record!!!!)
You can't rely on the distributors because they are so overloaded with product that they can't keep up with all the releases. Therefore, depending on where you are in the world, some records may never, ever reach your local record shop!
You can't rely on certain recordshops because of the "in store politics" that goes on amongst the djs and/or other employees who deal with both the customers and the music. Many djs who work in recordshops unfortunately use their position as a point of advantage to get certain records first, and keep these titles to themselves for a number of weeks. They do this so that they can introduce the record locally at parties, on the radio, etc. Thus adding to their own status or popularity as the cat who started "the buzz" on that record. Meanwhile, other cats who want to by the record, can't do so for several weeks until that dj at the recordshop finally decides that enough time has passed where he can now safely make it available to his local "competition"!!!! But keep in mind that with distributors being so overwhelmed with labels, titles, etc., they've noticed that in several weeks, this same record only sold 2 or 3 copies per this, and/or many other shops. Then guess what happens next????? That's right! The distributor decides that this record
is a "flop" and returns its remaining stock back to the label. This is why
after a cat has searched for months and finally finds out the info on that
special track, it's no longer available. The dj at the record store tells him
that the track is "OUT OF PRINT"! In some cases this is a flat out lie becuase they don't want the "competition" to play the same record!
In other cases it is the absolute truth. Wanna know why??? It's because now the small record label has lost so much money on the returns, and can't find another distributor to sell off his remaining stock, that he's forced out of business. (Oh Yes!!! Distributors share information about what's hot and what's not!!!)
I have been a long supporter of bringing the undergorund vibe to the airwaves, and I support anyone whose intention is to do so. However, there has to be an equal balance! The scales are tipped in favor of the mix jock! I want to add balance back to the radio market, and encourage others to do the same. What I am proposing will benefit all: the general consumers, the djs, artists, labels, distributors, and even publishing companies. I'm not trying to dog anybody, or say that all djs have foul intentions. I know several cats worldwide who have done great things for their scenes both locally and worldwide! I'm just saying that it's time to bring REAL LOVE back to this!!!  I've been asked to do a guest spot on Carl Craig's Detroit:Technology show (89X) under the format which I've discussed. I'm also talking with some other stations about doing this on a regular basis in Detroit. But as I stated earlier in this letter, I want to do the same on the net. If you can assist in anyway(radio or internet), I'd love to hear from you!!!
Since first posting this idea on various lists, I have over-whelmed with
positive support for this idea! In this same spirit, I am looking forward to
receiving your comments!!!

>>4. a FLASH ov Brilliance
From: Kidentropy@aol.com
star wars vs. starship troopers.
when scream pounced onto the scene... the horror film was revamped...
take three of the same (Age 16+) generational sitcoms... grab their
stars... throw them in a movie with a homicidal maniac... add some witty yet pointless dialogue... and go. now i will admit... scream was an enjoyable albeit pointless waste of two hours of my time... at the end of the movie... about the only thing i was enlightened to was how much special k had rooted itself into pop culture. it was an affirmation of things i already knew... done slickly and packaged neatly... a retrospective off a part of a generation's life. we salivate on cue to reference points in our own nostalgia.  (snorks! bwahaha pengo! bwhahaha) these things sell. kind of like fatboy slim. music which clearly is a retrospective. Take the drum stylings of early producers such as mantronix, marley marl, and prince paul... follow the 'big ass
breakdown' predictability chart of early club hits that pioneered such
structure and have now been played to death... add a cute, kitchy
quirkiness and wah la... 90's pop. salivate to formerly unacceptable
forms of music in their proper context. someone here mentioned norman cook's words of "i'm living my dreams, getting paid and getting laid."
dreams are the stuff music are made of. And how many times over can you say the same thing... "She's my cherry pie." "I'm hooked on a
feeling." "Check it out now, the funk soul brother." "I can't fight
this feeling anymore." "We've been a long long way together." "Pour
some liquor on the ground for the homies who ain't here." the backdrop... capitalist society... making money... getting high...
getting laid... whoo hoo good time.
Then i think of underground resistance. Hard motherfucking landscapes
gutted by cold logic... every time i lean my head into that fucking
matrix... i come out skewed slanted... able to change... to break from
my animalism into something more... a change, a message, a foothold in the evolution of man... art. and while norman cook's anglo-saxon rape (hate to say it... but what is it?) of a culture gets him money... and he runs around scheduling pay per view events with armand van helden...
soldiers in detroit still fight to be heard above the din of corporate

 >>7. addendum
If I could get my request played up in heaven (when the frank sinatra
and the big band set is over for the boomers) I would hope that
PLASTIKMAN was shaking the eternal bassbins.
the last time my girlfriend got extremely mad at me, she finished her
yelling by screaming "and i don't give a fuck about bloody Underground Resistance!" my ears were ringing from the tongue lashing i had just got, yes, but i was quite impressed that she at least remembered one of the electronic music acts in my life (and one that isn't plastered all over the place (like portishead, massive attack etc)) enough to use it against me:)that's certainly progress in my world ;)
my girlfriend hit me this morning, while i was asleep, with: 'why do you
love robert hood more than jeff mills?'  all i could reply was "jeff mills is for the mind, robert hood is from the heart" boy am i going to get the piss ripped out of me.
