Good interview with a good dj/artist
It was added through out the whole thread. Check my posts.
SmSh: So, in other interviews you talk a lot about international DJs… DJs from Europe, wherever, biting on the early Detroit Techno sound and repackaging it. Is that something you still see happening today in a major way?
DJ Bone: Yeah, major way. They might not want to admit it. Well, they piggyback and as soon as they felt they were at the pinnacle, they drop it -- drop the association. Everyone was describing their sh!t, “it’s Detroit-esque”, it’s “Detroit-lite”, it’s “Detroit-inspired”. But as soon as they got to the point where they thought they were the sh!t, then they dropped it: “I’m my own person, I like to sound different...”
That’s the same mthrfckr who was coming to Detroit and taking notes, watching people, know what I mean? fck that.
And it might come across as harsh when I say it but it’s been like that..."
I believe thats what I was trying to get across.

It's way easier to play like Omar S does, when you have people like Bone around you ...
