This question is not designed to cause controversy or is it to put anyone down , but it is something that interests me a little . I dig a wide range of music , but as some may have or have not gathered , I like some great old music and enjoy some real deep underground classics . I really get off when dj's pull away from the "30 same classics" . And pull out somethin a little special . And I know that New York/NJ has a good respect for classics as well as Chicago - even though I have not been to Chi ! - been told etc .
I'm wondering does New York/New Jersey or Chicago
have events/nights where the people are getting this ? .
It's just that it seems that in the early late 80's early 90's a handful of dj's were pulling out some dope records maybe a bit different/altenative - or just taking a little more risk or beliveing "this is a dope record so I'm going to play it" . Or setting a vibe with their selection so they can introduce something a little special .
I think that a few of us here in the U.K are trying to push the envelope more as we don't hear those fast/slow spiritual jazzfunk/fusion/reggae joints so much .
Harv yawn.. was a don at doing this and to be real honest I have not heard to many dj's play as deep and I've heard some of the best imho .
Is this a dying thing because when the dj takes those risks or just goes with the feeling the crowd feel it at least imho .
How do you all feel about this , and for those who have been going out from that period why do think that time has changed ? .
Peace Alex .
I know people who vistied both cities late 80's/early 90's that heard some real crazy records . was that just a golden period ? .
