It will be interesting to see cancellations stats on some of the high profile DJs out there... some seem to do it more often than others.

I think Digweed would rank very low on that list.. I don't even recall a canceled event by him but I am sure he has a few.

I don't remember him cancelling but I remember him having to cut short a set because he had bad flu

he had a cut short a set at stereo in montreal once as he had a set in toronto that night. it was noon so we forgave him.

another great florantine joint is la giostra

Back on topic

I wouldn't have called it hipster either, hipster to me is stuff like Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, bad folk music and obscure and slightly overrated electronic stuff like Actress.

The Smiths have always been too big to be called 'hipster'.

didn't say that the smiths were 'hipster', the intention was that so many people loved the track when it was released, was on so many top 10 lists but now it is not cool or it sucks because it was over played.

over played? definitely. still a great song though.

he had 400 or 500 followers on the goo

how soon is now is the perfect example of hipsterism at its finest. it is a great song, was admittedly overplayed and now everyone hates it for that, including morrissey.

fuck it, it is still a great song.

Air France have had a terrible track record, that was one, Toronto being another about 10 years ago.

not counting everything else that goes on at AF like when they ran into a delta crj at Kennedy a couple of years back. Everyone knows to give a wide berth when they are in the neighbourhood.

Are we really judging DJ's by their interviews? The music he plays is great.

His set at Output here in NYC was the best I've heard in years.

How can so many of you be filled with so much hate for people you've never even spoken to. Lighten up.

Hold on a minute mate, so you cannot say Dixon comes across as miserable in his interviews unless you know him personally (or have spoken to him)?

Bit like somebody saying you cannot say De Niro was rubbish in Last Vegas unless you can act better yourself.

a bit like the old classic GU review "The night sucked, music was rubbish. granted, i wasn't there but i know"

all i know is that i got to see him spin a brilliant set at stereo in the last 12 months and would be glad to see him again.

i couldn't  care less how someone comes across in an interview as any statement can easily be manipulated to come across as the writer wants it to. honestly, how often do germans come across as warm and fuzzy?

As for the family issue etc. As someone who spends more that his fare share of time in planes. It is a slog not matter how much you are paid and how much you love what you do.  even singapore airlines sucks when you are in a 6 hour ground stop at FRA due to engine issues and you are facing 8 more hours into JFK and then another connection home.

one of the issues was they timing that you speak of. MTV in the 90s was all "new country" commercial pop and rock and not a lot of service was paid to the niche groups.

other than that, there is no real concept of national radio in the US. Unlike all the BBC1/essential mix types, that did not exist in the US during the 80s and 90s and mostly doesn't now outside of internet radio, which is  so fragmented.

radio is local market only and if you want to know how it really works, read "Hit Men: Power Brokers & Fast Money Inside the Music Business". it is actually a great read but shows how corrupt us radio was.

that which we listen to did not have the money to compete with the major labels that pushed product at the time in the local markets.

But Aural does have a point in that New York, Detroit, Chicago, Miami, Boston, LA and San Francisco all had great scenes, but they centered around the cities and it was not a national thing.
