Those of you that know me, will likely know that I am normally not one to complain.
But a series of shite Mixmag CDs led me to have a rant one drunken evening back in 2010, and the world has changed significantly since then.
I give the history leading up to the monumental event of my complaint, and the proof of my influence:
August 2009 – Tiesto. Shit CD.
But – May 2010 featured a letter, from me:
OK, it took a couple of months to sort out, but one assumes these things are arranged in advance.
June 2010 – Joris Voorn – So-so CD.
July 2010 – Fatboy Slim – Shit CD.
October 2010 – Sebastian Ingrosso – Poor CD.
December 2010 – James Zabiela – OK CD.
March 2011 – Mark Knight – Poor CD.
June 2011 – Shy FX – Not my cup of tea.
August 2011 – Above & Beyond – Not my cup of tea
October 2011 – Riva Starr – OK CD.
And of course, my thank you letter:
|Rotate it yourself lazy asshole – I fixed Mixmag, what have you done?|
So, you can see that every month was the same old shitty Annie Mac electro-gash every single month until I wrote my letter, then there was increasingly more variety and during 2011 there have been some rather excellent CDs.
Plus the magazine actually started covering underground house/techno too, and not just electro-gash.
So, feel free to buy me a drink or ten to celebrate me fixing Mixmag.
