What happens when you take the bus to downtown Ann Arbor and walk around for a day and drink espresso and your kids get a special trip to the comic book store … without you … you, lady, get to spend an hour at Encore Recordings listening to dollar funk 12 inches and library music and Bob Seeger and a super fun John Peel session 12 inch 45 rpm of CUD.
AND … you find an issue of a publication titled Detroit Electronic Quarterly edited and published by Vincent Patricola. This issue is strategically placed in Tadd Mullinix’s special hip hop/electronic choice CD box. Of course, I’m going to peek in there, like always. That Mantronix tape is still there. Ha. The issue of DEQ is volume 2 from 2005. It features Jeremy Ellis, Kevin Saunderson, Carlos Souffront (!!!), Adult, Punisher, Zo!, and an independent label spotlight on Mike Grant. AND … it has a CD with stuff on it, including Jared Wilson. So I got excited.
DEQ was a great publication with some pretty cool interviews, including an excellent one with Charles “Electrifying Mojo” Johnson.
I’m busy making big plans in the middle of these here woods. I’ll be sure to let you know when things get more planned out. Right now I’m getting excited about the Movement festival happening in a few weeks, mainly about the after parties. You’ll be hearing about some good ones here very soon.DEQ, Vincent Patricola
