Generation Bass update


Generation Bass update!

Here’s an update about the weblog activities surrounding the non-western dance program at ZXZW!

The most visible infiltration of the Dutch media by Vince the Prince (the man behind the blog) was last month . He sent an cd filled with good music to the Queen of England, and was rewarded with a nice letter by one of Her Majesties personal assistents. Read all about it here:

Generation Bass hits Dutch press

Posted using

This morning, when you were reading the best and biggest newspaper of The Netherlands, De Telegraaf, you could have seen Vince on page 3. There was a photo and a bit of text on the letter he got from the British Queen (we told you yesterday about it, do you remember?).

Also, when you were still asleep, Vince was called in the radio show of Giel Beelen on 3FM.  Check it out here later today. The phonecall is in the 3rd our.

Cumbia’s the next big thing! For the best new music, always check, you’ll love it!

DJ /rupture, Cumbia Detective

Piracy is the new creativity. Influential DJ, producer, and label head Jace Clayton digs deep into the world of digital cumbia bootlegs to find gold. Since his mixtape heard ’round the world, Gold Teeth Thief, dropped in 2001, Clayton (a.k.a. DJ /rupture) has become well-known for telling us what we should be listening to. For the past couple years, he’s been knee-deep in cumbia and Latin beats. At this short XLR8R film he teaches us about cumbia and takes us to bootleg CD shops in San Francisco’s Mission District to sort the wheat from the chaff—hardly an easy feat in the world of digital piracy.
