Must Read-Underground Resistance
Posted October 28, 2007 11:48 pm (about 4420 days ago)In terms of disclosure, on paper I’m one of their DJs/producers, but I left Detroit for Oakland to teach high school. While I still DJ at times, I decided to focus on teaching rather than producing mediocre tracks that don’t even touch the product of Gerald Mitchell, Mark Flash, and others in the UR camp. For that reason I stay under the radar of most and some of the guys with the label don’t even know who I am. Having said that, I count UR manager Cornelius as one of my closest friends and Mike has had a huge impact on how I view the music industry and various social issues. Music and personal friendships aside, I continue to be drawn to UR’s message. Take a read for yourself!
Tti…Speaks to Underground Resistance
UR manager Cornelius Harris AKA Atlantis and producer/DJ Dex talk about new happenings, the thought process behind the label, and the role of the internet on identity.
Mike Banks interview
This was undoubtedly the best interview that I’ve read with Mike, who drops jewels on Detroit music history, UR’s current projects, the role of music as a catalyst for change, why he doesn’t like to show his face, his influences, including Marvel comics and the rock band Rush, The Electrifying Mojo, baseball, masculinity, Detroit’s morgue tours, being a role model, and just about everything else. There’s some deep stuff. Again, READ THIS.
