Radio: Underground Classics Vol. 1 (Sep 2nd, 2014)

We felt that it was time to go back to the roots which Ghetto Tyylit is based upon. The underground sound that we all fell in love with in the 90's, the records for which we turned the world around to find and that greatly inspired us in our own music, and that created joined musical efforts, friendships and links to the rest of the world among fellow music collectors and makers.

Obviously it is impossible to summarize it all in two hours, especially when that time is shared with four guys. The first two years of our radio show we played mostly old stuff, since it was hardly ever played on any radio show on Earth (that I know of). It is definitely important to keep up with new music, but going back 15 or 20 years, it feels like you're telling a story, teaching history.

"Underground" in 2014 is so much different than it was 10-20 years ago. I'm not speaking sound-wise but collector/dj-wise. Internet. It's all there now, accessible by anyone. Before you could hear some artists only if you had their record or if your friend had that record dubbed for you. You don't need to seek for records in order to hear someone's music anymore. I'm not saying that's bad, but it takes off the feeling of exclusiveness a lot. Music just spreads so quickly now – a song/artist that was a rare discovery yesterday, could have 50,000 hits by tomorrow. Vice versa, a cassette of 100 copies of course has a limited spread and stays rare forever.

This show was mad fun though. Of every song we played, there was so much say, such great memories to share, so much emotion to vent. Amusingly and quite predictably, we all brought in a lot of the same records. But it was interesting to hear what song of an album each of picked and why.

Me, Iwere, Ameeba & Dumb played one song in turn, going back-to-back for the two hours. Underground Classics Vol. 2 on the next show.
