I have noticed just lately that there has been a lot of calls be certain people to boycott events.
Now im not having a go at anyone, especially not the guy who wrote the Boycott skelter post. The other day i recieved an email from a bloke who was calling for people to sign his petition against Slammin Vinyl.

His basic point was that Slammin Vinyl are all about making money and never give any up and coming DJ's a chance. Also that they take the crowds away from the smaller nights about. While a did agree with the bit about up and coming DJ's being ignored or put in a small arena all on their own. I did agree that putting on one or two up and comings on at the beginning of a night in the main arena is a good idea.

However i do feel that trying to get people to not go an event or to sign a petition against an event is silly. If someone has a problem with an event then contact them personally and they will probably deal with it.
A prime example of this is Raindance who had to cancel an event at the last moment, they encouraged people to phone them if they had any problems etc. On the slammin Vinyl web site it a section for comments and suggestions and they do listen to it. They dropped MC Smilee because people aired their dislike to his style.

If u have a problem with an event, let the promoter know in person not by a boycott or petition. Boycotts and petitions will dicourage people from goin to events and them people might actaully enjoy it. After all if people didnt they wouldnt go and they event would end.

Sorry to go on like this but i felt summin needed to be said, there is too much negativity in the scene these days, especially in the UK.

Totally dude. What i'm thinkin is, i bet top dj's like slipmatt, brisk, mark e.g etc all started off in their bedrooms or attics learning to mix & scratch. I bet ya they got their first gig @ summet like helter and were upcoming dJ's too, just like you said. I mean, im 12 and i'm gettin dexxx for xmas so i could easily be quite a good DJ because of my age. But i bet i wont get a look in before everyone else barges in! (Its the same every day ha ha ha)

WE REALLY SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I BET A GOOD NO. OF YOU WANNA B DJ'S, SAME WITH ME.

REBEL!!! REBEL!!! REBEL!!!




each time i see your face your smile is shining through I cant help the way i feel and its all because of you

You can't except a promotor to put new DJ's in the main room, you have to prove yourself, DJing in your bedroom and DJ using a massive sound system is really different and if you don't get it right you screw up and there is nothing worse than a bad mix into a killer track. But again everyone starts somewhere, There is two quick ways to get playing at parties if you are unknown.

1. Put on your own parties.
2. Help out at other parties (setup and such), for payment ask for a DJ spot.

The fact that Helter Skelter is only doin hardcore in manchester means that it is impractical for me to go. However u seem to have missed my point. I was trying to say, whats the point in telling people to boycott events. If they dont like them they wont go, no need to tell them and start a hate campaign against them.

If Skelter are so evil (as u are trying to imply), then why after they left the scene did it nearly die. They were one of the very few events which stuck with hardcore when all the other promoters dropped it (remember dreamscape).

I just think its out of order that people slag off promoters when they devote a lot of time to the scene. Dave Prattley of HSO gave up 10 years of his life to promoting parties, he did not have a holiday for 10 years. Now he is working in conjunction with others i can fully understand why he wants to take it easy for a while and spend time with his kid.

Give the HSO team a break.

Dj e-clipse- Listen I hardly think that posting an opinion on a bulletin board on the internet means that I am conducting a "hate campaign" against Helter Skelter. Get real mate! A bit of debate is healthy I think instead of people not questioning things.
