john arnold (ubiquity records, usa) +http+
dog in the sky mix 2003
just a stones throw from toronto, detroit, as most of you must know, has had it's foot planted in musical history for years now. home to motown and the birthplace of techno, detroit keeps putting it out there. with a new crop of talent like kenny dixon jr., recloose, and of course john arnold this legacy is sure to continue. john's been releasing records on ubiquity for a couple years now and his new album 'neighbourhood science' is a reflection of the close ties artists in the city have with each other. the album includes collaborations with his neighbourhood pals amp fiddler and ayro who have each helped him out along the way. that's the thing i like about detroit, everyone seems to be willing help out for the cause and, in my experience, the cause has always been good music. now if only everyone could get together and open some good places to eat... i'm sick of dinner in greektown during the demf!
