Episode 74: A-TRAK + ROCTAKON: The Disconnect On this week’s episode, the fellas recruit the help of Hip-Hop Guru @SheckyGreenLV (founder of the Source Magazine, Former Talent Director for XS Nightclub) to discuss the recent uproar on twitter between @Atrak @Roctakon addressing the struggles of working class DJs in open format. The crew makes a call to @Atrak (14:35) to further expand on his tweets and touched on the changes in nightlife/music after @DJAM passed (23:46), the vast difference in pay between certain headliners and openers (39:06) and the Agents/Managers ultimately having a hand as the “nexus of power” between the clubs and the DJ’s (53:27). They later make a call to @Roctakon (1:06:41) to explain his dilemma with Atrak’s tweets and why he questions the Canadian DJ’s intentions (1:14:50). Roctakon also speaks on @Crazearoni coming to Atrak’s defense which ultimately escalated the exchange on twitter (1:37:16). The crew wrap-up both calls (1:58:44) and discuss the recent Michael Jackson documentary on HBO “Leaving Neverland” (2:11:51). Crooked summarizes his experience last week at the @BeyondTheMusicRetreat organized by @DJcity and @DJVice (3:17:39).
