Ron Carroll described the obstacles faced by early house artists trying to get radio broadcasts, even in their own towns, saying that radio stations and the general public “viewed house as an inferior form of music. You have to remember that music is promoted by someone’s interest and ego. So house music was seen as the misfit child, the gay sound––at the time, they didn’t want it on the radio because they thought it was bad, they thought it pissed you off. Drugs. They have thought of all that, which is why this country has never locked itself in there. While Europe, you didn’t just see it in a cult of people – bottle service clubs, regular clubs, they would play it. When I was growing up, you had to find it.

Detroit techno has had movement since the turn of the millennium, so why has it taken Chicago house so long to reach the important (but arguably fundamental) milestone of having an event like ARC, which seeks to amplify the creators of house music in a globally competitive festival setting? Amid longstanding systemic barriers, particularly for black artists, in the American music industry, including the struggle for the broad reach and perceived legitimacy that radio play offered in the 80s and 90s, Chip E offers an analogy for how all the innovations this house gave the world could have been taken for granted in the genre’s home country.

“I always tell people about Ms. Fields cookies. If Mrs. Fields was your mom, people would be like, ‘Oh yeah, your mom makes great cookies’, but people who buy them are like, ‘These are the best cookies in the world. But for you, because you’re Mrs. Fields’ child, you’re like, ‘It’s just cookies. She bakes cookies on Sundays. It’s not serious.'”

By attending ARC, you experience various qualities of the music and the culture that surrounds it, which started here, near these festival grounds: the ethos, the sound and the message spread through the world, and after being reinterpreted, flipped and sampled, they reverberate through the city at this event. The truth is, now that house music has taken hold so deeply among audiences around the world, many of whom have taken it in myriad new directions, there’s still a bit of Chicago everywhere. No matter how far the sounds themselves have strayed from the 909’s swinging patterns and sultry, powerfully emotional vocals, listening to house music in any form, audiences pay homage to what emerged from Chicago, whether he realizes it or not. Many ARC-billed Chicago DJs have been hosting their own Chicago parties on a regular basis for decades, disregarding the fleeting waves of mainstream attention that cyclically brush the genre and the city.

VANCOUVER — Seven people have been arrested and a criminal investigation is ongoing after a disturbance Sunday night by fans attending a music festival in east Vancouver.

VANCOUVER — Seven people have been arrested and a criminal investigation is ongoing after a disturbance Sunday night by fans attending a music festival in east Vancouver.

Fights broke out inside and outside the PNE Amphitheater following the sudden cancellation of main act rapper Lil Baby in the final hours of the two-day BreakOut festival, said a statement from the Vancouver police on Monday.

Hostile spectators caused extensive property damage to the amphitheater, surrounding park and neighborhood before order was restored, police said.

A statement from the Pacific National Exhibition says about 4,200 guests left the venue after it was announced that Lil Baby would not be performing, while about 1,000 people “turned their disappointment into a violent outburst.”

He said the result was “hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage” to PNE property inside the Amphitheater and Hastings Park, where the site is located.

“We understand there has been additional damage to property outside of Hastings Park, to the community and to local businesses. For this, we are extremely sorry to our neighbours,” the statement said, adding that the CWP is determining how to support businesses. or residents who have been affected by the violence.

The police estimated the property damage at “thousands of dollars”.

The PNE said it would work with the BreakOut festival promoter, Timbre Events, and their insurer, to ensure the damage is repaired quickly.

const. Tania Visintin said the seven people arrested were being held for breach of the peace, but the criminal investigation is likely to take months.

“Although this investigation will take time, we will pursue criminal proceedings against those who participated in this violence and destruction,” its statement said.

The hip-hop and rap artist whose sudden cancellation has been blamed for causing the disruption issued an apology via Instagram early Monday.

Dominique Armani Jones, who performs under the name Lil Baby, said he had been “pushing hard” for a few months and his body was “completely off”, causing him to rub his part of the event.

“I sincerely apologize (to) Vancouver, Canada, the BreakOut Festival and everyone who attended,” Jones wrote.

“I owe you guys a lot and will definitely make it up to you soon.”

The PNE statement says Jones left the room after saying he was not well enough to play, a decision that was made immediately before his scheduled appearance. Staff on site were not informed of the change until after he left, he added.

The organization thanked the police for their quick response to the violence, saying it prevented the situation from escalating.

The PNE said it planned to carry out a “full investigation” into the event.

Jones’ debut studio album, “Harder Than Ever,” was released in 2018, yielding the Billboard Hot 100 single “Yes Indeed,” which he recorded with Drake.

This report from The Canadian Press was first published on September 19, 2022.
