[ARSCLIST] October issue of Black Grooves

The October issue of Black Grooves has now been posted at
www.blackgrooves.org. As a tie-in to the AAAMC's upcoming conference,
"Roots of Techno: Black DJs & the Detroit Scene,"
(www.indiana.edu/~aaamc/rootsoftechno) we've devoted this issue to the
Motor City. If you're not familiar with techno, check out the two new
documentaries, High Tech Soul: the Creation of Techno Music
(specifically about Detroit techno) and Put the Needle on the Record
(about house/electronica), along with a CD by Interstellar Fugitives
(with Cornelius Harris) and an overview of the Women on Wax collective
(with DJ Minx). To round out the Detroit scene, we're also taking a look
at an independent release by rap newcomer Brandon Hines, the
posthumously released The Shining by rapper/producer J. Dilla, a bit of
jazz from violinist Regina Carter, Blue by Diana Ross, and last but not
least, the Complete Motown Singles and some rare Detroit soul. Also in
this issue you'll find gospel music by the Racy Brothers, a centennial
tribute to Josephine Baker, the Smithsonian Folkways' Classic African
American Ballads, and string band music by the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
We also invite you to visit the AAAMC's new website at:


We hope you enjoy this issue.
