Canada dissed??

Misstress Barbara, one of my fav djs, is touring Asia. In all her promo bios on the flyers and such, she is marketed as an Italian techno DJ from Italy yadda yadda, without one mention of Canada anywhere - which is essentially where she has gained much momentum (if I am not mistaken). Whether she knew about this bio, I am not sure...

"Misstress Barbara.Italy

Italian-born Misstress Barbara's creative involvement with music began when she picked up the drums at 12. But she traded in her drum kit for a pair of decks in 95, got her first booking in 96, and has since gone to rock dancefloors all over Europe, North and South America, and Asia. Her varied musical taste has led her to play many important clubs like Twilo and Tunnel in New York, Rex in Paris and now Zouk..........she's considered by many as the first lady of techno."


Graham, Tripwire, Hawtin, Stadius etc all came over to the Far East and the Canadian Flag was splashed all over their respective flyers and bios... Even in Roger Sanchez's bio on his flyers in Asia, Montreal's Stereo is mentioned alongside with those NY venues.

Granted MB is Italian, but shall we as Canadians take this as a dis? A step back for world recognition of Canadian djs? Just wanted to hear some reactions....

haha...a tread
compared to what? you?

big fuckin :rolleyes: to that

I don't think it's a diss, I think the person writing it made a mistake. She was born in Italy... but she's one helluva proud Montreal-er, that's for sure.

so her bio doesnt talk about her days in montreal.

she didnt say "canada sucks ass", shes just more proud of her heritage is all. No problems here.

yeah seriously Misstress represents her Montreal heritage very adamantly. I am sure if you showed her this link, she'd be confused as well.

ps she fucking owns :D

I've read her Bio before, and it was almost verbatem of what was posted above, but with all the Canada stuff in it:confused:
hmm, maybe the writer IS dissing Canada, but I don't think MB would.

What about "British born" Richie Hawtin? In all the interviews I've read seem to avoid mentioning Canada like the plague...

This just puts into perspective how relatively unimportant Canada is on the world scene. We're just too new and too small (population wise) to be noticed.

But we'll get there!!

You seem to classify everything that doesn't strike your fancy as trance, just so you have a "justification" when you rant on about how awful it is.

ie "She played trance, and we all know trance sucks. Therefore..."

(...just what I've noticed.)
