MASSIVE POSSE USA

MASSIVE MAGAZINE WAS A RAVE ZINE BASED OUT OF MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN. AS A 12-YEAR OLD KID I WAS ABLE TO CATCH THE TAIL END OF THIS PUBLICATION IN THE LATE 90’S JUST AS RAVE CULTURE WAS STARTING TO DECLINE IN WISCONSIN. THERE WAS A PERIOD WHEN THE MIDWEST RULED THE RAVE WITH LARGE SCALE EVENTS LIKE EVEN FURTHUR, WHICH IS PROBABLY MOST FAMOUS FOR HOSTING THE AMERICAN DEBUT OF DAFT PUNK. I THINK MY FASCINATION WITH THIS SCENE/TIME PERIOD PARTIALLY STEMS FROM THE FACT THAT I WAS JUST TOO YOUNG TO BE A PART OF IT (I WAS 12 IN 1999). I REMEMBER HANGING OUT AT MASSIVE RECORD SOURCE AROUND THAT TIME, A SHOP THAT WAS OWNED BY THE LEGEND DAN DOORMOUSE. MY DAD WOULD DROP ME OFF AND I WOULD SPEND TIME LISTENING TO RECORDS THAT DAN WOULD PICK OUT FOR ME. THIS WAS A PRETTY IMPORTANT EXPERIENCE IN SHAPING A YOUNG JUICEBOXXX! I WAS EXPOSED TO A LOT OF NEW STYLES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THAT STORE, THANKS DAN. YOU CAN READ OLD ISSUES OF MASSIVE HERE, I RECOMMEND IT.
