Let’s be honest.Going out these days can really cost you someone, and that someone is named Pretty Penny, if not Armina Leg. With the average cover in the city at 25 dollars, to listen to mostly the same boring lineups made of the same DJs (local or imports) playing the same popular songs all day at every one of them. If parties get more expensive there’ll be a different filter of who can attend. With what seems to be the heart and soul of the electronic music, the average fan, being ushered out, I am left to wonder how much longer the piles of cash can keep this electronic music scene afloat.
But nightlife appears to be recession-proof in Toronto, possibly because of our tech and housing bubbles, but I wonder if one of the most democratic of art forms, dance music, is turning into a prissy connoisseur enterprise that only the wealthy (or soon to be very broke) can fully experience and enjoy.

About the Podcast
The Groovetech weekly DJ mix is a 1 hour podcast playing Techno and Deep-House. Hosted and mixed by Andreas Marouchos (rouchos).
Andreas Marouchos (Short, Rouchos), is a DJ from Toronto. Playing Techno and House, Andreas has been a professional DJ since 1998, playing sets in four countries. He is also a podcasting pioneer, with live audio and video mixes stretching as far back as the last millennium. Despite the progress of technology, Andreas still collects and spins 100% of music on Vinyl as he believes that “putting a laptop between a DJ and the crowd seems boring”.
Since You’re Here …
… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.
Unfortunately I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t setup a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.
If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
