I see that 5 Magazine have started writing in their review pieces whether the song was submitted to them as a promo. This was because they said they were receiving emails asking them how much it costs for coverage in the magazine.
Is there truly no end of corruption in this cesspit? As much as I love house music, the more and more I learn about the business side of things, the more I frankly detest.
As it happens, I think this is a good idea. So starting from tomorrow, if you see the words “This record was submitted as a promo”, it means that it was. If it isn’t? Then it wasn’t!
