I really didn't want to do this but i really have to set some things straight after i see those staff members making posts in a LOCKED topic.
Yesterday we got our show cancelled because of a listener drop during the show... This was something I and Dan had talked about before and we agreed to switch hours between me and Simon because he is playing more techhouse/house tracks in his sets than i do and we didn't want some dj's to complain about this.
Anyway, our show was cancelled anyway and i start discussing this matter in the thread. Not only in the name of me and Simon but only in the name of the fans of our show who didn't really understood why this had to happen.. we got opposed by some exagerated facts and the topic was closed. I strongly suggested Dan to open the thread again to let other people and listeners give their thoughts about this and maybe suggest for solutions.. But the topic stayed locked.
When i woke up this morning i some new comments in the thread by staff members of course backing Dan in this matter. I can't blame them. But what i cant except is that those people are saying things that aren't true. Suddenly we get blamed we did a house show, which clearly we didn't, and we also get blamed to be arrogant people, thinking we play the best music there is. Are we arrogant people when we want to diverse from the same trance you hear on the radio all day? We didn't play house only. My sets were a mixture of progressive and trance every time. check out some tracklists for our shows.
2 months ago i played this tracklist on Perfect Balance:
01. Solarscape - Zen (Sunrise Intro Mix) [Solarscape]
02. Masque - Moon Bathing [Carica Revelation]
03. Josel - Digiboy (Dj Tarkan & V-Sag Remix) [Toes In The Sand]
04. David Shaw - Arabian Nights (Flash Brothers Remix) [Cold Harbour]
05. Terk Dawn - Barent Blue (Marninx Pres Monogato Remix) [Well Mixed]
06. Vincent De Moor - Fly Away (Cosmic Gate Remix) [Cloud 9]
07. Frase - Module One (Original Mix) [Eve]
08. Karybde & Scylla - Cocoon Vibes 2007 [Moonrising]
09. Darren Tate - Echoes [Mondo]
not a single track has something to do with house in there. In the same episode Simon played this:
01. The Factory - Couldn\'t Love You More (Fedde Le Grand Big Room Mix) [Toolroom]
02. BSOD - Even More Sketchy [Play]
03. Justin Timberlake - Sexy Back (Armand Van Helden Remix) [Jive]
04. Jonas Steur - Level Up [Black Hole]
05. Oliver Giacomotto - Gail In The O (John Aquaviva & Damon Jee Remix) [Definitive Recordings]
06. Bolier & Coenraad - The Mighty Ducks [Intuition]
07. D. Ramirez - La Discotek [La Musique Fait La Force]
08. Mark Norman - Blikken Machine [Black Hole]
09. Rockers Hi-Fi - Push Push (M.A.N.D.Y. Mix) 
10. Joris Voorn - The Deep [Green]
that isn't a complete house set either, but way more of a progressive tracklisting.
That's why i want to set some things straight. People who listened to our show know that this wasn't a complete house shows.. yet they know there were some housy track in it from time to time and those people could appreciate it. We got 8 pages yesterday before this matter started. Why would there be people in a topic if they aren't liking it anyway?
But this was not really what i wanted to talk about. It's more of the backstabbing that hurted me. When the show ended we had a poll of 7 people who voted 'Massive' vs one person who said 'pretty bad' and another saying 'not my style'. Still we had 77% of people who voted for massive. We didn't ask anyone to vote, those people really wanted to vote themselves. Suddenly the topic gets closed and today I see some people of the staff all backed Dan and voted - Pretty Bad and Not My Style. That's pretty lame if you ask me. If a topic is locked also staff member should be not in it. But they all voted pretty bad and now it looks like almost no one didn't like the show. I'm 100% sure not half of those staff members heard yesterday's show. Why does a topic have to be closed in order that the staff can say some things about us that aren't completely true? It's like being in a tribunal but having to defend yourself without an advocate, that's how i feel right now. I thought a discussion about that would be a good opportunity for AH to see what other people think of this. Remember all feedback is good for your progression, even negative feedback. Instead we got the listeners being shut up and Staff members replying we think our music is the best there is and that we are being arrogant, doing a house show.. while clearly we didn't do a house show. It was a diverse show with progressive, house AND trance.
I also heard some people went complaining about us. Now if those people have the guts to say it directly to us instead of backstabbing us, we would be able to live with that. I heard from Dan people say i'm a bad person.. I really would like to know who's thinking i'm a bad person in here.. All i wanted to do is to say my thoughts.. and being honest with everyone all the time.. I guess people don't always appreciate honesty. The fact that our show was cancelled really hurted. People suggested to move it to an other hour so they could still listen to our show but no hear was given to that. But what hurts the most is that we got our mouth shut up and in the meanwhile staff members have been able to say things that weren't really true about us, giving the listeners an impression we were arrogant and played solely house and voting 'not my style' in order to make it look like no one liked the show while we had 75% of listeners who voted massive before.
Am i a bad person when i like to speak the truth? Am i a bad person because i really have difficulties with being backstabbed, cause that what it feels like for me..
I would really like to know people's opinions about this...
