An interesting post I came across from a fellow Facebooker.  This process is what revolutionized the entire DJ persona and his or her connection to the music business.  I missed this when it originally aired, but you can feel the roots of club nation stretch from the studio mixdown, onto the dark reaches of the dance floors, right up to the marked divider at the record stores.   All dance music labels followed this pattern: play, promote, track, release.  Enjoy it.  You might see one of your drunk uncles or aunts, or maybe even grandparents.
