This now popular electronic music
magazine (pronounced 'Accelerator') began in 1993 as little more than a twelve-page underground publication dealing with Seattle
's local rave scene
. Now based out of San Francisco
, CA, it enjoys a place among many other "alternative
" magazines on chain bookstore
shelves all across the nation, and even overseas.
Generally, it features the common fare of reader input, sometimes incisive critique having to do with some of the more recent trends
in dance music
, and interviews
with both mainstream
and independent electronic artists alike (e.g. Aphex Twin
, Dj Shadow
). It tends to be targetted at both the music maker/producer
as well as the general consumer.
