Abstract (Document Summary)

Clubs ranging from Hollywood's Aerial to San Diego's Smile bounce to techno music and several Southern California import shops-including Street Sounds in Hollywood, Prime Cuts in West Hollywood, Record Reaction in Long Beach and AC&S Records in Chula Vista-specialize in techno and house music.

[Barry Weaver] says this approach is especially popular with Detroit techno acts.

The Prodigy's "Charly" (XL Recordings import). This is yet another techno jam that juxtaposes power and innocence, with a hard, fast beat and a chorus sampling a child who recounts, "Charly says always tell your mom before you go outside."
