DEMYSTIFICATION #2, $10, 8½” x 11”, printed, 64 pgs.

I’m a little late to the party here, as this one came out back in September last year, but it’s so good that I had to mention it. Demystification is nuts! Ambrose and Paula love hardcore, as reflected by articles on the Air Max 95’s place in the scene, Warthog’s photo tour diary, and reviews of different camouflage patterns. This isn’t to say that the zine’s focus is narrow, though. Interviews with deep house musician Dreamscape and installation artist Diamond Stingily add breadth and depth not normally seen in hardcore zines. The writing throughout is funny and inviting, and the full-color printing is gorgeous. Rewarding and inspiring. –Michael T. Fournier ([email protected])
