His copies of "2 degrees" and "tune your bass" must be without doubt entirely fucked. Not ever heard him play a set since about 1996 without them in.  Doh!

 Laugh
He did actually apologise for the quality of some of the tunes in the mix when he delivered it to us.

Still it is bloody nice to hear a proper old skool vinyl only, one take mix. You don't get many in these days of Traktor and Ableton etc.  NERD ALERT!

 Slayer

I was talking to him at Lakota a couple of years back and he said he wanted to leave the records at home for the rest of his career but because sometimes there are no CDJs and sometimes there are no 1200s, he now has to carry more than ever - CDs and vinly!

Same as above
...
I remember sticking this up here months ago and people loved it! He's an incredibly versatile producer. Makes all sorts of random electro and pop stuff as well.

I remember you posting it and liking it. The key thing is that the INTRO makes it stand out. The DnB bit is really quite average for today, although good. People need to get back into intros and hooks again, I don't remember tracks that just start with a set of sci-fi film background effects and a 'dark' pad.

I'm not one to go for the techy stuff too much cause a lot of it is just covering old ground that was boring the first time (for me), I hate the harder so called 'jump up' skreechy noise, I am mostly turned right off by anything that describes itself as 'electro' in DnB (strangely, in some other genres I can tolerate this), but I have got back into DnB again through other styles.

The return of Good Looking is very welcome, now that it's more dancefloor orientated again instead of wishy washy chords for 10 mins with no real tune there. There is a killer EZ Rollers tune sampling 60s library tunes on Bukem's soundcloud, loads of big phat parp in it. www.goodlookingstore.com Some of the other liquid is pretty good at the moment too, although a lot is still a bit too drab.

I'm always on the look out for more oldskool style jump up, stuff with a sub in it as opposed to a skreech, gnarly stuff like Break or some of SPYs stuff, dubwise / ragga stuff, good liquid, some of that Dub Phizix vocal stuff, and there's always exceptions in the styles I find I don't get along with so well. Really, you've got to try a bit of everything.

Some stuff I like right now (and mostly liquid!)...

the versions of 'Sandstorm' and 'Warning' on that Slugabed mix are two of the worst things I've ever heard.

Really? Whilst nothing spectacular, they seemed fairly listenable and quite pedestrian to me, certainly more listenable than any skreechy dubstep tune.

True - 99% of this stuff is trash just from going through this thread, but the rest is worth listening to a few times at least. I guess what's different to other genres we know and love  is that even the good stuff is throwaway. Still, tell that to the kids that are into it now when they are 37 and they'll say those tunes are classics.

I never knew the TNGHT EP was considered to be a specific genre, I just considered it 'what people like Hudson Mohawke and Rustie do', and I like it. That Slugabed mix is alright too.

Just some of my favorite DnB this year. No decks or monitors involved this time, apart from one vinyl which went a bit wobbly in the mix. I'm waiting to see if Mixcloud will tracklist automatically. I'm wary of tracklists after having a mix taken down from my blog last year....

15  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: Ableton - is it any good? on: December 16, 2012, 19:13:33
(...) Some have complained about the audio quality (...)

I'm no expert but I've lost count of the amount of times I've heard people come out with things like "oh the Ableton/Reason/PerceivedNumptyDAW7 engine sounds a bit flat", which I think has more to do with different DAWs naturally delivering a different flavour of sound out of the box. Anyone who knows what kind of sound they want to achieve will work out how to get that sound out of their chosen software in time. Familiarity breeds niftiness.

As Blocko says, workflow is important. I've been meaning to move over to Ableton for production for some time, as I really like the way it handles loops. The most befuddling thing about it for me is the relationship between Session View and Clip View, and how you're looking at Clip View when you're using the mixer. I still don't really get Clip View, though I understand it's there so you can quickly trigger stuff.

Forget clip view, you never ever have to use it, the volume control is available in the session view too.

I'm also completely at a loss to explain people's problem with the midi side of it. Maybe that's cause I don't use a keyboard or any outboard kit any more and have always drawn things in with piano roll sequencing? It's the same as any other sequencer I've ever used. You draw in a selection and tell it to create a midi clip using the selection, double click on the new clip you've created and there you are - piano roll at the ready.

Don't remember seeing anything like this on normal tele before, it's got to be better than

You are too young for Hit Man and Her I guess. They usually went to a Ritzy or something but I think there are 4 occasions where they went to proper parties, first one being at the Hacienda at the height of the Acid House phase, which I didn't know had ever been done. The other 3 at the height of the Hardcore phase. Somebody posted a link to the first of those 3 on YouTube in the other thread about this.

Also, 10 years or more ago I remember going to a gig in Germany or somewhere and putting the TV on in the hotel to find a DJ playing really shit house / trance to a crowd in a TV studio.

Anyway...

Flash - WTF
Mac - Get out
A-Trak -Haven't watched much, just seemed the same as Flash with better turntablism
Eric Morillo - Reminded me of what Craig Charles looks like when he DJs but with a bit less energy. Some good stuff from what I saw, but a lot of that 'electro' nonsense too. Who was the singer that came on?
Soul II Soul - Finally some quality, loads of classics, some nice mashups, Caron Wheeler, another female MC who knew when to come in and when to shut up - Just all round great set from Jazzie B and co.
Horse Meat Disco - It was really annoying to have Sloth chatting all over Crystal Grass at the end of a fantastic set.

You need people to play to but you don't have them up in the camera, you keep them behind barriers away from the set and never have a camera looking out from the DJ booth onto them.

Did you buy the vinyl? I'm tempted.

Yes, I will also be buying the CD. Vinyl is 4 a side unfortunately and the cut of Brain Scan is at the end of a side, which is a shame as it's the rarest and most sought after track besides the exclusive but then it's more for collectors and listeners than for DJs.

Well worth getting if you can't get one of those Angel's Egg 7"s of Brain Scan, plus the exclusive 1990 proto-Jungle track Always Be There (Instrumental) which has the Jungle sound quite well developed for 1990. If you haven't got many of the early /// 12"s then it's got most of the best tracks on it too.

I'm particularly excited to read it looks like there is a Tru Funk / Sub Love album possibly following in the future. Well done Bristol Archive Records for getting these out there.

35  General / The Forum / Re: Disco Mix #1 on: May 11, 2012, 12:28:01

Nice BTW. I presume you put the edits in after the mix?

 

Yeah, I worked out the mix about half way before hand and made the rest up as I went, but there were few mixes that I didn't re-take. I've never had the chance to really practice this kind of thing, so it's a really nice challenge to get to the level where I don't need to do the same 3 second mix over and over until it works, and then edit out the 10 minutes of clang, stop, clang, stop Cheesy Then again, listen to a Levan tape and not every mix is smooth, it either works brilliantly, half works or just gallops. No wonder Nicky Siano uses Ableton these days Cheesy I would love to have a go doing it on those Thorens decks.

46  General / The Forum / Re: turntable suggestion on: March 14, 2012, 12:20:03
Guys and gals I really appreciated all the comments, but I'm now a little confused what to buy? I know it's all about personal opinion, but your comments have tilted my head one way, then another.

I haven't used a turntable since I was a kid and scratched the hell out of his Grace Jones LPs, never really knew the scientific amount of precision that goes into getting the right speed etc (my bad)

Now that I have a comfortable flat to play the vinyl I've bought, been bought and been given over the years, I just want a good looking, (not to loud), solid turntable to hook up to my amp and enjoy some vinyl.

Cheers all!

Yep, got a bit technical for your needs Cheesy

Maybe a 1200 is a bit out of reach price-wise when you're just looking for something to play records on, and you'll have to get a second hand one which may be difficult as they are largely out there in pairs for DJ use. You could just find a second hand Rega, with an arm and cart included, and go with that. Plenty of people seem happy with Regas. Dunno about pre-amps as I've never really had the cash to be bothered looking into it beyond what turntable to buy. The reason I would go with a Technics is that it can be modded to sound better but it has that stability that you will need if trying to remaster something from vinyl, which is something I'm interested in as a hobby.
47  General / The Forum / Re: turntable suggestion on: March 14, 2012, 11:48:55

Regarding 'the right speed'. All turntables play 33 1/3RPM. They just don't add the 1/3rd labelling. So they do play at the correct speed. This confusion sometimes leads to Technics owners nudging the pitch and playing their records too fast.

That's not what I meant, sorry. If you don't have a quartz locked direct drive, you will have much greater variations in speed. I'd put a couple of quid bet on every Rega deck being slightly different in speed, and none of them being that close to the correct speed. Get a 1200 from 1980 and a 1200 from 2000 with different circuit boards in it from the 1980 one and 2 copies of the same record (same pressing), you will be able to phase them with no adjustments with the pitch at 0. They will never be exactly the same speed, but they will be close enough to do that. I can't see that happening on a pair of Regas, not just because of the way they are designed getting in the way of setting up the phase, but even if they were quartz locked the belt drive adds another factor in.

Re : 1200s - They are built for Hi-Fi use as much as they are for DJing as they are Hi-Fi decks in the first place, just upgraded with the DJ in mind, and all you need to do is sort out the cart and tone arm (yeah, easier said than done on the tone arm front) Also, unlike a Rega it'll actually play your records at the correct speed (or as close you will ever get to the original lathe speed), which is rather important.
