I rekon that for Traktor, two NI X1 MKII would be best suited.

Why 2? To control 4 decks?

You can set cue points on the X1. The white 1 button is what the software tries to set as the first beat on its own and it is usually right. but you can always use the touch strips and set a cue.

I have one at work that I muck around with, but to be perfectly honest, traktor is a total bore to mix with. It's like a half step above just playing shit in itunes.

For the money, you aren't going to do better than the Zone 23. Hit buy and get to it.

It's on junodownload now for cheaper, too. Fuck beatport. They get nothing.

in january we went back and started at the beginning again. was possibly more enjoyable than the first time around as you could relax a bit and not concentrate for fear of missing something out.

it was also quite cool the amount of times little things are mentioned that relate to incidents in a couple of seasons time that you never notice the first watch.

grant - it's escapism at it's finest. also pretty harsh / horrific in places too (not just the gore but the subject matter). plenty of times I have heard people say they hate the show because of some of the content.

The Mrs and I did the same thing, but she came up with the idea on 2 April. We hammered our way though it though. Now we are paralyzingly behind on our other shows. Might be time to prune a few.

But you are right - other than the whole shock factor of shit going down, being able to pick up all the nuance and foreshadowing that is in the story is great. And, as usual, watching story arcs unfold quickly is much more interesting.

Like Breaking Bad - SOOOOO much better watching it back to back to back (to back to back, really).

are we going to be disappointed at 9pm tonight Ryan?

Well - not going to give anything away - but this episode kind of just set up where the characters are currently. There wasn't much action. There is an interesting scene at the very end since you are into Melissandre smile

I was never much one for the whole "fantasy" genre, but Game of Thrones is totally different. Yes, there is magic and dragons, but the really interesting part is the politics between the families. What house is loyal to another, who is double crossing, etc. All the politics involved and whatnot. They do a great job developing characters and giving them (for the most part) very intricate story arcs.

I guess I'll wait it out till it makes its way to Juno. I hate giving beatport any of my money.

Really wish bedrock would just go the Bandcamp route. I try and buy as much there as I can.

Worth the US$18 price tag? Seems steep. Why don't I get rewarded cost wise for buying a full release?

Agreed, fellas. Just damn good music. I don't need to compare it to anything he's done or anything someone else has done. I'm just enjoying it.

I'm not typically a no questions asked Sasha sympathiser, but I personally thought Scene Delete is fantastic. Lossless audio pumped through my in ear monitors, relaxing with a beer - it sets a very nice mood. It is elegantly and thoughtfully produced. The mixed version is really well done. It is sexy and somehow solemn at the same time. The mix builds up tension and gives payoffs like you'd want from a well-programmed club mix.

I do like downtempo music though. It has always seemed like modern day classical music to me. I know it isn't for everyone. I do feel like there are a lot of people that are criticizing this release because it is Sasha doing something other than dancefloor oriented music.

it's ok but have heard the genre done better by others

e.g. Black Dog & Aphex Twin

FSOL, Theivery Corp. Boards of Canada, Ulrich Schnauss, John Hopkins. Sure, there is a list of artists that do downtempo "better" - a relative term, of course, when evaluating art.

I find Scene Delete to be a hybrid of downtempo and some of the breakbeaty tracks Sasha has done for years. I feel like it will stand the test of time.

Nice to see Renaissance back in the mix.

Seconded

I'll be there for 21/5

I'm sure I'll get it just for collection completion purposes, but I'm honestly not expecting much from it. Art Department is very different since Glasgow's departure. I saw them a few times in New York together years back and it was fantastic, but when it was just Jonny White it is boring.

Absolutely brilliant night of music in the box. I can't imagine there's many complaints other than from those who didn't turn up. There was just an amazing buzz of energy in the crowd.

Staff was friendly. Fast entry. Free, fast WiFi. Drink queues weren't out of control.

It was $200 USD. It had a full open bar, catering, Funktion One sound and a great lineup. I'd say a good deal all things considered.

Hopefully it will be a little more interesting than the Art Department Fabric mix.

Just got mine, U.k. based.

Packaging is impressive, one thing though whoever did the booklet should be sacked, Just look at the date on the center picture. Didn't know John had a time machine to take a photo @ Stereo on 25/Oct 2016!

There is ALWAYS some kind of type-o on Bedrock releases. Always shocks me for some reason.

Sbando suggested that maybe the last two hours from Montreal? Fuck it, that'd also be awesome. And topical.

would love this actually. the only thing i could find wrong with montreal was that i wanted the last bit too!

I got my copy yesterday and I have to say it is absolutely sublime.

I really hope this isn't the last Live In. Digweed really has this formula down to a science at this point. Great music, lovely package.

All of them? There's only three and you like 1/3rd of them or 33.333% recurring.

There are 4 if you count Fundacion

So that means... if you carry the one.... statistically speaking, you're still a cunt.

I've been invited to a Superbowl party on Sunday and don't follow the NFL at all, but I intend to hit the sports section Saturday night so I can feign interest while I yell things like, "Wow! What a fucking hit that was from the Pittsburg Pirates defensive goalie!" as I beat my chest and eat a hamburger the size of Oregon.   I think we're going hunting for possum after we're all smashed on Bud Light after drinking three each.

Just keep saying "Cam Newton is a lock for MVP" and "This has to be Peyton's last rodeo". That should get you through the night.
