That is one sweet setup. Is the DJ stand an IKEA hack? Think I saw one similar but my IKEA console is too narrow for 2 cdjs and 2 technics

Yes, it is a bunch of ikea pieces that I put together. I have a really bad back, so i need my decks to be fairly high, so I had to get a bit creative. It turned out well - it looks decent and it holds my gear just right.

I quite like it. I was stuck in the doldrums of Pioneer mixers for so long, this one is a treat. Really sounds great and I like the control of the rotary over sliders. It has a ton of great connectivity options as well which makes it versatile.

I ended up swapping out my old DJM-2000 for the MP2015, the original CDJ-2000s for the mk2 version of the XDJ-1000s, and my whole monitoring setup from KRK Rokits (8" tops and a 10" sub) to Adam Audio (7" tops and 10" sub) and I couldn't be happier with the result.

this was mine. it was terrible, but it got the job done.

Guess we have to get one more posting in here before the place burns down.

Isn't this track like a year old already?

Was curious to watch this but ended up wondering what its point is...

It never addressed/answered, why did DJs stop being unseen figures in the corner of a room, playing other people's music and start becoming centre-stage 'Performers?  And who the fuck ever sanctioned that as a good idea...?

Well known to be an Oakenfold-sanctioned idea... which is why he's just a Vegas act now.

If the rest of the show is half as good as that Xpander video is, then its 25 quid well spent. Absolutely brilliant. I'm sure being there for one of the shows was incredible.

I know these types of live sets have been done before, but this is exceptional.

The CDJ-2000 Nexus also support FLAC and ALAC lossless files as well as uncompressed WAV and AIFF. There isn't a good reason to continue to buy mp3s other than cost or if you aren't ever going to listen to your music on mid-range to high end speakers/headphones.

Were it anywhere but MOS.

No you are not, Aural. Stop making stuff up.

Not sure why i'd bother making it up.

The stopwatch was started when I took my computer off of line power. I made it to 6h22m before I needed to go to sleep and my computer still had 3h 20m left on the battery.

I had the screen brightness up to just over 50% and had 6-10 browser tabs running with auto loading pages, the stopwatch, Soundcloud streaming happening the whole time, along with Mail and Messages running.

New MacBook Pros going down a real treat I see. Record numbers being returned on account of getting only 3-4 hours battery life when Apple have quoted 10.

I had the issue with mine until I did a few SMC resets. Now it is getting 9.5-10 hours with regular use. People tend to make a huge fucking deal about things that aren't that big of a deal.

a colleague has the new google phone and loves it so think I may be investing in one next year.

I've been an iPhone user since it came out and I've had literally every hardware version except for the second one and I can honestly say that the latest version of iOS is the most refined it has ever been. I don't personally have any of those issues, but I do always buy the largest capacity model and I manually manage my device and what is sync'd with it. Not for any reason other than that it is my preference to do it that way and I'd do it no matter who made my device.

That said, I think that the new Google phone is amazing. I don't have any hangups spending a bunch of money on a device that I use every single day for communication, entertainment, directions, etc. If I am going to rely on one thing to do so much, I want it to be the best. But were I not totally engrained in the iOS ecosystem, I'd probably buy a Pixel because it is solid all around.

It still amazes me how heated the phone/computer debate is though. As polarizing as politics.

I bet you could get a Note 7 for a bag of beans.

The logo is really good. Let's hope they play some places us grown folks can get to.

Bandcamp is my fav place to buy music. Love that you can get any format and that you can DL as many times as you need.

I try and buy at BC first before anywhere else. I also seem to grab a fair amount of physical media there as well and it is nice that they add that stuff to your digital collection.

I'll be interested to hear what you think of the PX5. I'm sure it will sound great.

I'll buy anything that has C-Jay originals on it. That guy is the best thing to happen on Bedrock in ages. I was hesitant to buy the Backslider release for some reason and now it is one of the most listened to mixes of the past year for me.

I've listened to him since the mid 90s. Then the radio station in my hometown dropped syndication so I was off of it for a few years and picked back up when he moved to satellite.

So many people think that his show is still filth and strippers, but it really has morphed into so much more. He does the best interviews of anyone.

HEY NOW! Fuck Bobo.

Military Intelligence

Jody Wisternoff played it on his latest Anjunadeep podcast along with the new Justice Track and his remix of Chicane - Saltwater that has yet to be released. Definitely need to get that one!

I think I prefer the one with the bird in the green shirt. She can share my nachos.

Private video! BOOOOOOOO tongue

At this point does Digweed really need the essential mix? He can release music directly to his fans through Bedrock and sell out of 1000 units and well into secondary pressings to every major retailer and digitally as well.

I'd reckon that Tongy needs Digweed more than Digweed needs him. Were I in Digweed's position, I'd keep the ship pointed in the direction he's going. He has total control over his brand.

...I found every track in this thread to be very nice indeed, nice summer sounds. Breaks mix on the horizon maybe, Smashy? wink

I couldn't do a breaks mix mate - I value my Bedrock-street-cred far too highly to even consider it - imagine what might happen if I did...

No, no - breaks are the very worst work of Satan himself - distance yourself from them and save yourself while you can.

Yeah, definitely don't click his signature link big_smile

"Bedrock-street-cred" might be the funniest statements I've seen all day though!
