Unforgettable night. Digweed's set was incredible - 6 hours of peak time tunes, some of which were classics. Too tired to give any detailed impressions, but this was one of the best gigs I've been to. Danny was superb, the venue was excellent, the sound, the lighting all gets top marks.
Outstanding mix. I've been waiting for something like this for so long. Slovenia was incredible but since then nothing really that powerful was released. This though is another level. Makes me wonder how many more similarly amazing mixes Diggers has in his drawer, most of which we may never hear. Like that XOYO May mix, or Fabric 2010, etc. Can't complain though last years Transitions shows were probably amongst the best with plenty of awesome live mixes from the man himself.
King Unique smashed it at MOS a few months ago. Pig&Dan were too awesome at B16, I was screaming and dancing like a lunatic along with everyone else who was there. Earlier that year Village Underground:
Then I remember Diggers destroying XOYO in May, 2012 with that tune:
Everyone in that club went mad, not to mention the letthemusicplay track he played earlier in the night. Another one I remember was Sasha at Matter (2010?), when he dropped 2 million suns. Plenty of moments like these. It's just harder to enjoy the music when you're fighting for space and air along with 1000 other people in a small sweaty, steamy, little room (yup I'm thinking of Fire).
Had a good listen to the three CDs and I have to agree that it's one of the best in the series. The track selection is superb, not a single dull moment. CD1 starts with a bang, CD2 goes even further and CD3 is incredible - quite enjoyed the techno portion after Ame's remix of L'Esperanza. Can't wait to start my next listen.
Very frustrated. I downloaded the album last week, but I was waiting for my trip home to listen to it and now when I checked my continuous mixes, CD2 and 3 are 5 minutes each! And there is no option to re-download!
Until beatport flags them for re-download again, I'll have to listen to CD1 on repeat I guess.
I have the Alpine MusicSafe Pro earplugs and for £20 they're OK. The low frequencies are alright, but the highs are not very clear. Despite that they are very comfortable to wear and a lifesaver in any club/bar environment.
..the separate deck displays look great, CDJ2K-style, I'm amazed it's taken so long for someone to do this
I guess there is no reason to have it in there, considering that your laptop/tablet is right in front of you. It's not something I'd pay the premium for. I don't see the appeal of these big expensive controllers anyway.
For a second I thought Diggers is quitting DJing. My heart skipped a beat. The forum was a nice place and there were quite a few good music threads. Yeah there are a few people making negative comments, but I always saw that as harmless.
Bought it on digital, but I'm waiting for my new speakers to arrive so I can blast it properly. Browsed through some of the tracks and I couldn't find a bad one. Top package from bedrock as usual. Cannot wait to hear it this weekend!!!
Digweed did a monster set. Dark and hypnotic. Just the way I like it. We spent the night in room two next to the main one, and it was fantastic. Lots of space to dance, good sound. The main room was inaccessible until 6am and even then it was a sweatbox.
Overall a very good night. Those who complain that there weren't enough women should go somewhere else.
