I kind of thought this might be the case from my first post but didn't want to start rumours. All makes sense now; website down, no twitter updates, everything gone quite since mid August.

I'm gutted if Renaissance have folded - they're an established label who've been around for donkeys years, I release there have been some big names disappear over the past 10 years but is this really the end for Ren - surely not? It would probably be the biggest to go under.I looked back over the CD's I bought this year and the majority of been Renaissance, if they go my CD buying is going to go right down, probably to near nil.I only hope that they do something similar to GU back in 2003 (for those who remember) when just before Nick Warren's Reykjavik CD was to be release GU almost went to the wall, but somehow they restructured and came back. With regards to the brand it's their strongest asset, surely if push came to shove someone like MOS would buy them up - I just really hope this is a temporary measure to restructure the business and come back slimmed down. It would a real blow to the scene if Ren was to die off all together.

if what i've heard is right, their brand is not their strongest point. not in a business sense...

interestingly did anyone see mani's rant on twitter about peter hook? makes you think about what the papers are saying about boys from the past damaging manchester's current output of artists such as delphic cos they keep harping back to 'glory' days..

Yah, I'm sure if MTV came to you wanting to give you a shitton of money for a few hours work you would tell them to fuck off.

you don't see anything annoying about the fact that he goes on rants about not being a "dj"/hating "djs" and than decides to "dj" the biggest money making musical joke party of the year? and what's more he's being payed to play or should i say "remix" awful pop tunes. you're a complete fucking moron. if mtv are going to pay someone oodles of cash to dj these things i'd much rather see loopy up there.

and aaron, how could this possibly be good for dance? the scene took its worst turn back when the "everybody" comps were big, and sander was all about "taking dance to mtv".the last thing i'm interested in hearing are more dj/pop act guettaesque tunes being played on the radio. keep it underground imo.

hear, hear zack... the sooner they line their pockets and feck off so the 'real' music and EDM artists can break through the better...and on that subject pantha du prince and nosaj thing are rocking it..

Right, back from the island now and I can finally post some videos up. (connection in the island in general is pretty unreliable)

Btw, the quality of the mic in my camera is pretty poor but hopefully you'll get an idea smile

Having been lucky enough to spend a whole month in Ibiza, part working remotely, part partying/chilling/going to the beach....etc, I hope to get the chance to do it all over again next year. There's number of secrets that island possesses apart from the partying itself it's inmense. You have to go to Ibiza and see it with your own eyes.

And if you're around the island next year, hope to meet up at some point smile

As a side note, one of the funniest things I read on the local newspapers was that apparently a fair few brits felt off balconies in San An. One time, a local newspaper was interviewing the parents of one of those guys who was an soldier in the army, and the parents tried to explain that the reason his son had fallen was cos in England there're hardly any balconies and this kids are not used to them... How on earth can you say that with a straight face?


Cool elmo... smile wink

Could the media stop paying attention to these religious dickwads?

what I don't understand is why palin and this lot seem to be getting so much attention of late ?? is obama up or down in the US polls ? thought he was meant to be a 'revolutionary' liberal change for the states so what's holding things back over there? the economy or something else? or are these fundamentalists just on a campaign to destroy anything that is moving forwards or anybody of a rationale mindset in US...

I cant think of anything worse than people who aren't DJ's or top level producers trying to base their career round it. There is fuck all money in it and i dread to think what a pittance she gets paid for journalism which is read by less people than 'I like poking myself in the eye Weekly'. Its a nice little hobby for most who like to use it as an escapism from work and an ambition to create without financial reward. However, what i can't understand is polly's predicament now. Her sacrifice of living on a shoe string  was acceptable because she got to be an unwanted hanger on at some DJ bash. But now that her future isn't looking so rosy. i'm mean, this wasn't one of those Frost Nixon moments, I wonder where she's going to take her lack of skills next

y'know what man. you have just validated even more why I should write it exactly as it is. I haven't had any bother with anyone else, most people and their management are nice. Just this whole May thing and the consequent feeling of 'inferiority' that has been imposed upon me by that machine. I don't have to feel intimidated by people and why should anyone think they have the power to censor or intimidate people.
