Enjoyed the Australian GP. Really happy to see Vettle win it. Looks like we have a great season in the works.

Just do it Dermo. But make sure to check Killing Them Softly and For What It's Worth first, if you haven't already.

Just watched Austin and a bit of LA. He kills it. Been a long while since I've laughed that much.

Was it a live PA of material by Barnt or was he DJing? He's a quality producer, but never heard any of his DJing sets.

Chymera and Ame did a live pa. Barnt did a DJ set.

Music festival run by my buddies over the week. Got to see Chymera, Barnt and Frank Wiedemann of Âme.

Chymera was decent, kinda has that proggy sound.

Barnt was pretty out there and I know he's popular with the likes of Comer and Millsy which is why I was excited to check him out, but dude couldn't mix for shit. His tune selection was alright, but the set was all over the place (played an accappella that went "Bang the Drum" with a minimal beat for 10 mins at least). His opening track was great in fairness, but all downhill after that with a few decent tunes here and there. Tad bit overrated me thinks. He does surprise because he's going through a lot of genres, I'll give him that.

Frank Wiedemann of Âme was magnificent. Tore the place a new asshole. Definitely recommended if you get the chance. One of the best sets I've heard in recent years.

The place I was interning at, booked Damian Lazarus just when he was becoming big in the US after the 2005 Miami WMC. All vinyl set, really wonky and different compared to the standard dance music coming out at the time. His mixing chops were spot on as well. At the time, his sound reminded me alot of the Craig Richards Fabric 15 mix. His Rebel something something mixes (pink one especially) back then were good fun, if a bit out there. Also put out that fucking awesome James Holden remix of Safari.

Glad to see him becoming a bit of a legend now even though he seems to be a bit of a clown.

Meow Meow is huge with all the millenial kids here in India. It's fucking everywhere. Generally I'm all for experimentation, but fuck that, it really doesn't sound like fun and the come-downs seem to be horrific.

I mean you'd go to a prog night and you're going crazy and gurning like a mofo, reaching for the lazers. You go to a deep house night and you're basically bobbing your head, checking out whatever few women there are around and drinking a gin and tonic.

It boils down to BPMs imo.

It's been a long time since I've busted out any of my tech house vinyl from back in the day - but I think it was usually around 122-126, while prog from back in the day was at about 128-132. At the time, i think you could say tech house and deep house were in the same boat.

The problem with tech house is it got properly bastardized by the likes of Mark Knight, John Dahlback and Funkagenda, after it was originally championed by H-Foundation, Terry Francis and Eddie Richards. etc

In terms of deep house, i think your innervisions and diynamics etc brought down the BPMs to about 115-120 - which is when the term deep house started getting thrown about more often. And now techno with melody is basically prog.

The main difference is that prog tracks are laid out in a certain way and the drum patterns and kicks are very generic. I find this sounds very dated.

The melodies/stabs that Dixon would play over say someone like Guy J, would be a lot more trancier and lessy 'fluffy' also

There are definite synergies between prog and the innervsion-esque sound but the latter makes the former sound dated imo.

That's only my opinion though.

I think the dated part comes through thanks to the high BPMs. Most prog is at 125-128, while innervision generally simmers at about 120, give or take.

Well. Rhouses. Myself and a few expat friends are talking about going. But unfortunately for you its going to be Bali. Its a lose lose for me though. Both countries support the death penalty for recreational enjoyment (not small boys).

Yeah it's gonna be a bit weird without the cheekies or the devil's dandruff... but I see myself getting sloshed, enjoying the music and then heading out to get myself a nice meal at the end of it.

Let me know if you change your mind, would be cool bump into you.

Have you seen "Meru" ghost?

Made for a very good watch.

Blindly booked tickets to singapore and the ultra festival.

Then I saw the rest of the line up and regretted it immediately. hahaha. Naah, it's going to be worth it, even if it means the set will be just about 2 hours. If it's really good maybe I'll trek it to Ibiza.

Come on Dermo let's meet, I know you're a singapore fan and it's not too far from australia. We can do a session at Jumbo Seafood as well.

Singapore and Bali for me.

If LA is happening, will try to plan around that.

Trying to be honest with myself, but definitely Comer's starlight express numbers were the absolute worst.

Some fucking cunt spoiled Logan for me, but still got misty eyed at the end. Brilliant movie, not even comparable to Deadpool,'t which I thought was really overrated. a solid 8.5/10.

Regarding Marvel, the last X-Men movie was atrocious and I can't even remember how the previous ones were. I do like all the Magneto stuff with his origin stories, though. The first Iron Man movie was great, but the rest have been shit. Haven't watched Captain America or Thor. And Avengers was decent.

Dr. Strange does stand out in fairness. Would love to watch it on some shrooms, but I'm getting a bit too old for all that shit.

Former co-worker who works there just brought me a slab of two-year old Gouda cheese - heavenly. Obviously asked for some white widow seeds, but he was passing Dubai, so had to make do with the cheese instead.

Sneddon deserves a shout, but it's been a long time since I've come across a fresh link to one of his mixes.
