I'm digging the Plastikman EX album Zackster, for some reason I thought of you when I listened to it.

Hardly a spoiler there BF.

Yup, agree Yant, that was a good episode of Walking Dead. Already preferring this approach compared to all that prison post-Governor malarkey from last season.

In all fairness, she's nailing those cue points like a beast. Think she might know a little bit more about mixing than say, Nina Kraviz.

Also, both pipes.

Work with India's version of Amazon, in their marketing division, taking care of social media. Have been with them for four years now... going strong!

That opening scene must have had you by the balls Yant... but yeah, it's a bit slow and a tad bit bizarre with the electro soundtrack playing through. The whole thing has me very uneasy, which is a good thing I guess.

Watched the first three episodes The Knick, liking it, but really brutal and gory.

Can imagine a weekend in Bangalore with Rhouses as your wing (wang) man is up there as well, if i'm honest.

Haha. Could probably show you a better time in Bombay, raging to full effect and all, BF. Always welcome to spend a weekend with me in Bangalore, though I was a bit perturbed I can't expect an epic fish and chips meal at what is now your imaginary chippy. sad

Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend anyone live in any Indian city, unless you're really looking for a pseudo cultural spiritual 'oh i just read shantaram' type experience. The infrastructure is excruciatingly frustrating, there's a shit load of traffic and nearly all cities are polluted as fuck. That being said, standard of living is cheap. Know a bunch of mid-level Goldman Sach Brits who have actually chosen to commit to 5-6 year stints in Bangalore - two of whom recently got married to locals. I also figure they're just putting in the time because they're saving a shit load of money with a salary in pounds while they're living like sahibs with their drivers, maids and cooks in their penthouse apartments.

Excerpt from ‘Cantona: The Rebel Who Would Be King’: Just inside Sunderland’s half, harnessed by Ord and Ball, he (Cantona) set himself free with a stupendous double feint, somehow found McClair, who instantly returned the ball to him, which, still running, he chipped from 18 yards over the head of his former Nimes teammate Lionel Perez. What is extraordinary is that Eric found a way to stop without stopping, slowing down imperceptibly to compose himself and brush the underside of the ball with his bootlaces, sending it to the only spot where the rushing ‘keeper couldn’t reach it. The celebration was almost as memorable as the goal. Eric, affecting a haughty inscrutability, did nothing but straighten his back and puff out his chest, a Roman impersonator savouring his triumph: all that was missing was David Beckham holding the laurels above his shaved head. Then Cantona broke into a beautiful smile, as if to say: ‘Did you see that one? Did you see?’ How could you not love such a player?

While I'm thoroughly enjoying the last season of Boardwalk, it does sort of feel like a rushed epilogue and the flashback scenes don't really do much for me.

Yup, the opening episode of Walking Dead's new season was brilliant... the closing scene was haunting.

Not a big fan of the DC comics TV shows, but so far, Flash and Gotham seem to make for a decent light watch.

Been doing a Top Chef marathon too... Season 9 was brilliant, good place to start if you haven't watched the show. Top Chef Masters is great too.

It's a bit yank-centric, but The League is hilarious.

Love it... some great tunes on this, eclectic without losing that twisted Bedrock vibe. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole album. Perfect for some after hour power if you ask me. Would be cool to see some muscular remixes in the pipeline. Think there's potential for a great live act too - would be nice to see what Muir and Diggers can do on the fly on the back of this album.

Stand out tunes for me were "The Traveler" and "Live Off the Grid" and "Damned by the Flesh"... want some remixes!

And when you're paying in rupees, it makes a difference. You end up saving a few bucks on the DJ mix/unmixed packages too.

Yeah, Radio 1 is a tune for sure. Love the way he mixes in the Getter Go track. Great transitions in this set.

Sick (in a good way) mix. Quirky groovy vibes. Tech house exactly how it should be.

How can you give Utopia the big one and hate on Lost?

Just finished up with Leftovers, great show... do not miss.

Also just got into the Matt Le Blanc/Joey from Friends show - "Episodes", highly recommended, good blend of british and yank humour. Tamsin Greig is such a honey, well done England.

How was your nawty weekend with the ex Rhouses?

Was decent Ed. The festival was so-so, they had the food counters way too close to the dance area, so that matched with the relentless Madras humidity made the entire place stink of one massive rotting sheesh kebab. Slam were fucking horrendous, I'm way too old for banging soulless techno but I have a feeling Zackster would be all over that like a bad rash. Kinda disappointed with them, they've been my heroes for over a decade, have so much of their stuff on vinyl but they literally made my brain melt. James Harcourt was good, surprisingly.

On the bright side, the hotel was brilliant... the free breakfast buffet was epic, had a humongous pool right outside my room, literally walked out and jumped in. The ex was extra loving and caring. It was fun hanging out with her entourage as well, haven't seen them for three months and nothing was awkward. The Indian DJs were massive, highly recommend Blot!, Kohra, AudioUnits and Oozeundat and I'm not just saying that because they're my mates.

Check out Blot, they're easily my favourite right now and the guy is hilarious: https://soundcloud.com/blot/digdeeper
Use to write a column too: http://www.sunday-guardian.com/artbeat/ … onic-music

Oh yeah, and the wing wang and happy stuff was quality, but I need to get on a juice cleanse and detox this week. Can't rage it like I used to but you can bet I was a proper stallion. smile

Magda all the way. Ellen Allien too.

Chloe Harris nailed the muscular prog stuff back in the day.

MJC is ok, remember everyone wetting their pants about her DJKicks mix, hasn't aged well at all. Tried to listen to it and it bored me to tears.

iTunes files are pretty similar tho from the waveform. you can't say that about mp3s.

Quite right... The Apple codec is far superior in handling low/high end frequencies compared to the shitty Fraunhofer mp3 codec. 256k m4a's will sound a lot better than 320k mp3.

The new mastering trend (making tracks overly low end heavy) that seems to have emerged over the last few months makes mp3's sound muddy...

Perfect. Just what I wanted to hear. Thanks!

A big thank you to the Bedrock family, it hasn't been an easy year for me on a personal front but I always feel at home here on the forum and it's been a pleasure knowing the lot of you as long as I have.
