I'm not, I'm gutted that lot bought into it, it was a great service that looks like it is going to be ruined.

As a retailer I seriously don't want any change at all, we could feel at the end of the last term for labour the banks getting itchy feet and wanting to reduce lending (risk) and people slowing down spending, plus the fact the terms we were getting from EU suppliers were getting worse and worse, lower credit limits and some wanting Pro Forma from UK companies.

Over the last few years we, I mean everyone in the industry I speak to, have said things are feeling much better, banks more relaxed (but not being silly) customers buying more regularly and better terms from EU suppliers again.

We are meant to have our annual review with the bank in a couple of weeks, but they have pushed it back to after the election, which I think says how twitchy they are getting.

Labour getting back in would be a fucking disaster for the UK economy overall.

Have a listen to this mix, 7 years old now but still listen to it when the sun comes out and the BBQ gets lit.

Yeah sorry, as I posted above they have said the desktop player is down at the moment.

Mine was obviously cached.

I don't get a d/l option for the 'web player' on that page - just a 'play now' option which, when clicked, goes to the browser based player in which there is no import playlist functionality that I can find whatsoever.

Sent two emails to Tidal's 'support' address - still not heard a fucking dicky-bird...

I imported a playlist from Spotify with 256 tracks on it, and only one didn't import, some odd Aztec Camera track, it was a playlist for my wifes 40th a couple of years back.

How does this work then?  I've signed on for a free week long trial and am massively underwhelmed so far...


I used this...

Then copied the http links into a text doc and use the import feature on the mac player.

The player is under the download section of the main menu on their web page, may need to be logged in..

Only an idiot would pay double the money for better quality sound.

Sounds the same to me.

It's on that basis that I'll mostly be sticking with Spotify.


If you can't hear the difference of course you would be an idiot to pay more, Tidal now makes me think Spotify is a waste of money.

Fine on my phone, fine on my Sonos crap, fine in the car, and to be fair fine with dance stuff, but when listening to proper music it is just lifeless.

No, Spotify have said they have no intention of streaming at any quality beyond 'shite'.

I have been using Tidal for a bit now, excellent service, and now Jay-Z has bought it out I am hoping it will get better.

I imported a playlist from Spotify with 256 tracks on it, and only one didn't import, some odd Aztec Camera track, it was a playlist for my wifes 40th a couple of years back.

Also seems to have loads more on there of the sort of music I like, and the Bedrock releases are on there, Live In.. sets etc. Balance sets.

Spotify just sounds so shit, so although the family used it a lot I never bothered and still bought CDs, now I am using Tidal I have stopped buying CDs.

Also, they are about to start streaming Meridian's MQA files, which sound sublime. Hoping Meridian release a decently priced decoder for it.

Thats why you have to buy the adapter, Apple are always finding ways to con people out of money

But what about when you have power and a usb hard drive and controller?

It suddenly looses the 'sleekness' with a load of hubs and adapters everywhere.

I don't mind a new port, but at least give us two so you can power it and plug something in at the same time.

I can't see the power and usb adapter anywhere?

I was using a 2010 Air with ableton and Serato and loved it.

Swapped to a 13" 2012 retina Pro and like it, but sort of wish I had bought another air.

This was the fist hour of a party I played the last weekend in Feb at a mates do, used ableton and my macbook. He was having issues with his CDJ set up so I played for just over an hour while he was messing around setting up.

I will post a track list later, all I know is finishing with that Sacred Cycles remix, which I just love.

Cleaned up the levels a bit and whacked a cover on.

Listened to pt3 last night, great as always Simon.

I never really plan sets or mixes.

I tend to listen to the new tunes from beatport etc. on a Sunday night, usually end up with around 50 in my cart, then listen again and get them down to around 20-30.

Then listen to them in bed all the way through (well as long as the clip is) and ditch the ones I can imagine I would get bored of, try and get 12 per hour.

Then drag them into iTunes and flick through them, no longer than 10 mins or so to put them in some sort of order.

I then know what order I can play them in, only time I tend to swap is if they are not in key when cueing it up, so I will grab the next track instead and hope the one before works with that.


The only mixes I have really planned over the last 5 years I can think of, was the Silicone Soul Collection mix I did, my take on Involv3r, and my Zoned Out mix I did recently.

That doesn't mean I haven't gone back and done it again if there is an annoying track or transition in there. But I don't plan them.

I have never looked at the key, surely you can hear if it works or not?

How does knowing the key help anyway?
I wouldn't know if c goes with g by looking at the key, but I can hear if they work together.

I seriously doubt most people's first encounters were with women who were that intoxicated.

Most of us know that if a woman you are with is too pissed to even speak,you should be making sure her friends get her home safely instead of thinking about jamming one up her.

I disagree. I reckon most couples first sexual encounters are after having alcohol, it often takes a meal and a couple of drinks to let your inhibitions go when you are with someone new.



Who said she was too pissed to speak?

All the girls were talking about this and every one of them said thinking back there was at least one time where they have been drunk enough to sleep with someone and regretted it deeply, and known that it was because of the alcohol, but they all said that was a drunk mistake, but looking at this case could have easily called it rape.

The point is, the judge said that she was too intoxicated to have made an intelligent decision, he therefore has raped her. I think his argument is they were both drunk and he thought it was a joint decision.

What would have happened if he had gone to the police the next morning and said "I woke up this morning with a naked gorl in my bed, I don't remember anything about it or giving consent therefore I think I was raped." ??

My wife said "If you get yourself so pissed you don't remember then you have to put it down to a mistake, but you can't class that as rape."
