Gonna be playing some of this era stuff at the weekend with my old Crasher resi partner in crime. So i'll throw a few up definitely. Where to begin, where to begin... 

This.

I'm sorry Ben, but being registered on a forum three months - alias or not - and trying to head making any fundamental changes is hardly going to wash with the core community from any angle.

In fact whoever's doing it now should be heading this off. Passing the torch so to speak.

Well as someone who's got years of experience elsewhere all I can offer is the advice that you will need to put some time aside to do it everyday. Some days it can be pretty easy, other days or when there's more traffic than normal you may need to watch it like a hawk. I ran it on my own for a period and even had to do it on holiday. So maybe a separate, single mod for the smaller forum sections and two for the general might be more beneficial. If anyone needs any tips etc, i'm happy to pass them on. You just need some good communication and cover.

That said about communication, it also depends as much on moderation as it does on members communicating any issues to them as well. So when some mods are in place, there needs to be a re-review of the processes and rules of the forum. Obviously not turning it into some sort of online Stalingrad. Those who may be at fault but also did't want to see it go, will hopefully appreciate it too and think differently.

Fair play to John really. He could have not given it a chance, and pulled the plug pretty swiftly. This place has been integral to the Bedrock brand as anything else, and it's an asset that needs to be protected positively.

They're possibly one layout change away from their own Serato/Traktor contender.

But until they stop partnering with the former, you won't see it.

I run/have ran a forum of similar size, posts and members for many years now, also music related.

The thing to do is keep them moderated, keep an eye on things, listen to and respond to any big noises made by the members, new and old. There's always a status quo to keep with these things and it can be a tricky balancing act at times as I full well know.

Would be a shame to see it go for many reasons. It's a valuable and concise source for music and like minded conversation, whatever the subject. Forums are few and far between, but those that perceiver are of great value compared to the smash and grab nature of social media these days. The original social networks if you will.

Inevitable comment time. Sasha played the best i've heard in him a while, missed a chunk of his set finding my friend who was over from OZ, but was still in the Glade hearing it all - super rammed that night. Headed Circoloco after that, where previous fun and then Tale of Us made Hawtin look dire. Really dull. Tiga played a total blinder Sunday night as well in the Beat hotel (third time we went to see him). Quintessential acid and a great way to end it.

The rain made getting around a bit of a struggle some days, and really flagged in the mornings this year, usually up and at it even after a standard Shangri-La night of carnage, but spent less time there anyway (possibly why haha wink Although we did get to see Bez totally off his tits giving it some Friday night in his tent, and Noel Gallagher - however that one works!

Missed a few things I wanted to see, (left Jon Hopkins earlier than we should've really, he was mint) tried a few other acts for a change and still had a great fun as ever. Swerved Kasabian as saw them in Leicester so caught Massive Arttack. They were outstanding.

I'm burnt to shit, had to work today, and now got the Libertines this weekend and Benicassim in a fortnight. Stead few weeks ahead.

I had an older mix pulled from my account, was my most popular from Godskitchen, and couldn't upload the same file again. Even though it started with a re-edit of a re-edit.

Let's go for the full house. A rousing performance if that...

So my flatmate of going on three years produces this fantastic radio show she airs fortnightly on Futuremusic.fm and in all that time we've never even had a single decks session together. So when she came to me with the idea of doing it for an episode of The Landing Zone we thought it'd be great fun.

Two hours, some totally unplanned music picks, some questionable mic skills from me and a few drinks later we put this out for your listening pleasure. It's got a nice exclusive from Dorisburg on there too! Really enjoyed it!

Sounds promising - why put up such a pathetically short clip though?

Here you go, we played it in this

We didn't deserve to lose that today. Enjoyed my first Wembley visit though and the buildup.

Hopefully we'll do what Leicester did and build on the squad for next season, going one (or two) better.

Just need to see who we lose in the fallout from it. Hopefully no-one.

big fan of this Eulberg fella

The flip as well... awesome

I don't think there's anything Ananda's touched in the last year and a half i've not picked up. Firm favourite.

Think i'm going to start with that tonight now it's out.

I still get to play a lot of this stuff at my night and whenever I do a vinyl classics set. Any excuse is a good one for me!

Turns out my flatmate picked up a copy of it as well. She's got damn good taste in music

Was a mint set on the night itself. Mint night in fact. Had been looking forward to it so much and didn't dissapoint.

Just need XPress-2 and Quivver to sort theirs out now and it's happy days

It's a great watch

I always wondered what the point was of places like Ministry having 6 CDJ 1000's in a row, its not like anyone would use all of them at once, some DJ booths look more like a space ship cockpit, like Si says, keep it simple

It's good how it can accommodate different setups for different Djs (mixers etc) so allows all the setup to be done before opening. It's an absolute beast now with the current setup.
