Just finished "Sons of Anarchy." It's okay. The first few seasons aren't very good but the final few pull out some surprises. It also stars the dude from "Byker Grove" so there's that.

[EDIT] I should add that it being filmed not far from where I live made it probably more visually entertaining for me where it might bore others to tears.

Incidentally do we class playing Traktor/Serato with 2 time coded discs as playing vinyl? I know cunts who do.

Well they're as stuck in the thickets as those who think playing all vinyl makes them good.

I do find it interesting that many labels that were once vinyl only suddenly branch out to digital once they've established themselves (garnished enough "buzz").

I also find it funny that a good number of the vinyl only DJs out there aren't even old enough to remember when vinyl was the only option. While I do have love for records, let's not pretend they were in any way convenient. They were a fucking pain in the backside. Back-breaking in their weight. Pressings were often shit. Once the record is scratched or warped it became as good as useless. No way to edit out that naff vocal or shorten that Belfunk-esque 45 minute breakdown. 85% of the people who worked in record stores were absolute cunts of the highest order. Yeah, it was fun in countless ways. But many of these vinyl enthusiasts have a bad case of rose-colored nostalgia.

Nice mix here if you're into the style of Innervisions, Objecktivity, Connoisseur, and the like.

Marketing scheme. For whatever reason, "limited" now equates "good" or "interesting." Personally, I have no problem with labels releasing vinyl earlier than digital. Growing up with vinyl, I appreciate the culture of it all. But I'm not about to pay Phonica or Discogs prices for music anymore. I would even be fine with a once-a-year compilation so I can have access to the music (not fussed with having anything before anyone else). But many of these labels probably know that their entire existence is wrapped up in the fetish of the unavailable; oftentimes the music isn't actually that good.

The first track is fucking criminal and that's why it will never be a contender. What the fuck he was thinking when he used that ill never know. Completely fucking shit.

Could've been the last track from the DJ before him.

I think it would be great. The EM always seems to bring the best out of people. Personally, the cassette tape recordings of these mixes was pretty much the only way to hear this music for years, and being on the west coast of the US those were even hard to come by. It was a vital part of this music (and many DJs) extending beyond the locales (and their residencies). I'll obviously stop short of "don't forget where you came from" as Diggers talents at smashing a dance floor were and are obvious, but many current fans might've given up if it wasn't for the EM always providing top-notch mixes. It's a legacy brand that might not exist if it wasn't for Diggers and the same might be said in reverse.

That's exactly how I'd want every set to end, with a slightly disinterested whimper.  Well done.

lol!

I've posted this one before, but if you want an all out rave on, you can't beat this in my humble. The vid is also spondiscious. Get me?

I think we were all friends with the guy at the 1:47 mark at one point or another.

Some really great tunes here if you like the recent Kompakt, Pachanga Boys, Barnt-style stuff.

Holy fuck!  Would love an ID for this.

It's been ID'd as a new Tennis track. Not sure if it's an original or a remix but it certainly is a smasher.

Their Rinse shows have always been good so I'll give this a go. Shame I can't even understand a fucking thing they're saying otherwise a tracklist might be a possibility as they usually say what most of the tracks are.

That lyric bit is just too much for me. Cannot stand it.

A slow-moving cinematic masterpiece. The same year as "No Country For Old Men" to boot.

Good mix here. Loses the plot a bit towards the end but alright otherwise. Enjoying the track at the 12 minute mark if anyone has an ID.

The entire Giegling back catalog. They've released some lovely music but seem to be in that poncy vinyl only scene.

Should've just gone the Hooj route and packed it in after the music no longer made sense to them.

just finished the first season of treme.  it's a bit heavy on the the musical interludes, but quite good so far.

Check out "Show Me A Hero". It toes the line between The Wire and Treme in both quality and in content. As with much of Simon's work, it can be a bit preachy, but I enjoyed it immensely (not as much as The Wire but that's pretty much impossible).

Agreed. Floating, noodling, Burning Man nonsense. Burning Man turns everyone into a cunt. Hopefully Lee can step away before it's too late.

..that's either really lame trolling, or you genuinely have no fucking clue what you are on about. Have heard some very varied and rather excellent sets from Burning Man, most recently the Hoj one (who I'd never heard of before) which is chunky and bass-heavy, very different to this in style.

Regarding ADID/Burridge, some of the individual tracks are really well-made, there are always a couple of standout moments. As I said, thought the Emix from last year was really good, and I've enjoyed the Robot Heart sets from previous years, but there's a definite 'tippy-tappy' style evolving here which is a bit lacking IMO

Being based in the Bay Area, we get beaten over the head with all things Burning Man. And recent years has seen the ADID sound becoming the de facto "genre" of choice for the Burner-types - ADID events here have basically become Burning Man light. I personally cannot stand what Burning Man has become and I cannot stand the types who attend it these days; whether it be tech bros looking to network, the Silicon Valley elites with their private camps and personal chefs, or the Europeans treating it like techno tourism. I used to love Burridge's taste in music but now it just feels too closely tied to something I strongly dislike. The sound is just too "ahhh yes remember the sun setting over the Playa?" for me. No edge. No funkiness. Just floaty "I'm soooo mellow" nonsense. Not that I'm jaded or anything...
