First half looks great. Second half not really my style but I'll give it a spin later on today.

Anyone who holidays in their own country is a massive neanderthal.
Not sure where you live but there's more than enough places within these bounderies to have a good time.
Just to stop those that are going psychotic with rage from having a further nervous breakdown,here's on that's less than 10 years old......
Some of those are great. Especially that last bit with Thom Yorke.
2005 wasn't a good year for anyone.
Weatherall released his Fabric mix and, IIRC, Optimo released Psyche Out. Just because prog was awful doesn't mean everything was in the tank.
Has Mr C heard involved 3?
His new album is shit so I would assume he has.
Marco Carola fell out with fabric over his hotel ... sasha has only just stepped in.
If true, Fabric should do such things more often. Missing out on Carola and getting Sasha instead. Well then. I'm sure the club is just crushed; as in really upset. Should be a great night. I know he gets his fair share of hate on here, but he's still a fantastic DJ to this mind. And on that system. At the club where he knows he can't just mail it in. Should be a great night.
Haven't heard this yet but looking forward to it. Would love to hear him do more stuff like this. The guy has great taste in music. It would be nice to hear more from the "vaults" so to speak.

He's on BBC Radio 6 tomorrow night...
Could've picked a better picture.
"Drums In The Deep" from the new Cirez D release is pretty damn good. Sounds like one of those vortex 4AM monsters Digweed would punish the crowd with.
Thought this was going to be about Nickleback.
Great call. Totally forgot about that tune.

Was that a stab at "being funny"?
Balearic Mike has knocked out some very good mixes. Likewise with Lexx. The Balearic Social mixes on Soundcloud are also good. I'm pretty sure both of the aforementioned put out mixes for them. And the DJ History board is ground zero for such things.
I'd have more respect for Hollywood if USA lost just once.
I'm sure they're just devastated.
Always. The term "legend" is thrown around far too loosely but in his case it's more than apt.
And that picture is tremendous. One of a kind. Been to Fabric twice. Second time was him in '07. Smashed the place to pieces. Was also lucky enough to hear him here in the Bay the first time he ever played State-side; back when he was playing techy house and electro. Bombed it. Looking back, that night had quite a lineup. Weathers. Orde from Slam. Funk D Void live back when he was corking out 140 bpm monsters. Pretty standard, I'm sure, by UK standards at the time. But it was quite a treat for us.
He's quite a talent. The stuff he did as Maas way back when on Soma still sounds good.
Just picked up the new Kalabrese (Rumpelmusig) and Cosmin TRG (50 Weapons) albums. Both are sounding damn good on first listen. Between these two, Koze, and Weatherall's Asphodells thing (plus others) this has been a very good year for dancey albums. I was pleasantly surprised by the Cosmin effort. Much of that style, that techno/bass-y stuff, falls quite flat to my ears. But "Gordian" is very good.
I thought some were more than quite funny.
"So hope me god if you are referring to drugs I will disown you"
Good work by Nathan Fiedler, imo.
Dennis Ferrer "Transitions"
Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX "I'll Take Care of You"
The Rapture "How Deep Is Your Love" (a track I think will be remembered more appreciatively than when it came out)
Larry Heard & Mr. White "The Sun Can't Compare" (highly overrated but it has an eternal sound to it; won't date)
Something from Benoit & Sergio. Maybe it's not out yet. But they'll knock out something with staying power. I'm sure of it.
It would be helpful if you lot could list the track you're referencing along with the YouTube link as not all the links have the track title on the top.
My first pick was going to be the Knuckles mix of "Blind" so I'm back to the drawing board.....
For very recent releases, the Vandervolgen mix of Soft Rocks and "Raygsh". For older, the Carl Craig mix of Theo Parrish; "Man With the Red Face" 'though that might be a bit old [EDIT - out since 2000, hard to believe]; Metro Area's "Miura" even though I don't care and never cared for it.
Oh! What about "Lovestory"?
Storm Queen "Look Right Through'
Died today. Knocked out quite a back catalogue in his day. Opened Woodstock too.
I'm sure this will bring out the predicable "look at how stupid the sepos are!" comments but I thought it was worth a post. Pretty amusing watch; if for nothing more than the clothing. In sum, it's a collection of clips from the Florida rave scene of what I think is probably the mid '90's [EDIT: it says 94/95...duh]. It was, if my memory serves me correctly, quite a place back then. DJ Three. DJ Icey. Rabbit In The Moon. Kimball Collins. All played quite a roll in my music upbringing; and all from Florida. Weird, too, 'cause Florida is a dump.
Re Homework, I think you have to look back at it in context of when it came out, it sounded pretty fresh back then, even though it's been copied to fuck now. Same with a lot of albums of that time.
Agreed. It's certainly dated better than a lot of the albums that came out at the time. "Exit Planet Dust" sounds down right peculiar these days. Fatboy Slim's stuff comes across comedic. The vast majority of techno just seems too fast by today's standards. Beyond "Homework", Bangalter's "Trax On Da Rox" stuff is fantastic. And I still like "Aerodynamic"
