I thought we could share stand up or any other type of comedy we like here...

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.

Never thought of it that way but yeah.. they are the original social networks along with mIRC I guess.. frankly, I prefer both to the current "modern" stuff.. except maybe reddit, but I can't really find anything good on there in terms of music

this is a complete mess

maybe we can collectively "fix" it lol

the techno sub is pretty dead

Its amazing but you might want to rent one of these or something similar

Disc 3 is really interesting. Border line chill out in the first 15 minutes and then it just goes insane. Proper fuck with your head mix, reminds me of 5AM with diggers, where the drugs are sorta wearing off and you're wondering if you need to drop again.

There was no need I don't think.. the music and the energy in the room was so good that it just carried me until the end..

150mg @ 1ish and by the time he played sugar daddy around 330 ... weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

disco kings -> vibe       is sublime.. that ~15min window in the club alone made my trip to Miami well worth it : )

forgot how good Cordoba was..

A DJ is only as good as the music he can get at the time - and John Digweed is no different.

The synergy thing is bollocks - 10 boring tunes can't magically be made good unless the listener is a twat who likes stuff more because a 'reputation' is playing it.

Renaissance 2 will always outshine Live in Miami/Argentina because the music and situation was better in 1995.

Maybe if you gave those 10 tracks to 5 different DJs you will end up liking one of the mixes more than all the rest...

The Dutch entry was genuinely brilliant and was utterly robbed by some bearded prick in a dress.

It has a country vibe to it.. still nice

Thank you! I was able to attend the last 3 parties there and they were all amazing!

Also, thanks for signing these in 2012 smile

Makes him closing the set with the end by The Doors even more fitting..

Sad.. it was the only place you can hear him play an extended set in the US

Maybe if Diggers wants to attract more women he should start playing more girlie house music, like he used to at Renaissance

Lee Burridge's sound seems to be well liked amongst females.. not really sure why tho

I know that this post is not going to change much but it looks like john digweed is not making that effort anymore and his sets are just of one size fits all type of sets.

The set I heard in San Francisco last month and then the one at the Vagabond in Miami a week later were very, very different sounding..

Also I've gone from a an EDC stage set to an after party in a small club and the music he played was very much "tailored" to both venues.

And then if you play Slovenia after Cordoba for example.. not much in common there either

hah you could also apply the 1 or 0 scale, it saves time and mental energy

the USofA is underrated..

great vibe/crowd the set was indeed special.. I think that this is his best gig here in the US and also by far the best one during WMC

Vagabond was amazing .. and the recorder was there.

First two hours were absolutely stunning and John built from there and just got better, all new stuff by the sound of it .. plus less of the techno bangers, just hard dark heavy sounds with muscular beats. Pure alchemy.

The club is great too, nice venue without being pretentious .. bargain drinks prices, fuckin' great sound system, low ceiling, dark club packed full of people there for the music. Definitely a few kitchen sinks thrown.

Don't forget the outside area with the fire pit.. great touch

my gf pointed out a few interesting things that I never noticed before but it makes a difference. I don't know if they meant to do it, but their layout is very, very good

There are two different ways to get in and out of each room, and the outside patio area

which allows for much better energy flow and most importantly, you never feel "stuck". The music is also played trough the whole venue so you never feel like you are missing out no matter where you are. Most clubs kind of resemble a "fish tank" .. one way in one way out.

Great venue.

Looks good doesn't it? A big, dark room full of men. Brutal.

That looks awesome!

I am going to two parties back to back.. Mighty SF and then Vagabond Miami if he plays there this year, but I don't see why not. Considering the feedback from his recent shows.. can't wait
