Is Twisted Audio still going? Had some good nights there at Babalou.

Think they just do boat parties now

Correct. The boat parties are great too. Get involved.

It's Miami, then.

Just seen it on the otherwise-hateful FB.

Looking forward to this release.

Edit - just seen this has already been covered on the previous page.

Tune in the OP is decent summer fodder but my word that vocal ruins it!

Good remix. They do some really cool stuff.

Having braved the sea of sneering faces which constituted any given night at the Cafe de Paris and Hanover Grand, I can safely say The Cross was one of the most pretentious crowds I've ever mixed with. Pink Stetson overload and blokes smoking menthols - no thanks, although I did have some passable nights in there. Gardening Club had one of the friendliest crowds in London and the back techno room at Club UK was outstanding - full of pogoing nutcases and loons running around in circles shouting their heads off.

The End was pure class though. Somebody mentioned the water fountain...I once dropped a pill out of my mouth into the pan whilst bending for a drink to wash it down. Quickly grabbed and necked it then looked up to see a doorman watching me with a broad grin on his face. More permissible times, they were.

I agree with all of that. Especially the Gardening Club bit. But as someone mentioned earlier you get especially misty-eyed about the club you went to the most.

Never got the love for Gurnmills. Dreadful place and crowd on the whole.

Where's the pics of the sluts then?

Atrocious forumming. For shame.

Goodman's is really good for the actual steak, but everything else is a bit shit.  Hawksmoor is good all round - Air Street is my favourite one, and prefer Seven Dials over Spitalfields.

There's not much to choose between Goodmans and Hawksmoor imo. It's American versus British steak restaurants respectively. Best all round experience for me was Hawksmoor in Spitalfields but the best steak was Goodmans in Canary Wharf (but there's sod all else there, really).

Wine, chips and macaroni cheese in Goodman's are awful.  That's a large difference to me.

Fair enough. I didn't try the macaroni or the chips at Goodmans so can't I comment on those. I bow to your broader experience (and girth, lol).

Pleased we agree on the steak though. That's the main thing.

I'm struggling to see how the wine list is 'awful' though. Too US centric for me, but it's an American steak house so I'll forgive that. But awful?

Sounds the same method. And the app works reliably for you, BF? Basic stuff like you press play and the track starts on the first beat, in synch?

I make a playlist in iTunes, then synch that with the iPad and the app picks them up from there, if that's what you mean chief?

Could this be the beginnings of a fix?!

I'm using my iPad as a controller with the Traktor app, and the NI Z1 mixer. Yeah, rad set-up etc.

Or rather I'm trying to use the app but finding it's really, really unreliable.

For example:

- I press play at the start of a track and it jumps to start a few beats in and it not in phrase
- If i try to use markers, then when i press play the track is out of synch
- Sometimes the whole app just completely freezes

It's doing my nut. I thought digital DJing was meant to be better and easier than two decks and a mixer!

Anyone else had the same issues with this? Any advice?!

Thanks

Great shout. Love this. RITM had a great sound and brilliant production imo.

I can't find a digi of it anywhere though, and my vinyl is wrecked. If anyone could hook me up, I'd really appreciate it. And hey, there's nothing like the appreciation of a random internet person to make you feel all warm inside, is there?

I'll tell you something for nothing; if its live in Amsterdam then he won't sell many copies.

Phoned it in.

Good warm up from Jimmy at the Melkweg. Though he mixed a lot of tracks on breakdowns. On vinyl tho. Lovely sound.

Digweed was off form. Half a dozen clanged mixes. Stopping track dead then starting next. No real flow. Missed phrases. Such a shame. Always expect hours of perfectly mixed music from him.

Nick Warren and Hernan tonight. Assuming we can find the same taxi driver again...

Jimmy van M warming up?!

You absolute beauty. Over the moon with that.

Anybody else heading over next Friday for this annual treat?

Last year's was mint, despite the Melkweg not being the best club space.

Warren and Catananaeoeoeo on the Saturday. (Although I am presently finding the prospect of two consecutive nights of clubbing vaguely terrifying.)

You couldn't pay me £25 to go to that tbh.

Same as that. Can't think of much worse than this on NYE.

Either that or I'm just bitter that parenthood prevents such shenanigans these days.

In response to the original poster, you needed to have backed the project financially by paying a minimum of £12 to get a signed copy of the CD. If you paid more you would have got more e.g. entrance to his gigs, dj lessons etc.

I got the CD last week and if I'm honest it is a slight let down. I'm a big fan of Dave's CDs, but as mentioned above, they can be hit or miss - his GU Cape Town is excellent, whereas his Therapy Sessions 3 wasnt all that IMO

There are a few good parts on the Selador comp, and the mixing/programming is impeccable of course, but it feels very much like his Lithuania release, which I didnt enjoy.

His Therapy radio show is usually top class though!

I paid £5 for the mp3 version. I was interested to see how/if this finance model would work.

I'm underwhelmed with the mixes and the package I received. The music is a monotonous plod-a-thon with few interesting moments or highs. The mp3 release doesn't include the two mixes as single tracks, nor does it include the stand-alone full length-tracks. Instead you receive the mix cut into separate tracks.

I would have been unimpressed if I had got this for free. As it stands, I feel like I've been robbed of a fiver.

Fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

Digweed is more than capable of putting together a decent house set as shown in his boat party mixes.

Um, yes, that's rather my point. Just be nice to hear more of it.

Any links to the boat party set, chief?

Sasha is having a better year for me in terms of my musical fulfilment. Yes, saw him in L.A back in June. Brilliant night.

I bought Live in Slovenia but just didn't 'get it' it's too full on for me for home listening, and samey - don't know how it went down in the club, but not a patch on Live in London which is a thing of beauty..

Agreed - I've really enjoyed the range of music Sasha has played this year (in the recorded stuff I've heard at least). That 6 Mix was great and a really unexpected range of tracks. Still listen to it now.

I didn't get Slovenia either. Too hectic for a recording but as the above notes it may well have been on point in the club that night (those Eastern Europeans love the tougher stuff, right? </casual racism>). It was monotonous to my ears.

I wish Digweed would find a platform to play some different stuff, other than his normal banging house and techno. But perhaps it's his conscious decision to stay peak time and underground. Shame if so. I remember the music he played at that night at AKA years ago (Choice CD launch?!) was amazing - be great if he did some more of this.
