There is no pitch.  People are invested in their ecosystems.  I get it.   What I don't get is people seemingly wanting to slag something they clearly haven't used. 

For the record, I've tried everything except Windows Phone and have arrived at the conclusion I still prefer BlackBerry.  Horses for courses.

I have a blackberry my client gave me. Categorically the worst phone I have ever used.

Did you manage to get the drugs and trash your hotel room?..

One can only wish.  I awoke the next day wondering where the fuck I was, feeling as though Satan himself had shot me in the head and a hangover was actually something that would have been desirable  to have at that point.  Then I stepped out into the festival grounds and I learned of my antics the night before.  I knew something was up when none of my fellow Djs would talk to me and all looked as though they wanted to shoot me... Punters kept pointing at me and saying, "Look, there's the asshooe from last night!". I soon learned that yelling 'You Americans suck! You don't know how to party!!!!" at the top of one's lungs in a gun-toting Republican state, no matter how drunk you are, was perhaps not good for one's wish of wanting to survive in Montana.   To say they didn't take to it too well would be an understatement!

I did manage to ruin a brand new Rane mixer after spilled water on it whilst tripping my arse off on mushrooms and trying to 'DJ' at an afterparty.  I also managed shag a rather fetching college girl who against all odds, somehow fell in love with me over the course of the weekend.

For some reason I can't figure out why I no longer have a DJ career when this kind of behavior was common place for me at gigs.   Any clues as to why?

Vintage Jase japes!

Alive and well? Toasting the competition with its 1.8% market share?

Well, when you consider in what country of which you're speaking... Meh.  They have an image issue that's related to a whole slew of things I could get into with you, but it's pointless.  Having been employed by them, my eyes were opened to some of the shit that goes on in that market sector - including stock manipulation.

One thing I will say is that a lot of people judge them based off of their old operating system.   Sadly, most people haven't tried the 'new' one.  I'll still take my BlackBerry 10 phone over an iPhone 6 or Android device any day.  (shrug)

For what it's worth, HTC and Motorola aren't exactly doing well either.

The 1.8% is global share according to Gartners.

Alive and well.  It hey just released a new phone not too long ago called the Passport and have gone back to targeting their original enterprise market.

Alive and well? Toasting the competition with its 1.8% market share?

Not a big fan of xpander or scorchio, the sander k mix is dece.

Belfunk was proper though.


Still love Xpander…rather large E-Tune

It was quite slow for that time and now it sounds blazingly fast.  I remember Nick Warren played it on a Thursday night at Guvernment.  I hadn't heard it yet and he was one of the select few that had a copy of Xpander.   He didn't even mix it in and let the whole track ride out as his last tune.  I somehow knew it was Xpander.

The best track of that era for me from Sasha was the dark and twisted Rabbitweed.   I played that at a gig in Montana and it threw them for a serious loop.

Rabbitweed is a beast of a tune. Best on the ep for me.

Have been listening to this while packing up for a house move. Part one is brilliant so far mate. Cheers.

Was it ever dubious? It's a killer tune

This thread is proof that the Home Counties was the epicentre of the movement we all now know by the name 'house music'. I'm really priveldged to have been a part of it all.

The Volts sister club in Reading was called Utopia. A less apt name I honestly can't think of. Absolute travesty of a place.

Is Options the one on the river?

The one on the river is now McClusky's but it used to be called something else.

Hold tight while I find out!

Which one was Matrix?

Went to a Sasha night in Windsor once called 'House of Windsor' - somewhere around '94 - can't remember the name of the club but it was as poor as he was good.  Friday night from memory and loads of actual female group dancing around handbags.  Seem to remember having an absolutely HUGE 'coming-up' shit in a khasi with no door and 'sobering up' in the car afterwards at 1am whilst a fight broke out and a copper had a pissed up punter bent face down on my bonnet - none of which is a euphemism...

House of Windsor! I had forgotten all about that. Went there twice IIRC. Was a mission in a mate's Nova the first time. About eight of us in the car.

Craig Dimech (Of Peach, Leisure Lounge etc) used to run a  night in there on Saturdays - loads of fun.

Used to be a few good nights in Kingston - there was a bar in Fife Road that had some decent DJ's on a Tuesday night. I remember seeing Graeme Park and Paul Oakenfold in there. Also the guys that ran the record shop around by the market used to run Sex, Love and Motion.

As for the clubs out of town - The Wok Club at Bojangles in Guildford used to be great - they had some great names in there. Leroy used to play a few decent tracks on Student night too (Wednesdays). Great days. I see that Dance 2 Records is still open in Guildford. Have to admit that I thought that would be long gone now..

The best club in Guildford between 93-96 was the UOS club on the Uni Campus. Amazing residents, brilliant tunes and fantastic atmosphere.

Wok is a blast from the past mate. Cheers! All things considered though, it was all about 'nurses night' at Cinderellas. What was the other one....? Harpers!

Harpers = Tuesdays
Bo's = Wednesdays
Cindy's = Thursdays

Used to live in Guildford with 3 student nurses who worked part time at the above clubs. Happy days.

We probably swapped rohypnols back in the day J.
