I've always enjoyed the times I've caught you play Quiggers. 

FYI, you can grab it on Amazon.ca for $21.99, so it would be cheaper than grabbing it from the publisher.

Thanks squire.

Used to regularly play 5/6 hour sets, always thought the best approach was stringing together lots of little pre planed bits.

I'm in this camp. When I discover two tracks that 'belong' together, I'll make a note of it. Doesn't necessarily mean I'll play them together in a live setting as the vibe might not lend itself to it, but I would always have that to fall back on.

Take a certain Welsh DJ for instance. Remember when you came home from a party waxing lyrical about how he played this tune with that; perhaps the basslines swapped at just the right time, or the intros/outros met at just the right point...you think they were coincidences? It was the result of hours of practice. People turning their noses up at pre-planned mixes always baffled me.

Finding two records together that when played together make a third - that's what always floated my boat. Hell, I bought decks after listening to Ralph Lawson mix two particular records together on an E-Mix, and I wanted to replicate that mix.

Nowadays the Welshman doesn't bother with it anymore, and the sets are significantly poorer for it - it was his USP.

Nice one Quiggers.  You old git.  Haha

I should clarify I wasn't old enough to go clubbing in 1990!

But I was in 1993 sad

Reckon he's going to bow out with some grace now,  or at least think he should rather than battling to make the cut in each tournament he plays in.

He's nowhere near the same man who did this by any stretch of the imagination:

Best shot in history.

Also the best Nike advert in history.

I got thinking about DJ Buck and Tyler Stadius the other day. Didn't hit the heights of the previous jocks mentioned but seemed to have disappeared without trace all the same.

Good stuff. Unfortunately his attitude is the exception rather than the norm these days.

http://www.dmcworld.net/back-to-mine/en … owell.html

Disregarding the fact he's a bully and a coward, his music is poorly made, formulaic tosh. A perfect example of quantity over quality.

There were 3 people to Brothers In Rhythm: Steve Anderson, Alan Bremner and Dave Seaman.

It would appear Mr. Anderson has moved into the pop world: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elouise

Alan is still doing music as well, but I think more in the world of scoring music for film and commercials, but is mostly doing photography these days - http://www.sproutphotography.co.uk/

Alan works for Apple, don't know where you got that film scoring idea from. He did produce stuff as Freefall (maybe ghost produce others) and also programmed/mixed various compilations for DJs #canofworms

His photography is his bit on the side.

My nominations:

DJ Buck
Pure Science
Serge Santiago

Phil is a teacher now, but still does his own night in Brum every month. He, like you Dan, spun at my wedding.
