Remember when HOV first came out. The classic supply choke to spur on demand. Rampling caning it whenever he played out. Then dropped on Deconstruction and the fucker actually charted. Ridiculous when you think back how many tunes people were banged up on actually got into the charts and sold a bucketload of units........when i explain that to my US mates they just can't comprehend the mayhem going on the UK/Europe in the 90s whilst they were listening to their post Nirvana whatever
Shame no one has managed to intigrate an IPad into the CDJ landscape to get round lugging laptops into setups . Be nice to whack an iPad into a USB on my 900 and use the screen / playlists / storage etc
Anyone have any experience of the xdj 1000s? My cdj 900s are getting a bit long in the tooth now and scrolling tracks on that screen is a nightmare . Reckon I could px my 900s at guitar center to get some sort of deal
I was going to get tickets for the game but realised it would be the only time to catch up with my mates back home, so a pub with the game on would be the best bet. Mate back home is trying to source a location around the Lpool st area to watch it. Snedds- you know anywhere?
Squarepusher gig looks superb. 808 state too......
Will be back in the old country Sat Oct 24th staying in a windowless room in Shoreditch prior to my semi annual trip to the Isle of Wight to see the folks.
Arrive early and plan to watch the Hammers/ Chelsea game in some hole playing dodgy Nigerian TV
Im way too old and US assimilated to comprehend what is half decent to go out to after that. As I'm out east are there any decent boozers /club/bars that would tickle my fancy? Anyone playing out in the vicinity ? ALFOS ?
Went to the night Mica Paris destroyed Great Gig in the Sky....never forget the crowd reaction of polite horror. Poor cow just ran off stage. Tough tune to pull off that one. Quality gig apart from that. Shame I missed the Bowie appearance .
Echoes on LIG is fooking amazing. Have to have another watch of that now you reminded me.
It's tough listening to what Gilmour puts out now. The last Floyd album was one too many IMO. Perhaps closure on the debate of what got left off TDB, but pretty tough to digest. I thought the out takes from TDB would be more Orb esque, plus with Youth producing thought it would be more palatial.
I liked RTN and saw Gilmour at the Royal Albert Hall during that tour. Was bloody great. Played Echoes which blew me away. Fair play he is touring again and doing MSG here in New York for a few nights which will be pretty amazing, plus fuel the debate if Waters will rock up as he lives in the Hamptons .
I do agree that the producer element of DJing can get rather overly complicated and end up compromising the basics of the tracks played. A producer friend of mine always winces when he hears DJs screwing around too much with tracks as the original artist wanted a track a certain way.
For that reason I never liked sample decks and triggering beats/samples in that manner. Seemed more focussed on hip hop that house. Stems does interest me more depending on what is available . Early days but fuck all out there are the moment so investing in another F1 might be a bit premature . Agree the accapella side if things would be interesting
Judging by what I've seen so far and the tutorials......affirmative.
Never got on with Remix decks in Traktor so never really used the F1, but Stems seems a bit more condusive for house DJs as essentially its just stripping the track into 4 parts you can dick around with using just 2 decks, rather than 4.
Looks like Stems are a bit pricier also - $5 here for the latest Mobilee release. Plus interested to see how many tracks will off the Stem option
